Hockey playboy Michael King was a star – obnoxious, entitled, caught up in his own greatness. But when a career-ending injury has him walking with a cane, completely shattering his Stanley Cup dream, he responds like a child having a temper tantrum when his frustration becomes more than he can handle. An interior decorator arrives to make over his home, and he blasts her with all of his pain and anger. Despite needing the money, Ellie Sullivan won’t tolerate being treated like that by any man – and she walks out on him.
This book was a little slow in the beginning and I haven’t read many sports romance stories but it was a great book. I really liked the story about Michael, Ellie and her son Johnny. It was an enemies to lovers story and really liked how it all worked out. At the beginning Michael really got on my nerves and I didn’t like the person he was. I am glad he changed not only for Ellie but for Johnny as well. He did not like kids at all and it was so sweet how close him and Johnny got. He figured out he couldn’t live without Ellie and it was just super sweet how the story went. A great book that I would definitely recommend!
