Hockey star Brett Sillinger's never been afraid of a little trouble. But when his personal life ends up in the tabloids, he knows his career is on thin ice. Luckily, a new team decides to take a chance on him. All he has to do is keep head in the game. But when temptation walks up wearing black knee-high boots, looking for one night of nameless, no-strings passion, well, what's a guy to do?
Chelsea London is looking to misbehave. What's being good ever gotten her, besides getting dumped and passed over for a big promotion at work? But her one delicious night of rebellion has unexpected consequences--her hot one-night stand is the latest addition to her father's hockey team. And suddenly, one night of bad-girldom isn't nearly enough.
But one false move, and Brett might spend this season in the penalty box...
Hot! Hot! Hot!
This was such an excellent story. It was so deliciously, sexy and super off the charts-Scorching-Hot, but more than that, I loved the flirty fun vibe it had going on. It was really entertaining, so incredibly sweet, had a bit of drama and some emotional moments. I had so much fun reading it, and I could not put this down.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching them connect, and there were so many great details and moments that just filled me up. I laughed, I smiled, and I sighed throughout the book as Chelsea and Brett’s relationship grew. I was expecting Brett to be this player of a man, but who I got was so incredibly kind, caring and sweet.
I love a great Romance and this delivered from the first page to the last. I’m absolutely smitten with every little detail that makes up this story! LOVED IT! #Swoon!

Big Bad Wolf Or Dream Come True
Brett Sillinger has one goal and one goal only, to focus on hockey. With his career on the line, the last thing Brett needs is trouble. But when trouble shows up at the hotel bar in a sweater, skinny jeans, and black thigh high stiletto boots....his body overrides his mind. Even more perfect is the fact that this stunning beauty is offering him a night of no-strings attached, no names s*x. Imagine his surprise when he walks into a charity event and is introduced to Chelsea, his new coach's daughter.
Chelsea London has always been the girl with the clipboard, the one with lists, the responsible one. When her brother is promoted to the job she thought she so desperately wanted, she was livid. She was done being the good girl! She set her sites on the only guy in the bar not in a suit. One thing led to another and she left after experiencing the best night of her life. Not thinking she'd ever see her man in the leather jacket again.
When one night turns into two, then more they are left wondering if what they have is the real thing. Brett's ex, his career, and his boss all seem to be against him. So much so that he actually begins to believe his mom's words from long ago....he's cursed! Both scared, they push each other away when things get difficult. Do fairy tales come true?
I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this novel!!! I read it in one sitting, not even stopping to eat. This is my first Taryn Leigh Taylor novel and was delightfully surprised I found a wonderful new author to enjoy. The story flowed easily and didn't leave me guessing. I absolutely adored the good girl trying to be bad interlaced with the Big Bad Wolf and Three Little Pigs references! Too "cute". I can't wait to find out what lays ahead for the rest of the team. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
