How exactly has one good deed landed me in the penalty box?

Ice Knights defenseman Zach Blackburn has come down with the flu, and my BFF—his PR manager—begs me to put my nursing degree to use and get him back to health. Of course she would call in a favor for the most hated man in Harbor City.

But when he’s finally on the mend and I’m sneaking out of his place, everything goes sideways. Paparazzi spot me and pictures, plus accusations that I slept with him, fly faster than a hockey puck.

At first, all of Harbor City wants my blood—or to give me a girlie-girl makeover. But then...the team finally wins a game. And now this fickle town wants me with the big jerk twenty-four seven.

Argh. I never slept with him the first time! But no one will listen. Then the grumpy bastard goes and promises to break his no-fan-appearances rule to help raise money for a free health clinic—but only if I’m rink-side at every game. That’s not a deal I can turn down.

But when the team keeps winning, and I realize there’s more to him than his bad reputation, suddenly remembering to keep my real hands off my fake date gets harder and harder to do.

This is book #3, in The Hartigans series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to understand the series, I recommend reading these in order.
Fallon gets suckered into
taking care of a spoiled hockey player when he is ill. Her friends and family think its funny since she loves hockey and is a nurse. Being attracted to the big lug isn't what she plans either.
Zach does not understand why so many people want to hate on him. All hockey player have off days, even some off seasons. Why is it someone wants him to suffers so much? Then an angel comes to make him better with her bitter tongue. If only he didn't want to see his torturer naked.
This battle of wills turns into such a great story for the two most hardheaded characters! I loved the banter, so fun and witty. Lots of heat and more people from the great series and families that make this such a good book. I enjoyed this book, and feel the wait for it was worth it.
