He’s hockey’s golden boy, my new client, and the man I’ve avoided for the last nine years. I was hired to fix him—but he’s not the only one who’s broken.
Hawk Madden was my first love.
I thought he would be my forever.
But life wasn’t always fair.
And grief could be a cruel beast.
Fight or flight?
I’d always run.
But now he’s back in my life after all these years.
With one look.
Old feelings resurface.
Feelings that I thought I’d buried a long time ago.
Hawk Madden was my first love…
I just didn’t know that he’d be my last.
RELEASE DATE: June 23, 2022
Still new-ish author to me. I read Book #1 in this series and loved it. So I was looking forward to this because something about sports romances gets me going. That said I am sad to report that it started off rough for me. Something about me not being able to feel the connection between H&H. I get the idea that the heroine left the hero back in the day but their relationship starts of awkward for me. And I mean real awkward, like we still don’t know why she left him but the heroine makes it seem like the hero was in the wrong and so their interactions especially with the hero’s ex was so super awkward and I could have lived without it. I just did not pick up on all the spark between H&H that all the side characters were referring to. When i found out why she technically left and all, just wasn’t a good enough reason to feel sorry for her or empathize for her. Now I am at 35% and still no connection felt and now the heroine is going on a date as friends or whatever with her ex. *sad sigh* I really don’t like being here right now. Now I am all confused to be honest, I just….I made it to 75% and just honestly was not interested in reading more because it just kept getting worse for me. Once I do not like something or can connect to it, it’s best to let it be because this one just isn’t for me. I will be reading more by the author because I know I loved book 1 so maybe it’s just this book for me. What I enjoyed was the way he called her EVER MINE and at some moments I really just loved them together. I think the heroine here was very confused and it was very well written to that. It’s an adventure for both H&H trying to figure out life but wanting to be together. Very sweet moments and luckily the heroine has amazing sisters!
Again for anyone reading my review’s they are based on my feelings and my thoughts on the book, plot and characters. Doesn’t mean that you may not love it, I am simply implying how I felt about it. It’s a second-chance romance, sports, drama, angst and fun side characters. I really wanted to love this so so so much. *insert my sad face*
