My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Sometimes you just want a lovely, no angsty, story about two people meeting, liking each other, and falling in love.
Vicki Locey delivers that in spades with this book which just had me smiling from start to finish as she wove a really simple, beautiful romance between Mike and ice hockey goalie Bryn.
But, before you start to think that this would be a tad boring let’s just say the bedroom action adds enough spice to make it anything but.
Mike is surprised to find out that he has a tiny little bit of a need to be bossed around and Bryn takes that unique character attribute which makes so many goalies just a little bit nuts and turns that into a match made in heaven.
It’s not quite Dom/sub, it’s not quite Master/slave, it’s really not anywhere on the BDSM spectrum at all if I’m honest, but it’s seriously hot and chock full of emotionally connected chemistry which oozes off the page.
Add in a super cute four-year-old, a supportive and loving younger sister, great teammates and a lack of any miscommunication or dramady and this book’s a total winner. The only reason I’ve not given it the full 5* is because I’d have liked just a teeny bit more before the relationship became serious.
But, that’s totally on me, the narrative absolutely works as it is and there’s nothing missing from it at all, I’m just greedy!
