Shane Masters has it all: a promising career with the Baltimore Banners, a big house, fast cars, financial security, and—up until a month ago—the woman of his dreams. Now he's floundering, with no idea what he did wrong and no idea how to win her back. To make matters worse, her brother—Shane's former best friend—shows up and decides to get involved.

I received a free copy through L. Woods PR in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.

3.5 stars — I was really excited about this book after reading the prequel story “Christmas Interference” in the Hockey Holidays anthology. I experienced a lot of feels in that short story, and I connected with both Shane and Chloe. But the Shane and Chloe at the end of that story were a LONG WAYS OFF the Shane and Chloe we see in this story. In the end this on

5 star Review Fighting to Score ( Baltimore Banners #12) by Lisa B Kamps
What a great hokey romance. From start to finish I was riveted and couldn’t put this book down. This is Shane Masters and Chloe Hunter’s story which began in Christmas Interference. However, I have not read the book where these two began and I had no trouble following this one at all.
Shane, Chloe and Chloe’s twin brother Wyatt (also Shane’s ex best friend) have a past full of friendship, love and tragedy together. In fact th

Fighting To Score by Lisa B. Kamps is the full story of Shane & Chloe who we met in Christmas Interference, but can still be enjoyed as a standalone if you wish. This angst filled tale brings us on a journey of second chances after years apart and pain that seems to linger under the surface. The two characters are scared to rock the boat and move past their pain that they just hold status quo while trying to make things work. This story brought up emotions in me ~ at times I wanted to smack ...more

Figuring out the heart is much easier when you have your head on straight. Fighting to Score is about listening to your head without drowning out your heart. For Shane and Chloe, young love has become adult confusion. What once felt perfect is quickly becoming a mess. Can two broken hearts find their way back to becoming one? Kamps puts it all on the line and scores a goal.
Guilt over the past weighs heavily on a couple hoping to start over as an accident from years ago tore apart a friendship and a burgeoning romance. Brought back together after five years apart theirs is an angst-fueled tale, full of frustrating moments that had me wanting to smack both of the main leads a time or two. With its story set amidst the backdrop of hockey, everything soon evolves into winning and losing and is a reason to root this couple on as they try to put the past behind them to ...more

Shane Masters' life is great, he's a pro hockey player, financially set, and until a month ago, thought he had the woman that he's always loved. However, for whatever reason, she's ghosted him, and he has no clue what he did wrong. And it that's not enough chaos, his former best friend/her twin brother, Wyatt, shows up at his house to stick his nose into their business. Chloe Hunter has never stopped loving Shane, but after deciding to give them another chance, and actually flying out to spend t ...more

A sweet and touching story about healing

Book 12 in the Baltimore Banners series, I hadn’t read any of the previous books in the series but I did read Christmas Interference in Hockey Holidays, one of my favorites from the anthology. My only regret was that Christmas Interference wasn’t longer, but as it turns out, it was a prequel for this story. Note I thought this book worked well as a standalone, and I would have enjoyed it even if I hadn’t read the prequel; in fact, while Christmas Interfer

Having just recently read Christmas Interference which introduces Shane, Chloe and Wyatt, I was pleased that Fighting to Score soon follows!

Shane and Chloe have a history together. That history started before he became the hockey star he is today. While he sees nothing wrong in picking up right where he and Chloe ended in Christmas Interference, (where he and Chloe reconnect after five years), Chloe is surprised by the man he has become since turning pro after spending time with him in Baltimore

After reading Christmas Interference I had to read this book. Boy was I glad I did. I loved every minute of Shane and Chloe's story. I've not had the pleasure of reading any of Lisa B. Kamps other books, but I had no problem jumping right in with this story. I think even if I hadn't read Christmas Interference I wouldn't have had an issue, but I needed to know more about these two from that book. Chloe and Shane has a past. One that makes Chloe no

Fighting to Score may be book 12 in the Baltimore Banners Series but that doesn’t mean it can’t be read as a stand-alone, I know this because I’m playing catch up with this great series and at this time I haven’t read every book but I still loved Shane and Chloe’s story. This book was so much more than just a romance it was a journey, it was a story about forgiveness, letting go of the past and its certainly second chance romance at its best.

This book is the continuation of Shane and Chloe story from Christmas Interference. Let me just say this book was incredible. This book just blew me away. Lisa B. Kamps did such a great job writing this book. This story was so much more then a romance story. It was a story about forgiveness. Even though Shane and Chloe loved each other so much the past they share keeps coming between them. Shane cannot forgive himself for what happened and Chloe feels like Shane abandoned her.

Chloe and Shane haven't seen eachother in 5 years since shane left without saying a word due to the guilt he felt in the aftermath of a car accident they were in.
Fast forward 5 years and after a brief fling at Christmas (I haven't read Christmas interference. The book that introduced other readers to Shane and Chloe, but don't feel like I missed out by not reading it) Chloe is now the one to go off the radar leaving Shane to think she's dumped him without a word.

Worth fighting for...

After the Christmas novella about Shane and Chloe reconnecting, I was looking forward to the continuation of their story.

