All wrapped up . . .
One more game. That's all that stands between NHL star Asher Westmore and a major career milestone. But then his brother bashes him against the hockey boards, sidelining him for months. Over Christmas holidays, no less. If staying off the ice doesn't drive him crazy, staying with his family will. The only bright spot amidst the mistletoe and twinkle lights: His best friend, Emma, is a physical therapist. And working out with her improves his body and his spirit.
One last time. Emma Callaway was in trouble the minute she and Asher added benefits to their friendship. How is she supposed to resist a funny, caring guy who makes her toes curl? Her heart was safe while he lived in a different state. Now that he's back home recuperating, though, it's only a matter of time before she blurts out her feelings. Emma's only hope is that with a little holiday magic, she'll get the best Christmas gift of all.
"With the perfect blend of hockey, heart, and heat, Maybe This Time is a winner!" -- USA Today bestselling author Debbie Mason
In Snow's latest Colorado Ice novel (after Maybe This Summer), a professional hockey player must come to terms with what is most important in life. Asher Westmore is nearing a career goal of playing 1,000 games, if only he can skate through the pain of a debilitating knee injury. When he visits home in Glenwood Falls, Colo., he enjoys celebrating Christmas with family and friends and reuniting with his best friend and lover, physical therapist Emma Callaway. Then his knee injury sidelines him and he turns to Emma for help, and Asher is forced to ask whether hockey matters more than pursuing romance with her. The attraction between Asher and Emma is always sensuous and intense, but Emma realizes that she wants romance as well as sex and also contemplates starting a graduate-level PT program in Florida. The romance of the Christmas holiday season is enhanced by the backdrop of small-town Colorado. The sweet, touching emotions will resonate with readers.

MAYBE THIS CHRISTMAS Jennifer Snow
Another fun visit to the land of hockey with the Westmore's! With the latest book in the series, we get Asher's story. He lives life in the fast lane, always giving hockey his all and always trying to keep up with his big brother Ben's accomplishments. He doesn't want to think of the future after hockey is over, he just wants to keep his head down and bust through every game. Emma is at a point where she wants more ... but she hasn't spoken up about it ... yet! This series is always a great read ... I liked them as a cute couple, but I didn't connect with them quite as much as previous books because they sort of kept themselves closed off even from each other in what they were thinking and feeling. Hoping there are more books coming in this series!
Asher Westmore lives and breathes hockey. He's on the verge of hitting a major career milestone with his New Jersey Devils team, and he's not going to let the aching knee that he's been ignoring for a year now get in his way. When his big brother and opponent brings a hard hit during the next to last game prior, it takes him out of the game and to the hospital ... with months of recovery on the table.
His best friend (with benefits!) Emma Callaway just so happens to live in his hometown and be a physical therapist, so he's looking forward to having her get him back on his skates quicker than the doctors are advising. Emma is on the cusp of changing up her life a bit herself, and she's happy to have some time with Ash to try to figure out where they are going in life ... she knows she's loved him for years and wants a future ... but she doesn't know if it's still just friendship and sex for him.
