Years of training are about to pay off for hockey player Nikola Vereshkova. A call to play in the big league means he can finally come through for those who need him. His relocation to Chicago comes with built-in friends - and one gorgeous enemy who was less than impressed with him after their first encounter. Sadie Alexander knows all about the drastic measures men will take just to get laid. She's not only experienced it firsthand but lived to tell about it in her online column, Sadie Says. And even though she's a die-hard independent woman on the outside, the recent marriage of her best friend has her secretly feeling more alone than ever. Getting close to a foul-mouthed Russian hockey heartthrob was the last thing Sadie expected. And the timing couldn't be worse, since she's sworn off men for a writing assignment. The line between love and hate is eroding, and Niko and Sadie find themselves in deeper than they ever expected. Could something that started out wrong end up being just right?
