Although I'm not usually a fan of books written about the pandemic the author uses the craziness of 2020 as a backdrop for a great read.
We meet Quinn - the overachieving man whore - with a girl in every city and a 2nd phone for just his hook ups and Sarah "Sunshine" Nelson - Gage's little sister who is having her own life crisis because of what else - a man - and has run home to her brother until she can figure out what to do with the rest of her life!
Quinn's life has taken a sharp right turn when his brother tells him he can't take care of his mom anymore and she needs to move in with him! He tries to explain he's gone so much he can't take care of her but no one is listening! He hires caretakers - and his mom fires them as fast as he hires them. He's also upset he had to give up his "life as he knew it" - his bachelor condo and one night stands - for a huge house he has no use for (but he learns to love his mirrored closet - WINK! WINK!).
Although they know each other from team events and through her brother it isn't until his Mom meets Sarah and decides she and will make the perfect caretaker that Quinn's problems start! Add in Archer - a service dog school drop out and the fun really begins. Thankfully Sarah is happy to give up living in Daisy's pink room from Hell to move in to help with Quinn's mom even though she's an engineer who knows nothing about taking care of someone.
With the team on lockdown and Sarah serving as a live in caretaker the tension is off the charts! Add in the fact she doesn't trust Quinn's motivations due to personal reasons and the "rule" about dating a team mate's sister and you can only imagine the interesting twists and turns their road to happily ever after takes.
Crazy moms, absent dads, jealous brothers, psycho stalker exes and big brothers aside - Quinn and Sarah find trust, truth and love amongst the craziness that is 2020 and the pandemic.
I also love the way Ms. Brady intertwines past characters with new ones to allow us to visit old friends. I enjoyed catching up with Gage, Lily and Daisy from Gauging the Player.
I can't wait for the next book in this series! Beckett, Paige, TJ, Natalie, Gage, Lily, Daisy and now Quinn and Sarah feel like old friends - and I love the fact she continues to let me hang out with them in my own virtual world!
I received a free copy of this book from the author but the words and thoughts are mine and are in no way influenced by this.
Book 4 in The Playmakers Series enthralled me from the first page. I really enjoyed the easy and lighthearted flow of the plot; the witty banter and the verbal sparring; which is well balanced by the empathic and realistic approach of serious topics and an unexpected, suspenseful thread. I love that we get to reconnect with old acquaintances and see how their lives pan out. The characters are wonderfully relatable, strong personalities with quirks and flaws, especially Sarah cracking Quinn's womanizer facade, incidentally taming his cantankerous mother, is highly entertaining.. A delightful read with serious undertones and a hard-won HEA.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
It’s a HEA, enemies to friends story that tackles family issues romances gone bad, and debilitating illness, all with a theme of embracing change to take a chance on a richer life. If you haven’t read the other books in the Playmaker series, you can start with The Winning Score. It’s written as a stand alone with characters from previous books that are like familiar friends if you’ve read the other books in the series.
Quinn Hadley has got quite a history with the puck bunnies ... but he’s starting to realize that the lifestyle is a little shallow. He’s now got his mother living with him in the suburbs and she’s a reminder that there is more to life than parties. Quinn’s in need of a caretaker for his mother who is battling a debilitating disease ... and Sarah, sister of a teammate, is the only one who has made a connection with his mother. As COVID hits and the hockey season is paused, Sarah and Quinn find themselves to be roomies (with mom). They realize that they have more in common than they first thought ... and their initial impression of each other *might* be a bit wrong.... and they start to shift their way from enemies to more.
This is an extremely well written, character driven story. Sub characters from previous books make the story delightful. The dialogue is witty and scenes sizzle to the point where your ereader may start to smoke ... and the storyline has a bit of suspense that will keep you guessing right up to the end.
If you’re looking for your next read, you’ll want to download The Winning Score today ... but clear your calendar and get the laundry done. You’ll want to plan on staying up all night to finish the book!
I received an ARC. This is my honest review.
