★★★★☆
Sometimes lady luck shakes your hand, and sometimes she smacks your face. Sometimes she does both on the same day.

Three years ago I met the most amazing girl in the world. We were both down on our luck. Then I got that call—the one that tells you to get your buns on a plane to go meet your destiny.

But the girl was left behind. I didn’t have her phone number, and she didn’t know my real name.

While I became a professional hockey player, she became a superstar, with platinum records and legions of fans. And a slick, music producer boyfriend who treated her badly.

But fate wasn’t done with us yet. When Delilah turns up at a hockey game, I can’t resist making contact. The internet swoons when I ask her out on a date.

She might not remember me. But her jerkface ex does. He’ll do anything to keep us apart.

Good thing athletes never give up. This time I’m playing for keeps.
My Review

What a wonderful read!  I just had such a good time with this book from beginning to end.  I am still fairly new to Sarina Bowen's work but I have absolutely loved each book that I have had the chance to read.  I really enjoyed the previous book in this series, Overnight Sensation, so I was really looking forward to this book, especially when I realized that this would be about Silas.  I am happy to report that this book lived up to all of my expectations.

I fell head over heels in love with these characters.  Silas is just about as perfect as they come.  Sometimes characters that seem perfect annoy be but Silas was amazingly perfect.  He was such a good guy who always seemed to know exactly what to say or do.  As you would expect from a professional athlete, he was incredibly fit and I really enjoyed the scenes where we got to see him use a little muscle.  Silas wasn't afraid to express his feelings and it was very evident how much he treasured Delilah.

Delilah was equally amazing.  She hasn't always had the easiest life but she is kind of a big deal now.  Delilah is a very well known musician.  Despite her fame, she really is a down to earth girl with a very soft heart.  She is in a tough spot with her record label but is doing her best to make things work.  She actually leads a rather lonely life so it was wonderful to see her relationship with Silas help her connect with others.

Silas and Delilah just fit with each other.  I think that it helped that they knew each other before either of them made it big.  Since they both lived in the spotlight, they were able to see past the fame to the person underneath.  Their chemistry was off the charts and I loved to see the sparks every time they were together.  They were patient with each other and both seemed willing to wait if that was what was needed.  It was a lot of fun to watch them fall in love.

I would highly recommend this book to others.  I found this to be a wonderful romance between two characters that truly seemed to be made for each other.  I can't wait to read more of Sarina Bowen's work!

I received a digital review copy of this book from the author/publicist.

  8. I love this series, and been hearing so many good things about Silas. I like that they are re-lighting an old flame. Those second shot sort of stories are ones I usually love.
