Veronica Andersen might not need a man in her life, but in the bedroom . . . well, that’s a different story. With her eye on making partner at her father’s law firm, she doesn’t have time to think about much beyond a fling. So when she can’t get her mind off the hot young thing who walks her dog, Veronica knows exactly what to do.

Brian Walsh isn’t just a dog walker. He’s a former hockey pro who’s rebuilding his life after a career-ending injury on the ice. He’s taking his time and enjoying his current freedom—and the four-legged companionship. If only he could stop fantasizing about the best two legs he’s ever seen. . . .

Brian and Veronica can’t help coming together. Again. And again. Suddenly, Veronica finds herself throwing all her best-laid plans out the window. Could she possibly have fallen in love with a man who’s wrong in every way—except the only one that matters?
I was really excited to read this one, because you know me and hockey romances. This is the second book in a series, but I didn't read the first one, but I don't think you really need to. I ended this book just feeling "okay" with this one.

I found Brian's part of the story to be really interesting, a dude who had nothing but hockey and now he's trying to figure out what to do with his life. Veronica, I just didn't gel with. She ran hot and cold with Brian so much that it was starting to annoy me. I also just felt like there was extra drama with her dad that felt like too much.

I wanted strictly a romance, so all the family drama to this book, just wasn't what I thought I was getting into. Don't get me wrong, her dad sucked, but I just didn't understand why she felt like she had to impress him so much. I would have wanted nothing to do with him. 

This book does have happy ending so I was glad about that, and it does have some great steamy parts. If you like romance like this, I would definitely recommend.
