I’m the coach’s daughter.
He’s my dad’s favorite player
And completely off-limits
The first time I met Preston Parker, I slammed face first into his wet, chiseled abs. In the men’s locker room, of all places. I did the world’s longest walk of shame in front of dozens of hockey players. As if that wasn’t embarrassing enough, Mr. MVP gave me one of his killer smirks, right before dropping his towel in front of me. Just to prove a point. That no woman can resist him. Not even me.
Now, I can’t stop thinking about Parker naked. He keeps finding ways to see me, touch me. And I find myself wanting to break my dad’s rules about his players. Rules I never break for a reason. Because falling for a player like Parker… That was never part of the plan.
Jillian Quinn is an international bestselling romance author who likes her females just as alpha as their swoon-worthy male counterparts. As a lover of all things bookish, Jillian has a serious book-hoarding problem and runs a blog in her free time. When she’s not reading, writing, or blogging, she’s obsessively fangirling over hockey players and can be found wherever she can catch the next hockey game.
We met Preston’s parents in the Face-Off series and now we get to meet their son. Preston plays hockey for Strickland University and is a player on and off the ice. He is destined for the NHL and is focused on his career and all he has to do is follow the coach’s golden rule, do not get involved with his daughter.
Bex is a basketball player at Strickland and she was raised by her father. He is very protective due to an incident in her past and has put rules into place that include no fraternization with the players.
Preston and Bex’s first meeting involved them getting up close and personal. Although they know they should stay away from each other they can’t resist the temptation, so they decide to be friends. The only problem is neither can forget their first meeting or the heat that erupts between them when they are in the same room. Let the games begin!
The new series for this author starts with a winner. The humorous banter, hot chemistry but most importantly the heart that she manages to convey between the characters will have you personally invested in their happy ever after. We were introduced to the other children in this book and I look forward to their stories.
