USA TODAY bestselling author Alicia Hunter Pace launches a brand-new sports romance series, Nashville Sound, featuring some fan favorites finding true love.

Emile Giroux has vowed he will be everything his stepfather is not: cultured, charming, sophisticated, and—above all else—a rich, successful NHL star. One of the top goalies in the league, the French Canadian strives for more, still haunted by his troubled childhood.

Amy Callahan was a freelance professional organizer until an ambitious, domineering boyfriend took over her life and cleaned out her bank account. Once indispensable to the stars, Amy now finds herself with no money, no house, no phone, and nowhere to go.

When Emile finds Amy literally kicked to the curb, he seizes his latest chance to rescue a damsel in distress—only Amy doesn’t want to play that game. In fact, she’s determined to put men on ice in her life permanently. Can they find a way to let love win?

This was quite the little gem and I must thank my friend Carla for insisting that I read it. I have never read this author duo but I sure will be stalking them for the next book. I loved it! Emile was such a joy to read about. He was so charming and just cute with his accent and how clueless he was at times. He made for a very charming Hero. I was horrified on Amy's behalf over what her ex did to her. I hated that she felt she had to guard herself so much with Emile because of her ex, but it wasn't so bad that it ruined the book for me. I really liked this couple and wish there was an epilogue. I'm hoping that the reason there wasn't one was because we will continue to see them in the next book in the series. I highly recommend this fun, sports romance story. ARC provided by NetGalley.

Great read! I loved the French Kiss, Emile and his innocent good guy appeal, stirred in with a super fit hockey form. #Aliciahunterpace did a great job of making these characters heartfelt and real. You don't have to be a sports buff to get this game because in the end it's sexy and romantic. Great 'till the very end, leaving images lingering of Emile's tight end. This book is sure to satisfy.

I have never smiled as much as I did while reading Alicia Hunter Pace’s, Face Off: Emile. This is the perfect feel good book with a perfect hero. Amy has been abandoned with nothing but the clothes on her back, a phone that won’t work, credit and debit cards that are worthless, and $84.38. She’s worried, alone and confused. Emile is just the kind of guy to stop and help a distressed female, especially since the parking space in front of her is available. He’s a rescuer and he sets out to right the wrongs that have been dealt to her. Amy is definitely broken and struggling to find her way as well as building up resistance against anything that might take away her independence again. Emile knew that he had been searching for his happy ever after but despite a few good women in his life he had yet to find it. He begins to see that in Amy. I absolutely loved Emile! So many heroes are described as being charming and sweet but Emile is the pure definition of the words. He is French Canadian and speaks with a stilted formal accent that just about pushed me over the edge of never coming out of this book again. He often confused his idioms which just endeared him to me more. However, despite being all of that, at the heart of him is his desire not only for Amy, but to protect her and bring her away from the hurt and mistrust she experienced from her ex. I was already deeply in love with this hero but when I reached the end and he presented his “grand gesture” I wanted to laugh and cry and throw my arms around him. I’ve never read such an incredibly heart felt declaration. Ladies, do not dally. Get to one clicking. ARC provided through NetGalley and gosh dang it I’m so glad I got one! Dual POV Safe Possible Triggers – some abuse off page that is mentioned Push and pull - some but completely understandable considering what she has gone through
