An unexpected kiss under the fireworks with the wrong person. A looming trade deadline. Aurora is pulled into two different directions with no clear path to take.
As personal assistant to Michael Tucker, professional hockey player, Aurora knows not to mix business with pleasure. Especially with her boss's cocky younger brother and exceptional pain in the ass, center Tom Tucker. But after an unexpected kiss under the fireworks, Aurora is left contemplating not just her feelings, but what she wants out of her life. With the trade deadline approaching, Aurora knows she must choose to travel with her boss to his next possible home in Arizona or stay in Newport Beach, quitting her job and giving up everything.
Bickering between a cocky hockey player and a stubborn heroine who likes all things Disney features heavily throughout the book. Sass, sex, and skating abound with Book 9 of the Slapshot Series
Ah, Tom Tucker. Sarcastic and arrogant on the outside, all self-doubt on the inside, Tom Tucker. He's also absolutely lovable. I can't say the same for his brother, Michael, but even though the relationship between the brothers is important to the story, Michael isn't really the story here. Tom and Aurora butt heads as only two people attracted to each other and refusing to admit it can. And once they cross that line into something more, they are so good together, doubts and all. Like the rest of the series, this one can be read as a standalone, but past favorites are always around somewhere in the periphery, and once you get to know any of them, you'll want to know them all. This 9th Slapshot romance is a pretty quick read, but it certainly doesn't lack in wonderful characters, witty dialogue, and feel, lots of feels. Another great addition to the series.
