The last thing any professional hockey player wants is to be the old man in the game. The guy who doesn’t know when it’s time to retire. Still, I can’t bear the thought of leaving the game.

This past year I’ve reflected on all my regrets, and I told myself that once I retire it’ll be the time to find the right woman. But this is where it gets tricky.

I think I’ve found her—although she’ll deny our connection to anyone who asks. We’ve been sleeping together casually and since I’m still playing hockey, I’ve let her get what she wants—me—whenever she wants.

After being told my career as a player is over, the owner of Florida Fury grants me a shot to stay in the game. A coaching position I didn’t know I wanted until it was offered. The catch? He’s also passing the family business down to his daughter.

Who’s his daughter?

The woman who’s been in and out of my bed for the past year. Which means the woman I intend to make mine is now my new boss.

I hate to see this series go; I have thoroughly enjoyed the Hockey Hotties.  ~ Sharon – Simply Love Books


I really hate to see this series go; I have thoroughly enjoyed the Hockey Hotties.  This was a much anticipated story and pairing and Piper Rayne did them right. Okay, yes I had to suspend belief a bit with their job situations and how everything worked our perfectly but I think sometimes that’s what we all need to know that sometimes everything does work out even when it seems impossible.

Offside with #55 contained a bit of everything that has made this series remarkable; team hijinks, insane chemistry, emotional depth, and loveable characters. Kade and Jana might have seemed like an odd pair but they complemented one another very well and it was obvious Kade could handle a strong woman but also be there when she needed to show her softer side. There were lots of up and downs and starts and stops to the romance in this book, but I think that made it all the more satisfying when things worked out.

I’ll also admit I loved meeting Kane’s brother, Lee and hope that his introduction means there will be a Football Hotties series soon.
