She isn’t supposed to want him. He isn’t supposed to want her. But wanting each other is inevitable.
Clint McCarthy has finally achieved his dream of playing for a professional hockey program, and is eager to make his mark with his new team. While getting settled in his new city, he happens across Bree Stone, whom he has known for years, with their respective brothers both being in the famed Belltown Six Pack. But for the life of him, he can’t remember Bree ever looking so attractive. Or being so captivating. Or taking over his every waking thought.
In the middle of her graduate degree, Bree has no time or desire for working on her dating life, or lack thereof, but the impossibly handsome Clint McCarthy coming back into her life makes everything complicated. She shouldn’t be focusing on him, or on them, not when her professional future hangs in the balance. But once she hears about Clint’s past with the Northbrook Hockey Elite program, and where that program stands now, Bree just might find a way to make her career, and a future with Clint, come to life.
I loved this book! It’s a clean romance that sucked me in from the very first page.
This one is kind of a spin off from the Belltown Six Pack novels I read last year. If you haven’t read them, do! But this new series isn’t about baseball players like the other series was, this one’s about hockey players. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, I’ve never watched any hockey. But that didn’t matter at all.
I loved that Faceoff features Clint and Bree. They’re both siblings of the Belltown Six Pack members. That made their romance even more special. It felt like the romance moved more quickly because they already knew each other. I really liked the natural way the whole book worked.
The characters were fantastic. I felt as though they could walk off the page. Seriously, I can’t wait to see who else will be included in the rest of the series because I liked this one so much!
If you like clean romance, make time to read this one! I loved it!
I was sent an e-copy of Faceoff as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
