Another great addition to Amy’s ice hockey series

54626294._SY475_Risking the Shot by Amy Aislin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was another great addition to this loosely connected ice hockey series.

Here we have Taylor, a teammate of Grey and Dean from book one, who has been crushing on the 11 years older single dad who works for the club’s fund-raising arm.

From the off, I really liked Dakota, his son Andy is an adorable imp, who read like a four-year-old and now some child genius, and their relationship was loving and super sweet.

I also really liked Tay, his sense of insecurity outside of the ice came across well and his maturity didn’t feel at all forced.

The main conflicts come from internal fears and they were used well to create tension without straying into the ‘lack of communication’ trope which I hate.

Lots of good secondary characters (loved Dakota’s cousin Calder, he gets a free extra scene available via Amy’s newsletter).

I also appreciated that Tay’s sisters tried to make amends for how they’d basically ignored him when they were kids and didn’t try to make excuses other than the large age gap (they’re Dakota’s age), something which had triggered most of his self isolating issues.

The sex is sweet and steamy and there’s a good build up to things becoming more serious.

The other guys from the previous books are on hand to make guest appearances, which I love in a series, and overall this was a thoroughly enjoyable read.

I’m interested to see if Tay’s best friend Stanton is going to be book five’s MC along with Xappa.

A beautiful conclusion to this fabulous Aussie romance

CoverPieces of Us by N.R. Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A stunning conclusion to one of the best series’ N.R. Walker has produced.

As Dallas and Justin continue to get used to life post his traumatic brain injury, things are moving along nicely when a figure from the past comes along to put a spanner in the works.

I’ve loved every one of these books all for the same reason – they perfectly demonstrate what loving and caring for someone else should mean.

Supportive, encouraging, Dallas is a solid rock for his Jussy as he comes to terms with how he has to cope now that his brain doesn’t work in the same way it once did.

The main thrust of this book is simply to round off all the outstanding elements which were left over from the previous two installments, and it’s a beautiful romance.

I wish I had a Dallas ❤

As Justin’s recovery moves forward, Dallas dares to hope their lives are settling into their new normal. His money worries have eased, business is picking up, and best of all, Justin now laughs more than he frowns.

Justin’s memory still eludes him, but with each snippet or flashback, small pieces of his old life start to slot into place. He remembers more of Dallas and how perfectly happy their lives used to be, and with each passing day, Justin realises he can have that again.

But when someone from Justin’s past turns up, he discovers that not all the missing pieces are good, and sadly, he and Dallas also learn just what it means to live with a traumatic brain injury.

If Dallas and Justin have to fight for their Happily Ever After, then Dallas will stop at nothing—nothing—to give Justin the life he always wanted.

“. . . as I tried to put the puzzle of myself back together, it was the pieces of us that made me whole.”

This is the final installment in this series and is not a standalone. Reading further will contain spoilers.

Excerpt

Juss got up from his seat and sat on my lap. I had to pull my chair out a bit so he could fit, but he just sat right down and put his arm around my shoulder, his forehead pressed to mine. “Remember how you said we choose our own family?”

I nodded.

“Well, I’ve chosen mine.” He kissed me soundly. Then he picked up my fork and stabbed some meat and brought it to my lips. “Open wide.”

I laughed and he shoved the fork in my mouth. “You’re gonna feed me?” I asked.

“For all the times you helped me, now it’s your turn.”

He continued to feed me until my plate was empty and he even had some more of his own. It was fun and cute, we laughed a lot, and it had been far too long since we’d done anything fun and cute. The fact that he punctuated every forkful with a kiss made it even better.

He put the fork down and turned his full attention to me. “You know,” he said with a kiss. “I slept a lot today, so I’m not too tired.”

I chuckled because I was pretty sure I knew where he was going with this. “Is that so?”

He kissed me again, a little softer, more playful. “And we did get those test results back.”

I hummed, not too sure if he was up for anything rigorous. “You’re supposed to be on bed rest.”

He smiled. “So take me to bed.”
