The Puck Drop by Jaqueline Snowe is now live!
Falling for the coach’s daughter was never part of the plan…
Michael Reiner has the new start he’s been craving, where no one knows about his past and he can finally figure out what he wants out of life. Because one thing’s for certain—he can’t play hockey anymore, and life without hockey seems daunting. But when he gets the chance to intern under the Central State Hockey coach, he couldn’t be happier. Until he finds out the mysterious hottie he met at the bar is the Coach’s daughter.
Naomi Fletcher-Simpson has always been the weird twin. She prefers spreadsheets and trivia nights while her popular sister is everyone’s favorite. Things have been tense in her family, so when she gets a chance to pair up with the hockey team for a huge stats project, she takes it. She can repair her relationship with her dad and hopefully score her dream internship in the process.
Neither Michael nor Naomi expected to like each other. Complete opposites in every way, they slowly form a deep friendship that makes their chemistry sizzle, and friends with benefits is the only option to deal with their growing attraction. Michael can’t afford to lose the internship, and Naomi can’t afford to lose her heart to a hockey guy.
For the guy who’s suffered enough loss, and the girl who’s always left behind, they can’t risk falling in love—not when they both know all things come to an end, right?
I just finished this book a couple of days ago and I am already looking forward to more! This author is pretty new to me, but I’ve enjoyed all the books I’ve read thus far. She has excellent writing skills and doesn’t make me twitchy LOL Ya’ll know how it is with an author you don’t know know and are still kinda dipping your toes instead of full on swimming when it comes to their work; a lot of twitching can happen! Okay, that’s probably more just a me thing but I digress.
I enjoyed the build-up of the relationship and appreciated that even tho this is kind of a shortish book, the author did an excellent job of fleshing out their connection to make me believe these two had a solid friendship that led to a HEA. Not sure if that makes complete sense but a lot of times, with books that are only a couple hundred pages +/- long, I find that not enough time is spent building the foundation between the leads that will secure a real HEA. You have to make me believe it in order for me to enjoy your story and she made me believe it! Props for that. Also, I especially appreciated that the author did not take the lead’s circumstances / baggage and turn the story down a deep gutting angsty read. Instead, she wove it into their budding friendship organically and realistically.
I honestly found no fault with this story. DO with that what you will 🙂
