After a brief marriage to an unfaithful, gold-digging wife, Jared Roderick is looking for the perfect good girl, and he thinks he’s found her. Sweet, quiet, prim Stephanie Clarke is exactly the woman he wants and nothing like his cheating ex. Now to convince a reluctant Steph they were meant to be together.
Steph has had enough of men controlling her life from her preacher father to her abusive boyfriend. She wants to regain the innocence she lost and ignore the ugliness of her recent past. She’s not the pure and sheltered virgin Jared is looking for and fends off his advances despite the sizzling chemistry between them. Jared is as determined to win Steph over as he is to win hockey games; but when his fantasy becomes tarnished, does he have the strength to skate the distance?

Shutdown Player: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey by Jami Davenport
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is book #10, in the Game On In Seattle series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this great series in order.
Stephanie AKA "Steph" meets Jared while she is working. They meet again later, and the attraction spark starts to flame. If she can just keep her past behind her, maybe she can think of having a future.
Jared AKA "Hot Rod" is trying to recapture his life after a bitter divorce. Seeing Steph at every turn has him in knots. Will the past and the pain ruin what has begun for them?
This series just continues to please the senses. It has all kinds of hot, with both men and women who are strong - yet vulnerable. This story fits in well with the characters heating up every time they are in the room together. Lots of secrets, surprises, and plenty of humor mixed in, this is a great read.
