Tomboy (The Hartigans #3) by Avery Flynn
How exactly has one good deed landed me in the penalty box?
Ice Knights defenseman Zach Blackburn has come down with the flu, and my BFF—his PR manager—begs me to put my nursing degree to use and get him back to health. Of course she would call in a favor for the most hated man in Harbor City.
But when he’s finally on the mend and I’m sneaking out of his place, everything goes sideways. Paparazzi spot me and pictures, plus accusations that I slept with him, fly faster than a hockey puck.
At first, all of Harbor City wants my blood—or to give me a girlie-girl makeover. But then…the team finally wins a game. And now this fickle town wants me with the big jerk twenty-four seven.
Argh. I never slept with him the first time! But no one will listen. Then the grumpy bastard goes and promises to break his no-fan-appearances rule to help raise money for a free health clinic—but only if I’m rink-side at every game. That’s not a deal I can turn down.
But when the team keeps winning, and I realize there’s more to him than his bad reputation, suddenly remembering to keep my real hands off my fake date gets harder and harder to do.
‘Ugly’, Fluffy, Tomboy-ish… doesn’t matter, there’s someone who loves them regardless.
Zack has too much pride.
Fallon takes no shit.
Add in some humorous situations, tainted muffins, fantastically frenetic family lunches and you’ve got the story of Zack and Fallon.
Fallon will dent Zack’s ‘Most Hated Man in Harbor City’ rep.
Zack makes Fallon feel almost girly.
But Zack believes everyone has an agenda.
The internet trolls are vicious.
Zack’s parent’s behavior is criminal.
And it will be up to Fallon to shake Zack’s world up and show him not all people suck.
I had so much fun with this book. Fallon, her friends and her family will make you feel welcome.
You won’t want to say goodbye.
