About this ebook

I never thought I’d see her again.

We shared one hot night together back in college before our paths took us in different directions.

But now, the most brilliant and beautiful woman I’ve ever met is back in my life. And the chemistry I remember? It’s more combustible than ever. 

Except…our fling is forbidden and must exist only in secret. Her rules, not mine.

I can’t be her forever. I’m not that guy, and even she knows it. 

But I can’t stay away from her either. I’m determined to claim not just her body but her heart, even if that’s the one thing she’s vowed not to give me.

Holt is just wonderful! I struggled a little to get into this because it started exactly the same as the prequel so I kept wondering if I was reading the same book again and really wanted to get to the new part of the story. Probably wasn't helped by the fact I'd read the prequel not long before starting this! Anyway, once we got past the point where the prequel ended it pulled me in fully just as the prequel had. I adore Holt and love the relationship he has with Eden. They are such well thought out characters you really do care for them and become invested in their story. I also loved the rest of the characters that were introduced along the way. I love hockey series and I can tell that these guys are going to be epic to read more about. I can't wait for the next book when we find out more about Alex. Right now I'm not a fan of his but I'm sure I will be soon!

This is my first Kendall Ryan book, and it certainly won't be my last. This was such a sweet, second chance romance set in the world of professional hockey. Eden has just inherited a hockey team from her late grandfather, and Holt comes on to help with security for her. They both had met previously while in college and have a hot attraction for each other. There were definitely complications, with both being hesitant to jump into anything due to previous experiences and things they had lived through, but their chemistry is just too strong to ignore. I loved how we got both POVs in this sweet romance, and enjoyed seeing them build a relationship together, despite denying that's what they were doing. Their relationship had a bit of the forbidden to it as Eden feels she can't get involved with someone she works with, and Holt fears their backgrounds are just too different. Highly recommend this if you love either sports romance, second chance romance, or a sweet romance. Thank you to Booksprout for the advanced reader copy. I voluntarily left an honest review.

I'm not sure how I feel about this story. It was entertaining and there are many enjoyable parts. The characters were interesting and likable for the most part. Holt deserved to be someone's number one choice. That is my issue with this story. Eden wanted Alex the whole time. She wanted to be with Alex in college but since he was busy getting a bj from someone else, she settles for having sex with Holt. She then leaves Holt and leaves him a note saying it was a mistake and goes back to chasing after Alex. They are together for years. Alex leaves her so she settles for Holt. I felt like if Alex said babe, I want to give it another try, she would have dropped Holt and gone running back to Alex. Personally, I would rather be alone than be someone's second choice or to have someone settle for being with me when they'd rather be with someone else. I was glad that Holt got his happy ever after. I recommend giving this book a chance, you may like it more than I did. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
