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

I received a complimentary ARC from in exchange for an honest review.
I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this wonderful, snarky, and funny book, Tomboy by Avery Flynn, book three in her Hartigan series. This book had me on an emotional journey as we followed Fallon and Zach’s love story. This amazing story pulls out all the stops.
These two exemplified the importance of honesty, trust, and love overcoming all obstacles. I loved how strong Fallon was and how she knew she was not a girlie-girl as well as a very caring, compassionate, control freak.
Zach learned from his parents not to trust others but that didn’t give them, as his managers, the right to rob him blind. When he discovered what they were doing, he paid them off, refused to ever see them again and worked hard to repay some of the money they borrowed in his name.
He was broke, not able to afford anything extra and embarrassed at his naivety. He became angry, frustrated, and afraid to make friends with his teammates. No wonder he couldn’t find love or that special someone.
After helping Zach recover from food poisoning, Fallon attends one of Zach’s hockey games. Zach’s playing turns around and Fallon becomes his “Lady Luck” with him needing her to continue to see him so the team would keep on winning.
Fallon attempts to help Zach learn how families truly support one another and how to trust that others can be trusted to help and support, not try to crush him. This story was filled with sarcasm, laughs, snark, and even some sexy scenes that made me wish it never ended.
Ms. Flynn wrote a wonderful and hysterical story that was moving and filled with sexual chemistry, wonderful dialogue, and endearing characters that should definitely not be missed. I highly recommend Tomboy to other readers and I am anxious for the next book in this series.
