"And you will be calling," he said. "We'll be talking a lot."
"You're so sure of yourself."
"It's called confidence, baby," he said with that infectious grin of his... and then turned, jogged to the stairs and actually slid down the inch-wide railing.
While the hero, Tim, as charming/ humorous moments like this, he is also dealing with the loss of a child and has incredible moments of pain and grief. I can't stress how awesome it is to see characters that have both light and heavy emotions co-existing within their emotional spectrum as all real people do. It makes the sexy moments, even sexier.
The heroine is a girl after my own heart. She's a feisty pediatric nurse who is completely relatable and enjoyable to read. I was rooting for both lead characters from the very beginning and I'm looking forward to devouring the next two books in this series. BTW, I should mention, I normally ONLY read paranormal and urban fantasy. Anything in the realm of contemporary romance doesn't usually "do it" for me, but I couldn't put this down.
Tim and Erin's story is a great start to this series. Tim is a hockey player who the story paints as being towards the end of his career and yet he reminds me of so many who have their best years then. He is having a sensational playing year.
Erin is a nurse who has a huge crush on a doctor and goes to a Barracudas signing to get their autographs in hopes of impressing him.
As love always does, it doesn't work out the way our mind wants it to, but rather our hearts.
Tim and Erin end up dating after a fiasco at the signing. You can feel how much Tim is into this, he want the forever...the problem is he wants it with no children. He's lost a child to cancer and his heart is not willing to take that chance again. Erin loves children and seemingly she accepts his decision ...at least in her head but her heart...she wants to have children and she can see the fear in Tim. It's not that he doesn't want them but more he's afraid to take the chance.
Want to know how things up for Tim and Erin? Whether they take a chance on each other and decide to have Children. One click this title and you will be forever glad you did. I highly recommend it!
I bought On the Surface, book 1 of the In the Zone series, after reading the novella On the Brink (a book I was given an Advanced copy to read). Honestly, I loved the novella and was a little concerned that this series could never be as good. I was so wrong! On the Surface was everything I look for in a sports romance and so much more.
Tim Hollander made me swoon, he made me laugh and he made me tear up. Newly traded Tim is trying real hard to overcome his media image as a hot head. Even though, in my opinion, that fan deserved so much more than a bottle being thrown at him. So, what does he do at his first public appearance as a San Diego Barracuda? He gets in a fight with a "fan". Again, it was totally deserved. After all, he assaulted a woman that was standing in line waiting for an autograph.
Erin Collier was a great female protagonist. She was independent and strong without being abrasive. Even when she got pushed around by the guy, trying to swindle autographs just to sell them, she stood up for herself and Tim. I loved how she and Tim interacted with each other. He was thoughtful and aware of Erin's feelings and needs, without losing his tough and sexy image. I thought it was funny how even though Erin was attracted to Tim she still tried to convince herself that the Dr. O was the guy for her.
Definitely a great read! I can not wait to read more of these uber sexy hockey players and the women that are lucky enough to be the object of their love.

It started off pretty well, but then it just kind of fizzled out. I found Tim and Erin's chemistry to be less than sizzling. Their relationship accelerated pretty fast but just didn't hook me.
She was pretty waffley about the whole thing. And he was SO all-in when he'd been so anti-relationship...it didn't seem believable.
Then, there wasn't much conflict in the story. The biggest problem they had was something from his past and all he had to do to fix it was just change his mind. Kind of lame.
There was a smarmy guy toward the beginning who I thought would reappear and do something nefarious to Erin, but he just disappeared and we never saw him, or Tim's competition, again.
Plus the sex scenes just weren't all that sexy IMO. Something definitely lacking there.
Anyway. Not awful but not great either.
I've read a few books in succession now that fall in that category. This book has the misfortune to be catching me in a moment when I feel like writing a review.
On the fence about reading the next one.
