Spend Christmas in Glenwood Falls with this "quietly humorous, profoundly moving, and captivatingly seductive" (Publishers Weekly, starred review) romance that is "the perfect blend of hockey, heart, and heat" (Debbie Mason, USA Today bestselling author).
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, handsome---and 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.

A steamy second-chance romance!
A steamy second-chance romance!
I love Jennifer's writing. The stories all move an a great pace, they are engaging and the characters have depth and a uniqueness that isn't always found with other authors.
Jackson. My gosh. He was just absolutely perfect. But can you imagine? Having a crush on someone for all that time, and then bam! She's back in your life, every day...
But THEN, he got ANOTHER second chance that I didn't see coming, and I was really rooting for him.
Abby was put in a difficult position, what with having to look out for not only herself, but her daughter too. There were a couple of times where I wanted to slap some sense into her, but I enjoyed reading her indecision and vulnerability, and found those qualities made her more relatable.
I was introduced to characters from the first book in the series, and while this is absolutely a stand-alone, I am DYING to read the first book so I can read more Becky. She was hilarious and I can't wait to read her story!
All in all, huge fan. I can't wait to see where this series goes next!!!

Maybe This Time
Next up in Jennifer Snow’s Colorado Ice series, we get Jackson’s story. He was one of Becky’s hockey obsessed brothers in the first book, and it’s fun to delve into what made him who he is and watch him search for that happy ending! It was also fun getting a glimpse into how Becky & Neil are doing! Overall, a really fun read … sweet, yet spicy … with a great family camaraderie among the characters. Looking forward to the next book in the series!
Abigail Jansen returns home to Glenwood Falls, Colorado to raise her daughter when her marriage falls apart. After being cheated on and drug through the mud by her NHL husband, she doesn’t care if she never hears the word HOCKEY ever again.
Jackson Westmore isn’t happy to see Abby back in town. He crushed on her for years when they were young, yet couldn’t let it show because she was his best friend’s girl. Now that she’s in front of him again, will he be able to keep his feelings to himself, or will he finally get that chance he always hoped for?
When Abby’s daughter wants to try out for the junior hockey team, she’s anything but happy … but she hasn’t seen a smile on her daughters face in a long time, so she can’t bear to say no. Since Jackson is the coach, she’s now interacting with him on a regular basis … and man is he HOT!
