    Easy romantic read for a rainy day.

    This book is more of a 3 1/2 star book than a 4, but I liked it so much more than the previous book in the series I scored it up instead of down. I liked Gabriella, our heroine. I empathized with her struggles of feeling left out and not quite belonging anywhere. She was someone who needed a placid life and was staring down the barrel of change and I understood her perspective in the book. I liked Bryant, our hero, as well. He came across as a kind man who had been dealt some difficulties early in life that he was finally coming to terms with. The relationship between the main characters felt solid and right. They did make me feel like they would make each others lives better. There were a few things that I did not like about the book. I disliked Bryant's mother excessively. She was a truly controlling and toxic hag. People like her never really turn around or stop trying to orchestrate what goes on in their children's lives. I can't stand people who see every situation through the lens of how it affects them first and foremost. Maybe because I have known women like this, I find even reading about this type of character exhausting. Also, I really hate Amy still and I didn't like the little reminders of the previous book (there is a little something called Fiduciary duty and I really hated the entire storyline of Faceoff). I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance. I received an ARC in exchange of an honest review.

    heartbreaking story

    This is a love story between Bryant and a successful Hockey player and his best friend sister Gabriella. Although they know each other for years, they are not secretly in love with each other. But one day everything changes and Bryant sees Gabriella more than his best friend's sister and Gabriella lets down her guard and lets Bryant in. But they are both full of scares from the past. Gabriella had learned to overcome then but Bryant because of his family still struggling. They are both well-developed characters, both likable and what happened to them in the past is really horrible. Gabriella had a great chance of having her brother on her side, but she is also afraid to be left alone. Bryant's past is also horrible and what his mother did to him I felt sorry for him. In a way, I think that the past is something that connects those two, the struggle finding the strength to live forward. And because of that Gabriella can help Bryant stand up for himself and for her and their love. A heartbreaking love story.

    Sassy couple

    Gabriella has reason to not trust hockey players despite the fact that her brother is one. When Bryant, her brother’s best friend and team mate, demands ice cream from the bakery where she works she begins to look at him in a different light. She might be able to have a one and done with him, but she could never trust him enough to have more. Bryant’s life hasn’t turned out exactly as he had planned when he graduated high school. His family makes emotional demands on him that are taking their toll. Suddenly however, Gabriella seems to make the weight on his shoulders a little less heavy. This couple has quite a spark going between them and despite the promises they make to themselves and each other to remain friends only, you just know it’s all going to blow up in their face spectacularly. I enjoyed their light hearted banter and easy camaraderie they shared. On the other hand, I just wanted to yell at Bryant’s mother. She was so passive aggressive and controlling when she spoke to him. This is all part of the plot, and these authors totally made it believable, thus my anger at his family. The end was wrapped up a little too neatly for my taste and an epilogue would’ve gone a long way toward making me feel better about it. However, with Emile and Amy from the first book playing a large role here, I assume we’ll get more of Bryant and Gabriella in the next installment. This is an honest review of an advanced copy provided by NetGalley and Adams Media. Dual POV Safe No apparent triggers
