Eden Christiansen has spent years getting her younger brother Owen out of scrapes. When Owen is drafted into the NHL and begins to really live the lifestyle of a person who suddenly has lots of wealth, Eden doesn't know how she will keep him grounded. Her job at the paper isn't very exciting as she's writing obituaries and longs to be a real journalist. She keeps encountering Jace Jacobson, Owen's team captain, and the pair soon finds themselves bickering. When Owen is critically injured during a game, Eden and Jace spend time waiting on news at the hospital. There she discovers what has the potential to be a career breaking story, and having started to see a different side of Jace, enlists his help in the pursuit of the story. Yet the closer she gets to Jace, the more that she questions her own intentions. Will they figure out answers to their questions?
I really enjoyed this book. I loved the chemistry between Jace and Eden. I also loved the tidbits of truth from both John and Ingrid. I thought that Eden did need to learn to let go of her brother and give him a chance to make his own mistakes. I'm looking forward to the next novel in this series.
I read this book for pure pleasure as part of the Tyndale Summer Reading Program. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
