When hockey star Caleb Carter returns to his hometown to recover from an injury, the only thing he’s interested in is a little R & R. He never expects to run into his onetime crush at a grade school fund-raiser . Seeing Aaron Price hits him hard, like being checked into the boards. The attraction is still there, even after all these years, and Caleb decides to make a play for the schoolteacher. You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take, right?
Aaron has been burned by love before and can’t imagine what a celebrity like Caleb could possibly see in a guy like him. Their differences are just too great. But as Aaron spends more time with Caleb, he begins to wonder if he might have what it takes to win the hockey player’s heart.
Sometimes when I read, there are parts of the story that I fall in love with. Sometimes it’s the world and the universe that the author has created for us to take this journey. Sometimes it’s the characters or even just one character that I connect with. In this story, although I loved the small town feel of the story, it was Caleb and Aaron that I truly fell in love with.
Caleb was this character who was full of life and happy and had this very fun quality about him, it was easy to be drawn to him as a person. Aaron was more reserved and quiet although it easily came out that he had this fun quirky personality underneath all of that. And the connection between the two of them was slow and it was cute and it was wonderful. I just kept wanting to read more and see more of their journey together.
Aaron had reservations about their relationship, real valid reservations. He was hurt before by someone in a similar position is Caleb and he didn’t want to hurt Caleb and Caleb‘s career. And what I loved was Caleb‘s determination and showing Aaron he was there and he wanted to be there with him. Even with how vastly different their lives were.
The story was more sweet than hot but it was perfect for me! It was a story about trusting your heart and knowing that relationships can sometimes be a struggle and need compromise. I love the combination of these two authors together and I can’t wait to see what else we come up with!
