Game On (Hometown Players) - Victoria Denault

This book in #6 in the Hometown Players series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this outstanding series in order.

 

Alex is known for being the party boy.  He is tired of the routine, and wanting something more.  He finally meets someone worth waiting for.

 

Brie is not impressed with Alex when she meets him.  He comes across as a dumb jock.  When they meet again, she is shocked he has found her and wonders how and why?

 

This was a fast paced whirl of feelings.  I love the banter between these characters.  The cameos made by earlier beloved characters made it all the more fun.  This series is always a go to read and worth every turn of the page!!  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Game On (Hometown Players #6) by Victoria Denault
Game On (Hometown Players) - Victoria Denault

Victoria Denault is on a winning streak with book six of the Hometown Players series, GAME ON.  Hockey star for the Brooklyn Barons, Alex Larue, doesn’t want anyone to know about his past. He decides to volunteer at a charity dedicated to a cause important to him that is run by Brie Bennett.  The two bump heads and immediately judge each other, not realizing everything they have in common.  This contemporary sports romance is suitable for new adult and adult audiences.

 

I loved this story.  My heart broke for Alex and everything he went through.  I love that he makes so much of an effort to help those who were in similar situations he was, especially Mackenzie.  I also appreciated that Brie knew what her life could have been like and dedicated her life to helping others that were not as fortunate as her.  I thought it was clever how their lives intertwined.  GAME ON is an excellent example of why you shouldn’t judge people that you don’t really know.

 

Once again, Victoria Denault does a phenomenal job with both her character development and plot.  GAME ON is skillfully written and impossible to put down.  I love the trades that happened in this series.  I enjoyed that the characters from the previous books had pivotal roles in this story.  The ending was perfect and felt well resolved.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

The shallowest of ponds hide the deepest of emotions.  Alex is brash, sexy and the life of the party.  A puzzle with jerk tendencies is my description for him. What lies beneath the ladies man skills is the broken heart of a child.  A man afraid to expose his darkest secrets and his deepest moments.  Brie is a woman with a short fuse and a big heart.  She has no trouble speaking her mind, but will not risk giving anyone her heart. Game On is a mass of contradictions.  The emotions are chaotic, the attraction is electric and the drama is magnetic.

Burn
The Hometown Hoax - Heather Thurmeier

This is book #3, in The Hoax Series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading in order.

 

Logan met Tessa when he gave her a ride into town after an accident.  Later, they find out there is a familial connection.  He is friends with her brother.  What he does not understand, is how he is so attracted to her even after she has rejected him repeatedly.

 

Tessa is not wanting to move home.  She does not want anything to stop her from meeting her goals.  Her family is relentless.  Logan makes her feel things she has not felt for a while.  Is it worth taking this chance?

 

This was a bit of a slow burn.  It starts off with a bang, but kind of mellows out, and gets running again.  The characters are both strong, but their chemistry burns high.  I was kind of waiting for a burn out.  Luckily for me, this is an author who never disappoints.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Didn't Like The Characters
Hometown Cowboy - Sara Richardson

Jessa Mae Love is a small-town vet who is unlucky in love. She starts right off by being dumped via text, which also makes her lose her number one donor. Lance Cortez has been busy training for his next rodeo. However, when his dad’s heath takes a turn for the worst, he feels he has no choice but to find a way to help him. His best solution is to talk his dad’s friend Jessa to move in with them.

This sounded like a cute and quick read. However, I really just didn’t like Jessa very well. I also didn’t care for Lance. Unfortunately because of that I just couldn’t get into this book.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book
