Being stranded in remote Canada with a hottie?
Wasn’t part of my summer plans

Dump my cheating ex? Check.

Land an amazing job with Boston’s professional hockey franchise? Check.

Fall stupidly in love with hockey’s favorite bad boy? Ugh.

After wasting years of my life with the wrong person, I told myself all I wanted was a little no-strings fun. Enter Alex Braun—a wealthy, handsome, notorious playboy who’s equal parts charming and dangerous as hell to my wounded heart.

After enduring a very public breakup of his own, the sexy player doesn’t want to be anyone’s forever. Too bad he barreled his way into my heart, instead of just my bed.

But this professional athlete knows a thing or two about competing, and he won’t let go so easily.


Sweet, sensual and satisfying! With the second book in her Looking to Score hockey series Kendall Ryan brings a familiar face to the forefront as Alex moves on from his breakup and on to brighter skies. The story is sweet yet sexy and tempting yet comfortable. I’m looking forward to more in the series.

Alex is coming off as a nicer guy than we got the impression about in his ex Eden’s story. Two totally different sides to the breakup leave things a bit perplexed, but his match up with Aspen was very satisfying.

Aspen is a sweetheart. She’s been used and hung out to dry before, so she’s understandably gun shy, but the opportunity to have a no strings fling with the likes of Alex is too tempting to resist … only feelings start to grow, and that easy fling is looking like more!

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who likes a fast paced hockey romance that is light on the hockey, but filled with lots of tender moments.
