Holy crap! How have I not discovered the writings of Crista McHugh?! I actually read this book before I read The Sweetest Seduction.
Ben Kelly and Hailey Ericksson have a past. Nine years ago, they had a one-night stand that resulted in Hailey getting pregnant and giving up her Olympic dreams. Nine years later, Hailey is chasing her Olympic dreams to be part of the Canadian hockey team and Ben Kelly hobbles back into her life.
Ben's hockey career could be over thanks to a knee injury. He's gone to the the Canadian town of Cascade to recuperate and figure out exactly what he is going to do if the knee injury ends his career.
Ben can't believe that the woman he had a one-night stand with nine years ago is here. And he's willing to do anything to get her to give him a second chance. But Hailey won't have any of it. She has made her son a promise and she will follow through at any cost. The attraction is still there after all these years but Hailey keeping their son a secret could put a damper on their growing attraction. The moment Ben finds out that he could have met his son if he only spent time at the children's hospital as part of his team's charity work, it nearly broke my heart.
I'm a sucker for second chance romances and this one will definitely go on my 'read again' digital shelf. Get ready for a quick, fun and sexy read with a side of 'break out the tissues'.
Sometimes life was about second chances, and now that he'd been given one with her, he wasn't about to let her slip through his grasp this time.
