Skyscraper cheekbones, lush lips, and magnetic topaz eyes.
I’m talking about Eric Hansen.
Glorified hockey star.
Thinks he’s amazing.
Yeah. The Golden Boy and I are well acquainted. In prep school he trampled on my heart and kept right on going.
Three years later, he’s living the high life with frat parties and puck bunnies at Hawthorne University. On the other hand, people barely notice me. I’m the nobody, surviving in the seedy part of town as I struggle to keep my head above treacherous waters.
The avoidance game we’ve been playing was working—until he rescues me from a bad guy and claims he wants to help me more. Hello. I don’t need a knight in shining armor. This girl saves herself.
Yet… I’m not sure how long I can ignore the undeniable spark between us.
(It’s not even a spark; it’s a full-fledged, blazing fire.)
Can this hockey player prove he’s boyfriend material, or will this be a game we both lose?
Julia and Eric have a history they don’t acknowledge to their friends but the tension is always between them. They mostly avoid each other but when Eric finds Julia in a bad situation, he jumps right in to save her. She doesn’t want help from him, of all people, but she’s desperate and he’s better than the alternative. He’s driven by a need to take care of her and she loves that she doesn’t have to do it all on her own anymore.
They’re both sympathetic characters that I loved in Sugar and Zack’s book so I’m happy to finally get their story. These two are perfect together and really turn up the heat. I received an ARC from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.
