He’s playing hurt. She’s laying low. And they’re both flirting with disaster.
Chase: The last thing I’d ever want to do is let my team down. After overcoming my bad-boy reputation, I was dominating on the ice. But things aren’t going so well this season, and even my parents think I’m partying again. Now I’m really worried about my career. The only bright spot in my life is the Twitter flirtation I’ve struck up with pop princess Jordyn Banks. Turns out she’s a huge hockey fan—and she’s willing to wager a date on her favorite team. . . .
Jordyn: Even though I’m an L.A. fan now, I’ve always had a soft spot for the Aces, since I grew up in Chicago. Then I lose a bet to Chase Hartman, and suddenly I’m up close and personal with a pro athlete who’s anything but soft. Not only is Chase the hottest guy I’ve ever met, he’s secretly super sweet. As if I had time for a relationship . . . yeah, right. But when I suddenly have nothing but time on my hands, he’s the only one who understands. Now, with both of our careers at stake, Chase is tempting me to put my heart on the line too.

First of all, it took me almost a week to finish this book. To say that it didn’t hook me and it didn’t excite me, it’s an understatement. I love books that keep me up all night and that i can’t put down. 

Famous hockey players meets Taylor Swift. 
They’re each other’s fan and they start flirting on Twitter during hockey plays. They set a date, they have fun and build their relationship slowly and carefully. She’s down to earth for such a big celebrity, but i didn’t like him so much. His jokes are crass and that’s far from considering it a dirty talk. He has childhood issues because of his parents and she doesn’t have any self confidence. 
Their characters aren’t bland, but they haven’t spoken to me at all. 

The plot is sort of uneventful, except for the whole “playing hurt” part.
I love the “wakeing” in the end, though and the closure/conclusions taken by both of them.

I haven’t read the other books in the series, so maybe if you did and liked them, definitely you should read this one too. 🙂
All in all, it wasn’t bad, but kinda unmemorable for me.
