This is book 3 in the Hometown Players series. This book most certainly can be read as a standalone. I just advise against it, since the characters and continuing story may be spoiled for those that have not read it in order first. This series is worth it!
Devin and Callie have history that goes back to when they were children. They grew up basically together and their siblings all played with them on the playground and the ice. Devin and Callie also have a personal history that only one other person knows.
Now, Devin is an NHL hockey player for a New York team. Callie gets a job working nearby and he offers to have her stay with him. She is one of the few people who know he is separated from his wife. Callie is also fantastic with his son.
Callie is doing well in her career too. She is one of the youngest in her field to be in charge of costumes on a TV show set. While she plans to have a family one day, she does not really do anything to make it a priority.
Devin and Callie are really good together. The book nearly smokes it is so hot! I found the honesty and the tenderness just so amazing to read! I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
