"Once Upon a Power Play" [Risky Business Series, Book 2] by Jennifer Bonds (aka J. J. Bonds)
Author's Book Description :
A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
He'll do whatever it takes to get her against the boards…
Sidelined by a potentially career-ending injury, the only thing hockey player Ryan Douglas should be thinking about is recovery. But after sharing a near death experience and a night of passion with a spunky brunette, the only thing on his mind is five and a half feet of sexy sarcasm. And he'll do whatever it takes to get her back in his bed--even if it means playing dirty.
Chloe Jacobs is done with fairytales. And men. She's kissed her share of frogs and what's it gotten her? Dumped by text--again. Determined to eighty-six illusions of romance and prove she's more than just a good-time girl, the last thing she needs is a pushy, arrogant hockey player testing her resolve. Especially one who's sinfully good with his hands and thinks date-by-blackmail is a perfectly acceptable social convention.
Ryan wants to play games? Fine by her, but this is one faceoff he's going to lose.
My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! On the night that Chloe decides on giving up on dating and men, she meets Ryan (a pro-hockey player) at a grocery store and gets into a fight with him over a lime. What starts as arrogance on both their parts leads to protection when they get into an unexpected situation, than they find themselves fueled by more lust for one another then they ever expected. Yet as their lives unintentionally become thrown together, they get into a relationship where they’ll have to decide if they are willing to overcome their preconceived notions and fall for one another for good, or if they’ll have their past relationship hurts dictate what their future will hold.
I know the words I’m about to use do not really sound right together BUT they describe this novel to a T … as it was Erotically Adorable! *hehee* Basically I LOVED how cute, playful, and funny Chloe and Ryan were together while having most of their scenes to be so steamy it keeps you wanting more! Plus, though it’s the second novel in its series it is standalone too while giving you major updates about the other series’ characters. I also enjoyed reading about Ryan’s teammates and I’d love to read more about them too!
Nevertheless, Ryan and Chloe MADE me sit down and notice them. With Chloe’s flare and Ryan’s All-American Boy sweetness, I couldn’t stop being emotionally invested in this novel, laughing one moment and getting teary eyed during the deep scenes. Add in a little holiday “magic” and this novel has everything a romance reader lover could want!
I HIGHLY recommend this novel to those wanting to read a HOT hockey romance!!

Book Teaser(s) :
When his thumb made a lazy pass across her lower vertebrae, her body responded immediately. Such a simple thing, but it warmed her belly, lust pooling hot and heavy. Molten even. His touch had that effect. The man could take her from ho-hum to total eruption in a heartbeat. Like Maytag, he was built strong to last long. Fuck. Rest. Repeat. ~ within Chapter 7
