Hot Ticket (New York Blades #4.5)
Readers score their own hot tickets to Deirdre Martin's Same Rink, Next Year; Julia London's Lucky Charm; Annette Blair's You Can't Steal First; and Geri Buckley's Can't Catch This.
Price was a big superstitious baby ball player who conveniently blamed his slump on everyone but himself. Kelly is a self absorbed mean girl who uses someone's misfortune to her advantage and feels no remorse twisting something one says to another meaning all together. How they ended up together, I can't imagine because they're obviously toxic to each other.

The superstition thing was seriously dorky but I really liked this story. T ...more
About the ones I liked:
Lucky Charm was cute, if a little unrealistic (even for a sports-romance). Loved Parker and Kelly as individuals and as a couple. I also enjoyed that, in this particular story, saying "I Love You" or even just proving that they loved each other didn't solve their problems.
Same Rink Next Year had a great concept. Again, really liked th ...more

The drool-worthy stud on the cover is the best, hottest thing about this book!
While the story was about a hockey player, it was in no way related to the NY Blades. David did not play for the Blades and the story was set in Chicago. So, I did not see how it fit at all into the NY Blades series. It would have been easy to make it fit nicely into the series by either making him a Blades player or by setting the book in NY and having ...more
Tierney and David.
A standing date between the two whenever David was in town. A blizzard changed those plans.
Both characters were likable. (Wow, I think this might have been the first female in the last 5 or so reviews that I've actually liked??)
I think Ms Martin could have easily made this an actual Blades short story instead of being just a Hockey story (of which the ...more
Can't Catch This was meh. Josh was kinda cocky, but not in a way I liked. I understand he was busy with his business, but he kept running out on her....hence the title.
You Can't Steal First was also meh. There was just something about it that made this very difficult to read.
Same Rink, Next Year was WONDERFUL! I am now in the process of trying to ...more
This was such a cute read. Very fast of course but still cute. I loved that there wasn't an epiphany of oh I Love you and that you were left hoping things would work but not really sure. It had a very realistic feel to it and the writing was right up there with the others, in this series. I'm defi ...more
Kinda cute, I guess...but aside from David being a hockey player, what does this story have to do with the New York Blades? Will David and Tierney show up in future books in the series?
