Goodreads: Eden Christiansen never imagined her role as her younger brother Owen’s cheerleader would keep her on the sidelines of her own life. Sure, it feels good to be needed, but looking after the reckless NHL rookie leaves little time for Eden to focus on her own career. She dreamed of making a name for herself as a reporter, but is stuck writing obits–and starting to fear she doesn’t have the chops to land a major story. If only someone would step up to mentor Owen . . . but she knows better than to expect help from team veteran and bad-boy enforcer Jace Jacobsen.Jace has built his career on the infamous reputation of his aggressive behavior–on and off the ice. Now at a crossroads about his future in hockey, that reputation has him trapped. And the guilt-trip he’s getting from Eden Christiansen isn’t making things any easier. But when Owen’s carelessness leads to a career-threatening injury and Eden stumbles upon a story that could be her big break, she and Jace are thrown together . . . and begin to wonder if they belong on the same team after all.
Ope’s Opinion: This is the second book of the Christiansen Family. It is so captivating from the beginning to the very end. I enjoyed not only the main characters, but all the secondary people as well.
Eden and Jace feel like real people with flaws and misunderstandings. It is a predictable story of their romance, but the bumps along the way made me not want to put the book down.
Susan May Warren brought God into the story without making it feel preachy or pushy. You could see the characters question their faith and question God. You could also see their faith grow in each other and in God.
I am ready for another Susan May Warren book!
