Season's Change (Trade Season #1) by Cait Nary

 







A veteran hockey player and a rookie can't get away from each other—or their own desires—in this sexy, heartfelt opposites-attract hockey romance.  

Olly J√§rvinen has a long way to go. He’s got a fresh start playing for a new team, but getting his hockey career back on track is going to take more than a change of scenery. He’s got to shut his past out and focus. On the game, not on his rookie roommate and his annoyingly sunny disposition—and annoyingly distracting good looks.

All Benji Bryzinski ever wanted was to play in the big leagues, and he’s not going to waste one single second of his rookie season. Yoga, kale smoothies and guided meditation help keep his head in the game. But his roommate keeps knocking him off track. Maybe it’s just that Olly is a grumpy bastard. Or maybe it’s something else, something Benji doesn’t have a name for yet.

Olly and Benji spend all their time together—on the ice, in the locker room, in their apartment—and ignoring their unspoken feelings isn’t making them go away. Acting on attraction is one thing, but turning a season’s fling into forever would mean facing the past—and redefining the future.

Trade Season

Book 1: Season's Change






My Rating - 5 Stars!

Season's Change is a fabulous hockey romance by Cait Nary. 

Damn! I love this book. 

It's a super hot romance full of tension and steamy moments. 

A player falling for his roommate and teammate; what more could you ask for? 

For Benji, he discovers his bisexual side, with some feelings developing, and a super hot threesome sparking things further. Ollie meanwhile, has plenty of his own issues to deal with, including some past traumatic events. 

The writing is great, as Cait had me both laughing and crying at times, fully pulled into the emotions throughout. There are a bunch of secondary characters who add to the fun. Everyone is fabulous and easy to fall in love. I love a good sports romance and this one is just that. The sports parts of the story are well done, and I adore the relationship. 

Love it all! 

Season's Change is a must read the next time you're in the mood for a sports romance. Cait Nary will not disappoint in this slow burn, bisexual awakening gem.

The Long Game (Game Changers #6) by Rachel Reid

 



Amazon Link - Available in KU ?????
Goodreads Link




The sequel is finally here! Shane and Ilya’s story, first seen in Heated Rivalry, continues in this long-awaited hockey romance from Rachel Reid.

"Everything you could want from this magnetic couple! A passionate, sexy, emotional sequel that grips your heart! Shane and Ilya forever!" —#1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely, author of Hopelessly Bromantic

To the world they are rivals, but to each other they are everything.

Ten years.

That’s how long Shane Hollander and Ilya Rozanov have been seeing each other. How long they’ve been keeping their relationship a secret. From friends, from family…from the league. If Shane wants to stay at the top of his game, what he and Ilya share has to remain secret. He loves Ilya, but what if going public ruins everything?

Ilya is sick of secrets. Shane has gotten so good at hiding his feelings, sometimes Ilya questions if they even exist. The closeness, the intimacy, even the risk that would come with being open about their relationship…Ilya wants it all.

It’s time for them to decide what’s most important—hockey or love.

It’s time to make a call.


Game Changers
Book 1: Game Changer
Book 2: Heated Rivalry
Book 3: Tough Guy
Book 4: Common Goal
Book 5: Role Model
Book 6: The Long Game





My Rating - 5 Stars!

The Long Game is a fabulous addition to the Game Changers series. I love this Rachel Reid romance where we get more of Shane and Ilya from Heated Rivalry.

If you follow sports, you know how tough it is to be an out and proud professional hockey player. This beautiful story perfectly conveys the reasons to sometimes stay closeted, while also tugging at your heartstrings with the unfairness of it all.

Shane and Ilya have been together for ten years. And they're still hiding their love from the world. Their connection is solid and strong, and is well worth the read. 

This is a romance full of hockey, rivalries, sneaking around, and a whole lot of emotion. The chemistry and passion jumps off the pages. And the ups and downs, including the pain of being apart during the season, are felt throughout.

The writing is great, with a compelling storyline and charming characters. Both men are fully brought to life making it easy to fall in love with them; especially Ilya. You just have to love the Russian player. 


The Long Game is a wonderful addition to the Game Changers series. I adore every moment of this Rachel Reid romance and highly recommend it when you're in the mood for a sports romance.

Robbie

As social chair of Sigma Beta Psi, I’m the life of the party. It’s what I’m known for, and if it’s not fun, I’m not interested, simple as that.
I’m not someone who overthinks.
So when one of my brothers hooks up with a dude from another frat house, it catches me off guard when I can’t stop thinking about them … together.
There’s only one way for me to get this obsession out of my head and that’s by jumping in with both feet and putting it into practice.
The problem is, the one guy who’s up for the ride, is the last one I’d expect.


