This book is fun. It's not fabulous, it's not earth
shattering, but it's fun. And there's nothing wrong with
that. As I write this, it's summer
and most of the readers I know are stocking up on fun
reads for travel and beach reads. If you're a
contemporary fan with a penchant for hockey, then this is
a great one to throw in the beach bag or plane carry-on
for a holiday flight.
There's a good focus here on the process of being a
professional hockey player - not necessarily the
technique of the game, but the baggage that comes along
with being a public entity with a private life. It's
accompanied by some twists - the book sets you up to
believe one thing about a few characters before showing
you another side to them - keeps the book interesting and
the pacing well.
I bought the chemistry between them and flew through MAYBE
THIS LOVE in a day, before immediately recommending it to my
best friend, for whom hockey books are catnip.
Hockey player Ben Westmore has some serious skills---on and
off the ice---and he's not above indulging in the many perks
of NHL stardom. When a night in Vegas ends in disaster, he
realizes two things: 1) it's time to lie low for a while,
and 2) he needs a lawyer---fast. But the smoking-hot woman
who walks into his office immediately tests all his good
Olivia Davis doesn't need anyone derailing her career---or
her dreams of starting a family---least of all a
skirt-chasing player like Ben. But soon he's unleashing a
full-court press to convince her that he's the real deal.
She's slowly falling for his sweet, rugged charm, but with
so much on the line, Olivia has to decide whether Ben can
truly change---or if he's just playing the game.
