Synopsis:

The Nighthawks are hockey’s new expansion team. They’re ice hot. And they’re all about the chase.

Christian:They call me a hockey god because I’m a beast on the ice . . . and off. Men want to be me and women just want me. But now that the New York Nighthawks expect me to lead their team to victory, it’s all work and no play. My eyes are on the prize. Until I meet Serena Ellis, a sexy, curvalicious blonde who doesn’t know me from jack. And just like that, I’m hooked.

Serena:I don’t do one-night stands—especially with celebrity jocks who date models. Lots of models. But the god of hockey is a temptation that’s hard for mere mortals to resist. And after the best kiss of my life, I’m ready to throw my one-night stand rule out the window. Except Christian Chase won’t let me. He doesn’t want a one-night stand. He wants it all.

📝My Review📝:

 Ice Hot (New York Nighthawks, #1)Ice Hot by Tracy Goodwin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars to Ice Hot by Tracy Goodwin!
This is a great start to what I believe is going to be a great series. Hockey romance is my absolute favorite of the sports romance genres. To me, there is nothing sexier than a hot shot hockey player. Additionally what makes this book an even better experience for me is I have found a new author to add to my TBR. Tracy Goodwin is definitely an author whose name I have seen before. Why I haven’t read one of her books before this, is a mystery to me. So I want to thank NetGalley for this recommendation. I will definitely be on the look out for the next book in the series. The author not only gave a great story with this books’s protagonists, but she gave us a good amount of inside on some of the other team members. I will also mention that Ice Hot has some of the most entertaining, loyal secondary characters I’ve read recently.

Christian and Serena…….
Christian is the new captain for the New York Nighthawks, NFL’s newest expansion team. Christian’s addition to this team and his recent two-time Stanley Cup wins makes him an asset the coaches and managers hope will lead the Nighthawks to their own trophy. Christian has had a tough childhood, with no support from his only living parent, his father. Since he came from nothing, he does his best to take nothing for granted. He is gorgeous, popular with women and fans but he has a side to him which is genuine. I think you should unravel the sexy enigma that is Christian on you own. Learning where he came from and how he got to where he is now, was a part of the book that the author used to really give us insight at what makes him tick. I will tell you, Christian is not all he seems. He was a gentleman. Was he perfect? No. Did he make mistakes? Yes, one in particular that had me wanting to kick his butt. Did he redeem himself? Hmmm…you’ll have to read to find out. I do promise you one of the happiest endings.

Serena is one of those heroines that I have crazy respect for from the first page. She is beautiful inside and out. But her most important attributes are her determination to be successful on her own terms. It was her determination, kindness, loyalty and take-no-nonsense attitude that made me her biggest fan. Okay, well second biggest when you consider how much Christian wanted her.

I won’t go into the detail of their relationship dynamic because you will enjoy reading that on your own. I will say there are insecurities among other hurdles that Serena and Christian will have to get over before their HEA. But when they do……One of my favorite happily-ever-afters!

This is definitely a must read. If you are a hockey romance fan, you can add this series to your TBRs. You won’t be disappointed. This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Somebody once said we don’t decide who we love. The world decides for us. But I disagree.
 
I believe love is a decision.
Who we love, how we love.
It’s in our control–in our hands.
I grew up having no clue about the true meaning of love. Money. Cars. Houses. Status. Fame. That’s what love means to the people around me.
It wasn’t until the woman I picked up in a bar came back into my life and showed me love can be so much more.
So, what’s the problem?
The woman I’m falling in love with believes in fairytales. She compares everything to a storybook and wants the happily-ever-after.
So while she’s stuck on recreating stories that have already been told, page by page, I’m showing her it’s time we write our own book.
Nobody ever said the journey of falling in love would be easy, just that it would be worth it.

