By Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy
Release Date: June 20. 2017
Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never even met?
Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch–an anonymous virtual assistant service–is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.
Although it’s against the rules for her to check his file, she’s 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting…until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.
Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He’s still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth–that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won’t show her pretty face.
But it’s nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can’t fix. Hailey can’t resist the offer. Matt can’t resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn’t have to. Fire up the kiss cam!
Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.
Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy are back melting the ice with their latest release Stay, a hockey sports romance. This book is sizzling hot and keeps the rabid hockey romance fans glued to the game. Opening one of their hockey novels literally turns every single reader into a puck bunny looking to score a whole lot of love from their favorite player.
Matt Eriksson is more than a sensational hockey player, he’s the complete package. Recently divorced and suddenly single should be a dream come true but for Matt it’s like swimming in a bottomless pit. He’s trying to manage his demanding career while making quality time with his young twin daughters. Dealing with his ex wife is anything but pleasant. In fact it’s worst than facing off with his opponent. Another ruthless player is a piece of cake, he can beat them down and come out on top. His ex wife holds all the cards where his daughters are concerned. His grueling schedule leaves little time for himself let alone his precious children. Forget dating, it’s off the table. He can handle his ex’s insane demands and insults but he cannot handle her threats of taking his time away from his children. To obliviate some of the pressure he has hired Fetch to handle his homelife needs so he can focus on his children. This service handles all his shopping needs, pet care needs, and other chores he just doesn’t have time for. The added bonus is his anonymous, personable handler, Hailey Taylor Emery, aka HTE (hottie),anticipates his every need and jumps through hoops to meet them. When the company he hired to take care of his dog while he’s away drops the puck she steps in to take care of his dog. He’d be up a creek without a paddle without Hailey. He’s also very curious about who she really is and what she looks like. He decides to check her out on his home security feed app while he’s away. She is indeed like her name, a hottee. He wants to get to know her on a personal level. A woman has finally sparked his interest after surviving the shark infested waters known as his ex wife.
Hailey has recently gone through a divorce. Although her divorce was relatively easy and she’s still business partners with her ex husband, she’s still reeling from the hurt. Her ex husband was her childhood friend and only man she has ever been with. Dating a client is the biggest no no in her career and could ruin her business. The only problem is that it’s Matt Eriksson, the hottest player on the ice. He’s also one of the nicest men she’s ever met. Should she throw caution to the wind and take a chance on Matt? Her heart says yes and her mind isn’t far behind.
Matt and Hailey are perfect for each other. Their relationship is everything they both wanted and needed. The problem is their personal lives aren’t only theirs. They both have issues with their ex’s and their relationship could cost them everything they hold dear. How do you deal with the past, manage the present, and move forward towards the future? They will have to figure it out and STAY true to their hearts.
I absolutely loved this book. Sarina and Elle know how to create endearing characters with an engaging story that goes beyond the run of the mill romance novel. I fall in love every time I open one of their books.
