Delay of Game by Ari Baran

Delay of Game by Ari Baran

Delay of Game is the second book in Ari Baran’s Penalty Box series of hockey romances, and it’s a complete change of tone and pace from their début, Game Misconduct. That book was full of raw edges, an angry, sometimes violent, antagonists-to-lovers romance in which the characters were struggling with addiction, trauma and self-destructive behaviour….

Scoring Points by H.L. Day

Scoring Points by H.L. Day

H.L. Day’s Scoring Points is part of a multi-author series set in the world of Formula 1 racing – which isn’t a sport I’ve seen featured in a romance novel before. (It must have been done – I just haven’t read it!) The series includes books by popular m/m authors including Lisa Henry, Charlie Novak…

Superstar by Kate Meader

Superstar by Kate Meader

I’ve picked up a few of Kate Meader’s Chicago Rebels hockey books before. Generally, they’re fine, but not great.  This label fits Superstar perfectly. Pepper (yes, Pepper) Calhoun is the disaster-prone daughter of the Rebels’ hockey coach. She’s got a reputation as a jinx after her ex-boyfriend Kent had a career collapse following their breakup,…

The One and Only by Emily Giffin

The One and Only by Emily Giffin

The One and Only was a New York Times #1 bestseller and deservedly so. It’s the story of thirty-three-year-old sports reporter Shea Rigsby and her gradual realization that her lifelong hero-worship of football coach Clive Carter might go deeper than friendship. However, he’s twenty-two years older, is mourning the recent loss of his wife, and…

Diamond Ring by KD Casey

Diamond Ring by KD Casey

I read Unwritten Rules, KD Casey’s début for Carina Press, back in October 2021, and I’m afraid I wasn’t very impressed – I gave it a C-. I found the romance lacklustre, the chemistry lukewarm (at best) and the characters ill-defined – although it was very clear that the author has a great deal of…

Icebreaker by Hannah Grace

Icebreaker by Hannah Grace

Anastasia Allen has worked her entire life for a shot at Team USA. It looks like everything is going according to plan when she gets a full scholarship to the University of California, Maple Hills and lands a place on their competitive figure skating team. Nothing will stand in her way, not even the captain…

Contract Season by Cait Nary

Contract Season by Cait Nary

Although Contract Season is book two in Cait Nary’s Trade Season series, it can be read as a standalone; the principals from book one, Season’s Change, make a brief cameo appearance, but you don’t need to have read their story to understand this one. Like that book, this one gets off to a good start…
