What Lovey wants Lovey gets? Or so it seems all the time with her brother Duncan. He loves her sister but her moving in his condo not good. Lovey has no idea what to do right now. For being 24 years old she’s ready to sow her wild oats not ready to settle down. Her ex-boyfriend Richard didn’t get this and put the pressure on her. Now living with Duncan she expected some brotherly love not to be shocked by the most sexiest gorgeous hockey roommate Marc Dupuis to ignore her flirts. She knows it is wrong to make the moves on her brothers roommate but he is hot. Can she just leave things alone and this sex on a stick hockey player to be a good little sister?

Marc Dupuis is in a cluster fuck situation when he meets his roommates little sister. Duncan always referred her as a flake and always getting what she wants. Seeing her is like a punch in the gut seeing all her beauty and sexiness. There is a code every man friends with another man must uphold at all times and that’s not nail their little sister. Yet one accidental kiss from this woman and he’s neck deep in sexual frustration. One thing leads to another and now he wants more than just sneaking around her brother his best friend.  After his last serious relationship he knows this thing with Lovey is more than just sex. Can he convince her that this is the real thing between them?

Kelly Jameison you have made this readers favorite list. I have to say I’m really loving these romances involving sports especially hockey. Marc just got out of a serious relationship because he wasn’t romantic enough. Have to say wrong everything about home screams sexy and romantic.  Even though it started off as just sex you can tell Marc is so into Lovey. Now Lovey is more than what she shows to people. She might play a flake but beneath this crazy flirtatious girl is a woman who knows what she wants. Together these two were awesome and can’t wait for the other players in the Aces team.

Jessica Montgomery is the type of daughter that is obedient, polite and never quits a job. Well that was until her father pushed her last button and now she`s ready to live. Her job was to get Logan Wilde to work at one of her family`s restaurant using any means she can to seal the deal. By any means of course meaning using what GOD gave her in the woman`s look. Tired of being told what to do she gets fed up. Logan is nothing like what she expected in a chef. Here is a guy who doesn`t care about the fame and fortune but instead of the people. Adaline, his restaurant shows his touch in every way from the way he cooks delicious meals to how he treats people. In a way though Jessica feels incompetent next to him and wonders what exactly she has been working for all these years. Something in Logan makes her remember the person she used to be. The woman who loved outdoors and who took the time to smell the flowers. She knows this thing with Logan might be temporary but the more she`s with him is becoming harder to leave. Can a woman who worked 24/7 behind a desk in the corporate world be the woman Logan needs?

Logan Wilde knows he is a lucky man. Years ago he was going through a dark and dangerous path but one person helped him change. If it wasn`t for his grandmother Ada and the youth camp he was sent to his life will be different right now. He knows there are still some people now waiting for him to mess up. So it comes as a nuisance that Jessica and her father won`t leave him alone. He`s not looking for fame or money only to live life.

Alec O`Meara is shocked. It`s been months since his wife passed away from Cancer and so far has not felt anything for a woman. Well that was until he meets Annie Davis. Something about this woman sparks his interest in a way he never had before with his wife. They`re totally opposite from each other but the more he stays away from her the more harder it is stop going to her. His life is hockey yet when he`s with Annie he wants to be more than just a big hockey player. A woman like Annie who is beautiful, sexy and smart can wreck a man especially one like him. He knows she is independent and strong but something about her makes him feel over protective. Can he convince Annie she is nothing like his ex wife and this thing with her is beyong anything he thought of having again?

Annie Davis is a good therapist and a woman just wanting to be loved and accepted. For years she has to compete with her sister. Her mother doesn`t see the great things Annie has done or the beauty in her. Of all the negativity from her mother having Alec`s attention towards her just confuses her. Annie knows she is no beauty like her sister so wonders why a sexy and hot hockey player like Alec will be interested in her. He says she is nothing like his ex wife who passed away yet the more shes with him she is learning things about her. One big thing is their hair color which just scares her. Is Alec only with her because she resembles his dead wife? Or is it just possible that a man like him really wants her for who she is?

This is the first I have read from Veronica Forand and Susan Scott Shelley and have to say WOW. I loved that Annie is your average woman yet secretly just wants to be loved. I hated the way her mother treated her like she wasn`t worth anything unless she was pretty on the outside. The attraction that Alec and Annie have is purely genuine to the point where I wanted to kill of the mother. I mean Annie is beautiful inside and out and for her to doubt that a man like Alec could be into her was crazy. Right away these two belong to each other and these two authors did such a great job in bringing them together. Definitely can`t wait for more from these authors.

Zach Grantham had it all. He had a woman in his bed, a little boy and a promising career for the Carolina Cold Fury team. Yet everything changed with one accident and now he`s struggling to be a single father and possibly a career in hockey ending. His main priority right now is his little boy yet Kate Francis is distracting him. She is not beautiful so she says but something about her is sparking his interest like no other woman has done. This is heartbreaking for him for his little boy needs a mother and he couldn`t love her when she was alive. Being with Kate is making him feel like a slimeball for having these feelings for the nanny herself. What should have been just a professional relationship changes when he sees what she has been hiding beneath the baggy clothes. Can he just go back to a normal life when everything inside him wants the nanny?

Kate Francis knows she is not beautiful or what men like Zach want. Yet something about the passion he sees in his eyes scares her. All her life she has hidden her real self from men like Zach. One incident made her weary of a man`s attention yet something about Zach is making her yearn for more than attention from this hot hockey player. Her main job is to care for his son not to care for him. She`s what you call a nerd yet something about her is grabbing Zach`s attention and it scares him. Being a nanny one is not supposed to fall for the employer yet her heart wants him no matter the consequences. She knows she can never replace a mother yet for once she wants to be the number one in a man`s heart even if it means making the man see what is right in front of him is one adventure worth taking.

I just love Sawyer Bennett and her Cold Fury players. Have to say though Zach is my favorite so far. Here is a man so gorgeous, brooding and torn with guilt it almost makes him loose the good thing happening in his life right now. Now Kate was a little hard to get used to for her quirkiness and nerd attitude lol. One minute she seems all mature enough to take this hot hockey player yet shies when he actually does notice her. Loved how these two kept denying the attraction yet one kiss changes everything rapidly. Sawyer Bennett did such an awesome job showing us the toughness in Zach yet also the vulnerability he keeps hidden from people. Like I mentioned this is one hockey team you don`t want to miss. Awesome book.
