Everytime I listen to this book I can't get enough of it or fail to laugh. Matthew is so lovable and adorable and the narrator does this book justice. From the turbulent begins of the relationship between Delores and Matthew through the whole ordel of going from first base, food poisoning to hanging out with MacKenzie, boxing and all the activities they get up to creates the best slow burn of a love they both don't see coming and I love it. The laughs are great. Emma chase never disappoints.

My life was perfect - from the outside, at least. Until I came home to find another woman straddling my longtime boyfriend. On my brand-new bedding. Now I'm back in Jetty Beach, the small town on the coast where I grew up, crashing at my parent's place. And life is looking pretty bleak. Except...Ryan Jacobsen.

I'm loving how mental illness is openly being talked about than ever before and this story shines a light on Depression so well. We get to see how things shifts, how a relationship is like when you have that monkey on your back. But the story telling is done so well I was really moved, when the hero is describing why he shoots Boudoir photos of women be it for anniversaries or just to spice things up at home, I could visualise it as was how supportive and relatable the herione is. She didn't know he had depression, didn't see the signs but she's there 100% and this is a learning curve for people who don't know about it. I'm grateful I stumbled on this book. Thanks.

Lily LeBlanc isn't versed in the art of casual sex, but after seven years in an on-again, off-again relationship, she's definitely willing to give it a shot. And who better to try it with than her best friend's boyfriend's best friend? What could possibly go wrong? NHL player Randy Ballistic lives up to his last name on the ice and in the bedroom. His best friend and teammate has recently given up the puck bunnies and traded them in for a real girlfriend. And she just happens to have a seriously feisty, extra-hot best friend on the rebound.

I loved this underdog sort of tale, these two weren't something I saw coming until she kissed him in the previous book and then the bathroom sex-capades ensue. Randy lives up to his name for sure but his emotional side and fears of being like his father roots the narrative well and so is Lily and the emotional trauma of having a boyfriend who manipulated her weaknesses and insecurities just tags at your heart and makes it a well rounded read and just so real.
Sometimes its good to have someone in your corner as you fight your demons and become your own person.

I'm NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance "Romance". I'm notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I'm a player on and off the ice. I'm the one women with no inhibitions want. Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don't know how to be any other way. I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does.

Gosh this book is soooo realistic abd so heartbreaking. Lance has been through the worst. not to mention the betrayal that came with Tasha learning about his past and using it against him.
From the moment Poppy mentioned knowing Lance when they were young had me rooting for her and boom, she was there when the team trainer called a favour for Lance. I was happy but this book had ne aprehensive all through not knowing when Tasha would strike. It's the closest I've come to understanding how intense it is being scared of your future daily due to trauma.
All through the series it build the potency of this book so well.

Randy Ballistic and Lily LeBlanc are head-over-heels, bed-breakingly, screaming orgasmically in love. But even they have their challenges, mostly outside of the bedroom.With the off-season coming to a close and the boys gearing up for training camp, one more weekend of fun is the perfect way to welcome the new season.The entire crew piles into vehicles and drives to Alex and Violet’s Chicago cottage for a few days of relaxation - and hopefully a chance for Randy to shake the anxiety that’s been plaguing him.

I swear Lily and Randy are just too intense but still real I can't get over them. I love how it clicked about the cover photo being based on a picture Randy takes.
And that scene where Lily gives Randy's dad her piece of mind, was fist-pumping and high fiving moment. Everyone needs soneone who can stand by them like that.

Being engaged to Alex Waters, team captain and the highest paid NHL player in the league, is awesome. How could it not be? In addition to being an amazing hockey player, he's an incurable romantic with an XL heart - and an XXL hockey stick in his pants. And he knows how to use it. Incredibly, orgasmically well. Alex is the whole package and more. Literally. Like his package is insane. Total world record holder material.

In all honesty, Violet is who we all want to be. Just plain honest be it loving your fiancé's mc or just talking about everything and accidentally oversharing with friends, its bound to happen.
How this couple navigate through the accident that hits Alex sideays and changes the dynamics for a whle is great, vulnerable and so real. fears arise, communication becomes even more honed and learning to love through highs and lows so shot gun weddings can be the cherry on top.
i just loved it so muuuch.

With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn't interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet's misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.

Violet and her over sharing, nonchalant and just somewhat blasé look at things about dating an ice hockey player again is the best thing, but of course life intervening in the form of Alex and his nerdy-jock ways had my wires crossed the best way. They fumbled through the romance, being on the spot light dynamics and if that locker room sex doesn't thaw the heart don't know what it, plus Alex's dick graduates from being called a 'sniffie' to 'monster cock' who stars in dreams wearing a cape with a moustache.
Violet's playfulness just makes every dork out there proud. own it.

Miller "Buck" Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed-up front teeth. After five years in the NHL, deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies, Miller has decided he's ready for a girlfriend. A real, nonbunny girlfriend to take on dates and not jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation. Miller thinks he's found that woman in his teammate's sister.

Oh 'Buck' I swear Butterson was giving me hives all through with the way he just kept accidentally walking into situations that painted him a negative light even when he didn't do anything wrong. plus I loved the nickname 'flash beaver', 'dick yeller', because sometimes we all forget names and your actions get you a real nice name 😂😂
sunshine could have been better in her judgement of the situation but through the book its easy to keep forgetting she's only 20 sonce this feels like a mid-twenties novel. But they came out shinning after going a little long without each other. The underpinning charity, Bucks dyslexia, his kum's early passing, do mane the story real and tangible and this story is just close to how bad things sometimes get whether we like it on not, with a side os poison ivy on your boobs if you have make up sex in the forest. Poor 'sunnys' little nipples. 😄😄

Bears and bunnies aren't supposed to mix, or that's what Chase keeps telling himself when his bouncy new neighbor won't stay out of his business - and his mind. However, the more he gets to know his overly perky neighbor, the more he craves her. It's a desire worse than his addiction to honey and pie.

The storyline was alright and the story flowed and I liked the intrigue woven through but jesuuuus what was with the weird gritted voice of Chase, I thought he was grumpy but the narrator would switch to smoother man voice like all parts of hero narrated by females but even Victors voice was that horribe.
it did pull me off from the narrative a little.
but overall I chose to hear the story and.not the voices but still. *wince*

This was short and sweet read and definitely a different take on magic nudging people to find love. lord knows these days some people can't find the one so going to another era might be the solution. It wasn't too heavy but it flowed and the characters fit into both worlds during the beginnings of the time travels to get to know each other *albeit not knowing what was happening*
