Delayed Penalty: A Pilots Hockey Novel

Delayed Penalty: A Pilots Hockey Novel by Sophia Henry

She closed her heart long ago. He just wants to open her mind. For fans of Toni Aleo and Sawyer Bennett, the debut of Sophia Henry’s red-hot Detroit Pilots series introduces a hockey team full of complicated men who fight for love.

Auden Berezin is used to losing people: her father, her mother, her first love. Now, just when she believes those childhood wounds are finally healing, she loses something else: the soccer scholarship that was her ticket to college. Scrambling to earn tuition money, she’s relieved to find a gig translating for a Russian minor-league hockey player—until she realizes that he’s the same dangerously sexy jerk who propositioned her at the bar the night before.

Equal parts muscle and scar tissue, Aleksandr Varenkov knows about trauma. Maybe that’s what draws him to Auden. He also lost his family too young, and he channeled the pain into his passions: first hockey, then vodka and women. But all that seems to just melt away the instant he kisses Auden and feels a jolt of desire as sudden and surprising as a hard check on the ice.

After everything she’s been through, Auden can’t bring herself to trust any man, let alone a hot-headed puck jockey with a bad reputation. Aleksandr just hopes she’ll give him a chance—long enough to prove he’s finally met the one who makes him want to change.

*I received this book in exchange for an honest review*
Wow. Just wow. This was a great romance. I loved the up and down drama. The Russian angle, the real feel of a hockey sports romance. Aleksandr is one of my new favorite sports romance heroes! He was strong but still able to be soft. He wasn't a dirty player who is suddenly "redeemed" because of a woman. He had real goals in life, real ambition. The tight family was wonderful to read, especially when it helped Aleks feel better. This was a book that I couldn't put down! Literally, I was tailgating a football game and reading this book! That's how into I was. I could not put this down. The sexy romance was really a sports romance, and not just an athlete in name only. I loved hearing about the playing. I'm a sports fan! That's why I love sports romances! This is certainly one you're going to want to pick up!
