➦This is a second time this month that I’m this giddy over a book. And I swear it’s not even that time of month. But it’s not like that time of month would ever influence my rating.
➦But all jokes aside, I’m trying to be a professional blogger here.
➦I’ve been a fan of Lili Valente’s romcoms for a while now and I was expecting this hockey sports romance to be of the same funny variety. But it is totally different from what I’ve been anticipating! Not to say that it doesn’t contain fun banter, because it does. The sports aspect is present but not very prominent. And it is totally swoony and HOT. God, is it hot.
➦That’s right. You guessed it. My pants were on fire. You’re thinking “God, Maria, you have no shame!”
➦And you’re correct again. #noshame This is definitely not your straight up erotica. It’s just that this particular trope seems to be floating my boat, if you know what I mean. A hot pro hockey player falls for a kindergarten teacher. Like, why would HE ever hook up with her? But he did so
➦But it’s not only the unlikely couple that I loved, it was also the “sex ed” element that got me all happy. Because, when you’re a bit awkward and you need pointers on how to date, why not take advantage of your hot guy friend’s knowledge? Just make sure, you know, not to fall in love with him.
➦So, I know I shouldn’t probably mention other authors on this review, but what the hell, I think Lili Valente and Lauren Blakely are buds. This book sort of kind of reminded me of Mister O, which I loved. It was a similar kind of trope but certainly didn’t lack originality when it came to characters. So if you enjoyed Mister O you will probably love this book too.
