Rainey has been crushing on Mark since she was a kid but after embarrassing herself at 16 she's been avoiding him. When he comes to coach her kids at the rec center, these two can't seem to keep their hands off each other. Sometimes funny, light hearted romance.

Time Out
4 Stars

Returning to his home town of Santa Rey, NHL coach Mark Diego intends on helping out with reconstruction after a devastating fire. He soon discovers that this includes helping out at the local rec centre where Rainey Saunders, his childhood friend and the woman he rejected at the tender age of 16, is now the sports coordinator. When Rainey and Mark meet again, tempers flare and sparks fly, but can old hurts heal as quickly as their passion burns?

A sweet and spicy story with, thankfully, a minimum of sports description.

Mark and Rainey’s encounters are scorching hot and although they have some angsty scenes, these do not overwhelm the story.

Rainey is justifiably wary of allowing Mark back into her heart, but he is so sexy that she cannot resist him for very long. Mark rapidly realizes that Rainey is the best thing that ever happened to him and it is really fun to watch him grovel and squirm to get back in her good graces.

Aside from the romance, Mark’s scenes with the teenage girls and their issues with clothes, boys and sex are hilariously funny and only add to both his charm and that of the book as a whole.

My one small caveat is that the ending feels rushed and could have had an epilogue. All in all, another hit from Jill Shalvis. ( )

Fun and fast read. The ending was a little abrupt, but maybe just because I could have kept on reading. Love this author's voice. ( )

Fabulous! Jill Shalvis hockey = Sandy loves it! I don't think I've ever read a Shalvis I didn't like. This book had great characters, some laugh out loud moments and enough heat to set off the smoke detectors. I dunno, maybe mine are just cheap. Great read! ( )
