Book Blurb:


I guess the party’s over—for now.
When I wake up in the hospital after a DUI car crash, my new NHL team owner gives me an ultimatum – get sober or get packed for the minor leagues. So I talk the talk and go to rehab. I plan to breeze through, get sprung in 30 days or less and hit the road with my new team, the Chicago Blaze. All I have to do is charm my attractive, uptight rehab group leader into thinking I’ve changed—how hard could it be?


I see right through Alexei Petrov.
My calling to save addicts from themselves before they self-destruct is deeply personal. Alexei’s hot and successful, sure. But he’s not okay, and he’s got a lot of work to do before graduating from my group. No one’s ever tested my boundaries like he does, though. I fight my desire and keep things professional, because the stakes couldn’t be higher—it’s not just my job that’s on the line, but also his life. The deeper we fall, though, the more he makes me question the mantra I live by: never trust your heart to an addict.

I MIGHT have read this book from start to finish at work (don’t tell)! I was THAT into Alexei and his story! First off, Brenda Rothert is one of my go-to authors! I know that I will read an AMAZING story once I open the cover (or tap on the cover on my Kindle) of any of her stories. Plus, I love sports stories – even hockey which I know less than nothing about. And a wounded male lead character? I’m SOLD! And Alexei did not disappoint.

You do not read to the other books in the Chicago Blaze series in order to read and LOVE Alexei, but it’s nice to read (at least) Anton’s story for a little of his background since Alexei is his brother.

Alexei and Graysen are both such complex characters. I love a good story where you get to explore the many layers of a character and we get to with both main characters. This story touches on SO many topics and they are all done tastefully, especially because they are mostly set in a rehab center.

Quite possibly, Alexei might be my favorite Blaze player – don’t tell the others!!

5 stars!
