I like sports romance because you get to know the members of the team, one as a primary character and the others as secondary characters, and with each book in the series we get to know one of the other team members and the ones we know become secondary characters.
We met Harlow and Keaton in the first book in the series when she was Meadow's editor and Keaton was a young obnoxious hockey player hitting on anything that moved, or so we thought. Turns out in addition to playing hockey he has also been writing a book and going to school for his masters but nobody knows it. Harlow becomes his editor and their relationship evolves from there.
I hope in the rest of the series the author does a better job of getting the book edited.
Harlow and Keaton have a fun and sexy relationship. Neither is afraid of sex. However, when it comes to committing to a longtime relationship, both are a bit reluctant. Then, of course, some climactic action occurs that causes Keaton to pull away. Unfortunately Harlow is the type of character to hold a grudge and doesn't forgive easily.
Harlow and Keaton start off in a professional relationship. However, there's a playful banter between the two from the start as they each develop nicknames for each other. I don't always like when characters use nicknames for each other. But every now and then I will find a couple who I feel it works for and this was one of those couples.
Through the climactic action I mentioned above, Keaton is forced to resolve some other stress in his life. I'm trying not to be too revealing to avoid spoilers. This stress was something that I completely understood why he had the feelings he did, but really wasn't sure how to resolve it or if it even could be resolved. I found the way it was resolved to be very satisfying and that I liked the outcome.
Of course there was nothing NOT to like about the sex scenes. I personally have my favorite. :)-
Keaton Jaco is one of the bears best and brightest defenseman but he has a few secrets of his own not only is he a workaholic which that is just putting it mildly of course no one really knows that. Outwardly everyone assumes Keaton is just a playboy but really he’s not. Keaton may be only the top defenseman of the bears hockey team but is also in school to get his master’s degree and lastly writing a book. On top of all that his attraction for the older independent realist Harlow Goldsmith is all very real. Of course Harlow doesn’t see Keaton except as a young guy terming him as “puppy” and to help him edit his book. What happens when Keaton’s sexual agreement with Harlow becomes much more than just physical?
Yes as I stated before Ms. Smith can write interesting characters so despite the spelling errors there is that and the story is wonderful. I really liked Harlow her tough no nonsense independent feisty stubborn attitude was intriguing. On the other hand I also fell for Keaton yes he was handsome and played the playboy jock quite well but there is more to him than meets the eye. I did wonder if Axel Keaton’s dog was okay though. He seems to get left with his mom when Keaton leaves for the cruise but also doesn’t make any appearance when Keaton and Harlow are at his house. Usually puppies are into everything and aren’t as well behaved as in the book so I think a little more research of dogs and their behavior would be a little better. I also can’t wait to read on to see what happens with Remington and Maxima but most of all to figure out what happens with Vance and Dacey do they actually get married to by following the family tradition, time will tell and hopefully so will Ms. Smith. So can I recommend the book yes for all lovers of sports romance but be forewarned this isn’t a heavy play by play into the hockey world so if you want something like that don’t get this book it’s romance pure and simple. Lastly I will get more books by Ms. Smith especially in this series to find out the further adventures of the hockey team the bears.
