Single dad and hockey star, Calder Weiss has put his love life on the back burner for the past five years, raising his daughter and keeping up with the demands of his profession.
But all that changes the minute Rachel Perry runs into him in the most unlikely of places, right outside the men’s bathroom. Vibrant and enchanting, she captures his attention, making it impossible for him to walk away without scoring her number.
Their connection is immediate, their attraction palpable, and their relationship undeniable. But Rachel isn’t the only girl in Calder’s life which scares him, because Calder’s daughter already lost her mother. He doesn’t want Shea to lose someone close to her again, making Rachel’s task of breaking through Calder’s wall that much more difficult.

This book was previously included in the Team Player anthology published last year. This is a light-hearted, fun romance featuring Calder and Rachel. For those of you who have read Three Blind Dates, Calder is a friend and teammate of Hayden one of Noely Clark’s blind dates.
Calder Weiss is a pro hockey player, a single parent to five year old Shea. Calder’s life is all about hockey and his adorable daughter. In this book his friend Hayden pops up every now and then in the story. Calder is that single alpha male who has a sweet and romantic side to him but all his attention is focused on his career and parenting Shea. When he bumps into Rachel he is smitten and wants more from her but is he willing to risk the chance of falling in love?
Rachel is a kindergarten teacher, a pint sized woman with a big personality and very sassy. She is a straight talking gal and knows what she wants. Getting to know Calder and his story she realises that she is falling in love too quickly. Is she brave enough to confront Calder about his issues?
What I love about this story is that both characters are straight talking, no nonsense individuals, career orientated with dynamic personalities. Calder and Rachel’s story is light-hearted, fun and their interaction is laced with funny repartees that will make you laugh. And I must not forget to mention the sizzling chemistry between these two they are just perfect for each other. This romantic comedy is fast-paced with no angst involved and a perfect treat for your bruised heart after you’ve read an ugly cry book.
Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
