For help with these queries or to submit general questions, comments or feature requests, try Goodreads Help or use the Contact Us form. looking for a quick and easy (and dirty, jesus) entry into the hockey romance craze, Behind the Net isn’t a bad way to spend an afternoon. I was pleasantly surprised to find there was no third-act breakup, but that's probably because it took all that time to get together so by the time they were together there were only 50 pages of the book left.

Jamie, also stepping way out of his comfort zone, letting Pippa in and opening his life to her was such amazing character development. The grumpy x sunshine from the beginning finally turned into sunshine on more sunshine and I am so here for it.

I’m torn as to whether I’ll read the next one , I’m curious but not sure if it’s as long as this one. I have to warn people though that this book is heavy on the insta-love and is quite cliche at times!

For instance, Jamie’s near-constant use of Pippa’s “songbird” and “pretty assistant” nicknames gave me such an intense physical ick I almost chucked my Kindle into the sea. i really enjoyed how the story arc was done for jamie’s relationship with his mom - the mental health rep for both of them was very believable. Pippa’s growth, rising from the shadow she’s walked in for years and going for everything she ever wanted made my heart SO happy. I loved hockey romances and I loved the chance to read a hockey romance by one of my favourite authors! I honestly think that is enough reason to convince you to read it, if you are into sports romance/want to get into this PLS PLS READ IT!

Not only did I have the best experience beta reading, but the characters were so relatable and realistic while also being so swoony and fluffy. He invites her to stay at his residence so that she could assist him with tasks since so much of his time preparing and training for the upcoming hockey season. on day one, you knock on his door only for it to be the hockey god you crushed on in high school who seemingly has no idea who you are and is not happy you're here. It was the cutest and sexiest love story … Jamie was the grumpy sweetheart of my dreams and Pippa gainning her comfidence back thanks to his care and love was all i asked for.

There is a subplot with matters relating parental issues that they both resolve in the end in a very real and mature way and for anyone that might concernes, yes i kept crying and ceying bc of the relief and happiness i felt.

jamie was such a great love interest - i was hooked from the second we got his pov and realized he wasn't grumpy, but rather currently melting into a puddle - and i really enjoyed seeing pippa's development through the story.
