A Slayers Hockey Series Novel
know… this chick hates me.
I should walk away, find some puck bunny to gleefully sit on my lap and tell me
what a big, hot, hockey stud I am–totally true, BTW. But there’s just
something about this feisty redhead I can’t let go. She’s got an edge to her
that’s sexy as hell and a smart mouth that’s been tying me up since the night I
met her.She tells me to forget it, we’re not happening. But this isn’t the kind of
woman a guy ever forgets. Especially when the air starts to sizzle and pop
every time we get within ten feet of each other. She’s in my head and under my
skin, and all I can think about is the way she looked at me that one time. Like
she already knew how it could be between us.I’m not the kind of guy a girl like her takes home… But maybe I want to be.

Quinn and Georgie didn’t start on the right foot for sure. Quinn was a hockey player, living a day one at the time, playboy but not a bad guy, having lots of friends but Georgie wasn’t part of them. Just trying so hard to push him away. For a man like Quinn, it was a challenge he wasn’t going to ignore. The more she rejected him, the more he had to get close to her.
This fire-cracker ignited into him a powerful connection she was trying so hard to reject.
This woman showed him how much she hated his guts and wasn’t hiding it at all, because letting a man like him in her life would break her heart.
I appreciated this sports romance with this strong hint of sexiness, a banter that made me smile and swoon at times. The characters were endearing, Quinn was a great surprise who was definitely more than his good looks, someone who really cared, his personality balanced perfectly with Georgie who was a real badass, but needed a little bit of sweetness sometimes.
I have to say their story was deeper than it seemed. Somehow I was a bit conflicted about the real issues that might tear them apart. It was dragged out a little but the author managed to convey their concerns with sincerity.
It was nonetheless a story I loved reading. Full of charm, full of heart with relatable characters.
It definitely made me want to hear more about this team.
