ONE MORE SHOT                                    VICTORIA DENAULT

One More Shot (Hometown Players, #1)They say you only get one shot at making your dreams come true.

Jordan is determined to take two.

Drafted by the NHL at eighteen, Jordan Garrison was headed for fame, and there was only one person he wanted to share it with—Jessie Caplan. He was crazy in love with her, and had finally told her so. They shared an amazing night . . . and then everything fell apart. 

Jessie tries not to think about the night she gave herself to Jordan—or how he broke her heart. She tries not to think about it, but she does. Especially now, when she's staring into his sky-blue eyes for the first time in six years. After so much time and torment, she can't tell if she loves him or hates him. But Jordan has learned enough to know a connection like theirs is rare. He was lucky to find Jessie once. No way will he lose her again.

Jordan Garrison and Jessie Caplian for the most part grew up together. He was by her side from the first day she was introduced to the class as a new student. They did everything together and then through high school even though they liked each other they went out with other people. Then one night she got into a fight with her boyfriend and he was there for her. She thought he was still dating this one girl but he kept telling her that that was not the case. So one night they have a great night together and he has to leave later by going out her window. It appears everything is going good and they make plans for when he gets drafted by an NHL team that she can come with him and he can help pay for her college. This plan goes haywire the night of the draft and he is picked six overall which was good but in the audience is his ex and they show her on TV and running towards him. She sees this along with everyone else from their town and her sister talks her into taking a full ride scholarship to Arizona and she leaves the next morning. He has been trying to get hold of her but nothing is happening and when he gets back home her older sister who does not like him tells him she gone and she still thinks he is into the other girl does not give him her new number. He leaves his but she does not pass it along. Six years go by and now both are back in the home town and meet each other she still does not want anything to do with him but then he finds out that she has been working in the same town in which he has been playing hockey for, for a few years. Because of an injury he has the team send him to her clinic and ask for her. This is when the story heats up and they both have to make peace with past in order to have a future. It is very difficult for both but the overall story is very good. I got this book from net galley.  I give this 4 stars.
