I have two goals this season:
1. Stay single.
2. Get Rory Sinclair to admit she doesn’t completely hate me.

When I find a stray dog roaming the streets of Seattle, the last place I expect to end up is in the office of a grumpy veterinarian—the one woman who can resist my charm. Twin to my teammate’s girlfriend, Rory is full of fire, but I’m not afraid of her flame.

It doesn’t take long for me to realize that the more time we spend together, the more I want it to last. But no matter how hard I try, Rory only sees me as a playboy, refusing to take me seriously.

One weekend trip to a cabin later, I think I have my in…but only if I can get her to admit her feelings toward me aren’t all bad.

Only one of us will win this face-off, and I intend for it to be me.

FACE OFF is a standalone hockey romance novel. It has a golden retriever hockey player, a grumpy veterinarian who is unamused by him, rowdy teammates, absurd text conversations, the perfect amount of steam, and a happy ending.

My Review

I adored the Carolina Comets series by Teagan Hunter and the Seattle Serpents are just as satisfying of reads so far! The story started off with the texts between the hockey players that had me cracking up as soon as I started reading. Of course this author has a whole series that is called the Texting series, so it is no wonder she can really make that such a fun part of the story. And then, our latest hunky hockey hero named Lucas Lawson rescues a puppy! Awwwwww!

He takes it to the closest vet clinic that is still open on Christmas Eve and it turns out that is where the sister of one of his teammate’s girlfriend works. Rory hates Lawson from the moment she met him. He has the total player vibe and reputation. But of course actually seeing him deal with the puppy and how he deals with that whole situation, she begins to see that maybe the side of him everyone else sees isn’t exactly the true Lucas Lawson.

Of course he’s not sure how he can actually take this puppy, with traveling for hockey, what will he do? He can only rely on the son of his neighber so often. So it happens that Rory gets roped in to helping out. The banter between the Rory and Lawson is fun. He calls her the dog’s mom, which she protests it isn’t true. But eventually, it seems she has to kind of agree the more time she spends with the dog.

Again spending time with the other hockey players and how their season is going, not to mention Rory being a workaholic just like her sister was in the first book, things finally start to hit a good note. And when Lawson realizes his feelings are more, and tells her, of course Rory reacts the way we’d expect. She’s not one for a serious relationship.

So that is basically the final drama in a way, a break up of sorts. However, the author makes it real. Makes how they figure things out not to be the overly dramatic craziness this so often leads to in other romances. And that is why I love this author. She writes stories that have so much I see as real in them, even as they create the fantasy romance we want to see. I can’t wait for the next story, I have an inkling of who it might be!

My only complaint is that I think Daisy was not the best name for the dog. I think they could have come up with someone more fun related to when or how she was found. But that’s my opinion, lol, and not a big deal.

About the Author

TEAGAN HUNTER writes steamy romantic comedies with lots of sarcasm and a side of heart. She loves pizza, hockey, and romance novels, though not in that order. When not writing, you can find her watching entirely too many hours of Supernatural, One Tree Hill, or New Girl. She’s mildly obsessed with Halloween and prefers cooler weather. She married her high school sweetheart, and they currently live in the PNW.
