One attraction – a secret kept between friends for years.

That’s all it took to start one of the biggest love affairs to hit the NY Otters since Gavin and Myla. After getting his heart stomped on by a cheating ex-wife, Will Crosby doesn’t know what he’s going to do next, but it’s not a relationship. Instead, he throws his entire self into the net, guarding it with his life. After all, he is the goalie.

Everything is finally coming together in his life until the cute bartender with her smart mouth and huge smile gets the better of him, right as the playoffs are around the corner.

Crosby now has to prove himself not only to his team, but also to the girl who has stolen his heart.

Review:

 

3.5 stars

This would be a higher rated read if we didn’t have the Daddy, little girl lines in there during sexual things, that is a major turn off for me in a book. But otherwise I really enjoyed this book.

I love sports books so overall this was no exception. Will had his heart broken 5 years ago, and yet, he had a secret crush on Jordan…Jordan has held feelings for Will since she first met him. One dare later and Jordan and Will admit there is something between them, and sparks fly.

With some sports books we don’t actually get the “sports” but this one we do, we read often about practice or games, and that is always an added bonus to me. But is a playoff beard a real thing? It should be! lol

Overall it was a fun quick read.

Kicking Reality by Kat T. Masen

Title: Kicking Reality
Author: Kat T. Masen
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: May 28, 2017
Blurb
Emerson
Everyone
thinks they know who I am. I’m that reality TV star that fell in love with
co-star Wesley Rich. But reality wasn’t my life. It was the life I lived in
front of the cameras.
A life
designed to entertain millions of watchers each Monday night.
It only
took one night to relive my past, and one night to forget my future. With
someone who had been there all along.
Logan
Soccer is
my life—it’s in my blood.
I train
hard, I play hard, and I win.  Nothing
will break my focus.
I should
have been able to avoid it, resist the temptation. But it’s there, playing
every Monday night, an obsession I can’t seem to shake.
And I don’t
know what was harder: hiding it from my best friend, or watching the woman I
want live a life with someone else.

Excerpt

“You honestly believe all that rubbish? Falling in love? They knew from the start? C’mon. It’s impossible,” I ramble to myself as Logan quietly stands at the edge. “You can spend a whole lifetime knowing someone and still feel unsure if the love is there. Two minutes in a bar and that person is your soulmate? Ludicrous.”

Logan turns his neck, body following until we’re facing each other. His presence radiates with superiority, just like when we were kids. I wasn’t afraid back then and I am not afraid now. His tough-guy persona doesn’t frighten me one bit.

“Hypocritical coming from someone engaged to a man that swore he fell in love with you the moment he saw you?” he questions, sarcasm lacing every word that left his mouth.

The shock of his words cripples my ability to respond with a witty comeback. We weren’t having a good ol’ laugh throwing worms in the bottom of Ash’s school bag anymore. And my initial reaction to his cruel words does nothing to calm the sea of emotions ravaging inside me. Logan Carrington was one of them. They all came from the same seed. The seed of men that felt entitled. Screw women, move on, fuck feelings and repeat.

“Knock, knock . . . anyone home?”“You’re a jerk,” I mutter.

Author Bio

Review

I love a good sports book, and this one was no exception.  This also had the element of best friend’s sister, which always makes for a great story.  Emerson is a reality tv star, who recently got engaged to her boyfriend Wesley, on air of course.  But all it took was one trip home for everything to change.  She had been friends with Logan as long as she could remember.  Their banter throughout this book was top notch also.  But he was off limits.  But having just found out her fiancé was cheating, she gave into a moment with Logan.  This of course changed everything for both of them.  Nothing was easy.  Ash and Emerson are twins, and they are great fun together and you can tell that they are close.
Logan and Ash have some great banter also.  I love her entire family and Logan is basically family also.  This is a great friends to lovers story with some added drama.
Once I started I had trouble putting this book down.  Also, if you love angst, this book has so much that you can’t help but root for them to be happy together!

the last guy blurb

 

Blurb

 

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and international bestselling author Tia Louise.

Â

The first rule of office romance is don’t do it—-especially if your dream is to hold the anchor spot on the nightly news and your boss is trying to get you fired.

Â

But one look at Cade Hill, the sexy new sports director, and uptight reporter Rebecca Fieldstone is daydreaming about other things.

 

Sex in his office¦

Sex in the on-set kitchen¦

Sex in the supply closet¦

 

She can’t stop thinking about the former NFL quarterback and how perfect he’d look between her sheets — except he’s an arrogant jerk with a huge¦ego.

 

He’s the last guy she’d ever have a one-night stand with.

