To start off I want to say that you can read this book without reading book one. You may not know who Kennedy and her man are. But you won't really lose any content in this book. But it will make you want to go back and read the first book.
“Feels Like the First Time” centered around a dual POV. You get Hawk, a retired pro hockey player who know owns a bar. And you have his ex-sister in law Ali, who is a sculptor. The two have been friends forever, which really comes across in this book. It was such a great read.
The characters were fabulous. All the charterers grew! Which I really love! Ali, Hawk, Bridget (the ex-wife and sister to Ali), their mom and more. Yes, they all grew during this story.
The story itself was really good. Some parts did get bogged down with things that made the story slightly slow. That’s the reason for the 4 star rating.
The sexy parts were tastefully done. And I really loved the beginning on how Hawk runs out of his bar in just his underwear to find out who's been stealing from him.
This book has many laugh out loud moments as well as a few twists and turns. There are also some all-out tissue moments. Oh, I can’t forget to mention the killer ending!!!
What's wrong with a little white lie? There are a lot of things Ali Marshal doesn't do: pink anything, a day without chocolate, and Hawk, her sister's ex-husband. Sure, he's a sexy former NHL star who can make her pulse pound with just a wink. But he belonged to Bridget first. And no matter how long she's had a crush on him, how great he's always been to her dad, or that her sister is engaged to someone else now and Ali needs a date to their engagement party, she can't give in to temptation. Can she? It's been years since his disastrous marriage crashed and burned, and Bradley Hawk has finally moved on. So when Bridget blows back into town with her new fiancé, throwing the engagement party of the year, he could care less . . . until Ali tells one little lie that lands him smack dab in a fake relationship. After one promise to be Ali's date and two of the hottest kisses he's ever had, Hawk can't deny how much he wants her. But what happens when this fauxmance starts to feel very, very real?
