Game Changer by Melissa Cutler
Welcome to Destiny Falls, New York, home of Bomb Squad—an ice hockey team full of rugged military heroes. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has the team captain packing his bags for greener pastures, but saying good-bye to the woman who’d captured his heart is easier said than done…
After being wounded in combat, Brandon Theroux lives every day like it’s his last. He never could have imagined that the sleek mechanics of his prosthetic leg would open so many doors, including minor celebrity status as a fitness model and a well-earned reputation as a rakish playboy. The only door it hasn’t opened is the one to Harper Johnson’s bedroom.
Harper has too much self-respect to join the ranks of Brandon’s “carpe diem” conquests, but when she needs someone to keep the peace in the tavern she owns, Brandon offers his help—as long as she agrees to a very tempting trade. It isn’t long before the two realize that a deal struck between friends who can’t keep their hands off each other has the potential to be a whole lot hotter than either of them is prepared to handle…
This is Harper and Brandon’s story. Brandon has a prosthetic leg after an IED explosion while overseas in the military. He’s a model and going to be on a television show to find his bride. Harper has lived a life of goodbyes and has since lived a life in which she’s not “living” at all. Her quick-to-blossom friendship with Brandon changes her way of living and she begins seeing situations from a brighter perspective. This is their tale of finding their own happily ever afters. I enjoy this Bomb Squad gang of hockey players and all of their quirks and banter. This gang makes Melissa’s books a fun and intriguing read. The sexual tension is hot and the friendships are real. I’m always ready for more after finishing one of Melissa’s novels. So here’s to waiting for the next. Give this a try and find your next book crush in Brandon. Rating: 4 stars
