He’s Fire on Ice and she’s afraid to get burned again…
“You always think a guy is going to be different until he’s not.”
Firestorm Center Kian Kavanagh dominates the ice like a rock star dominates the stage. He’s the hottest new player to be recruited for the Firestorm, a newly established professional hockey team in Northern Arizona.
After Taylor Thompson’s heart was completely shattered by her high school’s most popular jock, she vowed never to date another athlete. And she keeps that promise through her first three years of college by putting up impenetrable walls to protect her from heartbreak.
But after a chance meeting with the charming and irresistible Kian Kavanagh, Taylor’s carefully constructed walls are in serious danger of being burned down by Mr. Fire on Ice.
Taylor Thompson has seen her fair share of cocky hockey players in her life – and has been hurt by them. So when Kian Kavanagh approaches her while she is reading a book in the back booth of a bar, she seems to be totally immune to his both his good looks and his charm. But in reality, she can’t keep her mind of the confident lothario who programmed his number into her phone. After all, he would much rather have one of the many “puck bunnies” that seem to swarm around him rather than a bookish college student – right?
“I was just about ready to delete Kian’s contact information from my phone when an image of him popped into my mind. The harder I tried to fight the feelings the memory of him evoked, the stronger the images of him played in my brain: his crooked little half smile, his blazing blue eyes, the overwhelming energy of his presence and his uber-masculinity. He completely took my breath away.”
“It’s the truth. You and I both know it. But I promise you I will work harder than any other person on the Earth to make you happy and to try to be even half of the person you deserve. Even if you decide you don’t want me, which I totally get and I wouldn’t blame you, I want you to know that you make me want to be a better person— you make me want to be a better man.”
