Minnesota GlaciersA?? starting defenseman Henrik Grenick is good at two things: hockey and sex. HeA??s got it all-the career, the biceps, the babes. But the steady parade of women through his bedroom just leaves him wanting more, hunting for the next distraction. Until he meets Jacqui, who awakens a hunger he never knew he craved. Fiercely independent Jacqui Polson has no time for the seductive hockey player demanding her attention. More band geek than bimbo, sheA??s in an entirely different league, and growing up with four hockey-crazed brothers left her with no interest in that world. But damn, HenrikA??s hot. And when it comes to sex, Jacqui knows exactly what she wants. As their relationship moves beyond games, Henrik needs more-not just of JacquiA??s touch, but of her. Jacqui discovers there's more to Henrik than just the gruff facade. But after a lifetime of fighting their own battles, neither has ever let anyone get so close. As they soon find out, needing someone isnA??t a weakness, itA??s the only thing that mattersA?
