Publisher Description


I grew up bleeding to survive, so getting paid to play the game of hockey is a life richer than I ever dreamed possible. I’ve got it all, or so I thought until meeting Lucy Cain. My teammate’s sexy sister is a ray of sunshine in my otherwise gray world. Though fighting on the ice is second nature to me, in Lucy I’ve discovered something I’ve never had before—someone worth fighting for. But will she still want me when she sees the beast inside?



I’m leaving my life behind. As soon as I get my brother back on his feet, I’ll start over in a little seaside town to escape the dark secret I discovered about my ex. My plan hits a roadblock, though—a six-foot, inked up Russian one. My brother’s teammate Konstantin is more likely to throw a punch than crack a smile, but once I slip beneath his stoic, steely façade, I never want to let him go. As my past closes in, though, Kon and I aren’t just fighting for our future, but for our lives.

All the feels

I love catching with the St Louis Mavericks and this time it was Kon and Lucy’s story that drew me in and didn’t let me go until I had read the final word. Brenda Rothert and Kat Mizera are two of my favourite authors and together they bring magic to the world of hockey romance.
Kon and Lucy come together because she has arrived to stay with her brother Sawyer who locked away fighting his grief after losing his wife. Determined to help his teammate Kon becomes friends with Lucy but friendship turns to so much more for the man who believes he not worthy of love……
I loved this couple so big and their journey tugged on my heartstrings as I watched them slowly move from friends to lovers. This is a well written, emotional yet entertaining story that will appeal to a wide range of audiences. The St a Louis Mavericks will always come to a teammates rescuer and that adds another dimension to this wonderful series and Hard Luck is a perfect addition to this series.

Loved it

Having read and loved the first two books in the series, I couldn’t wait to dive into Hard Luck, Konstantin (Kon) and Lucy’s story. From the first chapter I was drawn into the story that Brenda Rothert and Kat Mizera wove. The authors write well together, their characters are engaging, often flawed and easy to relate too.

Hard Luck was well written, entertaining and extremely emotional with a storyline that will keep you invested and had me moved to tears. I fell hard and fast for Kon and Lucy, individually and as a couple.

I loved the development of their friendship and the progression of their relationship as they bonded to help Sawyer come to terms with his all consuming grief after the death of his wife.

I adored Kon, he is such a caring, protective man, not just of Lucy but of his teammates. I also loved how Lucy brought out the softer side of the serious Russian; it made me smile.

Can Kon and Lucy come to terms with their past, help Sawyer and find happiness together?
