Dancing In The Rain
Author: Kelly Jamieson
5 Heartwarming ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
A retired athlete meets the daughter he never knew—along with the woman who reignites his passions—in this powerful standalone romance from the bestselling author of Hot Shot and the Heller Brothers series.
Drew Sellers is drowning in broken dreams and empty beer bottles. Hockey was his world, until a bum knee reduced him from superstar to has-been. Then he learns that, thanks to a one-night-stand back in college, he’s the father of a preteen girl with major issues. Her protective aunt sees right through Drew’s BS, but “Auntie P” is no stereotypical spinster. With her slender curves, toned legs, and luscious lips, she has Drew indulging in fantasies that aren’t exactly family-friendly.
At another point in her life, Peyton Watt would have been all over a cocky alpha male who pushes all her buttons like Drew. Right now, though, she needs to focus on taking care of her niece during her sister’s health crisis, all while holding down a job and keeping her own head above water. Besides, Drew’s clearly no father of the year. He’s unemployed. He drinks too much. And he’s living in the past. But after Peyton gets a glimpse of the genuine man behind his tough-guy façade, she’s hooked—and there’s no going back.

Here Is My Review Of Dancing In The Rain:
Drew Sellers has found himself at a crossroads, his career in the NHL has come to an end, and he never really had a back-up plan in place for himself, so he is stuck in limbo, not ready to let hockey go, even though it has already cuts ties with him. And if losing his career wasn't enough, he just went through a devastating divorce, apparently while he was playing on the ice she was playing in the bedroom with a fellow team mate of his. At this point he feels as though he doesn't really have much to live for, to get out of bed for, or look forward to... that is until a woman from his past unexpectedly comes back into his life, armed with a life changing secret. One that is certain to change the course of his life... and finally give him a reason to smile.
The moment Peyton Watt opens the door to find Drew Sellers standing on the other side, she is instantly taken with him, sure he is cocky as all get out, but he also has a softer side to him, one that she is sure not too many people get the pleasure of witnessing, and it draws her in. She wants to know the man behind the charming smile, the one that is full of whit, and whom she can tell has a big heart. Question is it ready to open up for her, and all that she is bringing into the relationship?
This touching story is sure to seep into the recesses of your heart and move you beyond words, and renew your faith in power of love... I have to say it is some of Ms. Jamieson's best work yet! When I read the synopsis for it I thought I had a good idea of what I would find between the pages, but she took this one to a place I never saw coming, and it took me on one hell of an emotional roller coaster... and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the ride!! Peyton and Drew were quite the pair, the minute they walked onto to the page I knew they were a match made in literary heaven, even if it took them several tries to get it right! Their road to finding their happily ever after was a little bumpy, but for me that is what gave it a very realistic feel, love is messy, and sometimes complicated, and these two found a way to make it work for them... and boy what a joy it was to witness it! Highly recommend this one, it is sure to leave you with a happy heart!
