Brief Sumarry:
After a string of bad set-ups and boring dates, Reese Brannon is done with men. She’s focused on her job as a fitness model and blogger. Her life in the city is fun. She’s young. There’s no need to look for a man because she doesn’t want one. Especially when relationships usually end in heartbreak.

Jean-Pierre Rochat—known as JP— is done with women. All this Swiss hockey player has ever wanted is to fall in love, but his relationships never end with a happily ever after. Believing he’s always going to be dealt the friend card, JP is over it. If he’s going to be stuck in the friend zone, he’ll keep things casual for his new endgame.

But will one hot Dallas summer night change everything for Reese and JP?

Because when the two meet again when JP returns for hockey season, Reese finds her attraction to him hasn’t waned since their first meeting. Charming and intelligent, JP is different in all the right ways, but Reese realizes letting him in will make her vulnerable, something that terrifies her. JP never forgot Reese from their initial introduction last winter, and the sparks fly for him even more so the second time. But with Reese, his thoughts are anything but casual . . .

Can JP and Reese let their guards down to take a chance on love? Or will this simply be a game of playing defense?

 I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Okay, I have to start of this review by saying Aven of course out did herself on this one…& I’m not talking about the whole book (cause she did, she always does!), but one scene in particular. This isn’t a spoiler because every romcom has a first kiss, but this first kiss stands apart from any other than I’ve ever read. IT IS THE BEST FIRST KISS EVER WRITTEN. Honestly, Aven took this one to the a whole other level. JP & Reese are one of my fave couples of Aven’s to date. Reese and I are very similar in the whole giving up on dating (still waiting for my JP over here.), but her outlook on dating is very fresh and real life. I promise you this 5 star read is exactly what you need in your post summer life, pick it up and devour it on a weekend, cause you won’t be able to put it down, xo!


About the Author
I live in the Dallas area with my family. I enjoy clipping out recipes I will never get around to trying, working out, and chatting with friends on social media. I’m a hockey nut (Go Stars!) and watch as much as humanly possible. I also love shopping and fashion and admit to being obsessed with whatever the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing. In addition to be obsessed with the Duchess, I’m equally obsessed with any show or cookbook featuring Gordon Ramsay.
