Second Shot With #76 by Piper Rayne


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!
