Hockey goalie Tarah ‘TJ’ Elliot is too busy stopping pucks to go looking for love. When her friend Natalie sets her up through Madame Eve’s 1 Night Stand service, she grudgingly agrees to go. Her ultimate fantasy comes true when Scott Alarid, one of the top scorers in the league, shows up at her hotel room. Hockey player TJ can’t possibly spend a night with him, but Tarah certainly can.
Scott’s tired of dealing with women who only like him for his all-star status. After his teammates arrange a date for him using the 1NS website, he’s delighted to find a woman who doesn’t know a thing about the sport. But, will the truth force them to put their relationship on ice?
I love hockey. I used to play hockey. Therefore, I totally related to Goalie Interference. Not only because I got it. When you are a hockey player, you have two choices in men: a ref or another hockey player. That limits the pool of quality a huge amount, and I don’t say that in a bad way, I say it in the way that you get to know all these men like brothers. They sweat, they smell, they tell dirty jokes, they take you out to strip clubs to get drunk. They make you one of the men and it is really hard to pull of sexy with that set up. So, with all that factored in, I instantly related to Tarah.
The set up for this 1Night Stand book was entertaining and amusing. I found myself giggling and I wanted to thump Scott on the head a few times, because yes, he does play off the roll of cocky hockey player to well. I almost wonder how much contact these two women had with actual hockey players because they were spot on. I was then thrust in the middle of hot sexy, a moment of word vomit on the part Scott, and a chance reencounter that made me laugh so hard I wanted to cross check Scott right into the boards with HE got the attitude!
I am always gleeful when I come across a hockey, sexy story. Because I lived in that world, I know how hard it is to accommodate a relationship when traveling all the time. Your life is hockey! And what a hot job Emily and Angela did a giving us one hell of a sexy, hockey lovin’ 1Night Stand! Can’t wait for more!
