A second chance may be just what James Steele needs....
I might be one of the older players on the Arizona Vengeance, but I like to think that also makes me one of the wisest. Or at least I used to.
Turns out, I’ve been a bit selfish. I’ve been married to hockey and my team for years, which hasn’t left much time for my actual wife, Ella. Now I’m juggling a separation I never wanted, the pressure of being a single dad to our teenage daughter, and the career I sacrificed it all for.
While my game on the ice might be on fire, the game in my personal life is clearly lacking, as evidenced by the fact I just saw my wife on a date with another man. If I have any hope of saving the family I love, I need to reprioritize, and fast. So it’s time for me to get back to fundamentals, just like I did when I learned how to play hockey. I’ve never backed down from a challenge, and romancing my wife is a challenge I am very much looking forward to.
Time to put on my game face, because I’m in it to win it.

This was such a great second chance story. It felt like it was real life. She's trying to date again. He's jealous of the new boyfriend. Their daughter is giving them grief and sass. Yeah, real life.
Will Steele be able to win Ella back? Will she want him back? Will Lucy accept whatever the outcome is? And will she get a puppy?
I love how his teammates had his back and how the wives and girlfriends had Ella'a back and engaged with her even though she and Steele were not back together. I think the thing I liked the most was watching Ella reflect on why she felt the way she did and come to the realization she did. That's a hard thing to do and she did it and admitted to her concerns.
This was my first Brian Pallino and Jill Redfield narration. They are good combination and I truly enjoyed listening to them.
I’m a sucker for a second chance storyline and I really enjoyed this one. Steele and Ella have all the chemistry. Add in an alpha male that doesn’t give up and I’m sold. The narration added an elevated element to this book. Absolutely worth the listen.

Steele and Ella's story is seriously my favorite story thus far. This story is about a man wanting and fighting for a second chance with his wife. This story is filled with love right out of the gate. They are obviously in love with each other but are needing more than they have in their marriage. This is how they get there. Such a great story!
