“Quietly humorous, profoundly moving, and captivatingly seductive, with supportive secondary characters, this novel is sure to enthrall fans and newcomers to this series.” Publishers Weekly, Starred Review of Maybe This Time

Starting over means a second chance . . . 

Abigail Jansen is done with hockey . . . and hockey players. After leaving her two-timing NHL-star husband, Abby decides to start over in her hometown of Glenwood Falls, Colorado. There she doesn't have to deal with people gossiping behind her back or hear the word "hockey"—until her daughter tries out for the junior hockey team. Now Abby has to face her fears . . . and coach Jackson Westmore. He's tall, dark, handsomeand happens to hate her.

All through high school, talented hockey player Jackson Westmore had a crush on Abby, but he would never make a move on his best friend's girl. He gave her the cold shoulder out of self-preservation and worked out his frustrations on the ice. So when Abby returns, newly divorced and still sexy as hell, Jackson knows he's in trouble. Now even the best defensive skills might not keep him from losing his heart.

I'm just going to admit the fact that I'm forever going to be a hopeless romantic. I say this because from the very first page until the very last, I felt a connection to the main character, Abigail, and all the crappy things that she had to endure while being a "hockey" wife. That's where the story starts off; Abby and her daughter, Daniel, are starting a new life in Abby's hometown after a nasty divorce. Abby's husband Dean is terrible. Just be warned  about that. 

Once Abby moves, she knows right away that she needs to try and make it on her own. So she takes a substitute job that may or may not end up being a permanent teacher job. It's there she runs into Jackson, her ex- husband's best friend. Jackson is the cough to the little league hockey team. A team that Dani and Jackson's niece, Taylor, try out for. 

Abby and Jackson's slow burn romance was fun, sweet, and its one you can't help but root for. There were times when I wanted nothing more than to smack the two for being so oblivious or just plain dumb, but I'm glad that the romance wasn't rushed. It made it perfect in my eyes. The characters are endearing and I'm glad I'll be able to stay in the wonderful world that Snow has created. 

The next book is going to be about Ben, Jackson's brother who just so happens to play in the NHL! Tell me you aren't just as excited as me to get more hockey from the fun loving family that are the Westmores. If you're looking for a romantic read that will make you giddy with happiness, this is the one for you! And despite what a jerk Dean is, I still wish the guy the best. Sounds like he just let all that money and fame truly get to him. 

*Thank you to the publisher for providing a copy for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Happy Book Birthday, Cheyanne!
After four years of first love bliss, Isla Rush just got dumped.
Any hope she has of winning her ex-boyfriend back is shattered when the town rezones her neighborhood, forcing her to spend senior year at a wealthy high school in the next town over.
With a broken heart consuming her soul, Isla can’t focus on anything, except maybe Emory Underwood—a ridiculously hot guy who dates a new girl almost every day. She can’t help but crush on him, even though it’s wrong.
When memories of her ex make her cry in second period, the school counselor sends Isla to a club that meets during lunch. The Break-Up Support Group is a collection of broken-hearted misfits who are all helping each other heal.
Just when Isla’s heart is finally on the mend, Emory shows up, forced to atone for all the broken hearts he’s caused over the years. While hiding her massive crush, she helps him understand the seriousness of breaking a heart.
In turn, Emory offers to help Isla get back on the dating scene by agreeing to be her fake date for the homecoming dance. Isla gladly accepts the ruse, because if anyone can make her into a desirable girlfriend, Emory can! There's just one small problem.
Isla's little crush on Emory might be exactly full blown. And a homecoming fake date with him could push her over the edge to possibly uttering the "L Word!"
Isla can't afford another heartbreak so soon after the last one. She will have to resist his charms, refuse to look into those dreamy eyes, and above all else, not make the mistake of letting him kiss her.
If only she hadn't let her guard down at the end of the night, under the light of her porch in a toe-curling kiss moment of weakness. And now, after months of Break-Up Support Group therapy, and with a heart fully on the mend, Isla has just handed it over to a guy who knows full well just how to break it.

Promo Post ft Giveaway- CALCULATED RISK by Rachael Duncan

Title: Calculated Risk
Author: Rachael Duncan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 7, 2016
I thought the ring on my finger would do the trick and keep men away. All I wanted was to save my heart from shattering--again. The truth is, I'm not married. The ring was just a ploy--a ploy to keep me safe, protected from pain.
But then Marcus Riley came along with his goofy pick-up lines, and he saw right through the facade. He knew the truth, and he wanted me. God help me, I wanted him too--in so many ways. But love is a risk, a painful, scary risk. One I'm too afraid to take.
He's the one risk worth taking.
But it just might come at a price.
"Once again, Rachael Duncan has delivered a novel that is impossible to put down with witty characters, suspense, and a few plot twists that will have you laughing, crying, holding your breath, begging for mercy, and/or throwing your Kindle." -5 star review from JB McGee
"Calculated Risk did not disappoint, its was beautifully written, full of love, angst, heartbreak and some suspense." -4.5 star review
"I read this book within 4 hours! I love everything about this book!!" -5-star review
I want to yell. I want to cuss. I want to hit and lash out at them in the most violent of ways, but I’m too broken. Because in the last few minutes, all of my dreams came crashing down. What I once thought was perfect was all a lie. A repulsive, cut you to your soul kind of lie.
Stalker: Caught ya. My brows furrow in confusion as I try to figure out what he’s talking about. After several seconds and still no clue, I text him back. Me: Caught me what? Stalker: Thinking about me. With a grin, I respond. Me: What makes you so sure I was thinking about you? Stalker: Because I was thinking of you.
