Peyton McAdams doesn’t want a thing to do with Colt Patterson…except she has had a crush on him since they were little. Recently, they also had a nice little romp in the shower together. But Peyton thinks she’s just another notch in Colt’s belt and is determined NOT to fall in love. Love is just a game and it destroys people. She decides to focus solely on the new all natural soap store she’s opening with her sisters and NOT on Colt Patterson.

Colt Patterson is Willow Valley’s hometown hockey hero…or rather fallen hero. He is trying to make sense of his recently ruined life and his attraction to Peyton throws off his plans to wallow in his apartment, drinking away his sorrows. He finds himself drawn to her…and back to Willow Valley.
Can Colt and Peyton keep their fiery attraction to a dull roar and commit to just being friends or will the temptation be too strong to keep them apart?

“Lakeshore Legend” is the second in the “By The Lake” series, about the McAdams sisters, from author Shannyn Leah.

This book can be read as a stand alone, but for more enjoyment read them in the order of the series, as all the characters appear in future books. 

 
Lakeshore Legend by Shannyn Leah (By The Lake #2)

Lakeshore Legend (By The Lake, #2; The McAdams Sisters, #2)He’s back, a town legend, a tarnished hero, and the town is enchanted by his larger than life charm. Colt was once the boy next door and Peyton has always dreamed of being his girl, but people grow up and apart. He is now a notorious lady’s man and Peyton has become another notch on his bedpost, and the shame of it hurts, because she would do it again in a heartbeat, if only…

Holy hockey sticks! Shannyn Leah can create sizzling heat with her words while bring forth a tale of romance, misunderstandings and make it both heart wrenching and hysterical! Lakeshore Legend is pure reading bliss as two people fight the inevitable, but not without some major shock factors along the way.

How can Peyton face Colt knowing he has seen her, had her and probably thought nothing of it. But is the shallow persona of one of hockey’s greatest badboys just a ploy for the public to drool over? Is there more to Colt than his rep? Peyton has a shop to open with her sisters, she doesn’t have time for matters of the heart, especially when her heart longs for Colt, but under the playboy fa├žade lays a man with a caring heart and a heartbreaking lie in his past. He has no time for love either, but the girl next door is all grown up, prickly and soft at the same time, and she is all he could ever want, IF he wanted to risk another heartache.

Step right up and get your tickets for ice time with Colt and Peyton as they square off when the puck drops on love. Shannyn Leah’s style is a force to be reckoned with as she blends small town gossip and new beginnings for more than just Colt and Peyton! Enjoy the family closeness and plotting as another McAdams girl lines up the puck for the winning goal in love! Lots of great dialogue, snark and a few surprises along the way make this a delightful escape from reality and puts an entirely new spin on front load washers!

I received this copy from Shannyn Leah in exchange for my honest review.
