This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The Carolina Cold Fury’s hot new star shows his bad-boy teammates that even nice guys can score big in this steamy hockey romance from the bestselling author of Ryker and Hawke (“Sexy, emotional, and fantastic!” —Sandi Lynn).
The ice is a cold mistress. As the league’s most eligible goalie, Max Fournier has access to his fair share of willing puck bunnies, but right now he’s more interested in bringing home another championship than a one-night stand. A romantic at heart, Max believes in love; he’s just not great at relationships. So when he finally meets a nice girl who’s not blinded by his celebrity, he’s feeling the heat—and the pressure to save her from herself.
Between working two jobs and raising her sister’s kids, Julianne Bradley doesn’t have time for sports—or men. All she knows about Max is that he’s the sexiest customer to ever grace her gas-station counter. And he sees past her tired eyes and makes Jules yearn for things she can’t have: a glamorous fling, a passionate lover, and the time to enjoy both. Max makes her feel like Cinderella, even though Jules has enough baggage to crush a glass slipper. Luckily, he’s no prince—only a fierce competitor determined to win her heart.

Sweet and romantic!
I'm in love with this book! This was a wonderfully sweet, romantic story. If you need a low angst read that's full of sweetness, this is the book for you!
Max is a famous hockey player that swooped in and swept Jules off her feet. The fact that he wasn't deterred by her having custody of her 3 niece and nephews made him that much more attractive. I loved the approach the author took with this couple. They talked things out like mature adults instead of the usual messy misunderstandings. Max wasn't a manwhore and we didn't really have to deal with hockey whores causing rifts between the two. Jules struggled with dating Max because she didn't want to be see as a gold digger but Max was so good with talking her down from the negativity. There was several epilogue updates that I adored and this was just overall a refreshing read! I highly recommend it! ARC provided by NetGalley.
I never pass up reading books from Sawyer. She always has a real story line. I have read the previous books. This is a bit better. Max is the goalie for the Cold Fury hockey team. He stops at the gas station for snacks and runs into two teens bothering Jules at the register. Max scares them away. He wants to meet her. Spoiler. Jules lost her sister and got to take her children, Annabelle, Levy and Rocco. She knows who he is and doesn't want anything from him. She is just making it but won't take help. It was fun to watch Max getting along with the kids. He really wants to help her. He gets her to come to games and then she gets dissed from the jealous "Puck Bunnies". It bothers her. Then on top of that is the father who abandoned the family and wants to get his kids back. Major Spoiler. This book will pull you right into the story. There is lots of emotions and action in the story. Stop and take a chance on this book. It is an adult read toward the end. It's your choice to read or not. Please give this book a chance. Enjoy! I volunteered to read and review this book.
I just love Max!!!!
Wow! I didn't think anyone would ever complete with Ryker being my favorite Cold Fury player, but Max is sure giving him a run for his money. Maybe I have a thing for goalies! ;)
Max Fournier is trying to win the starting goalie position since Ryker announced his retirement. Max had the job until he got hurt but now that he is healthy he wants his position back. Max is tall, built and good looking but he also has a heart of gold. Max also has love for junk food!
One night Max stops into a convenient store to buy his junk food and he's captivated by the cashier, Julianne. This first meeting was too funny! What those boys did that their sister was wrong, but so fun! Instantly Max is smitten and wants this lady in his life.
Julianne "Jules" Bradley is having to take care of her two nephews and one niece ever since her sister passed away four months ago. Their father is not really in the picture so Jules is doing everything she can, including working two jobs, to raise these kids. She is beyond exhausted and the last thing she needs in her life is a guy, especially a very persistent one.
I just loved how Max was with Jules and the kids. He is the dreamy guy every girl always longs for. Max always wanted to help Jules out but she was having a hard time accepting his help. I loved how he pushed her into her favorite down time passion!
I just adored the path these two had taken to get to their happy ending. It was wonderful and perfect for them! I loved the way Max proposed too! Very clever! Awesome characters with a great story line! 5 star all the way!
