His mouth is hot enough to melt the ice
Ten days. That’s all I’m asking for.
But not one of my NHL teammates is willing to cough up a sister, cousin, or trusted friend to play my fake girlfriend for this wedding.
Pucking BS. Yeah, my mouth has been known to get me into places I don’t belong. But this Class Five panty melter is on lockdown because the last thing I need is another complication.
I’m about to give up when fate delivers the answer to my prayers.
I’m not her type.
She doesn’t date jocks.
All this sharp, sexy over-achiever wants is a little fun, an escape from her career driven life.
It’s a simple arrangement. So why am I complicating it?

OMG, I don’t know if I have the words to express how awesome Wade and Harlow’s book is, but I’ll try.
I loved that this was a fake relationship story that didn’t have me questioning even once after they got out of Wade’s truck on day one of ten that yeah, this could totally happen like that.
I loved that I was so distracted by the story that when things that were hinted at earlier were finally revealed, I gasped out loud (I may possibly have been in public, but I’ll never tell) because I’d completely forgotten about the earlier clues and I ended up just as shocked as Wade had to be by them.
I loved that Wade’s family and friends were there for Harlow, in a way that no one else had ever been until those ten days began.
I loved how freaking good Harlow and Wade are together. They’re hot together, of course, but OMG they’re also just so darn sweet together. And before they’re even a week into their fake relationship, each is more than willing to throw down in order to show their support of the other. So. Good. Together.
I loved that the book’s “black moment” wasn’t one that threatened their relationship, not really. Things looked a little scary for a minute or two there, but there was absolutely nothing that caused either of them to be truly worried about the solidity of their relationship. Not once they managed to re-connect with each other, anyway. And that made my heart so darn happy.
And I loved that “one month later” scene when Harlow finally learned to appreciate dating a guy who plays hockey. Pure. Gold.
I absolutely can’t wait until the next book in the series comes out, though I dare Ms Kelly to give me a better pairing than these two. Go ahead, I’ll wait. (I can’t promise that I’ll be doing it patiently, though! ;))
