A bit lacking in tension but still an overall enjoyable romance

48999098._SY475_Trade Deadline by Avon Gale & Piper Vaughn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this one but it was definitely less tension driven than the others in the series have been.

The main drama points came from uncertainty about Daniel’s ice hockey future and Micah’s internalising fears over their relationship long term.

That’s not to say that it wasn’t a good narrative though, I did still love the setting and I adored all the stuff with Micah’s job as a marine biologist.

I also really appreciate it when authors have strong female characters and don’t make ex wives of girlfriends into complete witches.

Tabby and the kids were a nice presence without being overwhelming or distracting the focus from the new relationship.

Loved seeing all the Venom guys and I liked that Daniel didn’t have some unbelievable impact on his new team, but felt realistic about the challenges of moving to a new place.

Overall another successful entry in this sports romance series from Avon and Piper.
