Contemporary Romance
Jilted by the only woman he’s ever loved, Jeremy Lewis is a man on a mission to be a renowned player – both on and off the ice. Who needs monogamy anyway? But when he falls during a game, Jeremy finds himself laid-up with a potentially career-ending injury and his support network, suddenly gone. His best friend, AJ, is busy in a new relationship, his teammates are pursuing their own dreams of hockey stardom, and Jeremy is left frustrated, broken and alone. Will their friendship survive AJ’s new relationship? Are Jeremy’s feelings for Chelsea truly a thing of the past? And can he persevere through his recovery to get back on the ice?

This book contains:

  • grief for parents
  • mentions of suicide attempts and racial violence

Jeremy Lewis is the centre of this story while we follow his grief, injury and recovery and attempts to convince Chelsea Davis to go out with him while at College in Alabama. Jeremy is an “only child” who lost his parents in Four Letter Feelings and has yet to experience all the firsts, their first birthday’s, first Christmas and the first anniversary of their death. He also experiences a bad injury that adds to his already vulnerable mental health that he needs to work through.

Chelsea on the other hand lives in Iowa, works full time, travels to Alabama a fair bit and has a rule to never date jocks, especially hockey players. And Jeremy is a total jock and star hockey player.

We pick up where the previous book, Four Letter Feelings, ends. Jeremy has come back from summer holidays; it’s the first game of the year and Jeremy takes a bad fall on the ice and gets injured. During his recovery he has ups and downs, emotional turmoil as he’s experiencing all the firsts since his parent’s death in the first book and the struggle to accept Chelsea’s decisions.

It felt like this focussed more on Jeremy’s mental health and recovery from his knee injury than anything else. Maybe it was my expectations that this would be a romance, but it did feel like the romance with Chelsea was secondary to everything else Jeremy was going through.

I can see how all of that leads to their relationship, and everything we’ve already read about in Lisa and AJ’s trilogy’s, I just wasn’t expecting it and I think I would’ve preferred a little more romance, but then I don’t know how that’d impact the overall story.
