What a high note to end this fabulous sports romance series on

Puck Drills FINALPuck Drills & Quick Thrills by Eden Finley & Saxon James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Best everything!

***

I am bereft. I seriously did not want this series to end, but end it has and what a book to close out on.

Westly and Jasper are everything! They start off as sort of enemies, but they’re not really, both simply misunderstand the other and when both become privy to the traumas the other has had to live with, things rapidly change.

It’s obvious from the start they’re mutually attracted to each other, sparks fly each time they’re in the same room. We’ve also had brief peeks into their character via the other books in the series but you soon find out, that’s only scratched the surface.

West, oh West. He’s struggling so badly with looking after his orphaned siblings and trying to keep a stable home for them and he’s still not fully come to terms with everything he had to give up. We’ve seen West through Asher’s eyes Line Mates & Study Dates but that isn’t the real West.

When he and Jasper finally get it together, OMG the sexual chemistry blows your head off. All West wants to do is give up control and Jasper, because of his background, well he’s 100% on board with taking it.

I felt so much for both of them, the emotions really do get put through the ringer in this book but it’s never gratuitous, there’s also always the hallmark humour that these two authors have brought throughout the CU Universe and it was wonderful to catch up with some of those other characters.

There’s so much goes on that the book flies by and I was in two minds because I needed to find out where they would end up and whether things would work out with the team in the Frozen Four too, but I also didn’t want to turn the last page.

Honestly, I don’t want to say goodbye to CU Hockey, or the wider world of the NHL pro-leagues because it’s been so much fun.

There is a fab bonus scene to download from Prolific Works which brings things to a close with the epicness that is Jacobs’ and Beck’s wedding. You don’t want to miss that!

What May Be AN - IG

A stunningly clever – and seriously hot – romantic suspense from Layla

58314276._SY475_What We May Be by Layla Reyne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, that was clever. And insanely hot 😁

Second chance romances are so hard to write, there must be a genuine reason why people split up, but one that doesn’t make it impossible to come back from years later.

In this case, it’s 10 years later and the death of two people Sean considered family bring him back to the small town he considered home – and into the orbit of his former lovers, both intimately connected to the cops being buried – and on a collision course which only looks likely to bring more pain.

Throw in a serial killer inspired by the fate of the female characters at the heart of Shakespeare’s Four Tragedies, a pending sorrow at the life’s end of a beloved surrogate parent due to illness, complications with ex-wives, and the everyday minutiae of a small town, and you get the complexity of this book’s narrative.

I absolutely adored all three of the people at the heart of this polycule. Charlie is no weak woman, she’s tough and has got to where she is on her own merits. She’s also grieving the loss of her twin brother and her father, killed when a drugs sting she arranged went wrong.

Trevor, the third of this glorious MMF relationship, is a romantic soul, a professor and a man wiling to bury his hurt to make sure his best friend lives her best life, even if it’s killing them both.

The UST and emotional tension between the three of them flies off the pages. They’re all hunting for a reason why their lives were so fractured a decade ago.

And I was NOT expecting anything even close to the plotline which follows.

OMG so many times I thought I’d hit on who the killer was, only for a side swipe revelation to send my theory crashing.

At no point ever in the story did I guess the actual perpetrator. Not even right up to the page before the reveal!

Did I mention how clever this book was?!

Oh, I mentioned the heat didn’t I, because this is pants melting, equal opportunities loving between three people who know each other inside and out.

They are on fire! The final scene at the end causes a flush hot enough to power a nuclear reactor

ðŸĪ™ðŸ‘ŒðŸ‘ˆ ðŸ’ĨðŸ”ĨðŸ’ĶðŸĪŠðŸ’Ŋ

I’ve been in love with the interconnected Whiskeyverse Layla has created since the first time FBI Agent Aiden ‘Irish’ Talley walked across the pages of Single Malt and promptly fell for Jameson ‘Whiskey’ Walker.

This book is loosely connected to the ‘Verse through the Fog City series and we get to see Brax’s best mate Army buddy Emmitt Marshall now working for the FBI alongside Sean.

There are a couple of other Easter Egg references that I’m going to leave other people to discover but Marsh is getting his own book and I am so here for that âĪ

Layla delivers a poly romance alongside a suspense plot and never has one feel more important than the other.

It’s skilfully written, with wonderful pace and characters that come to life in brilliant detail.

Oh, and epic cover from Wander and Cate ðŸĨ°
