Word on the ice: the only thing worse than knocking up your teammate’s sister is knocking up his daughter.
I have no business tangling up with Lola Daire. She’s a smart, idealistic, college senior planning to take on Silicon Valley. I’m an angry NHL player with a chip on my shoulder.
She smiles rainbows; I spit fire. She’s a daddy’s girl; I’m the last guy her father wants her to date.
A man with my past and demons will only corrupt a good woman. I know better than to give in to her playful flirting, but when Lola finds herself in a compromising situation, I break the rules to keep her safe.
We have nothing in common, save for the attraction we feel. We have no future, except for the moments that stretch between us. But our desire is insatiable. Our chemistry, off-the-charts.
One night turns into more and our casual understanding takes an unexpected turn.
I may be the cliché bad boy, but my downfall is the good girl with a baby on the way.
This was a great book. I loved the characters!
River + Lola
I can’t believe this is the last Thunderbolts book! I have loved this hockey series with small town vibes so much. Gina has become one of my instant read authors because of it. She has teased us with Lola’s story since book one and it was so fitting to get it as the ending. River’s character development from his first appearance with Maisy and the muffins was perfect. Getting to see what made him so closed off and feeling his struggles to feel loved has made him one of my favorite in the series. I loved Lola from the jump and her proving you can be a mom and a career you are passionate about was everything.
I enjoyed this book as the 6th in the series. It has all the emotional roller coaster feels I needed for a good read. River is a broken, grumpy kind of guy who is beyond private about his personal life. Lola is the daughter of one of his teammates and a college senior who is determined to graduate with the little amount of time she has left of college. They meet with major sparks and after spending the night together things change. This was a great book with all the feels.
I received this ARC through the publisher and I am voluntarily reviewing this book, opinions are my own.
