About this deal

I was so excited at the end of the previous book where single Rhett finally came out and seeing him in this novel was so great.

But Rebecca let’s his heart shine in this story- we get to see the real him- the best and worst of him, and I love this man. Rhett is a hockey player and newly single but it seems like he can't adapt at his new dating life because he was in a relationship for so long he forgot how to flirt. Rhett is a hockey player who has just broken up with his long-distance ex-girlfriend and he is determined to enjoy his final college days. This book has so much going on and a lot of emotions being spread around as it’s most of the guy's senior year.

While she does have a heart condition, being with Rhett is exciting, but should she really get her hopes up and jump into something with school graduation looming? The banter between them is fun and entertaining, and the great secondary characters add a lovely layer to their story as the all support each other and add comic relief to the story. And though there’s little drama–at least until close to the end–that doesn’t mean the romance is shallow and meaningless.

Rhett is absolutely adorable, swoon worthy and sincere from the beginning, even tho Sienna thinks he’s a total player! And I love getting characters who have unique issues and hers was interesting and just made me love her more.I loved her story and background and how she helped Rhett through tough times and was always supportive. Both Sierra and Rhett are supportive of each other’s sport and understand the physicality of what it takes to be a collegiate athlete. I enjoyed their competitive streak, but also their soft, intimate moments since they both knew rest was a huge part of recovery in staying healthy. They think they want different things, but when it heats up between them, there's no denying they have something in common—even if it's just for a night.

Which don't really make much sense now when I think about it, but oh well it's never to crazy to dream I guess. From the first time she meets Rhett he does and says everything wrong, but there is still something about the man that sets her heart thumping and not in the bad way that she knows she needs to keep a watch on. Broken Hearts is probably more focused on Valley U sports than some of Jenshak’s more recent books which made for a really exciting plot along with the love story.

I love how rocky their beginnings are- how humorously and endearingly Rhett puts his foot in his mouth over and over again, I feel madly in love with them, probably quicker than any couple thus far- the spark between them was just so captivating. I loved how they supported one another and the fact that they, as a couple, were fairly low drama and didn’t play games with each other. She has to make a choice what she wants to do after college, but nothing really excites her, until she literally bumps into, or more correctly, a large brick wall of a hockey player plows her over on the ice rink. He's fresh off a long-term, long-distance relationship and ready to make the most of what's left of college. They think they want different things, but when it heats up between them, there's no denying they have something in common--even if it's just for a night.

Broken hearts is the third book in the series, but can still be read as a standalone which I did this time because I couldn't tone down the excitement over the hockey player/figure skater trope (! Despite that, I'd still recommend this book to anyone who's looking for a lovely, light-hearted contemporary romance! Sweet spot is the only book that has made me say that I actually, genuinely liked reading about the sport, which in itself is a miracle.This series just keeps getting better and better- the writing sharper, the banter more endearing, the characters more complex and compelling, and this amazing crew of friends more charming. Her books are usually low angst but just perfect for when you want a book to put a smile on your face throughout your reading.
