While Texas is known for loving football, Lexi Stewart has always been drawn to the ice. Hockey is her passion, and she wants nothing more than to pursue a career in video editing for the home network of the Dallas Demons hockey team.
Lexi has an editing job for a corporate account, but it’s not fulfilling. Nor is her dating life, despite having the so-called help of The One Online Dating Service. Lexi knows there has to be more for her—on both fronts. She’s ready to take the next step, but it doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen anytime soon.
Until a flying puck changes everything.
Niko Xenakis is the new Dallas Demons TV producer, and he’s looking to make his mark in his new role and hopefully work his way back to his hometown of Baltimore. But once he meets Lexi, he might just change his mind on what he wants for his future . . .
But the road to love is never easy, complicated by the fact that they both carry emotional baggage from the past in their hearts. Can these two “breakout”of the past to find love in the present?
I would like to thank Aven for not only letting me be part of this tour but for the privilege of being one of her Beta Readers. I love all of Aven’s books but this one has a special place in my heart. I claimed Niko as my book boyfriend before Aven had even written one word of this book. I just knew he was going to be everything you need in a book boyfriend.
Niko has just moved to Dallas to be the Dallas Demons TV producer. Niko grew up in the Greektown in Baltimore. He spent his evenings and weekends working in his parents bakery. They thought that his TV dreams were just that and would never amount to anything. They expected him to take over the bakery when they retired. Niko however set out to prove them wrong.
For those of you who have read the other Dallas Demon books you would have already been introduced to Lexi. Lexi is Kenley’s best friend. Lexi has a passion for Ice Hockey. She’s loved it ever since she was a kind and dreams of working at Total Access Total Sports or TATS as it’s known. TATS is the channel that shows the Dallas Demons games and Lexi would kill to be involved in the editing for the team.
Both Lexi and Niko have issues in their past. Lexi has abandonment issues, Niko feels he’s not good enough for her which leads to some troubled times.
I love every single page of this book and I don’t have the words to express how Aven makes me feel when I read her words. She had me laughing, screaming in frustration, crying and then laughing all over again.
I can’t wait for you to all read this book and I hope for many more stories from Aven.
