Product Description

After getting her heart broken by a player again, Whitney Porter is done with men. She's focusing on her future career and her first assignment at the college newspaper: Posing as a sports writer for an exposé on the extra perks jocks receive. But Hudson Decker, the bad boy of the hockey team, is about to test her resolve. To keep herself from breaking her no-sex rule with the temptingly tattooed athlete, she decides to use him for a side project: Anatomy of a Player, to help Whitney—and women everywhere—spot a player, learn what makes him tick, and how to avoid falling for one.

With his life spiraling out of control, Hudson Decker's looking for a distraction. When his teammates bet him that he can't land the gorgeous but prickly new reporter, he accepts the challenge, boasting he'll have her in bed by the end of the semester. But Whitney is so much more than Hudson expected, and soon enough, he's in too deep. The last thing he needs is another complication, but staying away isn't an option. One thing's for certain: this girl totally throws him off his game.

Each book in the Taking Shots series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

So much love for Anatomy of a Player!

Anatomy of a Player was sweet, fun and romantic read.

I loved Whitney and Hudson together, they both made me laugh & swoon, you just can't help but love them.
They had a great connection and their chemistry was off the charts! They were truly perfect for each other.

Anatomy of a Player is a great addition to the Taking Shot series, can't wait to read Dane's book next.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down - so good. 28 January 2016
By mountainreader - Published on Amazon.com

The 2nd book in Cindi Madsen's hockey series was just as good as the first! After being played again and again, Whitney's giving up on men, but she didn't count on Hudson. Between their chemistry and their fun back and forth, I could definitely see why he tested her resolve. This book had a lot of funny moments and Hudson and Whitney's interactions just got better and better. I was happy to see Lyla and Beck again, and I loved the friendship between Whitney and Lyla. The ending totally left me with a smile on my face and I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun college romance 14 February 2016

>Book Review – Anatomy of a Player –

>I am an independent reviewer. This is the second book in the “Taking Shots” series and ends with an HEA.

>I just happened upon this book and I am sure glad I did. I enjoyed the switch in point of view between Hudson and Whitney. The story was a lot more fun to read getting into both of their heads. The story itself seemed as if it had been written before; athlete man whore falls for a good girl. The twists here are that the good girl is really a party girl trying to hide her hotness in order to be taken seriously. Hudson is the king of one-night stands.

> Whitney decides to take her career choice seriously and wants to do an expose on the way athletes are given preferential treatment in college. She chooses the hockey team as her starting point. Whitney comes across as a caricature of a news reporter. She is rude and asks insulting questions. I get why she wanted the team to take her seriously, so she dresses dowdy, but she didn’t come across as a real journalist.

>Looking past that issue, the relationship between Hudson and Whitney was cute to watch. The little bit of alpha that Hudson showed was enough to get your swoon on.

>This book is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving the book 4 stars.

Anatomy of a Player was pretty funny. Hudson is a hockey player that is overload with college and a horrid home situation. He doesn’t really have time to have a girlfriend so mostly sticks to hook ups. Whitney Porter is really frustrated with the attitude of college guys that just want to hop in the sack but avoid anything deeper. Even though Whitney knows nothing of hockey she takes on being a sports journalist for the college paper, mostly so she can expose what privileged jerks athletes are, only it’s not really that simple. There is quite a bit of angst in this story but it’s still a lighthearted quick read. Hudson was really sweet even though he’s drowning in life. There are times you kind of want to strangle Whitney but it works out in the end with the HEA. Another weekend or beach read that’s not a new type of story but still fun to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book!! 10 February 2016
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com

Maybe this book is just a little predictable, however, for me that's not always a bad thing. I was a big fan of Getting Lucky Number 7, so it was a no-brainer that I was going to read this book. I really liked that we had a little time to get to know Hudson and Whitney before things became too serious or physical between the two. The most predictable thing to me was that when I got to the end of this book, there would be a happy ending. I think any fan of YA romance will enjoy this book.

This was a really good book about Whitney and Hudson. They seemed like an unlikely pair. I really enjoyed Whitney's wit and her comebacks to Hudson when she was feeling snarky. You really got a good background on these two so you knew where they both were coming from and what had happened with them.
