She wasn’t looking for love…
Struggling to live up to the high expectations of overprotective parents and a hefty family name, Caryn Stevens only wants one Summer of Fun before she focuses on finishing her college degree. She knows her destiny—to lead her dad’s multi-million dollar business. But that plan changes forever the day she runs into—literally—sexy and single professional hockey player, Andrew Chadwick.
But love came looking for her.
Sparks instantly fly between the two, and Caryn can’t resist his charms as she discovers that Andrew has a reputation for winning—both on and off the ice. One of the most eligible singles in Toronto, Andrew could have any woman he wants, and he’s got Caryn in his sights. But, when Caryn’s parents disapprove of the match and threaten to disinherit her and his hockey team trades him to a new city, it may take more than love for the couple to survive this penalty play.
"This Piece of My Heart delivers a sweet love story that still sizzles -- a must-read for anyone looking for the perfect happily-ever-after.”
—Cara Lockwood, USA Today bestselling author of "I Do (But I Don't).”
“This Piece of My Heart is a light-hearted sports romance novel I had the opportunity to beta read. If you like hockey and romance, you will love this book.”
—Rachelle Reese, Amazon bestselling author of “Dime Store Novels.”
Could not put it down! Great Read.
Great balanced book of a budding romance and the life of a pro athlete. Not too much sports-not too much romance.
Very good light read. I could put it down & pick it up easily where I left off.
Great characters. Does not waste time on chapters getting to know each character. She just jumps right into the story line.
I will have a difficult time making it to the next release.
A fun story with a hockey theme. Caryn chooses Andrew over her family, then the twists and challenges pile on.
A story my mom or young sister can read without blushing. I wish Andrew could end up on my Canadians, but in the meantime it's a great story watching the couple grow.
An excellent get away read for a vacation or rainy weekend. Caryn and Andrew struggle to find the balance between external forces (parents & NHL) and a relationship.
Will love win? I suggest you find out!
