Zane Winchester is a beast on the ice, known for racking up penalties and delivering hard blows. No one would suspect the complicated nature of his personal life, or just what it entailed. And no one, not even him, would have suspected what one unexpected encounter with a remarkable woman would do to his life.
Mara Matthews is a regular woman with a regular job and a regular life. Then she meets the father of one of her little students, and regular becomes the last word to describe her life. Zane is intense, funny, charming, and drop dead gorgeous; he shouldn’t pay any attention to someone like her. But Zane isn’t giving up, and Mara doesn’t want him to.
It's another Northbrook Hockey Elite book! I'm not a hockey fan but I wish I were. There aren't many opportunities to watch hockey where I live but if there were, I think I could be a hockey fan. This book really makes me want to watch hockey.
Zane is the best. He's just an all around good guy- well, on the ice he's got a bit of a reputation for intentional rough play but aside from that, he's got all the qualities that make for a great lead man. I loved how Zane recognized Mara's goodness right away, probably due to his daughter, but still. Yes, he was attracted to her but it was more than her looks. I loved how intentional Zane was and how he handled Mara and his daughter. It was so attractive. And, speaking of attraction. . . <ahem>. There is plenty of attraction between Zane and Mara. Holy cinnamon roll scene, Batman. And can I please get some of that? Flame on.
This is probably my favorite book in this series so far. Did I say that last time? Hmmm. I love this group of hockey player friends. I love how they support each other and how they all rally around Zane and especially his little girl in this book. It melted my heart.
