Griffin Sullivan is handling the ultimate balancing act. Between being a single dad to an active six-year-old and the crazy demands of his job as a hockey coach, finding love is not in the cards. But when the team’s goalie is rushed to the ER, he’s immediately captivated by the gorgeous, sassy nurse on duty… who just happens to be the sister of one his players.

Sadie Braddock has always had a big, open heart and a bit of a wild side. But since her dad got sick, she’s closed herself off to life and love. Relationships are way too complicated – and so is Griffin. He’s also funny and tender and sexy as hell. How can something that feels so right come at the worst time ever? Then again, someone to lean on may be exactly what they each need – if they’re only brave enough to take the risk.

Victoria Denault's When It's Right left me utterly speechless. First off, hockey coach falling in love with a player's sister? Oh, scandalous! Love that. There's Griffin... Hot as sin hockey coach that is a dedicated father? Yum. Let's not forget Sadie, the glue that is holding her family together during a difficult time. Can I hug her? All of this in a pretty package with that cover? Holy heck, where do I sign up?

All joking aside, there are no words that can explain how much I loved When It's Right. I've already fallen in love with Victoria's hockey heroes and the women that captured their hearts, then she goes and breaks my heart with the difficult time both families are going through. Every scene with the Braddock father just about did me in. Seriously, I was on the verge of tears for a good chunk of the book. I loved that about this series. I've fallen so deeply for Victoria's characters that I hurt along with them.

It's the lighthearted moments that made me not want to put this book down. Watching Griffin try to find his spot in Sadie's life and her family was adorable. With Sadie, he's all in. I loved Sadie's fierce nature. She's protective of everyone, including Griffin's daughter. She tries to be the rock in the family, but there's only so much she can do and watching her slowly unravel was heartbreaking.

Plus it's also sexy as hell, which is something I love with my hockey heroes.

I adored When It's Right. It was amazing. Although I'm still a bit new to Victoria's books, she is already one of my favorite hockey romance authors. I love that she's Canadian and actually knows the sport. That definitely gives her books a level of realness that can sometimes be lacking. I still need to read the 2nd book in her San Francisco Thunder series. That will definitely be happening before the next book comes out. Not going to lie, I'm a little afraid of how sad the 4th book will be. It still can't come soon enough, though. In the meantime, I have her other series to keep me company. Bring on the hockey hotties!

Victoria Denault loves long walks on the beach, cinnamon dolce lattes and writing angst-filled romance. She lives in LA but grew up in Montreal, which is why she is fluent in English, French and hockey.
