Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never even met?
Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch--an anonymous virtual assistant service--is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.
Although it’s against the rules for her to check his file, she’s 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting...until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.
Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He’s still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth--that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won’t show her pretty face.
But it’s nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can’t fix. Hailey can’t resist the offer. Matt can’t resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn’t have to. Fire up the kiss cam!
Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.
This book is #2 in the WAG's series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading series in order.
Matt has had a rough time with his divorce. Taking a chance again seems far away. Then he finds himself attracted to the app agent he chats with. Could she be someone he could learn to care about?
Hailey has always been a big fan of Matt and his hockey prowess. Is it possible that getting to know him could make her feelings stronger? There is certainly sparks a flyin'!
This series is so much fun! Every book brings laughter and heat and this was no exception. I cannot wait to see what is next!

Sweet & Sexy
Hailey and Matt are great people. They're kind and down-to-earth. She's a business owner, and he's a professional athlete. Wealth and celebrity status don't play much of a role in their lives. Friendship and family are the center of this story, and the love of hockey of course. Matt is divorced. He thinks that because of the demands of hockey on his life and time having a steady relationship isn't available for him. Hailey is also divorced. She and her ex realized they're really just friends. She's never felt that romantic spark and doesn't know if it will ever happen. Hailey and Matt are absolutely the perfect match for each other. She's almost as into hockey as he is, and he brings out her sexy side. All the supporting cast are awesome. If you read Good Boy or Him and Us, you'll be happy to see some of the previous characters make appearances. I really enjoyed Stay. The romance is mature (no manufactured drama), realistic and very hot. I recommend it.
Terrific second chance at finding love story!
This is the second book in this series and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. I love sports romance, but hockey sports romance is my favorite! I couldn’t get enough!
I loved the idea of Fetch, the virtual assistant service that Hailey co-owns with her ex-husband. I know awkward, but they had a very different relationship. They were childhood best friends that were comfortable together and then one thing led to another and they felt that the love they had for each other was enough so they got married. There really wasn’t any spark in their marriage. They were comfortable, until it didn’t work anymore. Hailey was devastated by the break up, but it just wasn’t working, she knew it wasn’t going to work, but it still hurt when Jackson wanted out.
Matt Eriksson’s story is heartbreaking as the truth comes about his marriage. He took the blame for the ending of his marriage, but there is so much more than he could ever know.
Hailey has a client Sniper87 that she has had a business relationship with for over a year and she has her suspicions that he is her fantasy man, Matt Eriksson. He has depended on Fetch for many of his needs and he is fascinated by the person he is messaging with. When he finally gets to see Hailey, via web cam, he can’t resist offering her hockey tickets and the chance to meet her in person. Hailey is a mess! She gets so nervous around Matt that she gets tongue tied and just blunders her way through. He finds it adorable.
They both have baggage from their previous relationships, he has twin daughters and the ex-wife from hell. Can they actually pursue a relationship when both of their relationships failed? Well you are going to have to read the book to find out. This book has lots of laughs, great feels and a slow burn romance that catches fire! There is so much to this story that I loved! They took their time to get to know each other. Matt pursued her and was caring and attentive. I loved the story, the characters, the great secondary characters and all the laugh out loud moments.
I highly recommend this second chance at love story!
