Radio producer Jamie MacMahon is in over her head with ex-hockey player-turned host Drew Milan. She's attracted to the man who earned the nickname "the Beast" during his playing days from the moment they meet, but he's her boss and she loves her new job. She's made plenty of mistakes with men and loathes the thought of being yet another plaything for Drew, a man who sleeps with women but doesn't date them.
Drew doesn't want to lose a great producer and knows Jamie deserves a real relationship, but can't stay away from the sizzling chemistry they create every time they're together. Jamie's insecurities and the very real prospect of having to leave a great job if this thing doesn't work out clash hard with Drew's fears about opening his heart and the possibility of losing his first competent producer. Nothing's going to get resolved if one of them won't say it: "Come on, baby, talk to me."
What I thought:This was such an enjoyable read! I quickly grew attached to the characters and quickly had an invested interest in the outcome of their pending relations. It was a nice, fun, light read that kept me turning the page with no regard for time or responsibilities.
The story was interesting. I liked the idea behind the talk show. While I've read plenty of athlete related romances, this was a slightly different spin since Drew was retired and spent his time following hockey and doing anything hockey related on his show. I'm not a big sports person so this definitely made it easy for someone like me (who knows nothing of hockey) to follow along and not feel left behind in different scenes.
What I liked most was that if you took out all the sex, there is still a great story going on. I've read my fair share of Loose Id novels and I think this is one of the best. I, being a hopeless romantic, love the story. The struggle to finally get together. Neither the story, nor the romance gets left behind in this book. A hot read that should definitely get picked up!
