THE PLAY (Briar U #3) by ELLE KENNEDY

‘I love this sport. I love the ice, the speed, the aggression. I love the physicality of it, the way every bone in my body jars and my teeth rattle when I’m slammed into the boards. Those are messed up things to love, but that’s hockey.’

There’s no doubt about it, Elle Kennedy can write one hell of a witty and sexy sports romance and we’ve been there for them all! We’re always excited another book is on the horizon, always eager to spend more time with her characters, and as The Play was Hunter Davenports story…he of the chaos from last season’s hockey loss, well, excited doesn’t cover it! We loved Hunter Davenport who was a bit of a mystery in previous books, but in The Play, he was a revelation.

Kennedy always manages to get the sports element of her stories spot on and we found ourselves awkwardly laughing at Demi’s fixation with real crime…something we both love too! Catching up with some favourite characters from past books was a lot of fun – it’s always good to see how these guys are faring, and we’re hoping Connor gets his book!

THE TIP-OFF (Smart Jocks #3) by REBECCA JENSHAK

“You are beautiful. Not in spite of the scars, but because of them.”

We absolutely love this college sports romance series. Every book so far has been a winner for us and we just knew Zeke and Gabby’s book was going to be super special! Whilst each book can be read as a standalone we highly recommend a series binge if you’ve not read any yet. This series is so good! The romances are slow burn and there’s the college sports theme. The humour, camaraderie and banter is spot on and the emotional angst is on point. Rebecca Jenshank wrote another blinder in The Tip-Off.

Zeke and Gabby’s love story was so sweet and tender, yet funny and full of chemistry too. The slow burn was quite delicious and it felt true to the characters, right through till the end. Relationships built on mutual respect, friendship and of course an intense attraction is always going to be what true love is made of. It was so lovely to be back with the gang again as we really have taken them all into our hearts. The Tip-Off had real beauty in it too, with a wonderful message from both Zeke and Gabby, who in their own individual way were hiding from the parts of life that make it one crazy emotional ride.

THE RED ZONE by AMIE KNIGHT

We loved this book! The Red Zone is live - See our Review and Excerpt!

‘It was how a girl’s first kiss should be. Romantic. Devastating. Sweet.’

We absolutely love Amie Knight so we were not surprised when we fell in love with her latest story, a sweet and emotional second chance romance. The Red Zone is an addictive sports romance that has a wonderful balance of humour and the emotional after-effects of tragedy. Not only that, it has wonderful humanity and sibling love as well as the importance of friendship and love.

Not only did we love Scarlett, Lukas and sweet Ella. We also fell in love with Lukas’ teammate Mason and we’re intrigued as to just what is going on between Oliver and Hazel. Amie Knight proved once again why she’s an automatic one-click for the hopeless romantics like us and YOU! We call dibs on Lukas and you can have our red skittles…..
