NHL coach Mark Diego's plan to spend his off-season volunteering in his hometown goes awry when he learns that not only is he coaching teenage girls, but that the program is coordinated by energetic (and five feet two inches of trouble) coordinator Rainey Saunders, his childhood friend—and the woman he could never stand to see dating any other guy….

When their tempers flare, Mark and Rainey discover their fireworks don't just burn angry—they burn very, very hot! But that'll just sweeten the victory. Because Mark always plays to win. And with Rainey, he's planning on playing very dirty, too…

My Take:

I don't know a single person who doesn't have that embarrassing moment from their long ago past (or maybe more recent) when a bad case of crush/lust caused them to do something they will forever regret and never forget.  Poor Rainey Saunders replays her embarrassing moment every time she lays eyes on Mark Diego... and thanks to his screen time as an NHL coach it happens more than Rainey would like; not that she's giving up her secret glimpses of Mark.  

Another fun, sizzling read from Jill Shalvis; with strong characters, a fun story line, and an ending that leaves you smiling I can't imagine why you're still here reading this review when you should be reading the book!

I received this book electronically from Harlequin for reading and reviewing
