A brooding hockey hunk learns to embrace life—and love—from a single mom who takes the world one puck at a time.Big move . . . Jodie’s motto is “Don’t wait for the perfect moment—take the moment and make it perfect.” And that’s just what she decides to do when she moves to Chicago with her two-year-old daughter. Now all Jodie needs is a place to live, and her best friend’s boyfriend has just the answer.
Big stick . . . Nick Balachov has zero interest in socializing, partying, or flirting right now. It’s not that he doesn’t like women. He loves them. It’s just that hockey, casual hookups, and hanging out at home are enough for him these days. Now Nick has a big problem—because the woman living in his empty coach house is a major distraction.
Big deal? The more Nick tries to keep his distance, the more Jodie needs him—around the house, that is. First he helps with the snowstorm, then the power outage. Nick even finds himself trying to impress her little girl. What the hell is wrong with him? Jodie represents everything Nick doesn’t want. But maybe she’s just what he needs. . . .

5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review
I want to start off by saying, I love any book where the heroine’s name is Jodie. I know it’s not spelled the same, but you get the point. I’m kidding…or am I? In all honesty, I loved this story! Jodie and Nick were everything I hoped they would be and so much more. I love the Aces series and it’s great to see some of our old friend.
I love Nick. I love that he’s grumpy and wants to be left alone. It’s not often that you see that. Most of the time the guys is out looking for anything that walks. Not Nick. Jodie is an amazing mom. She loves her little girl and really isn’t look for anything. But these two have chemistry in spades. I loved watching these two fall. It made me happy to see how involved Nick was with Zyana.
I loved every single second of this book. Kelly Jamieson did an amazing job with this story. I loved every second of it and can’t wait to see what’s to come.
