Four years ago, my dreams were shattered in an instant.
I tried to pick up the pieces and glue them back together the best I knew how, but something was always missing.
A father for my two girls.
But then, Brody Murphy landed on my doorstep, literally. He was a carefree, playful hockey player who barged into my life and messed with my head. He left me more confused than I had ever been.
What if the one thing I thought I needed was the only thing holding me back?
FOUR AND HALF STARS
I love athletic men and when you throw in a protective sweet guy… I’m all swoony!!!
Brody is a 27 year old goalie for the Minnesota Wilds. Hockey IS his life. A bachelor at heart he finds little time outside of hockey for a social life. He’s living his dream.
Kacie is a single 24 year old mom of twin girls. Due to circumstances she currently lives with her mom, who owns a bed and breakfast. To assure she’s never dependent on someone else again she is getting her nursing degree.
Through a series of events Brody ends up at Cranberry Inn for a couple of days. Brody and Kacie strike up a friendship which slowly progresses into more. Kacie is extremely hesitant to move forward with their relationship for several reasons: (1) her past, (2) her girls and (3) knowing her life won’t fit in with Brody’s career.
Room for You takes place while Brody is in the off season and has some time to spend building a relationship with Kacie and the twins, who he affectionately refers to as the Twinkies.
I was satisfied with the ending until I flipped the page and noticed the epilogue. UGH!!! The epilogue was a cliffhanger. Luckily, for me, I had book 2 waiting on my kindle.
While the angst is low, unless you read the epilogue, my jaded self really enjoyed this one. It was nice to not stress over IF the characters were going to get together. And even though it was “sweet” it wasn’t cheesy.
2 part series
