In the Penalty Box
by Lynn Rush (Goodreads Author), Kelly Anne Blount (Goodreads Author) 3.79 · Rating details · 86 ratings · 69 reviewsThe Cutting Edge meets Friday Night Lights in a sizzling new hockey romance from bestselling authors Kelly Anne Blount and Lynn Rush.
Figure skating was supposed to be my whole world. But one unlucky injury and now I’m down…but I’m definitely not out. I just need to rehab—a boatload of rehab—and who’d have thought I could do it on the boys’ hockey team?
Of course, the infuriatingly hot captain of the team seems to think I’m nothing but sequins and twirls. What’s a girl to do but put him in his place? Game on.
Hockey is my whole world. I’ve worked my tail off getting my team in a position to win the championships—hopefully in front of major college scouts, too—so what’s a guy to do when a figure skater ends up as our new goalie?
Of course, the distractingly sexy skater thinks I’m nothing but a testosterone-laced competitive streak. And surely she’s only biding her time to heal, then she’s gone. Game over.
I am very pleased to say that my first review of the year is a five star rating review. However, this wasn’t my first book of 2020, I was just on a hiatus in December when I first read this.
I absolutely loved In the Penalty Box. It was the exact kind of hockey romance that I love. I love that it had a girl goalie in it and she was originally a figure skater. I loved all the smack talk in this book and the character growth between the teammates and the forbidden secret romance. That’s also another one of my favorite tropes.
I would most definitely recommend this book to anybody who loves hockey romances. Again, this was a five star rating review. Thank you Netgalley and publishers for allowing me the chance to read and review this. I enjoyed every minute of this and my thoughts and opinions are my own.
Thank you for reading!
