Weak-arsed-bitch hero.
Stupid heroine who gives up vet school for him so they can be together.

Fuck off with this bullshit.

Love these hockey romances!

This spin-off of the Las Vegas Sidewinders series has carved its own corner on my ‘must re-read’ shelf! The writing style, the characters, the drama – each read is guaranteed to be a winner and Aaron and Sara’s was just that…

They were friends, good friends, even though Sara wished for more. Aaron’s romantic history was anything but quiet, however. I felt so bad for him, I really did. Even if that affected how he treated Sara. That all changed though when disaster

Kat Mizera is a newer author for me and this is my first visit to the Anchorage Blizzard hockey team and the world around them.

I enjoyed the set up of Saving Sara. Two people who have been good friends, had a romantic interlude gone wrong, and come back together in a time of need. Seeing them reconnect as friends then start a more in-depth relationship was sweet.

Sara was a character that I liked. She was relatively young, so some of her life confusion was expected. I appreciated the

The Blizzard hockey team and their friends and family are almost like home now with the fifth book in this series. I've been waiting for Aaron and Sara's story. For years they have been best friends, but Sara is wanting something more and Aaron is afraid of his past of bad relationships and a fear of losing the friendship he shares with Sara if he takes it to the next level.

Of course there are ups and downs, things that bring them closer together or farther apart. But Sara is the best thing in

Aaron and Sara are amazing! I already have a soft spot for goalies and animals, this book amped the game up.

Shelves: first-reads
Emotional hurdles, unrequited love, heated attraction, friendships and heartbreak are waiting on the horizon. Saving Sara has so much going on, but is surprisingly well put together. Mizera plays the heart strings with a romance interrupted. Aaron and Sara have a friendship that can survive anything. Or so they thought. From revisiting old friends to discovering new ones, Mizera proves that a heart can take a beating and still manage to find true happiness waiting on the other side.

Although book 5 in the series this book could be read as a stand alone but if you’ve read some of the other books it’s nice to reconnect with other characters and see how their relationships are getting on.
Sara and Aaron are best friends but Sara is in love with Aaron and wants more.
Aaron hasnt had the best track record where relationships are concerned and doesn’t want to destroy the great friendship him and Sara have by trying to turn it into more than friendship.

Sexy Best Friends to Lovers Ice Hockey romance

I am reasonably new to Kat Mizera’s books, and haven’t yet started on any of her Ice Hockey heroes. So, in reading Saving Sara, I found everything I knew I wanted to be reading in a sports romance about those hot alpha males on the ice.

Even though I have come into this stand-a-lone series at book 5, I didn’t feel like I was in a room full of private jokes at any point. Ms Mizera has introduced me to characters without giving away their backstories,

After Sara and Aaron share one night of passion, can Aaron shove his best friend back into the friend zone? In this book, I got to revisit some of my favorite characters from previous books in the Blizzard’s Series and some from the Sidewinder’s Series. Aaron and Sara have been best friends,but Sara wants more and feels more for Aaron than he seems to want. Aaron has had more than his share of messy relationships and he values what he and Sara share. After a disaster brings Sara to become Aaron’ ...more

Aaron and Sara developed a friendship that turned into something more. After one encounter, Aaron pulls away breaking Sara's heart. Will they be able to put it together to get their happily ever after as their friends have done?

Aaron is the goalie for the Alaska Blizzard who is a great teammate and friend but when it comes to women his past has shown him that his judgment is not to be trusted. He and Sara are best friends and even though they had one steamy encounter he quickly stepped backed as he didn’t want to destroy their friendship.

Sara is trying to find her place in life both personally and professionally. She has always wanted to be more than friends with Aaron, but their one encounter was enough for Aaron.

