ALWAYS ONLY YOU
August 4, 2020
Frankie Zeferino is the social media marketing manager for a major hockey team. She’s a bit of a firecracker—able to hold her own around the guys, but mainly wanting to stay low profile and keep to herself. What most of the team doesn’t know is that Frankie is autistic and suffers from arthritis, so she’s learned how to be extremely tough. But Ren, the star player on the team (and brother to Ryder from Book #1, Only When It’s Us), sees Frankie for who she is and has adored her from afar for years. Of course, team rules dictate that he can’t date Frankie, but the heart wants what the heart wants. Ren is determined to become Frankie’s friend, no matter how much she gives him the cold shoulder. He only hopes he can muster up the courage to tell her how he feels before she leaves the team to go back to school.
I loved the first book in this series like whoa. I thought for sure Book #2 couldn’t possibly live up to my expectations, but I enjoyed it just as much. Always Only You is such a delicious slow burn, second-chance romance. Frankie and Ren have fantastic, fun chemistry. Their relationship is thoughtful, caring, and believable, with enough drama to keep me interested, but not so much that the story becomes over-the-top or heavy-handed. I also liked seeing Ryder and Willa make an appearance, and the scenes with the extended Bergman family were really funny.
This is the second book I’ve read from self-published author Chloe Liese, and I’m officially in love with her. I can’t wait for the next one in the series!
