He's mastered the breakout play on the ice. She's still trying to break out of her shell.
When Adam first lays eyes on Ally in the dark, country-themed bar, he immediately knows that he's going to take that innocent-looking beauty home for the night. When she resists his charms and cheesy one-liners, he becomes even more determined to win her over.
After all, Adam Harris didn't make it onto the Dallas Comets' roster without hearing the word "no." No one believed he'd get drafted or play a game in the NHL, but he proved his critics all wrong. He knows that he's got to capitalize on his scoring chances because they don't come around very often.
Allison Forrester isn't as naïve as Adam thinks she is. She moved to Dallas looking for a new beginning, and she doesn't want to mess up her hard work by having a one-night fling with some wannabe hotshot hockey player—no matter how attractive he may be. However, Adam has never accepted "no" as an answer, and he plans to keep asking Ally out until she finally says "yes."
If they can set aside their differences for a night, maybe they can both break out of their ruts—and realize they have more in common than they thought.
Another amazing Jaymee Jacobs book!
Breakout Play is the third book in Jaymee Jacobs' Dallas Comets hockey series. This book features the guarded Ally, who meets Adam Harris, Comets playboy, through her best friend G. Nothing that Adam does seems to impress Ally, but when she finally lets down her guard, does Adam win her over?
I loved Ally from page 1. As an introvert myself, I could relate to Ally preferring her quiet, calm life and being wary of Adam's need to be the life of the party. As the story went on, I found myself falling for Adam's sweet and thoughtful side. Trust is never easy, especially given the circumstances in Ally's life, so I loved reading her journey of learning to trust and love the man who proved to be so much more than she thought he was.
I definitely recommend this book! Jaymee does a great job of writing lovable characters! I especially loved getting the "locker room banter" of chirping from the Comets team!
