How exactly has one good deed landed me in the penalty box?

Tomboy, an all-new, sexy romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Avery Flynn, is available now!


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.

My review:

I loved this book! Fallon is a trauma nurse and one of seven siblings. Her best friend (and future sister in law) Lucy is PR rep of troubled hockey player Zach. Lucy is on her way out of town on vacation when Zach gets horribly sick, and instead of making Lucy cancel her trip Fallon begrudgingly agrees to go help him. She never thought a good deed would go viral in such a wrong way but it did.

Once Fallon and Zach stopped throwing up their armor at every conversation and allowed their vulnerabilities to show, they really had a meaningful connection. They have completely different backgrounds but have more in common than they expected. Both are quick to fight for and defend what – or who – they care about. Zach also needed to learn that he can let people care about him without expecting to get hurt. He had so much growth during this book.

Fallon was awesome, though. She is feisty and confident and can completely take care of herself. She also rides a skateboard (I’ve always wanted to but never could!) and literally saves lives on a daily basis.

This was a feel-good sports romance, and unlike the cliche in movies, the tomboy does NOT need the girly makeover to get the guy and succeed at life. And that is a much better message to put out into the world.

About Avery

AveryFlynn.jpgUSA Today bestselling romance author Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.

She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.

Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
