A hardworking, competitive, and skilled hockey player, Garrett is the cornerstone of the Burlington Dragons hockey team and one of the league’s most popular playmakers. Blessed with a face that delivers millions in endorsements, he has a legion of fans, and a future so bright that he is the envy of many.
When his internet fame puts him in danger, and a stalker threatens his life, the team hires Jason, a quiet but deadly former marine, to protect him. Danger is always close, but forced proximity means sparks fly, attraction burns, and somehow, resentment turns to love.
When Garrett’s stalker ups their game at a charity bachelor auction, there is a real chance it could mean the end for Garrett, but Jason refuses to leave his side whatever the risk.
These two stubborn men will have to fight to walk away from this alive, but their newfound love is worth every sacrifice.

Hot hockey player + hot bodyguard is always going to be a win for me! (The cover is perfect for the description of Garrett). This is a quick sweet-ish read. I wish it had been dual POV because I really wanted to be in Jason’s head. I also would have liked it to be a little longer so we could have had more time with them together – maybe even witnessed their first real date! And with the tease of the family Christmas hockey game, how could we not have seen Jason take Garrett home for Christmas and shock his family with a new teammate??
I do like them together. Garrett’s fun-loving, playful personality is the perfect balance to Jason’s intense, serious one. Their attraction was obvious even without knowing what was going on in Jason’s head. He was overly protective of Garrett and more invested than an unbiased, uncaring bodyguard would have been.
Kyle – Garrett’s best friend – has a book in this series (not really a series) and I’m going to read that one next! I love the concept of this series, especially now that we’re not getting to watch my favorite sport!
