From USA Bestseller Natasha Madison comes a brand new Hockey series The Only One.
Being traded to Dallas was a dream come true. I had everything I wanted, my game had never been better, and my wife was due to have our baby any day now.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Only One Kiss was adorable. Single dad Ralph is struggling to hold together his hockey career and raise his infant daughter solo after his girlfriend died in childbirth. He’s got some major guilt about that relationship that he is hanging onto and the only girl he wants in his life is baby Ari. But to get sponsorships, Ralph needs to ramp up his non-existent social media presence. And Candace is the best social media manager around. Sparks fly from the moment the two meet, but just as he’s not interested in dating, she doesn’t date clients. Except, of course, they can’t stop thinking about one another and ultimately decide it might be worth the risk.
What I really liked about this story is that the drama that leads to Ralph and Candace splitting up had everything to do with his late girlfriend — but not in the way I was expecting. I shed a few tears when Ralph told his backstory and I felt for both of them. How hurt Candace was, and how clueless Ralph was. It lead to a wonderful reconciliation and the epilogue was the cutest proposal ever.
I really liked Candace and Ralph as characters. They were very sweet with one another, and kinda dirty behind closed doors! Their relationship is very genuine, and they both have issues that they work though together. There are a few appearances by Ethan and Zara, as well the other hockey players in the This Is series, and NM nicely sets up interest in the characters that will be the future books in the Only One series.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
