I’m banished to Vermont for a scandal that wasn’t my fault, and broke because my famous father cut me off. And did I mention my roommate stole my boyfriend? Yeah, I’m loving my Moo U experience.

Now I need a job, because this gel manicure won’t upkeep itself. The only available option is the last one I’d ever want--a job as the hockey team’s equipment manager. My plan is t

What a charming, feel good story! I just live for Rebecca Jenshak’s new adult sports romances, and I was so excited to dive into this new world. We get a feel good romance, a heroine who does some growing, and all the fun I love about a college sports story- a team full of lovable goofs, parties, high stakes athletic moments, and young adults learning how to be adults, in love and life. While I’ve not read the other books in the series (yet), I loved all of the characters both big and small in t ...more

I just love it when some of my favourite authors come together on a project. Seriously what more could I ask for than Sarina Bowen's world and Rebecca Jenshak's writing? Everything Sarina Bowen has written I have devoured. And I couldn't get enough of Rebecca Jenshak's Smart Jocks series. So, this book being announced had me jumping with joy.

And with Sarina Bowen publishing them and doing the promotion I jumped on them before they had covers and blurbs and I'm loving every second of the journey.

I really liked Lex he was so sweet, funny & kinda a goofball but boy was Kaitlyn annoying AF to the point that I kind of didn't want them to end up together. She was ok to begin with but as the story went on she became more and more unbearable other than that this was actually a super quick and easy read.

I loved the side characters and def plan on checking out the other books in this series written by the various other authors 😊

Gonna be honest here, when I read college romance I want to be that young again, when you're on the cusp of adulthood but still have the bonus of being young and don't know better. Enough rambling, let's talk shop.

Performance 4.5 stars
Story 4 stars

This was such a fun and sweet sports romance. Rebecca Jenshak always manages to take my favorite tropes and twist them in just the perfect way making them wonderfully unique. Slapshot is book 2 in the world of True North Moo U series, but it can be enjoyed as a standalone.

I loved that Kaitlyn was a little older than Lex and that she was the more "famous" one. Things in Kaitlyn's past have left her wary and untrusting of others, and

Slapshot was a wonderful read. I've freaking loved everything about this book, the characters, main and friends, the hockey, the plot, it was impossible to stop reading it.

Kaitlyn Dalager is a new transferred student at the Moo U, she likes to spurge money until the day she finds herself broke because her famous ex NHL player father cuts her fonds. She has to get a job quickly and her only acceptable choice is the hockey team’s equipment manager, so even if she came to despise everything hocke

Hard work for the win. Or maybe it's just love conquering all. I'm going to choose to continue to believe that love is like everything else--it works only as hard as you do. And I'm a damn hard worker.

This book was such a nice surprise for me. I know I can always count on Rebecca Jenshak to deliver a sports romance with heart, but SLAPSHOT was like a warm bubble bath on after a long day at work. I settled into the Moo U world so effortlessly and loved every word of Lex an

This was such a good listen! If you follow my reviews, you already know that I love a good hockey romance and that I have really enjoyed Sarina Bowen's World of True North so I was eager to listen to this book. Rebecca Jenshak is a new to me author so I was also looking forward to sampling her writing. This book turned out to be a very enjoyable listen from beginning to end.

Kaitlyn just started at Moo U - after being thrown out of her old New York school. And her famous hockey legend dad stopped giving her spending money until she gets her life on track again. So she needs a job.

How have I not read a Rebecca Jenshak book before this?
Are they all this amazing?

Slapshot is one of those feel good, light, fun romance stories.

I. Just. Seriously? This was good. I enjoyed the banter, the chase, the chemistry. I am always a sucker for a hot hockey guy and the woman who brings him to his knees.

And if you're really feeling frisky, do the audiobook. The narrators NAIL THIS STORY.
Do it.
You know you want to.

I read the first three books in the Moo U series back to back and I don’t wanna play favorites but here we are *snickers*

I enjoyed this story tremendously! I love this author’s style and voice. I don’t have a whole lot of reading experience with her but what I have read has made me super happy. It also doesn’t hurt that I’m a huge fan of the True North World! One of the main things I love about a sports romance series is that you don’t just get to be captivated by the romance journey but also en

Lex and Kaitlyn were just good, old-fashioned, sexy, swoony fun!

Good gravy but Ms. Jenshak managed to capture all of my favorite things about sports romance: the bromance, the team camaraderie, the adorable athletic buffoonery, and the magic that comes from watching an elite athlete brought to his knees by his love for a woman. I die for this stuff, you guys. I gobble it up and keep coming back for more!

This is my first book by this author but it definitely won’t be the last! I enjoyed every second of this book and it kept my attention from the very first chapter.

