A win-win negotiation?

Truman "Tru" Jelinek's life is pretty much off the rails. With his professional hockey career on thin ice, and his personal life falling apart, he's ready to implement some serious changes. Helping Jenny Martin--the only girl he's ever loved--make her dreams a reality is a good place to start.

There's just one problem: Jenny doesn't want his help. She

Back in January I got on a Hockey Romance kick and one of my favorite discoveries was Anna Sugden's A Perfect Distraction! I anxiously awaited the July release of book two, A Perfect Trade - and I was not disappointed!

We got to know Tru and Jenny in book 1, as Bad-Boy's closest friend and the team's puck bunny of choice. I'll be honest, I was nervous about getting to know Jenny better. Puck Bunny's have sort of a low standing in my social world (as in, I can't imagine being one and don't have a

4 of 5 Stars

Professional hockey player, Truman (Tru) Jelinek, life has been on a downward spiral. He decides to help the one person he ever loved, Jenny Martin, obtain a dream. However, Jenny is not sure if she can forgive him for the mistake he made in their past.

I love Tru. He’s a good guy and wants to take care of the people he cares about to a fault. He seems to bend over backwards to make amends to Jenny. I felt horrible for him that everything seemed to go wrong for him at once. He means

This book didn't work for me on so many levels I'm not really sure where to start.

I guess the first thing is, I found the hockey theme completely impenetrable. I don't follow it, it's not played at all in my country and I have very little interest in sports, so I found much of the play jargon and inside knowledge complete gibberish, especially the politics and workings of drafting and trading players. I get that it's vitally important to the storyline, and obviously Sugden loves it so I can't b

"I'm sorry, I thought I was doing the right thing."
Tru Jelineck has said that so often it should be tattooed on his forehead. Par for the course for a man who thinks he knows what is best for everyone in his life. The trouble is, while his intentions are good, his manner and actions are often overbearing, unwelcomed and sometimes downright dangerous due to the consequences issuing from those actions.
Jenny Martin has first hand experience with Tru's "helpfulness". When they were teenagers and in

Après un premier tome plutôt réussi, voici donc la suite de la série consacrée aux New Jersey Ice Cats.
Les personnages principaux ne nous sont pas inconnus, en effet, on retrouve Tru, un co-équipier de Jake (héros du T1) et Jenny (meilleure amie de Maggie, héroine du T1).
Jenny est la reine des "puck bunnies", autrement dit une fille qui fréquente assidûment les joueurs de l'équipe, une sorte de groupie. Cependant elle est respectée par les joueurs et ses analyses en matière de jeu et

"A Perfect Trade offers a realistic treatment of modern-day life and romance in spite of the fact that a famous hockey player is involved. The story is quite believable, as are the characters" (RT Book Reviews). 4 stars
Jennifer Schultheis
I really enjoyed A Perfect Trade. This book was well-written and grabbed my attention right from the start. This was one story that I didn't want to end. It made me wish I read at a slower pace, so I would still be absorbed in Anna Sugden's characters. I loved the idea of the heroine being the queen of "puck bunnies", that being said don't judge her too harshly, she has a story and has reasons for why she does certain things. I really enjoyed Jenny as a heroine and her and Tru definitely made me ...more
