After a brief marriage to an unfaithful, gold-digging wife, Jared Roderick is looking for the perfect good girl, and he thinks he’s found her. Sweet, quiet, prim Stephanie Clarke is exactly the woman he wants and nothing like his cheating ex. Now to convince a reluctant Steph they were meant to be together.
Steph has had enough of men controlling her life from her preacher father to her abusive boyfriend. She wants to regain the innocence she lost and ignore the ugliness of her recent past. She’s not the pure and sheltered virgin Jared thinks she is and fends off his advances despite the sizzling chemistry between them.
Jared is as determined to win Steph over as he is to win hockey games; but when his fantasy becomes tarnished, does he have the strength to skate the distance?

Broken But Loved
Awesome couple. Both the hero and heroine have there own troubles. I love how Jami D. took them both and brought them together slowly revealing their insecurities and over coming them. We all have Skelton’s in our closet and have things we aren’t proud of. Things we have grown from but wouldn’t want used against us. Jared and Stephanie are no exception to the rule. Reading about how their pasts held them back from each other yet wasn’t used against them by the other was an encouraging read. They were two very broken souls. Jared having been duped and milked dry by his recent ex and Stephanie with her past profession and abusive ex these are two people who found there way to each other against all odd. I didn’t expect anything less from Jami as she always writes such inspirational stories. Can’t wait for more to come from this AMAZING author. Jami is by far one of my top five go to authors. You can read her books over and over and walk away with a renewed happiness for yourself and the characters.
This book was soo good that I was able to finish in one day. This is the first book in a long time that has left me able to say that.
Jared is a unique character in that he is a professional Hockey player who is broke. He is divorced and has to give most of his paycheck to his ex. He wants a forever relationship and looks to a matchmaker service for help.
Stephanie is timid after having got out of an abusive relationship. She is not looking for a relationship but after meeting Jared she starts thinking about the possibility of one with him. She works for the matchmaker service he has hired to help him find is forever love. Little do they both know but the owners of the service know they are the perfect match and “trick” them into pending time getting to know one another.
They both have secrets that they are not ready to share but for Steph her secrets get out before she can share them with Jared. As they try to deal with deamons from their past they realize just how much they love one another and are the perfect match.
