Audrey doesn't want to be jelious of her sister and her beautiful day, she is just sad she hasn't found her Prince Charming, so she ends up drowning her sorrows so much so that when she wakes the next morning she isn't alone.

Tate Odder ,a Swede picked up by the Assassins from their farm team in Florida, is an amazing goalie and loves his new team family.

Audrey thinks she should just take a break from men after the mess with Levi, her ex that dumped her the day of the wedding, and Tate needs to prove that even though he is younger he is ready to make a commitment to Audrey.

This is a stand alone book and while you don't have to read books one and two to enjoy book three I would suggest that you do.

What can I say this book has it all its fantastic tale of romance, sex, love and happily ever afters and all the ups and down and work that goes into making that happily ever after happen. The main characters lives are intertwined with the secondary characters to the extent that you learn all about them as well. The story written in such a way you feel like you are part of the lives of Tate and Audrey. You cheer for them, ache for them, want to strangle them and Love them. We have ice melting hot sex, fights, make ups, misunderstandings and finally Audrey's Prince Charming and her happily ever after.

I give this book 5 cocktails I would add it to my bookshelf of books to re-read over and over again.
