Michael Boone has just one goal: to get traded to his hometown team so he can be closer to his family. But when a runaway bride who happens to be his coach’s daughter jumps into his car to escape Mr. Wrong, the heat is on ... in more ways than one.

I’m supposed to be a guest at my coach’s daughter’s wedding to a player from another team, but instead I find myself helping her escape it. The timing couldn’t be worse—I have to stay in Coach’s good graces to secure the trade I need. But when the sexy, newly single redhead with legs for days shows up in my life again, I can’t say no.

After escaping marriage to a man who made me feel like I was never enough, I plan to focus entirely on completing my dissertation. Science has never let me down—I can avoid emotional entanglements by focusing on cold, hard data. But when I’m powerfully drawn to a man who is warm and, okay, I’ll admit it—also hard—all bets are off. Mr. Right Now is exactly what I need, until both of us find ourselves wanting the one thing we can’t have—more.


Emotionally charged temptation! With the fifth book in their always addictive St. Louis Mavericks hockey series Brenda Rothert and Kat Mizera delight their readers with a sweet and sexy romance with a touch of forbidden. The characters are developed well and easy enough to like and their back stories both have powerful tidbits that move the storyline. I always enjoy my visit to the Mavericks!

Boone has the rep of a player, but the emotional depth we see from him when the stakes are high with his family really endears him to the reader even before we grow addicted to his spark with Jolie.

Jolie is not as easy to like as Boone is because in all honesty she’s a bit of a flake who lets others control too big of aspects of her life, but she redeems herself a tad when she falls for Boone.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a steamy hockey romance with a tight knit team that loves to welcome the next guys forever love into the picture.
