In this second installment of the Gold Hockey series, we learn that Sara Jetty, former Olympic figure skater is his back story. They’ve let 10 years pass with no contact due to horribly unfortunate circumstances in both of their lives. As they re-enter each other’s lives, getting together as a couple happens pretty quickly. At first this was confusing because, well, they let 10 years go with no contact at all!!! As more and more of their story is revealed it makes sense and makes you root for them.
Elise Faber does a great job of writing the story to keep you reading because this is not a book where you can guess what happened in their past, or the drama that will come. You HAVE to keep reading to get it. She draws you in to both characters and makes you want to protect them. She has you rooting for them all the way. After all who doesn’t appreciate a reformed bad boy who is a true romantic at heart, or a true underdog who is so defeated it's hard to bring them back out of hiding?
Can’t wait to see who’s story comes next… Will it be Blane – who has been in love with Brit most of his life and is still coming to terms with her love for Stefan. Who will help him get over her….?
Mike has known Sara Jetty since they were teenagers, but it's been ten years since they've had any contact. Now that their paths have crossed once again, Mike can't ignore the fact that he feels just as strongly for her now as he did back then. But a lot has happened in both Mike and Sara's lives over the past ten years. Things that are better left in the past. But with Mike being in the spotlight with the Gold, their pasts won't stay hidden once they start dating - especially with Sara Jetty being, well, Sara Jetty.
Despite the obstacles, Mike and Sara's relationship progresses. The two have chemistry - both in and out of the bedroom. I loved the way they interacted, their verbal sparing - such a fun dynamic to their relationship. I enjoyed Brit and Stefan's roles as not only Mike's teammates, but also as relationship mentors (whether solicited or not). Monique and Mira were a delightful addition to the story and I loved how they embraced Sara immediately as one of their own. And I would be remiss if I failed to mention Pascal and Mitch - those two are simply awesome.
Backhand is an intense, hold-onto-your-seat romance. Even when Mike tries to "take it slow," there's really nothing slow about this story or their relationship. It's sweet and spicy with some sauciness thrown in for good measure - and perhaps a little suspense as well ;)
FYI ~ open door intimacy, language
While I personally would prefer less language & less detail in the intimate scenes, all content is appropriate for the story - intimate scenes are plot driven and language isn't used in excess (they're hockey players, right?)
