APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Who knew hockey could be so damn sexy? Romance superstar Kendall Ryan kicks off her steamy Looking to Score series by introducing us to Eden Wynn, the new owner of a beloved Boston hockey franchise. Eden’s whip smart, but the team—including its new star player, Alex Braun, Eden’s handsome (and incredibly ripped) ex-boyfriend—doesn’t have much faith in her. And don’t even get us started on the fans, whose misogynistic online abuse gets so bad that the team has to hire a new security team to protect her. That security squad is headed by the tall, brooding Holt Rossi, whom Eden spent a memorable night with back in college. Yeah, you know what’s coming, but boy, does Ryan deliver on both the romance and drama fronts. The Rebel is a reminder that sometimes your dream guy may be hiding in plain sight.
Ryan (Playing for Keeps) launches her Looking to Score series with a steamy story full of delicious detail that's light on angst. Eden Wynn is a wealthy girl from the right side of town, and though Holt Rossi has harbored a crush on her for years, he's never felt worthy of her. When their one college hookup ends with Eden leaving him a note that reads, "This was a mistake," Holt's worst fears are confirmed. Years later, Eden inherits her grandfather's hockey team and must publicly cope with the fact that her ex, Alex Braun, is one of her players. Just when things couldn't get more stressful, her team hires Holt as her new security detail. The last thing Eden needs is a relationship tied to her work, but Holt still has feelings for the girl that got away, and soon enough Eden realizes that she made a mistake all those years ago. Ryan keeps the focus on the feelings rather than action, and the result is a soothing escape that more than makes up for its lack of twists and turns with endearing characters, sizzling sex scenes, and an emotion-driven plot. This is the literary equivalent of comfort food. (Self-published)
Sparks are still flying!
This is book one in the Looking to Score series and it features Eden and Holt. They shared one sinfully sexy night in college. Six years later and they haven’t seen each other since that night, he’s been hired as her bodyguard. The sparks are definitely still flying between them. Holt appears to be a super alpha man but when it comes to Eden, it’s almost as if he’s lost his man card. He’s like a sappy, lovesick teenager. She acts more mature about her feelings for him.
The story line was great. Most of the characters were fantastic. I wish Holt was more manly when it came to any kind of interaction with Eden. There was a lot of information lacking in Alex’s story. I can’t wait to fill in the blanks in book two.
I felt like it wasn’t finished. Like the writer ran out of ideas and ended it. She could have done something with her security where Holy would have to rescue her.
Not worth reading
Boring, with little plot. Reads like a new writer.
