Playing for Keeps

Playing for Keeps Summary

A sexy, brother's best friend hockey romance from New York Times bestseller Kendall Ryan, kicks off a series you'll devour!



I've never been so stupid in my entire life.

My teammate's incredibly sweet and gorgeous younger sister should have been off-limits, but my hockey stick didn't get that memo.

After our team won the championship, and plenty of alcohol, our flirting turned physical and I took her to bed.

Shame sent her running the next morning from our catastrophic mistake. She thinks I don't remember that night—but every detail is burned into my brain so deeply, I’ll never forget. The feel of her in my arms, the soft whimpers of pleasure I coaxed from her perfect lips…

And now I’ve spent three months trying to get her out of my head. Which has been futile, because I’m starting to understand she’s the only girl I’ll ever want.

I have one shot to show her I can be exactly what she needs, but Elise won’t be easily convinced.

That’s okay, because I’m good under pressure, and this time, I’m playing for keeps.

When I’m in the car I like to listen to books but when I looked for this one they had all the other books but this one! So my question is why can’t they have this one on the site but they have all the others!15

Loved this story!5 star

The story of Justin and Elise is sweet, romantic, but also frustrating as they muddle their way through their changing relationship. They finally figure out what most of their friends and family have known all along!55
