I’m the star defenseman for the Portland Icehawks and the guy everyone loves to hate. Not that I don’t deserve their hatred. After all, how can you like a guy who doesn’t even like himself?

Michella is the one woman I can’t let go, yet I can’t be with her, either. We’re like drugs to each other, and addictions aren’t a good thing. I’ve messed up a relationship before and destroyed the one person I loved. I can’t do the same to Michella.

To make matters worse, Michella’s new job with a private investigative agency puts her in the crosshairs of Portland’s elusive serial killer. I have to protect her, even if staying causes more destruction than leaving.


Sexy and addictive goodness! Jami Davenport is pouring on the angst with her Portland Icehawks series and I am loving it! Book three brings us broody Briggs’ story and a deeper dive into the serial killer that has been tormenting the town. The characters are easy to like and I found myself rooting for them from the very start. There wasn’t a huge amount of in depth development into their relationship, but the store as a whole was really enjoyable with drama, romance, angst and suspense all pulling at us throughout. I’m looking forward to more to come in the series!

Briggs has been trouble throughout the series, but we knew there was a story there from the very first time he stepped onto the page, so this book gets us there with all the delectable angst. I love him!

Michella has been coasting through life following one dream after another but she finally has her heart set on what she wants to do with herself … and it just so happens it puts her right smack in the middle of a bullseye leading to the elusive serial killer. I enjoyed her.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a hockey romance with close knit teammates each falling for their forever while some suspense swirls around the plot.
