One more game. That's all that stands between NHL star Asher Westmore and a major career milestone. But then his brother bashes him against the hockey boards, sidelining him for months. Over Christmas holidays, no less. If staying off the ice doesn't drive him crazy, staying with his family will. The only bright spot amidst the mistletoe and twinkle li

Maybe This Christmas is book three in the Colorado Ice Series by Jennifer Snow. It’s still really hot outside so what’s better than a little Christmas in September to cool things off. Or should I say heat things up since the relationship between Asher Westmore and Emma Callaway is anything but cool. These two together generate enough heat to warm the coldest of winter nights.

They have been friends with benefits for a long time, but things are about to change and neither Emma or Asher are prepared to risk what they have for something more, but it’s the holiday season, a time of miracles and magic. With both his leg and his ego on the injured list, Asher struggles with knowing he may never reach his hockey career goal of one-upping his hockey star brother or reaching a game landmark. Emma knows how he feels, she was once an Olympic athlete, but a freak accident shook ...more

Disappointing, too much pointless drama, dragged out over far too much time, with an annoying, opinionated, interfering sibling who added absolutely nothing to the story either.

I love to try holiday romance, but to be honest, I find that the majority I try just don't do it for me. I've found some super great holiday reads, but I go in a little wary. Jennifer Snow is a new to me author, and I love a hockey hero so I gave it a try and hooray, I liked it! It's not necessarily super-holiday, but hockey is prominent and it's a well done best friends to lovers trope.

Asher Westmore is thirty and has two more games until he plays in his 1000th career NHL game. With an older br

This was another heartwarming, holiday read from Jennifer Snow about two best friends who found love with each other. You know me, I'm a sucker for a good friends-to-lovers story, and Maybe This Christmas delivered on the romance big time.

Asher Westmore and Emma Callaway have been best friends for years. Then they became best friends with benefits, which suited both of them just fine. Asher is a hockey placer for New Jersey while Emma is pursuing a snowboarding career. Then life comes at you fas

What's not to love about a best friends to lovers romance? Well, maybe more of a best-friends with benefits to falling in love romance?

I immediately connected with Emma and Asher. Immediately picked up on a whole lot of unrequited love . . . well, maybe not so much unrequited and unspoken. Emma and Asher have been the best of friends for years. Lovers for a while too. But are they ready to move this friends with benefits relationship to another level. Sex hasn't ruined things but will true love

Do you know the Westmore ? It's this family of hockey players, half of them are in the NHL and so far two brothers and one sister found their HEA. This time, it's the youngest son's turn to make a match.

For thirty years old NHL player Asher Westmore, hockey has been everything to him his whole life. In less than a week, he's going to be honored for his one thousandth game on the professional league's ice. Too bad for Asher who hate surprises, because a big one is waiting for him. He's going to b

Surprise, surprise!  Impulse buys can turn out pretty good sometimes.  I was feeling a bit deflated with the holiday books I've been reading lately and just kept wanting to find a really good story that would pull me in and give me all the sweet and cozy feels.  While looking through my Instagram feed late one night I saw this cover and... granted it isn't the best cover ever BUT it was a new author to try and I said to myself... One more.  Try just one more!  Ladies and gentlemen... success!

"I'm not me without you."

Maybe This Christmas was my introduction to author Jennifer Snow. Who can resist a #HockeyHottie, right? Certainly not me. I really enjoyed the witty banter and family dynamics in this feel-good holiday romance. A good dose of competition and sibling rivalry made it very entertaining.

Asher is the youngest of the Westmore brothers. His two older brothers led the way into hockey and he followed. Now that Ash's brothers have found love they've forgotten their 'sticks bef

Maybe This Christmas, the latest Colorado Ice novel by Jennifer Snow, takes Asher and Emma from friends to more. We’ve seen them be “friends” in the previous books, but this one finally reveals what’s been going on with the besties for all these years. It takes Asher a while to realize that he doesn’t know best when it comes to Emma and this stubbornness almost costs him everything. Their relationship is not quite classic friends to lovers, but strong fans of the trope won’t be disappointed. It

This was a story about friends who move to the next level of “friendship”.

It was hot! Well....Asher was pretty hot!!!! Emma is Asher’s best friend but she wants more, Asher just wants to play....hockey....play hockey 😉.

Overall, a good holiday/second Chance/best friends to lovers story.

I plan on one clicking the previous books and the subsequent books.

