About the Book:
The last thing any professional hockey player wants is to be the old man in the game. The guy who doesn't know when it's time to retire. Still, I can't bear the thought of leaving the game.
This past year I've reflected on all my regrets, and I told myself that once I retire it'll be the time to settle down and start a family. But this is where it gets tricky.
I think I've found her—my Mrs. Although she'll deny our connection to anyone who asks. We've been sleeping together casually and since I'm still playing hockey, I've let her get what she wants—me—whenever she wants.
After being told my career as a player is over, the owner of Florida Fury grants me a shot to stay in the game. A coaching position I didn't know I wanted until it was offered. The catch? He's also passing the family business down to his daughter.
Who's his daughter?
The woman who's been in and out of my bed for the past year. Which means the woman I intend to make my wife is now my new boss.
Jana and Kane's story is explosive emotionally, physically, and mentally. Jana is stubborn, in denial, and now Kane's boss. Kane is kind of a pushover where Jana is concerned but when he becomes the head coach, everything shifts. I love the realism of the relationship between Jana and Kane as they navigate her transition to owner of the Fury and his transition from hockey player to head coach. It's not an easy road for either of them, together or separately.
Both Jana and Kane have upbringing that shaped their adult lives into what they are right now. Baggage for both that is a hinderance and steers them into awkward situations (I'm looking at you Jana). Kane is not blameless but he's a lot more open to a relationship with Jana than Jana is with Kane. Both characters need to come to terms with their upbringing, their currently statuses in life (business and personal), and only then will they be able to move forward.
This book is emotionally rich with well-written characters. I loved the characters, the setting, the romance, and the realizations that occur in this book. I love how the authors are able to create a story that flows well, is perfectly paced, pulls in the reader, and keeps the reader engaged from start to finish. Another excellent addition to the Hockey Hotties series.
I was provided a copy of this book to read.
