Calle Stevens wasn’t what one would call a risk-taker.
She was steady. She was even. She was . . .
Oh God. How was she pregnant? Well, she knew the how part, but that wasn’t the point. Mistakes happened, condoms failed, birth control pills didn’t work, and . . . she was pregnant by a man who’d broken up with her via text and then readily offered to sign away his parental rights when she’d told him she was keeping the baby.
Her life was ruined.
She’d just been hired as an assistant coach for the professional hockey team, the San Francisco Gold. She didn’t have any family in the area, didn’t have a partner. How was she going to have a baby?
But then Cooper.
A star player for the team, he’d found out about the baby and had insisted on coming with her to her first appointment, then had held her hair back when she’d spent the majority of her time christening the porcelain goddess before coming to the second, and then the third, and the fourth and—
In fact, as much as she tried to push him away, he refused to keep his distance. And then when she was having a particularly weak moment, feeling fat and gross and completely unappealing, he held her like she was precious and . . . he kissed her.
Then didn’t stop.
Calle didn’t know what was scarier, the kiss or that she didn’t want him to stop either.
Unique sports romance
Now THIS was a nice change from the norm. A female hockey player turned NHL Assistant Coach. Not only that but a tiny one that is extremely intelligent and knows her hockey skills. It made her showing up the men on her team even better than expected. Hilarious even.
Coop...be still my heart. Everything a woman would want in a man. Not cocky or a player, all perfect including the audiobooks he listens to. 😉
A man that even when he has the woman still has the need to woo and take care of her. What is not to love about him!
This was the first book out of the series I picked up being as it was a freebie and I love it! Did not feel like I missed out but made me crave wanting to read the others.
There were two epilogues and the second one pretty much just opens up for the next book in the series. Leaves you with a tad bit on a hanger but not enough to be frustrating.
Overall I really loved this and I want more.
I loved Coasting! This is the 8th book in the Gold Hockey series but can be read as a stand alone. The author creates such an amazing story with fantastic characters. I liked the unique characters & the story line was fresh & really well written.
Can't wait to read more in this series & by this author.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
