I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
The moment everything changed didn’t happen in that cliché rockets-red-glare kind of way, it happened in the form of a waking nightmare. I caught my husband, my high-school sweetheart, the father of my children, balls deep in a sordid affair.
That was when I gave up on men and love.
I didn’t count on the NHL’s golden boy, the beautiful, arrogant Cooper Stone turning my life and my hockey rink upside down.
My kids are why I wake up in the morning.
Hockey is what Cooper breathes for.
We’re from different worlds and places in our lives but when our hearts collided something so wrong and different turned into something so right.

I was so excited when I received a copy of Something so Right by Natasha Madison. It checked all my boxes from the get-go. Hockey player meets single mother? Yes please, sign me up and don’t disturb me while I’m reading.
This is the story of Cooper Stone. The best player in the NHL who signed up for training with Parker, who just happens to be a woman. She is a divorcee with two kids, 15 years-old Matthew and 5 year-old Allison. Things evolve (very) quickly between these two characters and Cooper is portrayed as the classic alpha male the reader has to come to know.
The perfect, possessive, over-the-top male. And he is one dirty talker. I love dirty talk, but this was a little too much for me. Parker is a blend of motherly affection and sassy leading lady, some of her best moments are her interactions with her children.
This is Natasha Madison’s debut novel and it shows. The character introductions were done rather quickly, and there was a lack of personal interaction between the main characters before they actually got together. I didn’t really connect with the story or the characters until the middle of the book.
I will, however, give her the credit for making me laugh a few times and that is a good sign in my world. And despite a few linguistic mistakes along the way, which threw me off, I enjoyed this book.
I give Something so Right 3 stars cause there is room for improvement with the writing, but I will definitely try her next book.
