Genres: Sports Romance
And he's every woman's dirty fantasy in the state of California.., except one... Quinn Ashby.
Recent graduate of Penn and top of her class, Quinn is whip smart, ambitious and interning as the new marketing coordinator for the Bexley Bruisers American Hockey League team. The last thing she needs is to waste her time on guys…especially one as lethal to her focus as Cash Brooks.
But once the bad boy hockey star tempts her into his world, threatening her professional future, she’s forced to decide whether to let him into her heart…or to leave him behind forever.
As much as I love sports romance, I am starting to tire of it. This book illustrates the reason: the man whore athlete. Cash is the prime example. He flaunts his women to everyone (Quinn included), can’t fathom why a woman wouldn’t want to be one of his ‘puck bunnies’, and is totally incapable of understanding how any one would want anything resembling a relationship. This trope is slowly killing my enjoyment of this genre.
So, there isn’t anything bad about this book. The writing is fine, the plot is solid, and, except for my above feelings about Cash, I liked several of the characters. So, I gave the book 3 stars because if you haven’t read a lot of sports romance that is filled with this trope, there is nothing here you won’t enjoy; however, because I felt like I had read this before, I can’t give it more than 3 stars.
