Jett Olsson isn’t looking for anything serious and she’s not looking for anything at all, so why does it seem so hard to keep it professional?
I love my life—the thrill of being on the ice as part of the Arizona Vengeance, the rush of winning, the adoration of the fans. And if that adoration means I don’t have to spend the night alone, well even better. I’m content being single and always ready to mingle.
But the day Emory Holland walks into a Vengeance team meeting my attention is caught like never before. I can tell right away she’s full of smarts and sass, and the fact that she’s hot as hell sure doesn’t hurt either. She immediately shuts down my advances, so I opt for the road less traveled—straight to the friend zone.
My approach works like a charm, and when she invites me into her bed for a no-strings, friends-with-benefits arrangement, I vow to give her everything I have. She’s been hurt before, and if I’m able to help her heal while giving her a spectacularly satisfying time *pats self on back*, then I’ll be happy.
Or at least that’s the lie I keep telling myself as the time ticks down on the final buzzer of our “relationship”. Now the real question is, can I score the winning goal in a game neither of us realized we were playing?
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I’m a HUGE hockey romance fan. I’m not sure when it started but it is one of my favorites. So after getting hooked on Sawyer Bennett’s Cold Fury series in 2016, it was easy to move on to the Arizona Vengeance series in 2018. So when Jett was coming out, the 10th in the series, there was no doubt I would read it. But what did surprise me was how much I enjoyed this one. I have always had a love, like relationship with all of these particular hockey players but I ended up really liking Jett, a lot.
Like I mentioned above, Jett is the 10th book in the Arizona Vengeance series. It is the story of…well…Jett, a player on the Vengeance team. Jett has no interest in settling down. He likes to play the field and meet different women. He also has no interest in having any children. But when he meets Emory, the new Social Media manger for the team, and a single mother, Jett is smitten. Now instead of playing the field he just wants Emory and whatever “baggage” she comes with. Being in a relationship is easier than he expected but does Emory feel the same way?
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started to read Jett. He wasn’t memorable to me from any of the other books so I didn’t figure he would be memorable while carry his own book. But what I found has a guy that was a lot of heart and ready to settle down even though he claimed he wasn’t. Seeing him with Emory and her daughter really showed what kind of guy Jett is and endeared me to him. He was completely different than I expected and that was a welcome surprise. Emory was also a character I loved. She had a lot going on but her daughter came first no matter what.
My one complaint for Jett was that every wasn’t completely fleshed out because it was on the shorter side of a book. I think if it was a little longer it would have been even better for me. But with that said I really enjoyed this addition to the series and I think fans of hickey romances will too. Definitely pick this one up!
