Review! When It’s Right (San Francisco Thunder #3) by Victoria Denault


Griffin Sullivan is handling the ultimate balancing act. Between being a single dad to an active six-year-old and the crazy demands of his job as a hockey coach, finding love is not in the cards. But when the team’s goalie is rushed to the ER, he’s immediately captivated by the gorgeous, sassy nurse on duty… who just happens to be the sister of one his players.

Sadie Braddock has always had a big, open heart and a bit of a wild side. But since her dad got sick, she’s closed herself off to life and love. Relationships are way too complicated – and so is Griffin. He’s also funny and tender and sexy as hell. How can something that feels so right come at the worst time ever? Then again, someone to lean on may be exactly what they each need – if they’re only brave enough to take the risk.


I received a copy via NetGalley and voluntarily left a review and all opinions are my own.

I have fallen madly in love with not only Victoria Denault’s writing since the beginning of her Hometown Players series but also with the Braddock family since the beginning of the San Francisco Thunder series. The love for the Braddock’s has grown exponentially with each book in the series. So I was ecstatic to start reading When It’s Right and get to know the witty Sadie Braddock on a more personal level. Little did I know that Victoria was going to absolutely melt my heart with the hottest hockey coach around, Grant Sullivan. Put Sadie and Grant together and you will for sure experience weak knees, heart palpitations, and hot flashes because these two are all heart with explosive desire!

Sadie has had a soft spot in my heart since I met her in Score, the first book in this series, and I couldn’t wait to get to know more about this spitfire/nightingale. She has always been a pillar of strength for her family and now they need her more than ever with her Dad being ill. She brought me to my knees emotionally with her backbone of steel and courageousness to always be the strong one in the family. Little does she know that she is going to find a man that will fulfill all her fantasies and be the shoulder that she needs to lean on in times like these.

Grant Sullivan couldn’t get any hotter if he tried, with his delicious muscles, sexy intensity, and love for his daughter he is swoon worthy from beginning to end. I loved everything about this hero, especially when he agreed to be there for the ever stubborn and strong Sadie. Nothing is sexier than a man who can give his all in and out of the bedroom and Grant does that whether it is for his daughter, family, or Sadie.

Victoria Denault delivers a love story that has you swimming in emotions and love for everyone in the Braddock family and shows us that love doesn’t go by a time table…it happens when it happens. I highly recommend When It’s Right for a romance that isn’t superficial and still has lots of heat to keep your heart pumping as your eyes are crying for these amazingly real characters. Victoria Denault has made me a fan girl from the moment I opened the first book by her and has kept me constantly obsessing over her hockey hotties. I cannot wait to see if she gives us a story for the last Braddock sister and what kind of steam and emotions she will create for us.
