Fox lives Hockey. Unfortunately, he didn't make the team. His sports stars family didn't accept his sport, of choice, to not even get a team? He'd never hear the end. Oh, there'd be those who would sympathize—not what he wanted to hear.
Sasha has finally ended it with her boyfriend of over a year. Too bad she still works with him. She has an internship at a sports publication. It goes along with the studies she is completing. Her thesis is even a topic relevant to her work: the pressure young players are under and put on themselves. She maintains that their failure can often be caused by that pressure. With her close relationship with Fox, her boss wants her to use him as her example, however, she won't do that to him. He is part of the reason she chose the topic, but she won't infringe on their friendship.
And then one night...yep. A couple of drinks, a mushy movie, some truths about her lack of meaningful tender sex and it happened. The promises of it being a one-time thing...well you figure it out. Can they remain friends? Can they have a relationship? Can he be faithful to one? What impact will their families have on them?
I love Fox, felt for him, cheered for his successes, and yes (sorry guy) felt sorry for his disappointments. One good thing about a romance, you know you're going to be happy for them in end. Read on to find out if they can find their HEA together.
These two characters are both very strong and very weak. I love that they are able to use their strength and help the other out of situations that only each other could understand and help with. The passion and friendship is an incredibly strong bond. Fox's brothers and sister also were the supporting cast for the most part, and I love the relationship they have with each other. You can tell they always have each other's backs. The most interesting part of the book for me was the illness that Nana Malone brings out in Fox's father. It's an autoimmune disease. I love and appreciate when an author takes a real life issue and includes it in a story line. I know it's not the forefront story, but it does bring out how something like an autoimmune can take down a vibrant person and the need for time and rest is necessary. Kudos!
Traci Odom and Sebastian York are the narrators of this dual performance. They can do no wrong, both are well seasoned and perfect for contemporary romance.
The backstory of Sasha, Fox's best friend and most concerned supporter, was well developed and well written. She had written her master's thesis on athletes and the pressure they're under when they've been groomed all their lives for a certain sport and what happened when they don't make it and have no backup plan. She also presented this to the television station where she interned. They ran with the story and aired it, making Fox the center of the story, before she had a chance to tell Fox herself. How would this affect the burgeoning relationship between the two of them?
Gramps wasn't as vicious as he had been in the books of Bryce, Dax and Echo, but he hadn't quite learned his lesson. In spite of being told off by Fox and Fox's dad, Gramps still had his opinion and shared it freely.
Fox, as a goalie played against a player, Ransom, from the best team in the league, who was extremely quick; and as someone pointed out, looked like the Coulters. Exactly who is Ransom and does he have ties to the Coulters? Does Fox achieve his dream of playing professionally? Is Sasha rewarded for her story; and, what does Fox and the rest of his family think? The answers to these questions and many others make this an excellent book to read. Better in some ways than Bryce and Dax.
