Reviewer’s Thoughts

Sparks fly the moment Sarah Jankins and Sebastian St. Amant bump into each other in the parking lot of the Buffalo Storm’s ice arena. The chance meeting takes place on Sarah’s first day as a Competitive Analysis Consultant for NHL’s Buffalo Storm hockey team. Sarah’s new position combines her love of hockey and math and is her dream job. She has a PHD in applied mathematics and thinks of herself as math geek. Because Sarah is a woman and has never played hockey, everyone is skeptical that her math skills can improve the team’s chances of winning.

Sarah is immediately attracted to Sebastian and his French Canadian accent. In fact, he makes Sarah weak in the knees when he uses a mixture of English and French. Although there is a strong chemistry between them, Sarah has hesitations about dating Sebastian. Throughout the book, Sarah goes back and forth trying to decide what to do.

Sebastian is the newest rookie on the Buffalo Storm’s hockey team and needs to prove himself. He is a combination of talent, personality and looks, but isn’t aware of his affect on women. He has a boyish charm and a heart of gold. Sebastian wants to date Sarah and tries his best to be patient with her reservations.

SHOULD’VE KNOWN BETTER is a sweet, contemporary hockey romance. Sebastian and Sarah are both down-to-earth and easy to connect with. The guys on the team have a special camaraderie and are entertaining and funny. They love nothing better than to pull a good prank on each other. Sebastian and Sarah must deal with their issues and then decide if they are willing to take a chance.
