    I really connected with this main character. I'm totally with her on not wanting to accept what "my league" is. It sucks, but maybe I have to. I know unlike Lindy, I'll never be lucky enough to have a hot hockey player turn out to be the guy I meet and fall in love with, and who falls in love back with me. But enough about me, let's talk about how good this story was. It was a page-turner. I really liked both characters, they were just real, and while I totally connected with Lindy, Victor was a bit of a mystery, but a good guy, even with how his life had been and the way he felt about women to start. There was a death of a side character what seemed really early in the story, and not one I would have seen coming. But that character's back story ended up being an integral part towards the end, that I see how the author tied it all together. I really like that we were able to get our two main characters falling in love enough before the end that the final obstacle or issue of the book was Victor's secret/past issue coming up to be faced. I liked that it wasn't some kind of wrench in their relationship. In some romances that just seems like how the author adds that last bit of drama, and I actually like it more like this book when it happens. I really enjoyed this one, and hope to go back and read the others in the series as well.

    5 Victor and Lindy Stars

    When the hotshot hockey player falls for the (extra)ordinary girl.

    This is definitely my favourite book in this series so far.

    Lindy is a loyal, quirky . down to earth hockey fan who works at the concessions stalls in the arena where the Chicago Blaze play. For years , the unattainable hockey forward , Victor Lane has been her crush.

    One night they meet by accident - this has to be of the best ways I have seen a H/h meet- and Victor likes Lindy but he totally friend zones her.

    But slowly Victor starts to see all the good in Lindy and the girl he wanted as a friend becomes so much more.

    I really enjoyed watching their relationship develop. This is not an insta love. The character development was really well done. There is quite a lot going on in the background too but it never detracts from the main love story.

    As a Hero , Victor ticks pretty much all the boxes. Seeing him fall for Lindy was like Kindle catnip. I was in my element.

    Lindy is in my Heroines Hall of Fame - she is so beautifully written and I loved her from the very start - yes, she's quiet but she is so strong and is in no way a pushover. I felt Victor was the perfect man for our girl.

    HEA? Yes

    Cheating? No

    Triggers? Child abuse.

    Victor is a slump, one that could put him back on the second or third line. Trying to refocus his head and his game Victor starts putting all of himself into extra practices, but a painful childhood secret keeps throwing up roadblocks. Unable to help stop this, Victor has no choice but it reach out and hope the justice system can do its job. Victors game starts to turn thanks to some advice given to him by an arena employee. Becoming fast friends with Lindy, Victor quickly realizes his feelings are on the fast track to love.

    Lindy has a very loving yet unconventional life right now, its just her, her dad and hers dads best friends. She has grown up knowing sports and taking active role in cheering on her favorite teams. Lindy works in the arena where the Chicago Blaze player Victor is struggling to get his game back on track. Unable to resist she gives him some advice and watches him bounce back to his former self. Lindy never imagines that someday her crush would be falling in love with her.

    I love this novel for so many reasons!!! Victor is so down to earth, kind, caring, and yet haunted by his childhood. He continually reaches out to Lindy while trying to be a friend and finally caves to the pull of love. He enjoys spending time with her and her father, quickly making himself part of the fold. Lindy is your average, everyday best friend; pulling double shifts without complaint because it means extra cash, dealing with the jerk boss because she can’t imagine working somewhere else without her best friend. Victor and Lindy have a spark right from the start, the tension can easily be felt and you know the romance and sweet. I couldn’t help but have a satisfied smile when Victor finally realizes he’s in love, and the sweet feeling of relief when they are able to move past his childhood and focus on the future. Ms. Rothert pulled all the right strings, she has me laughing, smiling, crying and angered, she kept me up late turning pages, I could not fall asleep without knowing how Victor and Lindy found their happily-ever-after. I will be certain to grab a copy of the next Chicago Blaze novel, she’s reignited my love for a hockey romance!

    A sweet, heart-warming, squeal-worthy, yet absolutely gut-wrenching, addicting read has the emotions of this reader vying for attention as the after-affects of this new read vary between greatly stunned to a desperate needy state of warmed loving goo that teeter back and forth as a result of a recent read of a particular hockey team once again..   

      WHOOP!  WHOOP! 

     

      This is what it feels like when I read a new story from one of my most favorite tropes..Hockey!  Pure excitement fueled by high-levels of adrenaline..YES!! 

       

    For this, I may have screamed just a wee bit upon discovering the next release from the

    was due to come out because each of my reads from this series has been a great one.. 

      Victor..oh sweetheart Victor..I have waited not-so-patiently, ever since the first book of the series, to read about this mysterious yet very intriguing character.  And, boy, it has not been easy to wait as there have been tiny snippets throughout the previous books as to the character's great potentiality.  But..BUT...once his story presented itself, it's overall storyline was so incredibly mind-blowing and beautiful and one of those that had me needing to squeeeze hug not only Victor but also sooo many other characters of this story.     

     

    , by Brenda Rothert, was quite the read.  This friends-to-lovers story was such an endearingly heart-warming read that I actually didn't mind it's slow pace and slight steam.  But, one thing I can attest to are the shocking blast-in-the-face kind-of-moments that are typically rare for this reader and for this are generally avoided whenever possible.  This story has

    that were beyond shocking that blindsided this reader like a quickly moving intermittent and painful storm.  Moments filled with childhood abuse and illness, death, and, extortion were severely difficult to read.   

