Hard Limit by Brentha Rothert & Kat Mizera is now live!
Available On All Platforms
St. Louis Mavericks star defender Lars Jansson is dead set against relationships. A new love makes him wonder if maybe he can change, but first, he must confront the truth about who he is.
On the ice, I’m unstoppable. If anyone is in my way, it’s simple—I move them. Hockey is my life, and I don’t have the patience for relationships spanning more than one night. But when I meet a woman so bold and intriguing I can’t help wanting more, I’m blindsided by the revelation that no matter what I do, I may never be enough for her.
One night. That’s all it was supposed to be. But Lars Jansson is larger than life in every way—how could one night be enough? It’s risky for me to see him again, and to let myself fall for the stoic hockey player who is charming in his own way. He thinks it’s his truth that could undo us, but he couldn’t be more wrong about that—it’s mine.

USA Today Bestselling and award-winning author Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she's called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She's never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she'd probably choose the west coast.
A typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max), Kat can usually be found scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) - traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible.
Kat's been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article--a review of a rock concert--for $10 in 1985. Since then she's been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.
As you can guess from her Las Vegas Sidewinders series, Kat loves hockey and occasionally writes articles about her favorite team, the Florida Panthers. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There's something enticing about hockey players and romance...

Review Provided by Author
Hard Limit is the second book in the St Louis Maverick's series and follows Lars, a secondary character from the first books in the series. This book covers a lot of emotional territory and touches are several hard issues while also letting us see Lars attempt a romantic relationship with Sheridan. I don't want to give too much away, but want to tell you why you should read this book!
Sheridan is a "plus size" model in the process of recovering from a serious accident and injury. She is a great example of perserverence and grace while facing challenges. She comes to us with baggage that impacts how she approaches things, but she remains someone that I liked and would have wanted to be friends with.
Lars is a Swedish professional hockey player with a few quirks. I loved watching him figure out that life could be better with someone like Sheridan in it. His interactions with teammates and Sheridan were endearing and cemented his good guy status.
A definitely entertaining meet cute. The developing relationship between Sheridan and Lars was fun to watch. The struggles and difficulties both characters faced made them more "real" and I appreciated the way they dealt with these issues both individually and together.
The secondary cast:
Lars is part of a hockey team, so the secondary cast is a bit larger, but they play key roles, especially in guiding Lars through some of his struggles with understanding women. There are secondary stories from the previous book and glimpses of things that may be coming in the series, all things I am curious about and have me already looking forward to the next book.
Given all that, why only 4 stars?
There are two reasons for that.....
1 - The antagonist. There is an explanation of "why," but it felt rushed and I would have liked more information to really feel like I understand what was behind the scenes.
2-The fact that this is the second book in a potentially large series.
