Life was good. I had a great job, amazing people surrounding me, season tickets to see my favorite hockey team play, and a cat that I could cuddle. Although it didn’t seem glamorous, I was happy. But when the shy, handsome, and somewhat awkward hockey player slid into my life, I realized that I could be happier. I wanted to be more than just content with life.
I knew I wanted to be a hockey player from the moment I put on my first pair of skates. I played
hard for the Titans, proving that I belonged on the top line. But just when I finally made it, an injury took me out of the game. While feeling sorry for myself and waiting to heal, I met the bubbly, beautiful, and smart pediatrician who brought me to my knees. She made me see that there was more to life than scoring goals. A love of the game helps bring these two together and onto a path towards a different kind of love.
Cheyenne and Kamden’s road isn’t as smooth as ice, though. What happens when Kam’s recovery isn’t easy and his position on the team is threatened? Cheyenne has to figure out how to break down his defense and Kam has to realize that he might not always be the one to score the game-winning goal.
After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love!

An older man was telling us all about how he’d once considered buying a hockey team, and I was doing my best to feign interest. I let my gaze wonder, so I could people watch, though, and I did a double-take when I caught sight of a woman speaking with a small group of people.
She was wearing a dark purple dress that fell to the floor and long sleeves that went to her wrists. The fabric dipped low on her chest, teasing at the cleavage underneath. The dress was tight at the waist, though, and showed off every curve she had. Her blonde hair had big curls in it, and the tips looked like they reached her shoulders. She appeared to be about three or four inches shorter than me, but I was willing to be everything I had that she had on some killer heels under that dress.
It wasn’t just the way she looked that caught me, though. It was the way she held herself. She was smiling as she spoke, and it was obvious that she had every man around her eating out of her hand. They laughed at whatever she was saying, and she appeared to be enjoying herself.
She was captivating.
“What do you think, Mr. Matlock? Do we have a chance at a repeat of the cup?”
I reluctantly peeled my eyes away from the woman to focus on the man in front of me. With a fake smile on my face, I shrugged.
“I think there’s always a chance. We have plenty of time to turn it around.”
When I glanced back at the woman, I saw that she had removed herself from the group she was with and was heading toward the silent auction table.
“Excuse me for a moment, will you?” I didn’t wait for anyone to reply before walking away.
The woman was looking at one of the lots that included a hot air balloon ride when I walked up. I cleared my throat and fought against shoving my hands into my pockets– a nervous habit of mine.
“A hot air balloon ride, huh?” I wanted to cringe at the lame words leaving my mouth, but I couldn’t stop them. “I’d probably faint before I left the ground.”
The woman looked up at me with a polite but disinterested smile on her face that told me she thought my line was cheesy, too. “Afraid of heights?
When her emerald green eyes met mine, recognition and realization dawned on me.
It was the woman from the game.

I was excited to read this one because I’d like the one I read by this author earlier in the series. And I was very pleased that this one definitely lived up to that one as well. Of course the more books I read with hockey heroes in them, the more I want to go watch more hockey games. Which we all know isn’t really happening these days. Cheyenne was a great character, very strong independent woman, especially being a doctor, and I love that she had a season ticket to the hockey games and always went and did her knitting/crocheting while sitting there. That is something I think I would like to do if I could afford it. The season ticket part, not the knitting, I can’t knit. But I love that she was able to go out and do things on her own like that. Kamden was great, totally understandable how he was feeling. And it makes sense that he might not be that recognizable at the beginning with all the extra facial hair and a ballcap. I mean really, with the helmets on, how easy is it to recognize hockey players? I don’t know?
The romance had sweetness, steam, and laughter. While it moved quickly, that was okay, because both of the characters were really in the right place for that. It was nice to see some of the characters from other stories mixed in, although there was one character from one of the more recent stories that almost seemed like a last minute add in and didn’t probably need to be part of the story. Definitely a good story to end this round of the series on.
