    This is book #2, in the Madrona Island series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to understand the characters and the series better, I recommend reading this series in order. Alex AKA "Rush" is temporarily banished to an island to learn to calm down. His team is concerned that he cannot stop his partying ways. His drinking and playing around is catching up to him. Rosalind meets Alex for the first time when he comes into her bookstore. As a sheltered good girl, she does not recognize the Stanley Cup wining player. They clash and hate one another almost instantly. But there is still a serious attraction on both sides..... I enjoyed this story. From start to finish you felt the tension and heat between these two. I loved the banter and the fact that they truly had a lot in common once they took the time to find out. ***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review.

    Great Addition

    Book 2 in the Madrona Island spin off from Game On in Seattle and this is Alexander “Rush” Markov’s story. This like all the other books in this series can be read as a stand-alone but I’m sure once you pick up one of these stories you will want to learn more about these hot Seattle hockey players and their partners. Alex and his team have just won the Stanley Cup and that’s means and lots of partying and plenty of wild nights for the man nicknamed Rush but the team owners have other plans and if he wants to keep his contract he needs to spend a month on the remote Madrona Island. Rosalind Newcomb is the owner of the bookstore on the Island and on the face of it is the quintessential good girl but at times she gets lonely and finds herself wishing for that special man to arrive on the Island. Alex may be a swoon worthy hockey player but he also loves to read so the bookstore is his first point of call when he arrives on Madrona but when he disrupts the peace and quiet of her store its hate at first sight for the pretty store owner, will Alex be able to win her over.. Alex and Rosalind are meant to be and I found myself hoping and wishing for a HEA for this adorable couple but Alex is not a relationship man and Rosalind may not like the man he was before he met her so is it possible for love to win the day I guess you need to read the book to find that out. I love the chemistry this couple share, I love the banter and I love everything about Madrona Island and it’s residents who all seem to have a part to play in match making for the locals and team players from the Seattle Sockeyes. Looking forward to who’s next in this great series.

    Hockey lovers and book lovers

    This was, I believe, the second book of Jami's I've read. And honestly, an out of country hockey player who essentially taught himself English from reading books? My heart burst in heart eye emoticons. Rosalind is my ideal type of person I wish I was (except the not a fan of hockey part because I love hockey too much). I adored this book to pieces. It's one of the few that I've read that is 100% completely in the off season for hockey. Was definitely different than what I'm use to but not in a bad way different. As I said, I adored this book. If you like hockey players and bookish bookstore owners and lovely descriptions of the island it's set on. Which, not sure if the author knew this or not, but Madrona Island is a real island in Vancouver, British Columbia between mainland Vancouver and Vancouver Island. But I'm weird and like to look things up like that because it doesn't change my viewpoint on the book just makes me go "huh. interesting". But yeah, this will definitely become one of my re-reads.

    Worth adding to your summer TBR!

    **I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review** Alexander "Rush" Markov plays hockey for the Seattle Sockeyes and after finishing his most rewarding season yet, he's been partying hard. Probably a little too hard, at least that's the stance from team management. He's notorious for partying and liking women and when he starts making headlines, the team steps in. Alex is sent to Madrona Island and told that he needs to keep a low profile and clean up his act, otherwise he might be sent packing all the way off the team. Rosalind Newcomb is a Madrona Island native and she runs the book shop on the island. She's very much the good girl and she definitely is a romantic. She really wants that special someone in her life, but she hasn't found that person yet. When Alex finds his way into the bookshop to feed his joy of reading, Rosalind is immediately on the defensive because this handsome, alpha male is peaking her interest, yet he also drives her crazy. When an omission occurs, Roz throws walls up faster than you can say go. Will Alex be able to crumble the walls that Roz has built around her heart? And, will Roz be able to bring out the real Alex in the process? There is no doubt these two have chemistry and when they are able to get past their own insecurities, they are amazing together. It was great to see how they were able to bring out the best in one another. I wanted things to work for them as soon as the book started. This is definitely worth adding to your summer TBR pile!

    Page-turner

    I have been absolutely hooked to all of these Sockeyes players and their stories. I anticipate the next ones story after finishing each one and I just knew that Rush's was going to be good. In the small island town after getting in trouble with the Sockeyes for his behavior he comes across a bookstore and an owner that instantly has him attracted. One problem with that…she isn't falling for his charms. In fact it seems as if she can't stand him and the more the see each other the more the feeling is mutual except the attraction is still there. Alex is determined to win Rosalind over. The more time he spends around her the more he finds he likes her and the more it seems like he is breaking down her walls. The problem with all this is he hasn't been entirely truthful why he there. He also doesn't open up about his past so when things progress he may lose any chance he could have with her. The banter and chemistry between Alex and Rosalind is one that will have you sucked in. You will be hooked and eager to see how it will all play out. What happens when secrets are revealed? What happens when his exile is over? Will he go back to his party ways or will he finally admit that he has let someone mean more to him than he expected? You don't have to read the other books in this series to enjoy this book so don't let that keep you from opening this book. I highly recommend this one and the others as well. They are all really entertaining and enjoyable reads!
