My marriage wasn’t perfect, but my husband’s unexpected death yanks away my sense of security and leaves me floundering.
Enter Jameson Flynn, former NHL star and my late husband’s sports agent, who’s back in my life as the executor of the will. Things between us are as contentious as when we worked together five years ago, except now we’re working together to navigate all of the secrets and deceptions my husband left behind.
I remember Jameson as arrogant, condescending, and heartless. And yet, he repeatedly shows up for me and my daughters – helping me pick up the broken pieces and put my life back together.
Now I’m seeing a side of him he only reveals to people he truly cares about. He’s protective in a way I didn’t know I’d like, caring in a way I didn’t know he was capable of, and still sexy as hell.
The problem is, he broke my heart a long time ago. But the closer I get to Jameson, the more I see that the only thing easier than hating him might actually be loving him.

This was a sweet and spicy sports romance featuring a single mom/widower and a former hockey player turned sports agent.
Lauren is in a tough spot when this book starts out. And things get even harder for her as secrets come to light and she realizes a lot of what she thought she knew about her marriage and late husband and life were a lie. And Jameson was a wonderful book boyfriend. He wasn’t perfect, but he did his best to help Lauren and get back what he missed out on all those years ago.
The conflict in this book was hard, but I thought Connors handled everything with delicacy and honesty. She spoke to the root of the problem as her characters saw it and wrote it all well.
I felt like there was a touch of chemistry missing from the family as a whole. I wanted more time with Lauren, her kids, and Jameson to really see them connect and bond. That was missing a bit here.
Overall, this was a nice sports adjacent romance with sweet and sad moments to really pack a punch.
