After getting her heart broken by a player again, Whitney Porter is done with men. She’s focusing on her future career and her first assignment at the college newspaper: Posing as a sports writer for an exposé on the extra perks jocks receive. But Hudson Decker, the bad boy of the hockey team, is about to test her resolve. To keep herself from breaking her no-sex rule with the temptingly tattooed athlete, she decides to use him for a side project: Anatomy of a Player, to help Whitney—and women everywhere—spot a player, learn what makes him tick, and how to avoid falling for one.
With his life spiraling out of control, Hudson Decker’s looking for a distraction. When his teammates bet him that he can’t land the gorgeous but prickly new reporter, he accepts the challenge, boasting he’ll have her in bed by the end of the semester. But Whitney is so much more than Hudson expected, and soon enough, he’s in too deep. The last thing he needs is another complication, but staying away isn’t an option. One thing’s for certain: this girl totally throws him off his game.
First I like to say that Cindi Madsen has become one of my got to authors. I truly enjoy her books. I can’t remember reading a book by her that I didn’t like.
That being said, if there is a chance to read her book I will jump at it and I was super stocked, that I got this book for review as well.
This is the second Book in the “Taking Shots” series, I read and loved the first one. This book was no different.
It is funny, romantic, sexy and has a great plot. The characters are great and have a good backstory. The both had a difficult childhood, while very different, the still the same in a way.
Both have very clear goals for that future and trying to archive that, with that the games begin.
Whitney, who we met in the first book being Lyla’s roommate wants to become a reporter but she was distracted with guys that she got a little of track. To get back on track she gets a job at the college paper that want her to write an article about how the athletes get better benefits and being favorite over non-athletes. The usually peppy Whitney goes undercover as a serious sport reporter who by the way has no clue about Hockey. When she meets Hudson she thinks he is the perfect candidate to write and other article about players, how they are and work to seal the deal with a girl.
Hudson is your typical college jock, he is a player and doesn’t even thing about being in a relationship. But when he is being challenged by his teammates to get the “uptight” reporter girl, he chew off more than her thought. He realizes fairly quick that she is different for him but with the “lie” in full swing there is no way but forward for him.
Both of them lying to each other about their motives but yet they get a long great, Better than great.
It was another great read that I enjoyed very much by Cindi Madsen. It was funny, heartbreaking at times, swoon worthy and sometimes steamy smexy.
I really hope we get to read about Dane in of other the future “Taking Shots” books.
Overall great read and rate it at 4 ½ ★
