A pro hockey player with a past. A broadway dancer turned ice girl with hopes for a future and the ice that draws them together despite efforts to keep them apart.
Trane wondered if he will ever be the kind of guy who settles down and has a family. He has too much in his past, too much to deal with in his present to have hope that his future will be anything other than many years as one of the best goalies in the NHL. Until he meets the new ice girl. After their first date, he begins to wonder if there’s a chance for happiness in his life.
Former dancer on Broadway, Janae, can’t seem to get a job anywhere but as an ice girl for the Detroit Comets. Her plan? To make her mark in Detroit so she can get back to Broadway as soon as possible. Things are going well. Her new dance routines for the team become an industry sensation. She predicts she’ll be back in New York within the year. But then she goes out with Trane Jones. And suddenly everything she thought was important might not be.
Welcome to Northbrook Hockey Elite!
Six professional hockey players used to play on an elite club team together, but have all separated and now play in the pro-hockey leagues. Not all of them were friends, yet circumstances bring them together, and for the greater good, maybe they can put aside their differences.

I’m always sad to get to the end of another series. I have loved reading each and every one of these hockey romances. And I actually know a little bit about hockey now too.
There’s something about Trane in this book. I can’t quite put my finger on it. But whatever it is makes him and his story my very favorite of the Northbrook Hockey Elite series. I loved the way he was with Coach Fenwick. The coach was more of a dad to him than his ever was. And he learned some great lessons about being on the ice and off from him. Maybe that’s part of why he was my favorite.
Janae is the woman that catches his attention. She’s a brand new ice girl for his Detroit team. Janae had dreams of Broadway, but they didn’t quite work out as she had expected them too. I loved the way she gave her all to being an ice girl. And she made her group of ice girls famous in their own right. That was one of my favorite parts of this book.
How could I not love the way the Northbrook guys were there for Trane when he needed them most? I love the way they are always available to help the others. Probably another thing they all learned from Coach Fenwick.
The ending of this one was just what I wanted for the end of the series. It was perfect. I know I won’t be sad to see the end of the series for too long, because I can’t wait to see what this group of authors does next!
I was sent an e-copy of Shootout as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.
