Maybe This Love - Jennifer Snow - Review


Hockey player Ben Westmore has some serious skills---on and off the ice---and he's not above indulging in the many perks of NHL stardom. When a night in Vegas ends in disaster, he realizes two things: 1) it's time to lie low for a while, and 2) he needs a lawyer---fast. But the smoking-hot woman who walks into his office immediately tests all his good intentions.

Olivia Davis doesn't need anyone derailing her career---or her dreams of starting a family---least of all a skirt-chasing player like Ben. But soon he's unleashing a full-court press to convince her that he's the real deal. She's slowly falling for his sweet, rugged charm, but with so much on the line, Olivia has to decide whether Ben can truly change---or if he's just playing the game.

4 Stars

Maybe This Love, is the second full length title in the Colorado Ice Series, but can easily be read as a standalone.  This was my first time reading anything written by Jennifer Snow, and it will not be my last. 

Maybe This Love revolves around the budding relationship of Ben Westmore, an NHL hockey player and Olivia Davis, a successful divorce attorney.    Ben is clear with an woman that he spends time with, not to have expectations, but one night of drinking leads to an error in judgement that will alter his future.  

Olivia is a smart, strong, confident and driven and highly successful, career orientated woman.  

The chemistry is intense between this pair, yet their connection is forbidden. 

I adored the secondary characters of Ben's family, and look forward to his siblings finding their happy ever afters in future titles. 

Overall this story is a heartwarming romance, with fun, flirty and playful banter.  The twists and turns in the story line, made what could have been a predictable story line quite entertaining and engaging.   I am quite a fan of a sports romance, in particular hockey themed romance, and will look forward to reading additional titles in this series.
