ONCE PURE (Shattered Past #3) by Cecy Robson

"As a fan of Cecy Robson’s Weird Girls series, I was excited to sample something different from her and also read my first fighter romance novel.

"Kat Latham returns to the world of rugby football in her London Legends series, this time with a second chance at love story between an man who has sacrificed everything including love for his career, and the one woman who might be more important than rugby TAMING THE LEGEND.

Romance chat about romance, hockey and hot dogs + Giveaway!

I love hockey — I follow blogs that talk about hockey, go to as many games as financially possible and even own a few of the Redwings jersey’s . . . . and right now the Redwings are in the playoff’s for the Stanley Cup only they are down one game — well, it is still early but they are not sweeping their opponent and that is making me nervous.
