Narration Type: Dual Narration
The heroine: Charlene Hoar – She had first introduced herself to Hot NHL player Darren Westinghouse when she went to an away game which ended with him walking her to her room and a steamy kiss. Now she was invited on a coffee date with Darren. He is very intense and stunning to look at. Charlene was surprised when Darren asks her to lunch and then pulls out a non-disclosure agreement.
The Hero: Darren Westinghouse – NHL hockey player, he is the right wing for Chicago and is known as the most mysterious man in the league. His dating history is a well guarded secret. He has now been dating Charlene for two years and she is full of surprises.
The Story: Darren has a lot of stress with Chicago making it to the playoffs and an expansion draft coming up soon. Las Vegas is getting a hockey team and they get to choose one player from each team and any player that doesn’t have a no trade clause in their contract. The team can keep 9 players safe, but so far there is no word on which players will be safe from the draft. So both Darren and Charlene are nervous about the future.
This book definitely had more than a bit of Helena Huntings normal humor and wit. I loved the fact that Charlene and Darren both have mysterious pasts and they don’t communicate as well as they should. They have been dating for two years and both are all in with each other but neither knows the other is.
Charlene is afraid of seeming to needy and pushing too much so she stays at her own place most of the time and doesn’t call or text Darren until he calls or texts her first. Darren sees Charlene as a butterfly who doesn’t want to be caged, so he refrains from putting too many expectations on her for fear of pushing too far and losing her completely.
This book is told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Sebastian York and Stella Bloom. These are two of my favorite narrators. Sebastian has a deep and gravelly voice which is super sexy and Stella has a clear, feminine voice that sounds intelligent and is perfect for Charlene.
