The moment everything changed didn’t happen in that cliché rockets-red-glare kind of way, it happened in the form of a waking nightmare. I caught my husband, my high-school sweetheart, the father of my children, balls deep in a sordid affair.
That was when I gave up on men and love.
I didn’t count on the NHL’s golden boy, the beautiful, arrogant Cooper Stone turning my life and my hockey rink upside down.
My kids are why I wake up in the morning.
Hockey is what Cooper breathes for.
We’re from different worlds and places in our lives but when our hearts collided something so wrong and different turned into something so right.
I started the Something So series in the middle. I read books two and three, Something So Perfect and Something So Irresistible, first. I loved both of them and how they were connected by family and hockey. Something So Perfect was about the oldest son Matthew. Something So Irresistible was about his younger sister Allison. Knowing that I loved both of these books, I had to go back and read their mom and stepfather’s story. I needed to know how Parker and Cooper’s story began.
Parker and Cooper’s relationship started off with fireworks. I thought it was going to be an enemies to lovers story, but the enemy part didn’t last long. They went from hating each other to into each other in a moment. That wasn’t hard to believe because they had instantaneous chemistry. Parker and Cooper got each other physically and emotionally almost immediately. They had such a special connection.
Parker was a great role model for women who have loved and divorced. She did everything she could to make her kids’ lives the best they could be in a divided household. Parker put their feelings first when dealing with her ex. I thought that was very gracious of her. I loved how strong she was mentally and emotionally. She didn’t need a man, but Parker found a great one.
My biggest surprise in this book was Cooper. After seeing what a family man he was in the first two books, I wasn’t expecting the dominating personality he had. I loved the gruffness he had. His sentences and the way he spoke was really cool. Not that he still wasn’t that amazing family man. He was from the get-go. Cooper’s interactions with Parker’s kids not only stole her heart but mine as well. He made this romance in this story.
Obviously, I loved this book. A man falling for a single mom and her kids is pretty priceless. Add in Natasha Madison’s amazing writing and humor and it couldn’t have been anything but a home run. Or maybe I should say goal since this is a hockey book…
If you’re a fan of sports romances, you really must read Natasha Madison’s Something So series. You won’t regret it!
