Luc Richard is the hottest player in the NHL--and it has nothing to do with hockey. His racy relationship with his supermodel ex set the tabloids on fire but nearly put his career on ice. To avoid being traded, Luc agrees to take a break from the spotlight--and from women--and spend the off-season at home in Silver Bay, Maine. It's the perfect plan... until he reconnects with Rose.
Rose Caplan is tired of being shy, sweet, and safe. She's ready for passion, romance--and Luc. Having loved him longer than she can remember, she's finally ready to prove she's not the same innocent little girl he once knew. Off the ice Luc doesn't do games, but this new Rose makes him feel like playing a little dirty. If he's really got a shot at her heart then he's not just playing to win. He's playing for keeps.
I love this series and Making a Play does not disappoint. A family of uber-hot hockey players that are genuinely good guys (despite their playboy pasts)? Yes, please. Luc and Rose grew up together, their families close and they became close, but Luc always thought Rose was too good and innocent for the likes of him. Rose has loved Luc her whole life, but he dates super models and lives the life of a hot professional sports star, so why would he want her?
Luc and Rose are the standard sweet girl and bad boy, who thinks he shouldn't have her, but there are enough twists in their story to keep it fresh and interesting. Victoria Denault's Hometown Players Novel is sport's romance perfection. The Final Move is leap frogging to the top of the TBR pile!
