Alexandre "Simba" Simard was the captain of the new expansion team, The Dragons. He was gorgeous and an incredibly skilled first line forward.
Josephine "Jo" Gievens was a rookie fire fighter. She was tall and beautiful and wanted to prove her value in everything she attempted.
The two met when Simba reacted instinctively at an accident and pulled a man and his young daughter safely out of a car. Jo was the first responder that assisted Simba. The storyline developed a little awkwardly at first but then focused on the budding friendship between the two.
I liked the beginning of the book. It had me from the start with the technical talk of the Hockey team talking through their issues and losses. It set the stage well as a back story and added depth and dimension to the plot. Additionally, Scott included another suspenseful backstory around Jo's job; which provided even greater depth and dimension to the storyline.
In the first part of the book I was on the fence about Simba and Jo. Simba seemed awkward. It didn't seem to fit his personality. However, once he and Jo actually started dating, his confident alpha came out, and I really liked him. By the end, I was totally in love with him and with them as a couple.
All in all, it was a fairly fast read, totally enjoyable and wonderfully entertaining. As a bonus, Scott set the stage well with teasers for Gooly's story next, The Legacy.
I read a lot and I've come to realize that a good romance writer can usually write good books no matter what the sex of the main characters and this is certainly true of RJ Scott. I don't think I've read a book by her that I haven't enjoyed. Yes, I've like some more than others, but overall I haven't read any that were less than 4 stars for me.
After I agreed to read and review The Heart I realized that I hadn't read book one in the series, The Code, so I started with that. (Note – each book stands alone, you won't feel lost if you start with The Heart.) Let me just say that The Code grabbed me in right from the very first paragraph and I couldn't put it down. The story trope is "falling in love with my best friend's little sister" and it was freaking fantastic.
Now for The Heart… The Code was so good that I was almost afraid to read The Heart. I just didn't see how RJ could write another story as powerful as the The Code. I should know by now to trust her writing; The Heart was every bit as good but the story line was dramatically different.
I won't rehash the blurb shown above – it's a good one. After first meeting under extraordinary circumstances Jo and Alex (aka Simba) meet again and agree to see each other. Jo isn't looking for a relationship so things move at a slow but steady pace. The sexual chemistry and tension between them is HOT!
Alex is a man that any woman would be lucky to have in her corner. He's strong, handsome and cares about his teammates – wanting to always do the right thing for everyone. Jo is driven to make a success of her career as a firefighter in spite of people who don't think it's appropriate for a woman.
This story had lots of heat (pun intended) as Alex and Jo's attraction for one another grows and someone keeps blowing up stuff. The mystery/suspense kept me guessing until all was revealed. I am very much looking forward to stories for other members of the Ice Dragons hockey team.
P.S. I should probably mention that I know next to nothing about hockey. The Code and The Heart both contain a fair amount of "jargon" that I didn't totally understand but that didn't in any way diminish my enjoyment of the books. If you are a hockey fan you should enjoy them at least as much as I did and if you aren't I think you will still like them very much.
