"A sexy NHL player, a sassy heroine, and a heartfelt romance that kept me engaged from beginning to end!" — NYT bestseller Mia Sheridan
Hockey is my life. And it's a great one. There's an endless line of women, and I get to hang with my best friend Oli. Everything is perfect until she shows up. Oli's twin sister, Flynn—who hates my guts. I don't blame her. I'm part of one of the worst nights of her life.
Now she's next door and seeing her every day is slowly killing me. I wonder if we can ever get back to being the friends we used to be. The way she looks at me sometimes…well, let's just say my hockey stick isn't the only thing that's feeling hard these days.
But if she finds out the secrets I'm keeping, forgiveness will be the last thing on her mind.
Sexy Hockey Romance
BIG STICK is a friends to lovers, second chance romance. It is sweet, funny and filled with sexual tension. Flynn, an attorney just broke up with her cheating boyfriend and now she needs to find a place to live. She quickly realizes she has no other choice but to move in with her twin brother, a professional hockey player with the Chicago Blackhawks. Myles, their childhood friend and also a professional hockey player with the Blackhawks, lives across the hall from Flynn’s brother. When Flynn sees Myles again, she is surprised she still has strong feeling for him. She tries her best to ignore her feelings but it is hard now that she and Myles are seeing each other so often.
Myles has a lot of baggage and even though he is successful, he doesn’t have a lot of confidence. He doesn’t think he is good enough for Flynn and keeps giving her mixed messages.
Flynn and Myles have ghosts from the past and they have a difficult time getting past them. They care about each other but they are afraid to share their feelings. Flynn needs to open her heart and let herself trust Myles. I have to admit, at times Flynn annoyed me because she is so hard on Myles. He is a good guy and he loves her but she keeps pushing him away.
Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book vIa Cocktails and Books and Netgalley. The opinions expressed are my own.
Totally predictable and the characters had no depth. Skipped through the last half.
This is my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. She's been on my TBR for some time.
Myles has been best friends with Oli and Flynn for almost their whole lives but seven years ago, after a terrible tragedy, Flynn walked away from him and hasn't spoken to him since. When Flynn's boyfriend cheats on her and she moves in with her brother, she and Myles are now back in each other's lives and he's hoping for the second chance he's not sure he deserves or is going to get.
This book was a lot more angsty than I was expecting but I really enjoyed it. I had a little bit of hard time with the twist but overall I loved this story. I was almost immediately connected to the characters and immersed in their friendships. I loved all of the side characters and I so badly want them to get their own HEA as well!!
