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.

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.

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.

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.

Fun, sweet book!

I loved this book! It made me want to go skating again, though I'm sure that would not end well for me. Honestly, I normally wouldn't read a roller derby book, but two things made me read this one. First, I love this author's other books, so of course I was curious about this one. I mean, SHE wrote it, so the chances were super high that it would be good, but... roller derby? So I read the blurb about it, and that cinched it! It even sounded interesting. It's a great story, with engaging characters that I enjoyed getting to know. The romance was sweet, and the chemistry was deliciously intense.

If there was a sequel, I'd buy it right now.
