Henrik is your typical player and I don’t just mean hockey player. The man is known for his exploits with the women, but it’s not his prowess in the bedroom that has earned Leila’s contempt, it’s the way that he callously treated her while they were both in college that really sealed the deal. Henrik has had his eye on Leila since she was eighteen, but family circumstances and a bro code that says you don’t mess around with your best friend’s kid sister kept him from ever acting on his interest. Too bad he never really explained that too her.
Leila is the younger sister of Austin, Henrik’s best friend, and she’s also the best friend of Drew, Henrik’s younger brother. Always on the fringes of Henrik’s life but never directly involved. She’s crushed on Henrik from way back but now avoids him whenever possible. When Leila finds she needs someone with a certain moral flexibility and specific skill-set, Henrik is the convenient and obvious choice to help her exact a little revenge against her cheating boyfriend.
The road for Henrik and Leila is loaded with pitfalls. They’ve known each other a long time, but their newly resurrected involvement is founded on mistrust and guilt, and Leila’s not going to get over years of being ignored easily. Henrik finds himself in a position of actually having to work to stay in Leila’s life, as a friend… not even as a booty call. But I did like that Henrik was not arrogant about it and sincerely worked to win Leila’s friendship. He may have been fooling himself that friendship was all he wanted, but you have to start somewhere, right?
My only minor issue with this book is that I never really got the importance of the hearts. Were they important? Or am I reading too much into it? I mean, they’re pretty and Henrik likes them, but why are there four? Is it more than just a commonality that both have tattoos?
In the end, it’s all the behind the scenes drama that makes this book more than your typical hockey book. There are hidden secrets, family tragedies, professional rivalries, it has it all. I thought I knew where this story was going but Blevins actually surprised me with the ending. I hope she continues this as a series, because I would love to hear more from Austin, Drew and Sam.
