When Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting

When Sparks FlyWhen Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Helena Hunting heats things up with WHEN SPARKS FLY. In this story, Avery Spark and her roommate/best friend, Declan McCormick crossed the line after he takes care of her following a car accident. The story takes place in Colorado Springs.

Avery and her two sisters: Landon and Harley, own an event hotel named Spark House. It’s an interesting hotel. A lot of the story revolves around creative ways to grow their business.

Avery and Declan have been best friends since college. They are likeable characters. They played intramural soccer together. I love how they share crossword puzzles. They both show a lot of growth in the story.

Avery dated their friend Sam in college. When they broke up, Declan chose Avery over Sam. Sam makes an appearance in this story that causes some friction between the characters. The two have some issues they need to resolve. Their friendship is jeopardized, but they realize the importance of the other in their lives.

Helena Hunting does a nice job with this story. I recommend this book to people who enjoy friends to lovers’ romances. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Book Blurb


I’m done with dating.

Happily-ever-after isn’t in the cards for me, so I’m officially taking myself off the market.

Hockey is my mecca.

The arena my temple.

The ice the altar I worship at.

Then…I met her.

Strip me naked and run me over with a Zamboni—she’s the textbook definition of a bad love match.

Amara Miller, beyond beautiful and effortlessly drawing me into her orbit and making it impossible to resist her.


It should have been a simple cross-country move.

Instead, it sent me crashing—quite literally—into the captain of Coach’s new hockey team.

Did I mention he was half-naked when it happened?

It doesn’t matter that he’s sexy as sin and the swooniest motherpucker I’ve ever met.

I will not lust after hockey players.

Been there.

Done that.

Bought the maternity shirt.

And Ryan Donnelly? He’s pretty much Mr. Hockey.

The problem is, I’m not the only one enamored with him—my kid is too.

It’s turning into a problem, because this mama doesn’t have time to play games when it comes to our hearts.

  Scoring Beauty is a sporty, sexy romcom featuring a hot-mess (at least in her eyes) single mom who’s about to knock this swoony motherpucking hockey player on his very fine behind. This interconnected stand-alone comes complete with your favorite can’t-mind-their-own-business Covenettes, a next generation trying their hands at the matchmaking shenanigans, and a guaranteed happily-ever-after.

Scoring Beauty (BTU Alumni #6) by Alley Ciz Review

Scoring Beauty (BTU Alumni #6)Scoring Beauty by Alley Ciz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Alley Ciz lights the lamp with SCORING BEAUTY (BTU Alumni #6). In this story, New Jersey Blizzard NHL Captain Ryan Donnelly swore off dating for the season. Then he literally bumped into single mom Amara Miller. Their chemistry was instantaneous. Too bad she’s the coach’s daughter.

I love Ryan and Amara. They are both amazing people. Ryan is afraid of having his heart broken again. Amara will always put her son Maverick first and is also fearful of being hurt. Ryan is great with Maverick. I love that they play hockey and Mario Kart together. I appreciate that Maverick is friends with Ryan’s younger brother, Sean. I love Ryan’s “Framily.” Heck, I love all the characters in this story, well except Bryce but every story needs its villain.

I appreciated the text handles. The texts throughout the novel are amusing. The Next Gen cracked me up. I love the Coven. It would be fun to hang out with them. SCORING BEAUTY is a heartfelt skillfully written novel. It had me laughing, crying, and swooning. I look forward to book #7. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Book Blurb:

The Vegas heat just kicked up a notch with the arrival of ice hockey’s newest expansion team – the Sin City Saints. Maverick Hagen’s fall from grace was more like a crash landing. His record-breaking career ended after a fight with an opponent over a woman left him with a broken leg, or so the pundits thought. Returning to the sport he loves as the captain of the league’s new expansion team, the Sin City Saints, his lucrative contract comes with just one rule—no romantic distractions. Gia Ford also makes her living playing a game—poker. The rounder has hit her stride in Vegas, quietly building her bank account one casino at a time. She’s got a score to settle, and nothing will get in her way—not even the sexy hockey player who’s willing to lose money just to see her in action. Maverick attracts attention, upsetting Gia’s under-the-radar game. Maverick and Gia can’t afford to give in to their magnetic attraction, with his career rebounding and her winnings growing. But the hotter their chemistry burns, the harder it is to deny. So will they or won’t they? In Vegas, there’s only one way to settle it—a bet, of course.

MAVERICK (Sin City Saints Hockey #1) by Brenda Rothert Review

Maverick (Sin City Saints Hockey #1)Maverick by Brenda Rothert
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Brenda Rothert is heating things up with MAVERICK (Sin City Saints Hockey #1). Maverick Hagen is the new captain of the Sin City Saints expansion NHL team. Gia Ford is a professional gambler. Both do not need any distractions. However, after months of hanging around each other, they cannot deny their attraction to each other. So, they decide on a bet to settle their next action.

I like Maverick. He overcame what should have been a career-ending injury. He is persistent and hard working. Gia is a fun heroine. People underestimate her. She is smart and focused. She is excellent at reading people. She has a dangerous score to settle. The two have a sizzling chemistry.

Brenda Rothert did a great job with the start of the Sin City Saints Hockey series. It was creative and skillfully written. The characters were dimensional and likeable. I’m looking forward to Pike’s story next. I recommend this story to people who enjoy sports romances. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Off-Season by Jami Davenport

Off-Season by Jami Davenport is now live!

Get it on All Platforms


I just ended my rookie year with the Seattle Sockeyes in a win-or-go-home game, and we went home. I played a big part in that loss thanks in part to my lack of team play. It's time to lick my wounds, re-examine my role, and come to terms with demons I've been avoiding for too long. I buy an RV and take to the wilderness for a little solitude and lot of soul-searching. Just me, my dog Bones, and nature. There's one problem. My campsite neighbor is a too-cheerful, busy-body camp host. She brings out the worst in me, but I can't stop thinking about sharing a sleeping bag with her.


As a brand ambassador for a large RV manufacturer, it's my job to make sure everyone is enjoying their camping experience. Usually I'm quite good at fixing problems and assisting campers until I meet the hot, grumpy hockey player next door. He claims he wants to be left alone; but after one look at his lost expression, I'm certain that's the last thing he needs. To complicate things, we have chemistry, the kind which blazes past all misgivings and singes everyone in sight.
