4.5 out of 5 hot ice stars - Don't be intimidated by "Book 10". You can jump in here but you will most likely want to go and read about the other hot members of the Las Vegas Sidewinders. Royce is the "quiet one". Friends on the surface but intense/driven underneath. His friend and team mate Dimitri needs someone to go with his little(?) sister to a concert while they are in New York City. Little did Royce know that Dimitri's little sister is not so little any more. Tina is an adult and she has ...more

5 star Review Las Vegas Sidewinders: Royce (# 10) by Kat Mizera
This was a great hockey story which I was totally engrossed in from start to finish. Why this is my first book by Kat Mizera, I have absolutely no idea, but it will not be my last.
I loved Royce Lenahan, a professional hockey player and Kristina Papadakis (Tina), a not so traditional Greek woman whom I really gravitated too.
As Royce and Tina explore their unexpected passion and love of music, it is obvious that although there is a gr

This is the first book i've read by this author and i thoroughly enjoyed it, proving that although its book 10 in the series its not essential to read the other books first.
Royce is a bit uptight and likes everything tidy and in order after living with an artsy usually late for everything parent hes went the complete opposite way.
Tina is the opposite very arty, with no set schedule and enjoying life.
Due to Royces need for control in his life there relationship is very turbulant, in order for the

I really can’t believe I’m so late getting into the game for this series and I will certainly be reading all the books I have missed as soon as time permits. Royce hooked me from the very first page and there was no putting down until I had read the last line .....
Two opposites who happen to be very attracted to each other, is this a recipe for love or for disaster. Royce is quirky, uptight and controlling while Tina is carefree and lives her life exactly how she wants too but the chemistry is s

A mismatch made in heaven has to first make it's way through hell. Mizera keeps it naughty with an enchanting tale of opposites and the people who love them. Royce and Tina look at the world differently. Royce needs order to help him unwind and Tina needs chaos to help her feel alive. When their two worlds meet it's a personality clash with explosive results. Can the planner and the free spirit survive the drama of falling in love? Mizera never ceases to tempt with humor and heart. A wickedly se ...more

Love hockey romance? Love brother's best friend romance? If you answered yes to even one of those then this is a book for you. Royce is an amazing read. I love how Kat Mizera pulls you into the hockey world like no other. Royce is supper uptight and has a few issues. But once you see past all that you will totally swoon for him. Tina is amazing and a Jackie of all trades. I love her big heart and how she just does her own thing. Royce is Tina's brothers roommate and man do the sparks fly once th ...more

I absolutely loved this book and was hooked from page one. Royce definitely was the complete opposite of Kristina (Tina). He’s so uptight and controlled while she’s a free spirit, very artsy. But they sure are attracted to each other. Loved getting updates of prior characters too,loved each book in this series. My heart ached for them, are they just too different to make things work out? I didn’t expect to cry but I was heartbroken when he messes up. Will she give him another chance? No worries, ...more

Love and hockey are the best…

The Las Vegas Sidewinders is one of my favourite sports romance series, ever! Drama is the key and that has meant tension, emotional highs and lows, and lots and lots of heat. A high bar to reach but Tina and Royce made it look effortless…

Staid and structured. Easy-going and bohemian. On the surface, Tina and Royce had little in common and two very different approaches to life. Tina worked hard toward her goals but that didn’t mean she couldn’t have fun too! And if s

Kat Mizera lights the lamp with ROYCE, the tenth book in the Las Vegas Sidewinders series. Hockey star Royce Lenahan’s best friend and teammate, Dmitri Papadakis, asked him to take his little sister, Kristina, to a rock concert. She’s not the quiet girl with glasses that he remembered. She is free-spirited, the opposite of his programmed lifestyle.

I like Tina and Royce. They have different personalities. She is artistic, free-spirited, and spontaneous. Royce is a great athlete, organized, and sc

Tina and Royce are so flaming hot together, but they are so real. They have problems like every couple; they’re human. The emotional roller coaster that this slightly kinky romance took me on, was thrilling and I didn’t want to get off.
There were moments I wanted to shake them, but I got the feeling that what was happening needed to so the two of them could truly give themselves a chance at Forever.

