Publisher's Summary

He's known as Father Anton to his teammates - the brooding, sexy captain of the NHL's Chicago Blaze has a reputation for...not having a reputation. Just like his diet and sleep routines, celibacy is part of Anton Petrov's on-ice mojo. Or so they say. Anton stays mum on the subject. If the world thinks he chooses to abstain from sex, so be it. Better that than the truth getting out: There is a woman he burns for, but he can never have her. She's his teammate's wife, after all.  

Mia Marceau is finally on her own. Now that she and her husband are living apart, she's finding the peace she was desperate for. She spends her days in classes and late nights bartending, making her own way in the world at last. After what she's been through, as long as her husband leaves her alone, she doesn't plan to rock the boat. He still has the power to hurt those dearest to her, and she can't demand a divorce with such a high cost.  

A chance encounter with Mia has Anton hoping for a shot he never thought he'd get. And while she's drawn to the intense, serious hockey center, Mia's leery about playing with fire. That's all Anton has ever known for Mia, though - a living, burning desire that won't be denied - no matter the cost.  

Contains mature themes.

gay best friend

good book but the male charrector sounds more like the gay bestfriend than the sexy hot main charector. he has a nice voice and is an amazing charector but i had to fight to stay into it.

great story

I like so many others pick up the story because it was an interracial romance which I really liked I would have liked it a little better if she wasn't mixed and she was just black. however is a really great story the only thing I didn't like was the author didn't handle the backstory really well like he's just in what he saw re fell in love love at first sight with his teammates wife it would have been better had she kind of shown us how he fell in love isn't just telling us but other than that it's a great story!!!!

loved this book

omg this book was good. who could have ever thought that a professional athlete could have that much restraint and self control. that just makes Anton that much sexier. this book was well worth the price and hopefully you will love it as much as I did

Mia and Anton

Relating to Mia’s situation with her husband was real personal for me. It’s wonderful that she was able to get away and even better that she had a strong beautiful man that was willing to keep her strong. I enjoyed this book, it was heart felt and enjoyable.
