Hockey isn’t forever.
The money, excitement, and glory of being a professional hockey player meant more to me than a family, a home, and a forever. Another man has my forever, and I have hockey. I thought making the big bucks and playing against the best in the world would feel better than this. Instead I’m empty and hollow, like a big piece of my heart was hacked off. There's something missing. Something big. Something I can never get back.
I loved him, but he wasn’t the love of my life.
My husband died too young, too suddenly, too tragically. I was unprepared with no education, no job skills, and no future plans. When a DNA test reveals my twins' true parentage, I have no choice but to do the right thing. I turn to the one man who’d turned his back on me all those years ago.
I'd been shutout from his life, and I'd shut him out from mine. Can two strangers make a family? Do we have what it takes to forgive and move on?
Perfect start to series
What a great start to the new The Scoring Series from Jami Davenport and I have to say this book will certainly be appearing on my best reads of 2020....... I also have to say I finished this book a few days ago but I have really struggled to find the words to do this story and it’s characters justice. A shock discovery for the newly widowed Caroline leads her back to her childhood sweetheart but how do you tell the man who walked away from you that your 6 year old twins carry his DNA and how do you tell your children that the daddy they are grieving for was only their daddy in name, their birth father is actually Easton Black a NHL player...... More than one life gets turned upside down in this emotional roller coaster and I found myself at times thinking come on guys sort this out for the sake of your children but then I wondered how I would feel: if I had been left in this situation. Easton after the initial shock is ready to step up and be a father but will Caro let him and what will those adorable twins feel when their world comes crashing down once again.... This book has all the feels you want in a great read, it’s emotional, it’s a tear jerker and it’s got plenty of witty banter to cheer you up. This book captivated me it drew me in from the first page and that for me is a sign of a very special story, one I won’t forget and one I will read again and again. What’s next in this series who knows but I for one can’t wait, I highly recommend this book to all sports romance lovers as well as all romance lovers. One click this must read now !!!!
I was disappointed with the tone
The female character was supposed to fall at the feet of a demanding man as he had money and the means to make her life difficult? I really didn’t like the tone of the lead male in this book, he made decisions knowing it was what he wanted and on his agenda and the female was supposed to just fall in line? I had issues with this novel and couldn’t warm to either character.
Annoying female character
This wasn’t one of the author’s better novels, that’s for sure. The female character was beyond annoying with her attitude to pretty much everything. We were told that she had graduated high school one year early and earned a full academic scholarship, and yet she couldn’t work out who the father of her children was - despite some seriously major clues.