      I loved the overall theme of this story.  Victor, is a strong, gorgeous and mighty hockey player on the exterior.  But, on the interior, a deeply hidden tortured individual as he is a product of an indescribable childhood filled with pain, isolation, and abuse.  He is someone who, understandably, has spent his life looking for some sort of validation that he is actually worth more than what he had experienced.  In his quest for that security blanket kind of love, comfort, and success, he runs into Lindy.  As a walking encyclopedia of hockey knowledge, this hard-working, multi-talented, humble, kind concession stand worker, Lindy turns into this Florence Nightingale of warmed-comfort for Victor just at the right time, as the beginning of the end for him, in more ways than one, was quickly approaching.  As discussions at the rink turn into dinner and movies, as both seemingly different individuals begin to unearth actual similarities, quiet insecurities and hidden fears turn into a strengthening loving bond for them both..   

      Throughout this story, there were plentiful cameos from characters from previous books, and, it was no surprise how much I continue to squishy-love the main and secondary characters from this series.  They are all wonderfully realistic and unique that it is super easy to quickly become addicted to their lives as well.     

    Therefore, like a frigid blast to the face during a blizzard, as I read through this story, full of so many sub-plots, some that were massive and heart-breakingly brutal, it was difficult for this reader to completely understand the purpose of some of them and their connection to the main plot as that which was indicated was slight and limited.  With a need for more depth and development to some of the sub-plots as well as the actual main plot, a true connection between the main characters as well as an overall storyline connection would be more clear.  It is also in this reader's opinion that to have the actual moments described in detail rather than glanced over would be beneficial for that overall well-rounded connection between the characters and the actual storyline as well.        

    Despite the shocked confusion of this storyline, in the end, it was truly an intrinsically beautiful, gripping, and, heart-warming story.  There were so many uplifting and encouraging security-blanket type-of-support, that these loving times had me gushing all over my kindle.  I adore the main characters from this series and am glad to have read more of their hockey world..:)

    Some people might think that a successful professional NHL player may have a lot to be happy about. Yes, money and fame changes things but it isn’t a magic wand that transforms everything in your life. Victor knows he is lucky to be doing something he loves and being paid well for it. He was not born into a life like he is living now, in fact it was the complete opposite.

    Some people might think that a successful professional NHL player may have a lot to be happy about. Yes, money and fame changes things but it isn’t a magic wand that transforms everything in your life. Victor knows he is lucky to be doing something he loves and being paid well for it. He was not born into a life like he is living now, in fact it was the complete opposite.

    Victor is going through a bit of a rough patch in his career, he’s struggling with his game and getting a lot of flack for it. Usually he would drown his sorrows at a bar, get naked with a willing puck bunny and forget his problems but that formula doesn’t seem to be working for him anymore. He needs to go back to the good habits he started his career with and reset, focus in the game and not get distracted by other things in his life.

    Lindy works at the concession stand at the arena, the home base for the Blaze. Ever since she was a teenager she has had a crush on Victor Lane. In fact, she had his poster on her bedroom wall for four years and his lips on it are worn through from the many times she kissed him. She has been a fan of the NHL since she was young and is very passionate about her favourite team but most of her devotion is set aside for Victor.

    One night, late at the rink she unexpectedly comes face to face with Victor in the flesh. They enjoy an easy conversation yet it is an encounter that will have a lasting impact on both of them. In fact, it is the beginning of a sweet friendship between them. Victor has never really had any sort of friendship with a woman he is not sleeping with and he loves how easy it is to be himself around Lindy.

    The more time they spend together, the deeper their connection becomes. These two are falling for each other and nothing has ever felt so right. Victor knows that if he truly wants to go all in he needs to completely open up to the woman who is quickly becoming so much more than he could have anticipated.

    This wasn’t a very long story but it has a lot packed into it and it was so damn sweet. Loved this latest addition to the Chicago Blaze series.

    So hot hockey star Victor is losing his edge. A chance meeting with concession worker Lindy has him back on form and an unlikely friendship develops.

    This is a cinderella storyline. Lindy is the lowly, down-trodden staff member who impresses Victor with her hockey knowledge and passion. It’s a trophe which I really enjoy. I love a heroine who properly enjoys hockey and knows her stuff. I liked Lindy’s dad and their relationship. It was really sweet.

    Why only three stars?

    This was a sweet tale but missed the mark for me personally. It was a bit too sweet. Lindy was 23 and had never been on a date, never kissed a boy, never been asked out. This struck me as a bit unreal.

    Victor just wants to be friends for a large portion of the book which meant no hot bits until over 60% of the way through. Then it all felt a bit PG. it just wasn’t hot. I was gutted that the author kind of rushed through the beginning of Lindsy’s sexual awakening.

    The h’s first ever orgasm is mentioned in passing. IN PASSING! you wait 23 years for it and it’s mentioned like you just went to Target for some shopping!

    This book could been so much better to my mind. It just never quite engaged me.
