San Diego hockey team's PR director Elle Austin goes beyond the call of duty to keep their rebel captain in check—even playing nanny to his son!Max Beasley knows nothing about looking after a baby, so he enlists Elle's help after little Troy is left on his doorstep by his irresponsible ex.

Maybe it's the spirit of Christmas, or seeing Max's softer side, but Elle wishes he saw her as more than just an employee, and that they could give Troy the best gift of all—a family!

If you are looking for a sweet, warm-hearted Christmas Romance, this one tops the cake.  I had a great time watching Elle and Max get thrown together while trying to figure out how to handle Troy, Max's adorable toddler son who is dropped off by a babysitter when his irresponsible mother disappears.

Elle is supposed to be keeping the player's out of trouble, but this has thrust Max Beasley, bad boy of hockey, right into the spotlight.  So now Elle is put on babysitting duty and with that, Max duty, which she doesn't seem to mind as much as she thought she would, and Max doesn't seem to mind having her around either.

As these two fall for each other, and for baby Troy, what will happen when Troy's mother comes back into the picture, stirring up trouble for the new family?  Will Elle and Max admit to their feelings for each other, or will Max's ex be able to tear them apart for good?

This romance was a quick read, with characters that you will fall in love with.  I am a big fan of a good sports romance and I wouldn't mind Max Beasley under my Christmas tree this year.  So grab this one up, and enjoy with a mug of cocoa on one of those cold, winter nights!
