Publisher's Summary

Revised and Edited Third Edition 

He trusts his gut, she trusts her numbers, and neither trusts the other, as a billionaire's mission to bring hockey to Seattle clashes with his passion for the woman who holds his heart. 

Ethan Parker, a billionaire determined to bring professional hockey to Seattle, will stop at nothing to realize his dream. After putting down a hefty deposit on another city's team, the sale is stalled as the parties involved evaluate their options. In the meantime, Ethan’s investors insist he go undercover during the playoffs to get the inside scoop. 

Lauren Schneider, assistant director of player personnel, gets no respect from the team's testosterone-loaded staff. When Ethan bursts onto the scene, full of charm and genuinely interested in her opinions, she shares the team's weaknesses and discovers a weakness of her own - for Ethan. But when his true identity is revealed, and he starts cleaning house based on her input, his betrayal cuts deeply on both a professional and personal level. Bound by an employment contract, Lauren reluctantly moves to Seattle to work for the newly christened Seattle Sockeyes and her sexy, infuriating boss. 

Lauren and Ethan must come to terms with their passions - for the team, for hockey, and for each other. Will their situation build a frozen wall between them, or will their love burn hot enough to melt the ice shielding their hearts?

on thin ice

Everybody had their secrets, but they all acted like Ethan was the only one and the bad guy???
I can't! ! Lauren acted like she was the only one that had been hurt in the past! All emotion and mo brain function. I was disappointed in Lauren!
She was too hardheaded fir her own good. Lots of cheesy hockey puns/slang. The narrator was good. I voluntarily listened to this and am giving an honest review.

Love, Lies, & Hockey

Promising start to this series in a story that is Undercover Boss meets hockey plus a slow burn romance. Ethan is a Seattle based billionaire determined to bring hockey to his city. When he finally gets the chance to purchase a team, he must secretly go undercover to ensure everything with the deal goes smoothly. Lauren was raised in a hockey family and is trying to be taken seriously as a woman in a man's world. Ethan recognizes her talent but worries what will happen when she finds out the truth about who he really is and what his plans are for the team. Sparks fly as these two reluctantly become friends and allies but will their trust issues threaten their fledgling romance before it ever has a real chance?
While the narrator is great at telling the story and the female voices, she falls short on the male voices. The voice for Ethan was grating on my ears and difficult to listen to and the other guys weren't much better being stiff and disjointed.

Good start to a series.

I had already read the book but when I saw there was an audio I had to listen. As before I liked the story although the book heroine bugs me a little bit during the story. Draws conclusions without listening. Keeps talking about trust, when she doesn’t show any herself. But I still liked the story.
Narration.... Shaina Summerville is excellent at the female and general storytelling narrating BUT NOT the male characters. She makes them sound stiff and constipated. I wanted a sexy alfamale smooth voice of Ethan, but that was not what I got.

Good hockey romance; too much forced angst

Ethan goes undercover to assess a hockey team that he wants to buy. Lauren works for the team and there’s instant attraction. But as he’s undercover, he’s not allowed to let her in on his secret. How do they overcome starting their relationship on a bed of lies?

I enjoyed most of the story until towards the end. I thought that there was too much forced angst and the way that Lauren reacted to the reveal was unbelievable, given how the whole book she was exalted for her professionalism. However, I really liked the characters for most of the book so I give the book a 3.5.

In terms of the narration, Shaina was ok, when she played the female characters. However, I admit that I didn’t like her male voices- those voices sounded too forced and in such an unnatural way, sharp way. However, her narration otherwise was pretty good in terms of pacing and admittedly, it was easy to differentiate between the voices.

Perfect pair 💜

I enjoyed this book. I feel like things were kind of predictable but I enjoyed it all the same. I liked the characters and feel like they made the perfect pair. Narration was great and I recommend this book.
