Absolutely delightful sports romance which hit all my favourite things about the trope

15_V&V_Kyle_ebook_FINALShowstopper by Regina Kyle

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Back on the 5* trail! Definitely one of my favourites in the series and jam packed with loads of my go to tropes.

Regina Kyle pretty much hit everything I love about college sports romances and opposites’ attract tropes in this book.

I adored both Adam and Kolby but Adam absolutely stole my heart, he is just a giant teddy bear of a young man who has a heart of gold.

Kolby is a bit prickly, understandably so given his background, but I liked that he was unashamedly himself, he doesn’t hide his sexuality, but he does hide his vulnerability. Together they’re just incredibly sweet and seriously sexy.

Adam’s had a bit of a traumatic time at his previous school, so he’s wary of exposing his bisexuality, again something the narrative plays out well. But as he spends more time with Kolby, it becomes clear that he doesn’t want to hide the connection they’ve found.

They connect on all levels, not only are they sexually attracted to each other, but they also have mutual likes and interests and they’re both determined to look out for the other, which makes not only for some really love conversations but also hot times between the sheets!

A couple of outside events add tension to the plot, there’s the odd lack of communication elements but they’re not the type which has me eye-rolling in annoyance. Both of these men are young and relatively inexperienced and they’ve both been burned before.

I didn’t feel it was out of place they’d both blow up at times and then find it difficult to make the first move to reconnect. There’s some great grovelling too, on both sides, and a fabulous secondary cast of characters not only from the Vino & Veritas world, but also pulling in from the Moo U series too.

Thoroughly enjoyed every bit of this one.

The hottest player on the Moo U hockey team hangs a flyer on the bulletin board, and I am spellbound:

Rent a boyfriend for the holiday. For $25, I will be your Thanksgiving date. I will talk hockey with your dad. I will bring your mother flowers. I will be polite, and wear a nicely ironed shirt…

Now everyone knows it’s a bad idea to introduce your long-time crush to your messed-up family. But I really do need a date for Thanksgiving, even if I’m not willing to say why. So I tear his phone number off of that flyer… and accidentally entangle our star defenseman in a ruse that neither of us can easily unwind.

Because Weston’s family is even nuttier than mine. He needs a date, too, for the most uncomfortable holiday engagement party ever thrown.

There will be hors d’oeuvre. There will be faked PDA. And there will be pro-level awkwardness…

Boyfriend is a full-length stand-alone romance for Weston and Abbi!

READ MY REVIEW

Family-According-to-Liam-Generic

Blurb

The bonds of family aren’t regulated by blood. They’re defined by love and an open heart.

Bryn and Michael Mettler have lived a life that many can only dream about. The two men had a whirlwind romance and ended up happily married. Bryn played hockey for the Pittsburgh Ravens, and Michael worked at a job he loved in web design and writing a successful humor blog. They also doted on Mike’s nephew Liam as all good uncles should.

They’ve welcomed a new member into their small but loving clan. Made strides to heal a fractured past hurt. Traveled the world and settled into their new home and lives with great joy. The only thing missing was a child of their own. That absent piece is now here, and their lives are about to change in a million charming, unexpected ways.

About The Author

USA Today Bestselling Author V.L. Locey – Penning LGBT hockey romance that skates into sinful pleasures.

V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, Torchwood and Doctor Who, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.)

She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, a pair of geese, far too many chickens, and two steers.

When not writing spicy romances, she enjoys spending her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in one hand and a steamy romance novel in the other.
