When I applied for a job with the Philadelphia Bulldogs, I never thought they would offer it to me on the spot. Luckily for me, my twin was letting me stay at his place while he played hockey overseas.
Then he dropped the bomb that Benny was his new roommate. You know, the only guy on the team I can’t stand. I don’t know how we’re gonna survive being roommates. Because honestly? Some days I wasn’t sure if I wanted to kiss him or punch him.
When TJ told me his sister was moving to Philly and needed a place to stay, I knew I should have high-tailed it out of town for the offseason.
But I didn’t. Because I’m all sorts of foolish when it comes to that feisty woman. Every time our paths cross, I open my mouth and make her mad. Usually with good reason, too.
The two of us being roommates was bad news. We’re either going to kill each other or I’m gonna give her the best kiss of her life. I’m not sure which is worse.
This story is an enemy to lovers, sports romance with forced proximity, and a feisty main character. The author incorporates hockey, bisexuality, and female professionals in this book. The romance itself was a whirlwind, and it definitely didn’t lack in steamy scenes. All the characters will capture your heart on this team and have you begging for more. I love reading about the tough alpha males turning into protective teddy bears with their women. I enjoyed this read and can’t wait to read more in this series.
Roxanne is looking for a job, a new life, and a new place. She gets hired for a manager position with her twin brother’s hockey team. Her brother has a roommate, one she isn’t too fond of. She doesn’t have the best relationship with her parents after coming about her preference for both sexes. But she is desperate, and he offers her to stay at his place for a while.
Benny is on the team but seems to be arch enemies with Roxy and, of course, is her temporary apartment mate. They have some animosity toward each other, but damn, it is funny. Oh, this book gets steamy as he figures out how to turn off an argument. He’s even running out for his family, which definitely doesn’t get him points. However, as this story progresses, we see a different side of this alpha male, and he becomes a sweet teddy bear.
Roxanne is still a spitfire, but I love how feisty and confident she is in this story. The author absolutely includes sports in this romance, mainly hockey. I do like that against the odds, this couple works out. This is a whirlwind, but it ends happily. I’m totally intrigued with all the characters on this team and can’t wait to read more.
