I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
I really enjoyed this story. I liked the characters, liked the plot, and I liked the setting. I like reading romances with sports. And this author actually bothered to describe the sport. You know what I didn't like? It's the 3rd in a series, but the first 2 weren't available!
I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
The cover convinced me to get this book, yep, watching that HOT male body while listening to a contemporary romance story was exactly what I wanted. And although the story was ok I did not love it. The heroine was annoying and her constant whining got to me. The overall plot of this story was underwhelming and I did not believe the romance. The couple had lots of hot sex but I did not see the love developing... The narrator was ok too. Did not add much emotion to the story, but then again, it was not that emotional anyway... I guess I was expecting a hot sports and romance story like the one from Rachel Gibson but this one was all about sex...
To relax I listen to my books. It's like yoga but better, you don't have to bend your body!!
I wasn't sure i was going to like this book but as it got into it. I couldn't stop listening to it. It was great. The only thing that I don't like is that this was BOOK 3 of the series and the other 2 are not in audible format. That's a real bummer.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
I've listened out of order but I really don't think it matters much but I just couldn't resist the cover (how sad am I?) alright I liked the sound of the story too.
This is one of those books that I enjoyed yes - but didn't love - due entirely to the female character's personality - "I don't, I won't, I'm not going to, I want more, I'm not looking, I'll choose it myself etc etc etc" you get the picture. IF she had been blessed with a more pleasant character then I could have thoroughly shared in the romance and passion not just the very hot, explicit love scenes. There was a tender romantic love scene at the end but it was a little too late for redemption.
Worth a credit? Yes, if you can see past her PMS attitude and I will download another as I am enjoying the whole ice hockey scene, which is a brand new theme for me.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I really enjoyed the first two books but this one is just ok for me. I enjoy a story with more drama involved. The sexual content is good but it just lacked the other things I like thrown in. I want angst, suspense, danger..... you get the idea. This is just so mediocre. If you have gotten the other two books in this series and you want to continue with the story I would suggest adding this one to your wish list and catching it on sale.
It ranks a 5 star an if there was a higher rank i would give one
Tyler Anderson He said the man i want he is a bad boy but is very good to a girl
no an she is very good for my first time hearing her
yes I did
drawn out ..... the pattern for this whole series is couples admit feeling in last chapter of book .... forgiveness is also given way to easy right at end of story .... too much push and pull
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
While most of this "hockey romance" was light & fun, there were disturbing moments of violence and domination. Hitting another human being is always wrong, regardless of the current trend in popular fiction that promotes sexual violence against women.
Tyler has a violent streak, which he mainly controls by playing hockey. Tyler, while usually charming and friendly, had no problem being aggressive and degrading to Jenna when he felt the urge. The creepy part was how he honestly believed he was a normal guy with real feelings for Jenna.
Jenna (tattooed bartender) was a huge disappointment, a pathetic wimp who played the martyr with her family, in her career and with Tyler. She actually thought that accepting physical abuse was a sign of strength, rather than a lack of self respect. It was sad and depressing how Jenna thought so little of herself.
In many ways. Jaci Burton is an incredibly talented author. Too bad she doesn't write about a confident woman who expects to treated with respect, gentleness and admiration.
Love this erotica with a side of love story and hockey! The characters develop nicely together and the background of the families.
