Second Shot With #76 by Piper Rayne

4 STARS

Release Date: April 19, 2022

SYNOPSIS: My mom always said you don’t get a second shot at making a first impression. I’ve remembered that my entire career. Especially since I’m one of the few black men who play professional hockey. I’m calculated and respectful in the way I speak to my coaches, the owners, and the media. I’ve never taken a risk… until her. I could blame it on the fact that for once I pushed away the pressure of my career for the ocean waves, the sand, and good times with my new teammates. But those are excuses because the minute I saw her at the airport, something lit up inside me and the best week of my life was spent with her in my bed. After our week in paradise, we said goodbye, exchanged phone numbers and both assumed that unless one of us was flying through the other’s city on the opposite side of the country, our vacation fling was over. Then one night after practice I see her. She’s here. In my city. Telling me she moved here for a job. If that’s not fate tell me what is. I’ve never wanted a second shot more than I do this time, but she’s determined to leave what we were on the island we left behind.


This is Book 5 in Piper Rayne’s hockey romance series, Hockey Hotties!


REVIEW: Cory and Ande! We get a glimpse of them in Hat Trick, but in this book we really get to know them. It was interesting seeing Cory’s depth in this one. The media portrayal is definitely not helping him in this one, but luckily he’s dedicated to winning the girl. I also enjoyed seeing Ande try to resist. Piper Rayne brought a little more angst and a plot twist to really pull the reader in during this story! As always, I loved seeing all the other characters and getting to see them together in their relationships. Plus, Kane. I have a feeling his book will be a good one!

Sneaking Around With #34 by Piper Rayne

4.5 STARS

Release Date: March 8, 2022

SYNOPSIS: I have a reputation for being tight-lipped. You learn quick when you become a professional hockey player to be guarded with the media, so I’ve worked hard to cover up the mistakes of my youth. But when I’m traded to the Florida Fury, where my ex–best friend is the starting right wing, I’m forced to confront my past. Ford and I have a lot of history, especially when it comes to his little sister, Imogen. My heart still lurches in my chest when I see her. My hands want to reach out and touch her. My mouth wants to keep apologizing. She’s the only woman who ever made me want more. But she’s also the one who fell victim to my most regrettable decision. I’m not a believer in fate, but I must be back in her world for a reason. I’ve fought for everything I’ve gotten and I’m not backing down from what I know will be the best thing in my life.


This is Book 4 in Piper Rayne’s hockey romance series, Hockey Hotties!


REVIEW: This one was definitely cute. After Ford‘s book, Faking It With #41, I was pretty excited to get Imogen’s story with Warren. I was dying for the details! And once I started reading, I definitely couldn’t put it down. I needed to know what happened between Imogen and Warner in the past, and you only get little snippets as you read throughout the first half of the book. The suspense was killing me in the best way. The situation is presented as something that’s unforgivable, but honestly I think that there are multiple parties involved, and it was kind of like the perfect storm in the worst way. I think once I knew what happened, and then seeing these to spend time together, because they had to for work, made me really happy for the ending that we get. In true Piper Rayne fashion, this one made me feel all of the emotions, and had me laughing my butt off at times–see Dr. Marc for more details. IYKYK. Haha. I’m looking forward to the next two books after meeting the guys in this one! I also liked how the group dynamic for the team changed over the time of this book. These guys, and their partners, create an awesome group dynamic that is so fun to see throughout the books. The next book, Second Shot with #76, comes out April 16th!

The Trouble With #9 by Piper Rayne

4 STARS

Release Date: August 10, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Trouble. One word that comes to mind when someone talks about me. I like to think of it as protection, watching out for the ones I love. But now I’m spending more time in the penalty box than on the ice and the team owner isn’t happy. Finding myself across the room from the hot therapist I kissed on New Year’s Eve only makes me push my problems down further. I want couch time with her but not the kind she’s used to. I decide to lie to her just to finish off my therapy so I can do what I really want—date her—even if she says she doesn’t date hockey players. Just when my therapy sessions are up and I’ve made some headway with Paisley, it’s my parents who throw another wrench in my plans. If I abide by my parent’s wishes to marry the one they’ve chosen, I’ll lose Paisley forever. But if I go against my parents, I’m failing my deceased best friend all over again.


This is Book 2 in Piper Rayne’s new hockey series, Hockey Hotties!


REVIEW: Only Piper Rayne could bring me to read a therapist/client romance. I’m going to be very honest and say that I avoid this trope like the plague (my masters in counseling may have something to do with that). Anyway, enough about me, I really did enjoy this book, for the same reason I always enjoy Piper Rayne books: they make me feel things in the best way. They’re steamy and have characters with depth. Maksim and Paisley complemented each other well, despite their own issues. It was enjoyable watching them overcome the odds with each other. And then there are Maksim, Aiden and Ford. I really do love reading about these friends interacting. It’s always so entertaining. Ford‘s book, Faking It With #41, has all the makings to be a favorite for me, so I cannot wait for that one! Overall, I’m having a lot fun with these hockey romances from Piper Rayne!!

My Lucky #13 by Piper Rayne

4 STARS

Release Date: June 29, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Lucky. The one adjective used to describe my entire hockey career. I prefer to call it hard work, at least I did until my game went to complete crap. I haven’t scored in eight games and my team owner is talking about trading me.  I’ve never believed in superstitions. Never needed one. I suppose I was “lucky” in that way. But now the best way to refer to me is desperate. I’d wear the same socks for an entire year just to be the high-scoring center I used to be. Imagine my surprise when after spending New Year’s Eve with a woman, I score a hat trick in the next game—that’s three goals in one game for you non-hockey lovers. Now, I have to track  her down and bribe her to do it again before every game. Get your mind out of the gutter, I’m not talking about it. I find her and when I get to know her better, I end up spending more time thinking about her than my game, but she’s made it clear she wants no part of me. She’s going to learn that I didn’t become a professional hockey player without having to fight for what I want.


This is Book 1 in Piper Rayne’s new hockey series, Hockey Hotties!


REVIEW: This book was very cute! The superstition aspect was so intriguing, and what Aiden thought he needed to make him better was hilarious!!! I think my favorite part was the friendship that developed between Aiden and Saige. It was really sweet and made me feel like they did belong together. The connection and chemistry between these two pulled me right in. Saige has a messy dating past and I think her hangups were very valid. That being said, Aiden’s agent, who she is dating in the beginning of this book totally should’ve set off her radar like any athlete would. And although Aiden was very aware and attempted to be respectful of their relationship, I think his flirting/comments pushed past the line a few times. As the reader you know more about what is going on and that definitely helped me stay on team Aiden and Saige.

It was absolutely wonderful to see the happy little moment for Frankie, Jax, and Jollie from A Co-Worker’s Crush, since Frankie and Aiden are cousins. Many of the side characters were pretty great, and I am definitely interested to see where the series goes! Maksim’s book, The Trouble with #9, is next and it sounds like it’ll be a wild ride. Ford‘s book has all the makings to be a favorite for me, so I cannot wait for that one! I do love me some hockey hotties.
