Once Upon a Power Play
Book 2, Risky Business
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Sidelined by a potentially career-ending injury, the only thing hockey player Ryan Douglas should be thinking about is his recovery. But after sharing a near death experience with a spunky brunette, the only thing on his mind is five and a half feet of sexy sarcasm. And he’ll do whatever it takes to get her back in his bed—even if it means playing dirty.
Chloe Jacobs is done with fairytales. And men. She’s kissed her share of frogs and what’s it gotten her? Dumped by text—again. The last thing she needs is a pushy, arrogant hockey player testing her resolve. Especially one who’s sinfully good with his hands and thinks date-by-blackmail is a perfectly acceptable social convention.
Ryan wants to play games? Fine by her, but this is one faceoff he’s going to lose.
Each book in the Risky Business series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Just want to play
Ryan and Chloe meet while being held up at a local corner store in New York City. Together, they take down the crook. The police are very solicitous to Ryan when they arrive, but do not acknowledge Chloe or her help in taking down the perp.
The next time they meet, it is at Madison Square Garden where Chloe realizes her one night stand is not just anyone - he is an honest to goodness captain of the local NHL team. Ryan cannot wait to get her alone with him.
Chloe just swore off men, after being dumped. She is not sure if she wants to have anything to do with the male species. Beyond sex, she has no use for any of them right now.
Ryan finds her feisty, creative, smart and extremely sexy. He loves that they cannot keep their hands off each other. The question is, can there be a future here?
A really great read! I loved the banter, the sexy times, the struggle, it was overall a keeper for my shelf.