Kat Mizera has brought us another brilliant story of the Alaska Blizzard franchise. Aaron and Sara have been friends for a few years now. Thrown together by their circumstances as the single members of the inner core group, they develop a strong friendship over the years over hockey and helping their friends and each other through various struggles in life. Aaron has had several bad relationships and has sworn off any future entanglements. Sara has had her own experience with a failed ...more

So I first have to say I love a friends to lovers romance. I can’t believe how many hurdles these two characters had to go through to make it work. So Sara needed to be more confident and Arron needed to get his S*it together. But when all is said and done it’s called friends to loves for a reason, and once you add hockey into the mix you have with steamy romance. I absolutely love this series and reading about other characters and how their lives are after their books end is so magical for me.

This was a great hockey romance. I love sports romance and this one did not disappoint.

Aaron and Sara had been friends for a long time. Both of them ignoring the attraction. One night changes their relationship. Sara wishes for the better.

When Sara is injured their friendship is rekindled. Will it be enough to move forward with a romantic relationship? Will they get it right this time?

I enjoyed this book. I loved getting the other couples as well. I look forward to the next one.

Didn't hate but Aaron was a bit hasty at one point and if this author thinks I ever want to read a guy do that to the girl. It was so unseemly. Sara was a negative Nancy as was her dad. Geez. If she could get out of her head I really would of liked her.

So not wild about.

Loved it.

Aaron and Sara have been best friends for a few years now. While Sara is having stronger feelings Aaron doesn't want to do anything to ruin the friendship.. Aaron hasn't had the best of luck in relationships and he can't lose Sara by doing something stupid. One night everything changes for them both but Aaron can't handle it. When Sara needs him the most will he stay away or help her?

Story of watching a friendship grow into love. Highlight is Merlin .. You will have to read it to see

My Rating: 4/5 stars!!

I had been waiting for Aaron and Sara's story since I first discovered this series. This is the fifth book so the wait was excruciating.. *mumbles* didn't help that Kat Mizera had other books being release before this one. But all good. All good.

Their story did not disappoint. I read this baby in one sitting and it's probably my fave story from the series so far. Not being bias but there story just flowed so well. Whilst the previous books in the series were great reads

Saving Sara is Book 5 in the Alaska Blizzard series. It is my first read in this series, and I feel it can be read as a standalone. There are a few characters that play a big part in this book, and once you get to know them and the group dynamics, it is easy to follow the story of Aaron and Sara.

Set in Anchorage, the Alaska Blizzard is a hockey team, with Aaron the current goalie. He’s had his fair share of bad luck in the romance department and has a love em and leave em reputation. Sara is a

Once again Kat doesn't fail to please hooking you in and making the book hard to put down. Sara works as a vet assistant and nanny for Niko son of Dani and Sergei.
Aaron plays goalie for the ice hockey team Alaska Blizzard and though Sara and he have been friends for years he gets scared off after a one night stand and distances himself from her. Everything changes when Alaska gets hit by an earthquake and Aaron has to rescue Sara from the vet clinic as some debris has fallen across her legs.

Aaron Ferrar and Sara Chandler have been best friends for years. While both have deeper feelings for the other, they are afraid to risk their friendship. When Sara decides to finally make the first move, however, Aaron is all in . . .until he panics and pushes her away and virtually out of his life.

When disaster brings them closer than ever, both try fighting their feelings, but finally give in to what they both want and need. But, when miscommunications and misunderstandings throw a wrench in

I am new to this series, but I don't feel like I don't feel like I missed anything or was confused as I read this book. Aaron and Sara have been friends for a couple of years and secretly have an attraction to each other. When Sara, who is admittedly floundering, makes the first move and they cross the line, Aaron acts horribly afterward. Neither one feels right about the wedge between them, but doesn't know how to move past what happened.

I love how this book started out and I hated it all at the same time. Aaron and Sara have been best friends for a few years. One night changes everything though and Aaron's actions make being friends difficult. Fast forward a few months and an earthquake changes things for these two even more. Sara needs a place to stay and Aaron wants his friend back and then more. I enjoyed getting to know these two and watching their love blossom. The storyline was good but it didn't always hold my interest. ...more
