Synopsis from Goodreads
My name is Dax Monahan and hockey is my passion. And if you want to succeed in this sport you have to bust your ass 24/7. I’ve never had a hard time focusing on my career, but when my past comes knocking, no amount of training can prepare me for what lies on the other side of the door.
Regan Miles was always like a sister to me. When a shared tragedy brings us face to face after several years, I’m shocked to see just how much she’s changed. Gone is the shy, awkward little girl that always used to chase me and her brother around. Instead, I’m faced with a gorgeous woman who makes it damn hard to concentrate on anything but her.
Turns out, she’s in trouble, and the only way out is to get married.
I surprise myself when I tell her to marry me. Order her, actually. And most shocking of all, she doesn’t even hesitate before saying yes.
So it’s settled. We’re getting hitched and she’s moving to Arizona with me. All platonic, of course.
I never knew I’d fall so hard for my best friend’s little sister.
Dax is still reeling from the loss of his best friend at the end of Legend especially as he is now responsible for his best friends little sister, Regan. Dax is an all-around good guy who takes his responsibilities seriously so when he uncovers the problems Regan is facing following the death of her brother, he steps up and finds the easiest solution to both of their problems, marriage.
It is obvious Dax and Regan belong together even though their relationship has an unconventional start. However, there is always the seed of doubt at the back of Regan’s mind due to her predicament. The resolution will definitely incur swooning.
It always blows my mind when the issues concerning the cost of medication are highlighted. The cost to manufacture a life-saving drug compared to the charge to the patient is nothing short of robbery; I can’t fathom the greed that places a price on peoples lives.
I love the close-knit community the Arizona Vengeance has formed among the players and staff; particularly the way they support each other on and off the ice. Catching up with the previous characters is always a bonus when you are invested in a series. I am preparing to have my heart ripped out in Tacker.
