Fun Fact about me, I don’t really like St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t wear green that much, I don’t drink, (obviously) and leprechaun’s are weird… But this book has made me want to wear green and find new green covered books to read!!!!

This book is about Eloise, a happy, sweet, slightly hyper kind-of girl who loves her family and Dr. Pepper. But when she makes a rash decision to kiss a stranger on New Years Eve suddenly her entire world turns upside down. Now she is working for the man she kissed, who turns out to be a professional hockey player. And he is the cloud to her sunshine… Where she smiles, he frowns… And Eloise is in danger of losing her heart all over again.

This book was fabulous!!!! It was super sweet and totally adorable! I loved the characters, the plot line and the entire book!!! Every chapter was awesome and this is a book I suggest to girls 16 and up who love a good romance!!!!!!

Now this isn’t a kids book. 16 and up is my age limit because there is mention of adult topics. The hockey players get ready in a locker room and there is mention of men doing “locker room stuff”. Nothing is described, but the men are mentioned washing up after a game. Sooo… not a kids book! 16 and up can read this!

Overall, LOVED IT!!!!! I adore this book, and this series, and this author!!!! I totally suggest Courtney Walsh’s books to girls 16 and up looking for super sweet, funny and interesting romances!!!! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • A great read for girls 16 and up!!!
  • Funny, sweet and just plain adorable!
  • A must read!!!


  • Not a kids book…

A humiliating break-up leads to an impulsive New Year’s Kiss with a complete stranger.
What could possibly go wrong?

It’s no secret that I love life. And Dr Pepper. But also, I love a challenge. . . So when the coach of the Chicago Comets gives me the opportunity to help their star player, newly traded to their team, acclimate to life in Chicago, I’m all in. I have to be. After my last job went up in flames, I have something to prove.

It turns out that the player, Grayson Hawke, is the rudest, most off-putting, reclusive guy I’ve ever met. It also turns out that he is the beautiful stranger I kissed on New Year’s Eve.

I can do this job. I can do this job. I can do this job.  And I can. Really well. I can make Gray’s life easier, show him all the reasons to fall in love with this city, and in the process, hopefully completely forget that the amazing kiss ever happened.

How hard can it be? We’re total opposites anyway. I love people . . . and all their stories. Gray loves hockey . . . and nothing else. I love to talk. Gray only stares. I’m happy-go-lucky. Gray’s all work and no play.

There’s just one problem. The more time I spend with Grayson Hawke, the more I start to see that underneath his bristly, standoffish exterior, he’s nothing like the man everyone thinks he is. And suddenly, all the reasons for keeping my distance, staying professional, and not falling for someone again. . .are impossible to remember.
