Description:

Zara Stone

All my life, I’ve said I will never date a hockey player. I know better because I’ve seen and lived it all. My father is a hockey god, my brother is the captain of the most successful NHL team in the world, and my brother-in-law also plays in the league. Their lives are complicated, so I went in the opposite direction.
I fell in love with a scholar. But instead of proposing marriage, he broke up with me.
Three months later, I saw his engagement picture on Instagram. I couldn’t let him get away with that. No, it didn’t matter what, I was going to make that man see that I did not need him.

Evan Richards

I was in the running to pass my point record from last year, ready to claim the number one spot in the league. On top of my game, I was riding my career high wave.
Then, Hockey’s Princess, Zara Stone tweeted me. She wanted me to crash her ex’s wedding.
The worst that could happen? A PR nightmare. The best? A fun night with a beautiful woman.
It started out as a game—something I’m good at. Her crazy idea twisted into something I wasn’t looking for, something neither of us wanted.

When push comes to shove, one thing runs through my mind:
This is Crazy. Also, this is crazy right.

Review:

I picked this up after finishing the authors Hollywood Prince book a few months ago.

This starts with Zara at home getting a surprise visit from her boyfriend, only it's not a good surprise - he's come to dump her. A couple of weeks later, he's engaged to someone else and Zara decides to tweet his favourite hockey player and ask him to crash her ex's wedding with her. Surprising, he replies almost straight away, agreeing to do it.

I struggled to get into this from the start. I don't know if it was the influx of female characters near the beginning when i was struggling to figure out who was who and how everything related or something else but I wasn't feeling it at all. 

I did like Evan's one track mind in his pursuit of Zara: flowers, cupcakes, other treats and calling her "Sweet Zara" all the time. Flying across the country to visit her, FaceTiming her whenever he could. It was very full on, equally stalker-like and sweet at the same time... But it wasn't enough for me to keep going with this.

I don't think I'll be picking up another book by this author for a while.
