When It’s Right
Available from Amazon
I love Victoria Denault’s hockey stories and I enjoyed reading WHEN IT’S RIGHT, her third book in the San Francisco Thunder series. This story has an engaging storyline and is emotional, fun and sexy.
Ever since Sadie received the devastating news that her dad has ALS, it has consumed her life. Sadie is an ER nurse and once she learns about her father’s disease, she spends all her time either with her family or working. Sadie meets Griffin, the Thunder goalie coach when one of his players is brought into the hospital where she works. Even though Sadie is immediately attracted to Griffin, she knows she doesn’t have time to date.
Griffin oozes sex appeal. He is a divorced, former hockey player and is now working for the Thunder hockey team. He has a six-year-old daughter, who he adores and a difficult ex-wife. Griffin finds Sadie refreshing. She has a sassy attitude and yet she is also nurturing and easy to get along with. Although Griffin likes Sadie from the moment he meets her, he is hesitant to get involved with her because his life is so complicated. Griffin is sweet, charming and shy and unsure of himself when it comes to dating. He stole my heart.
Griffin and Sadie have a lot of chemistry and I enjoyed all their interactions. They are each going through some life-changing events and don’t have time for a relationship, but they find it impossible to ignore the strong pull between them. Sometimes you meet the right person at the wrong time. Can they make it work? Although this is an emotional story, it also has funny interactions between many of the characters, creating a nice balance to the story. This heartwarming story left me with a good feeling and I can’t wait to read more in this series.
