Miller “Buck” Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed up front teeth. After five years in the NHL, deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies, Miller has decided he’s ready for a girlfriend. A real, non-bunny girlfriend to take on dates, and not jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation.
Miller thinks he’s found that woman in his teammate’s sister. Except, unlike team captain and all-around nice guy Alex Waters—who happens to date his stepsister, Miller’s media reputation as a manwhore is well earned. Beyond that minor detail, Miller doesn’t know the first thing about relationships or the time and effort they require.
Miller learns—eventually—that if he wants to make Sunshine “Sunny” Waters fall for him, he’s going to have to do a whole lot more than show her his stick skills in the bedroom.
I'll be the first to admit I was a little apprehensive about this book. I loved Pucked and I was fairly sure there was no way this book would be as good as that. I am happy to report that I was completely wrong.
Miller and Sunny make a wonderful couple and their interactions while not as wild and sexy as the previous book still had a good amount of sizzle. But what I truly loved was the more gentle side of Miller and seeing him as more than the player that we got to see in the first book. And I completely loved that this book was from his pov.
There are a few things I adored towards the end of the book but I can't share them with you without ruining the reading experience.
I highly recommend this book and give it 5 out of 5
