This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The author of Delayed Penalty returns with the story of a free spirit who believes she’s found forever with a playboy on a singles cruise. Discover why Kelly Jamieson calls the Pilots Hockey series “fun and flirty, warm and sweet.”
Kristen Katsaros wants a life full of adventure and laughter. After a difficult childhood, her motto is to live each day like it’s her last—because it just might be. So when Kristen’s parents send her on a post-grad singles cruise in the Caribbean to meet a Greek husband, she promptly hooks up with the hottest guy she’s ever met. Pasha’s decidedly not Greek, but Kristen gives him a pass because he’s got fun written all over his rock-hard abs.
Pavel Gribov, the cocky playboy of the Detroit Pilots hockey team, can score any girl he wants. But when a teammate drags him on a singles cruise, he can’t resist the chance to help out a drop-dead gorgeous damsel in distress by pretending to be her boyfriend. Before long, the fake fling turns intimate, fueled by something much deeper than lust.
Kristen and Pasha both agree to walk away once the cruise is over, but reality hits like a slap shot when Kristen finds out Pasha lied about everything. Just when she’s ready to start living again, the two stubborn survivors must decide if they can bear to lose the best thing that ever happened to either of them.

Another excellent book in the Pilots Hockey series. This is book four but each can be read standalone without any problem. This is Pavel "Pasha" Gribov's story. He's cocky, sexy, gorgeous, and a commitment phobe of the highest order. When he finds himself on a singles cruise, dragged along by his teammate he knows that the woman are looking for "the one" and that wasn't him. So when a beautiful woman named Kristen Katsaros is looking to fend off all the men on board and wants him to be her "fake" boyfriend he simply can't say no. Kristen was given the cruise by her well meaning but pushy parents as a graduation gift. They want her to find a nice Greek boy and settle down. Pasha is neither Greek or looking to settle down so he's perfect in her eyes! Soon things turn steamy between the two and Pasha begins to rethink his no commitment stance. Problem is he and Kristen have a past. She just doesn't know it. What will she say when she finds out who he really is??? Will this thing be over before it really begins?
I highly recommend this one!!
Good story...started out just ok but the more I read the more I liked it. It started to flow better after the initial start. It had a unique story line with the heroine having Cystic Fibrosis. The hero had an abusive past so it wasn't all light and fun but I liked that they brought out the best in each other. This is the 4th in the series but can be read as a standalone. Despite some heavy subjects, it was more on the low end of angst. No cheating or other woman/man drama and I loved the ending. It has a happy for now ending that I assume will resume with the next standalone in the series. ARC provided by NetGalley.
Heart tugging, enjoyable series
This story tugged at my heart. Kristen was such a strong person, accepting her future. How she sparkled through life was great. Pasha took her honest story to heart, helping her be adventurous, although he played with his truths. Despite his 'dickwaddery', I fell in love with him as well. I recommend this story as well as the rest of the series. This is a standalone but with recurring characters.
I received a copy of this story through Netgalley. This is my unsolicited review as I love to give my opinion for others to decide on what to read.
