Always a wingman . . .
Owen McConnell is used to being ignored. After all, it's only when he appears as the Colorado Avalanche's team mascot that he gets all the attention. When the costume is off, women tend to gravitate toward his famous hockey player friends. But after he meets lovely, damaged Paige Adams, he knows he can be the star player for her. She's raising funds for the hospital burn unit, and Owen's determined to help her out---and sweep her off her feet.
The burn unit has been near and dear to Paige's heart ever since the doctors helped her after a vicious attack. Yet the scars---both emotional and physical---haven't faded as much as she'd hoped. She's closed herself off from relationships, and the thought of opening up is terrifying. But Owen's sexy charm might be just the push Paige needs to start loving again.

Dropping the mask
Jennifer Snow’s fun hockey series continues in Maybe This Summer. We all have masks we hide behind, such as it were. In the case of Owen McConnell it is in the form of the Avalanche mascot Bernie, a large, fluffy St. Bernard. Paige Adams, on the other hand, hides behind turtlenecks and scarves. Together they will see that letting their masks fall is the most healing of all. If anything, this book was too short. I wanted to see more of Paige and Owen’s relationship develop. I’m hopeful we will see more of them in future books to see how things are progressing.
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novella.
MAYBE THIS SUMMER
Two hearts find each other just when they need it most! Jennifer Snow brings us a short & sweet novella from her Colorado Ice series. Owen might only be a friend of the main Westmore family of this series, but I think he might just be my favorite guy yet! He's a truly nice guy who more than deserved this happily ever after!
Colorado Avalanche mascot Owen McConnell might be the star of the show when he's in his over-sized Saint Bernard costume entertaining the NHL crowds, but when he's just being himself, he feels like he's the unseen guy around a bunch of hockey stars. He's lived a lot of life in years and he's ready to settle into the niche that will finally make him happy ... and with one visit to a charity function meeting, he thinks he might have found it ... or more like HER!
Paige Adams puts her whole life into raising money for the Burn Treatment Center that helped her so much after a life-altering attack she was the victim of. She's looking to partner up with the Avalanche for some fund-raising ... and when she meets Owen, she does her best to hide that she's affected by him. Little does she know that he has set his sights on her and will do just about anything to get a chance with her!
I love this series!
I love this series!
What I love the most about Jennifer's books are the smart, realistic characters. What I also love the most is how the story pulls you in from page 1 and ya can't put it down.
This story is no exception!
I felt for Owen right from the beginning. Injured while in the Marines, he had to give up his hockey career due to the injury.
As you can imagine, that dealt his self-esteem a major blow. It seemed he was pulling the short straw, so to speak, and I was really rooting for him!
Similarly, Paige had her own story which left her with issues of her own (won't spoil it for ya). She presented a very tough exterior, and I honestly wasn't sure how to feel about her at first, but as the story went on, I was really rooting for her too!
All in all, and true to form, this was a perfect ".5" addition to the series, and I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
