Book reveal trailer:
Lacey Benoit is in need of a fresh start. Her best friend, Dr. Zoe Millis, has been begging her to make the move from Maine to California. Taking a leap of faith, Lacey does just that.
Living in San Diego definitely has its perks, such as, sunshine and beaches. The best part of moving to the west coast, however, is that Steven is still on the east coast. Catching your almost husband having sex with one of your bridesmaids on your wedding day would make even the strongest woman jaded. Therefore, Lacey has sworn off men for a while, especially men who travel a lot that have easy access to loose women.
When Lacey meets the new enforcer for the San Diego Scorpions, she thinks she might be in trouble. But she is determined to fight her attraction to the sexy NHL hunk. And she is successful...for about a day.
Review by Alexis:
I never thought in a million years that I would find the game of hockey not only interesting but also a bit (ok maybe a lot) sexy. I think the last part may have something to do with an Enforcer by the name of Jody LaGrange. The Enforcer was a funny and passionate read that I could not put down. The author, Nikki Worrell did a fantastic job on her debut novel and I cannot wait to read more, especially the second book in this series. I usually don’t like to read books written in the third person, but this book was written so well.
You are everything I could ever hope to find in a man. You’re the best of the best and I’m so lucky to have you. ~Lacey
Lacey Benoit has hit a rough patch in her life. She lost her brother in an unfortunate accident and she walked in on her ex-fiancée having sex with her friend on their wedding day. When her best friend Zoe (who I also want as my best friend) tells her that there is a job opening in the HR Department for The San Diego Scorpions she decides to leave Maine and move to sunny San Diego. I absolutely loved Lacey; she was such a fresh breath of air. Lacey is able to overcome losses in her life which shows the reader her strength as a female character and she is absolutely hysterical; I was laughing out loud!
You take my breath away, Angel. ~Jody
Jody LaGrange has just been hired as the new Enforcer for the San Diego Scorpions. The Enforcer in hockey has one purpose and that is to protect their teammates on the ice. Jody also has that approach off the ice. His father left when Jody was young, so he grew up protecting his mom and younger sister. When he meets Lacey, he wants nothing more than to protect and care for her. Jody is one hot, alpha-male. Their first date was as Jody would say, “spec-fucking-tacular.” I would love to have my own Jody, not sure my husband would approve though.
For you. For you and your family. For opening your home to my family. For not taking no for an answer when I didn’t want a relationship. For so many things. Thank you. ~Lacey
The chemistry between Lacey and Jody was off the charts! I enjoyed their flirty texts and long-standing joke. If you are looking for a great, steamy, thrilling read then you definitely need to give this book a try.
I don’t know how to describe what I feel. It’s like wherever we are, when I’m with you, I feel like I’m home. ~Jody
I give this book 4 stars.
I am a country girl at heart who tends to like the simple things ... and hockey. Give me a hockey game and I'm set! During intermissions, I read. Reading has always been a love of mine since I was a little girl. The books have gotten a bit spicier through the years of course! I also like moonlit walks on the beach, strawberries and champagne (ok, dirty martinis actually), and a strong man to hold me...etc., etc., etc. ;)
I live in Hammonton, NJ with my husband of over 18 years. It's not always easy but it's always worth it.
I have a B.S.B.A. in Human Resources and work for a law firm in Philadelphia. The only thing left to say is....GO FLYERS!
