Duncan Armstrong may be an NHL star, but he’s a country boy at heart. His ultimate fantasy is going home with the Stanley Cup, not a gold-digging airhead who aspires to be a trophy wife and nothing more. Newly single and hoping to enjoy a night out with his teammates, he ends up hitting it off with a down-to-earth waitress who’s a complete breath of fresh air—until Duncan learns that she’s a part-time model. He tries to forget about her, but their sizzling chemistry has him coming back for more.
Amber is working hard to put herself through school, and has zero interest in dating a professional athlete. She’s seen firsthand how fame and fortune can mess with their heads—her father’s brilliant football career ended in a firestorm of addiction and infidelity. So Duncan’s attentions immediately have her on the defensive. Still, there’s something different about him. And once she stops trying to freeze him out, irresistible temptation turns into all-consuming passion.

Duncan may live in the city now, but he’s a farm boy through and through, right down to the cow’s milk. He’s sweet, caring, and likes to take care of others, which is how he keeps ending up with women who only want to use him for his money. It’ll harden a heart that’s for sure.
Amber is only focused on finishing school and earning enough money to stay afloat and help her mom out. She doesn’t need anyone to help and surely doesn’t want it. She learned the hard way that men, professional athletes more specifically, couldn’t be trusted and working in a bar owned by a hockey player was probably a bad idea, but it was good money. She never expected to like one of the regulars, even if he was a hockey player.
Two people with trust issues who can’t stay away from each other no matter how much they know they should.
Icing is funny and entertaining. Some of the crazy things that come out of Duncan’s mouth reminded me so much of his sister, Lovey, from book one, Major Misconduct. The attraction between Duncan and Amber is electrifying and they have no problem in the creating sparks department.
My Favorite Laughable Moment: When Duncan and Amber are discussing foot massages and somehow he managed to sneak in grandkids. They are funny together. And their chemistry is undeniable.
