⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from Ari
Length: 6 hrs, 32 mins
Narrators: Evelyn Marcail
As one of the top paid defensemen in the NHL, my life has been a revolving door of beautiful women and no-strings-attached sex.
It was only supposed to be a one-night-fling. Hell, it wasn’t even supposed to be that. I knew the cardinal rule. Don’t touch the coach’s daughter. And for years, I kept my hands to myself. It wasn’t difficult considering Brynne Jacobs hates my guts.
She can’t stand being in the same room as me – except for that one night. A night that left me hell bent on having more. Having all of her.
But she took off. No text. No explanation. Not even a goodbye.
Now she’s back, but she’s not alone. She’s got a kid. A kid with all-too-familiar blue eyes and dimples.
Math might not be my strong suit, but a quick calculation and I know the baby is mine.
And she’s delusional if she thinks I’m going to let her keep him from me.
Damaged. Callous. Cold. Those are the words she uses to describe me. And I’ve never claimed to be anything more. But for her – for them – I want to be.
I’ve been a fighter on the ice my entire life. Now, I’m fighting for the one thing I’ve spent my life running from – family.
C. M. Seabrook absolutely scores with this book. A second chance romance/enemies to lovers that’s so much more. The chemistry is electric, the emotions are raw and real, and Kane Madden is everything an alpha book-boyfriend should be: broody, possessive, protective, and wickedly hot.
Second Shot tugs at so many emotions and captures you from the very first page. It’s now tied with Second Draft as my favorite C. M. Seabrook book! It’s everything I wanted and more than I knew I needed. I can’t wait for the next book in the series. Five stars!
Evelyn Marcail does a good job narrating. I think I preferred her ‘male’ voice to her regular voice lol. There were moments that it was hard to differentiate between characters, but you quickly get lost in the story and it’s not a huge distraction. Definitely worth the listen.
