If you followed this group of authors previous baseball series, The Belltown Six Pack, and enjoyed them, you're gonna love this next series about Hockey. No worries if you didn't read any of the previous series' books, you'll be fine diving into this series.
Clint McCarthy and Bree Stone each have a brother who is a member of The Belltown Six Pack. They're considered a "six pack sib." They completely understand what it's like to have a very famous brother and being a part of that group of friends. (It's pretty awesome!) Imagine Clint's surprise when he shows up with a group of his friends from his new hockey team and runs into none other than Bree Stone! They haven't seen each other in years and hit it off pretty quickly.
This book was a lot of fun and Rebecca Connolly knows how to write some sweet and sassy (and clean) romance. There were plenty of sparks and great emotions between Clint and Bree. I loved both of their personalities. These two will grab a hold of your heart and funny bone and have you laughing and swooning while reading this book.
And aside from the humor and sweet romance, there's a great feel good story too. Clint reconnects with his coaches and some good friends from his beginning days of learning hockey at Northbrook Hockey. And those friends he played with at Northbrook and their reconnecting is leading into this new series. Each of those players will have their own book. And I for one can't wait to read them, especially one in particular who has a little girl. I'm really hoping his story is up next...or soonish. Can't wait! If you're a hockey fan, this is a fun series you'll hopefully enjoy! When I was a teenager my dad would take me to professional hockey games. They were so much fun (and very, very loud)! I even went on a couple dates to the games. The author captured the feeling and intensity of the games very well in her writing. I was having flashback memories of those games and it had me missing them. Time to go to a hockey game!!! Too bad I live far away from any teams, professional or not.
I received a copy from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own.
This story proves it is possible to write a heart-stoppingly sweet romance in any time period. This felt real. The entire story felt real, actually. Which, again, took me a bit by surprise. After all, it is focused on pro players, whose lives often get portrayed as "plussed": real, plus a bit more. Not here. There weren't any huge conflicts, crushing blows, etc. -- just real people moving through real lives, encountering real problems, and falling into real love. It was bliss. I really enjoyed getting to know Clint & Bree, and look forward to becoming better acquainted with the rest of the guys from Northbrook in future books. In fact, I am probably going to back-peddle and check out the Belltown Six Pack series as well, which is nothing short of a miracle. Sports, y'know?
Blush factor: non-existent. Language: very mild, infrequent swearing. Violence: nada, unless you count on-ice player exchanges that come with the hockey territory.
What it comes down to is this: Are you a sports fan who loves a good, clean romance? Don't think twice: buy, and read! Oh, what? You are a not-a-sports-fan who loves a good, clean romance? Don't think twice: buy and read! There is something in this story for everyone, and you will come away smiling.
