He’s playing hurt. She’s laying low. And they’re both flirting with disaster.

“Kelly Jamieson is my go-to author for hockey romance.”—Jami Davenport

Chase: The last thing I’d ever want to do is let my team down. After overcoming my bad-boy reputation, I was dominating on the ice. But things aren’t going so well this season, and even my parents think I’m partying again. Now I’m really worried about my career. The only bright spot in my life is the Twitter flirtation I’ve struck up with pop princess Jordyn Banks. Turns out she’s a huge hockey fan—and she’s willing to wager a date on her favorite team. . . .

Jordyn: Even though I’m an L.A. fan now, I’ve always had a soft spot for the Aces, since I grew up in Chicago. Then I lose a bet to Chase Hartman, and suddenly I’m up close and personal with a pro athlete who’s anything but soft. Not only is Chase the hottest guy I’ve ever met, he’s secretly super sweet. As if I had time for a relationship . . . yeah, right. But when I suddenly have nothing but time on my hands, he’s the only one who understands. Now, with both of our careers at stake, Chase is tempting me to put my heart on the line too.

I loved the idea of 2 people, both at what should be the top of their games, and both dealing with the little imperfections and challenges that life throws at you...and learning to live when those challenges are thrown at you, and balance a career and a relationship.

A bet, a single date, a conversation on Twitter...that turns into so much more, but with 2 people who live in different worlds and on different sides of the country.

How do they work it out?  I think, and this is what I really liked about this story, is it is about people who are more alike than different.  About 2 people who have the same fears of their success and what losing it might mean, so when they are faced with choices, it brings them closer...even when it seems to pull them apart.

I enjoy stories when I am pulling for the characters while wondering how they are ever going to make it work.  This was one of those stories, and I recommend it.
