This story was sooooo good!!!!! Justin, hockey Pro who is bored with the status quo, struggles with believing he's lovable due to his parents constant bickering over him during his childhood. Elena, sister to Justin's best Friemd Owen... she's an awesome human and the unofficial wrangler for the hockey team they're on. She's also had a crush on Justin since she was in middle school. Sparks fly when they 'collide'. Highly recommend!! It was awesome!
Another "Goal" for Kendall Ryan! I really fallen for this new series. Playing for Keeps was witty, funny, and smokin' hot! The forbidden romance trope will have you craving for what you cannot have. Elise and Justin hit that spot! I loved this story and cannot wait for more to come from this new series! I mean come on, who does not like a bunch of hunks falling for the right girl :)

Elise has had a crush on her brother’s best friend, Justin, for years. When a drunken night of fun brings them together, is Justin willing to test his friendship with his teammate and best friend. Great forbidden romance. I liked how Justin admitted his flaws and tried to atone. Elise is super sassy and sweet. I liked how she unapologetically owned her sexuality. Great dynamics between Elise’s friends and hockey players. Plenty of feels and heat. Great start to this new series.
This was a great story. A charming hero who’s sexy as sin and a smart, fierce heroine who gives him a run for his money. Filled with characters who live, breathe and jump off the page at you. The mix of sexual tension and emotional decisions will lead to you wanting to read this late into the evening. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough, waiting and wanting to get to their HEA! I was gifted with a early copy for a honest opinion.
Sexy, fun and flirty best friend’s sister romance. Elise has had a crush on Justin forever but he’s her brother’s best friend and roommate. She believes he never notices her other than as the kid sister that is always hanging around. Justin doesn’t believe he could be in a relationship after the horrible example his parents set for him as a child. He found a second home with Owen’s family but always knew Elise was off limits. After the hockey team’s championship win, Justin finds Elise in his bedroom, well, he finally acts on his feelings. What will happen in the light of day? Will this be just a casual fling? Or could these two find something more? What happens if Owen finds out? Justin has a heart of gold but struggles to know if love is really possible. Elise is the perfect balance for him and hopefully she can get him to realize that love is worth the risk. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.
This is a friends-to-lovers/brother’s best friend romance between Elise & Justin, and I enjoyed it so much! I laughed, I swooned and I felt for these characters, so what more could I ask for?! I liked Elise, because she was her own woman and fought for Justin. I enjoyed Justin’s journey/character arc in this book. I also enjoyed that it was low on angst; it was just two friends realizing they were perfect for each other. I recommend this book if you want a fun, quick, swoon-worthy romance! I received a copy of this ebook from the author for my honest review.
This author can cross genres like a champ. Her first hockey romance is an A plus! I absolutely loved it!
