She never planned to play her boss’s games!

Elizabeth used to love her job. Her previous boss, Ron, was a caring man who loved his employees. Unfortunately, Ron passed away and his son, the infamous corporate raider Charles, took over the company. Elizabeth knew Charles was very different from his father, but when he denied her a raise to help pay for her son’s tuition, she knew that he was the complete opposite of the loving and caring Ron. One night on her way home, Elizabeth finds Charles stranded on the side of the road and offers to give him a ride. Realizing that she is running late, she drags Charles along to her son’s hockey game. Before long Elizabeth and Charles’s relationship begins to grow and Charles shows more and more interest in the lives of his employees. Yet Charles is still secretly working on a plan to sell the company!

3.5 hockey and love 4  4

The heroine is the mother of a teenager who deals with all the financial woes as well as the worry of dealing with a new boss since her last boss who was a great guy died recently. The new boss turns out to be the man's son that was taken by his mother in the custody battle and barely saw the man, so he has no attachment to him or the company he left behind. In fact, their first meeting is quite cold when he rejects her question for a raise and won't listen to her reason why. In fact, the man has set himself to be a scrooge till an accident by snow gives the hero and the heroine the opportunity to see the other side of the other. The hero is invited to hockey matches, pancakes to raise money, and meeting other members of the community. Now, what I liked was reading the heroine dealing with the struggling finances, trying to give her kid the best she can, raising a teenager, and broken furnaces. It's a lot of her to deal with and the hero is there to support her with his words. His words of encouragement and the promise of a raise are the start of building a bridge between the two. They enjoy each other's company as they work and go to the point of having a physical relationship. However, the heroine is hesitant to pursue a relationship because of what happened to the last one when her boyfriend abandoned her during their elopement. The hero goes along with it but it seems the two have a hard time adjusting to being single. However, a gift from the heroine gives the hero the courage to open his heart to the heroine at her son's hockey game. The heroine is overwhelmed with happiness and fear that it might not be true that she makes a run for it with the hero going after her. Their scene is seen by the son's hockey members and the son encourages his mom to be brave. It's really a romantic scene and a bit of a late shotgun wedding in the end. I really did like it.
