Summary:

USA Today Bestselling author Jami Davenport presents another Seattle Sockeyes hockey romance and the fifth book in her Game On in Seattle sports romance series showcasing alpha male heroes of football, baseball, and hockey.

Brimming with attitude and broken beyond repair, Isaac "Ice" Wolfe has a heart as cold as his nickname, and he likes it that way--until he meets his neighbor Avery Maxwell. Avery is unlike any woman he's ever known. Her smile thaws his frozen heart. Being with her heals his broken places. She makes him feel, and for Isaac that's not always a good thing. Isaac has burned every bridge in his professional hockey career. When he's traded to the Seattle Sockeyes halfway through their inaugural season, he knows he won't get another chance. He's never been a team player, yet he needs to become one--and fast.

Avery has only wanted one thing in her life--to train and show horses. Her decision to drop out of college to pursue her riding career causes a rift with her big sister, but Avery is tired of following everyone else's dreams. Now she's following her own, and no one is going to distract her from her passion--until she meets a dark stranger and his cantankerous dog.

When Isaac is warned away from Avery by the team's captain, who happens to be Avery's future brother-in-law, Isaac sees the writing on the wall. It's Avery or his career. To Isaac, a life without hockey wouldn't be a life worth living. But what about a life without Avery?

Do Isaac and Avery sacrifice their life's passions for their mutual passion for each other, or do they fight to have it all, even if by doing so, they might lose everything in the end?

My Review:

Intro: I am pretty particular about sports romance. I am a big sports fan—basically every sport aside from football and golf—but hockey has been one of the greatest loves of my life since I was a wee toddler. So I am pretty picky about hockey romances. The sport talk must be accurate. I would prefer it be accurate and if it can’t be accurate, not to include it at all. I was happy to find that all of the hockey was pretty accurate and the story was pretty great as well.

Characters:

Heroine: Avery-I loved her. She was such a sweet heroine. I immediately liked her. As I normally do with people who are kind to animals. She had a good soul and is the exact sort of heroine a rough around the edges hero like Issac needed.

Hero: Issac-I loved that he was a journeyman, brawler sort of hockey player who does not tend to play nice with anyone whether they be opponents, teammates, media, coaches etc. Those guys are my favorites—even though there aren’t any on my team because my team’s GM is not to be trifled with. I loved watching his journey and seeing him soften up towards Avery.

Chemistry-They were so well matched. Issac needed a heroine like Avery. She had this innate kindness to her that worked so well with the tough nature that Issac had. They were the perfect complement to each other.

Chemistry Rating:


Conclusion: I cannot tell you how much I loved this book. I loved both Issac and Avery. I found myself loving Avery’s sweet nature as much as I loved Issac and his badassness. I also loved that the hockey was pretty accurate which this hockey fan greatly appreciated. I think I need to read the rest of this series. Badly.