This is another great book in the Las Vegas Sidewinders series. Royce and Tina are complete opposites. Royce loves everything organized and complete control of his life. Tina has an artistic heart and loves to let go and enjoy life. You would've think these two would work, but they do. I fell in love with these two instantly. They helped balanced each other out. I did feel for both of them. Royce had a hard time letting go though he really needed to (I loved the conversation his dad had with him ...more

I love Royce so Much! Elizabeth @ Carolina Chic's Read

Royce and Tina.... well what do I say... I love Royce's character so much. There were times that I wanted to cry for him. He is carrying around some deep emotional damage from his upbringing that definitely overshadows his relationship with Tina. When these two are on the course for being in love.. hearts get broken and lives are changed. This is my two favorite Sidewinders book.

I loved Royce and Tina’s story. Hockey is one of my favorite sports so it automatically drew me in since Royce is a hockey player. As the story progressed I found myself intrigued and quickly turning pages wanting to find out what happens. Royce is quirky and has a lot of issues to work out. Tina is more carefree so when these two get together, sparks do fly but problems arise. Can these two work things out and be together or will they go their separate ways and be miserable? A great sports roma ...more

Royce can be an indecisive man, “because you’re gorgeous and I can’t decide if I want to ravage you again, order room service, or drag you into the shower with me.” Royce loves to shower his girl with compliments, “every time I see you in anything my ***k gets hard,” he countered..." Tina always wants to keep her man in good spirits, “are you grouchy, honey? Do you need a blow job?” I liked this book, I liked Royce.

Ten books in and Ms. Mizera still manages to keep things fresh in this sweet and sexy tale of opposites attracting set against the backdrop of hockey and the music world. Royce and Tina are both larger than life characters with a romance that takes you on a rollercoaster ride that will keep you glued to the pages. It’s a romance that at times frustrates, often pulls at the heartstrings, but ultimately satisfies by putting a smile on reader’s faces.

Engaging and relatable characters

Book 10 in the series, I hadn’t read this author before recently reading Dmitri's Christmas Angel in the Hockey Holidays anthology. It was a great story and I immediately added the Las Vegas Sidewinders to my TBR, so I was happy to see this new book coming out. While reading that story did help prove some background here, I feel this book works well read as a standalone as I certainly didn’t feel I was missing out on anything by not reading the earlier books in

A great friends to lovers, opposites attract hockey romance. Royce is the 10th book in the Sidewinders series by Kat Mizera. It can be read as a standalone, but as someone who has read every book in the series, I do recommend you read the rest. Royce just like every book in the series is captivating, intense, and sensual!

ROYCE is book 10 in the Las Vegas Sidewinders series. There's several connected characters but this is easily a book that can be read as a standalone.

Royce Lenahan is a six year veteran of the Sidewinders hockey team. He's worked really hard to build his dream, regardless of his less than normal childhood. When his best friend, Dmitri, asks him to take his baby sister to a rock concert, Royce is completely unprepared for the whirlwind that is Kristina "Tina" Papadakis.

It's hard to believe this is the tenth book in the Sidewinders series! Each story just keeps getting better and better!!

Kat Mizera has become one of those must-read authors for me. Whether it's this series or one of her spin-off stories, each is down-right addicting and always so dang good. Usually by the tenth book in any series, I'm a little hesitant to read because they just seem to be repetitive or I've lost interest. But oh no. Not with Kat Mizera.

This book was beyond wonderful. I did not just fall in love with Royce, I also fell in love with side characters in this story like Casey. (please write a story for her). Casey is a rock singer and the female lead in this story, Tina loves her music and so at the start of the book, Royce is asked by his teammate , roomie and bestie to take Tina to Casey's concert in NYC where she lives and he is visiting.

This is book #10, in the Las Vegas Sidewinders series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to enjoy and understand the series, I recommend reading this series in order.

Royce is a professional hockey player who likes things to be just so. What he never sees coming is the little sister of his best friend. She is all woman and he has no problem taking notice.

Kristina is a proper Greek girl, at least some of the time. Other times, she is a real rock guru and future st
