Going for gold cost world-class hockey athlete Hailey Dobson everything. She may have walked away with the medal, but everything else in her life is a disaster. She has no job, no place to live, limited savings and six long months until the check comes with the money for law school. The only bright spot is her long-distance relationship with a professional hockey star.

 

Kane “Hattrick” Hatcher got his nickname because scoring three goals in a single game was his thing. But when he gets traded to a new team in Alaska, he has three new obstacles to overcome: His game is off, the coach is riding his ass and the girl he’s crazy about lives on the other side of the continent.

 

When an unexpected opportunity brings them back together for the summer, they find that the consequences of their actions may leave them playing co-captains for life. Neither Kane nor Hailey are prepared for this game changer. With everything on the line, can two over-achievers overcome adversity off the ice?

Holding Hailey (Alaska Blizzard, Book 2)Holding Hailey by Kat Mizera
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is book # 2 in the Alaska Blizzard series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Hailey has just come back from winning a Gold medal and going on tour. She gets home and has many surprises in store. A couple of these surprises are going to change her life completely.

Kane wants to see Hailey again. They met at the Olympics and he was so proud of her winning gold. They have had a couple great dates up to now and the chemistry between them is so hot it should have caught him on fire! He is hoping he can talk her into being with him for a while.

This is a book with the heat turned up. Right from the start you see this couple hot for one another and have much in common, including hockey. The banter is good, the pace is a little fast, but the overall story is right on.

About the Author:

 

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.

 

Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach.

 

Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

 

As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

Heat Exchange By Shannon Stacey Free!!
Heat Exchange (Boston Fire) - Shannon Stacey

Lydia Kincaid’s shipping back to Boston, but she’s not happy about it. She left to get away from the firefighting community—her father was a firefighter, her brother’s a firefighter and, more importantly, her ex is a firefighter. But family is number one and her father needs her help running the pub he bought when he retired. Soon, Lydia finds it hard to resist the familiar comfort and routine, and even harder to resist her brother’s handsome friend Aidan.

Aidan Hunt is a firefighter because of the Kincaid family. He’s had the hots for Lydia for years, but if ever a woman was off-limits to him it’s her. Aside from being his mentor’s daughter, she’s his best friend’s sister. The ex-wife of a fellow firefighter. But his plan to play it cool until she leaves town again fails, and soon he and Lydia have crossed a line they can’t un-cross.

As Aidan and Lydia’s flirtation turns into something more serious, Lydia knows she should be planning her escape. Being a firefighter’s wife was the hardest thing she’s ever done and she doesn’t know if she has the strength to do it again. Aidan can’t imagine walking away from Boston Fire—even for Lydia. The job and the brotherhood are his life; but if he wants Lydia in it, he’ll have to decide who’s first in his heart.

*deep long sigh... and another half-assed HEA crossed from my list
An Intriguing Proposition - Sydney Jane Baily

First and foremost, I am not familiar with the work of Sydney Jane Baily. I have never read any of her books and this is the first time I have heard of her. I stumbled onto this prequel on InstaFreebie and I gave it a fair chance. 

 

This book is a prequel to The Defiant Hearts series and it is not a full length novel, it has 98 pages and only comes in ebook format. 

 

To keep things nice and short, here's my honest opinion about An Intriguing Proposition.

 

This book skips on the worldbuilding and any character development. It throws you in the midst of a story that deserves a whole prequel of its own. Irony is that this is a damn prequel. We only get the basics of a plot, if I can even call it that, that is summed into a few sentences. The rest of the story is an unbelievable mess of the most idiotic coincidences and stupid people who think they are in love because they saw each other once in a bank and exchanged a few words. 

 

I am not going to dwell too much on all the bad things, and trust me there's a whole damn list of them, but I am going to mention a few good things. I liked the setting of a story and in its very essence, the idea of the story. The final product did not turn out well but I give credit for the idea alone and a few quirky lines of dialogue that made me smile, well, I had a hint of a smile on my face at the very least.

 

I honestly hope that this book does not reflect on the rest of this series nor on the author's work in general. I am of the opinion that everyone deserves a second chance so I will most likely give this author one more chance if I come across one of her books. But it has to be said that people with a sharp mind, good wit and even mediocre intelligence will probably not like this book because even on the lower HEA standards this is not a success.

 

If anyone happens to know if any of the author's other books are better, I am happy to note it down and put it on my to-read list.

In the bleak midwinter
Serpents in the Cold (The Boston Saga) - Douglas Graham Purdy,Thomas O'Malley

Wow, but this was one heck of a bleak read. Both the main characters are pretty messed up individuals caught up in murky dealings between Boston's criminal underworld and some crooked politicians.

 

Everything is so depressing. The winter lasts forever with nothing to relieve the cold. The Bruins have failed to make the playoffs and every single person seems to think the only way to solve any problems is to shoot it, or beat it to a pulp.

 

By the end of the book I was praying for the start of the baseball season and some warmer weather.

Reading progress update: I've read 193 out of 400 pages.
Serpents in the Cold (The Boston Saga) - Douglas Graham Purdy,Thomas O'Malley

"What did she do for the office?"

 

"What we all do there. Lots of filing, answering phones, meeting and greeting, taking notes. Basic office work. And even though it's not rocket science, she didn't do too well at it."

 

Wait a minute.... Not rocket science? This book is set in 1951, and I know rocket science has been around since then, but this idiom has always seemed fairly modern to me. So I did a bit of digging and it looks as if I was right.
