Once again Jacob Chance has written a completely unputdownable book. CHECKED was, in my opinion, one of Jacob's best. This man certainly knows how to write sport romances to perfection. His characters are such that you instantly fall for them, you want to be their friend, you want to know all about them and that's exactly what Jacob gives his readers.
Tenley Davenport, who we met previously in Depravity as Sophie's best friend, has had a crush on Sophie's cousin Clancy since her teenage years. He is #1 on her dream list. Little does she realise that attending a friend's wedding will change her life completely. Tenley is simply adorable. She's a go-with-the-flow type of person and I think that's what makes her such a relatable character. She can definitely hold her own when it comes to Clancy.
Clancy Wilde, who we have previously encountered in the Boston Terriers football series, has one dream ... to play professional hockey in the NHL. He's known as "the Wilde Man", totally crazy, heaps of fun and completely devoted to the sport he loves ... hockey, the only woman in his life. It's funny how a one-night-stand can completely change a man's perspective and his dream.
I simply adored Tenley and Clancy together. It was obvious that there was a pull between them, their chemistry was definitely off the charts. Jacob doesn't make things easy for them though, and I think that this is the main attraction of their relationship. There is a lot of deep thinking in amongst the fun and the banter that they clearly enjoy with each other. I enjoyed the way in which Jacob slowly eased them through the beginnings of their relationship, after their initial hook-up, it was a real slow burn.
CHECKED was a story that was full of heart and soul, something that Jacob does with perfection. he knows how to endear his characters to his readers. This was a love story with plenty of humour, a small amount of angst, a major surprise and a large amount of love. How could you not fall for the blonde haired hockey hunk and the stunning woman who changes everything he dreams of?
Another absolute winner from Jacob, so do yourself a favour ... sit back, relax and soak up every moment.

There was so much to love about this book, when I started reading I was instantly hooked, couldn’t put it down. I was so immersed in the story but was constantly at war with myself .. “Slow down I never want this story to end” ... “Hurry up, read faster .. I want to see where this goes!!!” To say I loved every second would be a gross understatement.
Clancy has just become my new book boyfriend. Once you read all about him you will understand and be trying to fight me for him haha. He is everything you could possibly want in a man. He is sexy, confident, sweet, smart, possessive, funny, talented... ok , the list of his qualities is endless . He’s just that SPECIAL. I adored him .
Now Tenley.... she is the kind of heroine I love reading about. She’s stunning ( but doesn’t know it) she’s sweet, kind, caring, smart, and she SASSY with a capital S . I loved her independence, that whole “I don’t need a man to make me whole” is attractive, she definitely was no wall flower, the perfect match for Clancy in my eyes.
I could gush about this book ALL DAY. It gave my heart beautiful flutters, I swooned so hard for the both of them, it was perfect .
I highly recommend this book.. QUICK go now and grab a copy, you will LOVE IT ( I promise)
Congratulations to Jacob on a stellar read. It deserves the ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
