Clint McCarthy has finally achieved his dream of playing for a professional hockey program, and is eager to make his mark with his new team. While getting settled in his new city, he happens across Bree Stone, whom he has known for years, with their respective brothers both being in the famed Belltown Six Pack. But for the life of him, he can’t remember Bree ever looking so attractive. Or being so captivating. Or taking over his every waking thought.
In the middle of her graduate degree, Bree has no time or desire for working on her dating life, or lack thereof, but the impossibly handsome Clint McCarthy coming back into her life makes everything complicated. She shouldn’t be focusing on him, or on them, not when her professional future hangs in the balance. But once she hears about Clint’s past with the Northbrook Hockey Elite program, and where that program stands now, Bree just might find a way to make her career, and a future with Clint, come to life.
Welcome to Northbrook Hockey Elite!
Six professional hockey players used to play on an elite club team together, but have all separated and now play in the pro-hockey leagues. Not all of them were friends, yet circumstances bring them together, and for the greater good, maybe they can put aside their differences.
I can't tell you how excited I am for this series! After reading (and LOVING!) the Belltown baseball series, I've been anxious to get started on this one. I actually know next to nothing about hockey which makes me more like Bree because I was raised with baseball but that isn't going to stop me from enjoying this series!
One of my favorite things about this story is that Clint is in from the first moments of seeing Bree again. He is pursuing her and she knows it. The chemistry and the intensity increases between them and I could feel it. It was a natural progression of feelings. I love that once Clint and Bree are in it, they don't have any major misunderstanding that drives them apart. They work on a problem together but they don't ever fight. That was refreshing and I loved it.
The first kiss was yummy, Bree's friends and the whole hockey community are fun, and I love that we don't have to say goodbye to the six pack! This book was so good and I can't wait for the next book, out next month!! Yay!!
