NHL coach Mark Diego’s plan to spend his off-season volunteering in his hometown goes awry when he learns that not only is he coaching teenage girls, but that the program is coordinated by energetic (and five feet two inches of trouble) coordinator Rainey Saunders, his childhood friend—and the woman he could never stand to see dating any other guy….

When their tempers flare, Mark and Rainey discover their fireworks don’t just burn angry—they burn very, very hot! But that’ll just sweeten the victory. Because Mark always plays to win. And with Rainey, he’s planning on playing very dirty, too.

My Thoughts

This book brought a theme that always made me fall in love. These two were friends as teenagers and grew up together and afraid of their feelings and how the other would react, the whole relationship was doomed.


Mark had the chance of a life time and took it by going to another city and working as a couch for the NHL, but after his players made some screw up, the only way was put them to work and the best place to do this is in his brother school.


Rainey went to college and after the fiasco her relationships went, let’s just say no man is good enough and usually is harder to even try to understand why they cant’ be Mark, not that his perfect, but she has her feelings for him since high school and after some truths one night, she regrets not having him in her life anymore.


I loved this author writing stile and I’m sure not alone but I do appreciate when a author can make us feel the romance in a book and even better can make us understand the mistakes and cheers for the couple to be together. Rainey and Mark together was kinda cute and I liked how possessive he was and that she put him to work hard on the field and to get her.



“All you have to do is take a man at face value. Don’t go into it thinking you can change them. Men aren’t fixer-uppers, not like a house or a car. You buy them as is.”
