What happens when you are traded to the one team that hates you most? Find out how Leo overcomes the back lash and win the girl
Although I'm not expert on hockey, I know that it's a contact sport. As in other contact sports, there are legal plays and plays that are not. Even though Leo injured an apposing team's captain, Dylan Fraser, in a legal play situation, the injury was serious enough to sideline Dylan for 3 weeks or more. Leo feels badly about what happened and is surprised when he gets a call from his GM saying he's been traded to Dylan's team, the Bedlams.
Kelsey is Dylan's sister and also works for the Buffalo Bedlams in player services and as part of the fan outreach program. Part of her job is welcoming new players and helping them get settled in their new surroundings. It is with more than a little reluctance that she must face Leo and welcome him to the team.
I thoroughly enjoyed Kelsey's character. She's devoted to her family but also understands that as part of her job in media relations, she needs to portray all of the players in the best light. This is made more difficult with Leo since he's the one who seriously injured her brother who is also the team's captain. But she's honest in telling Leo "on a personal level, I can't look at you and not think that you're the guy who gave him (Dylan) a concussion...But on a professional level, I have no problem with you." She's warning him right away that she will be professionally fair but privately, he's got a lot of work to do!
Leo is also an enjoyable character. He feels remorse for hurting Dylan as badly as he had and doesn't expect to be warmly welcomed by his new team nor Dylan's family. Leo has brothers of his own and has even been in a similar situation with his brother being injured. He is also disliked by the fans who boo him when he enters the rink so it's an uphill battle on all fronts for him.
The pace of their story is wonderful. All of the events unfold with a very natural flow. The supporting characters also add dimension and interest to the story, too.
Even if you are not a huge hockey fan, you will enjoy this love story!
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book, however, this is my honest opinion.
Kelsey is Dylan’s sister and she must put her animosity aside towards their newest player as she must make the arrangements to make his transition easier as part of her job in player services.
His new teammates are far from welcoming and all he wants to do is fulfill the final year of his contract and resign somewhere else in the summer. Once Dylan recovers and returns to the team he smooths the ways for his newest teammate and he and Kelsey become close and he will do anything to protect her even if it is from himself.
I loved both these characters as Kelsey is loyal and will do anything for those she loves and Leo is not a vicious player but one hit has changed the course of his life and how they are both very close to their families. The combination of drama, angst, romance and humor make this an enjoyable read. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
Told from dual perspective, Leo and Kelsey have a clear attraction from the moment their paths cross, despite the difficult circumstances of Leo having been playing for an opposing team when he injured Kelsey’s brother before being traded to their team. However, Leo is far from being a stereotypical sports player and as his relationship with the likeable Kelsey grows both of these strong characters are forced to face issues and feelings that neither one was necessarily looking for.
For those following the series, we get to catch up with some familiar faces but it can also be read as a standalone.
If you are looking for a short but complete sports romance with a touch of off-limits, definitely give this book a read! I enjoyed it.
