Series: Sin City Saints #1
Author: Brenda Rothert
Genre: Hockey Romance
Release Date: September 21, 2021
The Vegas heat just kicked up a notch with the arrival of ice hockey’s newest expansion team – the Sin City Saints.
Maverick Hagen’s fall from grace was more like a crash landing. His record-breaking career ended after a fight with an opponent over a woman left him with a broken leg, or so the pundits thought. Returning to the sport he loves as the captain of the league’s new expansion team, the Sin City Saints, his lucrative contract comes with just one rule—no romantic distractions.
Gia Ford also makes her living playing a game—poker. The rounder has hit her stride in Vegas, quietly building her bank account one casino at a time. She’s got a score to settle, and nothing will get in her way—not even the sexy hockey player who’s willing to lose money just to see her in action. Maverick attracts attention, upsetting Gia’s under-the-radar game. Maverick and Gia can’t afford to give in to their magnetic attraction, with his career rebounding and her winnings growing. But the hotter their chemistry burns, the harder it is to deny. So will they or won’t they? In Vegas, there’s only one way to settle it—a bet, of course.
Maverick is a hockey player who allowed the lines between personal and professional to blur and the aftereffects could have destroyed his career. He is looking for a fresh start with the Sin City Saints but he has been warned that he can’t repeat the mistakes of the past but there is something about Gia that won’t let him walk away.
Gia has her reasons for playing the tables in Vegas and it is for more than the money. She may be attracted to Maverick, but she isn’t about to let him or anyone else divert her from her plan.
I enjoyed seeing the relationship between Gia and Maverick unfold as they realized what truly mattered in life and love and I am looking to more stories centered around the Saints.
