Maybe This Time
Starting over means a second chance . . .
Abigail Jansen is done with hockey . . . and hockey players. After leaving her two-timing NHL-star husband, Abby decides to start over in her hometown of Glenwood Falls, Colorado. There she doesn't have to deal with people gossiping behind her back or hear the word "hockey"---until her daughter tries out for the junior hockey team. Now Abby has to face her fears . . . and coach Jackson Westmore. He's tall, dark, handsome---and happens to hate her.
All through high school, talented hockey player Jackson Westmore had a crush on Abby, but he would never make a move on his best friend's girl. He gave her the cold shoulder out of self-preservation and worked out his frustrations on the ice. So when Abby returns, newly divorced and still sexy as hell, Jackson knows he's in trouble. Now even the best defensive skills might not keep him from losing his heart.
Between The Pages
Being a huge hockey fan, I couldn’t wait to read this this book, and I was not disappointed. The story was enjoyable from the first page and to the end. The small town setting and the hockey theme captivated my interest right away. There is a line in the book that reads Jackson Westmore is perfect, and that statement is spot-on. Jackson is the ultimate hero. He’s had a crush on Abby since elementary and he doesn’t waiver in those feelings, even when she married his best friend. The chemistry between Jackson and Abby is electric, which leads to a couple very steamy scenes. The story is packed with emotion and wonderful secondary characters. This is the second book in the author’s Colorado Ice series, which easily reads as a stand-alone. However, I enjoyed this story so much; I have to read the prequel where Becky, Jackson’s sister, finds love, because she quickly became one of my favourite characters. Then, it’s on to Jackson’s brother, Ben’s story. A must read series!
