A sweet and wonderful story of second chance romance and can’t wait for more in this series:)
This is one of eighteen stories in the Hot on Ice Hockey Anthology, each encompassing a hero from The New Orleans Cajun Rage, the team that have won the Cup this season and I've got to say as usual Ms. Kincaid delivered a wonderful read that took me hardly any time to finish. The way this story begins with the prologue had me wondering whether Finn would be able to make things right with January, especially after their conversation when they first come face-to-face in this story. He let her down badly when he left town without so much as a backward glance and causing January to suffer double the lose with both he and Asher, their other friend gone.
As for the dialogue, it was well-written and I loved every moment the hero and heroine conversed, especially whenever Finn called January by the nickname he has for her. It's cute and suits her, considering her name is a month. However, in saying that, there are moments where I felt sorry for the hero and heroine. Finn thought he was doing the right thing by trying to honor his friend's memory by following his hockey dreams, but it lost him the only other friend that ever mattered to him. Will January be able forgive him? Will the pair find a way to be together when he lives in New Orleans and she lives in Remington? Especially considering they have such intense chemistry and strong feelings for each other, which eventually spills over onto the pages in sizzling hot sex scenes that illustrate how right these two are for each other and that they shouldn't let anything stand in the way of being together.
Both the main characters as well as the secondary ones drew me in to this story with their dialogue and the way January's friends support and help her. The firefighters and those that work in the firehouse are a family, and would do anything for each other, which is proven by what they do to help January and Finn. No one wants to see the heroine get hurt and I liked how the secondary characters aren't afraid to give the hero advice in making sure that doesn't happen.
January is strong, brave, smart and I liked how passionate she was about her job and making sure the firefighters she works alongside are as safe as can be on the job. Certainly, she goes above and beyond in making the fundraiser she organizing a success, and she's lucky to have so much help from Finn and people he knows. While Finn, he's successful and done well for himself by achieving everything he set out to achieve. Being in Remington holds bad memories, yet it also holds some good ones. Getting close with January again and finally being able to explore their feelings without anyone getting hurt is a good thing, but when he's trying so hard to remain a part of the New Orleans Cajun Rage, I couldn't help but feel sorry for him. Because he was torn between going back to New Orleans to continue playing the game he loves for the team he wants to or choosing to stay in Remington to be with January. The question is -- Which one will he choose and will it be the right decision for him and January?
Overall, Ms. Kincaid has penned a delightful read in this novella, encompassing well-written dialogue, a fantastic array of secondary characters and a couple that definitely deserve happy ever after. The way this story ended was perfect, as January has wonderful friends that want her to be happy and aren't afraid to interfere to make sure Finn doesn't make the mistake of letting January go a second time. I would recommend Deep Check by Kimberly Kincaid, if you enjoy the friends to lovers trope or have read Skin Deep by Ms. Kincaid, because this novella features several Station Seventeen characters.

Finn and January’s past and future collide in spectacular fashion and I loved how these two just laid it all out to clear the air. Their chemistry was steamy and sizzled off the charts, but never once overwhelmed the emotional connection rebuilding between them. I also loved the family feel of the firehouse crew! Their friendly ribbing and camaraderie showed deep bonds and support. And poor Edwin! The keeper of the Cup must witness some very awkward moments with the players!
A missed moment, a new beginning...good gracious...the sizzling chemistry, and a touch of humor, Deep Check hit all my buttons with what I love best about friends to lovers/second chance romances! Apparently, I’ve also stumbled upon a new firehouse of hotties to read about too...
Finn has accomplished his goal, he won The Cup and bringing it home to make amends to his deceased friend seems to him closure until he remembers he also has to clear the air with January. I believe the way the writer wrote January as smart, quick-witted and genuinely loving to her friends, she could do nothing but forgive Finn once he made the decision to approach her.
What I didn't expect was for January (or Calendar Girl as Finn likes to call her) to so quickly move on after Finn's apology and then jump into a physical relationship with him. It was a refreshing change to what we as readers have become accustomed to reading. I definitely thought Finn would have to work really hard at the apology and friendship renewal....... LOL.
The second chance aspect only seems short term as Finn is waiting on a contract renewal to leave town, but both fall in love with each other and decisions become harder. I'm not giving the story away, but I will say that love triumphs in the end; and I was happy it didn't take a tragedy to make Finn realize the importance of his newfound love for January!
