Blocked - Seanan McGuire

Blocked introduces the youngest of the Price siblings, Antimony. She's not yet had her own book, which made it somewhat more difficult to relate to her in such a short story.

She was mostly a teenager and the cryptids didn't feel like the most important part of the story. I am curious to see how her story develops though.

Blocked is the story of Brit. She is an amazing goalie who just got the chance of a lifetime... To play in the NHL for the San Francisco Gold. She has busted her ass her entire career to have a chance to play with the big boys. And well they are hockey players, so they are all big. :) (get your mind out of the gutter!) When management tries to force Brit and her hunky captain Stefan together for a publicity stunt things get a little complicated. Even more so when she actually starts to have actual feelings for him... Can she keep her walls up, and make management happy? Or will her efforts be blocked? 

 

It’s no secret that I am no stranger to the romance genre. And to be quite honest, it’s a little hit or miss as a whole. That is the great thing about Elise Faber... It’s a hole in one every time! Okay, I know that was not a hockey euphemism, but I never claimed to be good at sports, so... :)

 

This book was such a fun read! I read it in one night. I kept thinking to myself, “OK just one more chapter.” Then something would happen and I would tell myself that I couldn’t stop there! But I loved it! Blocked is such a great piece of writing that you cannot tear yourself away. There is a little something for everyone: joy, sadness, despair, hope, trials, good ole’ ass whoopin’ needed moments, screaming at the book moments, and my personal favorite... Not realizing that you are smiling while reading moments. You have to admire the way Elise Faber can break your heart, and make you laugh in the same sentence. 

I have been a fan of Elise’s since Sara sent me Phoenix Rising. After starting that series, I knew that I was hooked and would read anything Elise would dangle in front of me. And to this day, I have NEVER been disappointed. 

 

        Faber’s writing not only makes you feel like the characters are going to be joining you for Thanksgiving, but she also makes you genuinely feel for them... Whatever their plight may be. Her writing will make you want to strap on skates and take the ice with the team. Which I can tell you is not always a good idea in real life, and may or may not end up with a heating pad and some ibuprofen. :)

 All in all, I give book a 5 out of 5! 

 

Elise Faber has the story telling prowess of Scheherazade, and I cannot wait to see what tale she spins next. 

 

Happy Reading!

Just Puck It!
Blocked - Elise Faber

A wonderful story with a strong female who becomes a goalie in the major hockey league.  She is strong in her game skills and strong in developing her relationship with a HOT captain of the team.

The character development keeps the story interesting and makes you want to turn the page to know what is next.

Just Puck It! (whatever you are doing) and read this book!!! You will not be disappointed.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review

 

A strong female and an alpha male struggle with obstacles life throws at them. They grow stronger in not only their personal lives but their professional.

 

Brit Plantain is the first woman to play with a professional NHL team. The recent scandal has management forcing Brit into secret deal

 

Stefan Barie is the captain of the Gold hockey team. The game and his mom are his sole priority.

 

His attraction to Brit is not what he planned but the more time he spends around her the more he likes her.

 

After an emergency has Stefan traveling home Brit runs to his side.

 

No longer wanting to be a part of management's secret contract Brit calls it off but things go sideways when the truth is revealed.

 

With all things coming out into the open Brit and Stefan work to heal what was broken.
