Cement Heart by Beth Ehemann

Lawrence Finkle, known simply to his die-hard Minnesota Wild fans as Viper, isn’t used to hearing the word “no.” He lives his whole life just a little on the reckless side. After all, life is just one big game Situs Judi Slot Terbaik dan Terpercaya No 1, right?
When what was supposed to be an innocent bet goes horribly wrong, he’s left to deal with the aftermath—and the guilt. In an effort to make things right the best way he can, he ends up falling for the one person on the planet he never should have.
The old saying goes that two wrongs don’t make a right . . . or do they?

I stumbled upon Beth Ehemann last year when I discovered her Cranberry Inn series. She immediately fell into that super sweet category with her nice hero and strong heroine. While that usually isn’t my cuppa, her writing and character development drew me in. I became an instant fan.
So imagine my surprise when I discover that Viper has his own story (he makes appearances in the Cranberry Inn series) and it is angsty AF. She drops a bomb in the prologue and I’m left wondering if she can really pull this off… And she did.
Because this is a story that the reader needs to discover on their own, I am not really going to go in to a lot of detail. Viper was a supporting character in the Cranberry Inn series. I highly recommend you read the first 3 books in the Cranberry Inn series before starting this one. He seemed to be loud, careless, and a bit of a manwhore. Ehenmann showed us a different side of him in this book.
Viper is estranged from his parents. Being an only child, the only family he had left was his Grandma and his hockey gang. So when tragedy strikes, it destroys Viper – especially because he blames himself. It starts to affect his career and, honestly, his mental health. It was hard to see our joyful Viper be gloomy and dark. The only thing that seems to keep him going is a promise. A promise he made to his best friend.
Beth Ehemann really knows how to pack a punch – and she delivered it with Cement Heart.
