“They call me The Mad Russian for a reason.”
—Viktor Demoskev, VEGAS CRUSH

My reputation as an Enforcer was earned one game at a time. Fighting on the ice for my team is something I take very seriously because I came to the USA to play hockey, not be a celebrity.

Unfortunately, this logic has my public image taking a beating—not that I care very much how others think of me.

Red Rocket is the third installment in the Vegas Crush series by Brit DeMille aka Raine Miller. I'm a huge fan of sports romance books in general - but the hockey ones are my absolute favorites. I've read and loved everything this fantastic and versatile author has ever written - from her amazing historicals to her famous contemporary romance series. Red Rocket was another winner by Brit DeMille. I was highly entertained by the well-paced, engaging plot and great dialogue and totally enchanted ...more

Red Rocket is book three in the Vegas Crush series and can be read as a standalone, but totally think it should be from the start, simply because the stories before this were just as amazing as this, But I have to say Viktor and Scarlett's story would have to be my favorite of the series so far.

Another fantastic read by Raine Miller aka Brit DeMille. I am loving Vegas Crush series so far.
It's only last year that I started to really get into sports romance, and this series so far has been one of

I'm a die hard Raine Miller fan for years. She's one of the most talented and versatile authors in this business. Whatever she writes turns into pure gold. No matter if it's contemporary romance, historicals or hockey romance she always manages to put me under her spell.

Having loved the previous two books in the Vegas Crush series, I couldn't wait to dive into Red Rocket. Especially after Raine gave us a hint about whom this story will be about. My excitement was frankly speaking as huge as my

Well I loved Red Rocket! Viktor and Scarlett's story was just as amazing as the other two stories in the series, a little more so I think because Scarlett's past really touched my heart.

As always, Raine wrote an entertaining and heartfelt story that kept me engrossed from the beginning to the last page. I was so invested in Viktor and Scarlett, rooting for them the whole way. Would these two unlikely people find a way to build a future together? Viktor comes across to the world as an iron

Red Rocket is book 3 in the Vegas Crush Hockey Series but like the previous books it can certainly be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone although I’m sure once you get a taste these extremely hot and caring players you will want to read the previous books.
I have to be honest and say Raine Miller is and will always be a go to author for me I love her writing and I love her characters so I was excited to get book 3 which is Viktor Demoskev and Scarlett Woods story and let me tell you it was

My review is for an ARC of Red Rocket.

AMAZING!!!!!! again Raine Miller writing as Brit Brit Demille was spectacular read, sexy and you really fall in love with the characters.
From the start I was totally swept in the hockey world and meet Viktor the Mad Russian hockey player at Crush Hockey team in Las Vegas, his accent, sexy man will captivate you from the start.
and of course we meet Scarlett (Red Rocket) beautiful PR media relations with the Crush organization. They have no-fraternization

Absolutely loved the story of Viktor and Scarlett. I connected immediately with the characters and found myself immediately hooked despite the fact that I don't understand a bit of hockey. And that is find you don't have to, to enjoy this great book. This is my favorite in the series so far. I just fell in love with both characters. Scarlett, a hard-working woman who has been through a lot in her life, a survivor and a fighter. Viktor, I could totally see his soft side when it came to Scarlett. ...more

My review is for an ARC of Red Rocket.

OK well the amazing Raine Miller writing as Brit Demille did it once again, she delivered another great love story with Red Rocket. I was so looking forward to this as I have a love for hockey and Raine Miller truly knows how to mix business and pleasure within the hockey world particularly in the Crush hockey team in Las Vegas. This hockey read is the third story in the Vegas Crush series but a complete standalone. It is Viktor and Scarlett's story and oh

5 star Review Red Rocket (Vegas Crush #3) by Brit DeMille

The third book in the series and can definitely be read as a stand alone, although since this is only the third book, why not one click the first two as well.

Viktor Demoskev, what a hot and sexy hockey player this man is. I think I may have a new crush, he really ticked the boxes for me and the woman that tamed him, Scarlett Woods was the perfect partner for him.

I loved everything about Viktor and Scarlett, both separately and together. I

I was super excited to read Red Rocket. I've read all of Raine's Blackstone books, so I had a high expectation with this series. I was not disappointed. This book can be read as a standalone or in order with the other books in the series. You are given enough backstory for the other characters that you don't feel like you are missing information.
I love how independent Scarlett is, and how we are given insight into her vulnerabilities. Viktor is seen as a tough guy who has the nickname "Mad

Raine Miller writing as Brit DeMille!!! This story had it all, romance, humor, and steam all mixed among some emotional scenes! Scarlett is a strong, feisty, independent woman, while Viktor at first appears to be a stoic, extremely no nonsense hockey player. Scarlett cracks his shell and their humorous encounters turn into more pretty quickly! I loved how they started out flirty, which led to a steamy connection, but they then realized there was more to explore to take it to the next level! The ...more

Author Raine Miller aka Brit DeMille is on fire with these hockey romances!
Just when I thought I had a favorite in her Vegas Crush series, Viktor and Scarlett's story won me over just like the rest and had me swooning hard.
Viktor is my new Hot Book Boyfriend I want to come to life and be mine.
Scarlett brings out the soft swoony side of Viktor that had me falling head over my hockey skates in love for him.
This story had me fully entertained and can be read as a standalone.
Get ready to fall hard

My ARC review for Red Rocket and also my first book by Raine Miller


Viktor Demoskev, (The Mad Russian) a NHL hockey enforcer for the Crush with a bad reputation.
Scarlett Woods a smart and beautiful young women who has unfortunately had to deal with some rather horrible situations, and learn to only depend on herself.

