 Cannon West left his hockey playing days behind to care for his dying wife but has since found success on the other side of the bench. Now, as the youngest head coach in league history, he’s hoping to lead the Pittsburgh Titans to a winning season. The last thing he’s looking for is a relationship, but life sometimes takes us in another direction.

The Pittsburgh Titans are still working to move on from the tragic plane crash that forever changed the landscape of their organization. Having lost my wife, I know all about grief and the guilt of survival which makes me uniquely equipped to take this team to the next level. From the very first time I stepped inside the Titans’ arena, I knew I was exactly where I needed to be.

New to town, I’m still establishing my routine, but I have the most important aspect under control—the coffee shop where I stop on my way to the arena every morning. A strong cup of java and the gorgeous manager who I can’t help but chat up is quickly becoming my favorite way to start the day. But no matter how much I enjoy the blush that stains Ava Cavanaugh’s cheeks with my admittedly awkward attempt at flirting, I know it will never be more than brazen banter with a new friend. My job consumes almost all my time, and I know firsthand what that level of commitment can do to a relationship.

That doesn’t mean I’m not open to some fun. My career comes first, but Ava understands my boundaries. The only problem is that once I give into her temptation, the rules I set for myself become blurred, and my mixed signals hurt Ava—the one thing I promised I wouldn’t do. I’ve put myself in what seems to be an untenable situation, but I’ve faced those before. Now I need to find the strength to move past my fears, or risk losing my second chance at love with the woman who has stolen my heart.

ARC received from author for an honest review
I am loving being taken on the journey with the Pittsburgh Titans as they rebuild, and I really enjoyed Cannon's installment. I have wanted him to have his HEA since we first met him.

I mean, who doesn't love a sexy widower (and I am thankful that though it was a big part of his story, it was not the be all and end all of his life).

He and Ava are so cute together, utterly adore them. Their two completely different lives and world collide, and things get pretty sparky right up.

Love seeing the team grow and succeed, loved seeing all the relationships that have developed.

I just feel now that we have had enough of this series, and need to move on to something else.

Also - the cover guy is so not what I imagine Cannon to be - looks like his is a vampire waiting to be invited inside,  or is that just me?


Ava + Cannon

Coach Cannon hasn't dated much since his wife died nine years ago. He doesn't have time - life as a coach takes up even more time than life as a professional hockey player.
But then he meets the lovely Ava in his favorite coffee shop and they talk and flirt their way to a first date.
After which she is fired because she overslept.
Cannon feels guilty and wants to help.
But Ava came to town to make it on her own - without the help of her family...

Let the fun times begin...

A cute little age gap romance with a widower who might finally be ready for something serious again. Even though he thinks he doesn't have time for such things. But Ava is hopefully changing his mind...

I really liked reading this. It was very cute, funny, very sexy.
A bit too much hockey for my tastes. No idea why I even read hockey romances!
I liked that Cannon's widower status didn't make this book über-sad. It was handled very nicely.
I don't like the guy on the cover. Not my type at all. He looks like the son of a central american drug lord who is trying to go legit as a Miami night club owner. But that's just me.

Can we please get that Sawyer Bennett Hockey Netflix series now?? 

CANNON was an adorable + very sexy + sweet love story in the Pittsburgh hockey world! ☺ Run to your nearest amazon for your own Cannon - this one is MINE!
