This is book #2, from the series Hat Trick. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to better understand the series I recommend reading this series in order intended by the authors. You can catch the review for Off The Ice, the first book in this series, by clicking here: OFF THE ICE REVIEW.
Emmitt has the opportunity to move up to the NHL, when a trade gives him the ultimate chance. Not having as much family support as he would have liked - he still gives it his all. Then he finds out there is a catch.
Ryu is already a successful goalie who gives his team everything he has. Then the challenge is given to work harder or lose your place. This is normal for the NHL, but what he does not expect is to be attracted to his nemesis. If only he could make the feelings go away.....
Such an exciting and well paced story. I love the banter, the humor, and so much more. The heat starts out sizzling and grows till it is almost a complete bonfire. I was not able to put the book down, and eagerly read this in one sitting. I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
