Auden Berezin is used to losing people: her father, her mother, her first love. Now, just when she believes those childhood wounds are finally healing, she loses something else: the soccer scholarship that was her ticket to college. Scrambling to earn tuition money, she's relieved to find a gig translating for a Russian minor-league hockey player - until she realizes that he's the same dangerously sexy jerk who propositioned her at the bar the night before.
Equal parts muscle and scar tissue, Aleksandr Varenkov knows about trauma. Maybe that's what draws him to Auden. He also lost his family too young, and he channeled the pain into his passions: first hockey, then vodka and women. But all that seems to just melt away the instant he kisses Auden and feels a jolt of desire as sudden and surprising as a hard check on the ice. After everything she's been through, Auden can't bring herself to trust any man, let alone a hotheaded puck jockey with a bad reputation. Aleksandr just hopes that she'll give him a chance - long enough to prove that he's finally met the one who makes him want to change.

Def recommend this for all that love sports, romance, good friends, and sweet stories. The narration was wonderful as she did the accents pretty darn well so we could fully enjoy the story and the characters. The cover is beautiful too. I'm buying all books that McManus narrates as she's believable and always adds to the story. And I'm def downloading the next book by Henry. Excited to see who she focuses on next. Hopefully josh...
