Jason Doyle is a top ice hockey star. Claire gets the job of photographing him for her friend Trish’s magazine. Claire and Jason feel an instant attraction but Trish needs a fiancé for the wedding of her childhood sweetheart, Jason gets elected for the role.
This story is full of humorous quips and innuendos between the two main characters. The sparks that fly between them makes for a hot romance. Jason is a glamorous sports hero while Claire is a down to earth practical photographer; her favourite saying is “I’m just the photographer”. This becomes a bit of a catch phrase as the story unfolds. The chemistry between the two is excellent.
I enjoyed the cast of characters. The best scenes are during the lead up to the wedding and the wedding itself. The story has a touch of French farce about it but this adds to the laugh out loud atmosphere.
Tracy Kelleher has invented a wonderful cast of characters to compliment the hero and heroine. The reader gets an interesting glimpse into the world of ice hockey. She is a new author to me. I hadn’t even heard her name before I bought this book. I read the back page blurb and decided to give it a try. I am very pleased I did as it entertained me from beginning to end. Tracy Kelleher packs a lot into the 218 pages.
My only tiny gripe is that Claire under-estimated herself so much. She is a bright intelligent woman, yet fails to see her own charm. Luckily the reader won’t fail the same way, because Claire is a wonderful character.
