Synopsis

Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never even met?

Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch–an anonymous virtual assistant service–is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.

Although it’s against the rules for her to check his file, she’s 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting…until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.

Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He’s still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth–that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won’t show her pretty face.

But it’s nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can’t fix. Hailey can’t resist the offer. Matt can’t resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn’t have to. Fire up the kiss cam!

Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.

Review

While I enjoyed the first standalone in the WAGS series, I have to say I LOVED this one. Hailey and Matt’s story was sweet, and fun, and full of heartfelt moments. Both are recently divorced and neither is out looking for a relationship but even when they didn’t know each other and only communicated anonymously through her exclusive virtual assistant service they were drawn to each other.

Once Matt gets a glimpse of the woman who has digitally held all his thoughts he knows he can’t let it go. He wants are and isn’t afraid to pursue what he wants. I loved Matt! LOVED! He was caring, hot, sweet, alpha, and an amazing dad to his two little girls. Then there is Hailey. She is an ultimate hockey fan and if you have ever fangirled before then you can just imagine the excitement she feels when one of her idols wants her. I found her adorably¬†awkward and loved when she would get shy. She was never boring or dull but her skittish behavior around him seemed to only add to her charm,

If you want a book that just will make you smile but with a heavy does of heat added in than give this one a go.
