Book Description/Synopsis: 

Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type—confident, sexy, smart . . . his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.

Olivia has been keeping a secret. While Garrett lives for the next thrill, Olivia’s not sure she’ll live to see the next day. She’s undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn’t have time for a relationship with no guarantees—especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won’t take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can’t help falling for him . . . hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything—but you can’t score without taking the tough shots.

First off let me just say, WOW that is an emotional book! Some of the obstacles put in love’s path in this book are the typical ones, like jealousy, but then there’s much bigger ones that that will tug at your heartstrings and make your emotions soar with empathy.

Garrett is the typical bachelor hockey player. He’s gorgeous, funny, and only has one night stands. He’s not opposed to relationships, but he’s never had the inkling to have one. Not until he meets Olivia that is.

Olivia is sweet and caring and has a serious health problem that is life limiting, which is why for once in her life she wants to live a little carefree for a while and enjoy life. What a more perfect way to enjoy herself than to tackle one sexy as sin hockey player. She knows he’s a player and she’s fine with being another notch on his belt. Only problem with that is he isn’t treating her like she’s disposable.

Garrett is such an emotional rollercoaster that tissues may be a good thing to keep handy while reading. It’s filled with humor, gut wrenching sadness, and steaming hot sex…WOW the combination!

I honestly think that even though this is part of the Cold Fury Hockey series that it can be read as a standalone, although I would suggest reading Alex first as it’s definitely worth the read. And next comes Zach; I cannot wait for that one.

My Favorite Laughable Moment: I about died when Garrett caught Olivia ogling him in his sleep. All the things her mind was contemplating doing and then…BAM!, caught in the act. 

My Favorite Sweet Moment: There are several very sweet moments in this book, but my favorite is all the things Garrett does, even if it makes him late for practice.

Garrett Samuelson is a one-night stand king. Player of all players. He loves women but not as much as he loves hockey. Since being picked up by the Cold Fury Hockey team he feels like he can finally make a home somewhere. Hanging out with his teammate and best friend, Alex, and his fiancé Sutton brings something very interesting into his life.

Olivia Case is Sutton’s cousin. She holds a secret that she is not sure she wants to share with the world. Meeting Garrett at a cookout and knowing his image might just be what she needs to distract herself from the complications of her illness. Why not live a little?

Garrett instantly falls for Olivia and has no idea how to even be in a relationship but when he finds Olivia home and sick he automatically feels a need to come to the rescue. Finding out the truth about Olivia will have him making a choice that he has never made before. He knows that he likes her a lot but when he finds out about the secret she’s been hiding he knows he still wants to spend time with her.

Being the second book in the Cold Fury Hockey series I was very excited to get my hands on this. This is a very emotional book and dealing with a topic that most people fear, I fell in love with these characters. I love how Alex and Sutton were a big part of the story. The chemistry is amazing and heartfelt. Olivia is a very strong woman that does not like to ask for help. Garrett is a true gentleman and just wants to love her as long as he can have her. This is just an amazing story of true love.

This is overall a great series and would recommend to anyone that enjoys a great read, and some HOT hockey stars.

My Favorite Moment: I really love when Olivia watches Garret play for the first time. Talk about a new way to watch hockey!
