Elli Fisher has never thought she was good enough. Let it be her job, her weight, her love life, nothing, she was convinced she couldn’t do anything right. She had walked through life for the past six years in a daze, never thinking that life could be good again after the abuse she endured from her ex boyfriend. She is lonely, sad, and depressed, that is until she meets Shea Adler. After doing a promotional shoot for the NHL team, the Nashville Assassins, she meets the hunky hockey player who shoots a puck, shattering her world.
Shea Adler was tired of the life he was living outside of the rink. The girls, the money blowing, the drinking, everything had to stop and it all did when he met Eleanor Fisher. He had never met anyone like her. She is feisty, witty, shy, and simply gorgeous. When he laid eyes on her, it was as if he was taking the hardest hit of his life into the boards, and he had to have her.
Elli is a little skeptical of Shea, but he knows that they were meant to be together, and he needed her in his life. But Elli just doesn’t understand what Shea could see in her. She is overweight, loud, and not even that pretty, so why would someone so gorgeous and so amazing want to be with her? It seemed that no matter how hard she tried to shake Shea off, he wasn’t going anywhere, and for the first time Elli didn’t feel alone.
But could Elli throw her insecurities out the window and love Shea with everything inside of her? Or will she let a past relationship, and her family ruin any chance of her being happy?
Would Elli miss her shot at love?
This is the ultimate *Gordie Howe hat trick* book for any hockey lover. There is fighting and lots of assists and of course it ends with a score….
This is a story that readers can really connect with. The emotional scenes between Shea and Ellie were so real I thought I was in the corner watching it play out.
I loved the aspect of the “fan girl” not only meeting her sports idol, but then have him start chasing after her. I laughed out loud when he asked what her dogs name was and she didn’t want to admit that the dog was named after him. That is just one example of the humor that makes this book shine.
Ellie has not had an easy life. She has many obstacles that she learns to overcome. We get to watch this take place over the course of this story. She learns that true love is worth fighting for.
Shea is just the complete package. He is patient and understanding with Ellie as she struggles to overcome her insecurities. He is never afraid to express his feeling to her. He makes sure that she feels loved and secure.
This is a long story, which I really loved. There were lots of up and down moments. It’s not a typical romance with one conflict and resolve. These two characters are on a journey of battling real life issues with a lot of obstacles getting in the way.
The secondary characters in this book were well developed and added a great support dynamic to the story line. It was easy to fall in love with Shea’s family and Ellie’s friends.
This book is really the whole package. You get romance, humor, steamy sex, drama, and then it all wraps up with a great conclusion. I am amazed that this is Toni’s first book. She has come out in a huge way. I can’t wait to read more from her. Don’t hesitate for a moment to grab this book. Every girl deserves to have her own Shea Adler.
