Hat Trick (IceCats Book 5) by Toni Aleo Review

Hat Trick (IceCats Book 5)Hat Trick by Toni Aleo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Toni Aleo is on a winning streak with HAT TRICK (IceCats #5). Carolina IceCats star D’Artagnan (Dart) Miklas meets Tennessee (Tennie) Dent before Owen Adler’s wedding. The two hit it off, but Dart needed to leave for the wedding. They decide to leave the rest to fate. Fate plays a major part in their story.

I really like both Dart and Tennessee. Dart is Owen Adler’s best friend (ALL THE SAUCE, IceCats #4). Owen marries Angela Paxton. I love that Dart is Angela’s “Dude of Honor” at their wedding. I adored how good Dart is with his little sister, Sabine.

Tennessee is a fun character. Her background in kinesiology and biomechanics is interesting. I enjoyed her love of the University of Tennessee and all things' orange.

The characters have interesting obstacles and challenges throughout this story. They have amazing chemistry. I love how they both grow and are dynamic. HAT TRICK is an excellent addition to the IceCats series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

The Wedding Winger by Delancey Stewart

Title
: The Wedding Winger
Series: The Zamboni Diaries
Author: Delancey Stewart
Genre: Sports (Hockey Romance), Rom Com, Second Chance, Matchmaker, Single Mom
Release Date: September 21, 2023
Cover Design: Kelly Lambert Greer






Sly Remington has a plan. And it does not involve falling in love with his high school crush, the literal girl next door. But sometimes, fate makes plans of its own...

Pro hockey has always been my destiny. And now that I’m right wing for the Wilcox Wombats? It’s my past and present… but I’m not so sure if it’s my future. I’m on the older side now, as hockey stars go, and I’m starting to worry about my lack of a backup plan.

The issue?

I’m no rocket scientist. Hockey’s what I’m good at. Sure, I graduated high school (with the help of my ultimate high school crush, Clara Connor, who was literally the girl next door.) And I got through college because everyone there was pretty invested in keeping me on the ice.

Now?

I’m working on the next phase of my life, but I can’t pretend I’ve got much faith that it’ll work out. I know who I am and what I’m good at. The same thing the women I date see: an athlete. Period.

But when my little brother drops the bomb of his engagement and Mom insists I come home solo, everything gets thrown into question. Not because Mom doesn't want me bringing a puck bunny to the wedding, but because she's got a matchmaking master plan up her sleeve.

And guess who she has in mind? None other than my HS tutor, Clara Connor, the newly divorced single mom living right next door. Did I mention she has a five-year-old daughter who’s better at getting my goat than my little brother on his best day?

Clara is a scientist now, and she’s got a lot on her plate already. So when Mom thrusts us together repeatedly, I do my best to be a good guy. Standup. Respectable. Friendly.

The thing is, Clara still gets under my skin. And when she tells me she had a crush on me back then too, and that maybe she still does?

The gloves are off.

The Wedding Winger (The Zamboni Diaries #1) by Delancey Stewart Review

The Wedding Winger (The Zamboni Diaries #1)The Wedding Winger by Delancey Stewart
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Delancey Stewart lights the lamp with THE WEDDING WINGER (The Zamboni Diaries #1). Wilcox Wombats right winger Sylvester (Sly) Remington heads home for the summer. He does not expect his high school crush, Clara Connor, to be living next door. She is a single mom with a daughter, Katie.

I love that both Clara and Sly had crushes on each other in high school but thought they were out of each other’s league, Clara being smart and Sly the star athlete. They both have some insecurities they deal with in this story. I love Clara’s job. She is a biologist tracking bear. Katie is adorable. I appreciated how good Sylvester is with her.

THE WEDDING WINGER is a heartfelt and entertaining second chance romance. Like CHECKING THE CENTER (The Zamboni Diaries #0.5), THE WEDDING WINGER starts out with the insight of Julius Ramon, the Wilcox Wombat’s Zamboni Driver. It is an excellent addition to The Zamboni Diaries series. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Original title: The Wedding Winger

Blurb:

When my parents took me to a hockey camp as a kid, they never dreamed it would take me off the path of becoming a doctor, like everyone else in the family. Unfortunately for them, the moment I stepped into that arena and onto that ice, there was no going back.


Fast-forward to my junior year at Brooks University, and I’ve got one shot to make it to the pros. It’s now or never. Because if I don’t? Hello, medical school. Good-bye, skates.


The season gets even harder when the hockey team is forced to work with the dance team for a fundraiser, and I’m paired with the daughter of my family’s sworn enemy. As much as I hate to admit it, Sutton Savage is hard not to notice with her dark hair, big blue eyes, and angelic face to go along with those mouthy lips. Soon, it’s damn near impossible for me to hate her. And before I know it, I’m striking up a deal with her for her to be my girlfriend.


My fake girlfriend.


Since we were kids, I’ve found Sutton to be an entitled brat, someone I couldn’t stand, but suddenly, I’m looking at her differently. And when no one is around, I still want to kiss her … and I realize things are becoming a lot more complicated than I ever imagined they would.


Romeo and Juliet were forbidden to be together, and look how well that turned out for them. The thing is, I’m beginning to see Sutton is worth drinking the poison for.


She might not be the one I’ve always wanted. But now, she’s the only one I see.

What to expect:

✔️Hockey Romance

✔️Ex-Step Siblings/Off-Limits

✔️Forced Proximity

✔️Overprotective/Obsessed Hero

✔️Frenemies with Benefits

✔️Off the charts ๐Ÿ”ฅ!





BLURB: 

It all starts with a little game of truth or dare…

That was my first mistake.  I’ve never been able to resist a dare and he damn well knows it.  Trust me, I realize it’s a personal flaw I need to work on.

My second mistake?

If I had to hazard a guess, I’d say it was when I agreed to a frenemies-with-benefits situation in order to get him out of my system once and for all.

The third one, just in case you’re wondering, was in thinking this wouldn’t explode in my face if I came up with a list of rules for us to follow.

1-This is in no way a relationship.  It’s strictly dickly.

2-No sleeping with other people while knocking boots.

3-Our situationship stays on the downlow.

But then he tacked on one of his own—no getting myself off unless it’s in front of him.

Oh…did I forget to mention that the guy in question is Ford Hamilton, my ex-stepbrother?  The very same one who may or may not remain an ex for long.

There’s only one thing left to say…

FML.
