Calle Stevens wasn’t what one would call a risk-taker.

She was steady. She was even. She was . . .

Pregnant.

Oh God. How was she pregnant? Well, she knew the how part, but that wasn’t the point. Mistakes happened, condoms failed, birth control pills didn’t work, and . . . she was pregnant by a man who’d broken up with her via text and then readily offered to sign away his parental rights when she’d told him she was keeping the baby.

Her life was ruined.

She’d just been hired as an assistant coach for the professional hockey team, the San Francisco Gold. She didn’t have any family in the area, didn’t have a partner. How was she going to have a baby?

But then Cooper.

A star player for the team, he’d found out about the baby and had insisted on coming with her to her first appointment, then had held her hair back when she’d spent the majority of her time christening the porcelain goddess before coming to the second, and then the third, and the fourth and—

In fact, as much as she tried to push him away, he refused to keep his distance. And then when she was having a particularly weak moment, feeling fat and gross and completely unappealing, he held her like she was precious and . . . he kissed her.

Then didn’t stop.

Calle didn’t know what was scarier, the kiss or that she didn’t want him to stop either.

Coop is the real draw in this book, he’s the trophy every girl needs in her life. Gold medal material. Coop adores Calle secretly for two years. By the time Calles world spun around from one day to the other, he is there to help, to crawl into her mind and especially into her heart.
Coop is easy on the eye and easy to live with. Great parents, no secrets, he is just a little shy for the color of his skin. Calle is a freaking mess at the moment. Pregnant from a one-night stand with her douche bag ex she isn’t used to have help. Her father was no good, and so she has no example to do relationship and of course motherhood right. But Coop is there and he won’t go. Stubborn and steady he worms his way deep into her heart.
The Gold hockey team is like a big family and Calle notices that they are there for her if she needs them.
The book is awesome and I flew through the pages always wanting more, especially more of Coop.*sigh
But Calle is also adorable, so I don’t begrudge her Coops love.
Well written, on the point and totally clear in every description this book is a new masterpiece from Elise Faber. I love her characters and her style of writing. Can’t wait for Liam…
