I only have one love now—the home furnishings business I’m building into an empire. Maybe money and success can’t love me back, but they keep what’s left of my heart safe. One-night stands are my way of scratching the occasional itch I get for something more. And no one’s better for that than a sexy as sin hockey player I’ll never see again after one very hot night together.
I used to love two things: hockey and women. But now my nieces and nephew are my top priority, because I’m raising them after tragedy stole their parents. Somehow I balance single parenthood and my career as a forward for the Chicago Blaze. There’s no time for women, until I get knocked on my ass by Abby Daniels. She’s everything I’ve ever wanted, but her devastating past may end us before we even get started.
There’s something incredibly heartwarming and endearing about a single hockey player who embraces his family; becoming the caretaker of his nieces and nephew. He’s not alone, he has help, but Luca is unique in his spirit and conviction. In Luca, Brenda Rothert creates a sweet and sensitive man who stole my heart from page one. But, this is also very much Abby Daniels story. A woman show has survived the unimaginable. In Luca, Abby will find the man who makes her heart beat, and scares the beejesus out of her.
I absolutely adored this book and am solidly in love with this series. When Abby and Luca meet and decide to pursue something a bit more then the originally intended one night stand, it appears to be magical. It doesn’t take long for these two souls to recognize what they have, but Abbys’ heartbreaking history gets in the way. But Luca knows ho to reach her, and thankfully Abby is smart enough to see her second chance in this amazing family.
I’m relatively new to Brenda Rothert and I am in awe of her storytelling. If you love sports romance, DO.NOT.MISS.THIS book. this series.
