ARC Review: Glove Save (Carolina Comets, #6) by Teagan Hunter. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Glove Save by Teagan Hunter

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve been told I’m the grumpiest goalie in the league, and that may be the case, but who cares when I’m also killing it this season? The Carolina Comets are currently on a record-breaking run, and I intend to keep it that way.

This means the last thing I need is distractions, but my mother didn’t get that memo. She’s getting married, and after the fiasco I caused at her last wedding, I’m required to bring a date.

That would be easy, except for one little thing: I don’t date.

So why is the only person I want to take a single mom who can’t stand me?

We’re a horrible match, and it makes no sense that I’d be into her. But the more time we spend together, the more it’s starting to look like this might be one game I can’t win.

GLOVE SAVE is a standalone hockey romcom. There’s a grumpy goalie who likes to argue with a ten-year-old, a single mom, lots of fun banter, and STEAM galore!

“I don’t do relationships. Period. Ever.”

The Hero: Greer – the grumpy goalie of the Carolina Comets NHL hockey team. Jacob Greer has a mother that is about to be married for the fourth time and a father who has 6 children from five different relationships and has only been married once. Suffice it to say he doesn’t believe in love and never wants to get married.

The heroine: Stevie – single mother to ten year old Macie, who is the light of her life and her reason for living. She got pregnant at nineteen and married Macie’s father, but he turned out to be an alcoholic and an abusive drunk, so she left when Macie was two and hasn’t looked back. The experience soured her on love and marriage and she has no desire to repeat that kind of mistake again.

The Story: Stevie’s sister Scout owns a donut truck where Stevie helps out sometimes in addition to her job at a law office. Her sister is dating Miller from the Carolina Comets. Their romance was detailed in Scoring Chance. Stevie knows Greer but is not fond of him because he is crabby and mean. Add that to the fact that her daughter, who is a Carolina Comets super fan, doesn’t like Greer at all.

“Is he possibly the most gorgeous man I’ve ever laid eyes on? Yes. 
Does it erase what a giant dick he is? Not even a little.”

Though after Greer helps Stevie out of a sticky situation, he talks her into helping him out by being his date to his mothers upcoming wedding. As they see each other more, Greer starts having protective feelings toward both Stevie and Macie. I really liked that side of the grumpy Greer and I loved his interactions with both Stevie and Macie.

There wasn’t a ton of chemistry sizzling between the Greer and Stevie in the first half of the book, though that was probably par for the course since Macie was always around and Stevie was getting over her dislike for Greer and he was getting over his general bad attitude towards everything. Though I liked the way the story moved along at a normal pace. Definitely no insta love here. But right after the 50% mark, things get hot and steamy and the chemistry between the two is everything you want in a romance.

There was also plenty of Teagan Hunters usual wit and humor in the story. I think this was probably my favorite in the series so far. The character development was terrific and there were plenty of supporting characters from prior books, and hopefully future books in the series.

I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
