He’s a fighter in the rink, but he’s about to learn that playing nice can help you score... 

As team captain and enforcer, Patrick O'Doul puts the bruise in the Brooklyn Bruisers. But after years of hard hits, O'Doul is feeling the burn, both physically and mentally. He conceals his pain from his coach and trainers, but when his chronic hip injury becomes too obvious to ignore, they send him for sessions with the team’s massage therapist.

After breaking up with her long-term boyfriend, Ari Bettini is in need of peace of mind. For now, she’s decided to focus on her work: rehabilitating the Bruisers’ MVP. O'Doul is easy on the eyes, but his reaction to her touch is ice cold. Ari is determined to help O'Doul heal, but as the tension between them turns red hot, they both learn that a little TLC does the body good...

Marie's Thoughts
Wow! I love, love, love, love, love this book! It’s a perfectly written romance that has all of the elements necessary for a feel-good love story.  A rough around the edges but gooey in the middle hot guy… check.  A beautiful and vulnerable woman with a bit of a spitfire personality… check. A great theme… check. An intimate situation that sends their bodies in to a confused frenzy… check! Ramped up sexual tension… double check!! Throw it all together, and in the end, it’s perfection.

The story of Patrick and Ari is wonderful. It’s exciting, sweet, and the two of them have tremendous chemistry. I can always count on Sarina Bowen to concoct yet another wonderful romance that’s impossible to put down!

I read and reviewed a paperback copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
