Swedish hockey player, Anders “Iceberg” Berg, is counting the days until he’s an unrestricted free agent and can land the contract he’s worth. Yet, instead of recovering and resting at home so he can play to impress his dream organization, he’s in Denver for his brother’s wedding at a gin distillery, watching the pretty brunette who organized the whole thing.
Olivia Dyer can’t wait to put the year behind her. Her father died, and the event hall she ran at her family’s distillery was destroyed. The cost to the business and her mental health more than she could ever afford to repay. Rebuilding both takes all her effort leaving little time for anything else. Except for a single night of fun with the hot hockey player who’s been watching her every move.
When a kitchen catastrophe throws Anders and Liv together, it ends with an evening neither of them can forget. It was only meant to be one night. But when Anders is unexpectedly traded to see out the rest of his contract with the Denver Rush, and his plans to leave as quickly as possible are disrupted by the sultry brunette who defines courage, their only option is to give to the attraction they feel for one another.
Yet with Liv stuck in the past and Anders firmly focused on the future, can they put aside their differences and allow themselves to find love in the present?
|Love in Moments (Love Distilled #2) by Scarlett Cole hit me right in the heart. With EVERYTHING! The story, the love, the characters, their story. It was just perfect. As I said before in the Review for Love in Numbers, I want to give Gin a shot… well… I don’t think that Gin and I are going to be friends, but that doesn’t stop me from loving a story around a Gin distillery. The setting just gets better and better every time I read about it. And Scarlett Cole did as always an amazing by capturing the characters. Anders is a star on the ice, but he has no idea how to deal with a serious relationship. He cares so much for Olivia and he really wants this relationship to work. Then there is Liv. Her story was like a therapy session for myself. I know what depression feels like. I know the struggle. And I know the feeling of the people around you. So I really connected with Olivia. She too has a lot on her shoulders and tries so hard to get everything right. I really admire her for her strenght. So, this story is the perfect story if you want some passionate heartwarming love and some tears…. I cried both ugly and happy tears.|
