He’s ready to quit his pro-hockey career. She’s doing everything to keep her career afloat. And neither of them have time for distractions.Jax Emerson, legendary forward for the Chicago Flyers, is ready to throw it all away when he uncovers the truth behind his NHL contract. The last thing he needs is more media attention, or his father to get involved in his contract, or a beautiful woman apologizing once again for an accident.

Meg Bailey didn’t think her life could get any worse, until it does. Time is running out before her business is forced to close. When Jax Emerson offers a solution, she knows that by accepting his help, she might be getting in too deep. And deep is not a place her heart is prepared to go. 

Welcome to Northbrook Hockey Elite!

Six professional hockey players used to play on an elite club team together, but have all separated and now play in the pro-hockey leagues. Not all of them were friends, yet circumstances bring them together, and for the greater good, maybe they can put aside their differences.

My Thoughts:

What an emotional and very romantic read.  I am not a sports person but I have certainly been enjoying this series of stories about hockey players and their lady loves. It almost makes me want to watch a hockey game, almost.

This is the second book in the series, but no worries you don't have to read the first one to feel fully invested in this book. These guys are on all different teams and each of the book gives us a close up of where they are in life and love.

I enjoyed the first much very much, but this one tops that one. Jax (Jackson) is a guy who is trying to make it in his career on his own merit and skill, without his daddy's money. He finds out some news he was not prepared for concerning his contract, and goes off in a bigtime huff. What he is also not prepared for is running into Meghan Bailey. Their first meet was quite a meet up and it was one of the most scary and crazy ones that I have read.

I liked Jax and Meghan. They tried really hard to keep their relationship going slow as both had been burned before. Meghan is an upscale boutique owner and her business is not doing well, so she is trying to save her career as well when Jax walks into her life. She is also four years older than Jax, so that threw in an interesting layer. 

Jax had some hard lessons to learn concerning himself, his father, and how he sees the world. I can't go into more as they are spoilers but I really enjoyed the ending. Very eye opening and romantic.

I look forward to the next in the series.

I received an ebook of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
