From the author of the Hometown Players series comes a”sexy, sassy” (Library Journal) second chance romance between a playboy hockey star and the one woman who got away.

Jude Braddock. Hockey god. That’s how everyone sees him now. But when they were teenagers, Zoey knew him as the kid who didn’t have enough nerve to make a move on their one and only disastrous date. Seems he doesn’t have that problem anymore, though. According to the rumors, he’s with a different woman every night. After a rough divorce, the last thing Zoey needs is more heartbreak. But Jude’s cocky, playful attitude is mighty hard to resist.

Jude knows he isn’t built for long-term relationships. But he’s getting sick of women pounding on his door in the middle of the night looking for a rematch. When Zoey comes back into his life, it’s like fate has given him a second chance. He’ll do anything to make her happy again. Is this what love looks like? He has no idea. All he knows for sure is that this time, he’s playing for keeps.


  • "Denault launches a new series, featuring the bad boys of the San Francisco Thunder, with gusto, passion and heaps of tension and sensual detail. Several genre-defying complications makes the story feel unexpectedly fresh. Moreover, the consistent reinforcement of the female characters' strength and individuality turns this book into something unique, and provides plenty of incentive for fans of sport romances to seek out this new series without delay."

  • "Sexy, sassy, and a perfect new adult read for fans who love hockey and romance, not necessarily in that order. An excellent new sports series launch."
    Library Journal
  • "This bad boy hockey player is the best. His love of his family and the way he treats Zoey make him a perfect book boyfriend. This book moves along very quickly, so be warned you will have that feeling of the end of book sadness when you reach the final page."

  • "The right mix of swoon, sex, humor and heartache-never too light, never too angsty. Ahh, those feel good moments had my face and my heart smiling, while those rocky moments had my brow furrowing and my blood pumping. Which made this book so very easy to get lost in. And get lost, I did. In Zoey, whose sometimes wavering strength felt very human. In Jude-to quote Zoey, Oh, Mylanta-who is reformed playboy perfection; a good guy underneath a messy outer shell. ...I loved this book...Book 2 can't come soon enough."

  • "I blew through this book in just over a day. Not because the story was an easy read, though it was. I could not put this book down! The story and characters were so engaging that I kept wanting to see what happened next."
