Publication date: February 15th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Parker.jpgSynopsis:

Former collegiate athlete and successful sports agent, Charlotte “Coach” Coachman, is a straight shooter who has a very strict policy—no dating clients. The loves of her life are coaching little league basketball and managing the careers of her players, leaving no room for men.

Coach hasn’t met an athlete she couldn’t handle and a deal she couldn’t close—until she meets Alex Parker—the NHL’s most notorious bad boy both on and off the ice.

Alex is the best defenseman in the league, breaking records along with hearts. He’s made a name for himself as a womanizer, and after a scandal involving the owner’s granddaughter, Alex is traded to Philadelphia. Still reeling from the loss of his father, Alex is on a downward spiral, drowning himself in booze and women, until Coach takes him under her wing.

She might be attracted to the sexy hockey star, and certainly not immune to his charms, but Coach can see that Alex needs her help, and coaching players is what she does best. Now that the lines are blurred and the passion between them is too strong to deny, Coach has to decide if Alex is worth making an exception to her rules.

review

You know, I really shouldn’t like Parker.  At all.  He is, for all intents and purposes, a complete and utter douche.  and I really liked Coach from the outset – she is a strong, feisty, independent and eminently likeable female lead.

But, if you can get beyond his past (and the catalyst for his bad behaviour helps to a certain extent) then you are left with a heartwarming story which filled me with anticipatory butterflies.

The connection the author has created, both between the characters and with the reader, is strong and really had me wanting this couple’s relationship to succeed.

Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable story.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

THE CAD

Bryan Leech is a cad.

Or, he *was* a cad.

No one is quite certain.

Once the quintessential playboy, Bryan claims he’s done with wild parties and weekend benders. No more one night stands leading to mornings he can’t remember; no more binges and blackouts; no more exploits plastered all over the tabloids and rag sheets. According to Bryan, he’s cleaning up his act.

The only problem is, no one believes him.

THE CO-ED

Eilish Cassidy never thought she’d be a mother at nineteen or still in college at twenty-four. Cut off from every member of her family except her favorite cousin, she’s finally managed to put her life back together. Stronger and wiser, Eilish enters her last semester of university determined to stand on her own. Now she just needs to find an internship.

The only problem is, her best option—by far—places her directly in the path of her son’s father, and he doesn’t remember her at all.

THE PLAN

Bryan is determined to prove he’s changed. Eager to settle down with the right woman, he’s got his sights set on the gorgeous redhead who seems terribly familiar.

Eilish is determined to hide her secret. She’ll do anything to keep her child safe, even if that means ignoring her own wishes and desires.

But what happens when Bryan starts to remember? And what will it take for Bryan to convince the girl he forgot that she’s unforgettable?

review

Wow.  This one is definitely up to the overall standard of the previous book, but with a totally different tone.  Much less frenetic.

I like the idea of getting to know the whole rugby family, but Bryan and Eilish are just frustratingly adorable around each other.  Their incremental relationship.  His awkwardness.  Her defensiveness.

But the best supporting cast oscar is shared here with Sean and Patrick, who between them add a humorous thread that elevates this story beautifully.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

excerpt

From the moment I first saw my stalker, I was captivated.

The man with the black leather jacket and dark, spiky hair sits on a bench across the street from my house, staring down at a notebook.

Every night, he sits there at exactly ten p.m., looking off into the distance or writing his notes under the street light … or looking straight at me.

Like he is now.

Our eyes meet, and a sudden electrical current rushes through my veins.

I’m unable to look away from his piercing blue eyes, and I wonder … How long ago did he first see me?

I’ve only noticed him outside recently … watching over my house as if he’s guarding it. Guarding me.

I don’t know if I should be scared. If I should run or call the cops.

He’s never come close.

So is there any reason to act?

As long as he maintains his distance … an invisible line he doesn’t cross … I still feel safe. I can survive, knowing he is there, wherever I go.

I never know when or where I’m going to see him again.

I just know I will.

A hampered breath leaves my throat as he stares me down from across the street. His gaze feels like it penetrates through the closed windows. And for a brief second, I think I spot a hint of a smile.
