Hope everyone has made it through the crazy weather if you had any. Texas had ice and with a lot of people not used to driving on ice out, it got a little dangerous. "Taking Shots" by Toni Aleno, is a laugh out loud, heart-breaking, romance with a mix of hockey thrown in. Even if your not a fan of hockey or never watched the sport, you will still like this book, because it is so much more than Hockey, it's about a woman discovering she can be happy.
Here is the summary taken straight from Goodreads...
"Elli Fisher has never thought she was good enough, let it be her job, her weight, her love life, nothing. That is until she meets Shea Adler. After doing a promotional shoot for the NHL team, the Assassins, she meets the hunky hockey player who shoots a puck, shattering her world.
Shea Adler was tired of the life he was living outside of the rink. The girls, the money blowing, the drinking, everything had to stop and it all did when he met Eleanor Fisher. He had never met anyone like her. She was feisty, witty, shy, and simply gorgeous. When he laid eyes on her, it was as if he was taking the hardest hit of his life into the boards, and he had to have her. Elli is a little skeptical of Shea, but he knows that they were meant to be together, and he needed her in his life.
Can Elli throw her insecurities out the window and love Shea with everything inside of her, or will she let a past relationship, and her family ruin any chance of her being happy."
I'm not going to say anything more into the summary, because I don't want to give away any of the surprises you have coming your way. I will say there are some kinda descriptive sex scenes in this book, so if you don't like books with those in them, your not going to like this one. But, if you can handle a couple of scenes than you need to give this book a try. It is a very creative and interesting read and kinda made me want to know about hockey.
Rating: 5/5 Hot mystery hockey players, who might make me watch hockey......
