In the meantime, let me gush over this book some. Things I loved about Power Play:1. It is about hockey. 2. It showed the importance of reading to kids. 3. This book focused on kids from bad homes, regardless of socio-economic level/ethnicity, and the importance of foster care, or another significant adult/family, making a difference in those kids' lives, regardless of socio-economic level/ethnicity/etc. (Both kids and fostering are near and dear to my heart.) 4. It told about animals, big or small, can be vicious or loving, largely due to how they are treated and trained. 5. It had such character development of the heroine, that as I watched her blossom and become more confident, I wanted to cheer. 6. The hilarious and brave antics of the animals in this story had me laughing, shouting and sharing each event with my husband whether he wanted to hear it or not. 7. I loved that the hero wasn't the easiest to love in other books but her sure turned into a loveable teddy bear in this one. 8. Ah, heck, I just loved the entire book but I'm going to stop here. (Otherwise, this review will be 112 pages long.)
Very hard to believe that after all that was hinted Mackenzie had gone through in her life, she would do something so incredibly naïve and dangerously stupid as running off to Mexico to marry a man she had never met in person, with no back-up or any means to return to the US. And after she realises what she almost got herself into, she jumps right into the next mess, marrying a man she hasn't even known for an hour.
For such a dramatic starting point the whole further development ran much too smoothly - it would have needed much more conflict than disagreeing on how to load a dishwasher to keep me interested. It also kept hinting at her foster childhood but never went into detail. I would have liked to know more about what made her tick. Her constant repetition of how everything gets ripped away from her the moment she starts feeling a little bit happy was tiring.
All in all despite the authors style which keeps me reading, I felt a little let down by this one.
I read it all in one day. It was that interesting. The first chapter really drew me in when Riley caught his fiancée cheating. Then comes Mackenzie's first chapter. I'll admit. I wasn't sure about her when I read that one. And the choice to get married instead of him just offering to let her stay at his place and fly back to the states with him was a little strange (but he was drunk so....).
I loved watching them fall for each other though. I also loved how Riley mentioned he wasn't a huge fan of Dani Williams (because I think that was a fairly common feeling from Gayle's readers after the reviews for her book).
Only complaint? The ending was a little strange. I don't want to give away any spoilers but it seemed kind of rushed although I liked the premise I would've liked to have known the why.
