It was a three-week fling. Nothing more than a couple of college kids having some fun, but then I did the stupid thing and fell for Jude Taylor quicker than he can score a goal on the ice. And after one beautiful night together, he left for the pros before I could make my first cup of coffee.
I thought I'd put him behind me. I thought I'd moved on. Then he hobbles into my physical therapy office and I realize how absolutely wrong I've been—there's no getting over Jude Taylor.
But now things are complicated. Jude lives half a country away and his career is in direct opposition to my need for stability. Most of all, getting involved with him could mean losing my job and everything I've worked so hard for.
Jude doesn't seem to mind one bit and he's all in. He might be a patient in my office, but he's no longer the patient guy I remember.
This time, he's playing to win, and the prize he's looking to score is me.
Safe Sports Romance!
I enjoyed this one. Sports romance can cause me a bit of anxiety at first only because they usually have heavy "other women" involvement due to overeager fans. I'm happy to say you do not get that in this book. In fact, I really like how much Jude was crushing on Katie, even years later after their first encounter. I felt like because of that, this was a fun romance even though they had a few obstacles to overcome.
I listened to the audiobook version of this and really enjoyed the narrators. It had both a male, and female narrator who showcased both POVs, and I love that. This gives us readers a look into both characters thoughts throughout the book. I definitely recommend this if you are looking for a fun, safe sports romance.
Such a sweet romance…Jude and Katie get a second chance

Katie is a Physical Therapist in Chicago, and of course, Jude shows up where Katie works for his treatment. But he is assigned to Logan. Katie is the girl he fell hard for while in college 5 years before, and he has never really gotten over her or the fact that she ghosted him when he left because he was drafted to play for the NC hockey team. Katie thought he got what he wanted and just left her the very morning after their first night together. Their relationship unfolds when they begin to really communicate. But there are barriers and issues that must be dealt with before they can move forward. These characters are easy to like, and readers are eager to find a happy ending. But can Jude and Katie find their happy ending? You’ll need to read their story to find out.
