I believed in the fairytale.
The "till death do us part" fantasy little girls grow up believing in.
Unfortunately for me, my happy ending was divorce, and learning to find myself all over again.
I was done with men and relationships, or so I thought, until a stubborn hockey player was determined to show me what love could really be.
But could I fall for the fairytale a second time, and trust that he would protect my heart?
From the moment I laid eyes on her, I knew she was made for me.
She was broken and I was determined to put her back together again.
I was here to prove she could have that fairytale love story after all.
To show her someone else can protect her heart and love her unconditionally.
Now I just have to convince her that someone is me.

“His words are like a balm to my fractured soul.”
Laura had known Mark for two years ever since he was traded to the Indianapolis Eagles, her family’s hockey team. She will always remember when they first met because she thought he was handsome, polite and a true gentleman. She finally agreed to go on a date with him because she was now in a place where she was ready to find love again and after the wonderful time they had at the charity event, she hoped this would be the start of something special. Being friends with Mark made it easier for her to trust her heart with him and she wanted to believe that she could have a second chance at love. Mark had been interested in Laura since the day he met her when he signed with the team. For the past two years he had been trying to convince Laura to go out with him, and she finally said yes!! He thought she was beautiful and loved her smile, her work ethic and her zest for life. He was excited about their first date and wanted everything to be perfect. This was his dream come true and if he was lucky, maybe Laura would feel the same way about him, and he wanted to prove to her that she could trust him and that his feelings were genuine. Sometimes your soulmate comes into your life when you aren’t ready to commit but over time, as you get to know each other, friendship grows into a love that is everlasting. Laura deserved a happy ending and Mark was the gold at the end of her rainbow. Samantha Lind has given us a romantic and heartfelt story that made me laugh, cry, and always wish for a happy ending.
Mark and Laura's story is book 4 of the Eagles series but definitely can be read as a standalone.
I was excited for Mark and Laura to get together. In the other books in this series, you've seen Mark's interest and pursuit from the other character's POV so I was hoping to finally get a first hand account of what that pursuit looked like.
After the prologue, the book fast forwards two years. Laura and Mark have established a friendship that eventually grows into something more. I would have loved to see more of what happened in the two years between the prologue and the first chapter. I didn't see or feel the friendship develop, I was only told that it did. I really like Mark and Laura but I wanted more conflict or more meat to their story that would have really invested me in their characters.
