This 13,500-word short story originally appeared in the LOVE HAPPENS anthology
Jean-Pierre "JP" Larocque doesn't believe in love, especially not love at first sight. As a rising star for The Baltimore Banners, the hockey player has his choice of women. Why should he settle for just one? Then he meets Emily Poole. She's quiet, reserved, maybe a little shy--and completely unlike any woman he's ever met. Can he convince the woman of his dreams to give him a chance?
Emily has no idea what to make of the sexy hockey player. She's never met anyone like him before: charming, charismatic, and attentive. Is he merely flirting, or is he after something else? Should she take the chance and end up risking so much more than her heart?
Sometimes opposites really do attract. But is it enough for these two to risk everything and try for a first shot at love?

About the Author
Lisa grew up with an overactive imagination, strong encouragement from her parents, and an insatiable infatuation with the Peanuts gang. That infatuation—along with an impatience she has yet to outgrow—jump-started her love of writing. After all, why should she be forced to wait a whole week to read the stories of her favorite characters when she could create stories for them whenever she wanted?
That love of writing continued to grow, along with all those voices in her head, even during her assorted careers: first as a firefighter with the Baltimore County Fire Department, then a very brief (and not very successful) stint at bartending in east Baltimore, and finally as the Director of Retail Operations for a busy Civil War non-profit.
Lisa currently lives in Maryland with her husband and two sons, one very spoiled Border Collie, two cats with major attitude, several head of cattle, and entirely too many chickens to count.

This 13,500-word short story that first appeared in the LOVE HAPPENS anthology. This is a sweet, funny and very sexy prequel to Break Away, book 5 in the Baltimore Banners series! It can be read as a standalone. The synopsis gives you a good idea of what happens in the book, so I won’t give anything away. What I will say, is that it is a feel good opposites attract love story. I enjoyed watching them meet and fall in love! It is a fast read and I definitely wanted more. I look forward to reading the rest of JP and Emily’s story!
This is a quick read (short story). Nice to go back to JP's story and learn how he and Emily met and fell in love. Lisa Kamp's books are well written and never disappoint the reader. I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.
This was a quick steamy cute read. I really enjoyed the introduction to Emily and JP. I am looking forward to their journey. I also love the first scene. It was a riot.
This was a nice quick read and it was so great seeing how JP and Emily (from Break Away, The Baltimore Banners book #5) first met and the early times of their relationship. I love both characters so much!! It was sweet, hot and sexy!! And JP's reaction to news that Emily shares with him made me fall just a little bit more in love with him. He sure was smitten with his Emilie from the very first moment they met. It was just so adorable and wonderful to experience! Just fantastic!! I love these Banners men!!!
