Genre: Contemporary Romance/BDSM
Book Length: (Est.): 351 Pages
The game has always cast a shadow over Oriana Delgado’s life. She should hate the game. But she doesn’t. The passion and the energy of the sport are part of her. But so is the urge to drop the role of the Dartmouth Cobra owner’s ‘good daughter’ and find a less…conventional one.
Playmaker Max Perron never expected a woman to accept him and his twisted desires. Oriana came close, but he wasn’t surprised when she walked away. A girl like her needs normal. Which he can’t give her. He’s too much of a team player, and not just on the ice.
But then Oriana’s father goes too far in trying to control her and she decides to use exposure as blackmail. Just the implication of her spending the night with the Cobras’ finest should get her father to back off.
Turns out a team player is exactly what she needs.

I’m having a difficult time finding the words to describe this book. WOW! Oh my goodness! And who knew hockey could be so interesting! All come immediately to mind.
For me there was only one negative; characters are sometimes called by their first names and sometimes by their last names. I honestly had to make a cheat sheet so I’d visually be able to place everyone, although that was sometimes difficult too, but only because there were so many of them.
Now onto the good stuff and oh boy there is lots of good stuff! Oriana is someone who has lived her life to make other people happy and once the curtain is pulled from her eyes exposing the true colors of those closest to her she basically snaps and decides to do whatever it takes to free herself from the world she hates and begin living for herself. And it takes Max’s line (all five of them) to help her make that initial break.
Max is sweet and endearing, but oh how he has his kinks. Dominik has the voice and presence of a true master, and he loves dominating her, but only in the most nurturing ways. Sloan is a freak. Sometimes I hated him, sometimes I wanted to smack the daylights out of him, but some crazy part of me always loved him. Tyler is the rookie in every sense of the word, but he’s so sweet that it’s hard not to like him. And TJ, he’s the older quiet man with kids of his own and the problems to boot. Together they help Oriana through her transition.
I honestly don’t think I’ll look at hockey the same way. Every time I see a hockey stick I’m going to think of duct tape. And every time I watch a game I’m going to be imaging which ones ‘play’ together.
The sex scenes are drawn out and intense. If anyone were to ask me I’d say the first sex scene lasts like three or four chapters if you include the foreplay. Which I had absolutely no problem with! I loved this book, I couldn’t put it down, and it moved up to the top of my favorites list. I’ll surely be reading it again and again and again!
If I could give this more than 5 stars I would!
My Favorite Character: I’m going to have to say Sloan. With him it was all straightforward. He did and said what he wanted, even if he ended up putting his foot in his mouth when it came to Oriana.
My Favorite ‘Oh My Goodness’ Moment: There were so many of these, but the one that pops into my head first is: a telephone call mixed with some old fashioned household engineering. I never would have thought so much fun could be had from simple everyday items. I discovered a new meaning for Fire and Ice.
Overall, I give this 5 stars!
