A nice guy with a kink!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌏🌍🌍🌏🌎
Character development: 😠☺️😋🥰😘
The heroine: Rosie – Rosie works for Scout from Scoring Chance at the donut truck. She used to be a timid little mouse who was scared to put herself out there. But now she has the baking job she wanted, she is going to business school so she can one day open her own bakery and she is paying for it by being a cam girl online. She streams herself in lingerie doing normal everyday things like painting her nails while men pay to watch her online.
The Hero: Ivan “Fitz” Fitzgerald – He is a NHL player on the Carolina Comets team. He isn’t in to going out with the guys after games, but he isn’t ready to settle down either. He just wants to focus on Hockey for the time being. Though he does have an odd bedroom kink that he likes which makes him a bit afraid to open up to women.
The Story: Rosie has worked hard on improving herself and going after what she wants in life, but when she figures out that she has a crush on Fitz, she is scared. She once had a crush on her ex-best friend and things didn’t work out when he didn’t feel the same, so she is gun shy. Though Fitz is a bit shy as well and he has no game when it comes to women, so it takes a while for things to get going between these two.
I liked the fact that Fitz wasn’t a ladies man and didn’t really know how to talk to Rosie. It made him quite adorable. Fitz is just a good guy all around, you can see it in the way he treats women, the way he takes care of his cat and the way he is with his friends on his team. He and Rosie are just perfect for each other. They are like two sides of the same coin. Though they each have a secret and you can tell from the start that there will come a time when it all comes out.
This is probably the steamiest of all the books in this series, and I like the fact that Fitz has this different kink which lends itself well to the fact that he is a hockey player and away at games out of town so often. It is really sexy and sweet in its own way. And when they get together, they burn up the pages of the book. I also really enjoyed the fact that all the other men on the Carolina Comets team who have fallen in love in previous books get in the picture and dole out love advice when Fitz needs help.
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
