BLOCKED (GOLD HOCKEY#1)
Brit has the chance to make history by being the first female goalie to play for an NHL team, the San Francisco Gold. So, when she is introduced to Stefan, the Gold's captain, she is determinedly not interested.
Stefan is sexy, charming, and has a publicly documented list of conquests a mile long. Brit is unwilling to risk mixing business with pleasure, even when that business is wrapped up in a six-foot-plus, gorgeously muscled package.
When management pushes Brit and Stefan together in an effort to gain good press for the beleaguered team, Brit finds that her carefully calculated disinterest doesn’t mask her body's desires. The more she falls for Stefan, the more she risks her career.
Will she be able to have it all—a starting position and the heart of the captain? Or will she lose everything?
This is a very good book about hockey but with a twist. The first female goalie in the NHL. The author gives you what I think is a real look at what the struggles would be on and off the ice. Even in the locker room, and how some of the guys on the team would support her and others would not. This story takes it farther because there are outside people who you think should want her to succeed but are making her life very difficult. On top of everything else she and the captain of the team Stefan are attracted to one another but forces inside of the team are wanting them not to be together. Brit has other issues that she is dealing with from a former team and those are difficult for her to talk about. The issues for her and Stefan both add to the story they don’t take away from it. The characters are well thought of and make you feel like they could be real people. Weather they are the coach Frankie, Stefan’s mother, or the jerk on the team Mike Stewart. I liked that it was based on a female I thought that added to the story and set it apart from the hockey romance books I have read. The only negative I would have is that after meeting the author she is a Sharks fan, but I won’t hold it against her (GO KINGS). A great read take a chance on a new story. I gave it 5 stars.
