In my defense, the first time I saw her I didn’t know who she was.
Kind, gorgeous, a little naïve. Ginny brightened my world from day one.
I knew I was no good for her. She was just out of a relationship and I had a reputation for having a new girl in my bed every weekend.
I tried to do the right thing. Honest.
I’m the one who insisted we should be just friends.
That lasted about as long as you’d expect.
But Ginny? She’s the best–best friend, best everything.
So yeah, hooking up with the team captain’s sister wasn’t a great idea.
Would I do it again?
In a heartbeat.
I’ve become such of fan of Rebecca Jenshak’s romances, and Secret Puck has all the components of what I’ve come to expect from her storytelling and the characters she crafts. I also needed a fun read that had low angst and Heath Payne and Ginny Scott’s book is such an entertaining and engaging story.
Heath and Ginny’s relationship statuses when their story begins are completely at odds. She’s newly single and his reputation with the ladies and the number of them who warm his bed every weekend put them on opposite ends. But that doesn’t stop them from being attracted to one another, even when she’s supposed to be off-limits according to Ginny’s brother and Heath’s teammate, Adam.
Heath definitely seems to be a typical college hockey player; he’s a cocky, beyond gorgeous big man on campus and quite the life of the party. But with Ginny, he’s more…don’t get me wrong, he’s still a bit too arrogant, but he’s also playful, sweet, and an all-around good guy, and he likes who he is when he’s with her.
The fact that these two build a friendship first, trying to remain on the platonic level for the sake of both of their relationships with Ginny’s brother illustrates just how into each other they really are, and when they finally decide that the risk is worth it and start secretly dating, even though, as a reader, I know it’s going to get messy, I can’t help but root for the happy couple because they just seem to fit.
Sports romances are some of my absolute favorite reads and Rebecca Jenshak’s new adult books have a great blend of the sweet, the steamy, and the snarky, which are always a must in any romance I read!
