Miranda: Even though I’m broke, putting myself through college, and working two jobs, I’m trying to make the best of it. Meanwhile, Jake Birch, hockey’s hottest bad boy, lives in a luxury hotel in downtown Chicago—and still complains about every little thing in his penthouse. But after I tell him off, instead of getting me fired, Jake requests me as his personal housekeeper. Then he starts flirting with me. Only I’m not flirting back . . . at least, I’m trying not to. Did I mention that he’s hockey’s hottest bad boy?
Jake: I’ve met the best woman at the worst possible time. Miranda is the fire to my ice—a sexy, charmingly candid spark who breaks down my walls and reminds me what it’s like to feel again. But I’m being forced to date my team owner’s daughter to keep my job, so I can’t be caught with Miranda. Still, we’re getting closer—until Miranda finds out about my “girlfriend.” And that’s not the only secret I’ve been keeping. But Miranda’s the one I want . . . even if she doesn’t believe me.

Thank you! I needed that. I was in a little bit of a reading slump and you pulled me out of it with this sweet standalone. Kind of sad it’s a standalone (I was looking forward to some team mates, but I’ll get over it).
Ok. Ok. Here’s my review…
You know the Cinderella story, right? I’d say that this one can be lumped in to that category. I mean, hot as hell professional hockey player, meets and falls for the college student working two jobs. Oh, and the evil. There’s definitely evil lurking around both of these characters. But the end result is pure love and amazeballs.
Miranda lives with her sister, goes to school part time and works two jobs in order to afford living. She absolutely hates her job at the hotel as a maid, but things start to look up one day when she’s tasked to clean the penthouse suites. Jake is the star professional hockey player, cocky, hot and has finally met his match when he’s surprised by Miranda cleaning his suite one morning. After an amusing conversation where Miranda totally calls Jake out on being…Jake, the relationship starts to blossom between the two.
There are a couple of issues that these two need to get through. One being a clingy girl who thinks she’s Jake’s girlfriend (obsess much) and a hotel boss that is a grade A piece of work. Trust comes in to play and true feelings are discovered. But in the end, love wins. Always.
