"I guess she’s working her way through the team one by one. It’d be faster just to have a gang bang.” Cody Burrell, defenseman for the Minneapolis Caribou, smirked at the ESPN reporter who’d just asked him how he felt about his ex-girlfriend dating one of his teammates.

My Thoughts on this:  Only takes about two words - Dead Man!  Anyone who would have this lack of respect for someone else's feelings and even for themselves to say something like this is without a doubt a king sized jerk and a moron to boot!  Clearly this is a man who wants to meet up with a frying pan upside the

My Friday 56 is also from One Man Advantage by Kelly Jamieson:

He had every intention of trying to convince her to spend the evening with him when they’d finished their condo shopping, but if that didn’t work out—like if she had another date, goddammit—he needed a plan B. He found himself arranging to meet a bunch of the guys at a downtown bar they assured him was a happening place.

My thoughts on this:  If you are really interested in a woman, why oh why would you go look to see what else is happening around town.  Yeah, I'm not too thrilled with this guy

After her ex trashes her reputation in front of the media and it quickly goes viral, Nicole vows she’ll never get involved with another hockey player. Too bad her job with the Minneapolis Caribou puts her in contact with sexy hockey players on a daily basis, including the newly traded center, Logan Heller.

Logan’s pretty sure Nicole is the perfect woman for him and he’s determined to have her—in and out of bed. Nicole is equally determined to never date another hockey player. But Logan has a one-man advantage…he knows what she really wants.

  1. I'm having the same thoughts as you... the guy sounds like a loser, but I bet there's more to it.

  2. Well, I would probably start throwing the book around because I'd want to slap the guy! But it's good to have an infuriating read once in a while! Thanks for sharing!
