Publisher's Summary

The Vancouver Narwhals’ star goalie. The New York Krakens’ head coach. This can’t possibly be a recipe for disaster. 

Goalie Brad Spencer is flying high after his team clinches the Cup and names him their MVP. Like his teammates, he’s ready to celebrate - ideally with someone in his bed. When he slips off to a gay bar, he meets someone who’s gorgeous, willing, and...absolutely the last man he should be touching.

Head coach Anthony Caruso just wants to have a few drinks and get laid to soothe the sting of his team losing the Cup. Then, that ridiculously sexy player from the opposing team strolls into the club. The chemistry is instantaneous, and a mountain of PHL regulations can’t keep them apart. After all, it’s just a hookup.

And then, another hookup. And then, a summer getaway that’s just enough time and privacy for them to get in way over their heads. When the hockey season starts up again, they walk away...but they can’t stay away.

Anthony and Brad value their careers way too much to be this reckless, but they’ve both been alone for way too long to ignore these feelings. Sooner or later, though, something has to give, and one of them is going to have to choose between the man he loves and the sport he lives for.

Shot on Goal, book three of the Pucks & Rainbows series, is approximately 100,000 words and can be listened to as a stand-alone.

Series is enjoyable but...

I have enjoyed the series for the most part. I wish there was more hockey. And, dare I say, less sex scenes. Since Rebound (book 1), the sex scenes have been a bit much...long! *shrug*

Shot On Goal was enjoyable but that Canadian accent for Spencer? Abhorrent. This book is best enjoyed when read yourself.

Ditch the horrible accent!

I started this book and had to stop…and I wanted to hear the story.

The accent just made my skin crawl. It sounds part Scottish with some Irish. Certainly not Canadian. I grew up two hours from the border and never heard anything like this. Technically …. It’s the second half of the diphthongs which are more eeee than uuuuu in Canadian English. Canadians also use a very American RRRR. OK I’m a linguist…

Accents are an issue…. As in the tattoo series… where one of the characters has a wandering Bronx Queens Staten Island Long Island Great Lakes accent and the accent isn’t consistent and bleeds between characters.

If you can’t do an accent well, just read it in American English.

And, I have to agree with other comments. I think Witt is a great storyteller and I love the themes and characters, but in some books the sex scenes are so long and so boring and repetitive that I keep my thumb on the +15 second icon because I can’t wait to hear how the story progresses.

Book one in this series was perfect. Great story with a great balance of sex scenes that were logically and elegantly integrated.

Book two was War & Peace. OMG. Fantastic story and thank you for addressing triads! But could have been told in ten fewer chapters…and with better accents.

This book… I think I’ll buy the kindle version and read it. I’m invested in the characters but I can’t deal with the performance.

Narration issues

Coach Caruso sounds like Pete Postlethwaite as Kobayashi in The Usual Suspects (great movie by the way), but terrible narration by a usually great narrator doing an "Irish" accent (I think?). Chose the book because of the fine narrators, but this was so awful I couldn't get into the story even a little bit. Didn't get to enjoy Mr Russo, who is one of my all time favs. DISAPPOINTING

Disappointing.

Glad I read this before listening to the audio, I might not have finished otherwise.
I usually love Michael Ferraiuolo's narration but the accent he used was off putting. He sounded like a Spanish leprechaun with a bad speech impediment and no teeth! I wondered if he was going to keep it up for the entire book, and unfortunately he did. Nick Russo was great as usual.

One of those perfect m/m sports romances!

After winning the grand finals, Vancouver Narwhals’ goalie Brad Spencer is looking for company to celebrate while Head Coach of the New York Krakens Anthony Caruso is looking for company to commiserate his loss. What should be one forbidden night turns into a deep, abiding affection that could jeopardise both their careers. I loved this third novel in the the Pucks & Rainbows series - there was lots of game play, a strong, fascinating secondary plot about a rogue team, and a satisfying relationship between two great MCs - perfect in every way. But, the audiobook (face palm!) … let’s just say Michael Ferraiuolo (as Brad) has an ‘interesting’ Canadian accent. He really did sound like an Irish-Norwegian grandfather (as another reviewer hilariously noted). I really don’t understand the creative choices here. Nick J Russo (who voiced the much older coach) has a much younger sounding voice than Michael, so it would have made more sense for him to voice Brad given the age gap. It was all very distracting but didn’t spoil the book.

Great series!

I really enjoyed this series. I loved that they tied together two well between books and the characters were well written. Plus very steamy!
My only judgement was the narrator of Brad’s character doing a bit of weird Irish/Canadian accent. Being able to tell the characters apart was done well but the accent seems a bit odd

Wonderful story

I loved this book, story line was amazing, sexy , loving and beautiful- but ... the narration of Brad was awful, distracted and annoyed me throughout!
He sounded like an Irish/ Norwegian grandfather .
I have lots of Canadian relatives- they DONT sound like this , please , for the enjoyment of your listeners, take more care in your selection of narrators.

Hard to listen to

Enjoyed the book. Would’ve enjoyed the narration if the Canadian voice/accent didn’t sound so weird. Sounded more like an older man with a Irish crossed with Canadian accent.
