Kendall Ryan

Playing for Keeps (Hot Jocks Book 1)

A sexy, brother's best friend hockey romance from New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan, kicks off a series you'll devour!
I've never been so stupid in my entire life. My teammate's incredibly sweet and gorgeous younger sister should have been off-limits, but my hockey stick didn't get that memo.
After our team won the championship, and plenty of alcohol, our flirting turned physical and I took her to bed. Shame sent her running the next morning from our catastrophic mistake.
She thinks I don't remember that night—but every detail is burned into my brain so deeply, I’ll never forget. The feel of her in my arms, the soft whimpers of pleasure I coaxed from her perfect lips…And now I’ve spent three months trying to get her out of my head. Which has been futile, because I’m starting to understand she’s the only girl I’ll ever want.
I have one shot to show her I can be exactly what she needs, but Elise won’t be easily convinced. That’s okay, because I’m good under pressure, and this time, I’m playing for keeps.

    “You know who else likes salsa?” Becca asks, smiling up at me hopefully. “Elise.”

    My lips twitch with a smile. I fell for that pretty damn fast.

    t. When I’m on the ice—it’s her I’m skating for. When I’m home in Seattle, she’s the person I want to spend all my free time with. When I’m travelling, my brain is constantly calculating the difference in our time zones and when I might get to talk with her.

    I would make it my personal mission in life to make her happy if I could.
