Slap Shot by Lily Harlem

Book three in the Hot Ice series.

They say a leopard can’t change its spots. They’re wrong, because I did! Now I’m successful and independent and busy heading up my own company. I don’t have time for the complication of a man in my bed—not yet. That plan is years down the line.

Or so I thought. Because when a certain devastatingly sexy hockey captain sets his sights on me, my old impulsive self is determined to make up for two years of abstinence. I had to get sweaty, naked and dirty real quick. Heck to the consequences, regardless of the outcome. It’s all about immediate pleasure and intense satisfaction.

Trouble is, best laid plans never run smoothly and before I know it, I’m working a pole again and running for my life. Just as well Rick “Ramrod” Lewis lives up to his reputation and his name—big, bad and fortunately playing to win!

Dana was a pole dancer and changed her life around. Now she's a successful businesswoman intent on making the parties she organises the best they can be. Nothing can sway her from that path. Until she meets Rick, a famous hockey player, with his intentionally cheesy pick-up lines meant to make her smile and grab her attention. He sweeps her off her feet. She'd vowed never to get involved, not for a long while anyway, but Rick weaves his way not only into her panties but also her heart--something she hadn't expected at all.

But now he's there she can't stop thinking about him, and oh, those brawny muscles and that way he has about him keeps her coming back for more. He'll have you just as hooked! Add a bunny boiler ex-one-night stand into the mix and you have yourself quite a tense read at times.

The men on stilts juggling fire at the drawbridge entrance had been easier to organize but the glass pumpkin-shaped carriage had been considerably trickier.

"If you like it I'll make you a hairy one later."

...looking like a perfect slice of heaven all wrapped up in muscle.

His big body created a shadow against not just the flecked hessian carpet but also on the opposite wall, creeping up and over the photograph of a giant birthday cake with a team of cheerleaders bursting out of it.

...looking like a walking invitation to sin...

"I want you to dance for me, Dana."

"Fuck the rules."

An excellent read that I didn't want to put down, Slap Shot is yet another fabulous book from Lily Harlem. Her 1st person is intimate, fresh, and enjoyable. Very highly recommended.
