What’s It All About:
“One attraction – a secret kept between friends for years.
That’s all it took to start one of the biggest love affairs to hit the NY Otters since Gavin and Myla. After getting his heart stomped on by a cheating ex-wife, Will Crosby doesn’t know what he’s going to do next, but it’s not a relationship. Instead, he throws his entire self into the net, guarding it with his life. After all, he is the goalie.
Everything is finally coming together in his life until the cute bartender with her smart mouth and huge smile gets the better of him, right as the playoffs are around the corner.
Crosby now has to prove himself not only to his team, but also to the girl who has stolen his heart.”

When it comes to the Shots of Goal series, this is by far my favorite. Kristen let’s the characters radiate off the page, and it leaves you blinded with love for them. I loved the interaction with older characters, but also the building of this relationship. We had seen little snippets in other books, but this book soared in making this about Crosby and Jordan.
Crosby was such a dynamic character, who you couldn’t help but fall in love with. He was a man who was complex in and out of bed, which may surprise you in the best ways possible. Jordan was simplistic in a way that worked so well. She is like every girl out there who works for a living, but is just looking for someone to love and to love her. These characters work so well together, building a bomb that goes off with such a big bang, that it will leave you in the dust wanting more.
