Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he's playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who's exactly his type: confident, sexy, and smart. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don't normally get to see.
Olivia has been keeping a secret. She's undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn't have time for a relationship with no guarantees - especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won't take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can't help falling for him...hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything - but you can't score without taking the tough shots.

"Garrett is sexy, emotional, and real." (Violet Duke)
This is a great love story. The narrator was very good. I think the topic of standing by someone who is fighting a serious illness is awesome.
Wouldn't life be great if everyone had a Garrett to love them through the rough stuff? Although the story has a more serious undertone, it's a sweet love story, with humor and leaves you feeling hopeful. The series has been good so far. I recommend it for hopeless romantics for sure.
When I first started listening, I stopped at the 2nd chapter. Garrett was such a jerk and CANCER!! No, I read and/or listen to books to get a BREAK from those kind of things!! Today I started from the first again. I should have kept listening the first time. I know it was about where I was at the time. I delayed hearing a really...well sweet story. It is. This story about a jerk and cancer ends up being a sweet, feel good story. It ended and I smiled. Listen to it. That's what I recommend. :) Great voices to listen to by the performers, BTW.
I'm loving this series. And this installment was utterly delightful. Garrett couldn't have been more thoughtful and charming.
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
I wanted to like this book. It begins with the playboy who will sleep with anything in a skirt who finds himself ago attracted to the cousin of one of his team mates wives. She also happens to be ill and decides to live life to the fullest. Of course Garrett does not know she is ill .... the predictable he falls in love with her and is going to stand by her blah blah blah. I did not finish this book! This book just was not for me.
