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 to do the bare minimum, get paid, and find my way back into my father’s good graces.
I will not get involved with a hockey player, no matter how hot. They’re cocky. And obnoxious. I know their type, and I’m not willing to risk getting hurt again. Until Lex Vonne glides into my life looking like sin on a stick.
He thinks I’m a spoiled brat.
I think he’s using me to get ahead.
But the fire I feel when we’re together is like a slapshot to my heart…
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.
I loved everything about Slapshot. Kaitlyn has been burned in the past by guys using her to get to know her famous hockey star dad. So she has no reason to believe that Lex Vonne, aspiring team member of the Moo U hockey team is any different. Lex, however, is one of the good guys and he’d jump through hoops, walk through fire and climb her impenetrable walls to make Kaitlyn see how desperately he is falling for her. Kaitlyn sure is hard to convince and her trust doesn’t come easily but you know once she gives it, Lex will feel like a million bucks.
Their romance was adorable. Their banter was sweet, their chemistry on fire. You get all the goodness that comes with college romance, the awesome sidekicks, some fun times with the rest of the hockey team and the prospect of more books to come in this awesome world. And btw. if you feel that the name Kaitlyn rings a bell? She’s Dylan’s girlfriend in Heartland and not gonna lie, I hated her in that book. I didn’t think I could ever love her but damn, I did! And now I want to re-read Heartland and see if I can see her with different eyes.
Rebecca Jenshak is becoming a go-to name for NA sports romance and her stories don’t need to fear comparison with the big names. If you love Sara Ney, Elle Kennedy or Sarina Bowen’s stories (duh!) you’ll fall in love with these characters.
And if you don’t mind some blushing get the audiobook. Emma Wilder and John Lane’s narration is sizzling eargasm goodness. I’m no stranger to Emma Wilder, who always delivers but John Lane? OMG. I don’t even care what he reads, he can make chemistry formulas sound sexy.
I recommend this feel-good story with lovable characters whole-heartedly, whether you read or you listen to it.
