From the best selling series, Something So comes the spin-off This
All my life, I’ve said I will never date a hockey player. I know
better because I’ve seen and lived it all. My father is a hockey god, my
brother is the captain of the most successful NHL team in the world, and my
brother-in-law also plays in the league. Their lives are complicated, so I went
in the opposite direction.
I fell in love with a scholar. But instead of proposing marriage,
he broke up with me.
Three months later, I saw his engagement picture on Instagram. I
couldn’t let him get away with that. No, it didn’t matter what, I was going to
make that man see that I did not need him.
I was in the running to pass my point record from last year, ready
to claim the number one spot in the league. On top of my game, I was riding my
career high wave.
Then, Hockey’s Princess, Zara Stone tweeted me. She wanted me to
crash her ex’s wedding.
The worst that could happen? A PR nightmare. The best? A fun night
with a beautiful woman.
It started out as a game—something I’m good at. Her crazy idea
twisted into something I wasn’t looking for, something neither of us wanted.
When push comes to shove, one thing runs through my mind:
When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers
flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals.
You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or
possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her
characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…
I seriously loved this book. I devoured this book. I read this book in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down. To say this story sucked me in would be an understatement. I loved everything about this book. Let me see if I can put my feelings into words.
Zara comes from a hockey family. She has no desire to ever date a hockey player. She thinks her boyfriend is about to purpose when instead he dumps her, Zara seeks revenge. To do that she needs the help of the NHL’s hottest hockey star. So she sends a tweet to Evan asking if he’d like to crash the wedding of her now ex. Evan replies right away. Things heat up from there. There are dates, hockey games, a trip, and encounters with her brother and brother-in-law that make this book not only cute but over the top fun. I think what I loved most about this story is that while it was a sports romance, it also felt like it was something that could happen in real life.
Ms. Madison did a fantastic job with this book and this story. I can’t wait to see what’s to come in the next book. Seeing that things are about to heat up in the organization, it should be a fun read.
