Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Elli Fisher has never thought she was good enough, let it be her job, her weight, her love life, nothing. That is until she meets Shea Adler. After doing a promotional shoot for the NHL team, the 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 was 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.

Can 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.

My Review:
Shea Adler is number one in the world of Hockey, as leading scorer in the NHL (National Hockey League) he has fans everywhere and has become accustomed to receiving the attention of being popular amongst his fans. Ellie Fisher is just another women with dreams and ambition, she has made a name for herself with her new photography company. When she is hired to photograph the Assassins team’s portraits this proves to be a big dream come true. As one of the biggest Shea Adler fans known to man this is a once in a lifetime chance for Ellie. Little did either of them anticipate the sparks that would fly when these 2 meet?

I love this story from the get go, the past has hardened Ellie and has left her with big baggage. Shea is perfect to sort through all her said baggage, and discard anything unwanted. Solo each of there personalities are incredible loveable, but when they are united it creates a storyline that will you and other readers panting and breathless.

Readers be prepared this book is extremely long and once you have started reading it you will dedicate yourself for the long haul. The rollercoaster romance is definitely full of emotion and heart ache that will have you experiencing it through the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and found it to be wonderfully written.

My Rating:
