Second Shot with #76 by Piper Rayne ~ New Release & Review

Second Shot with #76 by Piper Rayne is now live!

My mom always said you don't get a second shot at making a first impression. I've remembered that my entire career. Especially since I'm one of the few black men who play professional hockey.

I'm calculated and respectful in the way I speak to my coaches, the owners, and the media. I've never taken a risk... until her.

I could blame it on the fact that for once I pushed away the pressure of my career for the ocean waves, the sand, and good times with my new teammates. But those are excuses because the minute I saw her at the airport, something lit up inside me and the best week of my life was spent with her in my bed.

After our week in paradise, we said goodbye, exchanged phone numbers and both assumed that unless one of us was flying through the other's city on the opposite side of the country, our vacation fling was over.

Then one night after practice I see her. She's here. In my city. Telling me she moved here for a job. If that's not fate tell me what is.

I've never wanted a second shot more than I do this time, but she's determined to leave what we were on the island we left behind.

Elizabeth's Review

My rating: 4 of 5 stars - Would Recommend to a Friend

Review Copy Provided by Author

The duo behind Piper Rayne teased us a bit with Cory in the previous book of the Hockey Hotties series (Offside with #55) and it was a pleasure to get to know him better here in his own book.

Cory is a character that I enjoyed getting to know. He's a young guy, but is more mature than he's been behaving. His interactions with family and teammates give great insights into who Cory is, but it was how he treated Ande (his potential love interest) that really made Cory shine. Ande is another character that I liked. It was easy to out myself in her shoes - how would I feel in her situation?

Piper & Rayne have done an excellent job with the Hockey Hottie series of showing some of the different aspects of the world around the Florida Fury hockey team. Not only has this helped incorporate additional secondary characters to let us get to know them better, but it has also added dimensions to the world these players and characters are living in.

As the 5th book in the series, Second Shot with #76 is technically a stand alone as Cory and Ande's story is independent of the other stories in the series. Having said that, I do think that reading the series in order will add to the enjoyment factor.
