A brooding hockey hunk learns to embrace life—and love—from a single mom who takes the world one puck at a time.

Big move . . . Jodie's motto is "Don't wait for the perfect moment - take the moment and make it perfect." And that's just what she decides to do when she moves to Chicago with her two-year-old daughter. Now all Jodie needs is a place to live, and her best friend's boyfriend has just the answer.

Big stick . . . Nick Balachov has zero interest in socializing, partying, or flirting right now. It's not that he doesn't like women. He loves them. It's just that hockey, casual hookups, and hanging out at home are enough for him these days. Now Nick has a big problem - because the woman living in his empty coach house is a major distraction.

Big deal? The more Nick tries to keep his distance, the more Jodie needs him - around the house, that is. First he helps with the snowstorm, then the power outage. Nick even finds himself trying to impress her little girl. What the hell is wrong with him? Jodie represents everything Nick doesn't want. But maybe she's just what he needs. . . .

Kelly Jamieson has made me cry! I love to be forced to tears while I’m reading. This book is so touching. A big, strong hockey player gets turned to romantic mush. That’s my kind of romance novel.

It is refreshing to find a book that includes my nearby city, Chicago. There aren’t a lot of books I’ve found that are based here. Another rarity is to have a small child involved in the story. Zyana is a brilliant, funny, adorable 2-year-old girl who wraps everyone around her tiny pinky finger. She warms my mama heart!

If you like a little bit of hockey, a lot of romance, some hot sexy times, and adorable moments with a sweet child, oh, and a giant man who is a softie, then this book is for you. It’s a quick read with a happy ending. So worthwhile.
