Rough Riders Hockey Series – Book 4
By Skye Jordan
From the New York Times bestselling author who brought you the scorchingly sexy stuntmen of Renegades–Skye Jordan delivers another sizzling series starring her mouthwatering brand of high-octane heroes. Introducing the Rough Riders’ Hockey Series. “The intense, tight-knit men of the Rough Riders’ hockey team will win readers over in a heartbeat.” ~Marina Adair, #1 Bestselling Author
Tate “The Saint” Donovan’s jaded outlook really makes him more of a devil’s advocate. Ever since he discovered his ex-wife doing more in their bedroom than rooting for the home team, he’s given up on finding The One. In fact, he’s given up on finding Any One. So he isn’t surprised when his teammate’s engagement party is one mishap away from going up in flames—until a sexy, free spirit whisks in from Paris and drags the party from the fire. She’s whimsical, wild, and oh so wrong, but her breezy, freestyle attitude makes her utterly irresistible. Tate’s halo slips. He takes a walk on the wild side. And discovers wrong has never felt so right.
With big plans on the horizon, Olivia’s laissez faire attitude toward men is a perfect pairing. She’s drawn to Tate’s wounded soul, and the protective warrior beneath his brooding mask intrigues her…right into bed. Olivia quickly realizes the possessive passion he brings to the bedroom is like nothing she’s ever experienced, and her feelings for Tate turns her take-it-or-leave-it style love life on its head.
With her return to Paris imminent and his grueling hockey season approaching, Olivia and Tate must face the possibility that they are destined to be nothing more than star-crossed lovers.
The Rough Riders Hockey team is on a winning streak. Wild Zone, the fourth book in the series has scored a winning goal.
Tate Donovan has been down for the past year since his ugly divorce. He found out his wife had cheated on him throughout his marriage. His marriage was based on lies and deception. Tate is the kind of man that believes in strong family values and committed relationships. He is not a one night stand kind of guy even though his buddies and teammates are encouraging him to do so. He’s not interested in dating as well until he meets Olivia Essex.
Olivia has come home to DC for a visit with her family before she starts culinary school in Paris. She has spent the last ten years globe trotting around the world working with famous chefs and 5 star restaurants. She’s ready to get her chef certification and run her own kitchen. Her vacation turns into a stressful visit with her family. The tensions that made her leave home ten years earlier have elevated into hostile emotions and resentful feelings. Olivia loves her family and is hurt by their actions. She would do anything for them but what they want of her she cannot give. They want her to sacrifice her future for their failing events business. She was under the impression it was successful until she returned home and found out the truth. The only thing good about this visit is the sexy hockey player, Tate Donovan, who she met at one of her family’s events.
Tate has met a woman that has captured his interest. She’s a free spirit with a heart of gold. He has to make the choice of taking a chance at something wonderful for a short amount of time or missing out on something because he was too stubborn to let go of the past.
Tate and Olivia are pure magic together. To say opposites attract seems too easy, in this case opposites bring out the very best in one another. They both have to let go of their trust issues and figure out what is best for them both.
Skye Jordan did an excellent job with this book. The range of emotions between Olivia and Tate, Olivia and her family, and Tate conquering his past hurts had me reeling. I loved both of their dynamic personalities and their explosive relationship. Wild Zone was a big win in the Rough Riders series!
Skye Jordan is a pseudonym for New York Times bestselling romantic suspense author Joan Swan. Skye’s novels are about enjoying that little wild streak we don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we rarely get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, and maybe even acting a little naughty. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance. And, yes, even love, because while wicked-great sex is good, happily ever after with wicked-great sex is even better.
When she’s not writing, Skye loves to read, knit, craft, row, ride, and dabble in photography.
