US AGAINST YOU by Fredrik Backman
Us Against You - Fredrik Backman
What a sequel!  It is just as intense and good as Beartown.  Us Against You picks up after Beartown ends with the summer before the next hockey season.  We find out what happens to the characters from Beartown.  The rivalry between Beartown and Hed grows as the first game approaches.  Leaders emerge while those who want to be leaders don't have the necessary qualities to become leaders.  One politician gets very involved in the hockey club and plays everyone against the other.  We see others with new eyes and we meet new members of the community. 
 
I loved this series.  I would like to see these people in 10 years time and see what happened to them.  I know I kept saying not this one or that one when it looked as if something bad was going to happen.  Not every life is successful.  Some lose what they worked so hard for.  Some find acceptance while others find more alienation.  There was a lot of truth in this book.  Sune was right when he said, "We are the community."  Never were truer words spoken.  Everything that happens, every word spoken, every thought good or bad is in our communities and it is what we foster in words and action that determine what the community is.  Us Against You is a mirror that reflects back what we all are.  Excellent!

Opposites attract…and ignite. On the ice, Justin Perry is always in control. As one of the Reading Redtails’ best defensemen, he plays with an intense focus and skates like he was born on blades. Off the ice, he’s content to keep his head down and his eyes on the prize: a spot on an NHL team. Except when Vivi Martin’s around. She’s bright, bold and beautiful and Justin can’t make himself look away.

 

Vivi can’t help but notice Justin’s interest and, yeah, she’s not immune to his awkward charm or his grin that steals her breath. But falling for another athlete who will only leave and break her heart is the last thing she needs. Been there, done that. No t-shirt required. She’s too busy working three part-time jobs to make ends meet while figuring out how to use her passion for photography to build a career.

 

Until Vivi gets a peek at what’s underneath Justin’s boy-scout exterior and discovers a tattooed hunk who rocks her world with a kiss. She’d be a fool to pass up a chance to get him in her bed....and in front of her camera. And Vivi’s no fool. But when a career-focused hockey player pursues a free spirit who’s built a fortress of ice around her bruised heart, Justin’s going to have to step up and take his best shot to break through Vivi’s walls...and hope it doesn’t shatter them both.

The D-Man: Redtails Hockey 6The D-Man: Redtails Hockey 6 by Stephanie Julian
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #6, in the Redtails Hockey series. This story can be read as a standalone novel. For read understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Justin is getting ribbed by his friends about watching Vivi when she is near. It is true he is interested. When you are tongue tied, when do you make your move?

Vivi does not usually go out with good guys. Commitment gives her hives. Justin is so different from what she is used to. He treats her like a man should treat a woman.

This was such a great addition to the series. Steamy and sweet, this book just grabbed at my heart strings and I could not put it down. The main characters were very real to me. Their story weaved and fell into place. I really liked this book it was a joy to read.

Shane Masters has it all: a promising career with the Baltimore Banners, a big house, fast cars, financial security, and—up until a month ago—the woman of his dreams. Now he's floundering, with no idea what he did wrong and no idea how to win her back. To make matters worse, her brother—Shane's former best friend—shows up and decides to get involved.

 

Chloe Hunter has never run from a challenge in her life—until the weekend she visits Shane in Baltimore and realizes he isn't exactly the same man she fell in love with all those years ago. He's too accustomed to getting what he wants and Chloe refuses to be just another prize for the taking. That doesn't mean she's giving up, not yet.

 

Shane will stop at nothing to win Chloe back. But when the past suddenly collides with the present, will he fight for a future with her—or will the game end before their chance to be together even starts?

 

 

 

 

Fighting To Score (Baltimore Banners #12)Fighting To Score by Lisa B. Kamps
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #12, in the Baltimore Banners series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For complete understanding of the series, and to avoid spoilers also, I recommend reading this series in order.

Chloe is running scared. She got together over the holidays with the love of her life. Can she trust him not to break her heart, again?

Shane has always been in love with just one woman. He thinks all is well after they reconnect over Christmas. Then she disappears again. Is it possible to fix what you never knew was broken?

These characters were really something. I almost put the book down. There was a lot of angsty pieces. I am so glad I read to the finish line. This couple was so meant to be. I found it to be right on for this series.

About the Author:

 

Lisa B. Kamps is a USA Today Bestselling Author who loves cheering loudly for her favorite hockey team, the Washington Capitals. She came about the fandom honestly as she lives in Maryland with her husband and two sons (who are mostly sorta-kinda out of the house), one very spoiled Border Collie, two cats with major attitude, several head of cattle, and entirely too many chickens to count.

 
While Lisa writes a lot of hockey - one such series, The Baltimore Banners, features "…hard-hitting, heart-melting hockey players…" [USA Today], on and off the ice - she also delves deep *ahem* into the heat with a series of hot and heroic firefighters who put more than their lives on the line in the Firehouse Fourteen series. She's recently introduced a whole new team of hot hockey players who play hard and love even harder in her Banners' spin-off series, The York Bombers. The Chesapeake Blades--a romance series featuring women's hockey--also recently launched with WINNING HARD. Her newest series, Cover Six Security, will launch in early 2019.

Shocking
Now or Never (San Francisco Thunder #4) - Victoria Denault

This is book #4, in the San Francisco Thunder series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Winnie has known Holden most of her life.  He made her feel bad in her youth.  Now he is more of a white knight.  Can she forgive him about the past?

 

Holden is trying to gain the trust of those he has wronged in his youth.  He has grown up and past the angst that plagued him back then.  Now, he is hoping most for the trust of one specific woman.  The one he has always wanted.

 

I really enjoyed reading this story.  I had wondered and waited for this book about Winnie.  It had more of punch than I expected, but it also felt very real.  The feelings were strong, the heat was sizzling, and the couple is just right.  These characters are so fun to read.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
