Can a spirited, down-to-earth influencer get an uptight hockey player out of his shell?
I am a warrior. That’s been my motto since I recovered from a near-death accident when I was younger. Now I enjoy my nice, settled life in Dallas playing pro hockey—a boring life is better than being dead. I’m not a party guy or an adventurer; I like my routine and peace and quiet. So being traded to New York is the worst possible change that could happen. And meeting unfiltered and fascinating Sara Carrington throws my life into even more chaos.
I’ve been considered weird my whole life, which is why I’m still a virgin, but I’ve turned it into a career with my YouTube videos. Who knew people would love watching me talk about my zits, taste-test meatless burgers, and try to learn TikTok dances! Now I’m launching a podcast. Getting hockey star Josh Heller as a guest will help gain listeners for sure. I expect a bearded jock with no teeth and nothing to say, but I get a hot as H-E-double-hockey-sticks grouch with a surprisingly dirty mind. My mission to make him laugh is successful, but I want to know why he’s so uptight underneath that panty-dropping smile. Maybe I can teach Josh to have some fun . . . and maybe he can teach me a thing or two along the way. . . .

You had me at Hockey
I enjoy hockey stories but this story lacks depth and no follow thru on the games the romance. I found it lacking.
Sexy and entertaining with these like-able and endearing characters, I had a hard time putting this down. I laughed, I cried, and rooted for these two opposites. Captivated from the first page to the last I loved this heartwarming romance.
Josh and Sara are incredibly sweet together and I loved their chemistry. These two trying to figure each other out in the beginning is adorable. I was expecting this player of a man but who I got was incredibly closed off, due to a traumatic event in his youth. I loved his character development and his growth throughout the story. Watching his struggle was so endearing as his feelings for Sara developed. I liked Sara a lot she seemed to be very perceptive to his needs and was so forgiving and so real. I loved this story of healing and opening their heart and letting love in. It was totally enjoyable, a fun and sexy read.
Kelly Jamieson knows how to write sexy hockey sport romance that simply charms. Wonderful heroines. Lickable heroes. And romance that makes a girl swoon.
