Crossing the Line (Hot Jocks #4) by Kendall Ryan
Recovering from a pulled groin muscle isn’t exactly how I planned to spend my much-needed summer vacation.
But I’ll admit, being nursed back to health by my gorgeous friend Bailey, who’s just graduated from medical school, doesn’t exactly sound like a hardship.
We spend a week together at my family’s beach house, a week of swimming and barbecues, a week of entertaining my little cousins and sleeping right across the hall from each other. A week of watching Bailey grow closer with my mom and sisters, and my wacky but lovable grandma. A week of enjoying Bailey tending to me—which is saying something, because it involves a lot of shoving ice packs into my underwear and taping up sore muscles.
She’s funny and kind, and after just being myself for the first time in a long time, I find my walls come tumbling down. But when Bailey says she’s not looking for a relationship, I’m bound and determined to be more than just the fun hookup who sprained his groin a second time—this time with her.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This has got to be one of the sweetest, feel good, friends-to-lovers books I’ve read in a long time! I just couldn’t help but catch the feels with this one! I was swooning from the very beginning, and that feeling kept getting bigger right through to the very end! This is definitely a must read, gotta have it book!
Bailey is a strong woman, who has worked hard to get where she is, and knows what she wants out of life. Her life is full, and she has no room for a man. But Asher sure makes a woman sit up and take notice! When Asher needs her help, on his family vacation, she doesn’t hesitate to offer her assistance.
Asher has worked hard to become a NHL player, and he loves his life. But when he starts looking at Bailey, and realizing that his feelings aren’t what he is used to, he has to decide what to do about them. He also has to convince Bailey that she wants the same thing!
This story was absolutely perfect! It shows that even with pro hockey players, the face they present in public is very rarely who they really are. Asher and Bailey were everything that I expected and so much more! I enjoyed their story, as well as the glimpses we got of previous characters from the team! If you enjoy sports romance, or a good friends to lovers story, this is definitely the one for you!!!
