Synopsis from Goodreads:

One bad hit has left the career of young NHL Center Luke Hudson in question. When he arrives for rehab with a minor league team, his injury has robbed him of the edge that made him great.

Team trainer Adella Price’s job is to help Luke get back in peak condition. But their one on one sessions shake her resolve to remain unattached. Dell is hands-off to all hockey players, even one as charming and successful as Luke.

As Luke starts to get ahold of his game again, he loses his grip on his heart. Helping Luke get his edge back brings to light what Dell is missing from her life. But those who want them apart are relentless, and with their careers on the line, Luke and Dell must decide if their love is worth risking it all.

My Review:

The writing in this novel is exhilarating. Rothert takes off skating, and you spend the entire novel out of breath. I read it in little more than a single sitting. The story itself is wildly imaginative and fiercely loveable. It is seamlessly put together, and presented in a manner that you can’t help but visualise. The hockey behind the novel is also solid. It was a complete rush. This is an emotionally profound novel. Rothert tells an incredibly racy love story while also tackling some very tough issues. Rothert definitely had me in tears more than once, and laughing out loud a great deal. There were also some moments that cause me to swoon.

Before I even start talking about the characters I should probably mention that I was hooked on the male lead when he was just a minor character in the first novel of the series. Now that he’s fully developed to lead the story, he’s absolutely unforgettable. He is beyond swoon-worthy. The female lead is definitely very unique as well. She is fighting to reconcile so many aspects of life that it amazes me that she’s still standing on her own two feet. Together, these two are unforgettable. Combine this with the strong secondary characters that Rothert brings forward and you have the perfect cast.

Overall, this was a fantastic novel. If I weren’t hooked on the series before I would be now. My final thoughts? Bring on the next please!
