As an NHL player, relationships haven’t been my thing. Shrouded in secrecy and speculation, they never last very long. But then that’s what happens when you require an NDA before the first date.
Until Charlene. She’s like a firefly. She’s elusive, and if you catch her she’ll burn bright, but keeping her trapped dulls her fire and dims her beauty.
I caught her. And as much as I might want to keep her, I’ll never put the lid on her jar. Not at the risk of losing her. So I've let her set the rules in our relationship.
But as long hidden secrets expose us both, I discover exactly how fragile Charlene is, and how much I need her.
We’re all broken. We’re all messed up. Some more than others. Me more than most.

**** 4 Star Review ***
I am not going to lie. I am not familiar with this series. I mean, I know that it exists, but I hadn't read any of the books in this series until now. Now I need to go back and read the others.
I will tell you right off the bat... this book is funny! I hadn't laughed like that in a while. I got dirty looks and eye rolls from my family a few times while I was reading this book.
I loved the characters in this story. I am pretty mad at myself for not reading any of the previous books in this series. I think I would have loved them even more had I read the others, but that didn't take away from me enjoying getting to know Charlene and Darren.
This book moved quickly for me. I started it, then next thing I knew, it was ending. Between the laughs, the ups and downs, and the laughs, I am not sure how I couldn't fall in love with this story. The author has done an extraordinary job at writing a sweet and entertaining story. It's definitely a book I will highly recommend.
