My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is book 8 in the Seattle Sockeyes series and I can’t believe it but it’s actually the first book I’ve read from author Jami Davenport! Admittedly, I know nothing about hockey (not a huge sport here in Texas!) but I really enjoyed this book. The story’s not bogged down with a bunch of hockey terminology. Instead, it’s fast paced with a slow burn and has three lonely people looking for the comfort of family even if they don’t realize it. Martin (“Brick”) is the sizzling hot goalie for the team, he’s easy going and built like Adonis BUT he’s also conceited, immature and spoiled. When he finds out he’s a father to the adorable and orphaned Macy, his attitude stinks! With the reluctant help of his nanny, Amelia, they all begin the journey to becoming a family. This journey is what I loved about the book! Watching them learn to trust in each other and watching Brick grow and mature was believable, it feft REAL and actually kind of fun. I don’t have very many sports themed books on my READ AGAIN E-SHELF but I think this one makes the cut! Told from dual POVs with a happy ending.

WANTED: Single dad needs nanny–In more ways than one.
Martin “Brick” Bricker is living the good life. He’s playing the sport he loves, has all the women he can handle, and parties like a rock star. At twenty-six, he has no interest in slowing down or taking anything seriously–except hockey, of course.
Then a knock at his door changes everything.Suddenly he’s the single father to a five-year-old daughter he didn’t know he had, and he’s trading his playboy ways for Barbies.
Amelia Stacey struggles to make ends meet and juggles her day-care job with a full load of college classes. When she’s offered a temporary, two-week nanny position making more money than she imagines, she jumps at the chance. Before she knows it, she’s in over her head, not just with her five-year-old charge but with the girl’s hot single father.
Brick always goes after what he wants, and he wants Amelia. Only responsible Amelia doesn’t want anything to do with the party boy. Struggling with fatherhood and his unexplainable attraction to his nanny, Brick has to figure out where his daughter and Amelia fit into his life.If they fit at all.
But one thing’s for sure: Brick can’t block this shot straight to his heart.
