Review: Should’ve Known Better by Cassandra Carr

Sara Jenkins, a math geek and hockey fanatic, is thrilled when the NHL hires her as an advisor for the Buffalo Storm. She gets to marry her two loves in this perfect job.

Sebastian St. Amant is a young hockey player looking to make the jump from the minors to the big leagues. His lifelong dream is within reach, but he needs to convince the Storm's management and coaches he's ready.

When Sara and Sebastian meet, sparks immediately fly. Both want to succeed, but neither can ignore the growing attraction and a relationship is out of the question—Sara’s an influential staff member and Sebastian’s a player, not to mention over ten years her junior.

But the impossible becomes the necessary when they can no longer fight their attraction. As everything crashes around them, the strength of their relationship is tested. Will it weather the storm, or should they have known better?

Cassandra Carr scores again in Should’ve Known Better! Carr writes an absorbing contemporary romance that grips you from the beginning and does not let you go.

Sarah Jenkins, a mathematics geek, just landed her dream job as a competitive analysis consultant for the Storm, a NHL hockey team. Through the use of realistic workplace situations, Carr successfully portrays how hard Sarah works in order to prove her mathematical analysis can make a difference to the team. I couldn’t help but be drawn to Sarah’s character since I studied economics and math myself. The variable that is messing up her equation is her feeling for rookie Sebastian St. Amant. Sebastian, a charmer with a French-Canadian accent, is clueless to his effect on the ladies, which just makes him downright attractive. Carr beautifully and seamlessly blends French and English into his conversational style, adding depth to his character. The romantic tension between Sarah and Sebastian is electrifying. Sarah has two fears that hold her back from committing to her relationship with Sebastian: 1) being fired from her job and 2) being ten years older than he is. But, when these two finally succumb to their feelings for each other, their bedroom play is smoking hot and accentuates the love between them.

With its lively storytelling and loveable characters, Should’ve Known Better is an entertaining story that readers will be glad they picked up.

I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of an honest review for The Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.
