Holly Thompson was struggling to get by. Between trying to pay her bills and taking care of her six-year-old niece, she worried if she’d have enough money for their next meal.
But when she saw an ad in the paper, she realized maybe there was light at the end of the tunnel.
Bryant Sommers was a hotshot NHL player. He had everything anyone could want, even though he had no one to share it with. And he was happy with that.
But he had to prove to his manager that he was committed in all aspects of his life—including being in a relationship.
That’s where Holly came in.
What started out as a business arrangement turned into so much more.
And now all he could think about was claiming Holly.
May be spoilers:
Claiming Holly has 13 chapters with an epilogue and is about Holly and Bryant.
Holly is raising her sister’s daughter as her own and she’s struggling. She just wants to make life a little easier for them.
Bryant is a hockey player and wants the captain’s position. His manager puts an ad in the paper for someone to help him pretend to be a family man.
Bryant is a jerk to her for a little bit as he falls for her right off the bat and doesn’t like feeling out of control.
He knows he’s going to claim her. She’s a little more hesitant.
She’s a virgin and I do believe he is too. At one point it says he’s never been with a woman, but in another spot it says he hasn’t been with anyone in 10 years. So, either way he’s not a manwhore at least.
Lots of steamy goodness.
Just a blip of a misunderstanding, but other than that this story was just them learning each other.
Good story, I thought.
No cheating-his mom cheated on his dad, no ow/om drama, few days separation.
Epilogue is 5 years out. They are happily married with 2 kids and pregnant with triplets.
Good read. Flows well, which makes for an easy read. I gave it 🌟🌟🌟🌟. Thanks for reading.
