When the two meet the attraction is powerful you can feel it coming off the pages but Nikolai is trying to stay away from Meryl not wanting to jeopardize his career but Meryl will have none of that.
Trying to keep her father from ruining not only her life but Nikolai's career can standing up to him bring them the HEA that they both truly are seeking?
If you love Sports and Romance this is a series you will not want to miss and there is a lot more to come when it comes to this tea
Which is a shame because the first in this series was actually pretty decent.
I enjoy my sports romances and really liked this novella. There was a lot going on in a short period of time, which can be expected from a novella, and this romance had more of a new adult feel to it, but it certainly got my attention and has me looking forward to more stories in this series.
I really liked Nik. He was everything that you would want to see in an up and coming athlete, someone who you know will be a great role model for kids and treat his sport with the respect it deserves. Meryl wasn’t my favorite female character, but she did grow on me as the book progressed. For a girl who has grown up with money and privilege, as the book progresses you get to see another side of her that, for me, helped redeem her from her initial somewhat bratty, spoiled, “I get everything I want” impression that she made early in story.
Watching the relationship between Nik and Meryl develop was sweet at times and you could feel the attraction between the two. Things do move rather quickly between the two, and having to deal with the “players are off limits” policy that Meryl’s father has dictated had them trying to keep their budding relationship quiet. When things come to a head let’s just say I was pleasantly surprised with how Nik handled things.
As I said, I did enjoy this read but, for me, I had a bit of disconnect from the main characters, which I think was caused by their ages. The story itself was well written and the characters were well developed, so I’m pretty sure this was just a “me” issue – I liked the other characters and am looking forward to reading more about the San Antonio Generals.
I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
When a line is drawn for you, do you stay on your side or do you cross that line and worry about the consequences later. Meryl has crossed that line once before and it cost her everything. Will she cross it again? Her father is the owner of the new San Antonio Generals NHL team. He has made it clear to his 20 year old daughter that she is not to fraternize with the players. She has her eye on 19 year old Russian transplant Nilokav Barstov. This is his first season in the NHL and he is striving to play to the best of his ability.
Meryl proposed to Nik, that he help her with a program to start youth hockey camps and other activities. The goal is to help grow the franchise of the Generals as well as giving kids an outlet. He agrees to work with her on a strictly professional level. Nik has only been in the US for about 6 months and is still struggling with the language and way of life. Meryl told Nik her father doesn't want her fraternizing with players, but he is getting mixed signals.
Will Nik decide to throw caution to the wind and pursue a relationship with his boss's daughter? Will Meryl dare to defy her father, again, to be with Nik. She knows what her father did the first time she crossed the line, but Nik does not know what lengths her father will go through to ensure his daughter follow his rule.
I recommend this book to those who like romance, and more specifically sports romance. 4 stars
Review for Mommy's Naughty Playground
Meryl, using a promotion project with the team, conspires the opportunity to spend more time with Nikolai. To her surprise, Nikolai is a kind, sweet, and smart young man. Meryl isn’t the spoiled brat Nikolai thought she was. She does a lot of charity work for the community, and uses her family’s notoriety to help those who need help. Nikolai respects that about her, and will do whatever he can to make sure her project is a success.
Due to her father’s rule about dating players on his team, Nikolai and Meryl find themselves sneaking around. They’re having fun spending time with one another, but it slowly grows into something more. This was a sweet love story.
I found myself getting seriously homesick and enjoying fond memories of growing up in San Antonio. Most Saturdays until I was 11, you could find me on the observation deck of the Tower of the Americas, then at the Institute of Texan Cultures. Michele is such a vivid writer, I could see all the San Antonio sights she wrote about.
Crossing the Line is the second book in the Men of the Ice series.
I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 4 stars.
