I have a terrible habit of picking up a book in the middle of a series but just to clarify that…the books can be read as standalones I just pick the one that seems interesting to me. That’s how I came across Cage’s Misconduct…
SYNOPSIS: Dalton ‘Cage’ Booker is the number one goalie for the San Diego Scorpions. Most people describe him as willful and stubborn—sometimes even difficult to control. More often than not, words fly out of his mouth without the benefit of passing through his brain first. And women love him.
Karen LaGrange, little sister of the former enforcer for the Scorpions, lives in Canada, where she works with special needs children. After losing her job to downsizing, she makes an extended visit to San Diego, forming a friendship with the errant goalie.
Through frequent reminders that they are friends without benefits, Karen struggles to keep their relationship platonic, but the more she shuts him down, the more he wants her.
Can Cage convince Karen to slip under the sheets with him, or is he destined to be firmly entrapped in the friend zone?
REVIEW: Dual POV. Boy how I love it when a book is written this way…always a plus in my book. So anywho, Cage is all alpha male but with a soft side. He is, in my opinion, the typical sports star screwing anything with boobs. He says what’s on his mind and many times it’s not good. But it’s easy to fall in love with this goalie because deep down he has a heart of gold. Too bad the only person that sees it is his mortal enemy’s baby sister, Karen.
I liked Karen. She didn’t fall for Cage’s crap, even though she wanted to. You could tell she liked him but didn’t want to become one of many. She remained his friend and she could tell that is what he needed. It was good to see that even though there was mutual attraction the author didn’t go the insta-love route which is a plus.
We get thrown a curve ball 3/4 of a way through that was an interesting twist to building their relationship. Overall this was a pretty good read that I enjoyed. 4 stars for this sports driven romance

About the Author: I am a country girl at heart who tends to like the simple things…and hockey. Give me a hockey game and I’m set! During intermission, I read. Reading has always been a love of mine since I was a little girl. The books have gotten a bit spicier though. I also like moonlit walks on the beach, strawberries and champagne (ok, dirty martinis actually), and a strong man to hold me…etc., etc., etc. 😉
I live in Hammonton, NJ with my husband of over 18 years. It’s not always easy but it’s always worth it.
I have a B.S.B.A. in Human Resources and work for a law firm in Philadelphia. The only thing left to say is….GO FLYERS!
