She’s sworn off love, he’s sworn off sex, but together they’ll score the goal of a lifetime.
When Maxine Nicholls discovers her fiancé is cheating, she turns to fast food and nighttime soap operas, but her sister has a plan—unbridled rebound sex with a stranger.
As one of Toronto’s hottest players, Antony Laurent tallies scores on and off the ice, but when the chiseled defense man hits a slump, rumors of a trade to the minor league send him to ambush a managers meeting at a posh club.
That night a chance encounter ends up as an unforgettable evening of passion. But Maxine and Antony are about to discover a game of casual hook ups can lead to something neither one of them thought they deserved—the right fit.

My Review:
Where do I even start?  I LOVED this book!  It was so much fun!  And so REAL!  Maxine is a big girl, but in a real way, not the way that some books do, where she's big, but in the scope of the real world, not really that big.  And she has the same hang-ups and issues as those of us who are in real life big-girls. Then there's Antony.  Oh I loved him so much!  I loved his broken English, I love how much he adored Maxine in all her curviness.  (And this might be the book that pushes me into finally getting to a hockey game to check out some hockey players).  This was a page turner, I couldn't put it down!  Even as I was sitting in meetings at work now that school is getting ready to start again, I was scrolling page by page on my phone when I was able to, because I had to stay in this story.  Sex scenes were very steamy.  Probably shouldn't have read those at work.  I loved all the characters.  Loved how Maxine's brother Westley turned out with his issues, and how he handled letting the person he liked know at the end.  So much goodness in this story.  A highly recommended book for me, and a new author I'll be hoping to read more by in the future!
