About this deal

It soothes him in a way I can’t explain, though I understand, because I see the ways his shoulders relax, the crease in his forehead smoothing out.

There are SO MANY swoony, tender moments, which pair perfectly with the intensity of emotion and the delicious spice.I can’t find articles on diversity among the athletes in national leagues that cover the MLS (soccer), but the NHL is less diverse than the NBA, NFL and even the MLB. I’m also someone who also believes in either fully committing to a relationship or nothing at all, or just in general giving my 100 percent in anything like Olivia.

Devin was turning into a clone of his deadbeat lowlife father - fighting, getting wasted, and screwing his way through every girl in town.Olivia Parker is no different, because I've never had to work so hard in my life to obtain anything, especially a woman. Twelve years and too many pairs of stilettos later, Shaelyn Lawrence is back where she started: New Orleans. With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. The one thing I didn’t like was that the timeline of the entire book was less than a year, so some of the “life events that happened” seemed a bit unrealistic, but I didn’t even care because all of the other parts were great.

The story line was a typical romance novel mixed with adult romance erotica and then the average adult drama problems with insecurities of mixing nobodies with big time athletes. Eliza: Yes, that’s a big difference between Canada and the US and you have a good point about the authors. When she’s not staring blankly at her computer screen or deleting close to two hundred occurrences of the word just from her manuscript, she can be found teaching kindergarten (gasp! And these two roll with the punches, they slowly grow, they find the way to trust and they finally find their forever.I wanted to keep reading, finding excuses to do it and staying up too late – “just a few more pages” before closing my reader. But when his dog runs into Rosie Wells, a beautiful woman with a blush as pink as her hair, she doesn’t seem to have a clue who he is, and Adam seizes the opportunity as a chance to finally be himself. I do want to note that while MLB doesn’t have many Black players, around 30% are from Latin America, which is a far greater proportion than what you’ll find in the NFL/NBA/NHL and possibly more than MLS has, too. I didn’t expect to fall in love with all of the characters, the bonds formed between all of the characters, how much the characters and bonds grew throughout the story, and how the storyline had more than just hockey: it touched on death, grieving and loss of loved ones, forming unexpected friendships, trusting and learning to communicate with new people.

This book caught my attention when I heard that it revolved around a playboy, captain of a hockey team, and a sassy and fierce female lead who wasn’t easy for the taking. Therefore my focus was on ratings and game attendance in the US, which is where these leagues make the lion’s share of their profits (these profits being a big factor in what kind of salaries athletes can demand). If she’s mad at him then there’s no reason for her to hang out with him a couple of days later and act like everything’s cool. He’s arrogant, self-centered, and the man doesn’t seem to know what a filter is, let alone how to use one. When we were kids, we thought we were invincible, inseparable, that nothing or no one could come between us.Though she’s always been an avid reader and forever dreamt of becoming an author, Becka didn’t begin writing books until after the loss of her brother. Consider Me is the first book in the Playing for Keeps series, but it can be listened to as a standalone. Becka enjoys writing swoon-worthy romances with lovable and relatable characters, loads of humor, and a healthy dose of drama on the way to a happily ever after. He also keeps the ultrasound photos in his lap the whole time, shifting them from his right thigh to his left when I reach for them.
