My teammate's incredibly sweet and gorgeous younger sister should have been off-limits, but my hockey stick didn't get that memo.

After our team won the championship, and plenty of alcohol, our flirting turned physical and I took her to bed.

Shame sent her running the next morning from our catastrophic mistake. She thinks I don't remember that night—but every detail is burned into my brain so deeply, I’ll never forget. The feel of her in my arms, the soft whimpers of pleasure I coaxed from her perfect lips…

And now I’ve spent three months trying to get her out of my head. Which has been futile, because I’m starting to understand she’s the only girl I’ll ever want. 

I have one shot to show her I can be exactly what she needs, but Elise won’t be easily convinced. 

That’s okay, because I’m good under pressure, and this time, I’m playing for keeps. 

Get ready to meet your new favorite hot jocks in this series of stand-alone novels. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series of athlete romances is perfect for you!

I’m addicted to hockey romances and Kendall Ryan’s new Hot Jocks series has captured my full attention. Playing For Keeps incorporates two of my favorite tropes: friends-to-lovers and the best friend’s little sister. This sexy romantic comedy has all the feels: humor, passion, and love. 

The quick and witty banter between Elise and Justin enhanced their relationship and made it more believable. This couple was easy to like. Justin’s playboy persona was just that… a persona. He’s a good man who’s looking for something more meaningful. It was interesting watching the hero and heroine circle one another and hide their true feelings. But when they finally gave in to them, it was magical.

Ms. Ryan knows how to create characters that readers want to invest their time in. She also knows how to write smoking hot sex scenes that’ll make your toes curl and Playing For Keeps fits the bill to a T. The sexual chemistry between Elise and Justin was smoldering, yet sweet. I couldn’t help but root for this couple to find their happily ever after. I also enjoyed the camaraderie between Elise and her girlfriends. They were there for her when she needed advice and a shoulder to lean on. 

Playing For Keeps is a great start to Ms. Ryan’s Hot Jocks series, so if you haven’t picked up your copy, grab it today while it’s FREE. Jason Clarke and Virginia Rose did an amazing job o narrating this sexy, sweet romantic comedy.