This has one of my favorite tropes: friends-to-lovers. Add to that Hockey hotties and you got a good mix. This was pretty realistic and emotional without too much angst. As you delved deeper into the story you find more layers in each character. It was a perfect read for this moment in my life. Like a V8, Jennifer Snow, Thanks I needed that.
The Romance Book Disciple (Samantha)

Maybe This Christmas is a friends-to-lovers sports romance with a holiday theme! Emma, once an Olympic bound athlete, is a physical therapist and her best friends, Asher, is a pro hockey player. Asher is injured and needs Emma's help. Emma has been trying to work up the nerve to tell him she loves him, worried he won't return the feeling.

Asher is consumed by hockey. He welcomes his no strings sex with Emma because it doesn't interfere with his ultimate love, playing hockey. But, his injury forc

I've been looking forward to Asher's story from the very beginning and combining it with my love of holiday stories seemed to seal the deal on this book. It didn't necessarily live up to my hopes for Asher's story but it was still an enjoyable read.

Asher was a little too of a knucklehead for me with his obsession with hockey blinding him to what he had with Emma and the risk he was running of losing her. I get he had his dedication to his sport but it did grate on me a bit that he just had this

A wish, a risk and a kiss light up the season this holiday. Ms. Snow mixes business with pleasure in this friends with benefits romance. What happens when a hockey star is forced to spend the holiday with his endearingly, overbearing family? He discovers the girl he left behind is starting to look like the woman he can't live without. The people we love most are sometimes the ones we appreciate the least. Maybe This Christmas is a reminder of the precious moments and the special people that grac ...more

Maybe this Christmas is my first "holiday" read of 2017 and what a great way to start the season. I met the Westmore family in Maybe This Love where I hadn't an inkling about the sexiness of Ben's brother Asher. I'm glad to have made his acquaintance and that we get to spend sometime with in Glenwood Falls, CO.

Thank you NetGalley for the copy of Maybe This Christmas by Jennifer Snow that I read and reviewed.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a sweet romance with a sports twist that I also enjoyed. I have not read any of the previous books in the series so this is a stand alone but the others would have helped with character information.
Overall, this was a very enjoyable romance and I am giving it four out of five stars.

I am sucker for romances and books about sports so when I was grazing through Netgalley looking for future books and christmas books to come out I found "Maybe this Christmas" by Jennifer Snow. From the cover to the synopsis both items grabbed my attention right away. Who doesn't like reading about a hot hockey player?

So when I first starting reading the book I have to admit that I wasn't sure that I was going to be a fan as it kind of sounded cheesy and unrealistic... However, once I got a cou

This is the latest book in this series. If you are a hockey fan (like me) or love romances than you will enjoy these books. I know I sure have enjoyed reading these books. In fact, I don't even care that the hockey is not the main focus. Although, there are some brief moments featured on the ice. Yet, it is what transpires off the ice that counts.

Like the other books in the series, it is an engaging story set primarily in the idyllic mountain town of Glenwood Falls. This time, instead of a lot of hockey and a hot romance, it a steamy relationship between best friends.

Maybe This Christmas brings us Emma and Ash’s story. Friends for a very long time, benefits that came along quite naturally and for the most part their relationship drifted along just fine – according to Ash. He was unaware that Emma has taken that final step into love and was looking for far more than they now had, she was looking for forever.

Ash is facing, perhaps a career ending injury right before he could complete an important milestone in his career. An injury b

Asher has only had room for one love in his life since he was old enough to skate on his own: hockey. For the past several years, he has been enjoying a friends with benefits relationship with Emma and that has seemed to work out well for both of them, but lately Emma is starting to think about the future and whether they can ever be more.

When they first met, they were both professional athletes who shared a love of the thrill of competition and the adrenaline rush that came with it, bu

For Emma she was afraid Asher didn’t feel the same. At first she liked their friends with bennies but over time her heart grew wary and she wanted the whole package. When Asher gets hurt and needs to stay and get rehab she hopes this will be the

“Bedroom ?" he asked, the sound coming from deep in his throat as his light blue eyes searched hers. Westmore eyes-all three brothers had them, the only feature they shared.
She nodded, then, remembering the medical texbooks sprawled across her bed from her late night studying, she shook her head. "Couch."
He shook his head, biting her bottom lip before saying, "Too small."
"Table?"
"Too hard."
"You're strating to sound like Goldilocks," she said.”
