Sometimes the line between love and insanity is as thin as an ice skate’s blade...
Bad girl Gillie Pike has gone straight, but someone with a lot of money wants to bring her out of retirement to steal the Cup and make sure it's found in star goalie Flynn Kazakov's possession. They call him Crazy-kov for a reason and nothing makes him more nuts than his best friend's sexy little sister who swears she's the only one who can keep him out of jail and on the ice.
“Buy a girl a beer?”
“I don’t think that’s a good idea.” It wasn’t even in the same hemisphere as a good idea.
Gillie stepped closer and raised herself up to her tiptoes, brushing her tits across his chest and bringing her full lips within kissing distance of his earlobe. “From what I remember you liked bad ideas.”
Blade by Avery Flynn is an entertaining, sizzling romance. The story is set in the author’s B-Squad world, but it’s not necessary to have read the previous books in the series to fully appreciate the tale although fans of the series will recognize previous favorite characters.
The story is a second chance romance between Flynn Kazakov, a hockey goalie for the New Orleans Rage, his hometown team, and Gillie Pike, a retired cat burglar who now owns a jazz club in Texas. Flynn broke her heart three years ago when he walked away from their relationship after discovering that she made her living via her sticky-fingers. Flynn is at the pinnacle of his career and Gillie has turned over a new leaf since then, but the two haven’t been in touch since their breakup.
Now, Gillie’s nightclub is failing and she’s desperate to keep it going. An old friend from her thieving days offers her a way to save her nightclub, but his proposition requires that she frame Flynn for the theft of the championship game’s cup. While Gillie was initially going to refuse the job, she experiences second thoughts and accepts. Strap yourself in as the two engage in a hot skate on thin ice.
Neither Flynn nor Gillie has been the same since their relationship ended. Their chemistry is off the charts but there’s much in the trust department that the couple must navigate if they aim to pair up again. I thoroughly enjoyed their witty banter and sexy times, but will good intentions be sufficient for the two to come out on top?
Blade is a short, fun and exciting action-packed adventure – perfect to dive into when you crave a quick escape.
