My rating: 5 of 5 stars
RJ and VL kick off their latest ice hockey series with a rollercoaster of a ride filled with sharp dialogue and a pair of men who couldn’t be more different if they tried.
This is an offshoot of the Raiders and Owatonna series’ so there’s familiar faces as well as new editions to the roster and I loved them all
Mark is prickly, forced to survive on his own aged just 16, he’s forged a successful career and doesn’t need the family who failed to support him.
Rowen had a promising professional ice hockey future ahead of him until an undiscovered condition forced him into early retirement.
There’s miscommunication between them from the off, but the sparks fly just as hard and neither can deny the attraction.
I loved how much they butted heads while also unconsciously supporting the other through the turbulence of a team that’s on the edge of collapse.
This isn’t an overly steamy romance, they burn up the sheets a time or two but most is referenced in passing.
Events occur which I won’t spoil, but let’s just say I’m a vicious bitch who wanted far far worse for one particular #$#@%% defender than he actually gets.
I can’t wait to read more about the team the rest of this ice hockey world loves to hate!