Â

Cade Hill draws a thick professional line on office romance until it comes to the hyper-focused Rebecca. He wants her, and he gets his wish when a chance encounter has them having the hottest sex of their lives.

It’s just a hook-up, she says.

When can we do it again? he says.

With Rebecca determined to keep Cade in the friend zone, it’s going to be an uphill battle for Cade to convince her he’s the last guy she’ll ever want.

 

THE LAST GUY is the first white-hot CONTEMPORARY ROMANTIC COMEDY from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and Tia Louise. It features Fireball-fueled hookups, Doritos Locos Tacos, attack monkeys, toddlers in tiaras, and one fabulous drag queen. Prepare for frantic clicking (or page flipping!) and smoking-hot sexy times all the way to the out-of-this-world happily-ever-after.

 

About the Author

WANTED: Single dad needs nanny–In more ways than one.

Martin “Brick” Bricker is living the good life. He’s playing the sport he loves, has all the women he can handle, and parties like a rock star. At twenty-six, he has no interest in slowing down or taking anything seriously–except hockey, of course.

Then a knock at his door changes everything.Suddenly he’s the single father to a five-year-old daughter he didn’t know he had, and he’s trading his playboy ways for Barbies.

Amelia Stacey struggles to make ends meet and juggles her day-care job with a full load of college classes. When she’s offered a temporary, two-week nanny position making more money than she imagines, she jumps at the chance. Before she knows it, she’s in over her head, not just with her five-year-old charge but with the girl’s hot single father.

Brick always goes after what he wants, and he wants Amelia. Only responsible Amelia doesn’t want anything to do with the party boy. Struggling with fatherhood and his unexplainable attraction to his nanny, Brick has to figure out where his daughter and Amelia fit into his life.If they fit at all.

But one thing’s for sure: Brick can’t block this shot straight to his heart.

About MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY:

Hands down, my favorite thing in the world is to score. Touchdowns.

Don’t let the fact that I’m the leading pick in the Most Valuable Playboy charity auction fool you. These days, I’m only a player on the field. I’ve kept my pants zipped all season long — and it has been long — because nothing’s more important than leading my team to victory every week. Except maybe escaping from the owner’s handsy-as-hell sister who seems dead set on winning more than a date with me at the auction.

Enter Violet and a well-placed Hail Mary.

She’s my best friend’s sister with a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash. After Violet saves the day with the highest bid, I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend. Which would be fine except my agent tells me the next day that we’ve got to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract.

Violet says she’ll take one for the team and pretend to be mine, but our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport. And soon enough, I want this game with her to go into overtime. The problem is — I’ve been riding the bench for years.

How can a guy like me, who finally has a chance to prove his worth on the field, convince the girl she’s most valuable to his heart?

*MOST VALUABLE PLAYBOY is a brand new standalone sports romance written in the guy’s POV!*

Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny by Cindi Madsen

**Review at the bottom

Release Date: May 8, 2017

Synopsis

Confession #1: I used to be a puck bunny, but after a hockey player broke my heart, I gave up all things hockey. Now I’m just focused on finding a way to pass my math class so I can graduate college.

Confession #2: Ryder “Ox” Maddox’s deep, sexy voice sends fuzzy tingles through my entire body, and I’m powerless to stop it. Which is a big problem since the hot, surprisingly funny hockey player is my new math tutor.

Confession #3: I can’t stop thinking about how ripped Ryder is from all his hockey training, and how fun it’d be to cross lines with him.

Confession #4: I kissed a hockey player and I liked it.

Confession #5: If I’m not careful, I might relapse and fall for Ryder, and then I’ll be totally pucked.

About the Author

USA Today Bestselling author Cindi Madsen sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting, revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.

<!–

When I got this book I did not know it was book 4 in a series, but with that said, it didn’t make it hard to follow. (the couples were just obviously already together)…Lindsay vowed to never fall for a hockey player again, but Ryder wasn’t like all the other guys. I loved that he didn’t give up on her, even when he knew she was avoiding him. (And with that said, I didn’t find him creepy at all). But he got the in he needed with Lindsay when it came to him being a math tutor and her needing help. And that little in was all either one of them really needed.

BUT….let’s know that things are not just smooth sailing from there, I love the ups and downs and really here fight to stay away from what “she used to be” which was a puck bunny.

Ryder though is so much more then a hockey player, and he didn’t always have an easy life as his dad was an NHL player so he expects greatness from Ryder, Ryder wants a back up plan. Lindsay wants to edit novels which I love that it is something different.

This book is at times funny, sad, heartwarming, maddening, sexy and a little bit of everything rolled into one!
