Scorin' on the Fourth of July by Cassandra Carr
My rating: 4 ½ of 5 stars
Free agent Mikael Maatta just signed a five-year professional hockey contract with the Buffalo Storm. He is immediately asked to participate in a charity hockey tournament on Fourth of July weekend. To his appreciation, his goalie was Terri Kirkland, gold medalist on the US women’s hockey team. The two instantly connect but fear that Terri’s career may take her out of Buffalo.
I just love Mikael and Terri. I think it’s great that they both share a passion for hockey. I liked that she showed him around Buffalo, and that they took things slow, sort-of. They are a really cute couple whose story I didn’t want to end. Knowing Cassandra Carr, they will make an appearance if future Storm books. I hope so, because I didn’t get enough of them.
Carr did an excellent job with Mikael’s dialog. It was believable that he was from Finland, by the way he spoke and not always following US slang.
The plot is well done, centering on the hockey tournament. Being a hockey mom, I can appreciate a holiday hockey tournament since that is what our lives revolve around. I like that fellow Storm Sebastian St. Amant and Rob D’Amico made an appearance in the book. Scorin’ on the Fourth of July is a quick read at 69 pages (according to my eReader). It is a vivid story that is well-written and heartwarming. This is a fantastic read for lovers of sports romances.