Shane and Chloe have a lot of baggage to sort through if they are ever to get past their teenage relationship and turn it into a long lasting adult commitment. Chloe is understandably hesitant, but she has only been existing, with her life on hold and she really needs to give herself a shake. At the same time, Shane finally has to face his demons and talk

Author Kamps did an awesome job with the male point of view. I was so very drawn to him and the anguish he carried. Most would have just looked at him as a wealthy hockey jock, but Shane was so in depth with his past, career and his generous heart too. He was so much more than even

Fighting to Score is a fantastic hockey romance! It’s is the continuing story about Shane and Chloe that all started in Christmas Interference.
Again, Lisa B. Kamps has brought us characters that we can’t help but love and root for to find their way to their happily ever after.
Shane, Chloe and Wyatt, Chloe’s twin brother have a long history filled with friendship, love and tragedy. Now, five years later they are all finding a way to reconnect and put the past behind them and let go of the guilt

I am a diehard Lisa B Kamps fan and have read all the Banners and Bombers books, but the ARC copy of Fighting to Score disappointed.

Firstly, Christmas Interference is not a novella, it is merely the first couple of chapters cut from Fighting to Score and published separately- reading one title without the other will leave paying customers frustrated and with huge plotline gaps.

I simply could not to connect to Chloe, instead of admiring her for everything she's gone through, she just comes acro

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. That’s not a problem because this is another great book by Lisa. Her ability to put suspense in a romance never ceases to amaze me. You do not have to read the short story, Christmas Interference, prior to reading this book, but I highly encourage it. It will give you a better understanding of events mentioned in Fighting To Score.

The past and regrets always seem to go together, but when you add what-ifs and 5 years, it adds up to

This is book #12, in the Baltimore Banners series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For complete understanding of the series, and to avoid spoilers also, I recommend reading this series in order.

Chloe is running scared. She got together over the holidays with the love of her life. Can she trust him not to break her heart, again?

Shane has always been in love with just one woman. He thinks all is well after they reconnect over Christmas. Then she disappears again. Is it possible to fix

Lisa B. Kamps triumphs with FIGHTING TO SCORE, the twelfth book in the Baltimore Banners series. I was excited that LISA B. Kamps continued Shane Masters’ and Chloe Hunter‘s story. She wrote their prequel in book 11.5, CHRISTMAS INTERFERENCE, which was originally released in the HOCKEY HOLIDAYS Anthology.

Shane and Chloe have a lot of history. Including a car accident that altered their lives forever. Five years have passed, and Shane and Chloe were reunited in book 11.5 CHRISTMAS INTERFERENCE.

First of all I have to say if you didn't read the Christmas short Christmas Interference stop and go back and read it. I'll admit I didn't, nor did I really want to. While you don't have to read it, you might get a better feel on this story if you do. With that being sad, I enjoyed this book. I'll be up front and admit that I wasn't a very big fan of Chloe though. She knew she loved Shane but she couldn't figure out completely what was making her freak out. She just kept being evasive and either ...more

After I finished Christmas Interference, I was ready to get to this book which was the rest of the story for Shane and Chloe. As an added bonus, Lisa continues the story of Wyatt in much more detail than I expected. His story became a second story line of its own in this book. This is another great addition to the Banners Series. Chloe, Shane, and Wyatt grew up together but were torn apart by a tragedy none of them ever dealt with. After five years, this is the story of forgiveness and moving on ...more

I was first introduced to Shane, Chloe & Wyatt in the novella Christmas Interference in the Hockey Holidays Anthology. Thankfully we didn't have to wait too long between stories.
It took me a while to warm up to Chloe. Her reasonings didn't seem to make sense to me at all. Luckily Shane was a man that could only see Chloe, and fought for them to be together.
But I have to say it was Wyatt that stole the show for me. The way he evolved from the novella to this story was beautiful to read. And I

I have to say that I loved this as I love all of Lisa's books. I have to say that there were times when I wanted to tell Shane to get over his guilt in regards to the accident that happened when he, Chloe and Wyatt (Chloe's twin) we just teenagers but also understood his guilt. While Chloe had guts in the novella Christmas Interference by inviting Shane to Christmas after so many years, it seemed to disappear here but this was also a great example that no one is perfect.

I really didn't care for this book because I REALLY hated the female main character! She was whiny, temperamental and wishy washy which made it really hard for me to like the book☹


Shane hasn't seen or heard from his girlfriend in over a month and that's why her brother/his best friend Wyatt has shown up at Shane's door looking for her.

On the outside Shane appears to have it all the successful hockey career, wealth and the celebrity status however on the inside he has never healed from an event in his past five years ago. This is part of the reason that he has lost the only woman he has ever loved. He is determined to get her back but before he can do that, he must make peace with his past.

I absolutely loved this book from the first page to the last with captivating characters and a well-crafted story that had me going through the entire gamut of emotions. I loved the chemistry and touching second-chance romance between Banners hockey player Shane Masters and Chloe Hunter, his hometown sweetheart.

Fighting to Score is a must-read for fans of this genre with hot action on and off the ice. Ms. Kamps knocked my socks off with this book and I look forward to reading more from this tale

4 1/2 stars. I was so happy to finally get the rest of Shane and Chloe's story after that teaser in Christmas Interference. Things certainly did not go as I hoped they would have from there though, that is for sure. Seems like a lot of communication breakdown between the two of them has kept them from finding their HEA. But they have another chance now, thanks to some interference from a very unlikely person. Even with that help, things definitely are not as smooth as you would hope but don't gi ...more

This book could be a standalone, but you do get a whole lot of the back story and emotions if you read the short story Christmas Interference that was in the Hockey Holidays anthology. I happened to read that so I knew the back story. Everything you need to know is told in Fighting to Score, you just are not in the dark for long about the back story if you have read the short story.
I love this couple and I cheered so hard for when they got together! I was so happy that Wyatt got a HEA too. That
