Hooking Hannah (book review)
About the book:
Watching her twin sister deal with being a hockey wife putting up with moves across the country and injuries has made Hannah Howard determined not to date hockey players. Ever. When she’s introduced to gorgeous center Scott Richards after an all-star game, though, her resolution is tested. She's pushed into going out with him afterward, but as their chemistry rockets off the charts that night, Hannah begins to wonder if her hands off hockey players rule is about to go up in smoke.
Scott, a star playing for New York, is tired of puck bunnies and playing the field and longs for that home and family stuff he’s heard about. When he spots stunning Hannah across the room, those visions start solidifying in his head and he becomes determined to win her over, using his best techniques both in and out of bed to snag her for his future. Hannah's reticence means some fancy footwork, though, and not the kind he’s used to on the ice.
Now Hannah must decide if Scott is worth the worry and uncertainty that comes with dating a player. Scott, for his part, needs to go after the most important goal of his life: making Hannah his forever.
I read this book in one short afternoon. It was just a quick fun read. There wasn't a ton of time for character development... but I was still given enough to absolutely fall in love with Scott. On top of being a hot hockey player... he was just a sweetie (don't tell his team mates!). I could completely understand Hannah struggling with her "no dating hockey players" rule once she met Scott. Cassandra Carr just writes these great little romance novellas. LOVE.
