Just say Yes by Samantha Lind
What will it take for her to Just Say Yes?
Scott Taylor has the perfect life. He gets to fulfill his dream playing professional hockey, has a loving family, and a tight group of friends. But the one thing missing in his life is a partner to come home to. He knows exactly who he wants to fill that position– the only woman he has ever loved. The one who got away, who constantly consumes his every thought. What it would take to get her to Just Say Yes to a second chance?
Becca Phillips is an independent woman who has made her career as an ER nurse a priority in her life. She has a loving family and a best friend by her side, but she can’t seem to get over her first love, Scott. Insecurities led her to break up with him years ago when he started climbing the ranks in professional hockey and, for eight years, Becca has avoided Scott when he returns home each summer. Can she overcome her fears and allow love back into her life? All she has to do is Just Say Yes to the one and only man she has ever loved.
This is a sweet second chance sports romance, the first I’ve read by this Author.
Becca and Scott were high school sweet hearts, but Becca couldn’t handle the female attention Scott received when he became a pro hockey player and broke up with him.
After a chance meeting in their hometown, 8 years after their breakup, Becca realizes she never stopped loving him. This story is mostly about how they handle the rekindling of their relationship, along with some exciting scenes from Scott’s NHL career.
Right from the begining, Scott knew what he wanted, and did everything he could to show Becca how he felt. He was so sweet with her!
Becca is a strong, independent woman, but knows she made a mistake. She just isn’t sure what to do about it. But Scott knows!
Unlike alot of sports themed romances, this story focuses more on the second chance romance aspect, and less on the fact that Scott just happens to play hockey for a living. It makes for a more interesting story line, and the story just seems to flow better.
All told, this is a sweet, easy read that was very enjoyable. I’m looking forward to the next one, as it seems to be the beginning of a series, and would definitely recommend it to anyone that likes sports romance or second chance romances.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
