Publisher's Summary

Single dad and hockey star, Calder Weiss has put his love life on the back burner for the past five years, raising his daughter and keeping up with the demands of his profession. But all that changes the minute Rachel Perry runs into him in the most unlikely of places, right outside the men's bathroom. 

Vibrant and enchanting, she captures his attention, making it impossible for him to walk away without scoring her number. Their connection is immediate, their attraction palpable, and their relationship undeniable. 

But Rachel isn't the only girl in Calder's life, which scares him, because Calder's daughter already lost her mother. He doesn't want Shea to lose someone close to her again, making Rachel's task of breaking through Calder's wall that much more difficult.

It should be free

This is ridiculous. I love Meghan Quinn’s books. I love the depth of characters. Her humor is wonderful. However, this story is not finished. It’s not even a novella really. The ending is choppy and so is the rise to climax. Then add that it cost $9.50. I want a refund.

Barely a story

This is barely a story with almost no real conflict or plot. The sex is pretty graphic and the first date scene is so long it became annoying. Also, the characters were funny to a point that it was obnoxious.

Short and Sweetly Hot

Single Dad Hockey star has his 5 year old daughter the center of his life. He hasn’t dated and has protected his daughter from hurt as her mother (a one night stand that cured him of that) left her and isn’t coming back.
Rachel, a kindergarten teacher, runs into Calder (hero) and here is a connection.
Clever and fun banter as the two learn about each other.
Loved the angst was minimal, get tired of extended and often wasted angst and misunderstandings.
Highly recommend...great narration and clever and fun author...acquaint yourself with both in Audible Eascape

Very Funny

This book is very cleverly written. I laugh quite hard at the intelligent banter between Rachel and Calder. It's a sweet love story. The narration was really good.

cute story, but...

I enjoyed the story and Luci did a fine job narrating. Jeffrey Kafer however, is one I'll be avoiding from here out. It was like listening to romance as read by J Peterman from Seinfeld.

Short and Sweet

This was an adorable short story about a single father who has been on a dating hiatus. Its short sweet and just plain adorable. He meets a teacher when going to a public bathroom dressed up as a fairy princess including wings. After a few witty quips he asks her for her number to go out on a date. The date scene was just plain old school romantic. A total win for both the author and the narrators. I will definitely buy this once it becomes cheaper. A full credit is expensive for a 2.5 hour audio book, even as adorable as this one is.

Male narrator's voice not for this character

This was short, hence the novella right in the title. And I didn't like the male narrator's voice. And for a while I was worried we wouldn't get one of the author's signature steamy scenes, but we did in the end. A cute and fun addition to this series.

Average

I found this book to be average. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good. Maybe if it were a bit longer and we could get a little more character development it would be better. I did like the characters in the book and it was a little on the funny side in places. I'm not disappointed that I listened to it.

Short and Sweet

A short, sweet, and sexy story. Calder and Rachel are cute together, their chemistry is undeniable. It’s not all sunshine and roses, but their journey was enjoyable. I liked this novella.
