Single dad and hockey star, Calder Weiss has put his love life on the back burner for the past five years, raising his daughter and keeping up with the demands of his profession.
But all that changes the minute Rachel Perry runs into him in the most unlikely of places, right outside the men’s bathroom. Vibrant and enchanting, she captures his attention, making it impossible for him to walk away without scoring her number.
Their connection is immediate, their attraction palpable, and their relationship undeniable. But Rachel isn’t the only girl in Calder’s life which scares him, because Calder’s daughter already lost her mother. He doesn’t want Shea to lose someone close to her again, making Rachel’s task of breaking through Calder’s wall that much more difficult.
I had a chance to read this short story from the Team Player anthology.
Calder is a hot hockey player/single dad who adores his little daughter Shea. The man would do anything to put a smile on her face … including dress up as “Wanda” J in public. Totally pulled my heartstrings with this one – SWOONS.
Rachel is a school teacher. I love her personality – sweet, funny, caring, loves KIDS ❤
When the two first met, Calder was Wanda … Rachel was immediately intrigued by his wings and halo. They struck up a conversation and the rest is history. I would say the chemistry was instant. Calder has been out of practice with dating for a while so he was a bit nervous putting his heart out there again. Calder was also very protective of Shea. Calder does not want to get involved too quickly, fearing his daughter might get hurt if the relationship fails. I LOVE the guy for this alone!!! Can Calder open up and take a chance at love?
For a short story, this book has all the goodies – humor, passion, chemistry and romance. I love that Calder and Rachel are relatable characters – someone you would have been friends with. They’ve got some hilarious and witty banters going on. Over all, this was a short & sweet, heart-warming read.
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
