Author: Sarina Bowen
Series: Hockey Guys
Release Date: October 10, 2023
Cover Design: Elle Maxwell
The furniture district is my personal hell. I don’t know my ass from an ottoman. But when a hot designer comes to my rescue, I realize my problems are bigger than the house I’m trying to furnish.
A scorching kiss over fabric samples makes me question all my choices. But is it too late to change my entire life to get more of them?
I need this gig, but my cocky new client leaves out a couple crucial details:
He doesn’t mention that he’s a famous hockey player. And he doesn’t own up to the way he’s always trying to undress me with his dark, broody eyes.
The man throws out more mixed signals than a broken traffic light. I’ve never been more sexually frustrated in my entire life. I need to back away before I do something stupid, like lose my heart.
Oops. Too late.
2.5 stars so rounding up to 3
Hmmm…I’m not sure how I feel about this book. I’m not sure I would have finished if it wasn’t on audio. I’ve only read a couple of books by this author, so I don’t have much experience with her writing style.
Let me get the easy part out of the way. The vocal performances were good. I liked the voice of Tommaso a little more than the other, but they were both good.
I appreciated the slow burn and the building of their friendship and was ready for a great book. A lot was glossed over or happened off page, but I was there for it. Until the declarations happened off page, the author left so many things still on the table, and there was not much resolution or closure. Am I the only person who was completely disappointed in the ending…to the point that I rewound the book to make sure I hadn’t missed something? It felt like a whole chapter or the epilogue was missing.
The game at the end was truly brutal, the behaviour disgusting, and hard to listen to but then it was just over. I was shocked.
I was thinking I might need to go back and read book one to see if that’s how the first one ended…maybe it’s what she does? And then it’s all made clear later?
I’m really and truly disappointed with the story because of the last one-third (ish) of the book.
