Publisher's Summary

Book one of In the Zone. NHL player Tim Hollander lost his temper one time and threw a water bottle at an abusive fan. After "Bottlegate", he's traded to the San Diego Barracudas, where he'll need to keep the bad publicity to a minimum while proving he can still compete with the younger guys on the ice.

Erin Collier is a pediatric nurse who's never seen a hockey game but gets in line for Tim's autograph at a PR event in hopes of impressing the doctor she has a crush on. When an obnoxious fan gets pushy toward Erin, Tim rushes to defend the pretty stranger, throwing a punch in the process. Grateful for the rescue, Erin agrees to stand by Tim during the resulting press conference and host him at a hospital charity event. Their chemistry is palpable, and soon their lives are intertwined. But Erin doubts a hockey player is capable of anything resembling a real relationship. And if Tim can't get her to see beyond what's on the surface, they'll never last longer than a single season.

    "Loved the story....hated the narrator"

    The story was fun. It's not earth shattering but it was enjoyable. The narrator was horrible. She can not do a man's voice or an old woman's voice. Other than the main character, everyone else sounded awful! I think I'll read the rest of this series.

    "True Love on and off the Ice"

    This was my first book written by Kate Willoughby and I thought this was a really great love story between a NHL hockey player and a nurse. I loved the way the story pulled you into their lives and how they learned to adapt to their different life styles. Erin (the nurse) did not know anything about the game of hockey and it was really fun to see how much she got into the games when she started attending them and watching her man Tim play the sport. I would've liked to hear Erin's reaction to Tim's interaction to his Ex-wife Waverly when they happen to meet at the cemetery. Without giving away too much of the story I am dying to see if Erin and Tim ever have a family of their own. I hope the next book in the story fills us in on that. I can't wait to read the next book in The Zone Series, Across the Line next.
