Publisher's Summary

Rising star Zack Grantham has been stuck in a downward spiral of grief that has put his career on hold. Back on the road with the Carolina Cold Fury, still crippled by emotional baggage, and now a single dad, he's in need of some serious help with his son. But while the nerdy new nanny wins his son's heart, Zack isn't sure that he's ready for a woman's touch - even after getting a glimpse of the killer curves she's hiding under those baggy clothes.

Kate Francis usually keeps men like Zack at a distance. Though his athlete's body is honed to perfection, he refuses to move on with his life - and besides, he's her boss. Still, the sparks between them are undeniable, tempting Kate to turn their professional relationship into a personal one. But before she makes a power play for Zack's wounded heart, Kate will have to open him up again and show him that love is worth the fight.

Not as good as the first two books

The more I read, the more I Disliked Zack! I liked Kate at first, but the more I read, the more it ticked me off,because she was such a doormat for taking his crap. It ended OK but I would like to have seen him lighten up a lot sooner. I will probably just pass on Ryker's book.

I liked this one

better than the last one. Not a lot of grieving but there was guilt. Narration was better in this book than the last as well. I know they are the same but it could be that I liked Kate better than Olivia! Lol

Great listening!

This third audiobook in the Cold Fury hockey series was really well done. The hero, Zach, is still struggling with the loss of his long time girlfriend and mother of his son after a tragic accident. He has to hire a nanny for his son when it's time to return to practice and games. Zach's sister ends up choosing the nanny when he repeatedly puts it off and she's not what he expected. Kate, our heroine, is rather nerdy and frumpy (on purpose) and speaks her mind. At first they are wary around each other, but as time goes by their attraction gets harder to ignore. Can Zach heal enough to try to love again? Great narration!

Zack and Kate

This is an emotionally driven journey to go on with Zack and Kate. Zack is grieving and feeling a lot of guilt, in walks this quirky, bubbly woman that turns his world upside down. I teared up, laughed, and thoroughly enjoyed this story. I have listened to this story over and over, I can not grasp what it is that I love about it but I adore it. Cris Dukehart and Graham Halstead are outstanding in bringing this emotional story to life.

Zack and Kate

A very touching story. Fresh from college but ready to start her new life, Kate takes a job as a nanny for single dad Zack. Zack struggles with the guilt of surviving the crash that took him little boy's mother from them, which leads to an even bigger struggle with his feelings for the new nanny. Not all relationships blossom into forever love and sometimes a major life altering event can bring light to a dark life. This book had both. Cris Dukehart and Graham Halstead bring the emotions to life through their great narratives in this audiobook.

Zach was not a hero to me

I like this series a lot but man I could not get behind Zack. He was so cruel to her and she just let him walk all over her. I didn’t really buy their hea.

Swoons Zack!!

This is the third in the Cold Fury Series it’s Zack’s book. We’ve seen him in the previous books and he’s an important member of the Cold Fury. Unfortunately he suffers a tragic loss in the previous book. Gina his high school sweetheart is killed and now he’s left alone with his three year old Ben. Zack can’t seem to feel anything towards anyone or anything other than his love for his son. However with his schedule he needs help because he can’t do it alone. His sister helps him out for as long as she’s able but she must return to her own life meaning a live in nanny is his only option. His sister takes care of it all and Kate is her choice and nothing Zack was ready for she’s excellent at doing her job and at first Zack sees her as just his employee but along the way other hints of feelings start nothing like love or caring towards her but it’s something he can deny for a period before he finally breaks. Overall I loved the next piece of the series and it flows seamlessly and perfectly. Zack’s story is heartbreaking for what he’s lost and everything he now has to deal with as he finds his way back to the life he once had only a bit different. It’s another amazing story by the author and looking forward to the next! The narrators did a wonderful job of telling us the story.

Like it, but....

I’m really loving this series so far and liked Zack as much as the first two books. My only hang up is the fact that he falls in love with the nanny just four months after the death of his long term girlfriend and mother to his son. Four months is a REALLY short period of time in my opinion, so if just made me see the main characters in a different light.
