I don’t do relationships. A federal agent whose life revolves around rescuing kidnapped children, I’ve got no interest in catching any man who’s not a criminal. So when my new assignment in Chicago requires me to get closer to a VIP Chicago Blaze fan, Blaze goalie Jonah West is the perfect cover. Like me, he’s too focused on his career to make time for love, dates or

Eva Mendez look-a-like FBI agent out to capture a Jeffrey Epstein-like scumbag goes undercover as girlfriend to star goaltender Jonah West...yeah, bring it on!

Rey Diaz is one kick-ass woman, and she just might be the one to bring lonely widower Jonah back to life.
By posing as his girlfriend, it gives her an ‘in’ into the world of sports fan /scumbag /sex trafficker Darren Shields’s life. Shields is a fan of Jonah’s team (Chicago Blaze) and attends games and events for the team. A chance meeting

Jonah has featured throughout this series and losing the love of his life, his wife Lily absolutely crushed him. It’s been three years since that happened and knows that he will never have what he had with Lily ever again. His life is focused on the passion he has for his career in the NHL and he has a lot of love & support from his circle of friends on the team.

When Jonah’s brother Logan, a local cop in Chicago, calls him in to ask a favour with a case, he is happy to help him out. The

I really wasn't sure where this one was going as I read the first couple of chapters, didn't make sense for a romance hockey book. It didn't take long before you realized why the first part was so different, why it was important and how it related to the rest of the book.

From there the tone of the book was sort of quiet, romance the last thing on either of Jonah or Rey's mind. I liked how these two got to know each other, there was no pressure, just a slow build of a friendship and sharing of se

In this latest addition to the Chicago Blaze series, Brenda Rothert delivers a bit of a suspense drama while keeping the sports romance trope alive. The plot is a bit heavy as it involves the FBI and a the investigation into a child sex ring, one being investigated by Logan West, brother of Jonah West, the goalie from the Chicago Blaze. Logan brings together the undercover investigator Reyna Diaz and Jonah, who has access to the main culprit, Darren Shields. The setup between Jonah and Rey seeme ...more

Why did this book have to end?!?!? I don’t even know where to start with my favorite parts of this story.
First it starts out POWERFULLY with an intense and emotional introduction to FBI agent Reyna Diaz.

“I’ve always prided myself on not needing anyone to look out for me, but I’ve realized something with Jonah—just because I don’t need it doesn’t mean I don’t want it or deserve it.”

Second, when Reyna has to go undercover we get the best fake relationship Ever! I think I highlighted every word

I love this series so much. This story was no different, I binged read it in no time. I was hooked from the first page read to the last one.

Jonah is the goalie for the Chicago Blaze. He is paired with Reyna for an uncover assignment. When neither expected it, they fell in love.

This was such an amazing story that had me addicted from the start. Amazing characters with a great storyline. It was an highly entertaining page turner. Jonah and Reyna have some chemistry. Even the secondary characte

I'm going to opt out of this one.
I've enjoyed the series so far but there are a couple of things that I'm not keen on in this one.
The heroine is an undercover cop investigating children being abducted for sex.
Hero in chapter 1 reveals he is a widow for 3 years and he's still hung up on his wife, he blatantly says there is either her or noone.
The premise is a fake relationship between the Hero and heroine so she can get close to a suspect who is famous and moves in the outskirts of the hockey wor

I've been mostly following the Chicago Blaze series and it's had a lot of interesting characters. One of which is Jonah whose been in the background a lot. We know he is a widower and it's still on his mind.

Don't know how orthodox it is to have a hockey player help out in a police investigation even if he's just a cover. Reyna and Jonah had a purely business relationship if you can call it that. I mean no interest accept that they both are good looking and they have to work together. Jonah is a

This book was so good! It is definitely one of my favorites of Ms. Rothert’s. Reyna is such a strong but beautiful woman who works undercover for the FBI. I think she is wonderful to want to get the sickos who use children sexually. I don’t think I could ever do what she did, but I admire that someone like her could. Jonah has such a wonderful heart even though it was broken three years ago. I hated to see that he wasn’t really living his life. I was so glad his brother asked him to pretend to b ...more

Jonah by Brenda Rothert was love story that transcended its trope... "fake relationships" aren't always my jam but I have wanted a happy for Jonah so long I happily drove in and man was I blown away. The premise for the relationship was so powerful, it had me rooting for all parties involved!
As federal agent Reyna and NHL goalie Jonah start to intertwine their lives the chemistry is tangible and the banter is so engaging.
This book is more than just a story the author masterfully crafted

He is unable to say no when his brother requests that he pretend to be in a relationship with an undercover federal agent besides with his heart belong to the one he loved and lost it’s not like they will develop feelings for each other, right?

Oh Jonah. I love Brenda Rothert's Chicago Blaze series and each of the players!! They're all a family or at least try to be one. I find that team camaraderie just so amazing and admirable. I wasn't really a team sports girl so I missed that teamwork feel.

