Scoring Chance is a Mile High Miners Novella by Lane Martin. It is the first book I have read by her as well as in the series, but I would read more. The book was very quick, short and to the point. However, it had enough details in it, that I really felt like I got to know the characters and it was a full story. There are several supporting characters that were developed, and at first it was hard to keep track. Some times the players were called by first name, some times last name and sometimes nick names. This made it hard to keep track at first, but it wasn’t too bad. I like that they mystery of Eden’s past was kept until toward the end of the book. We knew there was a questionable history, and a rough one, but not the details. That kept me engaged wanting to know more.
Rhett is a hockey player recently signed onto the NHL as a goalie, but he isn’t on the official roster. The team is only allowed 2, and he is the backup. This means he attends all the games, but has to sit in the stands with the fans. Eden is living in the apartment above Rhett’s team captain’s house. She had no plans to entertain boys, focused on finishing school. Before they even met, Eden was put off limits and Rhett was warned to stay away from her. But he couldn’t plan for or prevent the instant attraction he and Eden had. Their chemistry was off the charts and made it very hard for them both to keep their promises. Will they listen to their hearts or their heads?
