Shots on Net
If you want to score, you have to shoot.
Shannon Klein is a small town girl with big city dreams. She wants nothing more than to leave her hometown of Whitefield, Connecticut, and move back to Boston, Massachusetts—where there seem to be endless possibilities for her career, social life, and love life.
Kevin Browne is an undrafted defenseman looking to break into professional hockey. He gets a chance to show his stuff with the Whitefield Warriors, the AHL affiliate of the Hartford Gladiators, when they offer him a one-year, try-out contract. His only goal is to secure a future playing for the team so he can be one step closer to the NHL.
Through a series of mishaps and well-timed encounters, Shannon and Kevin meet and quickly become friends—and maybe something more than friends, too. But they have to decide how much of their respective dreams they're willing to compromise in order to be together.
What Readers Have Said:
I couldn't put it down! And when it was done I just wanted more!

I guess that Shots on Net is a sports romance about hockey, but it's so much more than that. This is a realistic story that deals with the struggles that a lot of millennials face: figuring out your goals, priorities, and most of all your career. Layered on top of that is all the awkwardness of dating and having to define the relationship for everyone in your life, and exploring attraction, desire, and love. If you're on the dating scene now, there is a lot to identify with in the story of Shannon and Kevin. And I really liked the fact that Shannon loves romance books.
