Even if you’ve not read the previous two books in the series, this one works perfectly well as a standalone. And if you have read the first two, then you are going to love this one because my god it was so beautiful.
I spent the last few hours staring at my notes for this review, because where does one even begin when reviewing a brilliant Kandi Steiner book? I’m still gathering my thoughts, so I’m gonna miss stuff and there’s a good chance this sounds like gibberish at the end.
If there’s one thing that Corinne Michaels does really well, it’s write an emotionally charged story. The blurb of this book had me hooked and even though I got the gist of it from there, I was still so unsure about what was going to happen. And this book opened with pain and it was so beautifully crafted.
I’m sad that this series is over. As someone who has fallen in love with hockey through this series, I’m gonna miss these guys. But, I’ve also been so greedy for Jana and Kane’s story that to finally have it makes me beyond happy.
one. There were definitely parts that I did like, but there were also some choices that I didn’t.
Is there a trope that Teagan Hunter can’t write? Because I haven’t found it yet. This might be a new trope for Teagan, but she slayed it and I am still all in my feels. Whenever I pick up a book by Teagan, I end up awake at 2am processing my thoughts about the book because that’s when I usually finish reading it. Her books are best enjoyed in one sitting, no lie. And she knocks it out of the park with One-Timer and the wonderful relationship between Hollis and Lowell.
Oof, Kandi Steiner didn’t give me enough of a warning about how this book would make me feel. I always go into Kandi’s stories prepared to cry and/or soul’s been wrung dry. And with Fair Catch I definitely went through all of the feelings.
I never thought I’d meet a hockey hottie that could overthrow Aiden Drake as my favourite Florida Fury player, but Piper Rayne went and created Warner Langley and now Aiden has been demoted to #2. I am loving this series so much and I love that every story not only introduces us to a whole new world of hockey, but it also gives us all of these familiar faces over and over again as we see them become families and so much more.
When you put these two characters together on a drunken night in Vegas, what do you get? A shotgun wedding that turns into a marriage of convenience and a friends to lovers situation that takes something we all know and love so well, but with a spin.
Going into this book, I honestly had no idea what I was getting myself into. But let me just say that Corinne Michaels took me on a rollercoaster of emotions. One minute I was laughing and enjoying the Parkerson family shenanigans and dynamics and the next, I was weeping into my pillow. But when a book can make you feel so much and put you through that kind of chaos in 300 something pages, then you know you’re in for a treat. An emotional one, but still a book that you must have in your life.
