Publisher's Summary

Lawrence Finkle, known to his die-hard Minnesota Wild fans simply as Viper, isn't used to hearing the word no. He lives his whole life just a little on the reckless side. After all, life is just one big game, right?

When what was supposed to be an innocent bet goes horribly wrong, Lawrence is left to deal with the aftermath and the guilt. In an effort to make things right the best way he can, he ends up falling for the one person on the planet he never should have. The old saying goes that two wrongs don't make a right...or do they?

Sadness and inspiration

This story was about a pro hockey player and his loose lifestyle, who suddenly becomes faced with overwhelming tragedy. Afterward he goes into counseling therapy at his team owners demand because his life seems out of control because he blames himself for everything that happened. This audiobook dealt a lot with him finding his way, becoming the man he wants to be and falling in love with his best friends widow. Well narrated and a moving story.

Sweet

This is such a sweet love story. Different format from what I'm use to. The author made it so real As always Joe Arden did a great job as a narrator. Still not a fan of Maxine though so I'm glad Joe read most of the book.

Awesome!

This is my favorite Beth Ehemann book so far.
They all seem to have unique story lines, but this one really is special.

Love

I love Viper's story. He was already so damaged and then to have been part of something that changed his life so completely and endure the self loathing that comes with feeling responsible for something... this was bound to be a life altering listen.

The entire story had me, hook line and sinker. Couldn't turn it off. I felt like I knew what was happening and what was going to happen, but Beth told the story in such a way that I was enthralled.

Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell are always perfection but I especially appreciated their performance in this book. Maxine was challenged with giving a voice to a child, a mom, a gruff hockey player and more and she performed perfectly. Joe's voice was perfect for Viper.
