Because sometimes love is the hardest game of all…
Sammie Reigler is done with men. At least, with one man in particular: her ex-husband. She fell head-over-heels in love, blindly jumped into marriage—and promptly had her heart broken when her husband served her with divorce papers while he was overseas. She picked up the shattered remnants of her life and took their daughter back home to Baltimore, where she started a new life working as a teacher—and playing hockey for the Chesapeake Blades. Now if only she could ignore the emptiness that haunts her in the middle of the night…
Nobody who knew him would call Jonathan Reigler a coward, but that was exactly what he was. Two years ago, at one of the lowest points in his life, he walked away from the only woman who ever mattered—and lost a piece of his soul in the process. Now it's time to win his family back, and he'll stop at nothing to regain the love and trust of the one woman who means more to him than life itself.
This book gave me all the feels. I can only imagine what Jonathan went through in his deployment, the demons he lives with for doing what he had to do. It was messed up, what he did to Sammie and Claire but I’m glad he finally manned up. I so love the girls of Blade. They are so entertaining. I hope Shannon's story is next. I just want to hear what else comes out of her mouth.
3.5 stars. Loving Hard is the second book in the Chesapeake Blades series. This is a series involving a semi-pro female hockey team. While this book is part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. As with the author's other books, the action is hot and steamy, so definitely 18+.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author did a good job of giving depth, thoughts, and emotions to these characters. As a hockey fan, I always like the hockey action, but like how this book also highlighted that off the ice the players are real people with issues just like the rest of us. I look forward to reading more of this series!
