He’s ready to quit his pro-hockey career. She’s doing everything to keep her career afloat. And neither of them have time for distractions.
Jax Emerson, legendary forward for the Chicago Flyers, is ready to throw it all away when he uncovers the truth behind his NHL contract. The last thing he needs is more media attention, or his father to get involved in his contract, or a beautiful woman apologizing once again for an accident.
Meg Bailey didn’t think her life could get any worse, until it does. Time is running out before her business is forced to close. When Jax Emerson offers a solution, she knows that by accepting his help, she might be getting in too deep. And deep is not a place her heart is prepared to go.
I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to think about these hockey themed romances. But I LOVE them!
This one was a lot of fun, because the reader was already introduced to Jax, the main character in book 1, Faceoff. And the reader all ready knows a bit about Northbrook Hockey if they’ve read that one as well. You don’t have to read these in order if you don’t want to, but I would recommend it, it’ll just make more sense.
Anyway. I liked Jax. He’s a good guy. I thought the way he met Meg was clever. He walked out in front of her car. And she, feeling terrible that she hit him, bailed him out of the hospital early. Jax is the kind of guy that comes from money, but he doesn’t care at all about it. He lives in a modest home, drives a normal truck and is just a nice guy.
Meg is a young woman who is trying to make her small shop work in busy Chicago. She watches hockey, so she knows who Jax is. I loved the way she and her grandma would watch hockey together. And the way she didn’t want anyone to bail her out of trouble that she had caused herself.
I really liked the plot of this one. It kept me interested. I would say that this one has a few mild swear words. So just be aware of that.
I’m excited for more of these hockey books! I can’t wait to see who else will get their happily ever after.
