Summary: The NHL’s most charming player is ready to score a hat trick on and off the ice…
As the star forward for the Boston Blades, I’ve earned a reputation for no-strings attached hookups and a mean slapshot that has all the ladies purring — but it’s never been the one woman I want to see all fired up and ready to score. Boston’s own Ice Queen Gwen James has had my emotions all tangled up for years. I’ve played the games. I’ve sat on the sidelines.
No matter her reasons, I’m done being benched.
When she approaches me for a second chance, I accept on one condition: she’s got to prove she’s all in. No kissing. No sex. It just might kill me to keep my hands to myself, but it’s time Gwen knows what it’s like to beg.
At the end of the day, I play to win, and I want what no other man has ever had…her heart. (From Goodreads)

Long distance blows.
There’s really no way to sugarcoat it. Recently, my boyfriend of four years temporarily relocated to Oklahoma City for work. I went from seeing him almost 25/8 to not at all. It’s a rough transition to make, no matter how long you have been together. It’s only been two weeks, but I’ve survived so far. Continue reading “Long Distance – Surviving Those First Two Weeks”
Summary: From the outside, Ellen has it all: a glamorous new life in a sun-soaked city more like a movie set than the small Northern town where she grew up, and her very own McDreamy. But being married to a gorgeous, brilliant cardiac surgeon also means standing in his shadow, putting aside her dreams to follow his—and having way too much time home alone to think about how much she’s given up to follow him to California.
While Ellen loses touch with herself and the people she loves, she’s welcomed by sophisticated women who approach life and marriage in ways that make her question her small-town values. When she learns shattering information about her husband—and then meets an irresistible, dangerously attentive man—the questions she asks herself become more urgent.
Who are we without our work, home, family and friends? What is happy? (From Goodreads)

Summary: He (was) the hottest player on the ice.
She’s a (struggling) sports journalist looking for her big break.
Charlie Denton has been handed the most impossible assignment from her stick-in-the-mud boss: get an exclusive interview with the NHL’s golden boy, Duke Harrison.
The catch? She’s got eight days or she’ll be demoted. Fired. Kicked to the curb – No way is she letting her future rest on the broad shoulders of a goalie who is at least three seasons past his prime.
She has eight days to convince Duke that the loyal fans of The Cambridge Tribune (annual circulation: 1,000) are dying to know about his life, on and off the ice. Eight days to stand toe to toe with a man who is pure sex on a stick. Eight days to remember that every mind-blowing kiss is nothing but a power play. (From Goodreads)
