Always a wingman . . .
Owen McConnell is used to being ignored. After all, it's only when he appears as the Colorado Avalanche's team mascot that he gets all the attention. When the costume is off, women tend to gravitate toward his famous hockey player friends. But after he meets lovely, damaged Paige Adams, he knows he can be the star player for her. She's raising funds for the hospital burn unit, and Owen's determined to help her out---and sweep her off her feet.
The burn unit has been near and dear to Paige's heart ever since the doctors helped her after a vicious attack. Yet the scars---both emotional and physical---haven't faded as much as she'd hoped. She's closed herself off from relationships, and the thought of opening up is terrifying. But Owen's sexy charm might be just the push Paige needs to start loving again.
Is That a Gun in your Pocket? Nope, it’s a Hard-On:
10 Reasons Why Sexy Scenes are Best!
Reason 1: Most hot guys don’t carry guns, but EVERY hot guy has a penis. However, bonus points goes to Police Officer/Military type Heroes who have both!
Reason 2: In sexy scenes, our super hunky hero is naked. Enough said.
Reason 3: After reading an action scene, readers may want to cuddle with their significant others for protection, but after reading a sexy scene, significant others get laid. Don’t believe me? There was a major baby boom about 10 months after the release of Fifty Shades of Grey. (Okay, so not an actual fact…might be worth a Google;))
Reason 4: In sexy scenes, readers can be at least 99% confident that no one is about to die.
Reason 5: Our hero is still naked.
Reason 6: Sexy scenes can be an education-readers learn new sexual positions or dirty talk to try with their own partners. You can’t really try anything you learn in an action scene without going to jail (unless it’s your actual profession, of course.)
Reason 7: In sexy scenes, handcuffs are much more fun for the person wearing them than in action scenes.
Reason 8: Sexy scenes get the heart racing in a good way, not a ‘sleep with a knife under your pillow’ sort of way.
Reason 9: Through sexy scenes, our heroines get to see the hero in action for what really matters to her. He may save her life once (or a dozen times if she’s one of THOSE heroines) but he has to pleasure her nightly for life if he’s to be a leading man in my books;)
Reason 10: Have I mentioned the hot as hell hero is NAKED?!
Team Romp for the Win!
She grinned. “I’m going to go see if Bernie is ready. Good luck,” she called as she headed toward the pro shop.
She scanned the clubhouse as she went. She’d yet to see Owen, and she hoped he wasn’t with the mascot. The day was going great so far. At the front desk, registration was going smoothly, the caterers were there already, and the food smelled delicious. She was relaxed and relieved. Seeing Owen would just make things awkward. She’d forgiven him for the date disaster, but now there was just a dull longing for something she’d never had any intention of letting herself have anyway.
At the change rooms, she saw a duffel bag on the floor under the only closed one. Must be him. Knocking once, it gave way, swinging open. “Oh sorry!” she said, seeing a man with his back to her.
He grabbed the mascot head on the floor next to him and shoved it on as he turned.
Her jaw dropped at the sight of the guy in boxer briefs and a mascot head.
Damn, Bernie was hot!
Obviously, she’d had all the wrong misconceptions about what the furry costume was hiding. Not that she had any preconceived notions, but a chiseled chest, broad shoulders, and a droolworthy six-pack was definitely not what she would have put money on.
He made a small coughing noise as he reached for the costume pants.
“So sorry. The kids were looking for you,” she muttered, desperate to avert her eyes, but somehow unable. When he turned to put his legs into the pants, she noticed several long scars along the right side of his body, extending from his ribs to the top of his oblique muscles.
Never in her life had she thought scars could enhance an appearance, but they only made this guy more appealing. And the full-sleeve tattoos covering his arms were hot. Bernie the mascot must have a rougher, more rugged alter ego…rougher, rugged, sexier alter-ego. “I’ll meet you outside,” she said, hurrying back out and resting against the wall. She forced a breath, desperate to cool herself. The rush of heat at the sight of those muscles had extended from her cheeks to her toes. Get a grip. The guy is a mascot. Hot body or not, he was probably much younger than her and maybe lacking slightly in the ambition department, unless this was a side job for extra cash…in which case, the guy was probably living paycheck to paycheck…Oh my God—was she really weighing pros and cons?
I’m giving away one ebook (Kindle or Nook) from the Colorado Ice series by Jennifer Snow.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
