Publisher's Summary

I’ve been texting the wife I lost, the woman I loved beyond measure....Now someone else has answered back.

Gunnar Bond is broken. Three years ago, he lived through the car crash that took his wife and twins away from him - though “lived” barely describes his current state. Giving up professional hockey, going off-grid, and drinking himself into oblivion are his coping mechanisms. Another is texting his dead wife about his days without her. Therapeutic? Doubtful. Crazy? Definitely. But those messages into the ether are virtually the only thing stopping him from spiraling to even darker places.

Until someone texts back....

Sadie Yates is losing it. Suddenly guardian to a little sister she doesn’t know and a misbehaving hound she’d rather not know at all, she’s had to upend her (sort of) glamorous life in LA and move back to Chicago. The nanny has quit, the money’s running out, and her job is on the line. The last thing she needs is her sister’s hockey camp counselor, a judgmental Viking type, telling her she sucks at this parenting lark. Thank the goddess for her sweet, sensitive, and - fingers crossed - sexy text buddy who always knows the right thing to say. In the same city at last, they can finally see if their online chemistry is mirrored in real life. She just needs to set up a meeting....

A ruined man who claims to have used up all his love is surely a bad bet, but Sadie’s never been afraid of a challenge...even one that might shatter her heart into a million pieces.

Great story

Hard to believe but Kate Meader is a new author to me. Narrator Ramona Master is new to me too and she did a good job although I felt her male voices were distracting but that is just my opinion.

This story had me laughing and crying and I felt as though I was on an emotional roller coaster.

Loved the story so much that I went and purchased the rest of the series, now I just need time to listen to them.

Gunner and Sadie

An emotional roller coaster ride to go on. Gunner is drowning in grief but a chance meeting or shall I say text with Sadie turns his world upside down. I adored this book. Narration was great.

A beautiful love story for a hockey player

I loved this story ! A lot of sadness comes across in this story from beginning to end, The love story which grows between Gunnar and Sadie is one of the kind and grows over time from a solid connection. In addition to helping a little sister adjust to her own loss, Sadie is copying with a bad job, a love she cannot understand and figuring out the rest of her and her sister's life. Sadie is a fun character who pushes Gunnar, the introvert, to open up. They were both handed life long challenges that they learnt to cope in their own way and together with the help of the "Rebels' larger family of colleagues". I can't wait for the next book !
