Book Blurb:

The Vegas heat just kicked up a notch with the arrival of ice hockey’s newest expansion team – the Sin City Saints.

Maverick Hagen’s fall from grace was more like a crash landing. His record-breaking career ended after a fight with an opponent over a woman left him with a broken leg, or so the pundits thought. Returning to the sport he loves as the captain of the league’s new expansion team, the Sin City Saints, his lucrative contract comes with just one rule—no romantic distractions.

Gia Ford also makes her living playing a game—poker. The rounder has hit her stride in Vegas, quietly building her bank account one casino at a time. She’s got a score to settle, and nothing will get in her way—not even the sexy hockey player who’s willing to lose money just to see her in action. Maverick attracts attention, upsetting Gia’s under-the-radar game.

Maverick and Gia can’t afford to give in to their magnetic attraction, with his career rebounding and her winnings growing. But the hotter their chemistry burns, the harder it is to deny. So will they or won’t they? In Vegas, there’s only one way to settle it—a bet, of course.

A terrific start to a new hockey series. I love these sports romances from this talented author set in the world of pucks and hot hunks. And what a great backdrop for this new series, Las Vegas. Lots of fabulous stories to come in Sin City with show girls, budding stars, wacky characters, and one cute poker player. Gia is a heroine after my heart. Savvy, smart, a wonderful sister with a sad backstory. She plays poker to settle a score that caused her to lose someone close to her. When she happens to meet the sexy hockey player it’s magic. Maverick is such a hunk with a fabulous personality. Sexy, funny and sweet. I loved him. He’s with a new team after an injury that could be career ending. He has a score to settle too, just not as dangerous as Gia’s. The connection between Gia and Maverick is instant but both are not ready for a relationship. Mav and Gia’s banter is everything! Their chemistry grows the more they connect but can they take that next step? Maverick has something to prove and Gia will have to give up her revenge. One of the best parts of the story is the camaraderie between the hockey players. There are a few old friends that pop up from previous series and lots of new ones for future stories. Loads of laughs, antics, friendship and good times with these guys. The epilogue has the setup for the next story with Pike, the young player who’s having too much fun in Sin City. I can’t wait! Loved it!
