I'm the guy the entire team loves to hate. Not only am I one of the Sockeyes' best players, but I make sure everyone knows it. No woman has ever held my heart until I meet Tia. She's everything I am, gorgeous, rude, arrogant with a capital 'TUDE, and we're both concealing soul-shattering pain. Together we're fire and ice, a combo I can't resist and one that has me worried I've finally succumbed to the worst four-letter word in the English language--LOVE.

After my mother's tragic death, I've lashed out and driven away everyone who ever cared about me. The pain is so great, I feel I don’t deserve friendship or love. Along comes Bryce. We're kindred spirits. He's as damaged as I am. Out of our grief, something special begins to sprout, but our tendency to destroy anything good in our lives threatens the best thing that's ever happened to us. Only Bryce refuses to give up while I'm finding old habits die hard. Barricading my heart is easier than taking the risk of being hurt again.


What a match! With the eighth book in her Scoring Series hockey world Jami Davenport pours on the dysfunction like a rockstar when pairing conceited Bryce with snarky Tia and showcasing the wounded souls beneath the surface. The connection between the characters is quick and easy to become hooked on. I enjoyed their fast paced story and the emotional ups and downs they each had to confront. I’m enjoying this series a lot!

Bryce comes across as brash and cocky, but he’s a truly nice guy at heart. I enjoyed watching him give up some of the control he has had on his play and start to become a true team player.

Tia was much nicer than I was expected based on interaction in prior books in the series. She actually has good reason for her attitude and adjusts well as kindness begins to warm her soul.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who enjoys a hockey romance with a close knit group of teammates each falling for their one true love one guy at a time.
