Viviana Land just can`t seem to say no to her younger sister. Somehow, the curvaceous society page reporter gets lassoed into serving as her niece`s Busy Bee scout leader. One overheated engine later, Viviana and her girls find themselves in the Green Hills Ice Rink. Enter Alain Lessard, the charmingly handsome defenseman for the Philadelphia Wildcats, who is donating his summer to coaching the youth league.
When our intrepid reporter is given the opportunity to write the break-out story of her career, Viviana leaps at the chance. Thinking it would be easy to flirt and tease some juicy tidbits out of Alain, Viviana soon finds herself falling for the sensual, younger, kind-hearted man. Will she put aside her virtual pen for a chance to stay at her new paramour`s side? Or will Viviana finally get away from those mundane bakery opening articles by using the man she may possibly be in love with?
First off I’m going to say I’m a bit odd. I love reading about sports, but this girl doesn’t watch them. Well that is not totally true. When a town I’m living in has a winning team and there are playoffs, I’ll watch to support them and surprisingly I enjoy myself. Now give me a book about sexy football players, burly MMA fighters, and wonderfully aggressive hockey players; I’m all over that with bells on.
So of course I had to pick up V.L. Locey’s novel, Pink Pucks & Power Plays. I did find the name a bit peculiar, but after reading it, it absolutely fits 100%. I do have to say though I’m a bit disappointed no pink pucks were hurt in the making of this book. Come on!!! I really wanted a pink puck to drop.
Viviana gets herself in a major pickle. You see it coming from miles, but all you could do is stare and watch the train wreck. First, she is a reporter and her hot new assignment, Alain, hates reporters with a burning passion and rightfully so. Then when sparks fly, but she doesn’t put any breaks on when she knows it will only end in disaster. I will give her kudos though for her recovery. Short of being a hot mess, she handled it with class, with her head held high – well mostly high.
Pink Pucks & Power Plays was a wonderful read. I like my books with a bit of spice, humor, drama and romance. Ms. Locey delivered hands down. While, yes you knew what was going to happen, it was so much fun seeing how deep Viviana would get herself before everything tumbling down around her. This is a great escape, but be warned only cute adorable hockey is involved. I do have to say it didn’t stop me from rooting for those little bumble bees.
Thank you for the laughs, nervous anticipation, and lovely romance. It’s always nice to enter a world where the women aren’t always perfect, the friends are brutally honest, and the kids are cheek pinching adorable. The hero was a bit too amazing but hey who wouldn’t want an amazing man who is beyond words gorgeous, can cook and is great in bed. Oh and he can forgive when he has been wronged. You can’t help but love them. Smooches Alain. Wish there were more men out there like you.
