I wish I had read the reviews prior to purchasing this book. As has been stated before the male narrator was overdramatic , choppy , sounded like he was from the J Peterman School of narration. I kept listening to the book hoping the story would get better because I have enjoyed this author's stories in the past. But the story was underwhelming as well.

The first thing that was off, was the narration. He sounded like a robot, but sounded better when he did an accent. The 2nd thing is way the story was written, most of it occured in each main character's minds. There were multiple times when things were mentioned that didn't need to be mentioned and even in the story, the character said "I should not have thought/said that". It really did not sound like a book written by Lynsay Sands. Finally the overall story was predictable, yet at the same time did not make sense. How many people who are "not in shape" can swim 4 hours and then be up to running around...Why did it take them so long to just go to the front desk to see if she could get a room key? Then it didn't make sense how easily Vasko gave Jess Up...really?

There was way too much description and it was done over and over. I really got tired of hearing "You stupid woman". The story was corney. I listened to the first one and liked the story but had the same issues with descriptions. This author not for me.

With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn't interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet's misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.
