Series: WAGs #2
Published by Self-Published on 06/20/2017
Can you fall in love with someone you've never even met?
Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch—an anonymous virtual assistant service—is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.
Although it's against the rules for her to check his file, she's 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting... until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.
Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He's still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth—that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won't show her pretty face.
But it's nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can't fix. Hailey can't resist the offer. Matt can't resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn't have to. Fire up the kiss cam!
Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.
I really love when Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy write books together. They are just so good. It sucks when I have to put one down. If life wasn’t so consuming lately, I’d have finished this book in a heartbeat.
Stay was an excellent second installment of the WAGs series. Matt is a loveable character with an excellent sense of humor and a heart of gold. He’s an awesome dad to two adorable twin girls and I couldn’t get enough of him. Hailey is also a very likeable character. She’s a hard-working and independent co-owner of her company. She’s sweet, funny, and has a bit of a funky flair to her style.
I loved falling in love with these characters as they fell in love with each other. I couldn’t get enough of all of their encounters, especially those online or through text. Watching them get to know each other, start to date, and their journey to happily ever after was so much fun. I swooned lots and had to fan myself plenty. I couldn’t get enough of them.
I’m a huge fan of Elle Kennedy, and admittedly not really a fan of Sarina Bowen, but the two of them together is really magic. They write together so well and the chemistry just fires right off of the pages. I can’t wait to add this book to my bookshelf.
