This is such a sweet second chance love story! Second chance stories are some of my absolute favorites, but I am also the most critical when it comes to them. You have to really convince me the couple deserves each other and can make it work the second time around. That said, I fell hard for Scott and Becca! These two clearly belong together!
I actually started this series out of order and read Scoring the Player first. Once I read it, I knew I needed to go back and get Scott and Becca’s story, because I was already half in love with them. They are just so perfect for one another. Scott may be the tough hockey player in the rink, but he is the ultimate gentleman when it comes to Becca. He is sweet and treats her like his queen. There is absolutely nothing he wouldn’t do for her. And Becca is the same. Neither one of them could stand to be apart once they found their way back together. I loved that Becca understood what his job required and never made him feel like he had to choose. She was loving and supportive and wanted him to be successful. I absolutely loved that there wasn’t something huge to forgive, yet the characters still had to change and develop throughout the story. They needed to find a way to make things work, and they did.
I love the way the team is like a family in this series. The guys are supportive of one another and the WAGs (wives and girlfriends) also stick together. I love the way the books are so connected and leave you excited and ready for the next story because you already feel like you know the guys. I also enjoy that hockey is important to the story rather than just mentioned in passing. You don’t need to be a huge fan to enjoy the story, but it is a true sports story.
I am a huge fan of this series! My only advice is to block out some reading time, because once you read this, you will want to read right through the rest of the series!
