My d*ck never got me in half as much trouble as my heart…
We were high school sweethearts. I was head over heels for her and no one could tell me we weren’t going to last forever. College? Going pro? My family’s money? None of it mattered. She was all I needed.
Then she ripped my heart out. But I’m not going to let that happen again.
She’s back. Invading my life and acting like she was the wronged one. The pain is still there, but I can’t keep my eyes off her. I can’t stop thinking about her and how much was left unsaid between us. Being this close is making me question everything I thought I knew about her.
This time everything will be on my terms. Everything…
Review by Susan:
This is the third book in the series, it could be read as a standalone but I do suggest that you read the prequel novella first as it gives an insight into the group of friends and also sets this book up perfectly.
The story follows Avery and Emmett, childhood sweethearts, everyone thought they would last the distance and get married, but one fateful night and a misunderstanding brought everything crashing down. Four years later, Emmett is still feeling the hurt and betrayal but being thrown together with Avery again brings a host of other feelings to the surface. Can Avery get through to Emmett and tell him the truth about that night? Can Emmett forgive and forget and get the happy ever after with Avery? You will have to read to find out!
Told over a few weeks and in dual point of view, the reader is put through the ringer emotionally. I was sucked straight into the story and spat out at the end, I absolutely devoured this book in one sitting, at times I didn’t know how they would be able to move past that fateful night or the truth. The author does an amazing job as I felt I was there with them and felt every emotion Avery and Emmett did. I absolutely love this series and can’t wait for the next book, this is one of my favourite hockey series so far! 5 Stars
Maya Hughes can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.
I’m the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can’t breathe and traveling with my family.
