I didn't love it. I liked it... just OK. I had a hard time really understanding either Kurt or Lisette's actions all the time. She was easier, but he was really an enigma for me. His instantaneous reaction to her trying to get a job with his team was odd and mean.
Maybe I just wasn't reading carefully enough some of the time, but switching names up for people and organizations is kind of jarring to me. I don't like to read a book and stop and say, "huh?" Kurt is sometimes referred to as Hawk, and sometimes not. Consequently I kept forgetting his name. The team is sometimes called The Rage and apparently also The Rajuns. I can certainly understand nicknames, but these came rather uncomfortably out of the blue. Maybe it's just me.
Their chemistry was pretty undeniable, but their lack of acting on it was also weird.
All in all, I felt pretty conflicted about the story. The premise is a good one, and their love for Jasper is heartwarming. The whole business with The Cup is great. I did, however, not understand the absence of his family until nearly the end of the book. So I enjoyed a lot of the book and spent the rest of my time scratching my head about it. I guess I'll settle on 3.5 stars, but round up for the sake of the author. I do hope her next book is better though.
Kurt Lundquist’s life was forever changed when this little brother died. Torn by grief and loss, as a hockey player, Kurt channels those feeling into his game to help his team win the championship. Now he wants to honor his brother, but has no idea where to start.
Lissette Broussard was the nurse that helped Kurt’s brother during his last days. But with every death, Lisette felt her heart shatter more and more. Needing a change, she looked for something new to do. Now she finds herself back in Kurt’s life.
Kurt and Lisette knew each other through very heartbreaking circumstances. Though both felt an attraction to each other, they kept their distance. But when Lissette finds herself in Kurt’s world, she ends up working for him. But Kurt has a secret that could destroy them. Can Kurt and Lissette find a way to each other or is it too late for them?
This was a fun quick read that was sweet, funny and emotional. Perfect for a summer day. I liked the characters, the story and Kurt’s teammates!
Kurt Lundquist is still mourning the loss of his brother, doing his best to accomplish his desires, even after his passing. He never imagined meeting Lisette Broussard again. She as well is followed by little Jasper’s death. This determines her to switch her career from hospice nurse. So both our main characters are looking for a new beginning, Kurt thinking of giving up hockey as well.
I loved the attraction between them, though I was not quite comfortable with the way things got back to normal after a hot moment. Their relationship starts with a lot of sexual tension. They still hold respect for Jasper’s death and to them, this is an obstacle that is hard to overcome, in their opinion. But this reason is exactly what brings them together, since Kurt hires Lisette to help him plan a party for Jasper’s team mates from his school’s hockey team, as was his wish.
The writing is very easy and the emotions are well expressed. The sadness, the intensity of their attraction, but as well the willingness to start over are well presented. The plot is not rushed at all and everything evolves at a normal pace.
Suffice to say that I quite enjoyed this book and the main characters. This is a clean romance, very suitable for a summer evening, while dreaming of your own “special someone” J I love Christi Barth’s writing and I do hope I’ll read more books by her. Till the next one, 4 stars go to “Check My Heart”
Lisette just wants to find a job in her new field. Being a nurse is fulfilling, but working with terminally ill patients has a cost. She is hoping to get into a new field, helping heal those she can. Kurt has always been attractive to her. Under such sad circumstances can they learn to love where they have a future?
This story was as sad as it was sweet. The genuine love felt for a family member can be very strong and this felt very real and sincere. I was touched by the gentle way the author had it brought out in the book.

I loved Kurt and Lisette so much!!!! Kurt is such a sweetie and even when he messes up you forgive him because you see how broken up he is about it and how hard he works towards making everything ok again. I also really loved Lisette because she's kind of funny but also super sweet and caring.
From the beginning Kurt and Lisette feel this pull towards each other and it's so cute to see them touching each other and sneaking kisses before they finally give in to each other.
This books was such a cute, quick read and I loved it!!! I only wish it was longer (entirely for selfish reasons).
