Drafted first round pick when I was seventeen, playing first line at eighteen, branded NHL’s bad boy at nineteen. At twenty-three I was cut from the team and living back home with my parents. A knock on the door brought an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. All I had to do was prove I learned from my mistakes, so no way would I fall for a chick with a pouty mouth even if I wanted to spend all day devouring it.
When my father gave me a job, I had no idea it would be to babysit some washed up NHL player. He wanted me to be his chaperone, his overpaid babysitter. I thought it was a joke. Then I met him, Matthew Grant. I wasn’t prepared for this particular bad boy. He’s not only hot but he’s arrogant and kinda sweet in a ‘you make me crazy’ kind of way.
Basically now that he’s finished screwing up his life, he’s decided to turn mine upside down.
She’s the first thing I’ve ever wanted more than hockey.
He’s the guy I know I should stay away from.
But what if this thing that started out so wrong turns into something so perfect?
I nod at him. It isn’t as bad as I thought and maybe me and my roommate will be each other’s wing man. “Your chaperone will be at your side each time you go out. Especially, game day and traveling. Of course you will each have your own room when traveling, but it will be connecting.”
“If you mess up even once, your contract is null and void,” Doug says, sitting down just as the door opens and I turn my head to stare at the person who just walked in.
“You?” I stand up, looking back at the other people at the table. The chick from the gym walks in, this time wearing black tight pants and a white button-down shirt, rolled up at the wrists. “Is this a joke?”
“I can assure you I had the same reaction when I was asked,” she says sternly. “I don’t want this any more than you do, but it is what it is.”
“She tried to pick me up yesterday.” I put my hands on my hips, telling the table.
“Are you insane?” she huffs out, her voice rising. “You and your anatomy landed on me.” She looks at Doug. “Right in my back.”
I roll my eyes at her.
“Karrie,” Doug says, looking at her.
“What?” She shrugs at him. “He couldn’t even contain himself, and he thinks I tried to pick him up.” She looks at me. “You wish.”
I pfft out. “Please, one word and you would have come home with me.” I look at the men in front of me. “You guys can’t be serious.” I then look back at Karrie. “Besides, how old is she? Twelve?”
“Pervert. I would have pulled the fire alarm and kicked you in the nuts.” She crosses her arms over her chest, making her tits strain against the buttons. “Either way you would have ended up in the same place. Alone. With bruised nuts.”
Robert slaps the table. “That’s enough, you two.” He looks at both of us. “Now, you two have a lot of catching up to do. I will forward you both the travel schedule.” He stands up, grabbing the papers, and slapping me on the shoulder. “Good to have you.”
Coach Dan gets up also, smirking at me while I stand here speechless that they allow a girl to chaperone me. Not just any girl, the hottest fucking girl I’ve ever set eyes on. I had to take care of myself three times since I stumbled on her.
“You two try not to kill each other.” Dan looks at Karrie. “Be good, sweetheart.” And he kisses her cheek.
“Really?” I throw my hands in the air. “Does no one think this is a ridiculous idea?” I look around the room and the only one left is Doug, who gets up.
“I think it’s the best thing to ever happen to you.” He walks over to squeeze my shoulder. “But if you make my little girl cry”—he leans in, whispering—“they won’t find your body.”
My mouth opens and closes, and then opens again, not a sound coming out.

Something So Perfect is hilariously sexy in all the right places!
I have been waiting for what feels like forever, but only has been a few months, for Matthew’s story! Ever since I finished Tempt The Boss I have had Matthew on my mind. I was intrigued by that small glimpse we got of his and Karrie’s relationship. Natasha Madison did not let me down! I have mad love for Matthew and Karrie!
If you’re looking for the perfect Alpha male look no further!
Matthew had it all and lost it all in the blink of an eye. He’s had the fame the fortune and the ability to call himself a member of the NHL. With fame came the puck bunnies and with fortune came partying. Now Matthew has reached his rock bottom. No one wants the liability that comes with his name. That is until he is picked up by the New York Stingers under the stipulation that he will have a chaperone following him around.
Karrie Cooney has worked her ass off for her degree so when her dad calls her into his office and tells her she will be chaperoning hot-shot hockey player Matthew Grant, to say she is upset about the ‘babysitting gig’ would be an understatement.
Matthew Grant is cocky on and off the ice. He knows what he wants and what he wants he always gets. That includes his new chaperone Karrie, who also happens to be his boss’s daughter. When it comes to Karrie, Matthew isn’t afraid of letting his inner Caveman shine. Karrie is a spitfire who tells it like it is and if she doesn’t like something she will definitely point it out. This dynamic makes for some extremely hilarious back and forth banter between the two main characters.
No matter how much Karrie pushes Matthew pulls harder.
I loved the fact that Karrie hates on Matthew’s alpha side and that hate only fuels the alpha high he’s riding throughout this novel.
Something So Perfect was everything I wanted from a Natasha Madison novel….and so much more!
Peace Love and Happy Reading,
