This is book #7 in the Aces Hockey series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and understanding of the series, I recommend reading in order.
Jodie and Nick know one another through mutual friends. When their friends think they should move in together, it becomes a series of awkward conversations. Single-mom Jodie cannot afford to get involved with someone too quickly. Can she be near him and not lose her heart?
Nick is everything she wants and is hard to stay away from. Little does he know while he pines for the elusive Jodie, she also pines for him. When they learn to see eye to eye, maybe this could be love after all.
This was a slow burn. The characters had good interaction and the book was at a good pace. What I liked best was the real touch of the honest way a single parent would react. This title has lots of heat, plenty of heart and an endorsement from me. I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
