Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never even met?
Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch—an anonymous virtual assistant service—is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.
Although it’s against the rules for her to check his file, she’s 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting… until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.
Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He’s still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth—that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won’t show her pretty face.
But it’s nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can’t fix. Hailey can’t resist the offer. Matt can’t resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn’t have to. Fire up the kiss cam!

Though Blake will always be my favourite, Matt Eriksson is highly delectable. If you need a reminder: super hot hockey player, great dad, animal lover, and one surprising dirty mouth.
So it’s no surprise he’s Hailey’s favourite player. One could even say she has a little crush on the guy. I loved seeing how flustered she got the first couple of times she meets Matt. This normally strong, focused, professional woman, becomes a mess around him.
Matt has a little more game than Hailey, and deems himself very lucky she likes him so much. A blossoming romance, with some dirty bedroom or other rooms action, and low on the drama scale, this is my kind of book.
Though to be fair, Matt’s ex-wife needs an attitude adjustment. While there are the troubles of every relationship, though magnified by their busy schedule, I loved every interaction between Matt and Hailey. Their relationship feels very natural, with plenty of funny, adorable, and hot moments.
Another hit for Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy. We get a hint on the next story, and I can’t wait! Stay was excellent written, wonderful characters, and a pleasure to read.
