The Vegas heat just kicked up a notch with the arrival of ice hockey’s newest expansion team – the Sin City Saints.

Maverick Hagen’s fall from grace was more like a crash landing. His record-breaking career ended after a fight with an opponent over a woman left him with a broken leg, or so the pundits thought. Returning to the sport he loves as the captain of the league’s new expansion team, the Sin City Saints, his lucrative contract comes with just one rule—no romantic distractions.

Gia Ford also makes her living playing a game—poker. The rounder has hit her stride in Vegas, quietly building her bank account one casino at a time. She’s got a score to settle, and nothing will get in her way—not even the sexy hockey player who’s willing to lose money just to see her in action. Maverick attracts attention, upsetting Gia’s under-the-radar game.Maverick and Gia can’t afford to give in to their magnetic attraction, with his career rebounding and her winnings growing. But the hotter their chemistry burns, the harder it is to deny. So will they or won’t they? In Vegas, there’s only one way to settle it—a bet, of course.

 

Spot on sexual tension! With the kick off to a brand new Sin City Saints hockey series Brenda Rothert delights her readers with a story filled with emotional upheaval along with twists and turns we never could have expected. The pace is fast, the connection with the characters is easy and the overall story kept me reading. I’m looking forward to more to come in the series!

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a hockey romance with emotional depth and a strong back drop of hang ups they have to work through to get to that happily ever after.
