Goaltending: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey (Game On in Seattle #8) by Jami Davenport
Goaltending: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey - Jami Davenport

Goalie, Martin "Brick" Bricker’s playboy social life comes to a halt when his five-year-old daughter, that he didn’t know he had, is left at his doorstep.  He hires nanny, Amelia Stacey, to help take care of her.  He puts the moves on Amelia, but she’s blocking all his shots.  This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adults.

 

At first, I wasn’t crazy about Brick.  I liked him more as the story progressed.  I appreciated that he realized when he was being a jerk.  Deep down, he is a good guy who guards his heart.  I like Amelia.  She is hardworking and great with kids.  I felt bad about the things she went through.  They are both broken and help each other become whole.  Macy is a cute kid.  My heart went out to her and all her loss.  I like how her relationship evolved with Amelia and her dad.

 

I enjoyed the plot.  It was believable and heartfelt.  There were interesting twists.  The characters grew and overcame pertinent obstacles.  There were many humorous scenes.  One of my favorites was when Brick’s teammate, Rush, was babysitting Macy.  I enjoyed the ending; it felt well resolved.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Goaltending: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey
Goaltending: Seattle Sockeyes Hockey - Jami Davenport The ultimate playboy is about to meet his match. With a nickname like Brick, Martin Bricker is not father material. His life is one endless party that consists of a revolving door of women, late night parties and all day binges. That is until his huge ego and no morals lifestyle is interrupted by a nightmare he never saw coming. FATHERHOOD! To a precocious, adorable little girl that comes with tons of baggage. What's a guy to do when his world is caving in around him? Grow up, man up and hire an expert.

Enter temporary nanny, Amelia Stacey. A woman with secrets of her own. She has a lot of love to give and no one to share it with. Clueless father and his newly acquired spitfire of a daughter, could be the cure for that. Stories where grown men are brought to their knees by a child that they never knew they wanted and turns out can't live without are my Kryptonite. That inner quality of innocence and vulnerability is more prevalent. Adding a child changes the dynamic of a love story. Gives it a depth that is at times lacking in romance. Ms. Davenport understood that.

POINT SHOT TRILOGY by V. L. Locey
Point Shot Trilogy Box Set - V. L. Locey
  I loved this trilogy. I was glad I did not have to wait for all the books to be finished before I read it. Victor is a world-class jerk (I'd use something stronger but I'm trying to keep it clean.) He has no filter. Dan is liked by everyone. Eventually he takes the edge off Victor but, like Victor, I wonder what Dan sees in him. Victor does soften up some as Dan's influence settles over him. I like how their personalities come through the story. As Victor begins to open his heart he softens.

I liked the story. It has to be read in order as each new book picks up where the previous one ended. The sex is hot and plentiful but there is more than sex in the series. A good hard look is given to puck bunnies and the affect they can have on players' lives. Jealousy rears it's head in the last two books as Dan has to deal with it in regards to Victor and a puck bunny. Victor has to look as his childhood, his recent past that caused him to be sent down to the minors, and where he is headed in the future. I liked that the team gave Victor a chance to straighten himself out.

I liked how the team came together. I especially like Mario McGarrity and his kilt. He is the sidekick that is needed at times when the main characters are emotionally overloaded. I plan on getting more of this teams' books.

SIMMERING ICE by Veronica Forand and Susan Scott Shelley
Simmering Ice - Veronica Forand,Susan Scott Shelley
  Annie is a physical therapist who meets Alec when he visits the hospital for the children. She looks a little like his late wife. She makes poor choices when it comes to men and he is not looking for a commitment. But they keep seeing each other and her mother keeps undermining her confidence until it comes to a head between them. They have to decide what is best for them.

I liked these characters. Annie needs to learn to communicate and tell Alec what she is thinking instead of making assumptions based on what her mother says. I like Alec's teammates. They are regular Cupids.

I plan on reading the other stories in this series.

UNTIL YOU by Melody Heck Gatto
Until You: Prequel to the Renegades Seri... Until You: Prequel to the Renegades Series - Melody Heck Gatto
  Introduces the Pittsburgh Renegades series a little. Surfer Sam plays hockey in California. He meets Trina at the beach in Delaware. Turns out that Trina sings the National Anthem in Winnipeg and her brother plays hockey in Pittsburgh. Trina has many problems that she is dealing with.

I liked that Trina came to trust Sam. I also liked that Sam earned her trust. They were a good couple who learned that communication could deal with whatever was given to them. There is not much hockey but there is some hot sex.

I look forward to reading the full series since my appetite for the Renegades has been whetted.
