Release Date: February 7, 2020
In the game of love, winning is harder than it looks.
River Baldwin is sexy as puck.
Carved abs, strong muscles.
His talent with his hockey stick elevates him to godlike status.
He’s also in trouble.
The center for the Brooklyn Cobras has a PR crisis only I can solve.
But he’s arrogant, stubborn, and used to getting his way—all things that make my job harder.
His attitude should drive me away, but instead, attraction sizzles between us.
Somehow, while I try to salvage his image, I fail to defend my heart.
Can I risk letting the cocky player who dominates the game into my heart?
Or are the moves River is using on and off the ice going to leave me defenseless and alone?
Defenseless Hearts is the second book in the Playing for Keeps series which can be read as a standalone or as the second book in the Playing for Keeps series. Defenseless Hearts is told in the first-person point of view of the hero and heroine and is a workplace, sports romance.
River is an up and coming hockey player who is loving the party lifestyle and living up to his bad-boy image until a party lands him in a public relations nightmare and he is assigned a PR representative which he does not feel like he needs a babysitter until Samantha walks in a changes River’s life. After a bad break up last Valentine’s Day, Samantha has given up on love and sworn she will never date another client until her heart has a different mind of its own when she meets River Baldwin.
I was excited to meet River after being introduced into him in his brother Hudson’s book Intercepted Hearts. River is fun and carefree and I love how he managed to get Sam to break out of her break up a slump. I can not wait to read more novels by Mika Jolie.
