A Bookworm Review by Ana
I give this book 5 stars!
To love or to hate? What can you do whrn your heart gets in the way….
Have a look at the blurb:
It was only supposed to be a one-night-fling. Hell, it wasn’t even supposed to be that. I knew the cardinal rule. Don’t touch the coach’s daughter. And for years, I kept my hands to myself. It wasn’t difficult considering Brynne Jacobs hates my guts.
She can’t stand being in the same room as me – except for that one night. A night that left me hell bent on having more. Having all of her.
But she took off. No text. No explanation. Not even a goodbye.
Now she’s back, but she’s not alone. She’s got a kid. A kid with all-too-familiar blue eyes and dimples.
Math might not be my strong suit, but a quick calculation and I know the baby is mine.
And she’s delusional if she thinks I’m going to let her keep him from me.
Damaged. Callous. Cold. Those are the words she uses to describe me. And I’ve never claimed to be anything more. But for her – for them – I want to be.
I’ve been a fighter on the ice my entire life. Now, I’m fighting for the one thing I’ve spent my life running from – family.
This lady has a way with words that can make you fall in love instantly for her books. The themes that she explores are real things that can happen to us.
Like I’ve already said in my previous reviews C.M Seabrook’s writing is simple, intense, hot and sometimes wild. The way she starts each book can make you addicted just by reading the first chapter. Been there, done that…
Second Shot is her latest release and it’s an amazing book. Let me just give you one big advice, I totally recommend you to read Second Draft, because despite both books are standalones I totally advise you to read it first in order to understand this story better.
This book tells the stories of Kane and Brynne.
Kane is a defensemen in the NHL and a very good one. His mojo is one night stands with no strings attached. Until the day he got a taste of the beautiful and off-limits Brynne. He has wanted her for so long but she is the coach’s daughter so he can’t… And that night he…
Brynne had lost her brother and since that day she’s not the same girl. She feels incomplete without him. When Kane talked about her brother in an interview she needed to confront him and tell him everything she thinks of him. That she hates him and want nothing to do with him. But what we think we want and what our body desire are two different things.
After one wild night she disappears and when she returns one year later…
Dayum what a book this was… We can find love, friendship, loyalty, family but also loss, devastation, mad people.
The plot is amazing and I loved the fact that the book has insights of the characters pasts, this way we areable to understand the story better.
The interaction between the characters is intense, raw, wild but sometimes sweet and passionate. The cat and dog mechanics is not only hilarious but also frustrating and crazy.
I simply love a book that can awake so many emotions at the same time. And get ready for some hot stuff into the mix. Can’t wait for the next book from this series.
Thank you C.M. Seabrook for this amazing masterpiece.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
