In a captivating novel of second chances and healing hearts, the newest member of the Nashville Assassins pulls a power play to make things right with the one that got away.
Fallon Parker’s dream
has always been to turn her family’s wine company into a runaway
success and eventually start a cellar of her own. Since graduating from
college, she has worked relentlessly to make that dream a reality,
especially after taking a chance on love—and losing. By the time Fallon
becomes an official sponsor of the Nashville Assassins, she feels like
all her hard work is finally paying off. And then the man who broke her
heart skates back into her life.
On the ice, Lucas Brooks is
the NHL’s leading scorer—at least when he’s not in the box. Off the ice,
he’s a mess, with all his anger and misery bottled up inside. He threw
away the most important person in his life and has regretted it ever
since. But when Lucas returns to Nashville in a trade, he’s determined
to convince Fallon that he’s a changed man. The attraction is still
there. The tension is electrifying. But the odds are stacked against
them—especially after Lucas finds out that Fallon has been keeping a
I've mentioned before about how much I love hockey and hockey men so
reading about them is a such an easy thing to do. I watch the sport
religiously and attend the games as much as possible, which isn't very
often cause it's a four hour drive to both Nashville and Columbus so I
only go once or twice a season when they play
my favorite team. That being said, when I found this series I was so
excited to read about the men who play and the women who are strong
enough to hold onto them.
Lucas was awesome. He had been
through so much before he was traded to the Assassins and needed that
second chance that they gave him. And of course running
into Fallom wasn't to bad either. That the two had a past history only
made the story better. At times Fallon really got on my nerves. I
just wanted to shake her and scream "it was seven years ago...give him a
break!" but then I would try to think about if I were in her position I
would try to protect my son and feelings too. Aidan was adorable and
reading about his interactions with Lucas brought on a few happy tears.
can't wait to read more books in this series and see how Ms. Also plans
on topping this book. Definitely recommend this book to all lovers of
the romance genre. You don't even have to be a fan of hockey either
since it only plays in the background.
