Be still my heart! This enemies to lovers romance had me laughing and crying, stealing my breathe with moments of unrestrained passion and tender moments of love beyond expectations. Plus this is a second chance sports romance which is a top trope of mine, nothing beats the dedication of an athlete to their sport. This story had all of my favorite elements- spitfire heroine, banter full of sexual tension, arrogant hero and undeniable chemistry. The back and forth between Hunter and Dekker just had me dying for them to get together, I knew they would be explosive.
Oblivious to his own burnout in the sport he loved, Hunter had let his success in Hockey become a solitary endeavor, trying to prove to himself and his family that he was worthy of his place. When Dekker walks back into his life at a pivotal moment, she is the distraction he doesn’t want but the savior his soul needs. Demons from past mistakes create a lot of heartache, with some surprising twists coming fully into the light. These were the moments that touched my heart and had me rooting for that happily ever after. While needing to keep it professional was certainly a challenge between Hunter and Dekker with their past relationship being hot and passionate, that past bond led to a love that neither wanted to live without.
“She’s a savior and a sinner, and I’m not quite sure which one I need to hold on tighter to. But I do know one thing. I want both.”
This book was an absolutely fantastic start to a new series, definitely looking forward to the rest of the sisters books!
For example, “By protecting the man I love and this man—his father—taking a step forward, when for so long he’s refused to budge.”
“I wouldn’t complain to see how they cover you.”
“Hunter told Jonah to look closely on the coin toss when the cameras pan in and notice how he had written Jonah sideways in the one of his number thirteen so he could be playing with him.”
I don’t meant to nitpick, but when you frequently have to reread sentences multiple times to figure out what they’re trying to say, then a book is no longer fun to read.
I know self published novels can be revised and put back up. Someone needs to do that to this one.
Dekker Kincade and her three sisters work with their father at Kincade Sports Management, and it’s time to bring in some new clients. Dekker gets assigned to woo one of hockey's biggest names, Hunter Maddox. Too bad he's the one professional player she had a no-strings thing with and then walked away from without a word. Awkward, but Dekker is a professional, and there'll be no thing, strings or otherwise, this time around.
Well, anyone who ever read a romance novel knows how that works out, but the beauty and delight of this story is in the journey. The push and pull is strong between these two, the chemistry arcs like lightning, and the serious, tender moments are so wonderfully poignant I thought my heart would burst.
No matter how much you prepare yourself, or how much you try to protect your heart, once you start reading this one you'll realize how futile your attempts were. These characters and their story will own you, heart and soul, and remain a part of you long after the last page. So take a breath, dive right in, and experience the most exquisite anguish you’ll find in romance reading today.

This one combines a second-chance romance with a sports romance and it packs a punch! The emotions in this one pack one hell of a punch!! seriously ALL THE FEELS!!!
Dekker has been tasked with lading hockey god Hunter as a client for her family's Sports management firm. She can do this right? despite their steamy past? hhmmm of course their connection is going to step up a level! they are perfect for each other.
My heart honestly broke for Hunter. His back story honestly will break your heart and you can't help but feel so protective over him. Dekker has a tough road ahead of her trying to break down his walls.
Yet again another fabulous read from K Bromberg. Her writing is always flawless! I can't wait to see what she is going to bring us in future
Wow just wow I got all the feels from Hunter and Dekker’s story it was amazing!!
Dekker is a sports agent she works hard and that’s about it but when she is given a assignment to recruit someone it’s going to cause old feelings to resurface,
Hunter is the star player in the NHL yet he currently hates his job, he is trying to please everyone else and make his family proud but he is burnt out, only problem is he cannot and does not want to accept that.
When Dekker walks back into his life things are going to come out but can he deal with them head on and start living his life for himself again?
Loved how it was a second chance, great chemistry between them and ended as expected with zero complications.
What surprised me is that the best part of this book isn’t the romance between the two characters. For me it was the relationships and banter between the sisters and most definitely the father daughter relationship. It added such a special tangent to this book.
