Opposites attract when a single dad and an ER nurse take a shot at finding true love in this heartwarming, heartfelt romance.
Griffin Sullivan is handling the ultimate balancing act. Between being a single dad to an active six-year-old and the crazy demands of his job as a hockey coach, finding love is not in the cards. But when the team's goalie is rushed to the ER, he's immediately captivated by the gorgeous, sassy nurse on duty... who just happens to be the sister of one his players.
Sadie Braddock has always had a big, open heart and a bit of a wild side. But since her dad got sick, she's closed herself off to life and love. Relationships are way too complicated--and so is Griffin. He's also funny and tender and sexy as hell. How can something that feels so right come at the worst time ever? Then again, someone to lean on may be exactly what they each need--if they're only brave enough to take the risk.

Finding Your Unicorn 🦄
When I found out that Sadie and Winnie (the other two members of "the sorority") were getting their own books, I could not wait to get my hands on them! Victoria Denault did not disappoint and I loved Sadie and Griffin’s emotional and heartfelt romance! Though this is book 3 in the San Francisco Thunder series, it can be read as a stand alone. I do highly recommend Score and Slammed, however, since they're amazing and because the characters from these books do appear in When It's Right.
I loved how honest Sadie and Griffin's story was. Yes, there is instalust right from the start, but the reality of their lives and the struggles they face are very realistic and significant. This book isn't just a love story between a man and woman. It's also a love story between parents and children, siblings, spouses, and friends. It's a story about timing and the joys and cruelty it can deliver. I think this is the most emotional and poignant book I have read by the author. Her heartbreaking and truthful portrayal of loss, grief, and mortality had me an emotional mess at times, but she balanced it so well with the sweet, sexy, and wonder of new love. Griffin was a fantastic hero and had me swooning and grinning like a fool! Unicorn indeed! ;)
It's no secret that I love the Braddock family, and honestly, I fall more in love with them after every book. I see pieces of my own family and childhood in them, but also things I strive for with my own children and husband. One of the best parts is the banter between the siblings, especially between Jude and Sadie. Those moments of levity kept the book from getting too heavy and had me laughing out loud. The Braddock's are definitely one of my favorite fictional families. I also loved the appearances by Jude, Zoey, Dixie, and Eli. That epilogue had me shrieking for my favorite goalie and his lady love! I honestly cannot wait to see how Winnie's story unfolds, but I also know there will be tears, as the Braddock's prepare for a final goodbye.
