Check Please!

Have y’all ever read graphic novels? I didn’t for a really long time - I wasn’t sure where to start, I thought they were all comics, I had no idea what to do… It all felt overwhelming. I’m not a huge action fan so I didn’t want to read any that focused on that. However, over the past sev ...

My Christmas Charade

My Christmas Charade, an-enemies-to-lovers trope story, is the final installment in Melanie Ting's Holiday Hat Trick series and it's my favourite of the bunch! Em works as an economic forecaster and she wants her love life to be as smooth and well-planned as her day job. She's recently met Thomas, w ...

You Had Me at Hockey

Kelly Jamieson’s new hockey romance series adds another sweet and pleasant chapter to its fold with You Had Me at Hockey. Josh – Hellsy - Heller gets the news dropped on him out of the blue; he’s being traded from the Dallas Stars to the New York Bears, replacing a recently-resigned member ...

Trade Deadline

I'm a fan of sports romances and hockey themed ones in particular. I read and enjoyed Avon Gale and Piper Vaughn's Off the Ice and while I missed the second in the Hat Trick series, Goalie Interference, I got back into the game with Trade Deadline. It's a well told story of a man ready for his caree ...

Common Goal

Rachel Reid’s Game Changers series of hockey romances continues with Common Goal, the fourth book in the set and easily one of the best.  It’s a gorgeous May/December romance between a silver-fox goalie close to retirement, and a bartender sixteen years his junior; it’s tender, funny, emotion ...

Always Only You

I’ll be honest, I knew very little about this book when I requested it.  I saw the lovely cartoon cover featuring a hockey player (I like them, btw), read the blurb, crossed my fingers and hoped for the best.  Friends, the risk paid off.  I mostly enjoyed Always Only You, the second novel in th ...

The Dare

Elle Kennedy is one of my favorite authors for new adult college sports romances and The Dare is part of her Briar U spinoff of her Off Campus series. While other stories in the series have been quite fun and entertaining, this one left me somewhat disappointed, reasons for which I'll outline below. ...

My Viral Valentine

Most sports related romances tend to feature players on top tier professional teams, playing for the NFL (football), or NHL (hockey) or FIFA (soccer) for example.  Melanie Ting took a step back from that with her Vancouver Vice series, about hockey players in the junior leagues trying to make it to ...

Tough Guy

Tough Guy is book three in Rachel Reid’s Game Changers series, set in the world of professional hockey. While I wasn’t as utterly caught up in the romance here as I was in the previous book (Heated Rivalry – which made my Best of 2019 list), I nonetheless enjoyed the novel, and appreciated the ...
