I’ve spent my entire life protecting something.
I’ve played hockey my entire life. Had many girlfriends. Slept with more women than I care to mention. Been in love twice.
While one woman tried to control me by changing me into someone I no longer recognized, the other loved me not for who I could be, but for who I already was. She was my high school sweetheart but, like a fool, I walked away and let someone else take my place.
Now she’s back and even more beautiful than I remembered. But one glance tells me she’s guarded. At seventeen, I asked for something she wasn’t ready to give away. Today… I’d settle for holding her hand.
At one time she trusted me with her heart and I broke it. Now, I’ll do whatever it takes to convince her to let down her guard and give me a chance to prove I’m worthy of being trusted with it again.
I was the first boy she ever kissed. And after all these years, I want to be the man she kisses for the rest of her life.
I have never read Rhonda James before reading this series. I had to read it because I love the sport of hockey. Then reading a love story, sexy and they play hockey. That’s a hat trick in my book.
The writing flow and pace were perfect. The story line was great and I enjoyed the premise.
I loved this second chance at romance book. When I read about Scott before, I did not like him. I never thought I would. Then I go and read this book and I fell in love with him. When the book opens I wanted to junk punch him. I know whiplash, right? Hate him then love him. Why do teenage/young adult boys always do stupid things?
Scott and Skylar never got over each other. They dated back in high school. They broke up and moved on. Or so they thought. So when they see each other again because Skylar has a job to do in following him around to write an article and photo shoot.
I loved and adored Skylar from the moment she entered. Just from her personality, she would be someone I would like to be friends with. She did not have the best upbringing in her mother, but she rolled with it and didn’t let it drag her down. She was so strong and smart. She is so many young women. We all have self-doubt, well then the one person she could count on blew it up even more. I could identify with her.
This book gave me the warm and fuzzies. I loved it from start to finish. I was only disappointed when it ended. I wanted so much more these two. They have great friends and confidants. Awesome teammates and one horrid ex-girlfriend. Save My Heart is told in both Scott and Skylar points of view. This is my favorite in the series thus far. Now I want Jordan’s book. I would love to read about him.
