He'll do whatever it takes to get her against the boards…
Sidelined by a potentially career-ending injury, the only thing hockey player Ryan Douglas should be thinking about is recovery. But after sharing a near death experience and a night of passion with a spunky brunette, the only thing on his mind is five and a half feet of sexy sarcasm. And he'll do whatever it takes to get her back in his bed--even if it means playing dirty.
Chloe Jacobs is done with fairytales. And men. She's kissed her share of frogs and what's it gotten her? Dumped by text--again. Determined to eighty-six illusions of romance and prove she's more than just a good-time girl, the last thing she needs is a pushy, arrogant hockey player testing her resolve. Especially one who's sinfully good with his hands and thinks date-by-blackmail is a perfectly acceptable social convention.
Ryan wants to play games? Fine by her, but this is one faceoff he's going to lose.
I absolutely LOVE finding new authors! Jennifer Bonds is a new author to me and boy, did she not disappoint in her latest RISKY BUSINESS book, ONCE UPON A POWER PLAY. I went into this super excited because I CRAVE sports romances, especially hockey ones. Bonds gives us a sexy and charming romance between hockey player Ryan Douglas and the sassy and unsuspecting Chloe Jacobs. Talk about a night to remember…caught in a sticky situation that is unexpected and a bit terrifying, Ryan and Chloe part ways only to be brought back together in one ridiculously HOT heated exchange.
There is INSANE chemistry between these two. They are both stubborn, going toe to toe in sexy verbal sparring matches. It’s hilarious. It’s steamy. It’s passionate. Once I picked this baby up, there was absolutely NO putting it down. Cocky meets sassy, and there is no turning back. Let the games begin.
I thoroughly enjoyed this steamy and engaging romance. It was page after page of sexy, witty banter, sarcastic play, and high-octane sexual tension AND encounters. I LOVED these characters. I LOVED the secondary characters, and I LOVED that this was told in dual POV. Ryan Douglas stole my heart with his rough and tender ways. He was cocky, charming, and insanely gorgeous. Chloe Jacobs was a kick-ass heroine who I related to on multiple levels. She was done with trying to find her prince charming, and what happens? She ends up finding so much more…her prince charming, her hero, and her happily ever after. Get ready to SWOON ladies!

“And what’s that?”
“I want you to be my girl.”
