Molly Lynch isn’t like any woman I’ve met before. The pretty, ball-busting reporter has a penchant for asking questions that dredge up memories I’d rather keep buried. I answer them, though, because I’m so intrigued by her—a mix of shy and bold, so set in her ways that the slightest change knocks her off kilter. The closer Molly gets to my dark truth, though, the more I

Jo - •.★Reading Is My Bliss★.•
Kit is a guy who prefers not to attract any attention to himself. He loves to play the game and enjoys the friendships he has with his teammates in the Chicago Blaze. He is not interested in hooking up with puck bunnies and is more known for the charity work he does. For this reason he has piqued the interest of the local paper as someone of interest to do a special feature on.

Molly is more of a hard hitting reporter but due to staffing issues at the paper she is assigned the task of interviewin

I love a good sports romance—especially when it involves hockey—and Brenda Rothert’s Chicago Blaze series is one of my favorites!

Kit is a mild-mannered, quiet, non-attention seeking player. He’s more than happy letting his teammates take the lead and the glory. He just wants to play the game and be a good team player. Until he’s thrust into the spotlight through a newspaper promo that requires him to be interviewed for an in-depth article. It’s the last thing he wants to do but he’ll do it becau
Oh my goodness but she gets some great covers for the Chicago Blaze Hockey Romace series. I’ve loved every one so far. Up until Anton was my favourite. But the other day I opened my Kindle and saw this book there; I’d forgotten I preordered it, I must admit I sat up and said “oh Mamma!” While I still love Anton, this took over first place. Look at it! Isn’t it just so yummy??? Anyway, onto the book.

Brenda Rothert is an autobuy author. I’m pretty sure I own and have read her entire back list, som

Kit by Brenda Rothert is the story of NHLer Kit Carter and newspaper reporter Molly Lynch.

Kit and Molly meet as she does a story about him and the reader can instantly feel the connection these two have.

Kit is such a wonderful character; and it truly was so wonderful to read about a man who loves hockey, gives back to the community, and isn't a dick to a woman. He just a good day making his way through life. Though Kit has a past that comes into play (one I wish the reader did get a bit more of)
I love this series, and I loved Kit and Molly's story, even though it left me with wanting more. There were so many avenues left to explore in this story, so many questions that were left unanswered for me. I felt that I could've read another 50 -- 100 pages of this book --that would've made me extremely happy because I found the characters and the storyline that good. I wanted more of everything!

Kit's a hockey player for the Chicago Blaze. He's a nice guy with a good reputation; not known as a

You would never think that Molly and Kit would be compatible. Kit is a Chicago hockey player who is outgoing and in the public eye. Molly is a workaholic journalist, doesn’t like the limelight, and is divorced after being married to a super jerk. Even though Molly’s coworkers loved to kid her about being so precise about everything, you could tell they all liked her a lot. I feel her life changed for the better when she was assigned to do a personal story on Kit. You couldn’t help but love Kit a ...more

4.5 star Review Kit (Chicago Blaze #8) by Brenda Rothert 
From start to finish Brenda Rothert drew me in and had me invested with the story she wove about offensive lineman Kit Carter and Molly Lynch. This is the eighth book in the Chicago Blaze Hockey Romance series and was a good addition to one of my all time favourite hockey series.
Although Kit is not a particularly long book, Ms.Rothert certainly packed quite a punch with this story. When Molly, a local journalist is tasked with writing a

What do I read on a lazy Sunday afternoon? An amazing 5 star story by Brenda Rothert. I read it all in an afternoon. It’s that amazing.

Kit is an hockey player and Molly is a journalist who needs to write a piece on him. She’s straight forward and very professional. But can she resist Kit’s charms?

I love this series very much. It’s a sports romance but with all the feels. It’s addicting and captivating. Beautifully written with a storyline that had me hooked. Bottomline this is a must read.

I can't believe how emotional Brenda Rothert has been able to make each and every one of the stories in her Chicago Blaze series.
In this one, Molly is the reporter who is trying to make her way to the "city beat". Of course to do this she is at work at least 12 hours every day. She walks to and from every where she has to go. Takes on every assignment she can grab. She is a workaholic. No time for love and romance. Her grumpy boss assigns her to do a feature on a hockey player. Sports, she doesn

Brenda Rothert's Kit adds another heartfelt story to her Chicago Blaze series.

Kit Carter was gorgeous, talented and popular but there was something that just did not fit with the public persona he projected. Molly Lynch was career driven yet struggled with her personal interactions. Both seemed like opposites, Kit with his easy going manner and Molly with her serious disposition yet both shared personal pain that drew them to each other and intuitively made them aware that there was mor

Will have sins to confess after Kit's cover and his story. I wasn't sure I loved Molly but there wasn't enough's mentioned as fact but no stories?? But she's pretty uptight but ambitious. I liked how she didn't get taken advantage of and she had good relationship with her boss.

