Secretly hooking up with the team captain's sister was a bad idea.
In my defense, the first time I saw her I didn't know who she was.
Kind, gorgeous, a little naïve. Ginny brightened my world from day one.
I knew I was no good for her. She was just out of a relationship and I had a reputation for having a new girl in my bed every weekend.
I tried to do the right thing. Hones

I love Rebecca Jenshak’s sports romances and I was super excited to read this one. First off, it’s a friends to lovers and brother’s friend/roommate romance. And second of all, the hero is Nate’s (from ‘The Fake’) brother.

Ginny is a college freshman who just got out of a breakup. She doesn’t know anyone at Valley college, except for her hockey playing brother, Adam. She starts to meet some of Adam’s friends and teammates, one of them who is insanely attractive to her, Heath. Heath an

Heath and Ginny were super cute. I don’t know why I expected this to be hot and steamy friends with benefits. I mean, it sort of did have that vibe, but you could also tell these two were forming a friendship and falling for each other along the way. This one is very low angst. It also has a bit of a secret relationship vibe, but honestly everyone knows that these two characters are spending time with each other. It’s overall just a sweet and fun college romance read. I like the new friend group ...more

Ginny Scott is a newly single college freshman at Valley University in Arizona. She's fresh off a break up and the new girl on campus. The only thing familiar there is her older brother Adam. As she tries to make new friends and socialize more she meets her brother's insanely hot friend Heath. She's ridiculously attracted to him, and his playful personality. He has a reputation as a ladies man, and is all wrong for her, so she tries to resist his
He smells like soap and sun and wild dreams. Dreams you shouldn't allow because they're so out of reach, but you can't help but want. Dreams you don't speak of, but that live in the darkest corner of your mind.

Sweet friends-to-lovers story that will melt your heart... 4 stars!

This book was like the best cozy sweater that's in your closet. You know, the one that's stretched out and mostly faded but feels like a hug from your grandma. It was so nice being back at Valley U and seeing familiar l

I can hear the gasps in the background, but I enjoyed this book more than I enjoyed any other recently released hockey romance by far more popular authors for that matter (yes I am referring to Elle Kennedy for example, even though I still love H&G SO MUCH) and even more than I expected.
Heath and Ginny are both so lovable and funny, there is nothing I would change about them. They have an instant attraction but they stay friends for a while before taking a leap and jumping into doing anythin

Secret Puck is a new adult college sports romance. It is a brothers team mate/friend romance with a somewhat secret/hidden relationship aspect and combines friends to lovers and slight age gap elements.

Ginny is recently out of a relationship and starting her freshman year of college. She isn't necessarily looking for a serious relationship and just plans on enjoying her college experience and meeting new people. While at college she is introduced to her brother's hockey team mates and

This is cute. I am a fan of Miss Jenshak. Most of her Valley U series, I enjoyes it. Secret Puck is the spin off. Heath is the brother of Nathan.

The story is typical NA romance involving best friend's brother. But the forbidden aspect is minimum and replace with cute, bromance, sassy banter. And Miss Jenshak makes it work perfectly.

Plot is light. I like the chemistry between Heath and Ginny. They are cute together. Their relationship evolving from friend to lover is something sweet and cute.

4.5 - "You… It’s only you." Stars!

We return to Valley U, with the start of the Campus Nights series giving us Heath Payne’s story. If you have read the author’s Smart Jock’s series, you will already know a little about Heath, although I’d recommend reading the series, you really don’t need to have done so, to enjoy his and Ginny’s story.

So, I may be a little stalker addicted to Rebecca Jenshak’s writing after devouring the Smart Jocks series. And when this one popped up and it was a college hockey book I was totally there for it. I pretty much went in blind but as it progressed it had me so sucked in, I didn’t want to put it down. And a huge part of that was that as it progressed so much from Rebecca’s previous books came flooding back as well as getting this awesome new story and a heap of amazing new characters.

Welcome back to the Velley U!!
Rebecca Jenshak brings us back to the campus where we previously fell in love with a bunch of beautiful and funny jocks. Now we meet another group of friends and I can assure you they have nothing to envy to the old ones who in the meantime have graduated.

Secret Puck was a nice and sweet read, low in the drama side and full of funny scenes.

Heath is a promising hockey player, he likes flings without any feelings. Ginny is a freshman, she has planned to start college

If you love NA sports romance with sweet and slightly steamy storylines, you need to be oneclicking Rebecca Jenshak’s novel. Secret Puck is another on a long line of fantastic romances that are endearing and entertaining.

