He trusts his gut, she trusts her numbers, and neither trusts the other, as a billionaire's mission to bring hockey to Seattle clashes with his passion for the woman who holds his heart.
Ethan Parker, a billionaire determined to bring professional hockey to Seattle, will stop at nothing to realize his dream. After putting down a hefty deposit on another city's team, the sale is stalled as the parties involved evaluate their options. In the meantime, Ethan’s investors insist he go undercover during the playoffs to get the inside scoop.
Lauren Schneider, assistant director of player personnel, gets no respect from the team's testosterone-loaded staff. When Ethan bursts onto the scene, full of charm and genuinely interested in her opinions, she shares the team's weaknesses and discovers a weakness of her own—for Ethan. But when his true identity is revealed, and he starts cleaning house based on her input, his betrayal cuts deeply on both a professional and personal level. Bound by an employment contract, Lauren reluctantly moves to Seattle to work for the newly christened Seattle Sockeyes and her sexy, infuriating boss.
Lauren and Ethan must come to terms with their passions—for the team, for hockey, and for each other. Will their situation build a frozen wall between them, or will their love burn hot enough to melt the ice shielding their hearts?

I enjoyed this book. Couldn't put it down. Author does a good job with her characters and her hockey knowledge. She takes me away to Puget Sound and Seattle. I love to be drawn into the story with her characters and settings.
This was a huge disappointment! Of course the sappy, cliche ending would end with the guy not sorry for his deceiving actions and the girl would just forgive him!