Anyway, Jonah is available to help Reyna with an undercover assignment that she needs an "in" with. And Jonah, a coworker's brother, is the perfect cover. And Jonah isn't looking for a relationship so helping Reyna by being a "boyfriend" is gre

You would think after six books, there could be no more to write about, but you could not be more wrong when it comes to Brenda Rothert. In the seventh book in the Chicago Blaze series, we get Jonah and Reyna’s story and it was an unexpected and captivating fake relationship romance. Jonah has no intention to ever love a woman again. He had his great love and nothing could compare, right? Reyna is all about her job and chasing criminals. She has to time for relationships. When they need to work ...more

Jonah finally!!! Talk about two complete opposite individuals. Reyna and Jonah were total opposites. She’s an FBI Agent that is a baddie and one of the best in her job. He’s a NHL goalie a widow and not interested in dating. But then they are paired for an assignment and start off on shaky grounds. They both thought that the other was gorgeous but that was it. Rey liked being in control and so did Jonah. She was nothing like his deceased wife who was very sweet and patient Teo things far from wh ...more

After meeting Jonah in the previous books and knowing what’s happened with him, I was really rooting for him to have a happily ever after.
He deserved one.
Perhaps this is just my opinion. But I’m sticking by it! I’m very happy he has his own story!

Anyways -

Rey in an undercover FBI agent who saves children. It’s her life mission. She is placed in Chicago for a new undercover assignment and she gets to ‘use’ Jonah as her fake boyfriend for this operation. Not a bad fake boyfriend to have at all. I

This story had me me cry tears, made me angry, made me happy, made me laugh. This book was everything I wanted for Jonah and more. Kai is an amazing side character and maybe one day Brenda will step out of her norm and give us their story.

Lily was one of a kind in previous books and it was gonna take someone just as amazing for Jonah to let love in again but Rey was exactly what he needed

I loved the premise. It was quite different and refreshing. Both main characters were well developed. Wow, was Rey ever a strong woman. I liked how smart she was. Jonah was book boyfriend!!! Kai was super fun and interesting.

It has enough hockey to really read as hockey romance.

I am beyond addicted with this brilliant hockey series from Brenda Rothert.
Her hockey men are so easy to love. In this thrilling novel we learn the fate of Jonah, a man who is at the top of his game and career but he is alone there at the top. His beloved wife was taken way too young and so for him the remainder of his career will be spent solo.
Reyna suffered through some unspeakable tragedy growing up and instead of crippling her it has only made her stronger. A tough as nails FBI agent who se

I loved this book! I think it was my favorite in the series, although they have all been favorites. Just a case of my favorite right now! I loved Jonah, what a decent guy! And Reyna was of Cuban descent, so close to my heart since Puerto Rico and Cuba are like the wings of a bird, sister countries. I totally got the reference to ropa vieja, a favorite dish!

Jonah lost his beloved wife three years ago, and is now a determined bachelor. He swore forever love with his wife, and he doesn’t want anoth

We're almost at the end of the beloved Chicago Blaze series by author Brenda Rothert, and finally, finally, she's given us Jonah's book. Jonah has been a constant throughout the series, the guy that has been dealt a heartbreaking blow, but who has been the steady one, the teammate that has been a friend and a sounding board for all of his brothers.

When Jonah lost his beloved Lily, he didn't think that his heart would ever be open to love again. After all, Lily was his soul mate, his other half,

Another fun Chicago Blaze story! Hockey and hot guys--I don't know what more we need... ;)

While reading Jonah and Rey's story, the pages practically turned themselves! A fake relationship story with a hint of suspense (it's the reason why they're in the fake relationship, but the focus here is really on Jonah and Rey falling in love, not Rey's mission) I thoroughly enjoyed every minute I spent with this story from their we're-not-getting-off-on-t

Not going to lie, I’ve been anxiously waiting for this book ever since Brenda threw the mother of all plot twists at us with the death of Jonah’s high school sweetheart/wife, earlier in the series. And it did not disappoint. If you’re like me and a huge fan of Brenda Rothert’s Chicago Blaze Series then you are seriously invested in each and every player’s story and Jonah’s is particularly special.

Before starting this book, I asked myself how I was going to feel, reading about a widowed Jonah. Ho

Jonah unexpectedly lost his wife three years ago. He knows that he will never find love like that again. When his police officer brother asks him to pretend to be in a relationship with Reyna to catch a child trafficker he reluctantly agrees. What he doesn’t expect is to actually fall for her.

I am so glad Jonah found love again. The sudden death of his wife Lily in the previous book, Victor, was heartbreaking for everyone. I liked Jonah in previous books but I really grew to love him with this

I’m addicted to Brenda Rothert’s Chicago Blaze series. I doubt I’ll ever get tired of it. Each book has something different to offer. Sure, it centers around professional ice hockey players, but the plots never get boring. At least, not to me. In her latest offering, “Jonah,” there’s intrigue, crime, undercover FBI agents, and an unexpected love story.

Rothert does away with the cliches. Yes, Jonah is a widower when he first met Reyna and he was still grieving his wife, somewhat. It’s only been t

5 star Review Jonah (Chicago Blaze #7) by Brenda Rothert 
Every time I pick up a book in the Chicago Blaze series, I don’t think that it can be better than the last one and yet every time it is. From start to finish Brenda Rothert drew me in and held me captivated with the story she wove. This is Reyna and Jonah West’s story and what a story it was; it blew me away.

Having met Jonah before and knowing the heartbreak that he endured, I was anxious to see what Ms.Rothert had in store for him and

We have met Jonah before and we knew the heartbreak he had suffered so i was intrigued to see where Ms Rothert was going to take us and wether she was going to give the man the HEA he so deserved.
