I always put it in the net...

Since being traded to the Rochester Riot, I’m known as the big guy with the heart of gold.

My opponents come after me fast and hard, while fair weather fans play armchair quarterback about my talent or lack thereof.

But they don’t judge me for the way I look like they do to Phoebe. Her haunted eyes tell me that she thinks guys like me don’t go for girls like her.

Chubby. Thick. Plus-sized. Whatever slurs she endures, she stuffs that down – which makes her shove me squarely in the friend zone.

She has a million reasons why we won’t work, which is why I’d rather be more than a friend – proving how much I want her with my mouth, my body, and all the filthy words she longs to hear.

From the moment I lay eyes on her I know that I’m going to fall hard, so when a predator targets her, he dares me to cross the line.
You see, I already consider Phoebe mine and what belongs to me… I protect that with my life.

Even if I destroy my career in the process.

The Net (Rochester Riot #6) by Colleen Charles Review

The Net (Rochester Riot #6)The Net by Colleen Charles
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Colleen Charles hits it in “THE NET” with the sixth book in the Rochester Riot series. This is Silas McKay’s and Phoebe Reinhart’s story. Silas has had a crush on Phoebe since he met her when CoachB was hired to design their new uniforms in book 5, THE LINE. Phoebe, however, does not think he is seriously interested in her because of her size. After she meets his sister, Madison, who is a plus-sized model, she realizes he might be serious about her.

I enjoyed this story; Phoebe is gun-shy after suffering abuse because of her size. It is horrible what she went through. I thought I was clever how her past was tied to the present of this story. I also love her product expansion idea. Silas wants to prove to Phoebe that she is his forever and perfect as she is. He is a wonderful character that is protective and lovable.

THE NET is the perfect addition to the Rochester Riot series. It is heartfelt and thought provoking. The story is skillfully written and entertaining. I’m looking forward to Madison’s story, FLOPPER (Vegas Venom Book 1). I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Rebounding by Jami Davenport Cover Reveal

Rebounding by Jami Davenport releases on June 23rd!

Available on All Platforms

Meet the newest expansion team in hockey--The Portland Icehawks. They're a group of guys with chips on their shoulders out to make their former teams regret letting them go. They won't be stopped until they win it all. What they haven’t counted on is love being part of that equation.

As a thirty-five-year-old hockey player, I've learned a hard lesson in loyalty. I was supposed to be a lifer for the Chicago Tigers, but the team left me out in the cold, choosing to protect younger players in the expansion draft. The next thing I know, I'm in a strange city with a fledgling team, and my estranged wife has served me with divorce papers. Not the best way to start a new chapter in my career.

As the team struggles to find its identity and win games, I struggle with my role as team captain, proving I'm not too old to play at a high level, and getting beyond my failed marriage. All this is complicated by an undeniable attraction to the owner's daughter. As the team racks up the losses, I seek solace with the one woman whose very presence could destroy what's left of my career.

Sometimes love is comfortable and subtle. Other times it hits you with the force of a puck to the jaw. I've never experienced the latter until now, and I can't stay away regardless of the consequences.

Big Shot by Kat Mizera

Big Shot by Kat Mizera releases on June 14th!

Available on All Platforms

Welcome to Fort Lauderdale—where the days are hot and the Knights are hotter.

I’ve always said I would settle down when the time—and the woman—was right. So having a friends-with-benefits relationship fits right into my plans. Until it doesn’t. The line between friendship and wanting more with the gorgeous doctor is blurring with each passing day. The more I get to know her, the harder it gets to stay away. I need to show Chloe there’s more to us than just chemistry… but first I have to admit it to myself.

I thought I had my life all mapped out. College, medical school, and then a demanding career as a successful doctor. Now I’m having doubts about all of it, and the last thing I need is a professional athlete with abs for days to add to my distraction and derail my plans. Falling for a big shot hockey player like Jude would be a mistake. But everything is so good between us— there’s no way I can just walk away.

“We shouldn’t do this, Miss Brenner. You work for me.” The words feel like acid leaving my mouth as everything south of it rebels at the idea of rejecting her. But I refuse to be the guy who takes advantage of the situation.
She untangles her hands from the front of my shirt and runs them up my forearms. Her fingers trace the lines of my tattoo. Her dark-purple nails are a stark contrast to her pale skin.
Nails that would feel amazing scouring my back once we’re both stripped of our clothes. “I do work for you, Mr. Kingston. And you know what the one good thing my piece-of-shit father did for me was?” Without giving me a chance to answer, she leans closer, bringing her lips to the shell of my ear and dropping her voice. “He gave me a twelve-month contract. You can’t fire me for an entire year. We might as well have some fun. I promise you, nothing needs to change. You’ll still drive me crazy Monday morning.”
“I’m not looking for a girlfriend, Daphne.” She’s saying all the right things. But when something seems too good to be true, it usually is.
“Good. Because the last thing I need is someone else who thinks they have a say over the way I live, Max. I’ve had enough of that to last a lifetime.”Her eyes dance between mine. “And I’m not looking for it now.”
I move closer, erasing any space between us. “Are you sure?”
My entire body riots at the idea that she could change her mind. But I ask it anyway because it’s the right thing to do.
Daphne nods her head with a beautiful smile on her lips. “Words, Miss Brenner. I need to hear the words.”
Excitement is hot.
But consent is fucking sexy.
Her fingers tighten on my arms. “I’m sure, Mr. Kingston. Now get me out of here.”
I reach into my pocket and pull three-hundred-dollar bills from my wallet and throw them on the bar. “Hey, Sawyer.” I wait for him to look up. “Can you tell Becks to catch an Uber back?”
Sawyer looks between Daphne and me and raises a brow. “Yeah. I’ve got ya covered.”
I frame Daphne’s face in both my hands. “Do you need to text your friends?”
“I’ll do it from the car.”
“No, baby. You’re going to be doing other things in the car. Text your friends.”

Fallen King (Restless Kings #3) by Bella Matthews Review

Fallen King (Restless Kings, #3)Fallen King by Bella Matthews
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Bella Matthews soars with FALLEN KING (Restless Kings #3). In this story, Daphne Brenner’s dream of one day running the charity of the Philadelphia Revolution hockey team is smashed when her father blind sides her by selling the organization that has been owned by her family for generations. One stipulation for the sale of the team is that her position as the executive assistant to the CEO stays intact for a year. Now she works for, Max Kingston, the oldest Kingston sibling, and new President of Operations for the Revolution.

I adored this story. Max and Daphne are wonderful characters. They are both driven and have amazing chemistry. My heart went out to Daphne and the position her father put her in. Max is a strong hero who wants to carve his own legacy. The plot was solid, and story was skillfully written. I love Max’s family. They are entertaining.

Max’s family also owns the Philadelphia Kings football team. I love that Daphne lives with Carys and Declan Sinclair. Declan is the quarterback of the Kings, so that causes some interesting drama.

This is the first book that I have read by Bella Matthews. After reading this book, I want to read the previous books in the Restless Kings and The Kings of Kroydon Hills series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
