And he’s every woman’s dirty fantasy in the state of California.., except one… Quinn Ashby.
Recent graduate of Penn and top of her class, Quinn is whip smart, ambitious and interning as the new marketing coordinator for the Bexley Bruisers American Hockey League team. The last thing she needs is to waste her time on guys…especially one as lethal to her focus as Cash Brooks.
But once the bad boy hockey star tempts her into his world, threatening her professional future, she’s forced to decide whether to let him into her heart…or to leave him behind forever.
Perfect Sense turns out to be a good story, but it lacked something that I can’t quite put my finger on. I think the lack of insta-love is what really kept me reading. At times I found myself not wanting to put it down, but then it would drag and I was forced to call it a night. I haven’t read enough SR to be tired of the trope, but I felt like I’ve read this story before. All-in-all, I liked it but I’m just not head over heels in love with it. I’m sure hockey lovers everywhere will enjoy this book more than I did.
This story focuses on Quinn and Cash. I won’t lie, Cash kept things interesting. If Quinn hadn’t played hard-to-get, I think it would have tore the story apart. I love the fact that she’s smart and knows what kind of woman she wants to be. She’s very studious, so while she was totally in agreement with the entire female population about the hot badboy Cash, she was very much focused on school and her future. And my God, Cash tried to woo her socks off, but she held out for as long as she could. I wasn’t surprised to find that they both had secrets, and were scared to open up to each other. Cash more so than Quinn.
The ending was kind of abrupt, and not at all what I was expecting. I’m not sure yet if I’ll read the next book, but I’m a curious person when it comes to relationship endings and secrets, so I may take that leap. This is a good read that I’m sure lovers of the genre will appreciate. I’m not a hockey fan, but Cash may just make me change my mind. If you like sports romance, this may be the book to add to your shelf. Recommended!
