This Story Is Flirty

Publisher's Summary

"It's not a matter of if you get hurt but of how bad and when."

I can't say they didn't warn me. Right now, I realize: I probably should have listened. Because if there's anyone who has no business playing a sport that requires a helmet, pads, and a liability waiver, it's this girl. The same girl who once knocked herself out during a game of backyard baseball. I stepped up to the plate, pulled the bat back a little too far to swing, and clocked myself in the back of the skull. Boom. Lights Out Lucy.

That's how I got my roller derby name. So yeah. Maybe I should have known better.

But what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right? That's the whole reason I laced up a pair of skates to begin with. Well, that and this other little confession I need to make. Amid all the estrogen and girl power that fuels the world of women's roller derby, this insanity may have started because of a guy. Eyeroll, I know. Sadly, today on the oval track, it's about to come to a very bloody end. And all this slow-motion introspection might be part of my life flashing before my eyes. I'm going down hard and fast, with a set of Atomic Turquoise wheels aimed right at my face. Lights Out Lucy, indeed.

Wonderfully smart laugh out loud story


This is my first introduction to Elicia Hyder and she scored a new fan. I don't know that I'd categorize the book as a romance because though Lucy and West were a cute couple with chemistry and a developing relationship that was just a part of the story. It was Lucy's emotional growth and confidence that struck me as the main theme of the story. Along with the humor there were some really moving moments.
I listened to the audible version and thought the narrator Callie Dalton did a great job of bringing the characters to life and conveying the energy in the story.

Fun with skates

Laugh out loud funny and a scoop of love. The characters are hysterical. Lucy and West were a cute couple with chemistry. Lucy is accident prone and tries out for the roller derby team. Her boss cannot remember her name after working with her for 6 months. Lucy is emotionally crushed because her father has remarried. Throw in a roommate, a brother, and working in social media marketing.

This is a great story. I wanted to pull out my skates for a lap around the rink.

Where are my skates, I want to be on a derby team!

I loved this book. The characters were so interesting and as I said... now I want to be on a roller derby team, or at the very least go to a game.

Yay for roller derby!

I'm a retired skater and lover of romance. This was perfect: a girl coming into her own, becoming braver than she ever thought she could be.

The author has to either be a skater herself or an excellent researcher. Well done and cute story.

Loved this book!

I really enjoyed this book. Personally I don’t know a whole lot about roller derby so it was fun to watch a newbie learn the sport and come into her own over the course of the story. Narrator does a great job of bringing the story to life.

Girlfriends and skates!

Very cute book. I loved all the characters, this was fun and funny read. It made me want to skate again. It was PG in terms of sexiness, but it’s rather nice to read the quality of the book then deep sex scenes. The narrator was also amazing, she kept the story riveting and in the now for me. Can’t wait to listen to the next one.

Lights Out Book!

I've read this, as an actual book, but there's something about hearing it (again) that made it so awesome. And I had forgotten a few things, so before starting book #2 I wanted to read it again.
Elicia Hyder brings her characters to life with such enthusiasm that you feel like these characters are your best friends. I find myself making the same facial gestures or sighs that the characters make in the book, because everyone is so relateable.
This book was so fun. I never even gave roller derby a thought but now I'm dying to find out in my area.
I was worried about some character relationships not going the way I wanted them to go, but in the end, everything about this book was perfect!
Lucy is a funny, down to earth, accident prone young lady looking for an outlet. And boy oh boy did she find it! She evolved throughout the story and stepped out of her comfort zone in such an amazing way.
Thank you Elicia, for another amazing book!
