When newly single Kate Adams is approached on the sunny deck of a California hotel by hockey star David Burke, and he invites her to dinner, she almost says no. He’s obviously younger than her. And charming. And drop dead gorgeous. But there’s also something about David that makes Kate–who hasn’t done anything spontaneous in a very long time—accepts his invitation. It is, after all, her fortieth birthday.
However, a real romance with thirty-year-old David, whose picture is in the gossip pages as often as it’s in the sports pages, is out of the question. No matter how much she wants him, it’s just too risky. But meeting Kate has been David’s lightning strike. She’s the one for him, and he has no intention of giving up on her.
So while Kate guards her fragile heart, David sets out to win her over with the same determination that drives him on the ice. And he’ll break every rule in the book if he has to.
More than a Romance, Loved it!!
I absolutely loved this book. It is a book that you will not be able to put down. Newly divorced, turning forty, Kate is ready to venture out into life again. She meets a younger, but very mature David at a bar. They have a one night stand, but they both want more. This book is just not just another romance, but so much deeper. Kate has a daughter, who is seventeen and is going through many life choices of her own. Her ex husband, whom I dislike (to put it mildly) has emotionally abused Kate through their marriage and still trying to ruin her life. Kate looks at this romance on how it will affect everyone in her life.
Jeannie Moon has outdone herself in this book, the pages just kept turning until the end. I sure didn't want it to end. This has been the best book that I have read this year. I highly recommend this book.
**I received an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion**
This is one of those stories where you root for the couple the entire book. I loved the characters, the plot line, the symbiotic relationship both Kate and David needed, and the love! It touched my heart! (It didn't hurt its setting is one of my beloved cities--Philadelphia.) There's nothing wrong with this story, and everything is so right! I highly recommend this book!
A true romance
I was lucky to get an advance copy of this book.
Kate Nicholls’ picture perfect world as a wife, mother, well known author and teacher has come to a crashing end very unexpectedly. After years of abuse her husband has left her for another woman, their daughter hates her and on her 40th birthday she slept with a 29 year old. Not just any 29 year old, a well known hockey player that her 17 year old daughter has a serious crush on.
David Burke was a player both on an off the ice, not wanting to commit to a serious relationship just yet. So when his NHL team had an away game in California, while at their hotel, his teammates issued him a challenge…get the woman at the table in bed by the end of the night. He accepts and makes his move, but what he doesn’t expect was the move he make to be one that he will never forget.
You know the magically connection you hear or read about, that some couples have? Well there is definitely one between Kate and David. But can that magic actually overcome all the odds and every roadblock placed before them as they try and figure out exactly what they want.
This book is incredible, it is beyond incredible, it is an original, realistic, breath taking, heart stopping, don’t want to put it down until I get to the last page which means I will throw food at the kids/spouse and lock my door just so I can get to the end book! It has the twists and turns, ups and downs, hate and romance that we can only dream about happening in our lives. This is by far the best book I have read in a very long time and will definitely be recommending it to everyone I know or don’t know. Jeannie Moon hit this one not just out of the park but out of the country! Now if only the story was really finished......
