Giorgia ~ Reads

I loved Rux and Cammy.

I usually avoid friends to lovers stories like the plague, but when I read a series I have a hard time skipping over a book and that’s the sole reason I started to read this one.

I’m glad I did. Those two has the kind of chemistry that is hard to come across in books. I usually skip explicit scenes because .. well, most of the time if you’ve read one you’ve read them all but this book, gah, the tension and urgency and the connection between those two was written perfe

"And I'm thinking about that first kiss at the Five Hole, and how sometimes those rash decisions from our past give us a future better than we ever imagined."

It's 3 am in my corner of the world and I have to work tomorrow. I swore to myself I would pace myself and enjoy the story, taking my time. That's out the window now.

Friends to lovers is my favorite trope. And this is perfect. I can't believe the book is over.

5 - "One last time…" Stars!

The Slayers Hockey series just goes from strength to strength with book three; Dirty Rebound giving us Rux and Cammy’s story.

The single mum and the team clown, the best of friends, who decide to try adding ‘benefits’ to their relationship with sexy-hot results! As you delve a bit deeper and get to know them through the dual POV you also see that although they both have full and busy lives, they are still two lonely people looking for companionship on a deeper level th

This is one of the best friends to lovers stories I have read in my entire reading journey (I’m old you guys so that’s saying something!) … Do with that information what you will LOL

It’s no secret I’m a fan of Mira. She’s good people, an outstanding friend and even better author. I’ve read just about every word she’s ever written and sometimes, she does this thing where I can feel her in the story.

Mini Excerpt:

God this was so so so good!

I absolutely devoured this book. Couldn’t put it down if you paid me. One of my favourite things about it was how real funny it was for me. I find a lot of “funny” books don’t read like how people actually joke around. Whereas in this book all the jokes sounded like things my friends and I would say to each other.

The other major win for me, which somehow is also my only gripe, is Rux and Cammy’s relationship. Guys... you were just in a relationshi

While there’s hardly any danger to the reinvention of the wheel here with Dirty Rebound, it still goes about in it’s own way as a satisfying read from start to finish. Dare I say the strongest of the series as it presently stands too. Rux & Cammy were so easy to like, Rux particularly, & breezed their way to the top as my favorite couple in the series so far. True, there’s some drama in the latter stages that’s pretty much par for the course with this trope, but I still say it’s a very good pala

This was friends to lovers perfectly done! Miss Mira knocked another book from this series out of the park. Her talented writing and storytelling made it easy for me to fall fast and fall hard. She easily pulled me in and made me keep turning the pages.

Rux is always the jokester, always trying to make people laugh. But man-o-man, get his heart involved and it is amazing how serious and caring and protective he becomes. His big, beautiful heart comes shining through at exactly
My favourite one in the series so far! A best friends to lovers romance. He's a hockey player. She's a single mom. A fake relationship that quickly transitions into a friends with benefits deal.

Rux and Cammy's relationship feels so natural. The transition from friends to lovers also feels very natural. It doesn't feel forced or contrived. It just happens to be the right timing for Rux and Cammy to cross that line. Their friendship is a solid foundation for their romance to develop.

Dirty Rebound is the third book in the Slayers hockey series by the talented Mira Lyn Kelly! It can be read as a standalone, but you should read Dirty Secret and Dirty Hookup because they are fun and sexy. Mira Lyn Kelly knows how to write hockey hunks and strong sexy women who fall for them! Rux is so fun, sexy and delicious! We have loved Rux for a while and I knew his story was going to be good! He's just so fun, free, sexy and loyal. He loves hard, plays hard and just likes to make people sm ...more

Perhaps it is better to read the previous books first because going into this one without knowing the story made me feel a bit confused.

It’s a story about two friends, going from friends to friends with benefits to finally bf-gf, but we don’t see the beginning of their relationship and thus the feelings they have are not convincing.

Children get me every time. This book was cute, and I more or less loved it. Was it my favorite book of all time? Well, no. But it was adorable, it made me happy, and it brightened my day. What more could you ask for, really?

And I'm out.

This is book three in the Slayers Hockey Series and you are going to want to pick this up! Though it can be read as a standalone I really think you will love it even more after you have read the first two books in the series.

I LOVED Rux and Cammy, oh and not forgetting Cammy's son Matty who is just adorable!

I loved Rux when we first met him so always knew his story was going to be amazing. Rux is at a bit of a crossroads in his career, he is currently the stand in captain as his best mate and

I’m pretty sure it’s my favorite in the series so far. I really fell in love with Cammy and Rux’s relationship–their deep friendship, the support they offer to each other, their passion… Both are characters we met as far back as in Dirty player, and we finally get their story. And it was a beautiful one. And their chemistry was amazing.

