Product Description

Eden Christiansen never imagined her role as her younger brother Owen's cheerleader would keep her on the sidelines of her own life. Sure, it feels good to be needed, but looking after the reckless NHL rookie leaves little time for Eden to focus on her own career. She dreamed of making a name for herself as a reporter, but is stuck writing obits-and starting to fear she doesn't have the chops to land a major story. If only someone would step up to mentor Owen . . . but she knows better than to expect help from team veteran and bad-boy enforcer Jace Jacobsen.

Publisher's Description

Eden Christiansen never imagined her role as her younger brother Owen’s cheerleader would keep her on the sidelines of her own life. Sure, it feels good to be needed, but looking after the reckless NHL rookie leaves little time for Eden to focus on her own career. She dreamed of making a name for herself as a reporter, but is stuck writing obits—and starting to fear she doesn’t have the chops to land a major story. If only someone would step up to mentor Owen . . . but she knows better than to expect help from team veteran and bad-boy enforcer Jace Jacobsen.

Jace has built his career on the infamous reputation of his aggressive behavior—on and off the ice. Now at a crossroads about his future in hockey, that reputation has him trapped. And the guilt-trip he’s getting from Eden Christiansen isn’t making things any easier. But when Owen’s carelessness leads to a career-threatening injury and Eden stumbles upon a story that could be her big break, she and Jace are thrown together . . . and begin to wonder if they belong on the same team after all.

Editorial Reviews

Why you should read it: I love that author Susan May Warren is writing each book of this series to stand alone, all while growing reader affection for the tightknit Minnesota family from which her characters come. This installment in the Christiansen family saga focuses on Twin Cities¬–relocated daughter Eden, whose presence and help are often taken for granted. She is the family caretaker, the nurturer, and she has no real grip on who she is outside of that identity. With an understated loveliness just waiting to be brought to the surface, Eden is the perfect mix of tough loyalty and personal vulnerability—and she needs help to figure out who she is and what she wants out of life, rather than only enabling the pursuit of dreams for those she loves. Enter, Jace.

Oh, Jace. *fans self* This guy is a professional hockey player with longish dark curls, a bit of beard, the physique of a Scottish warrior and a past that haunts him. He is a devoted friend, cooks a mean grilled cheese, and little children don’t even think twice before curling up in his lap to listen to him read stories — with sound effects! And did I mention he can sing along with Sinatra and Bublé? *fans self again* Jace Jacobsen is total book-boyfriend material . . . and may soon be taking up residence among my “favorite tortured heroes of all time.”

If you have not added this book to your shopping cart by now, check your pulse. It Had to be You is a sigh-worthy, coming-into-her-own romance highlighting the importance of family, the necessity of faith, and how losing yourself for the right reasons can open your heart to something beautiful.

    Eden Christian has always been there for her little brother Owen ever since he was a little boy. Always cheering him on from her place in the stands as he does what he loves: plays Hockey. Only problem is, he isn't ten anymore and he is starting to resent her bossy, big sister attitude always trying to keep him out of trouble.It seems the better his Hockey career gets the more Eden sees it as her life and not Owen's. Not to mention the team's enforcer Jace Jacobsen is no help and is definitely NOT someone Eden wants around Owen. His seemingly beastly nature both on and off the ice is known by everyone and she certainly doesn't want her kid brother going that way, even if he is 20 and old enough to choose his own friends. Unfortunately the more Eden merges her life with Owen's the more he pushes her away. Then a trip to the hospital could change Owen's future forever, as well as Eden's and the rest of her family. Will they get through it and be stronger in the end? Or will there seemingly tightly woven family unravel with the pain one family member must endure? Meanwhile Jace has his hands full as well trying to figure out how to pull his Best friend's life back together again. Eden and Jace both need a break. Somehow they both end up in the same place, right in the mist of the perfect story for Eden. Will they work together to solve their problems as well as someone else's? Or will they yank apart in resentment towards one another? Are their assessments of each other correct or will they need to take another look? Find out in this wonderful story of faith, hope, love and not only sticking together but also knowing when to Let Go.

    Smile. That is the word I would use to describe this book. It just makes you want to smile. Eden and Jace are perfect characters! The Christiansen family is one I'd love to join for a family dinner. A great book overall.
