Can a spirited,
down-to-earth influencer get an uptight hockey player out of his
I am a warrior. That’s been my motto since I recovered from a near-death accident when I was younger. Now I enjoy my nice, settled life in Dallas playing pro hockey—a boring life is better than being dead. I’m not a party guy or an adventurer; I like my routine and peace and quiet. So being traded to New York is the worst possible change that could happen. And meeting unfiltered and fascinating Sara Carrington throws my life into even more chaos.
I’ve been considered weird my whole life, which is why I’m still a virgin, but I’ve turned it into a career with my YouTube videos. Who knew people would love watching me talk about my zits, taste-test meatless burgers, and try to learn TikTok dances! Now I’m launching a podcast. Getting hockey star Josh Heller as a guest will help gain listeners for sure. I expect a bearded jock with no teeth and nothing to say, but I get a hot as H-E-double-hockey-sticks grouch with a surprisingly dirty mind. My mission to make him laugh is successful, but I want to know why he’s so uptight underneath that panty-dropping smile. Maybe I can teach Josh to have some fun . . . and maybe he can teach me a thing or two along the way. . . .
Oh, how I love Kelly Jamieson and her amazing writing talent. With each book I read I meet fun characters who earn a place in my heart while reading their stories. This is the story of Sara, the hockey fan and vlogger, and Josh, the hockey player who just got traded to a team in Sara’s town. I loved their first meeting, their first podcast, their first date, their first everything. I loved seeing how their relationship went from strangers to even more.
Sara loves to be spontaneous and Josh needs a schedule. The saying of opposites attract is so true in this case. I love seeing how they make each other better when they are together. They are able to push each other to be better people, to love each other, and to learn to respect each other. Both characters open their hearts and their souls to each other while still staying strong in their own ways.
You Had Me At Hockey is not a mushy book but there is fun romance, sweet loving, and open hearts. While it shows that it is part of a series, the hockey team is the common tie. The book can be read as a standalone.
