My Spoiler Free Review

I have been hoping for the past few weeks to reread Stevie and Bishop's fall into love story via my Kindle copy so I could highlight my favorite moments since I originally finished reading the audiobook format. Alas, the time to do a Kindle (re)read just hasn't been there and isn't likely to magically become available with all the activities I have on my calendar for February and March. Insert Big. Long. Sigh. Here.

What I loved most about this sports romance novel…
Page-turner / Absorbing listen | Wonderful characters | Realistic | Entertaining | Romantic | Funny | an awesome Read-Along hosted by the author | Easy-to-read / listen-to | Steamy | Happily Ever After

Format read: Unabridged Audiobook (Audible retailer)

Narrated by: Erin Mallon and Jacob Morgan

Length: 8 hrs and 5 mins

Release Date: 01-28-20

Publisher: Brilliance Audio

Writing style: Dual POVs (Stevie's and Bishop's)

Cover and chapter design gush: I like these colors and the overall style of the cover. I also love the chapter titles that gave us a hint of what was coming the reader's way.

Overall ★★★★★

Performances ★★★★★ My ears grinned in delight when I saw that two of my favorite narrators would be pulling me into this hockey romance. Erin Mallon and Zachary Webber never fail to deliver their A-level vocal acting. I always look forward to audiobooks narrated by either of them, so having the two of them cast was extra exciting.

Story ★★★★★
What else can I say that I haven't said before about a Helena Hunting novel? She consistently writes characters that I enjoy living inside of with each new novel.

Stevie and Bishop were interesting leads and the secondary characters in their lives were intriguing friends / family members that round out their lives so well. They had a rocky start / first face-to-face encounter but built from there in a realistic and entertaining way that made this one an early 2020 romance read.

Coming Up Next in this series of stand-alone novels: A Secret for a Secret (All In, book 3) with an anticipated Release date on May 12, 2020. I've already pre-ordered my copy.
