From the USA Today best-selling author of Rookie Move comes the second novel in the series that's hot enough to melt the ice.
He's a fighter in the rink, but he's about to learn that playing nice can help you score.
As team captain and enforcer, Patrick O'Doul puts the bruise in the Brooklyn Bruisers. But after years of hard hits, O'Doul is feeling the burn, both physically and mentally. He conceals his pain from his coach and trainers, but when his chronic hip injury becomes too obvious to ignore, they send him for sessions with the team's massage therapist.
After breaking up with her long-term boyfriend, Ari Bettini is in need of peace of mind. For now she's decided to focus on her work: rehabilitating the Bruisers' MVP. O'Doul is easy on the eyes, but his reaction to her touch is ice cold. Ari is determined to help O'Doul heal, but as the tension between them turns red hot, they both learn that a little TLC does the body good.

I loved both the performances. I really thought they both brought the story to life. I usually favor listening to male narrators and Rock Engle is now a new favorite! I will be looking for more titles that he's narrated.
A bit too long for that, but I did my best to find excuses to keep listening!!!
Sarina Bowen is one of my newer favorite authors. She has never disappointed me and her hockey stories and characters are among my all-time favorite romances ever. If she writes it, I read it.
I loved this story by Sarina Bowen, she has an amazing way to write incredibly really characters dealing with very serious problems in an endearing and real way. The narration was good - I thought Rock Engle did a great job! Nicol Zanzarella is a wonderful narrator though I didn't really think her voice suited this character as well as other narrators could have, though it did not detract from my enjoyment of the audio version of the book.
Fine Sarina Bowen story, as usual. Particularly liked the reveal on O'Doul's backstory. Unfortunately, I found myself becoming impatient with Ari, partly because of her angsty repetitiveness, but mostly because the narrator used the same Mae-West drawl throughout. I found myself rolling my eyes and cringing by the end. Liked Rick Engle's voicing of O'Doul's tough-guy/sweetie persona, though.
