Series: Chinooks Hockey Team, Book 2
This is Jane A little subdued. A little stubborn. A little tired of going out on blind dates with men who drive vans with sofas in the back, Jane Alcott is living the Single Girl existence in the big city. She is also leading a double life. By day, she's a reporter covering the raucous Seattle Chinooks hockey team -- especially their notorious goalie Luc Martineau. By night, she's a writer, secretly creating the scandalous adventures of "Honey Pie" ... the magazine series that has all the men talking. See Jane Spar Luc has made his feelings about parasite reporters -- and Jane -- perfectly clear. But if he thinks he's going to make her life miserable, he'd better think again. See Jane Attract For as long as he can remember, Luc has been single-minded about his career. The last thing he needs is a smart-mouthed, pain-in-the-backside reporter digging into his past and getting in his way. But once the little reporter sheds her black and gray clothes in favor of a sexy red dress, Luc sees that there is more to Jane than originally meets the eye. Maybe it's time to take a risk. Maybe it's time to live out fantasies. Maybe it's time to ... see Jane score.
What I thoughtA second helping of hockey players, I was pretty excited to dive into the second book in this series. I was a little sad to see the first two hockey players we got to meet in the first to be retired and completely out of the picture. But at the same time, it makes the story more believable since all the hockey players aren't getting their own girls too quickly to make it cheesy or eye roll worthy.
Since a bit of time has lapsed, we get to meet a new hunky goalie. I really liked Luc and Jane. Jane was a very different character from Georgeanne and I was glad that it wouldn't seem to be a repeat of similar characters. What I enjoyed most was a slightly different view of the hockey players and the heroine. Being a reporter sure did make some troubles for Jane and I really enjoyed watching her struggle and ultimately overcome those pesky hockey players.
I'm already gearing up for the next book, it's already on hand. This series, so far, is very cute, romantic and definitely a series that I recommend (although to those +18). I've really enjoyed the first two and I imagine I will be making a mad dash to the used bookstore to see if they have the next after book 3.
