Five hockey players, a cabin in the woods . . . and little old me, Winnie Berlin.
Sounds like the start of a fantasy, right? But it’s not. It’s my reality.
It all started when I got lost in the middle of the Canadian Rockies. A wicked thunderstorm sent my car mud sliding into a ditch and for a girl whose survival skills involve finding the nearest Starbucks, I was in deep trouble.
Forced to abandon my car in search of help, I stumbled upon a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Soaking wet, irritated, and in desperate need of a hot shower, I knocked on the door for help only to be greeted by five boisterous, burly, and insanely attractive men.
Not just men.
Professional hockey players.
I hit the motherload of fantasies, right? Wrong.
Because as it turns out, one of them is my ex-boyfriend’s half-brother. And when I end up crashing in their spare bedroom for the night, things take a very unexpected turn.
I’m not sure any amount of survival skills can protect my heart from Vancouver Agitators star goalie, Pacey Lawes. But as long as we kiss and don’t tell, maybe everything will be okay . . .
This book starts off a bit slow and I was losing interest at first, but I’m glad I stuck with it because I loved it. Pacey is high on the list of book boyfriends for being so sweet and attentive. Yes, he did something stupid but he was scared and I understand where he was coming from. Winnie seemed a little flighty at first but I love her. She’s quirky without trying and just a total badass, I really warmed up to her quick and liked her even more as the story continued. And I don’t want to give anything away, but can we all agree Fucking Josh, as per usual. I wanted to reach into the book and punch him.
This is a steamy slow burn with a lot of emotion and would love more Winnie and Pacey. Their story is sweet and funny and I highly recommend it.
