Published by: Random House: Flirt
Publication date: September 5th 2017
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Sports

In a standalone hockey romance that tugs at readers’ heartstrings, a broken ex-pro learns to live and love again—all thanks to the complicated, wonderful nurse who gives him a second chance.

Brianna Collins needs to break away from her overbearing family. Her parents expect her to “fix” her brother after a series of concussions derailed his hockey career. Unfortunately, no doctor will give him clearance to play, and she’s finished with being the person they rely on to perform a miracle that will never happen. For Bree, a six-month nursing assignment at a hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina, is the perfect escape.

Luke Daniels, former forward for the NHL’s Charlotte Aviators, has spent close to a year rehabbing a career-threatening injury—and distracting himself however he can. Worlds collide when Luke realizes that the girl from his latest one-night-stand happens to be the new nurse at the hospital where he volunteers in the pediatric unit. What’s more, Bree’s the only person who makes him excited about life again.

Despite her initial reservations, Luke can’t help pursuing sweet, beautiful Bree. Then he realizes it was her brother whose career he ended with an accidental hit, and he falls back on the thing that’s always helped suppress his demons: alcohol. But if Luke doesn’t kick his old habits, he just may lose the one thing he loves more than hockey.

My Review:

This is the fifth book in the Pilots Hockey series, but I haven’t read of the previous 4 books, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying this one.

Bree is a nurse comes from a money family, who are demanding, her brother was a hockey player injured in the game and has tried everything for the past 12 months to see if she can get him back on the ice. But she’s had enough and needs a break away from them, taking up a six month post in North Carolina.

Luke is a hockey player who suffered a bad injury, needed surgery, and is now unable to play on the ice again. He is finding this exceptionally difficult to come to terms with. He comes from a broken family, his mother is a drug addict, and has had a hard life. He volunteers at the local children’s hospital in an attempt to help them out.

Bree and Luke end up having a one night stand, unbeknownst that they work in the same children’s hospital. Bree has sworn off any attachment to hockey players, but working together and having a undeniable connection they start a no-strings relationship.

I enjoyed the story line, and liked the characters most of the time, but they did get a little annoying in places. But I also think the blurb is a bit misleading, as it really gives the whole story line away before you’ve even read the book. But if you like hockey romance, this was an ok read.
