Publisher's Summary

Single dad and hockey star, Calder Weiss has put his love life on the back burner for the past five years, raising his daughter and keeping up with the demands of his profession. But all that changes the minute Rachel Perry runs into him in the most unlikely of places, right outside the men's bathroom. 

Vibrant and enchanting, she captures his attention, making it impossible for him to walk away without scoring her number. Their connection is immediate, their attraction palpable, and their relationship undeniable. 

But Rachel isn't the only girl in Calder's life, which scares him, because Calder's daughter already lost her mother. He doesn't want Shea to lose someone close to her again, making Rachel's task of breaking through Calder's wall that much more difficult.

Wow

Just loved this quick romance. The banter between characters kept their story light and freaky. A great read. Audio was fantastic.

Average

I found this book to be average. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good. Maybe if it were a bit longer and we could get a little more character development it would be better. I did like the characters in the book and it was a little on the funny side in places. I'm not disappointed that I listened to it.

Short and Sweet

A short, sweet, and sexy story. Calder and Rachel are cute together, their chemistry is undeniable. It’s not all sunshine and roses, but their journey was enjoyable. I liked this novella.

My bad; overall a 2.75

My overall score and story score are both more like 2.75.
I chose poorly. I thought the book would be cuter than it was, based on the book excerpt. The author tried to be cute, but it didn't work for me. I really didn't enjoy the texting between Rachel & Calder. I already didn't like listening to text messages, but then it included the phone messaging sound too. I thought there would be a greater part for Calder's daughter. But his 5 yr old daughter, Shay, had a very small role, rarely seen even though she lived with her dad. Her small parts had her sounding older than 5 & included her asking Rachel if her dad is a good kisser. Really?!
The story wasn't all wine and roses; there was a bit of conflict. It was reasonable & not manufactured, thankfully.
The male narrator can't do cutesy bc his voice is too deep. I preferred the female narrator as both Rachel, the kindergarten school teacher, and Calder Weiss, the star shortstop for a Colorado hockey team.
There weren't many aspects of the story that I enjoyed. But I can say that it was good that the attraction between Calder & Rachel seemed real. And the short book didn't focus on hockey; there was 1 short game w/ little detail. Rachel & Calder jumped into bed quickly. The one scene was hot. There was more sex talk.
Still, w/ the few pluses, my overall experience is closer to the negative part of the evaluation spectrum.
