Review: Once Upon a Power Play  (Risky Business #2) by Jennifer Bonds

A sexy category romance from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

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.

Ryan and Chloe end up at the wrong place at the wrong time. Both having an exceptionally crappy day, which gets worse when they find themselves in the middle of a robbery. When Ryan tries to disarm the robber, Chloe helps out with her handbag. Chloe is a firecracker and after walking her home, he didn’t expect them to end up working off their stress with an all-out one night sex-fest! They both needed an outlet and figured they would never see each other again. What’s the harm, right? Wrong! Chloe is assigned to the publicity team for a charity involving the NHL caption of the New York Rangers-who happens to be Mr. one night stand, Ryan! With their sexual attraction zipping through them, Ryan decides to use this opportunity to get closer to Chloe. Chloe, however, doesn’t want to date anybody least of all an athlete!

Chloe’s man-hating vibes and snarky attitude, only push Ryan to try harder. Before you know it, Ryan and Chloe are knee-deep in an affair. They cannot keep their hands off each other. Even though they both have concerns, they cannot seem to stop! Their sex is sizzling and he is slowly wearing down Chloe’s walls, as well as his own.

Unfortunately, being a star athlete has its perks and perils. Paparazzi are unyielding. When pictures surface of Ryan with his ex, Chloe berates herself for being duped. It was too good to be true. This always happens to her. Gosh was he just playing her? Can she ever trust Ryan again?

Once Upon a Power Play was a sexy, romantic read! I was roped in from the start and it rolled right along! Ryan and Chloe’s chemistry leapt from the pages and kept me firmly engaged. I am a fan of the dual point of view as I love being in both characters’ heads! If you love those romantic reads with sexy bantering, angst, and steamy scenes, then look no further, this is your next read!