Ok so this is my first book by Rain Miller, I won the ARC in a giveaway. Now that I've read it I have to go back and read the other two for this series. This book was amazing. The

Red Rocket is so far the steamiest romance in Crush series. Viktor is coldhearted bastard, which doest care about anything, except hockey. He doesnt pose for fans, he isnt polite to other player, he beat the shit of his opponents on ice. The transfer to Crush team softened little his hard egdes on ice, but still he is pretty scary.
Scarlett works in PR and knows, that the affair with the hockey player could cost her the job. And she has also her dark secret from past, who can destroy her future.

Once again, Brit DeMille has scorched the ice right off the Vegas Crush ice rink! Viktor and Scarlett, his Red Rocket, have a blazing romance with a bit of mystery woven in. Not only do you get to see some of the Vegas sights, you also get a glimpse of Russia! And catch up on previous characters to see how they are doing and meeting some new ones, who I hope will get their own story someday (Daisy… will it be Sid or could it be the Lothario Tyler?) You do not want to miss this sexy adventure for ...more

I don’t often read sports romance but when I heard Raine Miller was writing a hockey themed romance as Brit Demille I jumped at the chance to get on that one. As a Canadian, hockey is part of my blood and I thoroughly enjoyed Raine’s take on the NHL with Russian comrades all playing for the same Las Vegas team.

Viktor and Scarlett may be from different worlds but now that their lives are revolving in the same circles, life is throwing them together. Scarlett isn’t looking for a man, she has her

Well well well, our Mad Russian Viktor may be that on the ice, but he’s a tiger between the sheets and a pussy cat when it comes to Scarlett.

Viktor and Scarletts chemistry is instantaneous and no amount of ice is going to cool them down. Fraternisation Policy be damned.
You can just picture the big gorgeous Russian with his broken English trying to get across what he means and having a smile on your face while you do. Then there’s Scarlett, she’s had it tough but she is fun loving and quite the

I am a huge Raine Miller fan and she is the only author I have ever fangirled over. Whatever she writes I am there for ASAP! She is so versatile in her writing from historical romances to hot hockey books!

The Vegas Crush Series is one of the best sports romance series I’ve read and Red Rocket the third book in the series keeps it going. It can be read as a stand-alone, but I always want to read the entire series to get to know the characters as a supporting cast.

My review is for an ARC of Red Rocket.

I accidentally found the Vegas Crush series and have fallen more in love with the characters with each new novel. I am a huge fan of ALL of Raine’s books but her series as Brit are even better, if that’s possible! Not only are you going to want to watch the actual Golden Knights play all season (the NHL team that resides in Vegas), you might find yourself looking for our sassy red head in the stands. Viktor and Scarlett are both amazing characters that have

What an Amazing ride!!! This book has scored the ultimate goal.I really loved the heroine...Scarlett is feisty and outgoing but at the same time a girl next door at heart. Even though the events which she has undergone left her insecure and afraid, she took a brave step along with Victor and got her happy ending..Victor!! Victor!!!

You can read this as a stand alone! You do see characters from the previous books.
Scarlett seemed to know what she wanted in life, she could hold her own when it came to certain things. Viktor is her weakness!
Viktor is a character tell you what. He has no filter really and he will tell you what's on his mind. Oh and his dirty mouth!
Scarlett and Viktor have great banter, even when Viktor doesn't understand American slang. It was funny to read. I could hear the Russian accent as Viktor spoke,

The third book in this series and not disappointed. Meet Victor and Scarlett. He’s the Mad Russian. She’s the Red Rocket. He wants her from the moment he sees her. She’s more reluctant to give into her wants for him.

But it only takes one night to change her mind. And what a night it was. But Scarlett can’t get passed and the fear which left her scared........Victor on the other hand is. It one to give up so easily.........

Only for so long she can deny her attraction to him. Being with him is

Loved it! #ViktorFever



I love sports stories, and I loved Red Rocket. I enjoyed the first 2 books in the Vegas Crush series, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on #3, because I was curious about Viktor. We met him in the previous books, and he always got the "bad guy" part, he was the "Mad Russian" after all, so I was quite keen on getting to know him better. As for Scarlett, I also felt some kind of negative vibe from her so far. Red Rocket changed all that. Viktor is not the usual

Viktor plays for the Vegas Crush and Scarlett is one of their PR girls and we all know that the staff aren't allowed to fraternize until they do. The attraction is instant. Could it be love?

Such an entertaining read, fun, sweet, hot.
The characters, Viktor and Scarlett, are both pretty serious, Viktor in everything he does, while Scarlett can let her hair down and be more fun and spontaneous..still she wants a serious relationship while Viktor is focused on his career.
Their chemistry was crazy from the start and their banter didn't disappoint. I love how they are together and I love even more that Viktor shows another side to her.
Great story!

Raine Miller has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too! Granted Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. A former teacher, she's now writing sexy romance ...more
