I am by no means a hockey fan, not at all. I know they have skates and pads, chase the puck and try to get a goal…. That’s all my understanding of all things hockey. That being said, this book sucked me in, even with my lack of knowledge.

Jacquelyn (Jacey) and Carter have a hard time getting over situations and it makes you want to shove them in a room until they get over themselves and the things that tear them apart. They are perfect for each other, but certain circumstances get in the way and

I was given a copy of the book by the author in return for my honest review. I was not compensated. I am not a hockey fan but I have to say I am now! Carter is yummy on a scale that I find delicious!
Jacey Vaughn is taking over her father's beloved Las Vegas Sinners hockey team and right from the get-go there are complications. Her first day in the office the captain of the team shows up for a raise. Her head coach quits and her brother pops up. FYI...I am seriously hoping the Katie has a book i

On the Fly is said to be a romance by genre and it is, but it is more than that. It is also a sports novel that shows an in-depth knowledge of the game of hockey, whether from personal experience or a lot of research we don’t know, but we do know that this author has incorporated the game and the romance into a storyline that is both entertaining and educational.

Our main characters are a young woman named Jacey ( actuallyJacqueline but her dad always called her Jacey and like most nicknames, it

I have mixed feelings about On the Fly. I enjoyed reading it and I loved Jacey and Phylnn, at least most of the time. Kenyhercz did a wonderful job of laying out the plot, developing the two main characters and creating chemistry between them. The other characters weren't well developed but with the amount of time they were actually in the book, their lack of development was just on the line of forgivable and unforgivable. I wavered back and forth between the two. Mostly I landed on forgivable b ...more

ON THE FLY is Pretty Fly!

I’ve been Internet friends with Katie Kenyhercz since we both worked together with Crimson Romance, but this is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to read her work, and boy, am I glad I did! Katie is an immensely talented author!

When I read, I like to highlight my favorite passages, only with ON THE FLY, it turned out to be the majority of the book! I told myself I needed to stop, and that lasted for a couple of pages. After that, many of the lines were so good, I

I love a good sports romance – there is just something about a big, strong man falling in love that just gets me every time. And Kenyhercz delivers a fantastic hero with Carter. There is just something sexy about a man who is comfortable enough to know how he feels and own up to it. Carter quickly realizes what he feels and is willing to take that chance on it turning into something special.

In a bit of a change, it’s actually Jacey who has a problem with the relationship. She feels it too but s

Jacey and Carter have a ton of obstacles to overcome, but their love will be worth the risk. There are personal and professional hardships for them both, but their romance could turn the rink into a pool.
I enjoyed the roller coaster these two led me through, but I still had my moments of “wtf were you thinking!?” At the characters, lol.
This was a new to me author and I look forward to reading more of this series and from her.
I’d recommend this book.

This is my first Katie Kenyhercz book and I gotta say it was good...
Books have made me an ice hockey fan. I would love to go to a real game one day.
This book made you feel like you were part of the action.
Carter and Jacey struggle as a couple with the media and the ice hockey commissioners. But they each time she pushes him away he pulls back..
A nice easy read..

Hockey and romance score in On the Fly a character-driven romance by Katie Kenyhercz.

After her father’s passing, Jacey Vaughn inherits the Las Vegas Sinners, a NHL hockey team.

I have been obsessed with Hockey Romance for the last three weeks, and when Deirdre Martin’s New York Blades series proved to be NOT about hockey (beyond the first few books) I decided I needed something different and turned to Goodreads for lists of hockey books! On The Fly appeared on several lists, so I jumped at the chance to read it. After a few duds, Katie Kenyhercz debut was a welcome change! Her romance between Carter and Jacey was easy, spicy and a nice escape from life for a few hours! ...more

Thank you to Katie Kenyhercz for reaching out for a review. I have been sitting on this one for a while, but I finally read this on Memorial Day here in the States. I had been waiting to read this one until after I had finished Graduate School and boy am I glad I did. I love hockey romances almost as much as I love watching Hockey!

Right from the start, Jacey and Carter have a bit of sexual tension between them. They shouldn't because Jacey is the owner of the team that Carter plays hockey for.

I love, love, love this book. So much, that I'll be reading it again. Not only does it have a scrumptious hockey player for the hero, my favorite sport, but I really identified with the heroine, Jacey. The poor thing was caught between a rock and a hard body.

Carter and Jacey's chemistry was delicious, the tension outstanding, and the love scenes steamy yet tasteful. Not only that, but this story was chock full of wonderful writing. I found myself reading passages aloud to my husband. That simpl

Hunky hockey players coupled with a strong and independent female lead....ummmmmm.....yes please!!! Carter aka Phlynn and Jacey are really, really great characters. Both characters are great and the story is very well written along with a good flow. This is definitely a sweet and light read. I admire that the author took on writing about a sport that isn't out there as much as others. I think that definitely worked in her advantage. As I said, the book is very well written and the dialogue is wr ...more

Kenyhercz's first novel is a romantic and comedic tour de force! What a pleasure to read, especially with its strong female characters. After years of too many weak and vulnerable women in romance novels, it's so refreshing to read about a tough woman in a man's world who still manages to be feminine. Kenyhercz's style of finding the mot juste, her amusing turn of phrase, the attention to detail in her characters and their expressions all add to the humor in the novel, which is tremendous. The s ...more

In On The Fly by Katie Kenyhercz Jacey Vaughn has just lost her father, and inherited his Vegas hockey team. She will have a hard time getting used to the rules and restrictions that everyone will be placing in front of her as the new team owner. Being a female does not help her at all since the NHL is used to having males as owners.

