So this was an ARC from the author for review as part of her continuing story of the hockey players (and football and other hot men…) from this small US town which had an ice rink in the winter and a football pitch in the summer.
We are working our way through all the players and this time it was the tuen of the latest player to join the hockey team as a (temporary) replacement for the goalie who had been ill. However, he was so good they kept him on as alternate.
We have met Muffy, the female lead before. She is a bit a klutz, lives with her mother, and fails to keep a job. however, she has a start-up business, part funded by a friend in Matchmaking. With a very unfortunate name for her business. Also, I don’t get why, with an excellent second name – Alexandra – she could use that or Alex rather than Muffy, but Muffy it is.
Jaegar is the goalie she has a relationship with. he has been in previous books, but at that time, I wasn’t at al sure about his character, but in this it really comes out. I still don’t like his beard – but that’s personal and if Muffy likes it, well… although the scruff in the book cover is something else.
He seems to be a good, non-judgemental, intelligent and caring person, and very tolerant. He would have to be with Muffy. And his family. His sisters are hilarious. And as the baby of the family, with a very much older brother, and then sisters and a mother with no filters on their words at the family dinners, he had a lot of knowledge that most men don’t acquire until much later in life!
As always, this book is very funny. Very well written. and worth buying.
