Starting over means a second chance . . .
Abigail Jansen is done with hockey . . . and hockey players. After leaving her two-timing NHL-star husband, Abby decides to start over in her hometown of Glenwood Falls, Colorado. There she doesn't have to deal with people gossiping behind her back or hear the word "hockey"—until her daughter tries out for the junior hockey team. Now Abby has to face her fears . . . and coach Jackson Westmore. He's tall, dark, handsome—and happens to hate her.
All through high school, talented hockey player Jackson Westmore had a crush on Abby, but he would never make a move on his best friend's girl. He gave her the cold shoulder out of self-preservation and worked out his frustrations on the ice. So when Abby returns, newly divorced and still sexy as hell, Jackson knows he's in trouble. Now even the best defensive skills might not keep him from losing his heart.
Abby, however, thinks Jackson dislikes her, so seeing him again, and discovering that her daughter is going to be on the hockey team he coaches, is not welcome news.
I enjoyed the development of their relationship. The tension between them in their first meetings was well written and made the progression of their relationship was believable. I thought the way it was handled worked for the characters and for their personalities.
The writing was strong, the characters and the dialog worked and the secondary characters added to the story without causing it to stall in any areas.
This is technically the 2nd book in the series, however it can be read as a standalone.