Brandon

Being risk manager of a frat house is nobody’s idea of a good time. My brothers get annoyed when I put a damper on their plans, and wrangling drunken frat brothers isn’t how I pictured my Saturday nights of senior year.
I’m bored.
In a rut.
Study, frat duties, planning for the future.
When is it my turn to let loose for a moment?
So when my dumb-as-bricks frat bro is scoping out the house for a little experimenting fun, I throw out the offer like it isn’t the most nerve-wracking thing I’ve ever considered.
I never imagined I’d actually enjoy it.

RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW - MF - Deking the Beauty (Metros Hockey #3) by Crystal Perkins

 



Deking The Beauty by Crystal Perkins is now live!



From author Crystal Perkins comes an all new fake relationship, older brother's best friend romance set in her Metros Hockey Series.



Santo

I'm the "beauty" of the Seattle Metros. The nice guy who always has a smile for the media and the fans. Until I have an "off day" at an event. Coupled with some on ice accidents, I go from fan favorite to pariah. To help my image, it's suggested I tone down my playboy ways and at least pretend to be in a serious relationship. Even if that fake relationship is with my best friend's little sister.

Nita 

I've been in love with Santo since he was the boy next door when we were growing up. He's never seen me as more than his best friend's little sister, but now he needs my help. Being his girlfriend is all I've ever wanted, so a few months with him is like a dream come true. But, the dream turns into a nightmare when things become real between us, and he walks away.

With more than just the two of them to consider, can the Saint overcome his fears about relationships? And can Nita trust him to stay when she needs him the most?

My Rating - 4.5 Stars!

Deking the Beauty is the third book in the Metros Hockey series. This Crystal Perkins book is easily read as a standalone. 

There's a lot going on in this riveting read. There's brother's best friend, long time pining, fake romance, and plenty more. 

Nina and Santo make for a fun couple. You have to love Nina for standing up for herself, despite being head over heels in love with Santo. I enjoy the way they come together, with Nina helping to clean up his image. This is always a fun plotline and these two certainly didn't let me down. Of course, Santo has a lot to deal with, and doesn't always handle himself in the best manner. 

As for the show stealer, that has to be Nina's father. Omg, I absolutely love him!

The writing is great, the characters charming, and the storyline delightful. And you'll love the humor, which had me laughing out loud in spots. 

Overall, I love Deking the Beauty. I couldn't put this Crystal Perkins book down, reading it as quickly as possible. I highly recommend it the next time you're in the mood for a sports romance.

My Rating - 4.5 Stars!


Tutoring the Player is a riveting college sports romance. The first book in the Campus Wallflower series, I can't wait to read the rest of this Rebecca Jenshak series. 

This is pure fun and deliciousness! 

There's opposites attract, falling for the tutor, and plenty more. 

Daisy and Jordan make for a fabulous couple. She's the quiet wallflower, while he's the popular, life of the party athlete. They certainly don't seem like they'd make a good couple, but hot damn, they definitely do!

I adore the way their friendship develops, with all the nice getting to know each other moments. I enjoy the tension between them, and I love their chemistry together. 

Tutoring the Player is a perfect choice the next time you're in the mood for some college romance fun. As usual, Rebecca Jenshak will keep you entertained throughout with some humor, some heat, and a delightful storyline.

MF - Forever Perfect (Perfect #4) by Alison G. Bailey

  







Sometimes in love, the person who’s your future isn't always your destiny…


Forever Perfect by Alison G. Bailey is now live! 


I was five years old when I met the love of my life. He was my best friend's older brother, but he was also my friend. We shared popsicles, we hunted for shark teeth on Folly Beach, and told each other secrets. But everything changed when we became teenagers. Brandon no longer wanted to have anything to do with me. I was a pest. Something to ignore. I hated that he tossed away our friendship.

Although he broke my heart, it still fluttered when he looked at me, was near me, and touched me. But eventually he would look away, push away, and walk away. Finally, I realized you can't make someone love you even if they were supposed to be your forever.

My Rating - 4.5 Stars!

Forever Perfect is a great brother's best friend romance by Alison G Bailey. This is the fourth book in the Perfect series and is easily read as a standalone. 

I can never resist a brother's best friend romance. And this is my favorite kind, as Halle and Brandon have known each other growing up. They were even good friends...until they weren't.

Their story is told with time jumps, as we get to see the past and the present. And the present starts with Brandon hating Halle, creating a nice enemies to lovers storyline. And damn, their story is full of pain and obstacles, but their love is well worth the journey.

The writing is great, with an intriguing storyline and two interesting characters. The story is fast paced, with everything flowing nicely. There are definitely some tough subject matters, so be warned. 

Overall, Forever Perfect is a great read. I love this Alison G Bailey book, as it's full of all the feels. I definitely recommend it the next time you're in the mood for a brother's best friend romance.
