From the first moment I laid eyes on Zoe in that Paris nightclub I knew it was love. Nothing else could explain the intensity I felt for the petite blond. She wasn’t my usual type, but she didn’t even blink at my scars, muscles, and voracious sexual appetite. A big, burly hockey player, brought to my knees by a woman a fraction my size.

Everything was going great. Until I asked her to marry me. I’m Russian and she’s Swiss. The only way we can be together is if we get married, but she won’t even consider it. I don’t know what the hell I’m going to do, but leaving hockey to move to Switzerland isn’t an option.

When my ex-fiance left me at the altar, I was devastated. It took nearly three years for me to get over it and I vowed I’d never let anyone get that close again. Then I met Slava and realized I’d never truly been in love before. He’s everything a man should be—strong, sexy, successful, and tender. But I can’t marry him. I was going to lose him if I couldn’t get over my fears, so I did the only thing I could: I let him go.

When the past rears its ugly head, Slava is the only one who can save me. But letting him back in could destroy us both.


Highly addictive, super sexy and filled with so much heart! With the sixth book in her amazingly yummy Lauderdale Knights hockey series, Kat Mizera is pouring on the sizzle with Slava and Zoe’s story. Fans of the series as a whole will recognize them from a previous book when Zoe and her BFF’s traveled and she hooked up with Slava in Paris. This story is their attempt at a happily ever after. As a whole, I loved this fast paced read, but felt like the drama filled Russian portion of the story was somewhat glossed over and distracted us from the core of the story.

Slava is a sweetheart. He’s sexy and demanding in all the best ways and gentle and endearing when Zoe needs patience. I adored him from start to finish.

Zoe is quite honestly very, very hard to like. She treats Slava poorly and really has no justification for it, so it’s not easy to feel like she deserves such a great guy.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that enjoys a steamy hockey romance series with so many hunky men who simply melt when they find “the one”.
