Only in my family could a professional hockey player earning seven million dollars a year be considered a slacker.
I’m at the height of my athletic career. Yet my arrogant brother is always trying to recruit me into the family business: a global security company so secretive that I don’t even know its name.
Pass, thanks. I don’t need a summer job.
But the jerk ambushes me with a damsel in distress. That damsel is Alex, the competitive, sassy girl I knew when we were kids. Now she’s a drop-dead gorgeous woman in deep trouble.
So guess who’s on a flight to Hawaii?
It’s going to be a long week in paradise. My job is keeping Alex safe, while her job is torturing me with her tiny bikinis. Or maybe we’re torturing each other. It’s all snark and flirting until the threat against Alex gets serious. And this jock must become her major league protector.
✨ I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ✨
I really enjoyed this story, I think its probably the first one I’ve read where one of the main characters is a Hockey player but the story is focused on hockey.. well not too much anyway.
Eric is tasked with the job of being Alex’s bodyguard/boyfriend on her business trip to Hawaii that her dickwad ex is also attending, you know just as friendly favor to an old friend, but he’s about to get more than he bargained for.
I liked both Eric and Alex. there is a part of the story that I wouldn’t usually go for but it worked surprisingly well for this book. This story has lots of ups and downs, it kept me on the edge of my seat trying to figure out what was going on.
And the ending was just perfect!
My Rating 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
