Warm up with this hot hockey romance NOW! The D-Man by Stephanie Julian is available now!Opposites attract…and ignite. On the ice, Justin Perry is always in control. As one of the Reading Redtails’ best defensemen, he plays with an intense focus and skates like he was born on blades. Off the ice, he’s content to keep his head down and his eyes on the prize: a spot on an NHL team. Except when Vivi Martin’s around. She’s bright, bold and beautiful and Justin can’t make himself look away. Vivi can’t help but notice Justin’s interest and, yeah, she’s not immune to his awkward charm or his grin that steals her breath. But falling for another athlete who will only leave and break her heart is the last thing she needs. Been there, done that. No t-shirt required. She’s too busy working three part-time jobs to make ends meet while figuring out how to use her passion for photography to build a career. Until Vivi gets a peek at what’s underneath Justin’s boy-scout exterior and discovers a tattooed hunk who rocks her world with a kiss. She’d be a fool to pass up a chance to get him in her bed....and in front of her camera. And Vivi’s no fool. But when a career-focused hockey player pursues a free spirit who’s built a fortress of ice around her bruised heart, Justin’s going to have to step up and take his best shot to break through Vivi’s walls...and hope it doesn’t shatter them both.

5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review
I’ve had the pleasure of reading a couple of Stephanie’s books now. I must say, every time I read a new story I fall further in love with her writing. I’m a sports romance junkie anyway, so The D-Man was right up my alley.
Justin is shy and focused on his dream. but Vivi might make him step outside his comfort zone. She might make him want other things. Vivi loves her photography and she loves the idea of having a man that supports her. But when Justin pushes to hard, it makes Vivi back away. I loved that Justin was so supportive, but he might have come on to strong with the support. In the same respect, Vivi might have taken offense to something that was harmless. I’m not telling you my opinion, because you can see both sides. What I will tell you is read this story.
You do not have to read the other books in this series to understand Justin and Vivi’s story. I love that. You can pick up anywhere in this series and know what is going on. But…it’s nice to have a little background information, so maybe start from the beginning. Please check out this awesome story.