📝My Review📝:

Jock (Boston Terriers #5)Jock by Jacob Chance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars! What an absolutely amazing book! I felt every emotion and hated when this book ended. Owen and Eliza’s story is hands down my favorite of the Boston Terriers series. This book is s must read!
If you haven’t read any of the other books in the Boston Terriers series, you are seriously missing out on talented, entertaining writing. These books have all the feels and the humor is adorable. That said, you can definitely read Jock as a standalone as with all of the series’ books. Jacob Chance is one of my favorite authors and I am always stalking and looking forward to what he gives us next.

One of my favorite aspects of this book as well as the others in the BT series is that while the characters are flawed, they are likable and fun to experience. The heroines are sassy and wary of these sexy athletes. I don’t blame them one bit but as you get to know these amazing heroes, you will find they are protective, loyal and complete gentleman. While I absolutely love this series and each book has its special place in my heart, Jock has become my absolute favorite. As a blogger, I read and recommend many, many books. That said, I have to say if you have not checked out this author yet you are truly missing out.

Owen is the quarterback for the Boston Terriers. All he wants is to play for the NFL. Unfortunately, some poor decisions have put that dream at jeopardy. Owen is determined to overcome and once again be the force that the Terriers need. Letting his team, and more importantly himself down, will not happen again. I loved that Owen owned his mistakes. He is one of my favorite male heroes, ever.

Eliza was a bit hard for me to connect with at first. But only because she had secrets that she hadn’t told Owen. My first loyalty was to him so I admit wanted to jump onto the pages and knock some sense into her. Eliza was not perfect. She definitely had some parts to her personality that were surprising. That said, I did understand her reasoning and couldn’t completely fault her for her decisions. Hey, that’s what angst is all about. But the way this book ended was nothing short of perfect for me.

I look forward to see who we’ll get to read about next!  #BookBoyfriend
This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it! 🙂

You know those stories where the smart girl tutors the dumb
jock? This isn’t it.
Blair
What’s the probability of insulting the one guy on campus I
need to help me pass statistics? If I knew, I wouldn’t be standing in front of
Wes Reynolds begging him to tutor me.
Basketball player, sexy, arrogant, always sleeping through
class… these are the things I knew about him. What I didn’t know is that he is
a seriously smart jock.
Wes
What’s the best way to get rid of the peppy and unrelenting
girl that keeps asking me to tutor her? If I knew, I wouldn’t be staring at her
tan legs and attempting to teach her statistics.
Sorority girl, fine as f**k, determined, ball buster… these
are the things I knew about her. What I didn’t know is that she is all the
things I didn’t realize I wanted or needed.
Or that one semester with her would change everything.

Excerpt
“Rise and shine,” Joel says as he nudges me. I’m not asleep.
I wish I were. My eyes are closed, hat pulled down, but there’s no sleep to be
had.
“She’s coming back for more.” The tone in his voice is
almost inspired.
I don’t have to look up to know who he’s talking about, but
I do anyway. She’s the most entertaining thing about this class. Open my eyes
and lift the hat, turn it backward so my view isn’t the least bit blocked.
Today she’s wearing little pink shorts that show off tan
legs, yellow tennis shoes that don’t match but somehow work, and a bracelet
with a little charm around her left ankle. It’s too small to make out, but I
stare anyway. Her brown hair is pulled up in a high ponytail, and she has a
megawatt smile plastered on her face. A big bow on top of her head is all she’d
need to look like head cheerleader of my high school fantasies.
“Wes, hey, can I talk to you for a second?”
“What’s up?”
I’m hella impressed by the balls on this chick. She’s put
her foot in her mouth, not once, but twice, and damn near insulted the entire
student athlete population, but she keeps coming back. She has determination
and grit. I admire that about her.
I also am not in the least bit offended by her assumption
that I’m a dumb jock. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t surprised she came right
out and asked who my tutor was, but I know exactly what it looks like. I’ve fed
into the stereotype for years, doing nothing to make it seem otherwise. Well,
nothing but get straight A’s.
“I have sort of a favor.”
“What’s up?” I stand to walk with her out of the class.
“The tutor center was a bust. I know you said . . .” She
looks like she’s choosing her words carefully. “Do you have old study notes or
tests from previous semesters?”
“Still convinced I’m not capable of passing on my own, huh?”
“I’m sorry, really, no offense. I just want in on whatever
study materials you’re using. I can’t afford to fail another test. What’s your
secret?”
The secret? I’m fucking smart. Photographic memory smart and
statistics is my whole world, but I can’t resist messing with her.
“You know, saying no offense doesn’t make whatever you’re
saying less offensive. It just makes you feel better about saying something
offensive.”
Joel snickers behind me. I just can’t resist fucking with
her. She’s making it too easy.
“Sorry. I’m really so sorry. What about the other guys on
the team? Anyone have any awesome math tutors who aren’t available to us
non-jock students? I can pay.”
“Couldn’t say for sure, but I don’t think so. Most the guys
hold their own academically.” I lean in catching a whiff of her hair. It smells
good—like sugar cookies or candy canes or something sugary sweet that I want to
sink my teeth into. “Shocking, I know.”
Her shoulders slump in defeat, and I can tell she’s finally
accepted that I have no answers for her. At this point, I almost wish I knew of
someone to send her to. I don’t exactly travel in circles that clue me in on
secret study sessions and underground tutor societies.
“Thanks anyway.” She gives a little wave with the hand
clutched around the strap of her backpack.
Joel catches up to me, and we watch as she crosses the
campus toward the library. “Dude. That chick . . .”
“I know,” I say, and we continue to stare after her
completely awe stricken.

