Untrusting and traumatized by his childhood, Finn won't let anyone close. When he gets in a bit of trouble, he'll have to appear to be mature and settled to avoid a trade. Willing to do anything to stay with his team, he agrees to act as the new intern's fiancee to give himself the respectability his image needs.
What happens when the line between fake and real begins to blur? He will have to face some hard truths about himself and let his emotions out to play.
While the villain in this piece is a bit over the top, Finn's inner turmoil and struggle to open himself up to someone else make for an interesting and enjoyable sports romance read. He's funny and kind when he allows himself to be, with a dash of conflicted, possessive alpha thrown in for good measure.
Four stars for this hockey romance.
This is an honest, voluntary review of an ARC of the story.
