This was a cute little romance between a massage therapist (Emily) who's come home to tiny Elk Crossing, Idaho for her cousin's big family wedding, and a cop (Jonah) who's entered a hockey tournament in the same town. Through a series of somewhat unbelievable and often humorous circumstances (bedbugs!), they end up having to share the same hotel room. I know it all sounds a bit predictable, because you know what's bound to happen when you put two single, attractive people in the same hotel room...more

***READER'S NOTE***
The blurb sucks by the way, having (almost) nothing to do with the story.
***END OF READER'S NOTE***


Emily is in Elk Crossing, Idaho, her home town, as a bridesmaid for her cousin's wedding. Jonah, a Portland cop, is in Elk Crossing to participate in the Over-Thirties-Hockey Tournament

A case of bed bugs and absolutely no vacancies thanks to the hockey tournament, forces them to share the last room available in the Elk Crossing Lodge. And an unfortunate incident of the wrong pers...more

4 ½ stars. Fun, enjoyable romance. I was chuckling several times. Characters and plot worked well. Nothing annoyed me.

STORY BRIEF:
Emily is a health center massage therapist who is in town for her cousin’s wedding. Her relatives take advantage of her by asking her to run errands, do wedding chores, etc. She’s staying in a hotel to avoid the additional stress of staying with family members. Jonah is a detective who plays in an ice hockey league for guys over 30. He’s in town for several days for a...more

Ok, as a "Blaze" book it was as good as the rest, but since hockey is key to the plot you would think the author would have at least looked up a few things about the game. All the hockey talk was wrong and stupid.

1. hockey equipment is not called a "uniform"
2. hockey players do not carry around two pair of skates unless you are in the NHL
3. hockey skates do not have liners you remove
4. no one plays hockey only for the win or the exercise. they play for the love of the game
5. you cannot swim in f...more

What a fun story. I really enjoyed this. I knew I'd like Jonah when he was described as having more hair than necessary and then referred to as "hairy guy." LOL Jonah and Emily are fun and likable. No misunderstandings, no TSTL moments, no separation. Oh and they actually talk! Emily felt real and I felt like she was someone I could be friends with. She didn't feel like an untouchable heroine. Jonah, while he's the hero and a cop, is not an unrealistic alpha male. He, too, felt like any man. I t...more

I'm finding that the more I like a book, the quicker I gobble it up. Seems like an obvious cause/effect, but it really hit home when I finished Power Play in THREE HOURS!

The only things that stood out more than the steamy bedroom scenes were the unexpected and hilarious laugh-til-you-cry scenes.It's been a while since I've literally laughed out loud when reading a book and there were multiple moments where I not only smiled and giggled, but I bellowed out full-on laughs during this book.

Good-g...more

TBR Challenge 2011- Power Play has been on my wish list for over 6 months. June Category: Contemporary

3.5*

Entertaining and humorous story with very likeable characters. The opening scene made me laugh, and set the tone for the entire book. The characters were great, but not perfect. The attraction was there, but we didn't have to read about tingling body parts every paragraph. There were several sub-plots and numerous characters that the author wove into the story quite smoothly.

The book was sex...more

*A LITTLE BIT OF SPOILERS*


This book was really short I finished it in less than a day. Some parts were pretty funny I thought. I give it 3 stars because the length of the book (I don't really read short books) and because it just wasn't that great. Yeah there were funny parts but some things about it irritated me.
1. I hate reading in third person.
2. She should have done some research on hockey.
3. And involved hockey a little more. (To me anyways)
4. Her parents tried to hook her up with her COU...more

An appealing heroine, and hero who isn't a douchecanoe, an interesting premise and...a plot that beggars belief. And I understand that there's some amount of belief-suspension necessary to read a Blaze, but I didn't find the big plot twist near the end well executed.

Also, adding in a 3rd, minor character's POV 140 pages into a 200-page book kind of threw me for a loop. And despite having a heavily hirsute hero, the guy on the cover is smooth-chested. Eh.

Rating: 4 stars –this book was quite refreshing and i finished the book in a couple of hours. story was the usual but i wished the author gave emily the chance to say no to her family for once and for her family to understand that just because she’s single does not mean she gets to do all the errands .
Dawn ♥ romance
Enjoyable book with good plot, plenty of action, humor, steamy scenes, and exciting ending. Hotel bedbugs cause massage therapist Emily, in town for family wedding, to get accidentally double booked in hotel room with cop Jonah, in town for hockey tournament.

Another hilarious and fun read from Nancy Warren. From the bedbugs to the hideous bridesmaid dress to the smokin' hot cop/hockey player this book hit the spot. I was disappointed when it ended. I wanted more.

Rather boring despite the promise of better things to come. I'm not in my stick-to-it mood so while I suspect things will get more interesting, I'm going to give it a miss.
