Penalty Play by Lynda Aicher

Minnesota Glaciers’ starting defenseman Henrik Grenick is good at two things: hockey and sex. He’s got it all—the career, the biceps, the babes. But the steady parade of women through his bedroom just leaves him wanting more, hunting for the next distraction. Until he meets Jacqui, who awakens a hunger he never knew he craved.

Fiercely independent Jacqui Polson has no time for the seductive hockey player demanding her attention. More band geek than bimbo, she’s in an entirely different league, and growing up with four hockey-crazed brothers left her with no interest in that world. But damn, Henrik’s hot. And when it comes to sex, Jacqui knows exactly what she wants.

As their relationship moves beyond games, Henrik needs more—not just of Jacqui’s touch, but of her. Jacqui discovers there's more to Henrik than just the gruff facade. But after a lifetime of fighting their own battles, neither has ever let anyone get so close. As they soon find out, needing someone isn’t a weakness, it’s the only thing that matters…

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
Tired of the same old scene, Henrik Grenick finds himself spellbound in a music store listening to the familiar sounds of The Tempest. He was as intrigued with the person playing the sonata as he was enjoying listening to the music she played. Too bad she didn't seem interested in him.

Jacqui Polson is intrigued by the big guy who came in looking for guitar strings. When he asks her out, she reluctantly agrees.

As she gets to know him, the real Henrik, she can't help but fall in love with him; but she's not ready to share her secrets. Her fears are real and she uses those fears to push him away.

What worked: The heat and chemistry between Henrik and Jacqui is off the charts. I loved the way Henrik was wanting more and having to convince Jacqui that it could work.

Part of a Series: Yes, Power Play

Heat Level: hot!

I have enjoyed the previous two in the series, but this one really worked for me. Movingly, heart-breakingly good. A definite read at home with a tissue box nearby book – and at the same time one which will make you smile and chuckle. We get to see a good range of the Glacier team, and catch up with old friends, but concentrate firmly on Henrik. As the layers peel away, what we find is not what any of his team expect – but so good for the man. I loved Jacqui's enormous, protective and caring family – it just worked ...

So, I really do recommend this lovely story to you – and think it does a great job of being a Sports romance, and yet, so much more as well.
