Sparks fly when a hometown hockey hero meets a classy art-loving museum guide hiding a secret...
Jai Mullins is used to being the fastest man on ice. Trouble is, his ability to find a genuine woman is tracking at glacial melt levels. He’s trusting God she’s out there, but he’s wary of getting trapped by a superfan, when all he wants is someone with whom he can be real.
Allie Davis has two great loves: impressionist art and hockey. More specifically, a certain hockey player. But between her shyness and her family, she’s convinced she’ll never meet him, let alone connect with him in a non-embarrassing way.
Until she does. And they connect. And romance sparks.
But she is hiding a big secret, and he’s about to find that first impressions sometimes need a reality check. Will they learn to trust and find a way forward, or will half-truths lead to further hurt on opposite sides of the country and lonely lives? This Windy City romance has plenty of heart, humor, and swoon-worthy kisses in the third book of the Original Six, a sweet, slightly sporty Christian contemporary romance series.
The couple of Allie Davis and Jai Mullins were great together. Each of them were a bit awkward getting to know one another and tongue tied as they had a tendency to mix up what they were trying to say. Allie, because she stuttered, and Jai just got all tangled up in the words. Some the things that Jai said provided some very humorous moments throughout the book.
As two insecure people, Jai and Allie each came to gain in confidence because of their belief in one another. Jai helped Allie to see she was beautiful and completely worth being loved. Allie helped Jai to see that he wasn’t the stereotypical “dumb jock” that he believed he was, but rather was intelligent and selfless.
As a fun sports-themed contemporary romance, this makes it a great, quick read. This is perfect for those days that you want a story about trust and love and navigating the ups and downs of life with that special someone. This is the third book in the Original Six Hockey series, but can be read as a stand alone.
Thank you to the author for a copy of the book. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are my own.
