Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defenseman Gus “the Bus” Persson. On the ice or off, he’s never had any trouble scoring, racking up goals—and girls. As the best player in his rookie class and the number-one draft pick of the Malibu Suns, he’s taking his game to the next level and is justifiably full of swagger.
So why does one of the Suns’ ice girls treat him like he’s invisible?
Bo St. James doesn’t have time for rookie hotshots who think their gloves don’t stink. She knows them, she works with them, she trains them. It doesn’t matter that Gus Persson is the hottest newbie she’s ever seen. She knows his type. She’s got big plans of her own, and she’s not going to let some cocky rich kid athlete keep her from her goals.
But there’s a chemistry between them they cannot deny. A lust that burns so hot, it threatens to melt the very ice on which they make their livings. The game has changed for both of them. Together, can these two play to win?
Misadventures With A Rookie by Toni Aleo is the HOT HOCKEY romance you’ve been waiting for! AVAILABLE NOW!
I am truly enjoying the Misadventures series, as they are fun, quick and sexy reads. In Misadventures With A Rookie we get Gus “the Bus” Persson and Bo St. James. The cocky jock used to getting what and who he wants, and the girl determined to stay away from guys just like Gus.
Bo knows what it means to fall for a guy like Gus. The heartache they leave behind. So no thank you. He can take his charming self and go chase after some other girl. Bo is determined to reach her goals. After all she lost and gave up, she knows she can never allow herself to be put in the same situation again.
Gus is doing all he can to be sent up to the NHL. It is what he always dreamed off. Of course, he is enjoying all the perks that come with that. Including having his pick with the ladies. He was never ready to get serious, until Bo. Something about the feisty redhead who continuously pushed him away draws him in.
No woman has ever turned down Gus, until Bo. But even as she keeps him at arm’s length, he can tell she is attracted. Their chemistry is undeniable. Can he break down her walls and get her to open up to him? Or will her past come between them before they even have a chance to see what they have?
Misadventures With A Rookie was a sexy and funny read about two people with a strong connection. I loved how Gus slowly broke all of Bo’s walls. He was funny and caring. Though Bo tried to put up her walls, she was sensitive, sweet and so strong, even when she could not see it. A great sport romance with all the feels!
