This book has such great potential. I love the rapidness of Theo and Carly falling in love in a situation that not a lot of people find themselves in.
There’s cute banter and sexy scenes, but my problem was that there were tiny plot holes that twitched at me. Maybe I’m just being picky, but I felt that some things were glanced over and creative license was taken advantage of.
I think with some fine tuning, this book could be a solid 4 for me. I would LOVE to give this author another try and see how her writing progresses. Again, there was great potential here.
I am really enjoying these stories of HOT hockey players by Kristen Echo
This is book one of the series but there is a prequel book as well I think everyone should read,
They are written as standalone reads but the characters appear in this book.
Carly Saint has had a very bad experience (or experiences) with Jock's, Hockey players especially
When her BFF and co worker told her about her husband cheating on her she was not surprised,
he is after all a hockey player. It is Christmas Eve and Carly has picked up one more shift at the diner
before her plane leaves to take her home for Christmas. But in walks trouble, In the for of Theo Montagne
the NHL's newest rising star player. He is gorgeous and has the most stunning azure blue eyes she has
ever seen, yet he wont even make eye contact with her when she takes his order.
Carly has to deal with other customers, 2 men that really giver her the creeps to the point that she is
a bit scared of them. Finally her shift is over and she heads out to her truck, The snow flurries from this
morning has turned into a heavy snow (30% chance huh) when Carly is clearing her truck she gets a weird
feeling that someone is watching her, Then she notices those two creeps have come up to harass her she
cant help but back up from them right into the little fancy red sports car parked way to close to her truck
it sets of the cars alarm and has the men running. Low and behold out walks Theo.
This story goes on from here to being stuck in a blizzard and Carly and Theo making a connection
wonderful quick read. with a side story I am sure is going to continue in the next book
Carly is driving to work on Christmas Eve. No worries, she will be done in plenty of time to get to the airport to spend the Christmas holiday with her mom and dad. But right now she is working in the little mom and pop diner. It is pretty busy for being Christmas Eve and the bad weather that is approaching. She has been raised to be a hockey fan by her father....the unfortunate part to that is she allowed her heart to be broken twice by boys that played hockey. No more falling for Hockey players, nuh-uh, no way no how!
Theo is the rising Hockey player new to the team. He decides to grab a bite to eat in this little mom and pop place. He doesn't really pay much attention to anything but his phone the whole time he is in the diner. He finishes and heads out to the parking lot, in time to see the waitress bump into his car. There is bad weather starting and he sees someone who needs assistance. He is a good hearted HOT man....and he also is a man who knows that he wants to be near this woman.
After the trouble from the two men in the diner, Carly is trying to get into her truck and go to the airport. Get out of the bad weather and to the airport. However her luck is not good today. Those same two jerks are taunting her in the parking lot. She bumps into the car next to her, that is when she hears a voice, and that scares the two jerks away. When Carly sees who is talking to her, things just seem to get worse. Now her truck won't start. The twists and turns begin here.
Theo offers her a ride, and she says she is going to the airport. Perfect so is he. The ride is mostly silent, but when there is conversation it is snarky from her and light hearted from him. Finally admitting the weather is too much to try to drive anymore in, they find a house and luck for them begins to change. Once inside the snarkiness is in full effect. Theo and Carly have a moment and then things keep heating hotter from then on.
But none of this happens until Theo and Carly talk, really talk and open up to one another about all they have been through. Now they are together and Theo is NOTHING like what Carly tried to think he was. They are interrupted by the owners of the house, there is something that happens that will come back to them two fold, and then a big event. Carly and Theo make it through a really surprising ordeal, and still Theo is better than what Carly thought he would be. They truly are together, some fun in sues and they have a very happy ever after.