I loved how Rux fitted in Cammy’s life, taking care of her and her son, helping when needed. Loving them so much he doesn’t want to risk that by being in a relati

This was my first read by this author, and I was really excited especially since she reached out to be personally and asked for me to review this new release.. But unfortunately I just couldn't connect with this book as much as I wanted to. Camryn and Rex truly had a special friendship and bond between the two of them, but I never felt the passion, chemistry, or even the soul-mate worthy love. I don't know if it was just my head space I was in while reading, but I never even felt a spark between ...more

Dirty Rebound is the third book in the Slayers Hockey series by Mira Lyn Kelly. You can read each book in the series as standalone but I recommend reading them all since they are connected to the team players. They each have their own kind of story but all fun, and sexy with lovable characters. Rux and Cammy have been supporting characters with a friendship and now it’s time for them to have some fun...

Fun. That’s what Ruxton Meyers is all about. You looking for a good time? Rux will give it to

Sooo freaking good!!! I loved it. Plain and simple.
My first read from this author and deffo not last.

First off, the chemistry Cammy and Rex had was off the charts! And I'm a picky reader and my expectations are usually pretty high when it comes to romance. But this book meets all of them.

I'll be quick today because I'm in a hurry and have lots of shit to do.

This book is a beautifully written story about two people who love each other. You see how they grow, how they shift

The Slayers Hockey series just goes from strength to strength. Dirty Rebound is book 3, giving us Rux and Cammy’s story. I’m pretty sure this is my favorite in the series so far. I really fell in love with Cammy and Rux’s relationship. Their close and deep friendship, their mutual support of one another, their chemistry and passion. I’ve been dying for their story since Dirty player, and we finally get it. And it was a beautiful one at that.

You know when you read about the first kiss and it catches your breath in your throat and steals your heart you know you have a book for the ages.
Ruxton is by far one of the best kissers I have ever read! He is all slight touches and gentle hands. He is all about the almost kiss. He leans in and there is spark and magic before his lips even touch. Rux is such an amazing character for a talented hockey player he lacks that little push to grab hold of what he wants.

Wow! I knew how much I loved the Back To Me and the Slayers Hockey series' previous installments so I was very eager to get my hands on Dirty Rebound.

Dirty Rebound surprised me a bit, as the Ruxton Meyers we've seen in the series so far was only sprinkled into the previous books. Rux and Cammy's story was so much sweeter than I thought it would be, but still had enough of the fire I have come to expect of Mira's characters.

I won't give spoilers away, because the back story for both Cammy and Ru

4.5 stars!

Dirty Rebound by Mira Lynn Kelly is the 3rd book in her Slayers Hockey Series. These books are short, sweet and sexy and I am loving them. This story is a fantastic friends to lovers story that I could not put down. Rux plays for The Slayers hockey team. Cammy is his sisters best friend and she and Rux are friends as well. He’s already been there in a platonic way for her and her, son Matty until one moment in time he kisses her. For show at first but then another kiss happens and my

What a phenomenal story! I loved absolutely everything about Rux and Cammy. This was a perfect best friends to lovers story and it was exactly the book I needed. Rux was such an awesome guy and when coupled up with Cammy they were just perfect. When I read the last line of the book my first thought was “I am not done with them and I need more”.
Cammy is a single mother that just wants a security for her and her son and when her latest date breaks up with her, Rux is there to help her save face.

A single mom, best friends to lovers book that will have you melting in more ways than one. I have been (not so) patiently waiting for this one. Rux is all about fun and Cammy is all about Matty, her son. Rux has been a staple in both of their lives for a few years, and I absolutely adore both Rux and Cammy, first as friends and then a single kiss for show thats leads them down a lovers path.

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the third book in the series - and whilst you could read it as a stand alone, you would get more of the atmosphere if you read them in order ... and they are all well worth the read.

Rux is the one of the fun guys on the team. He is full of life, positive attitude and super chilled. He has a bestie, Cammy who has a young son, Matty - and they are as close as close can be, without any limits to what they talk abou

Such a great combination of tropes. Single mom plus friends-to-lovers. Rux and Cami were great together, and I loved the Rux was putty in the hands of Cami's son. I adored seeing his super sweet side. Yes, there was the typical drama that always seems to surround these situations, but I still enjoyed watching these two get to that HEA together. Jump ahead epilogue for the win too. Those always delight me.

If you’ve read the other two books in the Slayers Hockey series, you know Rux is a love em and leave em type who believes he’s not boyfriend/husband material and is completely upfront regarding his belief. Cammy is a wonderful single mom dedicated to her son, Matty. BFF’s, Rux and Cammy have a wonderful relationship, and each would do anything for the others’ happiness. And, Rux is wonderful with little Matty.
