The Right Fit by Daphne Dubois
Publication date: April 12th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
She’s sworn off love, he’s sworn off sex, but together they’ll score the goal of a lifetime.
When Maxine Nicholls discovers her fiancé is cheating, she turns to fast food and nighttime soap operas, but her sister has a plan—unbridled rebound sex with a stranger.
As one of Toronto’s hottest players, Antony Laurent tallies scores on and off the ice, but when the chiseled defense man hits a slump, rumors of a trade to the minor league send him to ambush a managers meeting at a posh club.
That night a chance encounter ends up as an unforgettable evening of passion. But Maxine and Antony are about to discover a game of casual hook ups can lead to something neither one of them thought they deserved—the right fit.
This was an entertaining book. Whilst the foreshadowing may not have been subtle, the delivery of the expected storyline was handled well.
I thought that both the characters were sweet and endearing. So often with sports stories, the lead male can be an arrogant bad boy – not so here. There is a vulnerable side to Antony and that is allowed to play out on the pages.
Pacing was, on the whole, good. And although the conversation between the two was sometimes a little unnatural in cadence, it didn’t detract from the overall enjoyment of the story.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
