About the Book:

All wrapped up . . . 

One more game. That’s all that stands between NHL star Asher Westmore and a major career milestone. But then his brother bashes him against the hockey boards, sidelining him for months. Over Christmas holidays, no less. If staying off the ice doesn’t drive him crazy, staying with his family will. The only bright spot amidst the mistletoe and twinkle lights: His best friend, Emma, is a physical therapist. And working out with her improves his body and his spirit.

One last time. Emma Callaway was in trouble the minute she and Asher added benefits to their friendship. How is she supposed to resist a funny, caring guy who makes her toes curl? Her heart was safe while he lived in a different state. Now that he’s back home recuperating, though, it’s only a matter of time before she blurts out her feelings. Emma’s only hope is that with a little holiday magic, she’ll get the best Christmas gift of all.

“With the perfect blend of hockey, heart, and heat, Maybe This Time is a winner!” — USA Today bestselling author Debbie Mason

My Thoughts:

I’ve been looking forward to Asher’s story from the very beginning and combining it with my love of holiday stories seemed to seal the deal on this book. It didn’t necessarily live up to my hopes for Asher’s story but it was still an enjoyable read.

Asher was a little too of a knucklehead for me with his obsession with hockey blinding him to what he had with Emma and the risk he was running of losing her. I get he had his dedication to his sport but it did grate on me a bit that he just had this assumption that once he accomplished all his goals that Emma would still be sitting there waiting for him. I did like Emma and was glad she was willing to take a chance by putting her feelings out there for Asher and my heart broke for her when Asher messed things up.

The ending was satisfying and it is great seeing all of the Westmore siblings have their HEAs. Definitely a fun series to read.
