The Hero: Bishop Winslow – recent addition to Seattle’s expansion team. Bishop helps out his brother who is a college student and has type one diabetes. Bishop wants to make enough money playing pro hockey to set him and his brother up for life. However, his plans hit a snag when he injures his groin in a pre-season game.
The heroine: Stevie Beauman – pink haired sister of expansion team captain R.J. from A Lie for a Lie. Stevie recently finished her graduate degree in Physiotherapy with a focus in sports medicine. On her birthday, she comes home early to find her boyfriend with another woman.
The Story: Bishop meets Stevie in the hall of his penthouse apartment on the night when she catches her boyfriend. She was having a bad day and having to move into her brothers penthouse in the middle of the night wasn’t helping any. The two are immediately acrimonious and end up having a very odd relationship from the start.
Bishop doesn’t like wearing clothes while at home since he is always warm and has a thing for non-standard underwear. After seeing him in nothing but his shorts a few days in a row, she decides to give him a taste of his own medicine. I really enjoyed these two and their banter. And the intimate scenes were sizzling, especially due to the fact that his groin injury made them wait quite a while.
Helena Hunting does sports romance like nobody’s business and I loved every minute of it. I am not big on watching sports, but I do love Hockey and Hockey players. The narration is dual POV and dual narration, done by Jacob Morgan and Erin Mallon. Erin Mallon is great as usual. I like that she talks pretty fast and her man voice is much better than most female narrators and Jacob Morgan has a deep and sexy voice that I really enjoy.
