Review Submitted By: Korena for Alpha Book Review
Not only is Jared Rupp one of the stars of the NHL’s Chicago Aces, he’s also the owner of the Sin Bin, the after-hours hot spot where the whole team hangs out. Lately, Jared can’t take his eyes off the woman he’s hired to give the Bin a more modern feel: a sexy, sophisticated consultant who has carved out a niche updating drink menus. She’s as passionate about her career as Jared is about hockey—and yet he can’t help wondering what kind of cocktail she really wants.
In her line of work, Sidney Frayne is used to guys hitting on her in bars, but Jared gets her hot enough to burst into flames. When he’s wining and dining her, he’s sophisticated as hell; on the rink, he’s a testosterone-fueled powerhouse. Still, Sidney’s bitter divorce taught her to keep her emotions on ice. With her busy schedule—and Jared’s playboy reputation—she’s not sure she’s ready for a fling. Because if she lets Jared into her bed, she just may have to let him into her heart.
(Received ARC from NetGalley in exchange for our honest review.)
Sidney Frayne been down a rocky road. With a bitter divorce and jobs she didn’t like, Sidney started a career where she helps revamp bar/restaurant. She helps Jared Rupp, owner of Sin Bin and player on the NHL’s Chicago Aces, with his bar/restaurant. The first look of Sidney in his bar he wanted to know her. Jared didn’t know what Sidney was about until he came and talked with her. Jared and Sidney had chemistry from the get go! Jared had to learn to give control to Sidney where Sin Bin was concerned. Sidney came through for Jared and Sin Bin. From this point the story gets REALLY INTERESTING!! See how far Jared gets with Sidney. Will Sidney open her heart to Jared?
Kelly Jamieson had me glued to the story. I loved the fast pace of the book.
