"Sweet and sexy with a delicious side of hot and dirty. Kendall Ryan pens another swoon worthy hockey hero who will undoubtedly melt your heart. - Helena Hunting New York Times bestselling author ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Recovering from a pulled groin muscle isn’t exactly how I planned to spend my much-needed summer vacation.
But I’ll admit, being nursed back to health by my gorgeous friend Bailey, who’s just graduated from medical school, doesn’t exactly sound like a hardship.
We spend a week together at my family’s beach house, a week of swimming and barbecues, a week of entertaining my little cousins and sleeping right across the hall from each other. A week of watching Bailey grow closer with my mom and sisters, and my wacky but lovable grandma. A week of enjoying Bailey tending to me—which is saying something, because it involves a lot of shoving ice packs into my underwear and taping up sore muscles.
She’s funny and kind, and after just being myself for the first time in a long time, I find my walls come tumbling down. But when Bailey says she’s not looking for a relationship, I’m bound and determined to be more than just the fun hookup who sprained his groin a second time—this time with her.
Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all-new standalone novel. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series is for you!
(Books can be enjoyed in any order.)
Asher & Bailey Are the Sweetest
In looking back at my reviews for the previous books in the Hot Jocks series by author Kendall Ryan, I have to smile. It seems that each successive book about these sexy and talented hockey players is my favorite one of the series, and CROSSING THE LINE is no exception. Asher's and Bailey's story is a sweet and sexy friends-to-lovers read that gave me exactly what I wanted, and left me smiling.
All of the guys in these books have that sweet side hidden behind their sexy, sweaty, hockey-playing exteriors, but Asher's goes even a bit deeper. His love of family and pretty quickly evolving realization that he's more than ready to put away his fast-living playboy ways to focus on a relationship with Bailey make him one of my favorite Ice Hawks of them all.
That Bailey is written as a successful and self-aware woman is a definite plus for me. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it, although she's a little bit more of a hard sell in the relationship department than I was expecting. Between the hecka chemistry and the real friendship that she and Asher share, there's just no way that love won't win.
CROSSING THE LINE is a sweet and sizzling read that warmed my romance-loving heart. And, although teammates and friends from earlier books make their appearances, it can be read as a standalone, and will delight, no matter what. If this series isn't already on your TBR, it should be... ❤️
Another great story.
Crossing the Line
It was a sweet story, but that’s about it.
