BLOG TOUR & REVIEW - MF - In the Penalty Box by Lynn Rush and Kelly Anne Blount

 The Cutting Edge meets Friday Night Lights in a sizzling new hockey romance from bestselling authors Kelly Anne Blount and Lynn Rush!



In the Penalty Box 

by Lynn Rush and Kelly Anne Blount  

Genre: YA Contemporary 

Release Date: January 5, 2021

Entangled Teen! 



Willow: Figure skating was supposed to be my whole world. But one unlucky injury and now I’m down...but I’m definitely not out. I just need to rehab—a boatload of rehab—and who’d have thought I could do it on the boys’ hockey team? Of course, the infuriatingly hot captain of the team seems to think I’m nothing but sequins and twirls. What’s a girl to do but put him in his place? Game on. 


Brodie:  Hockey is my whole world. I’ve worked my tail off getting my team in a position to win the championships—hopefully in front of major college scouts, too—so what’s a guy to do when a figure skater ends up as our new goalie? Of course, the distractingly sexy skater thinks I’m nothing but a testosterone-laced competitive streak. And surely she’s only biding her time to heal, then she’s gone. Game over.

My Rating - 4 Stars!

In the Penalty Box is a fun high school romance by Lynn Rush and Kelly Anne Blount. I love a good young adult romance, and the story of Brody and Willow hits all the marks. 

It took me a little while to truly access whether or not I liked both characters. It has some slow sections, including the beginning, but I am glad I kept reading. 

Brody's a rich hockey player who meets the injured former figure skater, Willow. What follows is a tale of some boys not wanting a girl on their team. There's also some issues with an opposing team. 

The injury aspect is the leading factor here, as Sabrina can't figure skate after being injured. When Brody wants her on his hockey team, it affords them a chance to grow closer, as well as a chance to keep getting stronger in hopes of figure skating again. 

The forbidden romance aspect is ever looming over their heads, as their coach has installed a no fraternization rule. It's a romance with some tough decisions and angst. 

Overall, I enjoy In the Penalty Box and I love the ending. This Lynn Rush and Kelly Anne Blount tale is an entertaining read and a good choice when you're in the mood for a m/f young adult romance.
