A sexy standalone from New York Times bestseller, Kendall Ryan.
He has everything a man could want. A lucrative hockey contract. Adoring fans. A family who loves him.
But he’s about to throw it all away. Logan Tate’s name is dominating the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Instead of goals and assists, the talented young defenseman has been racking up fights and suspensions.
I work with athletes who are struggling, but Logan’s different. He’s not just going to blow his season, but his entire career. And now he can’t return to the ice until he deals with his issues, but the stubborn man won’t let anyone get close enough to help.
Which is why I packed up and followed him to his family’s property in the remote mountains of Colorado. He can’t avoid me here.
The only problem?
I can’t avoid him either. He’s chopping wood and building fires, rescuing my car from snowy ditches, and inviting me to Sunday dinners with his loud extended family. He’s a whole lot of man, but beneath all those hard edges is an unexpected tenderness.
Tempted or not, I have to stay out of his bed and get him back to the ice . . . no matter how difficult that might be.
This is a sizzling new romance in the Looking to Score series. Each book can be read as a standalone.
THE ROOKIE WIll Leave You Smiling
It's not hard to like Logan Tate, the talented but hot-headed rookie for the Boston Titans hockey team. Yes, he's got attitude to spare, enough to have been put on 'a break' until he can get himself together, but the reasons behind it are understandable. And Summer Campbell does understand, and she's determined to help Logan with his anger issues and get him back on the ice. She's so determined that she's going all in, and showing up at his family home, where he'll be a captive audience, so to speak. And so it begins...
THE ROOKIE is another hit in Kendall Ryan's Looking To Score series. Summer and Logan have off-the-charts chemistry, the setting is a winter wonderland, and who in the world wouldn't love Logan's big, loud, quirky family? I really enjoyed getting to know the Tates, and how quickly Summer slipped right into the thick of things.
Sure, there's some drama, but all in all, this is a quick and engaging read with more uplifting than not, and can be read as a standalone, although I've liked the other books in the series, and would recommend them as well. If you're looking for a sweetly steamy read with great characters and a touch of angst, pick up THE ROOKIE, and enjoy. ❤️
Another player falls!
Another player falls! Logan has had a rough time in his rookie season between the death of his father and a combination of misplaced anger and guilt, and after being suspended for a large number of games, he decides to run home and figure out if hockey is still his future. Summer, one of the sports psychologists, travels to Logan’s hometown to track him down and get him to take a chance on her being his psychologist because she really needs this job. As an only child and still struggling with the death of her own mother, she is focused on landing Logan as her client and fights the attraction she feels to him, even when he pushes her away. He thankfully gives her a chance, and she stays on his family’s property to get to know him more as well as fit in sessions and start helping him compartmentalize. The bulk of this story is these two fighting their feelings and attraction, and by the time Logan realizes it, it’s too late, and Summer has returned home and referred him to a new psychologist. I loved the sweet story this couple had and I can’t wait to see who’s next!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
