Victor Kalinski, all-star forward for the Boston Barracudas, is one of the biggest jerks in professional hockey. Before long his aggressive attitude gets him shipped off to play in the minor leagues.

Furious, he takes to the ice with equal amounts of skill and scathing sarcasm, which doesn’t win him any friends—except for good-natured alternate captain Daniel Arou. He won’t take any of Vic’s crap, and he won’t take no for an answer.

But Vic’s troublemaking is pulling his career one way while Dan’s talent is pushing his in the other. However much they scorch the sheets, they might soon be separated by more than Vic’s fear of being hurt.

Inside Scoop: This book contains scorching gay sex and a heaping helping of no-holds-barred snark between hot hockey heroes who don’t pull their punches.

Categories: Bisexual, Contemporary, Erotica, M/M Romance, Hockey Romance


Have you ever just watched someone sleep and been petrified and appreciative simultaneously? I know how totally stalker that sounds, but it wasn’t like “I’m a glittery vampire who sits here and watches some underage chick sleeping” weird. Okay, maybe it was a little bit of that kind of weird. I mean, I was lying beside Dan, admiring the hills and valleys of his back as the sun caressed his tanned flesh. His skin was smooth but clammy. The blankets were tangled around his legs. He slept just like he went through life—with energy. His thrashing was what had awoken me, as it had a few times during our road trip. Instead of snapping at him then stealing the covers back, I took this time to visually adore his body. Yeah, I was that fond of it. And him. Rest assured, that terrified me no end.

Tracy's review:

4.5 Stars

*copy provided by author/publisher via Pride Promotions in exchange for an honest review*

After being suspended Vic heads from Boston to Upstate New York, and his new temporary team. He moves from the major to the minor league. He is an angry man, and he takes his anger out on not only on the opposing team members, but on his own team members at times. Being suspended from his Hockey team just makes him even angrier.

When he arrives he is immediately attracted to Dan one of his new teammates. On a road trip they end up sharing more than just a room. Vic never expected to stay in NY for long. He expected to head right back to Boston, and Vic definitely didn't expect to find love. Can he let himself love and be loved?

This was an interesting read. I really hated Vic in the beginning. He wasn't a very likable character. I actually wanted to smack him upside the back of his head on more than one occasion while reading this story.

Ms. Locey performed a minor miracle, and by the end of the story I was just as in love with Vic as Dan was. This was a good book. It flowed well, and moved at a good pace. The story wasn't rushed and took place over a realistic time period.

Vic and Dan had an amazing chemistry, and the sex was HOT and plentiful, but there was a story here too. It was also funny. Even though Vic was a jerk, his antics had me laughing out loud. I'm glad I got to know the sweet side of Vic before this story ended.

So, why not 5 stars? I would have liked for this to be a bit longer. I wanted to see Vic fight his demons and I felt that part of the story was rushed over. I think this book needed a few more chapters. I was left unsatisfied and wanting more at the end of this story. I wasn't ready to let go yet, and I felt there were unresolved issues that weren't dealt with. Even so, this was a great book. It was a quick read that held me captivated from the time I opened it until I finished. This is my first book by this author, but I plan on checking out others.

About the author:
V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, belly laughs, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, a flock of assorted goofy domestic fowl, and two steers: one named after a famous N.H.L. goalie while the other carries the moniker of a 60s pop legend.

When not writing spicy romances, she enjoys spending her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in hand. She can also be found online on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and GoodReads.
