of you.Tough? Damn right.
Smart? Don’t let the hockey uniform fool you.
Large and in charge? Honey, I’m the biggest, baddest, mother pucking-est
machine to ever own the ice. I shoot. I score. In and out of the rink. I don’t
come early, but I come often, if you know what I mean. And I always leave the
ladies wanting more.
Until that chick last night.
I’m no one-thrust wonder, and you’re damn right I’m going to prove to her I can
do better. But every time I think I’m finally on my way back into her pants,
she one-ups and out-balls me.
I should cut my losses, lick my wounds, and walk away.
But Zeus Berger doesn’t walk away from anything.
Especially when she’s the only woman in the world who might be able to handle
spider-fearing mother pucker to ever play in the NHL)
where I’m strolling in with my twin brother on my left and my brother from another mother on my right. A passing server drops a tray of champagne.
Conversation stops. And a bunch of stuffy golf pricks gape at us like we’re a mutant alien circus freak show crashing their million-dollar wedding reception.
4 out of 5 ‘The big ones always fall so hard’ Stars
Oh how the mighty have fallen!! I actually liked reading Zeus and Joey’s story more than I liked some of the previous books in this series. And I say series lightly because each book can be read as a standalone but reading the previous ones does help with insight.
In previous stories, Zeus and his twin brother, Ares, are portrayed as the fun-loving, no-holds-barred, larger-than-life, badass-hockey-superstars. I enjoyed their parts in previous stories because they were so outrageously funny and super daring in all that they did. They embraced life on a whole new level and had no shame about it.
Zeus’ physical form is just as large as his cocky personality. Most women he was with could truly only handle him for one night or only wanted one night to be able to have the bragging rights of sleeping with a hockey star. Honestly I thought that Zeus was truly okay with that lifestyle but as the story unfolds you see that deep down in the recesses of his mind, Zeus really wanted someone to just accept him -size and all.
Joey is equally cocky in personality but being a female and having that type of personality puts her at a disadvantage because in a world of double standards, females with a huge personalities are looked over for those who are polished and more refined. Hey I’m not happy about it either but it’s mostly true. Guys aren’t always super turned on by a girl that can beat them at everything they can do and some they can’t. I thought it was such a turn on that Zeus did. He was beyond awed that Joey was besting him at most everything they did together. And being a badass pilot that defies gravity? Well those are just bonus points.
I think the two were so much alike in their vulnerability. Deep down they just want to be accepted and loved for who they are. Touching I know. But this story really was crazy funny but the story kinda hit a soft spot for me. Acceptance is something that everyone struggles with. Some find it easier than others. Zeus and Joey went years before finding people that truly accepted them and then years more before they found each other. I can’t wait to see who’s next to get matched in this crazy extended family!!

escape into sexy, funny stories way more than she likes perpetually cleaning
toothpaste out of sinks and off toilet handles. When she’s not reading,
writing, sleeping, or trying to prepare her adorable demon spawn to be
productive members of society, she’s fantasizing about chocolate chip cookies.
