Publisher's Summary

What if Romeo wore hockey skates, and Juliet was raised on a farm next door?

As a lifelong Vermonter, there are three beliefs I’ve always held true:

  1. Our family farm is everything.
  2. Hockey is a close second.
  3. The Todds next door are our sworn enemies.

But this season will test everything I stand for. 

I have an illicit side job that could cost me my hockey scholarship. And now Maggie Todd knows my secret. She’s waiting for the right moment to use it against me. But every time I face off against her, I learn things I shouldn’t want to know. Like how deeply her competitive streak runs, and how sexy that is. And how easy it is to make her blush...everywhere.

An Adler and a Todd cannot be lovers. Breaking that rule is like pulling a pin on a grenade - everything in my life could blow up. Can we surrender to these feelings...or will our families’ feud make us its next casualty?

Enemies to lovers at its best!

I loved listening to this book. Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton did an outstanding job as Maggie and Tate. As they always do. Their voices are perfect for these characters, and their chemistry is always on point. The story in itself is outstanding, but these narrators make it even better. I recommend this book, it’s 100 percent perfection.

This book completely blindsided me. In the best possible way. I loved everything about it. It is beautifully written for starters. And it is literally unputdownable. I just didn’t want to stop reading. Victoria Denault wrote a masterpiece. The story, the characters, the setting, the plot twist, the ending! Blindsided deserves more than five stars. It’s brilliant!

Blindsided is a very entertaining, laugh-out-loud, steamy, and emotional enemies to lovers slash secret relationship slash forbidden love story that will have you rushing to the end to find out what happens. And I’m telling you, the way everything comes together at the end is just brilliant.

Tate Adler and Maggie Todd live in neighboring farms, but a feud between their families has made then lifelong enemies. And they have no idea why. But the hate is real, though. And their banter is hilarious. Their animosity is mostly inherited and it developed when they were kids, so when they find themselves forced to spend more time together as adults, they realize that they actually have a very volatile and explosive chemistry. And when it catches fire, things will never be the same again.

I loved everything about Blindsided. It is hilarious, but it has an emotional counterbalance that gives it depth, not only to the story but to the characters and what they’re going through. It’s the perfect introduction to the Moo U series based on Sarina Bowen’s World of True North. The college atmosphere blends perfectly with the rural environment and the hockey. And the side characters will have you wanting for more. I cannot wait for all these hockey players!

I also loved the Vermontyness of it. I’m sure that’s not even a word, but it should be. All the farm work, the farmers’ market shenanigans, the family dynamics, the apples, and the goat cheese insults had me smiling from ear to ear. And let’s not forget the barn.

Blindsided is a dream come true for True North fans. It has that Vermonty magic about it, but it’s perfectly wonderful as a standalone. It really is outstanding on its own, and I recommend it to anyone who loves hockey, farmers, and great romance stories.

So much love for this book

Let me start by saying that Magnolia and Tate are smoking hot together. Their chemistry is off the charts. This book is a fun enemies to lovers romance that I could not put down. Both main characters are strong-willed and proud young adults that are trying to keep their families farms afloat . I got so invested in these characters I was yelling advise at them like they could hear me. The author created such a vivid world with very deep characters that you just can't help but care for.  I love the added family feud drama. It really gave the relationship that extra layer of urgency. And the ending twist was one I definitely did not see coming. Great book.
The audiobook was actually a reread for me and it made the book that much better. Teddy and Erin were the perfect Tate and Maggie.

Loved this enemies to lovers romance!

I loved Blindsided. It has a bit of everything. A family feud, hate to love chemistry, hilarious antics, a swoony hockey hero and sassy heroine set in Sarina Bowen’s True North World. I devoured this.

Maggie is smart, sassy and sweet. She is part of the Todd family whom rival the Adler’s.

Tate plays hockey at Vermont University. He is hard working and loves his family despite their flaws and issues with the Todd’s. He didn’t have any qualms about put them in their place when it came to the families never ending feud.

Maggie and Tate have fantastic chemistry. The hate to love made for some bedroom scenes that had me fanning myself. Although there were some qualities of the characters that I found slightly immature it in no way took from my overall love for their story. This was my first book by Victoria Denault and I adored her writing. I’ll most definitely be on the lookout for more of her work in the future.

Teddy Hamilton and Erin Mallon are two of my favourite narrators. They never disappoint with the passionate and humorous story telling and totally knocked this one out of the park!

A wholesome romance

This book was so enjoyable. There is just something down to earth and wholesome about having Vermont as the setting. Add in the fact that both main characters work on their family farms and participate in farmers market just makes them feel more realistic.

Blindsided

Ok, ok I know it is a New Adult book but the drawing out of the feud drove me mad. Like why tell me why these two families hated each other. Did it make me not want to keep listening heck no, it made me keep listening because I HAD to know why!

I loved the character and the setting of this book. The sisters and the brother kind of steal your heart.

Oh we have to talk about the heat between Maggie and Tate is so hot your ear will turn red. I loved the enemies to lovers it really is icing on the cake.
The ending was perfect!
I loved the narration.

Loved the Vermont spin on this Hockey Romance

I’m all about hockey romances and I was excited to start into a new series. I agree with another reviewer, there wasn’t much hockey in this one, however the story held on its own. Loved the Enemies to Lovers storyline and narration was on point. Looking forward to more of this series.

Highly recommend

This book had great funny moments and lots of steamy bits. I liked how Tate and Maggie were written. Unlike the real version of Romeo and Juliet these two were not star crossed lovers. They really hated each other, but that 1 moment were feelings start to change was brilliant. I liked how the fued went on and on but the story didn't drag. The ending was very cleverly written and the cause of the long standing fued was revealed. Now I am off to the second book, so enjoy. Happy reading!
