I'm called America's sweetheart.
They say I have the voice of an angel.
I almost gave all that up, thanks to a traumatic experience at the start of my career. Instead of letting it define me, I chose to rise above. I showed everyone what a woman on a mission could accomplish, and now I'm living my dream.
After one chance meeting, my entire world changes. Austin is every woman's fantasy, and he wants me. While the attraction is there for me as well, I don't need any distractions right now.
I'm the man I am today because I never let the idea of settling down disrupt being the best I can during my hockey career.
But then Reese floats into my life and everything changes, and now all I want to do is pin her against the boards.
They say opposites attract. You can't get more opposite than Country Music's hottest female singer and a hockey player from Canada. With competing travel schedules, our instant attraction appears to be doomed from the start. Can it really be love? Or is it just a hot ice-melting fling?

“I feel like I’ve known you forever.”
Falling in love doesn’t follow any rules and is never easy but sometimes, with just one glance, you know when you have met your soulmate. That is what happened to Reese and Austin; she was a busy country singer and he was a talented hockey player. From the moment they met, their connection was intense and could not be ignored. Reese didn’t have to think twice when Austin asked her out after one of her concerts. He knew immediately that he wanted to spend as much time with her as he could until their busy lives got in the way. They were a hard working couple who were always positive, loved a challenge and never gave up. Over time, even when they were apart, they got to know each other better and their friendship turned into so much more. Reese was a survivor who filled his life with joy and he couldn’t picture his life without her. He was confident that he could make her happy despite his dedication to his career. Reese had a hard time trusting people and she desperately wanted to believe that Austin was the one for her. He was sweet, thoughtful, and understanding and in her heart, she hoped they would be together forever. Will their long distance separations cause the light to dim on their bright future? Samantha Lind has given us another romantic story that gives us hope that love can survive regardless of any obstacles. Reese and Austin had more in common than they even realized and this gave them a strong foundation with which to build a future. Their journey was filled with music, hockey and laughter and I enjoyed reading such a positive and uplifting story.
Reese and Austin meet after her concert in Indianapolis. They then embark on a long-distance relationship until they can be in the same place at the same time.
There was a lot of telling about the connection and relationship between them but I didn't feel it. Once they got together, I didn't feel like there was anything left to the story. I'm down for books with low drama but when there's none, I just skim to get to the end. I wanted something to happen in the second half of the book but it really never came for me.

Against the Boards
I enjoyed this whole series of books about the Indianapolis Eagles. Each book kept you wanting more. I wish there were more books in that series.
