When I read the blurb and saw "Eileen Francis is a world-class skater with a gold medal to prove it", my first thought was that she was a figure skater, which is one of my favorite winter sports (to watch). The heroine of this story was actually a part of the women's national hockey team.

The beginning did a good job of establishing her character quickly. She was passionate about hockey and teaching, and she had a lot of hopes built on becoming the skating coach for an NHL team. The prestige that would come with that position would bolster her reputation. Her personal life wasn't as rosy. The death of her parents in a car accident, and a very embarrassing and hurtful break up with her hockey-playing boyfriend of a year had left their marks. It was very apparent that she was definitely more comfortable on the ice, in her element, rather than getting into romantic entanglements.

My impression of the hero may have been a little skewered because the majority of his personality description came from the way Ellie interpreted him. On the surface he was pushy, cocky, but also a softie. Perhaps too soft to the point he was a little laughable as a hero. I didn't find anything sexy or alluring about him.

As a couple, I didn't feel the chemistry at all. Ellie was a basket-case of emotions, and she rarely ever knew what she wanted (except as a coach she was really good). From the first moment they met, Ty was excessively obnoxious in trying to get her to go out with him. The story went downhill from there. By 40% I was extremely bored with them. From beginning to end, all they did was argue over how to define what they were or were not doing. The words date and dating appeared for a total of 117 times.

The third person-present pov is really obnoxious and reads as juvenile writing, the dialogue is extremely repeatitive, the heroine (Eileen) was very difficult to like,and the end scene was completely anti-climactic. The storyline was very choppy, and there were portions that were way more verbose than they needed to be while other portions that would have benefited from going into more detail. I couldn't buy into the premise that these two characters were grownup famous elite athletes, especially Elieen, since all their dialogues and interactions just screamed teenage-drama. There was very little character development, and even though Ty was a more likeable character, it was hard to be happy for him that he gets his girl in the end when it's impossible to understand what he even likes, much less loves, about her. Also, the author's attempt to infuse a bit of mystery and intrigue with a subplot of Eileen being threatened falls flat because there is no real resolution to it. I hate giving 1 star ratings, but this book is a trainwreck - the plot in theory has promise and perhaps if it was a novella it could have been salvaged to a minute level of mediocrity (simply getting rid of all the redundancy still doesn't fix bad writing), but as it is it's about 200 pages too long and $3 too expensive. Unless it becomes a free offering, skip this book - and even if it does become a free book, proceed to reading with a great deal of caution.

Title: His Game, Her Rules

Series: The Warriors Book #1

Author: Charlene Groome

Genre: Romance

Blurb: Charlene Groome begins a spirited new series with this riveting introduction to the Warriors, a hockey team whose star player has game both on and off the ice—until their new skating coach changes everything…

Ty Caldwell is one of the Warriors’ most valuable players—and one of Vancouver’s most eligible bachelors. His moves are part of his charm, so he’s surprised by how strongly he’s drawn to the team’s new skating coach—and even more surprised when she cross-checks his advances. But Ty loves a challenge, and the same persistence he flaunts in the rink may help him off the ice…

Eileen Francis is a world-class skater with a gold medal to prove it. But professional hockey is still a man’s world—so when she lands the job as the interim coach for The Warriors, her curves are way bigger news than her turns. To take control of this bunch of alpha males, Eileen is going to have to play cold as ice and twice as hard. But she’ll have to break her own rules to get the team’s MVP to play up to his fullest potential…

Thoughts: This book was not quite what I was expecting. I love sports themed romances, particularly hockey ones, so I was excited to pick this one up. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed though. First off, this is one of those books that gives me that "outside looking in" vibe, where you never really fully connect with the story or the characters or feel emotionally involved with what happens. That is further compounded by the fact that are a few instances in which the book where it switches from third person to first point of view...

I was so excited when I got this book cause hockey is my favorite thing ever and reading about really hot hockey players finding love is probably my second most favorite thing. Unfortunately, this book was such a let down. I really didn't like the writing being in present tense, but I thought maybe I could get over that to enjoy the rest of the book. But then we're introduced to the two main characters...ugh. I just didn't like either one of them. Ty sounded like a teenager and got on my nerves. Eileen had some TSTL moments that grated on me, I mean, you're being threatened and you tell nobody except your girlfriends that tell you to contact the police, but you don't cause you don't want to make waves...over it. This book was just painful to read. Probably won't read anymore by this author, even if it is about hockey players.

Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
