I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
When I signed on to the NHL, I promised to give 150% to the game. I’ve done that.
Little did I know, but they would ask more from me than merely my skill on the ice. The team wanted me to be their captain. It’s an honor, one I’ve done my best to fulfill. Although I can’t take all the credit, I was there to lead when we won the Stanley Cup.
I’m still at the helm now, when we’ve hit rock bottom. I know I have let my fears get in the way. I’ve let down the team, even if they don’t realize what I’ve done.
Now that the new season’s underway, I’m being called out. I deserve it. I can deal with that. It won’t be easy, but I’ll persevere.
What I can’t deal with is her.
She surprised me.
She came out of nowhere and blindsided me.
And there’s one serious issue.
Now that I have her, I refuse to let her go.
*This is a full-length, standalone novel. It is part of the Austin Arrows series, but can be read independently.
It’s no secret I’m a huge Nicole Edwards fan—but combine her talent to write funny, sexy, and complex characters with hockey, my favorites sport, and it can’t get any better.
I fell in curiosity with Spencer Kaufman in Rush, book one of the “Austin Arrows Series”, and have been wondering ever since what his story will be—which one will he end up with? Or hell, will we get another ménage book by yours truly? So many questions, no answers. Until now.
Without giving away any spoilers, I absolutely adored the road this book took. It left me wondering, in love, and definitely in lust. It’s full of the hotness we expect from Nicole Edwards, but this book was a lot more than simply that. The complex characters and interesting story line combined with Edward’s excellent writing definitely left me wanting for more.
I loved that the focus wasn’t on the sex, as it is with so many books lately, but on the character development. Don’t get me wrong, Edward’s trademark smoking hot sex scenes are present, but this book is so much more. The scenes add to the story, aren’t just there because that’s what is expected nowadays, but to enhance the storytelling. It’s a complex book with every scene having a purpose; not to just entertain, but to make us fall in love with the characters—all of them.
Overall, I adored this book and its characters. It’s an entertaining read with amazing writing, entertaining characters, and an enchanting story line which will keep you entertained from page one. “Austin Arrows” might just become one of my favorite series this year! I need the next one!
What does bother me is the fact that Mom and Dad pop in unannounced all the freaking time. Of all nights, why did it have to be now?
