A lovely refreshing read
on 13 February 2016
This was a really lovely read. I enjoyed the writing style and the slow burn romance between Ryke and Kate. There is very little sex in this book but it wasn't needed. I found it refreshing that neither were thinking they were in love so early on. It felt realistic how their relationship progressed.
Ryke and Kate meet at grief counselling. Kate lost her baby 18 weeks into her pregnancy after being abandoned by the father. Two years ago, Ryke had lost his wife in a car accident. Ryke is at a different stag of grief to Kate. He has come to terms with his loss and of course we learn that his marriage was not that happy. Kate has struggled with her loss. Losing the baby has made her scared to have sex or a relationship again. Ryke offers her a job being his PA and they are attracted to each other but both holding back.
I liked both Ryke and Kate and I liked the pacing of this romance. If I had one criticism, it would be that sometimes the timeline jumped forward and would leave me a bit confused at the start of a chapter. This book was written a few years ago so after looking up the author, I'm pleased to see there is another book about this couple which I'm going to read and other books in this series about other Hockey players. Not that there was much Hockey in this book but I recommend it.
