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.

Jude and Katie
Jude Taylor is a NHL hockey player who’s career is on the line. Jude comes from a family deeply embedded in hockey. He even plays alongside his brother, until that fateful evening when Jude is injured. Jude suffered a debilitating concussion and a torn ACL. He’s not taking it well and can only think the worst. HIs coach decides Jude needs a change of scenery and sends him home to rehab, hopeful his attitude will change.
Katie is a physical therapist who has a history with Jude. She keeps up with his career and knows he has a long recovery ahead, but never dreamed he’d walk into the place she works. Katie knew Jude in college, before he became famous. The day Jude signed a contract as a NHL player, was the day Katie let Jude and her dreams go. Katie blocked Jude’s number and never spoke to him again. Katie loved him so much, that she let him go. She thought she would only hold him back.
I really enjoyed this second chance romance. Katie’s selfless acts enabled Jude to concentrate on his career and become the player she knew he could be. Katie also wanted stability after growing up living a gypsy-like life. Katie worked hard to earn her PT degree and worked with some of the best rehab specialist in the country. It took a leap of faith and Jude’s love to enable Katie to take a chance at love. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
You ever read two characters meeting on the page and you're just like... yes, I'm here for it and they better be here for it too? That's exactly how I felt about Jude and Katie.
Second chance is totally my catnip and this one checked all the boxes. This book has me super excited for this series. I love Jude and Katie but I also fell in love with their friends. I can't wait to see who gets their HEA next!!

However, Jude is back struggling to come to terms with a sudden change to his career. He makes it clear that he still wants Kate, she is frightened to trust in Jude and upend the stable life she has built for herself.

Also, intertwined in the story is a varied cast of supporting characters(Jude’s parents are the best!) that really enhance the story.
