Welcome to Fort Lauderdale—where the days are hot and the Knights are hotter…
I might be at the top of my game, but a fresh start feels like the right move at this stage of my career. Joining the Lauderdale Knights has been a great decision, and I’m ready to win this city over.
On opening night the crowd goes wild… and so does my slap shot. Knocking a fan unconscious wasn’t the introduction I envisioned. Especially when I lay eyes on my gorgeous victim. Problem is… she’s engaged.
Waking up with a concussion and amnesia has made me realize that when it comes to living life on my terms, it’s now or never. My big Italian family means well, but it’s time for them to stop calling the shots.
Now if I could just get rid of my fiancé, quit my job, and stop drooling over the hottie hockey player who knocked some sense into me, life would be perfect. Except nothing in my life is perfect… not even Lauderdale’s newest MVP.
Equal time for the leads - hallelujah!
Not going to name the author, but I’d just finished part of another hockey series and couldn’t bring myself to read another chapter in it. So I bought this book - the only one of Kate’s books that I hadn’t read.
What a glorious afternoon of reading! I particularly loved that the families were believable. Their occupations, and it was also nice to see solutions that didn’t take our hero’s millions to fix.
The heroine’s business got a nice bump from knowing team families, but that’s reality. Loved that she and her mom ran the numbers! Most of all, adored that the character focus was on the people rather than their wardrobes.
And as noted in the headline…Kat gives equal time to her leading men/women. I love that. The men are believably snarky, imperfect, and wonderful. 💗💗💗
A new team, a new town
A new expansion team has come to Ft. Lauderdale and in their first game, hockey fan Juliet is knocked out by a flying puck. Hockey star Vaughn was the player that hit the puck and in the interest of good public relations, the team asks him to visit the woman that was in the hospital. Instant chemistry but Juliet has amnesia and mistakenly thinks he’s her fiance’. Great story with Juliet having to turn a page in her life — an overbearing Italian family that works together and thinks they know best for her, a lonely hockey player and both of them finding a new way. I loved the characters. Juliet really grew and changed. She took the chance to finally become herself and Vaughn, who was lonely found a family. Ups and downs and a great HEA. Looking forward to more from the Knights.
