    Sarina Bowen’s Bombshells ARC Review

    Thank you to Sarina Bowen, Jenn Gaffney and the team for the advance reader copy of Bombshells, the ninth story in the Brooklyn Bruisers series. A hockey player and playboy who swears off women before an upcoming season, yeah right haha! Such a classic hockey romance trope from one of the queens of hockey romance. I have yet to read one where the female love interest is a hockey player too, so I am pumped for this story. Check out the Goodreads synopsis… “The women’s league is in the house! And Brooklyn will never be the same again for Anton Bayer and the team… This is my last chance to ditch my playboy…

    L.A. Witt’s Aftermath ARC Review

    Thank you to L.A. Witt, Sarina Bowen, Jenn Gaffney, and the rest of the team at the World of True North for the advance reader copy of Aftermath, the fifth story in the Vino & Veritas series. This has been one of my favourite instalments in the Vino & Veritas series. Brent and Jon’s story is a lot more emotional, painful, and broken. It is not an easy path for these two but it is a read well worth it. Check out the Goodreads synopsis… “Brent Weyland was the life of the party until an injury ended his hockey career. Now he’s retreated alone to a lakefront house, trying to make sense of…

    Eden Finley’s Headstrong ARC Review

    Thank you to Eden Finley, Sarina Bowen and the team at the World of True North for the advance reader copy of Headstrong, the third standalone in the Vino & Veritas series. Finally a little dose of hockey romance to the Vino & Veritas series and it’s in an installment that has a straight man questioning his sexuality. Check out the Goodreads synopsis… A straight guy gives gay hookup tips to a virgin. What could go wrong? When I first met Whit, I couldn’t get away from him fast enough. He’s a hockey player, and I hate everything to do with the sport that once broke my heart. But I can’t help feeling…

    Helena Hunting’s A Secret for a Secret ARC Review

    Thank you to Helena and the teams at Montlake, NetGalley, and SocialButterflyPR for the advance reader copy of A Secret for a Secret, the third standalone in the All In series. Helena Hunting is the queen of hockey romance! So I was over the moon to see her write this hockey romance trope, the relationship blocked by team dynamics as the female love interest is someone’s daughter. In A Secret for a Secret’s case, Queenie is the general manager’s daughter, but that does not stop a beautiful relationship that blooms between her and the team’s goalie, Ryan Kingston. Check out the Goodreads synopsis… “From New York Times bestselling author Helena…

    Elle Kennedy’s The Risk ARC Review

    I want to thank Elle Kennedy and her team at Nina Bocci PR for providing me with an advance reader copy of The Risk, the second book in the Briar U Series. I was astounded to be accepted for this review, as I have been a huge fan Elle Kennedy’s for years. I first read her most famous book, The Deal back in 2016. The Deal established Elle Kennedy as a go-to author for the Hockey Romance trope. I am also biased in my love for her, because she is a fellow Canadian, and I love supporting Canadian authors. Here is the Goodreads synopsis: “Everyone says I’m a bad girl. They’re only partly right—I…

    Are You New to NA… These Are the Hockey Romance Novels You Must Read (and Mini Assignment #4)

    I am going to come out and say it, I love reading hockey romance.   First of all, you need to understand that I am not a fan of hockey, not of sports in general. Why then do I enjoy the trope?! Hockey Romance is the best way to convey a story on the premise that the guy has a reputation and the girl judges him for it. But as they fall in love as she realizes that he is more than just the rumours, that she never really understood who he truly was at the beginning of the story. This premise is such a beautiful way to read about…
