In high school they were the perfect couple—until the day Georgia left Leo in the cold… 

Hockey player Leo Trevi has spent the last six years trying to do two things: get over the girl who broke his heart, and succeed in the NHL. But on the first day he’s called up to the newly franchised Brooklyn Bruisers, Leo gets checked on both sides, first by the team’s coach—who has a long simmering grudge, and then by the Bruisers’ sexy, icy publicist—his former girlfriend Georgia Worthington.

Saying goodbye to Leo was one of the hardest things Georgia ever had to do—and saying hello again isn’t much easier. Georgia is determined to keep their relationship strictly professional, but when a press conference microphone catches Leo declaring his feelings for her, things get really personal, really fast.

Thoughts: I’m a HUGE Sarina Bowen fan, so when I received a copy of this book I knew it was going to be so good and I was right, but not for the reasons I thought.

One of my absolute favorite tropes in romance is second chance loves. So watching Leo and Georgia as they come face to face after Georgia broke Leo’s heart back in high school was one of the best reading experiences I’ve had.

One of the things I loved about these two was the fact that they never fell out of love with each other, but there was something that happened their senior year that impacted them both. Something they never dealt with. Now however, faced with their emotions and as adults they realize they need to deal with it if they have any chance of getting what they lost back.

On top of that Leo has to deal with a coach who hates his guts…and is Georgia’s dad.

Then there’s all of the hockey drama that is happening around him. It’s a lot for him to deal with, but, and this is why I loved Leo so much, the hockey stuff can disappear but so long as he has Georgia he has everything.

If you’re a fan of second chance romances then you won’t want to miss this one, as it’s one of the best ones I’ve read this year.
