Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type—confident, sexy, smart . . . his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.
Olivia has been keeping a secret. While Garrett lives for the next thrill, Olivia’s not sure she’ll live to see the next day. She’s undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn’t have time for a relationship with no guarantees—especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won’t take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can’t help falling for him . . . hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything—but you can’t score without taking the tough shots.
Garrett is one of the hottest players on the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team. He loves playing hockey more than he loves breathing. Second best? The plethora of ladies he so frequently obliges in. Garrett is the ultimate one-night stand kind of dude. He does not date or bed a girl a second time.
That is…until he meets Olivia at a party. Immediately he goes up to her thinking she would be his next conquest. Unfortunately for him, she lets him down pretty harshly which is something that Garrett is not used to. Immediately right after, he realizes that Olivia is none other than Sutton, his friend Alex’s fiancé’s cousin. Yes, I know that was a lot to take in there.
Olivia has been warned to stay away from Garrett and his womanizing ways. But when faced with the reality that life is not always a guarantee she throws caution to the wind for some of the yumminess that Garrett has to offer.
What both of them were not expecting was to actually fall for each other. So fast. When truths are set free and reality is staring both of them in the face, can they figure a way to be with each other?
I will be the first to admit that I knew exactly where this book was going. I also was a bit nervous with how quickly Garrett, the king of one-night stands could go head-first into such a serious relationship. How could someone do such a 180 in such a short amount of time? Under normal circumstances in most other romance stories, I would’ve totally DNF it. BUT…Sawyer didn’t make their story cheesy or forced. The flow of the story was as natural as it could be in that situation. I really liked both of the characters, they were the perfect match. Who else could’ve brought down Garrett’s reign of rotating ladies? Plus, the chemistry that Olivia and Garrett shared was absolutely intense, and crazy-hot. I ate it up.
Lastly, I cannot wait to see what happens in the next story which is about Zach. Sawyer set up his storyline in this book and to say I’m eagerly waiting is an understatement.