I love her. But
she loves him.
I’d known Avery Grant was the one for me since the moment she bossed me
around on the playground. After over a decade of friendship, I’m still biding
my time, waiting for the moment she realizes everything she’s ever wanted is

Then one white envelope sends my world spiraling.
A wedding invitation, announcing Avery’s engagement to the one man who
could never deserve her: Miles Johnson.
Miles is the worst kind of human — and my biggest rival. Everything I
can do, he thinks he can do better, including being the best rookie pitcher the
MLB has seen in decades. But if he makes her happy, who am I to interfere?
But when Avery shows up on my doorstep, devastated and heartbroken from
Miles’s betrayal, I can’t help but open my doors for her.
The timing is all wrong, but I won’t miss my shot.
This time, I refuse to strike out.

📝My Review📝:

Tackle (Boston Terriers #4)Tackle by Jacob Chance

4.5 Stars…

Tackle by Jacob Chance in the 4th book in his Boston Terriers series and I am hooked. No sooner have I dived into his latest, and I’m already wondering whose story this author will give us next. While reading Tackle, I experience so many feel-good emotions. Though mostly I swooned. Yes, I admit; I was completely smitten with Trevor Lincoln. I expected Trevor to be more of a womanizer but I was pleasantly surprised to realized I misunderstood him. In the previous books of the series he is portrayed as a playboy. Well, Trevor was a pure gentleman. I don’t want to give anything else away regarding his personality; you can determine that on your own. I will say this book was a true pleasure to read.

Trevor and Grace are introduced via mutual friends in the previous book. While Trevor doesn’t hide his feelings for Grace, she completely denies hers. It was fun to watch the banter between them as they headed toward a relationship. Another aspect I enjoyed was the slow burn between them. The fact they took their time was a plus. Trevor was sweet, considerate, and patient with Grace. Unfortunately, Grace was not having any of Trevor’s charming wit. She didn’t trust him and wanted to convince herself she didn’t like him. For several reasons I will admit, Grace was not my favorite heroine. She was rude at times; only to Trevor it seemed. While I did understand her behavior, I didn’t like it. And when a situation arose toward the book’s end, I was frustrated with her behavior.

As a whole, Tackle was an enjoyable read with a nice steady pace, well-developed characters and a believable story. As usual, I am looking forward to the next book by this author. If you haven’t read the rest of the Boston Terriers series, I recommend it. While Tackle can definitely be read as a standalone, you would only benefit from reading the whole series.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
