The heroine: Queenie – she is the daughter of the General Manager of the NHL Seattle expansion team. Her mother left when she was a baby and she was raised by her father alone, she tends to be a rule breaker and gets into trouble which her father usually has to help her get out of. She was on the verge of getting a psychology degree when her mother told her she would make a horrible psychologist, so she quit school and has since had and got fired from a string of waitress jobs.
The Hero: Ryan Kingston – He is a former boy scout, drinks milk with every meal, wears khaki’s and polo shirts, drives below the speed limit and is an all around good guy. He is also a hot as puck NHL Hockey Goalie.
The Story: On the night King finds out that his sister is really his mother, and Queenie loses yet another service job, they meet in a bar, get drunk and have a one-night stand. Six weeks later, when the season begins, King finds out that Queenie is not only the new assistant to his team’s general manager, but his daughter as well.
Helena Hunting does hockey romance like nobody else and I love all of them. I recently read Little Lies which is a spinoff series from this and the Pucked series and I loved to see Lavender, River and Kodiak from that book as little kids in this one. Queenie from this book also appeared in Little Lies, so it was nice to see her before she had her life together.
The book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. Narration was done by Stella Bloom and Jason Clarke who are two of my favorites. Jason has a deep sexy voice and Stella has a clear voice and she is great at portraying emotion through her voice.
