On the Line by Victoria Denault Publication Date: December 6th, 2016
Publisher: Forever Yours
Genre: Contemporary Romance
He had total control of his game--until she changed all the rules . . . As one of the best players in the NHL and the "golden boy" of the league, Avery Westwood knows he has to keep his cool--on and off the ice. His whole life is a carefully constructed image of perfection for the media and his brand sponsors. Of course, that means he can never let his true feelings show. But when it comes to the sexy sister of his former teammate, Avery might be willing to make an exception . . . even if it means breaking all his own rules. As far as Stephanie Deveau is concerned, having a thing for Avery is the equivalent of psychological napalm. Très bad idea. Then he moves in next door, all sexy smiles and a deliciously hot body that she can't resist. Something's happening between them--it's intense, a little (a lot) out of control, and real. Only Avery doesn't know everything about Stephanie's past. And the one exception to his rule might just be the one girl who could destroy his career.
Well slap me and call me Sally, where has Victoria Denault been all my life!
This was my first taste of her work and it was delicious.
The perfect prescription:
Take one Hot Jock and one Sexy Teammate's sister,
mix and consume
for a fantastic time!
Avery was a wet dream come true.
His body was a rock hard sculpture.
He was a calculated machine with a panty wetting smile and a Dirty Mouth. Biggest fault is being conditioned personally and professionally by his overbearing father /manager.
Stephanie was a triumphant woman making the most
out of her second chance.
She didn't hold back and she kept it 100% when it came to her opinion.
These two had an immediate attraction! They tried to act on it and some force of nature always intervened.
It was refreshing seeing Avery come into his own person and dominate his life. It was something he needed to do on his own and he found a way to do it. Steph knew he was always that man, he just didn't believe in himself as she did. What's crazy is that she struggled believing in her own happiness.
These two were a match that was destined to happen despite all the road blocks and I Love a Love like that.
The characters were so real it was uncanny. I mean really down to earth and the writing was superb!
All the relationships in this story were real-life like. It felt like a close knit family with some deceit, drama and dysfunction, you know nothing but an average "normal" family.
I was rooting for these two just like Avery's teammates were rousing him.
I have now found another awesome writer to stalk.
