Have you ever seen a cover and thought “I want to read that one, damn it, it’s pre-order!” Well, that was me so Tomboy by Avery Flynn made its way into my agenda to wait for impatiently.
The plot of this 235 page book is – How exactly has one good deed landed me in the penalty box?
Ice Knights defenseman Zach Blackburn has come down with the flu, and my BFF—his PR manager—begs me to put my nursing degree to use and get him back to health. Of course she would call in a favor for the most hated man in Harbor City.
But when he’s finally on the mend and I’m sneaking out of his place, everything goes sideways. Paparazzi spot me and pictures, plus accusations that I slept with him, fly faster than a hockey puck.
At first, all of Harbor City wants my blood—or to give me a girly-girl makeover. But then…the team finally wins a game. And now this fickle town wants me with the big jerk twenty-four seven.
Argh. I never slept with him the first time! But no one will listen. Then the grumpy bastard goes and promises to break his no-fan-appearances rule to help raise money for a free health clinic—but only if I’m rinkside at every game. That’s not a deal I can turn down.
But when the team keeps winning, and I realize there’s more to him than his bad reputation, suddenly remembering to keep my real hands off my fake date gets harder and harder to do.
My View– As I stated, I loved the cover art to this book and I wanted so much from it. The Hartigan family is awesome, and let’s face it, a whole series could be written about the team. It is a very addicting read and the passion can jump right off the page, especially their first almost kiss. I can still feel it writing this some time later. The story also has some hilarious moments. One in particular, Lucy arguing with the agent, had me legitimately LOLing. By the time I was done with this book I wasn’t ready for it to be over. Thank goodness for epilogues…
