Tricky
Off the Ice (Hat Trick) - Avon Gale

Tristan is a hockey player who knows he cannot play the sport forever.  He makes plans for the future.  Going back to school is the best solution.  Being attracted to his teacher, is just not an option.

 

Sebastian does not want to be attracted to his student.  He needs to stop dreaming and thinking of the one man he cannot have.  But, it seems like it might be mutual....

 

These characters were just such a joy to read.  I am not a fan of the teacher or forbidden trope.  In this story, it just works.  I will not spoil it for you - but I really am looking forward to reading more in this Hat Trick series.  These authors never disappoint.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

About THE BILLIONAIRE'S HOLIDAY ENGAGEMENT:

 

Venture capitalist Cameron Price is a workaholic and great at his job, but his boss is convinced Cam needs a more balanced life. A wife on his arm would prove Cam’s the right man to take over the company. When a gorgeous caterer cooks up the perfect event and catches Cam’s eye, he proposes an innovative arrangement they’ll both benefit from. Lauren Brody knows Cam’s plan is crazy, but pretending to be his fiancée will allow her access to networking at events she’d never get into otherwise. It could be just the break she needs to get her catering business on the map and book the kind of clients she’s always dreamed of cooking for. If she can convince Mr. Buttoned Up Tight to have some unscheduled fun along the way, theirs could be a perfect arrangement.

About HIS CONVENIENT HUSBAND:

 

NFL football player Isaiah Blackwell lost his husband three years ago and is raising their teen son alone. He lives his life as quietly as his job allows, playing ball to support his family but trying not to draw unwanted attention. His quiet life is shaken up when a mutual friend introduces him to Victor, a visiting principal ballet dancer who is everything Isaiah is not. Brash, loud, and gender fluid Victor Aleksandrov has applied for political asylum to avoid returning to Russia, where gay men are targeted and persecuted. He’s been outspoken about gay rights in his home country, and if he doesn’t get asylum, going back to Russia is a death sentence. Their one-night stand turns into a tentative friendship, a relationship they both agree is temporary…until Victor’s denied asylum. Isaiah can’t offer Victor a happily ever after, but he can propose something that’ll keep Victor in the US and safe. . .marriage He just doesn’t expect his new husband to dance away with his heart.

About CATCHING THE PLAYER:

 

Kassidy Thomas decided to stop hiding behind her past, and start living, but she didn’t quite bet on that start including her singing a horrible song in front of the handsomest bachelor in the NFL, Wyatt Hamilton. She also doesn’t think he’d then consequently ask her out on a date, but turns out when you’re actually living life…crazy things happen. He needs to win… Wyatt Hamilton is a player in every sense of the word. Married to the game, he has no interest in relationships, love, or even second nights with the same woman. But from the second the girl-next-door beauty Kassidy knocks on his door to deliver a singing telegram, nothing goes as planned. He can’t stop thinking about her, and keeps showing up on her doorstep for more. That is, until the unthinkable happens… And all bets are off.

His Convenient Husband (Love and Sports, #1)His Convenient Husband by Robin Covington
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Isaiah & Victor have a flash of sexy in their past that may come back to bite them. Isaiah is offering to help Victor stay here in America. To go home for him would be death. Isaiah struggles with this, since he is very attracted to Victor and has a hard time staying hands off.

Victor is starting to have real feelings for Isaiah. He finds the many parts of his personality very attractive and knows he is falling for him. How do you find love when the person you care for has no interest in falling?

This book was really sexy. I loved the interaction with the characters. The pages sizzle with electricity from the main characters chemistry. I love that the backstories of both are varied, diverse, and very real and easy to understand. Really good read.

Aboard the Wishing Star - Debra Parmley,Joshua Macrae,Belo Dia Publishing

Aboard the Wishing Star by Debra Parmley
This book starts out with Kara and Viv and they have landed in Fl on their way to the cruise after the Christmas holiday and hope to have a great New Year celebration.
Kara has lost her luggage and Viv finds others who are going on the cruise as well.
I've never been on a cruise but this is so detailed I feel like I am there.
They meet Nat and his cousin Adam while in the hot tub after the drills on board. We learn a bit about them and also Kara's husband who had passed away.
Kara has dreams of her dead husband and finds it hard to sleep and now she's having arguments with her friend-so much turmoil. Like all the wishes she makes...
Twists and turns as others show up along the journey...
Like romantic/sexual gifts she receives but she thinks they are from Nat but they are not!
Love hearing of all the activities all hours of the day and night on board and so many excursions on shore.
So diversified and so much to learn and no attachments.
Like how he calms her fear of swimming in deep ocean...love the exquisite things they view under the water. Love all the memories she treasures once she's back in snowy, icy Ohio. She's fearful of her boss and things turn very scary.
Love the mystery, action and adventure as I thought this was just a romance novel, what a surprise!
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end along with an author bio.
Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest review.