Lex and Kaitlyn were fantastic together. I really enjoyed Lex’s sweet and honest side. And I liked the contrast with Kaitlyn’s more closed-off nature and difficultly with all kinds of relationships. Kaitlyn’s dad is a famous retired hockey player and they have a complicated relationship. The progression of their story was a great part

Rebecca Jenshak never fails to deliver a light-hearted sports romance that has everything I adore about the trope, and this foray into the hockey world was one of my favorite books from her.

Lex is absolutely adorable in every way, and generally sweet heroes are not my favorite but he worked for me. I loved that he listened to the heroine, that he tried to understand her feelings, and that even when he messed up, he actively worked to make it right.

Just as the new NHL season is ramping up, so is my reading of my hockey hotties.

I loved that this second installment of the Moo U series focuses more on the hockey side of the things, more than that farm side (don't get me wrong, I love all the Vermonty-farmy stuff, but the hockey has my heart 💜)

Lex is just all kinds of swoony. How any girl can resist him is beyond me. And our girl Kaitlyn tries.

I knew it from the first few times that he was mentioned in Blindsided and it was so good to have it confirmed: Lex Vonne is one of my all-time favorite male leads in a romance. First of all he's the perfect opposite to Kaitlyn. He's calm, he's steady, he's focused on hockey. For someone like Kaitlyn who has had trust issues her ENTIRE life, he is everything she needs (even if she thinks he's got to be playing some kind of game).

Another great book by the author! She writes new adult and sports romance like no other. College companionships are well described, with the teasing by the pairs, the parties, but also the loyalty inside the teams. With characters at a crossroads, when they’re beginning to realize that they must make difficult decisions for their future. It’s never too heavy, and this book isn’t either.

While Kaitlyn struggles with her relationship with her father, Lex is trying to find his place in the hockey te

Slapshot by Rebecca Jenshak is the second interconnected standalone in the MOO U series (connected to Sarina Bowen's World of True North universe) and a brilliant addition to this college hockey world. This super sweet and adorable romance had me swooning right from the start and I quickly found myself completely lost amongst the pages.

Kaitlyn and Lex meet at the rink, where she takes over as the equipment manager for the team. Cut loose by her famous former NHL player das, she needs the job, badly.
Lex knows hockey. He focuses on hockey, and has his goal to move up from 4th line.
Kaitlyn doesn’t want to have to do anything with the team outside the rink. But Lex slowly weasels his way into her life. He’s so sweet and swoony about the way he’s doing it, it’s quite adorable.

I love reading Rebecca Jenshak and was so excited to find out she was writing in the True North world.
Kaitlyn's roommate and her ex boyfriend are together now, so that's fantastic. She's just DONE with men right now. She transferred to Moo U from another university and is a hockey players daughter, so naturally, she isn't fond of hockey players. Her relationship with her dad is strained but when he cuts her off until her grades get better, she needs to find a job quick. Most of the campus jobs

You know what’s frustrating?? Starting a series with a bang and the next one is a little flat & lacking.

I have a love - not so love relationship with Rebecca Jenshak’s books so I have put this one off since loving the first book in the Moo U series. I absolutely loved her ‘The Fadeaway’ but some of her other books just didn’t hit the mark for me.

So on to Slapshot, the second book in an anthology of authors that all have a hand in writing about Moo U and the students within. This time round it’s

It's official, I'm obsessed with Moo U. Rebecca Jenshak absolutely killed it in this second book in the new series from Sarina Bowen's World of True North. And the narrators of the audiobook? Perfection. Perfection to the point of seeking out other books they've each narrated for my next audiobook listens.

If you read Bowen's Heartland, you probably hated Kaitlyn like I did, so Jenshak had her work set out for her in making Kaitlyn likable and the heroine of her own story, but she did a phenomen

I loved Kaitlyn and I loved her and Lex's story from the beginning until the end. Kaitlyn is trying so hard to not get kicked out again of college and to avoid hockey players. But when working as team manager is the only job she could tolerate, there is no way she could avoid the sport or the players.

If you can gather, Kaitlyn does not want anything to do with the sport because of her dad. She is very wary and skeptical when people come to befriend her. So the same applies to Lex when he approac

I always enjoy Rebecca Jenshak’s sports romance books. She always gives us plenty of sporty scenes, and I cannot appreciate her enough for this. Add in that she decided to dive into one of Sarina Bowen’s worlds, and this book was truly meant for me.

I would consider Slapshot a twinge of enemies-to-lovers, although it is entirely one-sided. Kaitlyn was a problematic character, but it is explained why she is that way. She had many issues to work through, and she saw that and even grew, thus growin
