If you want to score, you have to get in the game…

The last thing Jenna Riley needs is more sports in her life. While her brothers are off being athletic superstars, she’s stuck running the family’s sports bar, whether she likes it or not. Then in walks pro hockey stud Tyler Anderson. As much as Jenna would like to go to the boards with him, she’s vowed to never fall for a jock-even one as hot as Ty.

Ty, intrigued by the beautiful bar owner, becomes a regular. He senses that Jenna wants to do something more with her life. And as he gains her trust, the passion between them grows, as does Ty’s insistence that Jenna should start living for herself. With his encouragement, Jenna starts to believe it, too…

But first, Jenna has to figure out what she wants, what she needs, who she loves, and if she has the passion and pride to take a shot at having it all-including Ty…


Okay this story was a well done romance, but at the end I felt like something was missing and it made me realize that Jenna was running from something but she didn’t had a reason to. Just weird to me, since both her brothers play sports and neither are bad guys.
I love Jenna attitude since the other books in this series and how she managed to work with this guys and still has her freedom. Both her brothers are athletes and she manages her family sports bar, but se also runs from anything related with a relationship and a athlete, which is weird to me, since the only people she knows are the ones on the bar and they all think off sports as a divinity.
But I loved this relation and how Ty managed to overcome her plans and strike at her heart was genius. He’s a very dangerous and smart guy, but still manages to be sweet and family orientated. I loved him and how much his in love with Jenna.
