Then Whitney meets Hannah, and the burden of living a lie becomes too heavy to bear. Interspersed with Whitney's inner conflicts are her battles on the ice. She made me wonder if Victor Kalinski is her cousin. (Read Point Shot). I love the sports aspect of this book, and most of Ms. Locey's novels. She's accurate and creates excitement, as if I was watching the game, ringside.
Then there is her writing, which is fantastic. Her descriptions are spot on, putting me right at the scene, but never too much. I don't have to wade through paragraphs of extraneous words. I h scoredave read other others in this series and can hardly wait for the next one to come out. Another goal scored on this book which steps out of the box to bring a very human story to light. Bravo!
Also, I want to say you don't have to be a big hockey or sports fan to enjoy the story either. It is a great romance and focuses around that.
Whitney has been hiding her sexuality from her teammates. She has even gone as far as trying to come off as a player and acting as she had slept with lots of the hockey players. She finally gave that up and began hanging in the background pushing people away. Except for Stephanie and Helen.
She meets a cute college student that couldn't be more her opposite, and they bond quickly, but Hannah is not in the closet and refuses to be a dirty little secret, so will Whitney stay in the closet or will love win? I will let you read and find out.
I love V. L. Locey's way with characters and every book she writes surprises me and makes me deliriously happy. I love the opposites attract theme of the story and the LGTBQ story line. I also like how the comradery fits in with her teammates as well. V>L. Has a way to mix her characters, a great storyline, and hockey to tell a great story and come across with a powerful life lesson as well.
My only issue was I wish the story was just a little longer. I felt like it came to a sudden end, though it was a good ending I would have liked to seen more. I cannot wait for the next venom book to see who is next on the love roster.
If you like hockey, F/F stories, opposites attract, coming out, and a steamy romance this is for you.
The story follows Whitney, a hockey player, who is hiding her sexuality from everyone! She is terrified of the repercussions, certain she will be ostracized and her life will be ruined. She meets Hannah and is absolutely drawn to her. She finds the courage to announce her sexuality to her team and awaits the fury.... You'll have to read the book to find out how this goes down.
I was left feeling that I should know more of the characters in the story. There were so many names and obvious back stories that I felt I should maybe know. Then I realised that this is book #5 in a series and the penny dropped so I do recommend to read the other books before starting this one.
A Book Lovers Emporium.
Two things about V.L. Locey, if you've followed her on social media is you know she loves hockey and writing. Playmaker is an F/F hockey novella. It's a short read which I favor in times when I want to read some amazing and fast. There's a grittiness only a hockey story can give, but there's heart and sweetness as well.
The two MC's in this book are Hannah and Whitney. Whitney is an in the closet hockey player. Fear pretty much has kept her there. Fear is a powerful thing that controls a lot of us. Until she meets Hannah. Because of her, she is given the strength and courage to open that door and tell the world.
V.L Locey's writing is amazing, she grasps the emotion very well in this book. How the characters felt was never in question. I would have loved more background but when writing a novella you accept there is some "need for more" somewhere.
This is a lovely read with a lot to enjoy.
