Book Blurb:

From the author of the On the Line and Fire on Ice hockey romance series comes a sultry novel featuring a brooding NHL player who’s hell on skates—and the no-nonsense woman who forces him to clean up his act.

Miranda: Even though I’m broke, putting myself through college, and working two jobs, I’m trying to make the best of it. Meanwhile, Jake Birch, hockey’s hottest bad boy, lives in a luxury hotel in downtown Chicago—and still complains about every little thing in his penthouse. But after I tell him off, instead of getting me fired, Jake requests me as his personal housekeeper. Then he starts flirting with me. Only I’m not flirting back . . . at least, I’m trying not to. Did I mention that he’s hockey’s hottest bad boy?

Jake: I’ve met the best woman at the worst possible time. Miranda is the fire to my ice—a sexy, charmingly candid spark who breaks down my walls and reminds me what it’s like to feel again. But I’m being forced to date my team owner’s daughter to keep my job, so I can’t be caught with Miranda. Still, we’re getting closer—until Miranda finds out about my “girlfriend.” And that’s not the only secret I’ve been keeping. But Miranda’s the one I want . . . even if she doesn’t believe me.

I LOVE these hockey books! I know nothing about hockey but that doesn’t take away a bit of my enjoyment of these books!

This book reminded me a little of Maid in Manhattan. At least reading the synopsis. But it’s MUCH better than that movie – no disrespect to Ralph Fiennes or J-Lo.

Miranda is a busy busy girl who doesn’t have time to give numbers to a spoiled rich guy who sleeps with a stripper. And cocky hockey center Jake is not on Miranda’s list. She needs to work her 2 jobs and go to school.

For the first time ever, a woman isn’t interested in Jake the hockey center/team captain. She isn’t intimidated by his sex appeal, money, or hockey status. And she tells him like it is. And she calls him on his attitude and helps him.

Jake isn’t just a rich hockey player, he’s got rituals and routines and reasons for the way he is. And Miranda is the first person Jake can talk and share things with and she heals him.

5 stars!
