Publisher's Summary

She's not looking for a hero. He's not looking for a hookup.
For Bella, the sweet-talking, free-loving, hip-checking student manager of the Harkness men's hockey team, sex is a second language. She's used to being fluent where others stutter, and the things people say behind her back don't (often) bother her. So she can't understand why her smoking-hot downstairs neighbor has so much trouble staying friends after their spontaneous night together. She knows better than to worry about it, but there's something in those espresso eyes that makes her second-guess herself.
Rafe is appalled with himself for losing his virginity in a drunken hookup. His strict Catholic upbringing always emphasized loving thy neighbor - but not with a bottle of wine and a box of condoms. The result is an Ivy League bout of awkwardness. But when Bella is leveled by a little bad luck and a downright nasty fraternity stunt, it's Rafe who is there to pick up the pieces.
Bella doesn't want Rafe's help, and she's through with men. Too bad the undeniable spark that crackles between the two of them just can't be extinguished.

Great Series!

Love this book and this entire series! I wasn't expecting Bella's book to be so serious but it was perfect. Bella and Rafe make perfect sense to me. They are so opposite but that is what works for them. This book hot a lot of emotions for me. Sarina Bowen has moved up to a must buy author for me. If you haven't tried her books yet, you really should!

Really great narration too.

Bella and Rafe are my favorite!

Any additional comments?

I started my love affair with Sarina Bowen with The Understatement of the Year. She won me over with Graham and Rikker. I found my love for MM romance with this series and I love her for it. And I loved her writing so much that I started this series from the beginning.

I found myself wanting Bella's story. I wanted to know this fierce girl who didn't care what others thought of her. I wanted to know this hockey-loving girl who fell for a man who hid his sexuality from her. I wanted to know Bella.

Sarina Bowen did not disappoint me with Bella's story. I hurt for the girl, I loved the girl, and I loved watching her love Rafe. And what a pleasant surprise Rafe is. OMG. If there has ever been a sweeter, better guy I haven't met him yet. I don't even know how to describe him without giving his entire personality away--and I don't want to be spoiler-y. Just know Rafe is AMAZING. And you're gonna love him.

You'll get to see some of your hockey favorites--including Graham and Rikker--and you'll meet some new characters too. New characters that you'll want to get to know a bit better. Here's to hoping this series continues beyond book 5!
