I’ve looked forward to every book in this series, and this was no exception. Light and sexy with a hero who is easy to love, it’s a great addition to the lineup. Though the family dynamics will seem complicated to those who haven’t read about the Wynn family before, the romance stands completely on its own. I loved Harrison, the slightly goofy but extremely lovable hero whose tenacity both helps and hinders his budding relationship.
The story follows Harrison, a pro hockey player who has a lot to live up to – as part of a family that revolves around the sport, there’s plenty of pressure to perform. Harrison is a genuinely good guy with a playful side, and when a yoga instructor catches his eye, it’s not long before he’s all in. The only problem is that Arya doesn’t seem as into him, making Harrison relentless in his pursuit of getting the girl he knows is meant to be his. Though Arya is attracted to Harrison, past experiences have made her hesitant to move forward… but there’s no denying he’s the kind of guy she’s been looking for.
I love how different the personalities of each of the heroes in this series have been, and Harrison is the kind of guy you can root for from the start. It was so refreshing that he’s the one determined to convince Arya that they’re meant to be – though he might be a little overeager at times. I didn’t love Arya as much – she’s got her reasons to be guarded, but I felt like she held her silence for too long, and wasn’t as open and honest as she needed to be to start a real relationship. This is one instance where I felt like a slower burn would’ve benefited the story, just because of the dynamics of their relationship, but I enjoyed this from start to finish. I’m not sure what’s next for the Wynns, but I’d love to read more from the series. I received an ARC via NetGalley and am voluntarily leaving a review of this sports romance.

Can a hockey hunk teach a yoga instructor to be more flexible?
Even though I’m the oldest player on the farm team, I’m playing my heart out this year to prove that I have what it takes to play in the NHL.
Everyone expects me to live up to my dying hockey hero dad’s legacy, but my chances are receding every season.
What I need is to focus, but the team’s new yoga instructor is a major distraction; I’ve had my eye on her from the first time we met.
Except she’s not interested—okay, maybe actively disinterested—since I accidentally dumped her into the ocean during our paddleboard yoga class.
How can I prove to her—and to the NHL—that I’m worth taking a chance on?
Men are the last thing I need in my life.
Yoga is my priority; it helps me center myself and heal my soul.
But I can’t turn down the once-in-a-lifetime offer to be the personal yoga instructor for the local hockey team.
Sure, there are some cute players—including Harrison Wynn, who seemingly won’t take no for an answer, and whose boyish smile and sexy charm are hard to resist.
He seems genuine, and I wonder . . .
Can I put my past behind me to start a future with him?
