Back Check (Aces Hockey #4) by Kelly Jamieson

Title: Back Check 
Series: Aces Hockey #4
Author: Kelly Jamieson
Expected Publication: January 10th


The so-bad-they’re-good alphas of hockey’s Chicago Aces are back in this emotionally charged novel of sex, love, and second chances from the bestselling author of Top Shelf and the Heller Brothers series.

Tanner Bennet hates weddings. They just remind him that he simply isn’t cut out for any kind of healthy, committed relationship—never has been, never will be. After getting rejected by the girl he thought was “the one” all those years ago, he made a huge mistake and married the wrong person. Now that the divorced heartbreaker has reluctantly agreed to be a groomsman for one of his NHL teammates, the last thing he expects is a chance at redemption with the one that got away.

After Marc Dupuis of the Chicago Aces hires wedding planner Katelyn Medford, she discovers that her big break comes with a twist: a reunion with her college sweetheart. The way she dumped Tanner still haunts her. Eight years—and three broken engagements—later, Katelyn knows she’ll never have that kind of innocent, wide-eyed passion again. Still, she and Tanner soon generate enough body heat to burn up the sheets. And even with Tanner’s career with the Aces up in the air, Katelyn’s wondering whether the time is right to let him in for real.

Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

My Review

***I received an eBook copy from NetGalley and the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review: All conclusions are my own. ***

I have followed this series from the beginning and have been waiting to read Tanner's story. I wasn't disappointed at all either. While I never have really enjoyed books about second chance relationships, this one really hit it out of the park. 

Quick rundown... Lovey and Marc are tying the knot and Tanner is offered a position in the wedding. He is a bit reluctant thinking he is cursed. Lovey had a wedding planner, but ends up having to find a new one, who just happens to be Katelyn. She and Tanner have a past, they were in love during college then they ended horribly.  Running into each other during the wedding preparations causes feelings to come back to the surface.  While she is trying to pull off this wedding without hitch, Tanner is faced with some possible career changes. Also we get to see poor Max again and I am so looking I have for awhile his book. 

I loved the interaction between Tanner and Katelyn from the beginning, they really drew my attention and kept me interested in the story. I love Lovey and all the other characters we get to see again. This series really is at the top ten of my favorite series. I absolutely cannot wait for the next one!!!
