Sunny Shelly’s Review: Dirty Swedish Player, by R.C. Stephens


Dirty Swedish Player is LIVE!! #OneClick today!!

NHL hockey star Nils Karlsson is dealing with the aftermath of a drunken mistake. A pic of his cock along with the #bigstick has gone viral.

The managers of his NHL hockey team have placed him on probation and told him to find a girlfriend and settle down, but he doesn’t want to give up on his wicked ways.

When his former stepsister reappears in his life, she’s a picture of beauty, innocence and brains. She hates his guts, but he makes her an offer she can’t refuse . . .

Broke and desperate, Sierra Cole believes bad things happen in threes. Now she’s waiting for the other shoe to drop, and it does, in the form of her former hotter-than-hell stepbrother.

She hates him with a passion, but she’s in a bind and he’s willing to pay her to be his fake girlfriend. Easy, right?


His kisses are scorching hot and he plays her body like a perfectly tuned violin. Too bad he isn’t relationship material.

Will the nerd score the dirty Swedish player, or will this fake relationship end in heartbreak?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

I’ve found that fake relationship stories can be hit or miss. And Dirty Swedish Player packs in a whole lot of tropes: stepbrother, previous relationship, hockey, wounded hero and bad boy. Yet somehow, it all gels together.

I really liked that Nils and Sierra’s story is set AFTER the first fake relationship they had in college. Aside from one flashback chapter, their story is set in current day, where she pretty much hates him and has gone out of her way to avoid him, even thought they have common friends. Sierra reluctantly agrees to help Nils clean up his act following a sex tape scandal by posing as his fake girlfriend, but when lines get blurred, will she be able to keep up her end of the bargain?

That flashback chapter filled in a lot of blanks, gave a lot of insight to why Nils did what he did, and why he is the way he is now. He had an abusive dad, and felt abandoned by his mom. Sierra had a controlling dad and was abandoned by her mom. These two came from some screwed-up childhoods, but were so perfect for one another. I really liked that the slow realization that he was catching feelings for Sierra all over again kind of threw Nils for a loop. I wish there could have been more groveling, because his come-to-Jesus moment fell a little flat in an otherwise entertaining book.

This book is part of the Big Stick series, and while it is a standalone, there are plenty of appearances from the other couples. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