Kit is pretty simple until he isn't. And that aspect of his story isn't expanded but left open without epilogue. Author addresses this so let's be patient ☺️

This book absolutely killed me! It was so emotional, it kept me on edge until the very end. This is one of THOSE books. The kind of book that sticks with you, even after you finish the last page. It is the kind that I'm sure is going to bring mixed reactions. This book was a tough read, with parts so tragic it brought tears to my eyes, but it was so worth it! This story is full of tragedy yes, but their story was absolutely perfect, and full of hope, most of all.

Kit (Chicago Blaze #8) is a book with all the feels and if you love hockey romance or love stories this book should certainly be on your radar. This is Kit Carter and Molly Lynch’s journey and their story captivated me from the first page to the last line, it’s a quick read but it still packs a mighty punch and it can certainly be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone.

Wow, great story here, and so happy to be back with the Chicago Blaze! 5 stick taps for this one!

Here we have Molly, working hard as a reporter, trying to get her boss to give her a promotion. She's given a job to interview Chicago Blaze hockey good guy Kit. This is supposed to be just a puff piece, but the reporter in her can't help but want to learn everything about him.

Kit is a professional hockey player who is a loyal friend, a great teammate and will do anything for anyone. He is a private man who prefers to keep the secrets of his past buried so when he is chosen to have an article written about him, he is dreading the experience until he meets Molly.

Molly has learnt in the most painful way possible to be careful when it comes to men and her heart. Although she may be attracted and drawn to him she has a story to write and why would a man like him be intere

This is Molly and Kit’s story.
This was not my favorite of the series.
Kit and Molly, on the surface are very different. Molly is the struggling reporter, trying to recover from a failed marriage. Taking on everything thrown her way hoping for a promotion. Kit the handsome, wealthy, professional hockey player. Who goes above and beyond for children’s charities. But as you get into their story, you see that they both struggle with relationships.

Brenda Rothert’s stories are so lovely and such a delight to read. I have loved reading this hockey series! I love her characters, funny, charming and so relatable. I especially loved that the female character, Molly, suffers from social anxiety, so she’s not the outgoing type, more like social introverted. And I loved how Kit catered to her sensibilities, making allowances for her shyness.

Molly works as a journalist at the Chicago Gazette and she was tasked to do a profile piece on Kit Carson,

This book took a turn I wasn’t expecting and it didn’t take a turn I was hoping for. Kit is the 8th book in the Chicago Blaze series.

Molly is a journalist for the Chicago paper who is trying to write her way to the top. When she’s pulled to do an assignment for the social section, it’s definitely out of her norm. The piece is on Kit Carter and his everyday life and who he is overall. The two are complete opposites. Kit is friendly and outgoing. Molly is reserved and suffers from social anxiety.

The first book that I read by author Brenda Rothert was BOUND, from her Fire on Ice series, and it's still one of my favorites of hers. The books in her current series revolve around hockey, as well, and I've really enjoyed the members of the Chicago Blaze and their stories, and I think that KIT might just be near the top of the list.

There's just the right amount of angst in KIT, and the back stories of both Kit and Molly were well developed without being overwhelming. Brenda presents the unfold

Professional athletes have a perfect life, right? Well, in Kit, author Rothert calls that idea into question and makes us think about how we judge and think about the people we only see glimpses of in life.

The focus here is Kit (we've met him before as a secondary character) as he participates in marketing activities that introduces him to Molly. I liked these two characters together, even when they were at the early stages of building their friendship. In getting to know Kit and Molly, she car

I have loved every book so far in this series. Kit is new to the team but a pretty laid back guy. Just wants to play hockey and do his thing.

Molly wants to be a hard nosed journalist and rightfully feels she has to work double hard to prove her chops because she is a woman. She takes writing a fluff piece to a whole new level when she starts investigating her source. Along they way, Kit starts to mean more to her the more she uncovers. He is so patient and respects her boundaries. They wait to

Brenda Rothert is on fire with the eighth book in the Chicago Blaze series, KIT. This is NHL star Kit Carter’s and Chicago Gazette reporter Molly Lynch’s book. Molly is asked to write a story about Kit. She is not convinced he is as nice of a guy as he appears. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult readers.

First off, I instantly liked Molly because we share the same last name. A divorce left her with some anxiety and trust issues. She is hardworking and dedicated. Kit is a great

Molly is a strong woman reporter who wants to advance in her career. She’s juggles everything in front of her no matter the cost. When given a assignment that doesn’t exactly fit in her realm of reporting she is hesitant at first but decides to put a different spin on it. Kit is a hockey player and all around sweet guy. But he has a dark past that he has hidden well so when a reporter is set to do a different type of story and dive in his past he starts putting up a block. They both find what th ...more

I have to start out by saying that this cover is HOT HOT HOT! I can't get enough of the super sexy covers that I can't stop drooling over. Kit is the quiet teammate for the Chicago Blaze, and never wants the attention as he's happy to be in the background. Molly is a journalist who is assigned a fluff piece about Kit, which she's not happy about but has no choice so her questions won't be fluff. They have chemistry as he tries to distract her from his secrets while wanting her himself, but Molly ...more
