(Aces Hockey, #4)
by Kelly Jamieson
The so-bad-they’re-good alphas of hockey’s Chicago Aces are back in this emotionally charged novel of sex, love, and second chances from the bestselling author of Top Shelf and the Heller Brothers series.
Tanner Bennet hates weddings. They just remind him that he simply isn’t cut out for any kind of healthy, committed relationship—never has been, never will be. After getting rejected by the girl he thought was “the one” all those years ago, he made a huge mistake and married the wrong person. Now that the divorced heartbreaker has reluctantly agreed to be a groomsman for one of his NHL teammates, the last thing he expects is a chance at redemption with the one that got away.
After Marc Dupuis of the Chicago Aces hires wedding planner Katelyn Medford, she discovers that her big break comes with a twist: a reunion with her college sweetheart. The way she dumped Tanner still haunts her. Eight years—and three broken engagements—later, Katelyn knows she’ll never have that kind of innocent, wide-eyed passion again. Still, she and Tanner soon generate enough body heat to burn up the sheets. And even with Tanner’s career with the Aces up in the air, Katelyn’s wondering whether the time is right to let him in for real.
Back Check is the fourth book in the Aces Hockey series by Kelly Jamieson and as with the other books in the series this one is a great read!While this book can definitely be read as a standalone I personally feel that you will get much more from the book with knowing the other players stories.
Tanner doesn't like weddings but he promised Marc that he would stand-up for him at the wedding and he will do what is needed of him and that would be it....well that was his thoughts BEFORE he met the new wedding planner, Katelyn, the one that got away all those years ago.
Katelyn and Tanner played it cool all of like a minute when they first met...for the second time. While there was some hesitancy on both of their parts I am really glad they didn't deny themselves.
I love second chance romances and this one did not disappoint at all. Tanner and Katelyn had great chemistry together, you could feel their need for each other coming through the pages. There was little angst which made this a much sweeter read.
This has been a great series to read, you never know what is going to happen next but you know it will be a a biscuit in the basket.