Carter Phlynn is trying to win the Stanley Cup, but he knows that with his current team it’s not going to be easy. Now as he faces the new team owner, who he expecte
Jacey Vaugh has inherited a new NHL team after her dad dies and becomes a rare commodity - a female team owner and GM. Carter Phlynn is the star player and captain of the team. Before long the two are developing feelings for each other, but due to the publicity they need to keep things quiet. Plus, Jacey had a bad experience with her last boyfriend and Carter is a player (both on an off the ice.) The story was interesting and fast forwarded through the entire hockey season. Carter was likeable, ...more
This was a nice start to the series. I thoroughly enjoyed the main characters of Jacey, Carter, Madden, and Nealy - especially the humor and banter of Madden. The descriptive settings and background provided substance and depth.

Jacey Vaughn, the newly inherited owner of the NHL team Las Vegas Sinners, battles the attraction right off the bat to team Captain Carter Phlynn and vice versa. Katie Kenyhercz dives into the ethical and professional conflicts of why the attraction can't evolve into mor

I seriously enjoyed reading this book, but I knew I would. For starters, I love hockey and hockey players-hubba hubba. Katie Kenyhercz had me from page one. Without giving the story away, I'd just like to say I was rooting for Carter and Jacey the entire time and my adrenaline was pumping by the time I got to the last page. I understand a lot of people were frustrated because other characters didn't seem to be as developed as the main two, but that's sort of the point. I really enjoyed Madden's ...more

On the Fly was a love story in the hockey world. Jacey took over a newly formed hockey team after he father passed away. Not only was she a female owner in a man's world she also appointed the first female head coach causing a lot of issues.

Enter Carter Phylnn, the captain of the Las Vegas Sinners. He planned to walk for more money but as soon as he met Jacey he decided to stay for the season. After the coach quit on Jacey's first day, Carter was there to help
I'm not a hockey fan, but I found this book rather interesting! It wasn't too technical, and was easy to follow, focusing on the romance between a female owner and the captain of her team, who is also her star player and face of the NHL. My only real complaint was how much it was re-iterated that they should not be falling in love. Both characters were very believable and easy to relate to, though not without their flaws. Jacey was a very likable heroine, and tough when she needed to be. While i ...more

I love Jacey & Carter. They make a great, and very cute couple. I'd never read a sports romance before this book (just not into sports really) but this was fantastic. Some scenes made me really feel like I was in the rink with the team and the cheering fans. While Carter and Jacey seem to have the deck stacked against them - the respect of the players, the league, and American fans, not to mention Mason (Jacey's brother) and his host of issues, a reporter out for blood, and the team's future ...more

This book was suggested to me by Amazon due to my love of hockey romance. I really enjoyed the story between Jacey and Carter. I wasn't sure how things would end up but there were plenty of twists and turns. I love that Katie actually included the hockey game and showed that she knows about it versus other books I've read that merely mention that the character is a hockey player. Can't wait to see what else is in store from the Sinners.

Enjoyable read, although a bit unbelievable. She is the new owner of the ice hockey team and he is the captain of the team. I cannot believe anyone in the press/public would be interested in them as a couple or even condemn them for it.

That aside it was a very pleasant read; I liked both MC's and there was enough romance and steam to satisfy me. Ending was great as well and - although you can argue it was all a bit too tidy in the end - I loved it as a romantic ending.

One of the best sports romances I've read in a long time. The relationship between Carter and Jacey felt real, and the story had me hooked from the get go. I love finding new authors to read and I look forward to continuing this series. I would definitely recommend On the Fly to any romance reader.
I absolutely totally fell in love with carter. He was compassionate, loyal and totally trustworthy. I was absorbed into the story without hesitation. I was ecstatic when Jace got her shit together she was very infuriating. At times I wanted to shake her and go wtf is the matter with you compromise. However none of that was necessary thankfully.

I played one season of roller hockey when I was fifteen--it hurt enough that I decided I liked it better as a spectator--and it's been true love ever since! My fictional team is the Las Vegas Sinners, and my real-world team is the Pittsburgh Penguins.

“Change is a good thing,” Jacey whispered as she stared at the Stanley Cup Championship plaques lining the wall. They were from the eighties and the Cleveland Rockers incarnation of the current team, but still reflected hockey success.” 0 likes
“A man stood in the doorway, solidly built and towered quite a bit over her five feet eight inches, even though she wore heels. He wore a black Las Vegas Sinners T-shirt, cargo shorts to his knees and leather flip-flops. His gelled blond spikes were styled to look unstyled and almond-shaped, hazel eyes took her in with no attempt at subtlety. A small, slashing scar at the outside corner of his left eye as well as some purple-yellow bruising under his right told her who he was. Or at least what he was. Hockey player.” 0 likes
