When love is on the line, the worst decisions can end up having the best endings.

Tate Collins, an all-American hockey phenomenon, was the highly marketable face of Dallas hockey. Loaded down with endorsements and playing his best game, he was a superstar and a household name. No one ever expected him to fail, but overnight, after the worst decision of his life, everything spirals out of his control. Abruptly, his reputation is in tatters, and he’s traded to the Arizona Raptors in a shocking move.

Brushing off the wild and unfounded accusations that he faces on social media, and stuck on the second line, he keeps his head down and works hard to earn his spot. Tate knows he can make a difference if only his teammates would let him. Something has to change for him to earn their respect, but falling for the captain might not be his best move.

Vladislav Novikov has been called many things over his long and illustrious career, but the new nickname of Iceberg seems to fit best. Perhaps it’s due to his icy blue eyes, or the way he rams into opposing players as he defends his goalie. Or maybe it’s because of his cool demeanor when not playing the game he loves. Whatever the reason, it’s why he’s the perfect team captain for this wild bunch of puck-pushers.

His perfectly controlled life is smooth as ice until Tate Collins rides into Tucson with his apple pie ways and those damn dimples. The young superstar immediately catches his eye. Despite knowing better than to start something with a teammate, the big, bad Iceberg is about to have that chilly veneer around his heart melted away by Tate one sweet kiss at a time.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I do love this Raptors series from RJ and Vicki.

Book four centres on Russian defenceman and captain Vlad and the All-American golden boy Tate and a fierce attraction that won’t be denied.

There’s relatively low angst, it’s suitably steamy and the drama never feel like it’s just there to make up a plot.

Filled with humour and a sense of found family within all the new guys on the team, it was just what I needed.

Can’t wait to see what’s up next for free-spirited goalie Coronado Penn.

#ARC kindly received from the authors in return for an honest and unbiased review.

What happens when a man who is always alone meets a man who never is?

Sergei is the leader within the Russian immigrant community in Raleigh and the head of his family. He is a successful businessman who has carefully cultivated his intimidating persona, not correcting people when they believe him to be the head of the area’s Russian mob. Everyone comes to him if they have a problem. His problem is that he doesn’t know how to tell them no, especially his sister.

Stuart spends a lot of time alone, working from home as a graphic and website designer. He doesn’t want to be alone, but it’s simply how things have worked out. Stuart was devastated when his mother let his stepfather kick him out of the house as soon as he graduated high school.

Working two—and sometimes three—jobs to put himself through college didn’t leave him a lot of time to socialize. He has had to look out for himself for a long time now and finds it hard to let anyone in. Becoming friends with Lee Clark at Everyone’s Mechanic is one of the best things that has ever happened to him and it leads to him meeting Sergei.

Sergei has to break through Stuart’s protective shell and give him a home and family. Stuart needs to teach Sergei that it’s okay to have boundaries, even with loved ones.

Excerpt

Stuart turned toward him, and Sergei found himself staring into his deep chocolate brown eyes for a moment before Stuart turned his back and got busy cleaning up the cake mess.

“You don’t have to stay. There’s not much left to do. I’m sure you’re very busy.”

Sergei came up behind him and wrapped his arms around Stuart. “I am not too busy for you. In case I did not make my intentions clear, I am very interested in you. I deeply regret that I failed to get your number before I left the wedding those weeks ago. I also deeply regret that I did not search you out sooner, since now you doubt our connection.”

Sergei felt a shudder go through Stuart then had to strain to hear the whispered, “Why?”

“Why what?”

“Why would you be interested in me? I am so not in your league.”

“Do you not feel our connection too?”

“Yeah, but…”

Sergei tightened his arms around Stuart. “The connection is what is important. The people involved are who are important. I don’t even know this ‘league’ you speak about.”

Stuart turned his head to look at Sergei, staring into his eyes and obviously trying to decide how sincere he was. “That’s easy for you to say. You’re the star player in the league. I’m the kid nobody picks who is sitting on the sideline.”

Sergei grabbed Stuart’s shoulder and turned him around so they were face to face. Leaning in, he pressed some of his weight into Stuart, holding him against the counter. “And yet I see you, and I am picking you.” Sergei watched Stuart furrow his eyebrows and bite his lip. “Say what it is you want to say.”

“How long?”

“How long what?”

“How long will you pick me? One night? Is that what you’re looking for?”

“No. I’m not looking for just one night. As I said, we have a connection. I would really like to see where this connection takes us.”

“Exclusively?”

“Why? Are you dating others?” Sergei growled the question, not liking the idea of anyone else dating Stuart at all.

Stuart barked out a laugh. “Hardly. You’re the one photographed with a different person on your arm every week.”

“I am told you didn’t know who I was at the wedding. Did you google me?” Sergei was charmed by the blush rising up Stuart’s face. “Ah-h.” Sergei relaxed, putting more of his weight against Stuart. “To answer your question, I will only date you and you will only date me, until such time as we decide differently together.” Sergei held up his hand to stop Stuart from speaking. “So that you are aware, I don’t plan on that being any time soon, if ever. I am a man who knows what I want when I see it, and I am rarely wrong in my instincts.
