The ice is a cold mistress. As the league’s most eligible goalie, Max Fournier has access to his fair share of willing puck bunnies, but right now he’s more interested in bringing home another championship than a one-night stand. A romantic at heart, Max believes in love; he’s just not great at relationships. So when he finally meets a nice girl who’s not blinded by his celebrity, he’s feeling the heat—and the pressure to save her from herself.

Between working two jobs and raising her sister’s kids, Julianne Bradley doesn’t have time for sports—or men. All she knows about Max is that he’s the sexiest customer to ever grace her gas-station counter. And he sees past her tired eyes and makes Jules yearn for things she can’t have: a glamorous fling, a passionate lover, and the time to enjoy both. Max makes her feel like Cinderella, even though Jules has enough baggage to crush a glass slipper. Luckily, he’s no prince—only a fierce competitor determined to win her heart.

An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review and did not influence my opinion of the book.

It’s official. I LOVED IT! THE. BEST. IN. THE. SERIES! ♥ MAX! ♥

‘MAX’ is about the goalie for the Cold Fury Hockey team, named Max and a single “parent” named, Jules. They first meet while she is working at the convenience store he happened into one night while craving candy bars and Mountain Dew. He comes to her rescue when she is being harassed by two men. After the men leave, he hears screaming from the back room. Running back there with Jules, Max is shocked to see three children, well two hellions and an angel because the two boys have taped the little girl to a chair. Running to the aid of the little girl is Jules, with Max close behind. Max soon finds out that Jules is an independent and strong woman when she asks him to leave, letting him know his help isn’t needed. Max can’t get her out of his head and continues to go and see her. Realizing she doesn’t know who he is and doesn’t seem interested in his position if she does, intrigues him all the more. And the more time he spends with her, the more he spends with the kids, the more he realizes, Jules is a once-in-a-lifetime woman.

❝ There’s something about you that makes me believe everything is possible.❞

Max, there is so much about this character that I loved. He was slightly alpha with a whole lot of heart. He was strong and sensitive and caring. He knew what he wanted and went for it. He was prince charming.

Jules is spent. She works two jobs and is single-handedly raising 3 children. She’s a hard worker, she’s selfless and strong. She’s also funny, quick witted and resilient! While she adores Max, she isn’t sure where or how to fit him in her life.

❝Why are you such a good guy, Max? ❞
❝It’s easy for the right girl,❞ he says back.

This was a relatively quick read for me, once I started, it was difficult to pull my attention away. I enjoyed every little morsel of this book!
