Brock Lassiter has it all: good looks, good health, and the best job in the world. As a defenseman for the Las Vegas Sidewinders hockey team, he’s the luckiest bastard on earth. If only he could stop getting in trouble. One more screw-up and the team won’t renew his contract. He needs to clean up his act, but he's not interested in a ball and chain—even if it comes in the form of the woman he’s been fantasizing about for years. Hollywood starlet Ashleigh Hunter is living the dream with a role on one of the hottest shows on television. Her life would be complete if only she could adopt the sweet orphan girl she’s fallen in love with, but a single 25-year-old woman who spends the majority of her time in the spotlight may not be able to get custody. When Brock and Ashleigh find themselves accidentally married, they balk. There’s no denying the chemistry between them, but a marriage of convenience? Who does that anymore? Apparently, they do—and it’s not what either of them are expecting.
**Brock is a STANDALONE hockey romance, part of the Sidewinders Series*
Oddly, they were pretty evenly spaced throughout the whole book.
Brock and Ashleigh meet because one of Brock's teammates is dating one of Ashleigh's friends, and the relationship and the attraction worked for me, they seemed real...at first. But, the accidental marriage never felt totally right for me. There were comments made by other characters that seem to imply that neither of them would act like this...so I was never sure if I was supposed to think that this was in character, or completely out of it for them.
There was a really quick turnaround of one of the characters at the end of the book that also didn't work for me. It isn't a major part of the plot, by that point, but it was off.
The book had it's good points and it also had some places where the balance of the characters and story, the plot and what the characters needed to do to make the plot work, just didn't quite mesh.
I didn't totally dislike the story, and it was enjoyable, there were just parts that seemed a little unrealistic, enough so that it took me out of the story.
About the Author:
Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast. Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach. Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles. As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…
