Summary

Summary

Eden Christiansen never imagined her role as her younger brother Owen's cheerleader would keep her on the sidelines of her own life. Sure, it feels good to be needed, but looking after the reckless NHL rookie leaves little time for Eden to focus on her own career. She dreamed of making a name for herself as a reporter, but is stuck writing obits--and starting to fear she doesn't have the chops to land a major story. If only someone would step up to mentor Owen . . . but she knows better than to expect help from team veteran and bad-boy enforcer Jace Jacobsen.Jace has built his career on the infamous reputation of his aggressive behavior--on and off the ice. Now at a crossroads about his future in hockey, that reputation has him trapped. And the guilt-trip he's getting from Eden Christiansen isn't making things any easier. But when Owen's carelessness leads to a career-threatening injury and Eden stumbles upon a story that could be her big break, she and Jace are thrown together . . . and begin to wonder if they belong on the same team after all.

Booklist Review

Eden Christiansen is standing on the sidelines of her own life, and she doesn't know how she got there. Jace Jacobsen desperately wants out of the spotlight. When they meet, tensions are high as each pulls the other into a world they want but think they don't deserve. Eden dreams of being a real reporter, and Jace longs to be seen as more than just an NHL enforcer, but fear holds both of them back from finding happiness on their own and with each other. Warren (Take a Chance on Me, 2013) once again draws readers into the world of the Christiansen family in this story of self-realization, romance, and trust in God. As Eden and Jace get to know each other, they also face great challenges when the lives of their loved ones are shaken to their foundations. Warren knows and loves her characters, and readers will fast become invested as well. To the very end, Jace and Eden are worth rooting for.--Richard, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist
