A hookup doesn’t have to mean just once. Right?
Keep it easy. Keep it fun. Never hold on. That sums up my relationship goals, with hockey teams and with women. I learned early on that love and family equals fights and heartache. So I’m always moving on to the next team, the next hookup, before things turn sour.
When I meet Lola at a tropical beachside bar, it’s the perfect set up for a little hot vacation sex. She’s gorgeous, funny, and most importantly, leaving for home tomorrow. But this time, I have a sinking feeling I’ll be sorry to see her go.
I knew after that night in Aruba I’d never see Brandon again. That’s fine; I’m too busy vying for the corner office to make time for relationships. But when our paths cross again in New York, our sizzling attraction leads to “just one more night”. Then another. And another.
We never meant to become friends with this many benefits. Especially the one neither of us ever expected—or thought we wanted.
Read for a good cry and if you like a steamy romance with an accidental pregnancy!
I’ve been in such a book slump, it was so refreshing to read a book by a tried-and-true author. I can always count on a sweet story with a lot of heat. This book delivered and then some. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that included the accidental pregnancy trope, so that was a lot of fun. I’ll actually be watching for that in the future, I think. As a mother myself, it really took me on an emotional ride.
I went into the book blind, deciding I would go in only knowing it was a “hockey romance,” and just see how I enjoy it. I had already forgotten the blurb I’d read weeks before, so when I dove in, I was excited to find that I was in for quite the story right away. It actually started with a one-night stand and a whole lot of time in the bedroom. Uh oh! I was at first worried there would be too much of that and not enough story, but I should have known better. This author was brilliant at blending the two without ever overdoing anything.
I really liked both of the main characters. They were so well-written in how they related to their parents, carrying some of their childhood issues into young adulthood. Those same issues affected how they communicated with each other and caused a lot of the conflict in the book.
Best of all, the epilogue was a true epilogue. I’ve noticed a trend with many authors using the epilogue to advertise, push, or throw in a cliffhanger to “make” you buy the next book in the series. This author wrote a real epilogue wrapping up the story, just what it’s for! I was so pleased to find that, I almost cried again. LOL
