Playing for the Seattle Sockeyes is a dream come true. Yet in less than twenty-four hours, my life is a hot mess, and my dream has turned into a nightmare.
It all starts when I have a one-night stand with my teammate's wife, only I'm not aware she's married, let alone his wife. Now she's stalking me, my teammate hates me, and I'm madly attracted to his sister.
Not a situation I'd wish on anyone, especially me.
I’m not sure how much of this story is really about Gen and Axel, as it is about family and everyday life struggles. There’s a lot of push pull in the beginning. Bria is a very messed up piece of work. There’s a lot about the relationship with Bria before Gen and Axel get together. That part may not be for everyone, it is pretty short lived. Lots of depth to the characters in this story. A bit of drama and some heart stopping moments. HEA.
Very enjoyable with lovable characters!
4.5 stars! I really enjoyed this story and love Axel and Geneva. I love that Jami always comes up with characters that have not your average back story. Geneva and Axel meet in a very unusual way and I was happy when Geneva believed Axel and could look past the biggest mistake of his life and give him a chance. They have more in common than they realize. This is new territory for both of them, being in a relationship, so that is telling as to how much chemistry they have and how much they want to get to know each other. I love Geneva! She is a strong, independent woman, drives a Harley and is all in all pretty cool! Axel is just adorable once you see past the arrogance and cockiness of a rookie hockey player who is finally getting his chance in the big show. He used to be a major player but one look at Geneva and that ended for him. I love how she was able to bring him to his knees like that without even trying.
This book has all the right stuff; awesome story, Interesting characters-both main and supporting, heat, humor and emotion and let’s not forget hockey. Which I am totally missing during this crazy time! This was a really nice escape from the reality that is life right now!
Sockeye Must Read
This is the second book in the scoring series which takes place in Jami Davenports Seattle Sockeye world. I love this book because it is part of a world but can be read as a stand alone. At the beginning it was really hard to like Axel but over the course of the book his love for Geneva helps him change and learn from his colossal mistake. Even though this is was Axel and Genevas story it was great to learn more about Jock. Jock up until this book had been more of a background player with a few blurbs.
This is a book I will read several more times.
As our world stands still the book is a great escape.
