Max Fournier is the league's most eligible bachelor and the starting goalie for the Cold Fury hockey team. Max is a romantic at heart, and meaningless sex holds no appeal for him. When he lays eyes on the beautiful Julianne Bradley, Max knows she is something special.

Julianne Bradley is working two jobs to take care of her niece and nephews. She doesn't have time for sleep, let alone a 6´5 famous goalie. But Max isn't about to give up and soon he holds Jule's heart right in his goalie mit. But Max is a celebrity, and with that comes a spotlight that brings more chaos to Jule's already overflowing life.

description

Sports romances are a little iffy for me because they usually involve a ton of OW drama or (as in this case) puck bunnies. Luckily this book was delightfully free of such shenanigans.

Max was a wonderful non-manwhore goalie (and lord knows I have a thing for goalies *cough PETR MRÁZEK cough*) He was sweet and all in from the minute he sees Jules. Jules, on the other hand, got on my nerves a little with her attitude, especially near the end. I found her actions were a bit contradictory to the way she was portrayed for most of the book. Since this was a pretty easy and very low angst type of relationship, it felt like it was just added in to create a little drama before the HEA ending.

That aside, I did really enjoy this one. (I LOVED the little Canadian connection. LOVE me some tourtiere.) This was a breath of fresh air in the piles of manwhore sports heroes we have in the romance genre. If you are looking for a low angst, romantic, easy peasy read then this would be right up your alley.

GimmeAllTheWerdssss Great review! After Hawke we need a hero who isn't a manwhore!


Eve Recinella (Between The Bookends) I haven't read HAWKE. But his and Vales relationship is happening at the same time as this book.


GimmeAllTheWerdssss Eve Recinella (Between The Bookends) wrote: "I haven't read HAWKE. But his and Vales relationship is happening at the same time as this book."

Personally, Hawke was the worse book in this series - and thats a lot considering what a dick Zach was. Him and Val have a shared past which isn't pretty but I could get over it as it was a second chance. I almost bowed out when he introduced her to one of his frequent hook ups and got mad that she was upset. I finished but it felt very unsatisfying.
Max..I like him when was introduced and I'm glad he got a book :-)

He was a bit of a dick in this book IMO as well. So I won't be reading his book for sure! *lol*
