Publisher's Summary

Vaughn Johansson is the Nashville Assassins' star player. He's brash, cocky, and talented. And he isn't afraid to let anyone know it. He lives his life on his own terms, never forming romantic attachments, and only allowing his very closest to see his true, caring self.

Brie Soledad has the weight of the world on her shoulders. As the staff reporter for the Assassins, she balances her high-profile job and its heavy travel schedule with being the sole provider for her adult brother with Down syndrome. Sure, she'd like to find love. But who has time for that when there are bills to pay?

Brie has been the match to Vaughn's gasoline since the day she first held out her microphone to him. They strike sparks off each other, keeping their friends, the team, and the Assassins fans in stitches. Brie's refusal to fawn over Vaughn sets his teeth on edge and his blood boiling. Especially in that body part....

Brie's been let down by love before, but she knows she deserves nothing less than real, forever love. Vaughn's past has left deep, hidden scars, and there are some secrets he cannot bear to reveal. As much as Brie wants him, Vaughn may be too big a risk for her wary heart to take.

Enjoyable listen

I have listened to most of the books in this series and find them enjoyable when I need a mindless listen. These stories are easy going love stories that don't wear your brain out, but help you relax and listen. Despite this being the 10th book in the series, Also always manages to put some kind of new spin on her stories. I knocked the story down a star just because of the length of the book. I don't think it needed to be so long to get the story told. Overall I recommend listening if you want a fun, mindless listen.

Opposites attract!

The stories from the Nashville Assassins hockey team have always been some of my favorites, and this audiobook was great listening. The hero is Vaughn, one of the rough defensemen, a lady’s man with a fear of commitment. The heroine is a spunky woman who is the teams newswoman on-air, interviewing team members after the games. She has a grown brother with Downs Syndrome and the author handled the whole disability issue with great grace and understanding. Usually, Vaughn and she bump heads and insult each other, but as we later see, it was just a mask for mutual attraction. When Vaughn has a secret come out because of her brother things start to change for the two for the better. Can Vaughn get over his issues with commitment? Narration was excellent.
