Deflected (Seattle Sockeyes #9) - Jami Davenport

This is book #2, in the Madrona Island series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and to understand the characters and the series better, I recommend reading this series in order.


Alex AKA "Rush" is temporarily banished to an island to learn to calm down.  His team is concerned that he cannot stop his partying ways.  His drinking and playing around is catching up to him.


Rosalind meets Alex for the first time when he comes into her bookstore.  As a sheltered good girl, she does not recognize the Stanley Cup wining player. They clash and hate one another almost instantly.  But there is still a serious attraction on both sides.....


I enjoyed this story.  From start to finish you felt the tension and heat between these two.  I loved the banter and the fact that they truly had a lot in common once they took the time to find out.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
