Title: Misadventures With A Rookie
Author: Toni Aleo
Genre: Hockey Romance
Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defenseman Gus “the Bus” Persson. On the ice or off, he’s never had any trouble scoring, racking up goals―and girls. As the best player in his rookie class and the number-one draft pick of the Malibu Suns, he’s taking his game to the next level and is justifiably full of swagger.
So why does one of the Suns’ ice girls treat him like he’s invisible?
Bo St. James doesn’t have time for rookie hotshots who think their gloves don’t stink. She knows them, she works with them, she trains them. It doesn’t matter that Gus Persson is the hottest newbie she’s ever seen. She knows his type. She’s got big plans of her own, and she’s not going to let some cocky rich kid athlete keep her from her goals.
But there’s a chemistry between them they cannot deny. A lust that burns so hot, it threatens to melt the very ice on which they make their livings. The game has changed for both of them. Together, can these two play to win?
I was really excited about this book when I heard about it. And it felt forever waiting for it after hearing about it. But the wait was worth it and I dove head first into it as soon as it landed on my kindle.
I thought Gus was awesome. Even though he was a bit co(ky, well I can't call it co(ky. But he definitely had enough confidence, because he knew he was good. I loved that he was sweetsweet, kind, caring, and quite funny.
Hmmm Bo...... Bo..... Bo..... Bo.... She took some warming up to, at least for me. I really had to push past her attitude and realize she was just trying to protect herself. But I mainly had to roll my eyes at her antics. But I did warm up to her.
I really enjoyed this book. I will say it was a little predictable of what was happening (trying not to give away any spoilers). And I really kind of miss the team dynamics from the Assissans series. I mean we really only get to know one of his teammates, except for when their playing. Other than that I really enjoyed it.
I'm giving this book 4 Stars out of 5!!!!
