Hockey player Brice Douglas has never gotten over the Christmas he spent with Ava Johnson back in college. Now, years later, he’s in trouble with his team, the Witch Fields Prowlers. Desperate to keep their rabble-rousing player’s head in the game, they hire a babysitter to keep his ass out of a sling and home in his bed at night: Ava. He’s determined to make up for lost time, while convincing her he’s not the man the team made him out to be, using every dirty, sexy trick he can.

Ava just got out a relationship with a cheating fiancé. She needs time to rebuild her life and babysitting her old college crush maybe the answer to her prayers–so long as sex isn’t involved. Yet, with his sexy nightly self-pleasuring sessions and dirty talk her resistance quickly starts wearing thin. With every day that passes, she’s growing more comfortable with him and his desire for her.

Will she be putting Brice on ice, or will he end up thawing Ava?

Brice never thought he would get his chance with Ava. That Christmas so long ago was never forgotten and when he gets another chance, he wants to grab the only other thing in his life that he ever loved as much as hockey: Ava. Brice will not back down. Missed chances and misunderstandings have kept these two apart for so many years but now that she is back Ava finds that things may not be what she always thought they were. Does time really heal all wounds or are Ava’s too deep to heal?

I found myself falling into Brice and Ava’s story right from the beginning. I loved Ava, she is a strong woman who does not let anyone bring her down. She will not let what they think or say bother her. The only thing that she truly ever longed for was love and Brice might be the man to give it to her if she can get passed the one painful spot in her life.

Underneath everything Brice is a good man. He has always loved Ava but missed his chance with her as a young man. Brice is all grown up now and is not going to let this chance go by. The two make a wonderful couple. Ava and Brice go through so much and fight hard for their happy ever after. Each one gives the other just what they need. Watching the two fight for their love make for a great read. Ava and Brice go through so much and fight hard for their happy ever after. I loved seeing Ava’s family play such a supportive role for her in this story. It was also nice to see a woman who wasn’t stick thin as the love interest. Ava is proud of herself and not embarrassed about her size or anything else for that matter and Brice loves her all the more for it. It was nice to see these two finally reach for their happy ever after.
