Blurb: A hockey star skating on the edge of a catastrophe.
A PR specialist so adept, he’s called “the Fixer.”
Working together will be the biggest challenge of both their careers.
The LA Vikings hockey team is fed up the violent outbursts of its huge, intimidating enforcer, Viktor Novak. Hounded by a homophobic and domineering father, Viktor takes out his frustrations by spilling blood—on and off the ice. Now he has one last chance to clean up his image, or his career is over.
That’s where Bowen Miller comes in.
Bo has taken on the hardest cases and succeeded—by micromanaging every aspect of a client’s life—at the expense of his own happiness. But in the stubborn, hot mess that is Viktor, Bo might have met his match—both in and out of the bedroom. One man is out of control, and one controls everything. But when sex and attraction come into play, those roles are open to negotiation.
Review: I haven’t really been a fan of romances that uses sport stars, but I will admit that this sounded pretty good. Once I got to reading it, I could understand why the guy had anger issues. It was more than just hockey, but it shows how one is injured just from a parent’s mean words. In this we see the physical wounds as well. Something that our strong man needs to heal from, physical and emotional wounds from someone who should have loved him.
Viktor has been hurt both physically and emotionally from his family. I should say from his father, a man who should have loved him no matter what. He hides a part of himself and denies it. He takes his anger out not only on the ice, but on the ice it gets him suspended. He needs help and it seems they have found the perfect person to do so.
Bo is what one calls the Fixer, a man sent in to help when P.R. needs to be fixed. He goes in to help those who needs it. From the start he knows that Viktor is a power-keg waiting to go off. But he sees something in him, something that pulls at him. Things heat up, but you will need to read the story to find out more.
I saw and felt the pain that both these men have gone through. Different in ways but similar in others. I can see how it effects them and how much they needed each other. They have so much to go through to get to the other side. It is an amazing story that will pull at your heart strings and have you in tears. It is a very emotional story with a fantastic end.
I have not really been a fan of an author’s I have not heard of and stories that don’t call to me. However I think that this story just changed that for me. Maybe with this author and type of story, but still it is a nice change. I enjoyed reading this story and I do look forward to reading the next book. It also makes me want to go back and read the previous books.
I enjoyed reading this and would definitely recommend this book.
