I loved a lot of things about these novellas, but the main thing I loved was how well the author really makes you feel like you are right there with the heroine, as these are all written from the heroine's perspective. The heroines are all smart, strong women who I related to and connected with. These are women I would be friends with.
These are all hockey books. Hockey is a part of them all. However, the author integrates it seamlessly into the stories and explains what needs to be explained in a very clear way without detracting from the experience. You absolutely do not have to like or understand hockey to enjoy these novellas, however you may find yourself watching a game or two after you read them.
All these novellas end in a happily for now, not a happily ever after. However, this just makes you want to read the upcoming stories in the series to see what happens with these characters and see who gets their next happily for now.
Simply put, these novellas are great, but they do leave you anxiously awaiting the next books. They are short stories and can easily be read at one sitting, but beware, it is not easy to stop after just reading one novella at a time. You may find yourself reading them all at one sitting, like I have done several times. So get some snacks and a drink and sit down and enjoy these great warm ups to the full length books.
These three short stories give some history to how Sera and Kat get to where they are but also introduce us to some of the other members of the Gulls team.
Blood on the Rocks isn't much of a romance but the details shared in the story were necessary to truly understanding who Sera is and plants the seed for her potential relationship with Brandon.
Grace on the Rocks is the story of Emma, a college senior who is a dancer, and Kyle, one of the players for the Gulls. Emma is an amazing character: she says what she means and she doesn't play games. I seriously loved her so much!!
Charm on the Rocks is the story of Madison, one of the Gulls Girls, and Alec, one of the players. There is clause in their contracts stating there's to be no fraternization between them but the pull is just too strong.
I read these three novellas in a couple hours. These prequels made me feel more connected to the other characters in this series and now I'm even more excited for Sera's book!!
We knew he had been murdered in the first book of the series but this tells what happened and how things came about. You can see the attraction between Seraphina and Brendon Thorpe starting as well, even though we have not gotten their story yet (I cant wait for them)
the second book is about Kyle Underwood and Emma Winsor, Emma goes to all the hockey games with her dad and has since she was little but she is not really into the game, that is until she meets Kyle at the Beach Charity event, Now she cannot take her eyes off of him, I really liked how strong she was emotionally after what she had dealt with in her life, and Kyle oh he is such a surprise!
The third story is about Madison Montgomery and Alex Schumacher This was great, again I had read about them in the first book of this series but to read how they came together and their chemistry was wonderful, You think different about Alex after reading this. LOVED this boxset and HIGHLY recommend you read it!
The biggest criticism I have of A Slapshot Prequel Boxset was the editing, or lack thereof, distracts and pulls the reader out of the story repeatedly, to the point of annoyance. There are so many spelling errors, typos, and repetitive wording that it pulls the reader out of the story repeatedly. The stories were interesting enough to keep me reading, but the errors were bothersome and annoying at times.
The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that info here. The author managed to describe the main characters and the setting well. While these stories revolve around hockey, specifically the Seagulls, most of the storyline takes place off the ice. The storylines are average but overall, it was a good read.
I enjoyed these stories and I'm looking forward to reading more from this author including more books about the Seagulls hockey team.
