He knows how to score, on and off the ice
Allie Hayes is in crisis mode. With graduation looming, she still doesn’t have the first clue about what she's going to do after college. To make matters worse, she’s nursing a broken heart thanks to the end of her longtime relationship. Wild rebound sex is definitely not the solution to her problems, but gorgeous hockey star Dean Di-Laurentis is impossible to resist. Just once, though, because even if her future is uncertain, it sure as heck won’t include the king of one-night stands.
It’ll take more than flashy moves to win her over
Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.

These two come together in a unexpected way. It happened and that was good enough for Allie, she wasn't interested in anything else, but Dean is a heck of a charmer and won't give up trying to get Allie to succumb to his charms. They have very different personalities but their differences make them more appealing, their chemistry makes them a hot little number to watch.
The story has a natural flow, nothing felt forced, it was like sitting with your friend and she was relating the story to you. The characters were well developed and you understand when tragedy strikes how each of the main characters show a version of themselves that were not at all what we expected. Well put together, easy going Dean turns into an unrecognizable ball of grief and second guessing, so unlike the image he presented before the one incident happened. On the other hand, we see a incredibly strong and secure Allie, she goes fighting for the man she loves with all she has, but sometimes all the love in the world is not enough to get a person to see certain things.
I think this is my favorite book so far of this series, the author touch on some issues that are definitely life changing and bring a certain degree of maturity to the characters as well as enhanced the storyline.
The story leaves us with a little bomb at the end and I can't wait what's going to happen with Tucker.
