If you want to score, you have to get in the game…

The last thing Jenna Riley needs is more sports in her life. While her brothers are off being athletic superstars, she’s stuck running the family’s sports bar, whether she likes it or not. Then in walks pro hockey stud Tyler Anderson. As much as Jenna would like to go to the boards with him, she’s vowed to never fall for a jock—even one as hot as Ty.

Ty, intrigued by the beautiful bar owner, becomes a regular. He senses that Jenna wants to do something more with her life. And as he gains her trust, the passion between them grows, as does Ty’s insistence that Jenna should start living for herself. With his encouragement, Jenna starts to believe it, too…

But first, Jenna has to figure out what she wants, what she needs, who she loves, and if she has the passion and pride to take a shot at having it all—including Ty…



This is my favourite book of the series so far, it was so good I managed to finish it in one sitting!

On the exterior Jenna is a bad-ass, covered in tattoo’s with multiple piercings and an attitude to match so it came as a shock how insecure she was about her fears. Finding Ty was one of the best things to happen to her as he challenged her, pushed her and ultimately enabled her to finally have the courage to face her fears and follow her dream!

The sex scenes weren’t overwhelming as I felt in ‘Changing the Game’ which was a plus. I enjoyed Jenna and Tyler’s journey; to the point where I got all teary-eyed at the end. A great way to finish.

Ty you rock! I hope there’s more of him in the books to come; it’s a shame it ended so soon as I was so captivated!!
