The NHL’s been at my door since I was 18.
But I’d never leave the Swedish Hockey League—
Not while raising my little brother.
But now he’s grown and the Carolina Reapers show up with my greatest weakness:
Langley Pierce, their new head of PR.
I’ve never been able to say no to her.
She’s fierce, independent, and the sexiest woman I’ve ever met.
She also has a stubborn streak wider than my entire country.
One comment from her smart mouth about never dating again, and I propose.
No, really, I actually propose:
A six-month marriage contract in exchange for signing with the Reapers.
I want to date this woman so badly that I’m going to marry her first.
I’ll use each day to show her how a queen should be treated.
Our wedding day started a countdown I’m powerless to stop,
And the faster the months fly, the harder I fall.
She’s sworn she’ll never choose a man over her career,
And I promised never to ask her to.
Until I’m forced to.
How can we move forward when we started this whole thing backwards?
If I can’t convince her this marriage is anything but fake—
The next document we sign will crush us both.
Welcome to the Carolina Reapers, Samantha Whiskey’s newest hockey series where the chill of the ice meets sultry southern nights.

This was fabulous for my first ever book by this author, I will be coming back for more.
Axel is basically a Swedish hockey player, a very sought after one.
Axel was left as sole carer for his brother following his parents death, he takes family and his hockey seriously but now his brother is older and moving towards his own career Axel can now start thinking about himself after years of putting his brother first.
Langley is head of PR for an American hockey team that want him.
They have met each other before, Axel's childhood best friend plays for the same team Langley represents. After refusing to move no matter what figure they offer the club's òwner send in the big guns in the firm of Langley as they know he likes her.
Axel more than likes her, he has wanted Langley since he first laid eyes on her at a function.
Axel agrees to go only if Langley will marry him.
Langley does come across as shallow, I mean who wouldn't think that if a woman marries to help her career, she is very much a career-driven woman which may also give you the impression of her being cold but as the plot develops, as the chemistry begins to happen, this story turns out to quite swoon-worthy, heartwarming and hot!.
An enjoyable read, no spoilers to previous books in the series given and I'm looking forward to reading more from Samantha Whiskey.
