Drafted first round pick when I was seventeen, playing first line at eighteen, branded NHL’s bad boy at nineteen. At twenty-three I was cut from the team and living back home with my parents. A knock on the door brought an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. All I had to do was prove I learned from my mistakes, so no way would I fall for a chick with a pouty mouth even if I wanted to spend all day devouring it.
When my father gave me a job, I had no idea it would be to babysit some washed up NHL player. He wanted me to be his chaperone, his overpaid babysitter. I thought it was a joke. Then I met him, Matthew Grant. I wasn’t prepared for this particular bad boy. He’s not only hot but he’s arrogant and kinda sweet in a ‘you make me crazy’ kind of way.
Basically now that he’s finished screwing up his life, he’s decided to turn mine upside down.
She’s the first thing I’ve ever wanted more than hockey.
He’s the guy I know I should stay away from.
But what if this thing that started out so wrong turns into something so perfect?
This is the second book in the Something So series, but can be read as a standalone, which is good as this is the first book I’ve read by Natasha, and OMG did I love it!!
I’m getting to be quite a fan of the sports romances, ice hockey especially so, these men are just so Alpha!! Wickedly naughty on and off the ice, they really are very bad boys as a rule. Matthew Grant is no exception – branded the bad boy of ice hockey at nineteen, he had everything going for him, but ended up throwing it all away. Now he’s been given a second chance to prove himself, but has to agree to have a chaperone lol!!
Karrie’s dad owns the team that’s giving him the second chance, and she’s drafted in to be his chaperone, much to her horror!! She was not expecting the hot, Alpha, cocky, domineering won’t-take-no-for-an-answer man that was Matthew. But Karrie is not one to be pushed around, and stands up to Matthew and his Alpha ways!!
Their attraction for each other is electric, and I just love their relationship!! He is just so domineering with her, his possessiveness and protectiveness is very overpowering, but she is full of fiery sass back at him. They had me laughing so much! I love their dynamics in the relationship, it just works so well together. Talk about emotional also – this reduced me to tears several times!
A brilliant read!! I totally loved it, flying through the pages. A great storyline, emotional, funny, sexy – I can’t wait to read more. I highly recommend this if you like your hot domineering Alphas, and will definitely read more from Natasha.
