Brutal Love & Stanley Cups by Heather C. Myers
This is romantic, intense and entertaining. Dean and Clara met and fell in love, then Dean signed with a team on the opposite coast. Clara didn't want to have a long distance relationship, Dean didn't think to ask her to go with him, so they broke up. Now, it's 9 years later, and Dean is back and Clara's boyfriend brings her to the Gulls first game of the final round of the playoffs. She tries to disguise herself so that Dean doesn't recognize her, but he knows that it's her anyway. It causes a problem between Clara and her boyfriend, and Dean comes to her aid. And both are struggling with the feelings they still have for each other. Dean is caring, protective and determined. Clara is feisty, stubborn and brave. I love their story, it's sweet and heartwarming.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
