4 stars – It was really good

Luca is a successful hockey player for the Chicago Blaze. He is also raising his nieces and nephews after the death of their parents. He doesn’t have time for women between hockey and the kids. But a one night stand with Abby isn’t enough. With each meeting he falls more for this beautiful woman who is determined to put up barriers.

This book was so good. It was emotional, heartbreaking, and full of love. I adored Luca. He was the perfect uncle and parent. He was so supportive and patient with all the kids. I loved that he never tries to hide his feelings from the children, especially when it comes to their parents. He works with them to confront their grief and never pushes them too hard. Like I said, I adored Luca and the kids. 

Abby has lost the people closest to her in the worst ways possible. She created her own company which is now widely successful in the wake of that loss. She has buried her grief in work and refuses to talk about it with anyone, until Luca. I was so upset for Abby and just wanted to hug during her darkest moments. If you are a crier, be prepared with tissues. These two have gone through so much pain but together they have found a new happiness and life together. 

Rothert does an amazing job at creating great characters and an emotional story. I cannot wait to read the next one because I know it will be an emotional and love filled story. 

Trigger Warning: 

  • Loss of close relatives
  • Child death (referenced)
