He'll do whatever it takes to get her against the boards…

Sidelined by a potentially career-ending injury, the only thing hockey player Ryan Douglas should be thinking about is recovery. But after sharing a near death experience and a night of passion with a spunky brunette, the only thing on his mind is five and a half feet of sexy sarcasm. And he'll do whatever it takes to get her back in his bed--even if it means playing dirty.

Chloe Jacobs is done with fairytales. And men. She's kissed her share of frogs and what's it gotten her? Dumped by text--again. Determined to eighty-six illusions of romance and prove she's more than just a good-time girl, the last thing she needs is a pushy, arrogant hockey player testing her resolve. Especially one who's sinfully good with his hands and thinks date-by-blackmail is a perfectly acceptable social convention.

Ryan wants to play games? Fine by her, but this is one faceoff he's going to lose.

Hockey player Ryan Douglas’ career was almost ended by a serious injury and his life almost ended in a late night robbery where he met a feisty albeit tiny woman who gave as good as she got. A one night stand later and Ryan can’t forget about the pint sized woman who didn’t let him get away with anything.

Once Upon a Power Play had some really good moments and some really funny ones. I liked the plot, I liked the chemistry between Ryan and Chloe and the way they seemed to dance around one another when their sex-only relationship started to drift towards more serious territory. These two characters challenged each other in almost every way and it made them better and it made their relationship more fun and engaging to me. I certainly don’t like an over the top lovey dovey, sappy romance and this was no sap. It was sexy, it was dirty and it was entertaining as heck!

Chloe was a badass, taking charge when she needed to and when she figured out what game Ryan was playing she was in 100% willing and able to meet him head on and drive him just as crazy as he was driving her. She may have started out a magnet for losers and idiotic pick up lines but she ended up a woman who could stand up to an alpha male and give him a run for his money.

Ryan wasn't a typical jock. He was a smart guy who knew what he wanted and when he found himself falling for Chloe he was in it to win it! I loved his humor and his ways of letting Chloe know she was special to him. Athletes normally don't do it for me, but I think I can make an exception for Ryan.

My only complaint was that Chloe sometimes acted, thought and spoke like a modern day teenager and while that might be age appropriate for a 25 year old character, it doesn’t make for a good image of a mature, independent woman.

Final Verdict: Once Upon a Power Play didn’t take long to read because the story flows easily and best of all it was fun! Any yay for short girls too!
