Max by Sawyer Bennett (Review copy provided by Netgalley)
>> Goodreads link, Genre: Romance, ice hockey, M/f
Max is the sixth book in the Cold Fury Hockey series and I can say it totally blew me away, but I love ice hockey and I absolutely loved Max, the character. He was perfect and sadly I probably will never find a guy with his character in real life. LOL. The reason I can’t give this book 4 or even 4,5 stars is the heroine, Julianne.
She was an really, really ungrateful. Whenever Max wanted to help her in any way, she said no. Also the reasons why she pushes him away were just plain, old stupid. I couldn’t deal with her. Max deserved better, even though in the end she got a bit more tolerable.
There was the tiniest bit of drama in this, otherwise it was a cute, light afternoon read.
Rating: 3,5 stars
Going Overboard by L.A. Witt (Review copy provided by NetGalley)
>> Goodreads link, Genre: military, M/M, romance
Going Overboard is the fifth book in the Anchor Point series and the first one of it that I read.
I previously read a different series by L.A. Witt and really liked that and while I also liked the writing style in Going Overboard, I was kind of… do I dare to say it… bored by this book.
I really liked the transition of Dalton and Chris’ friendship to a romantic relationship – I’ve always been a sucker for friend-to-lover books – but that’s about it. Regarding all other aspects of the story I was utterly bored, which makes me kinda sad, because this book had promise.
So all in all this book was just average for me.
Rating: 3 stars
Cross Check by Kelly Jamieson (Review copy provided by Netgalley)
>> Goodreads link, Genre: Romance, ice hockey, new adult, M/f
Cross Check is the second book in the Bayard Hockey series.
I really liked reading it. It had funny and light scenes, but also touched the darker aspects of life. Also its a enemies-to-lover story, I’m totally down for those. Huge fan. The sparks between Ben and Ella were on point.
Although the big fight that Ella and Ben had near the end was kind of stupid and unnecessary in my opinion, but I get the need for it.
Overall it was a good read and who can hate books about ice hockey and romance. I know I can’t. Love me some ice hockey.
Rating: 4 stars
