I’m the star right winger for the Vancouver Vipers, an unstoppable force, fast as lightning. My dream come true, and I’ve worked my whole life to get here. I don’t plan on giving it up, but if I want to keep playing hockey, I’m going to need all my limbs. To ensure my body parts stay intact, I only need to follow one simple rule.
Don’t touch my captain’s little sister.
Seems easy enough. She’s snarky and bossy and has a mouth like a sailor. Truthfully, I’m bordering on the edge of terrified when she’s around.
The problem is I’ve seen too much. Too much of her, inside and out. And now? Now I want more.
But she’s my best friend’s little sister, and nobody’s ever been as off limits as Jennie Beckett is to me.
Her collection of toys is impressive, but I plan on showing her how a real man can make her vibrate without all the batteries. These hands can handle a hockey stick; surely they can handle her.
C’mon, Jennie. Play with me.

This was another good book from Mack. I love getting to see more of the characters I love fall in love and get their happily ever afters. This one was particularly fun because I already knew and loved Garrett and Jennie.
A few tropes to note:
– best friend’s sister/brother’s best friend
– friends with benefits
– forbidden romance
Like book 1, this was another character rather than a plot-driven book. It’s all about getting to know Garrett and Jennie and the skeletons in their closets and the demons in their minds they’re so desperately trying to get rid of.
There was something missing from this book that book one had. It seemed to be the same length (which was too long IMO) and was character-driven, the same so I’m left to wonder if it was the characters themselves. I think I just genuinely like Carter and Olivia better. I think that’s what made book one more enjoyable. Carter is just so stinking loveable.
I still really enjoyed this book, but it wasn’t my favorite ever. Very excited for the next books in the series though. I really hope sweet wonderful Adam is next!

Oh, this is another long one, eh? I thought the first book was a little too long as well but I did enjoy it (more than I expected to)! I’m looking forward to reading this one but I think I’m most excited for Adam’s story! 😍 Great review!
