This is an intriguing friends to lovers romance involving elements that drove the childhood friends apart years ago which are slowly revealed as the story progresses. Get ready for a sexy NHL player who has been attracted to the girl next door – who is also his best friend’s sister – for years and is finding it hard to ignore. However, their past and secrets are driving them apart. Can they overcome their past to give romance a chance or will that night forever drive them apart?

This is a sports romance where the emphasis is on relationships rather than the sport. It has well developed characters and it is only through honesty, communication and taking chances that their future together stands any chance.   It is a heartwarming story, showing how past mistakes can affect the future, especially when secrets are being kept – honesty really is the best policy but that sometimes takes even more courage.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Synopsis:

“A sexy NHL player, a sassy heroine, and a heartfelt romance that kept me engaged from beginning to end!”NYT bestseller Mia Sheridan

Hockey is my life. And it’s a great one. There’s an endless line of women, and I get to hang with my best friend Oli. Everything is perfect until she shows up. Oli’s twin sister, Flynn…hates my guts. I don’t blame her. I’m part of one of the worst nights of her life.

Now she’s next door and seeing her every day is killing me slowly. I wonder if we can ever get back to being friends. The way she looks at me sometimes, well, let’s just say my hockey stick isn’t the only thing that’s feeling hard these days.

But if she finds out the secrets I’m keeping, forgiveness will be the last thing on her mind.
