Enter Sutton Price, a substance abuse counselor who specializes in working with at-risk youth with addicted parents. Naturally, at first sight they discover a mutual attraction though she refuses to engage with him when he propositions her. Instead, they began to banter back and forth until she touches on a touchy subject: his utter hatred for hockey.
That's right, Alex Crossman, professional hockey bad ass hates hockey even though he's amazing on the ice. This in and of itself intrigued me. Like Alex mentions, it's pretty rare.
I won't spoil this great read but suffice to say I loved everything about it! Not only did Alex & Sutton have great chemistry, their overall relationship was something that helped Alex as a character grow and deal with his demons. Not to mention, they both had slightly similar childhoods though their outcomes were very different that had an effect on shaping who they.
The other thing I liked? That it touched on serious issues without being too heavy or depressing about it. I really enjoyed that though they both have issues with their fathers, this book was about Alex and Sutton, their relationship as friends and lovers and how together they were able to handle everything life threw at them.
Though this is a sports romance, it's one with depth and heart and one I can not help but wholeheartedly recommend!