Jenshak has a knack of creating thoroughly lovable characters, everyone form the H and h to the secondary cast. They are charming and authentic.

Heath and Ginny have a cute relationship, drawn to each other with a believable chemistry. It is entertaining se

I LOVED Secret Puck! It was the perfect blend of both adorable and sweet and hot and steamy. I’m not entirely sure what I was expecting after reading the blurb, but it definitely wasn’t this. I’m all for a forbidden and secret romance, so I was super excited when I found out it was between a teammate and his captain’s sister. But it definitely had more of a friends to lovers vibe than anything. I mean sure there was a teensy bit of sneaking around, but Heath and Ginny were completely obv

I’m so happy that Heath & Ginny are finally here and that you can all read their story, because it’s bloody brilliant. I’ve been a huge fan of Rebecca’s since the very early days and she never fails to amazes me with her words. The Valley U characters are the best; I love each and every one of them.

Rebecca Jenshak writes the best sports romance, so when I heard she was going to be writing a hockey series I couldn't wait to read it. Secret Puck hits all my favorite tropes. It is a hockey romance, friends to lovers, brother’s friend and roommate romance.

Ginny has just arrived at Valley U for her freshman year. She doesn't know anyone, except her hockey player brother, Adam. Ginny is getting over a bad breakup and dating someone new is not at all on her radar in her first year. Ginny

Secret Puck is a fun and enchanting college, hockey romance set in the Valley U world, which if you have read Rebecca Jenshak’s Smart Jocks series, then you will know this world very well! I love Rebecca’s sports romance stories and I’m so excited for this new series from her.

I really enjoyed this story. Rebecca is on fine form, with her usual brand of banter, slow burn romances and likeable and engaging characters. And the secondary characters are great, in particular the guys on Heath’s team a

Book 1 in the Campus Nights series and it was such an amazing start to the series. Love a good sports romance and this was one of the good ones. Loved the chemistry and the instant attraction between Heath and Ginny. The banter between them was fun and a joy to read. I fell in love with these characters so much. Loved their story and can’t wait to read more in this series.

OMG when I found out Rebecca was writing a hockey series I was all I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE!

This book is the perfect bridge from the smart jocks and oh my word I loved it so much. Heath and Ginny just...gah, there's no way not to fall in love with them.

This book is a steamy read wrapped up in a slow burn that will have you turning the pages because you just can't get enough!!!

I'm so ready for more in this series!!!!

I got to know Rebecca Jenshak's writing this year and since then I've read several books by her and found myself captivated by her stories. If you like to read a Sport romance that takes place at the university, this book cannot be left aside because it is a great start for a new series and ends up introducing us to several characters that I hope to meet in the future.

Here the story revolves around Heath and Ginny, he who for fans of the author was briefly presented in the book The fake

Secret Puck is a fun and enchanting college, hockey romance set in this author’s Valley U world. It is a friends-to-lovers romance, but also a secret romance within the big brother’s friend trope. I absolutely adore this author’s style of writing with her immensely likable & relatable characters and engaging storylines. Secret Puck is relatively low on drama & angst with a good dose of humor and steam all making it a vastly entertaining and enjoyable read. Both Ginny and Heath are easy to love. ...more

Oh, this one was sooo good! Secret Puck is the first in a new series by Rebecca Jenshak. It’s a spinoff of the Smart Jocks series. That one focused on the basketball players at Valley, and this one focuses on the hockey players at Valley. It’s a new adult standalone.

Team captain, Adam, has made it known that his freshman sister, Ginny, is off limits to the hockey players. But, once Ginny starts hanging out with Adam and his friends, she meets Heath and is immediately attracted to him. Heath and

I have been hooked on Rebecca Jenshak since the beginning of the Smart Jocks series and my nostalgia heart loved reading Health's story since we first saw him in The Fake. This guy is definitely more than meets the eye and might not understand relationships, but has a HUGE heart!

This is not just a brother's best friend story, it is even more since Ginny is Health's hockey captain's little sister- talk about complicatedddddd- and I loved it! This book had the laughs, the heart, and the secondary

Note: This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased opinion.

You know how some books make your heart happy? That's exactly what Secret Puck did for me. I loved it from the very start. I had no doubt I would, getting to return to the same college setting that hosted Jenshak's Smart Jocks series, and getting to know Nathan's little brother Heath better. It was more than that, though. Jenshak has become an author I know is going to make laugh, smile, and fall in love w
