****4 STARS****

Unsportsmanlike Conduct was definitely a fun read! I enjoyed the banter from Kristen and Pavel. They were made for each other and Sophia Henry wrote their chemistry perfectly.

This is a story that teaches you to live life to the fullest and never take anything for granted, which we all should be doing.

This book surprised the hell out of me! Never in a million years, I was expecting it to be so deep and emotional. WELL DONE!

I absolutely loved the themes behind this romance. Kristen lives with a disease and knows that she won’t live as much as everyone else around her, she she closed herself off for love, because she feels like it wouldn’t be fair to her significant other, because she can’t do forever. I get you girl! But I’m so glad that she was able to realize that she de

Good story...started out just ok but the more I read the more I liked it. It started to flow better after the initial start. It had a unique story line with the heroine having Cystic Fibrosis. The hero had an abusive past so it wasn't all light and fun but I liked that they brought out the best in each other. This is the 4th in the series but can be read as a standalone. Despite some heavy subjects, it was more on the low end of angst. No cheating or other woman/man drama and I loved t

Sophia Henry is yet another new-to-me author that I am so happy I took a chance on. UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT is the fourth book in her Pilots Hockey series, however it was easy to read as a standalone without having read the first three books. I think it actually helped that I had not read the first three books because I was able to take Pasha at face value without the bias of his character's behavior in the previous books.

Her main characters, Pasha and Kristen were both very likeable, easy to co

This is my first Sophia Henry book, and although it is book 4 in the Pilots Hockey series, it did not affect my reading of Unsportsmanlike Conduct.

I love a sports romance, and love a good hockey hottie.

Although the man-whore-hockey-star-meets-normal-girl premise is not a new one, I did like that our leading lady Kristen is not just the "normal girl"

I loved that she was dealing with a life long illness (Cystic Fibrosis) and the struggles she and her

You guys, I think I’ve found my new favourite trope.

Hockey players. Swoon.

Unsportsmanlike Conduct is the story of Kristen, a post grad Greek on a cruise (around the Caribbean) of a lifetime…but it has a catch. It’s a Singles cruise her parents have booked her on to find a Greek husband. And when the world is your oyster, a husband definitely isn’t in your plans – especially for Kristen, whose battle with Cystic Fibrosis has her living each day like it’s her last. Until she meets Pasha – not Gree

Okay, first, I'm just gonna say.... this is my favorite book in this series. I love them all, but holy ship mates! Pasha, aka Paval Gribov, le prince of arse holes, has a heart! Who knew?!? I mean, the last book showed more of his arsed sense of humor and attitude but in Unsportsmanlike conduct you get to see a whole new Pasha, for a while.

I was excited by the fun and fresh premise of the story but unfortunately, it dragged a little at times and had a lot of predictable moments. Even though I could see some problems there, the first half of the book was entertaining - but I had trouble to finish it.


Pasha wasn’t a good hero in my opinion, I really wanted to like him but couldn’t. Kristen was nice, it was easy to relate to her insecurities and fears. Dialogue felt forced at times, they had a certain confession and moral vibe to i

I was looking to read this book on the pure fact that it mentioned hockey. I am a hockey fan. It was lacking on the hockey play or even hockey references but instead I got a really good love story with engaging characters in Kristen and Pavel aka Pasha and exotic location. There is nothing quite like literally running into the arms of a hunky man and kissing him soon afterwards to start off your vacation right. Oh, except the fact that the guy is willing to pretend to be your boyfriend. The chem ...more

This is the 4th book in the Pilots Hockey Series. For the most part, these books have been easily standalone, but this one I do think you should read book 1, Delayed Penalty.

Kristen wants to live every day like it’s her last, because honestly, it could be. But when she runs into Pavel “Pasha” Gribov, literally, she’s not prepared to be living this last week like it may be her last. With health issues she never really dreams of the future but suddenly Pasha gives her reason to believe in the future.

Pavel Gribov is a bad boy and on this singles cruise he’s prepared to be as bad as possible, until Kristen runs into him, literally. One encounte

Kristen Katsaros is determined to live her life to the max! And that doesn't mean that she is going to give into her over protective nudges and marry Spiros and pop out good, Greek children. They even send her on a singles cruise to the Caribbean., with hopes that she hooks up with Spiros on the trip.

But Kristen is determined to live her life (no matter how short), the way that she wants. Which is why, after crashing into Pasha, the hottest guy she has ever met, she pretends to be his girlfriend

The latest in the Pilots Hockey series is a little bit different from the usual hockey romance. Kristen Katsaros is on a singles cruise paid for by her parents as a graduation gift. They want her to meet a nice Greek boy and settle down. Kristen, on the other hand, wants to live life a bit and have some adventures before she thinks about anything like that. When she discovers a family friend and potential suitor on the ship she is horrified and actually running away from him when she ends up in ...more

Thanks to net galley.com for the ARC.
Great characters in this book. What a great connection they made on the cruise and how effortless their relationship grew over the course of a week. But in the real world all they needed was to be honest and open to each other. The scene they caused at the wedding reception was such a turning point in the book. You really wanted for him to reach out to her, comfort her in some way, let her know how much she meant to him but the moment was gone and so was she.

He's cocky, sexy, gorgeous, and a commitment phobe of the highest order. When he finds himself on a singles cruise, dragged along by his teammate he knows that the woman are looking for "the one" and that wasn't him. So when a beautiful woman named Kristen Katsaros is looking to fend off all the men on board and wants him to be her "fake ...more

I loved that Pasha had no filter when it came to Kristen, “I think I’d die happy if I got to be in you tonight.” I’d like to blame my comment on all the vodka..." I think Pasha appreciates the reactions Kristen has at times, "Kristen opened her eyes and bolted upright. The sheet fell, revealing her bare chest. I smiled in appreciation at the greeting." I loved this book, Pasha was a great guy and I loved bombardment.

Her parents gave her a cruise for young Greek Orthodox singles after graduation. She meets professional hockey player Pavel Gribov on the ship and feels an instant attraction to him.

For a book about a hockey player in a series about hockey players, this had surprisingly little hockey in it. I'm a hockey fan, and I like sports-themed romances of many kinds, but I didn't mind that there wasn't much about the sport in this.

Like the previous books, this book had a unique, emotional storyline that steps outside of the typical sports themed romance genre.

This is another book in Sophia Henry’s series revolving around members of a minor league hockey team in Detroit. I’ve read and enjoyed all the earlier books in the series, but I didn’t remember them that clearly so I think it would be fine to read without having read the earlier books. There are references to those characters and what happened earlier, but the reader can basically get what’s going on without having read or remembered what went on.

"Unsportsmanlike Conduct" is the 4th book in Sophia Henry's "Pilot Hockey" series and the first book I have read of hers.

I'm really glad I was introduced to this series. I like the flow of the author's writing and I really love the humor. Normally I avoid books with any kind of medical drama/issues going on. I read to escape and I simply want none of that in a book I read. That being said, I'm glad I didn't know ahead of time that this book included that as the author made it a fun read in spite

Though I love hockey stories for the hockey, I enjoy how much humanity this author puts into her stories, even though there's not a lot of hockey action. In this story, we revisit one of the unlikable side characters from early on in the series. I love seeing the softer side of a reformed bad boy. Another great aspect was that the female has a chronic illness which adds a great (though sad) element to the romance. I

This is the fourth book in the series - and I would say that you would understand references to Pasha in particular better, if you had rad the previous stories. However, it is a separate romance and could be read alone.

Whilst I found this an entertaining read, I did not like the intense detail of the cruise itself, and then the very swift passage of time once they were back. Having got used to a lot of detail per day, f
