both on and off the ice.Thrown together by Maggie s job at Make Your Move, a relocation firm, Jake and Maggie take their time getting to know each other, skating around the issue of the sparks that fly every time they re in the same room Trust and affection take time to build, and I really liked the way the author let it happen between these two characters without forcing it Maggie doesn t want a bad boy in her life, and Jake doesn t think he deserves a good woman, until he falls hard for one His patience with Maggie s damaged psyche made me want to stand up and cheer, and Maggie s growing faith in his kindness and integrity was a joy to read Jake s public bad boy persona hides a good man beneath that hockey jersey, and Maggie s prim and proper image hides a warm, loving woman in need of a strong, dependable partner They find each other in the end, of course no spoiler here , but it s the path they travel that makes a good story.Very enjoyable read, and if you re a fan of pro

taquineries entre joueurs Tout est l , et le m lange est habilement dos m me si je n aurais rien eu contre des sc nes suppl mentaires cheesygrin Gros point positif donc, et a m a donn une furieuse
