Standalone in series – hockey themed single Dad romance
‘A swoony single Dad vs his skittish PA. Fire up the kiss cam, hockey fans! You don’t want to miss this!’
Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never even met?
Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch—an anonymous virtual assistant service—is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.
Although it’s against the rules for her to check his file, she’s 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting… until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.
Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He’s still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth—that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won’t show her pretty face.
But it’s nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can’t fix. Hailey can’t resist the offer. Matt can’t resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn’t have to. Fire up the kiss cam!
Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.

‘I warmed up to you the day we met. I melted for you the second you kissed me.’
Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy really do write the most fabulous hockey romances. We’ve read and loved them all, and once more we inhaled another book but this super talented writing duo. Whilst the WAG series can be read as standalones; the characters started off in the Him/Us series and we recommend reading them all!!! We feel like we know all the characters as we’ve been with them for a while and they cross over in both series’.
“No, baby. I can’t do this again. Don’t want to be that guy who makes promises he can’t keep. I’ve been that guy. There’s not enough of me to go around. And you’ll only end up hating me.”
We loved how Stay was written; the mood and vulnerability with such a mature and unique feel to it. Whilst still sexy and funny, it had something extra that really did make us fall in love with this story.
‘Matt takes me so far out of my comfort zone that our first date caused me a week of shallow breathing and a loss of focus. I have never been so shaken by anyone.’
Matt Eriksson -be still our swoony melty hearts- is the epitome of gorgeous hockey hero with an absolute pure heart of gold. He’s funny, sexy, sweet, romantic, possessive and dominant as well as a force on skates. Being a single dad of twin girls with a bitch of an ex-wife isn’t easy for our hockey star, however, Matt never loses sight of what’s important and lives for his hockey dream and his girls. Sometimes we all need help though and Matt gets that from a fabulous round the clock service provider; Fetch, owned by Hailey Emery. Whatever you need from waffle mix to dog walking; Fetch has got your back.
‘All I know is that I love every second I spend with Matt. He’s so…real. Warm and gorgeous and funny and how the hell did I ever get so lucky.’
Hailey is such a fabulous heroine, she had an innocence about her with a resilient strength. A great sense of humour with moments of intimidated shyness. Whilst successful and confident in business she had a demure inhibited streak. Sometimes we need the right person to bring our qualities to the surface and reinforce our confidence, and that’s what happened for both Matt and Hailey. Such a wonderful hockey romance!
‘The best things in life are the ones you don’t expect.’
GOOD BOY – WAG’S BOOK ONE
‘I want someone to look at me like they just won the lottery. And I want to feel sure that I have to, too- that I can say “forever” and know I’m making the absolute right decision. I’ve been in love before. A little. But never like that.’
