To show her someone else can protect her heart and love her unconditionally.
Now I just have to convince her that someone is me.
As in the Blurb above Laura Erickson believed in Happily Ever After until her ex showed her that he wasn’t hers, this is book #4 in the Indianapolis Eagles Series “Protecting her Heart” is the continuation on some of the members of an NHL hockey team. This is the story of Laura Erickson, she’s the assistant GM as well as the daughter of the owner of the Indianapolis Eagles, and defenseman Mark Lee. Laura is regrouping from a bitter breakup and divorce, Mark has been waiting for her and is going to show her he’s her one and only Prince. Their love story is so heartwarming, so sweet. I loved the way that Mark was patient and committed to his task to win Laura’s heart. This wasn’t a story that was heavy in angst. I can say that no one tried to come in between them. Just a heartwarming and sweet love story.
Another good read from Samantha Lind, can’t wait for the next book in the series coming out this month. Let’s see if Samantha can keep up the great characters and the perfect story lines.

But the one man she’s head-over-heels in love with has her in the friends—with incredible benefits—category.
Can Madison and Richard find their way through the murky waters of friendship and become the lovers they secretly want to be?
Playing for Keeps: Indianapolis Eagles Series Book #3, is Samantha Lind’s proverbial Hat Trick! I loved it, and I can relate to some of the story, I’m battling my own Cancer for the past almost 5 years, or my type of cancer is 5 years and yep I’m right there, but you fight every day and every day is a battle. My years are numbered, but there is always hope and love.
This book instilled a hope in me for love, that it is never to late to get the love of your life. Richard Murphy “Murphy” and Madison have been Friends with Benefits for several years, but little did the other know that they were only getting the benefits from each other and had were in a quasi-relationship. They love each other and no other but Madison had to start thinking of the future tells Richard that she wants to start to date again and that she has a date scheduled with a doctor friend of Kinley’s. Richard is heartbroken and angry but realizes he hasn’t told her or really expressed how he feels about her, so he must prove his intent.
This book is really well written, and I loved and felt every word of it. Samantha Lind thank you for once again knocking it out with this story. Your characters are amazing, and I can only think you know these people in real life to get them down so well.
Getting ready to start on Protecting her Heart and getting more into Mark and Laura’s story.
Cocky, man whore, player…. Those are all ways I have been described by the media and countless women. Are they accurate? Possibly. But that’s all I let the media see of me, Brian Kelly, defensive player for the Indianapolis Eagles Hockey team. I have no intentions of settling down and changing the media’s perception of me. I can’t tell if women are after me for my bank account, the status symbol of being with a professional athlete, or if they really want me for me. Then I meet her. The one woman who doesn’t let my charm affect her or cause her to jump directly into my bed. Can I possibly change my ways and settle down?
Grounded, selfless, giving…Those are all the ways my family and friends have described me. Are they right? Possibly. But, I’m so much more, and need some passion and excitement in my life. My best friend is moving on and I want that someone special to share all that life has to offer. Let it be known that I, Kinley Williams, want the right someone special. So why did he have to crash into me? The one man who is so clearly wrong for me. Then again, he doesn’t seem like anything the tabloids claim him to be. So, is he really all that wrong?
Story is well written and flows smoothly, which can be hard for some books following such a great read like “Just Say Yes”, “Scoring The Player” is an excellent second book in the series we did get to visit briefly from the beginning with Scott and Becca from the first book and in this second book since Kinley is Becca’s best friend and an old friends of Scott’s. And Brian met Kinley Williams through his Scott and Becca connection. Even though he probably would have met her anyway with such a lady’s man Brian is or was prior to meeting Kinley Samantha Lind created well rounded easy to like characters that followed from one book to the next, I loved the first book and am equally in love with this one.
Brian Kelly doesn’t know if people like him for himself or for his money and or fame, so show the world what they expect and nothing of the real person he is, that way he can’t get hurt. That is until Kinley. Kinley Williams is the sweet and sexy nurse next door that you want too take home to meet your parents and is an excellent friend to have, if nothing else, but the chemistry between Brian and Kinsley is of the charts and lead to so much more than either one of them expected.
Loved the story, the characters and of course the hockey!
Thank you for another winner. Can’t wait to read, Playing for Keeps seeing if it’s a Hat Trick!
Scott Taylor has the perfect life. He gets to fulfill his dream playing professional hockey, has a loving family, and a tight group of friends. But the one thing missing in his life is a partner to come home to. He knows exactly who he wants to fill that position– the only woman he has ever loved. The one who got away, who constantly consumes his every thought. What it would take to get her to Just Say Yes to a second chance?
Becca Phillips is an independent woman who has made her career as an ER nurse a priority in her life. She has a loving family and a best friend by her side, but she can’t seem to get over her first love, Scott. Insecurities led her to break up with him years ago when he started climbing the ranks in professional hockey and, for eight years, Becca has avoided Scott when he returns home each summer. Can she overcome her fears and allow love back into her life? All she has to do is Just Say Yes to the one and only man she has ever loved.
After being separated as a couple for about 8 years, Scott Taylor and Becca Phillips reconnect after Scott’s hockey team the Indianapolis Eagles have won the Stanley Cup. First love is hard to compete with so when neither one of them have found someone else they decide to take a second chance with each other. Their chemistry is off the charts and so is their connection. They want the same thing each other and a life together, family and a bond that will not be broken.
Samantha Lind, excellent work on this beautifully written love story, I fell in love with the characters, the story was smooth and followed off the page easy to not put it down until it was over. To me it was a second chance at love story and as I’ve said before couldn’t put it down after I got into the first page. Amazing down to earth characters, real life problems such an injury would cause where easily understood as the bumps in the story and how they maneuvered around them was easy to read. A real page turner.
Can’t wait to get started on “Scoring the Player” next. Should have all four books in the series read and reviewed in time for the newest book to come out “Against the Boards” Indianapolis Eagles Book #5.
Thank you again Samantha Lind!
