Riggs (Arizona Vengeance, Book #11)
Release Date: October 26, 2021
Known as the team loner, Riggs Nadeau gives his all on the ice, but nothing extra off it. A beautiful stranger is about to cause chaos in his very structured world.
As a professional hockey player, people think I live a charmed life. On the surface, I do. But they don’t know the horrors of my childhood, or the real reason that I have custody of my seventeen-year-old sister, Janelle. And that’s exactly the way I like it. They may think I’m a prick because I don’t like to share, but that’s fine. They don’t know me, and they don’t need to.
In an effort to help Janelle get settled in Phoenix and stay out of trouble at school, I set her up with a job at Clarke’s Corner, the local bookstore owned by the girlfriend of a teammate. It’s there that she makes friends with Veronica Woodley, the extremely annoying, arrogant, money-hungry divorcee who I don’t want anywhere near my sister. Janelle insists I’m completely wrong about Veronica, but I refuse to accept that. I have to keep reminding myself that that the gorgeous blond with legs for days is off limits.
Through a series of events, I start to see Veronica for what she really is—an amazing woman who has survived her own hell to come out even stronger. I have to admit, we’re more alike than not and the attraction between us burns hot.
Maybe I was all wrong about my ability to love and commit, but when the past comes back to haunt me, can I be the man that Veronica, and Janelle, deserve?
(narrated by Connor Crais and Savannah
Riggs….Oh sweet mother…
Riggs is new to the team and new to Arizona. He’s also new to having custody of his teenage half sister. As if being a professional hockey player wasn’t stressful enough, he now has to worry about someone else too.
When the woman that he had hired to watch his sister falls down the stairs, Riggs is left with no choice but to allow his sister to stay with her coworker from Clarke’s book store – a divorcee with a lot of time and money on her hands.
“Ooh, look at the fancy, rich lady using fancy, rich words.” Fancy? Rich words? “Listen, motherfucker- “That’s as much as I get out – an effort to show him I can be course-when his arms come to my shoulders and he snatches me again him. His mouth collides with mine, and there is no holding back the groan of pleasure that rips out of my throat from on his taste and touch. And, oh how, can the man kiss. “That was eye-opening. At least now I know how to shut you up”.
I absolutely loved this book! Riggs is all man and knows everything – until he gets in over his head and put in his place.
