We were given locker rooms scenes and game scenes and while none of it may have been authentic, it felt authentic to me. We then detoured into a number of books involving non hockey players and found ourselves in Ireland.
He dated a girl from Balleycraig, Ireland, for eight years and promised he would marry her. When he left for the NHL, he was going to bring her with him, but once he arrived on U.
So he breaks up with her. He essentially leaves everyone in Balleycraig behind, including his best friend. Two years later Rory decides he has made a mistake. I thought, based on the blurb and set put, that this would be a redemption story and that Rory would have to suffer consequences of his actions in order to win over his best friend and win back his girl.
Unfortunately there was no comeuppance. Rory waltzes in. His best friend, Jake, forgives him. Erin takes him back without almost no whimper.
She had a wonderful man who was ready to commit to her, but instead she readily accepts Rory back into her life who left her two years ago. Settling into a marriage with her best friend Jake would have made more sense than sliding back into a relationship with Rory. It is a small town setting but the small town relies too much on quirky characters to give it personality such as the three brothers who seem to be an Irish version of Larry, Curly and Moe.
Rory seemed to exemplify the rich jock who treats everyone shabbily and gets only accolades in return. He never suffered or wanted for success, love, or even happiness. A disappointing entry in the Blades series. Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries and publishes with Berkley and Montlake and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty.
You can reach Jane by email at jane dearauthor dot com. Jane, you should change the grade in the tag line. I thought it was mostly used in the US and Wales but maybe I was wrong. This is too bad. I love the reunited lovers theme and if done well, it always works for me.
It had something to do with an Italian restaurant? This makes me sad. I think Martin needs to go back to hockey exclusively and stay away from Ireland and foreign accents. She just lost me when she did that.
I had hopes for this one. Sounds like some major groveling should definitely have been in order. Thanks for the review. I will give this one a pass. Did you change the layout again? I was just getting used to the new one. I love that the DA site is so uncluttered and sleek, but info is easy to find. I do miss the numbered comments though. I love this cover.

But when Rory unexpectedly returns, plans have a way of changing, no matter how hard she fights against it. Will he work his magic on her again, claiming the forgiveness he needs and the love he knows is still there? Or will Erin stick to her path and make it without the big lug? Rory promised to return to sweep Erin away to the life of her dreams in New York.
