Confession #1: I used to be a puck bunny, but after a hockey player broke my heart, I gave up all things hockey. Now I'm just focused on finding a way to pass my math class so I can graduate college.Confession #2: Ryder "Ox" Maddox's deep, sexy voice sends fuzzy tingles through my entire body, and I'm powerless to stop it. Which is a big problem since the hot, surprisingly funny hockey player is my new math tutor. Confession #3: I can't stop thinking about how ripped Ryder is from all his hockey training, and how fun it'd be to cross lines with him. Confession #4: I kissed a hockey player and I liked it. Confession #5: If I'm not careful, I might relapse and fall for Ryder, and then I'll be totally pucked.

I absolutely love this series! Definitely one of my favorite hockey series right now. It has those awesome feels. It always reminds me of Elle Kennedy’s Off Campus book, which are also fantastic. Anyway, this is Linday and Ryder’s book, if you read Anatomy of a Player, you’ve met Lindsay and you probably wanted to know what’s her story (I know I did!). Lindsay Rivera has left her past puck bunny days behind and has turned around her life. She now concentrates on her studies and graduating.
Enter Ryder “Ox” Maddox! Talk about swoony! We’ve also met Ox in the previous books so I have been looking forward to his book as well. He’s a sophomore and a defenseman for the hockey team. He was mesmerized by Lindsay since the moment he saw her and nothing was going to stop him from going for what he wanted.
“I’m not afraid of you, Lindsay Rivera. And I don’t give a damn who you used to be—just in case you were worried.”
I loved them both. I think Lindsay was cool and strong and an overall great heroine. And Ox, well I loved the heck out of him like all the other previous heroes in this series. I totally wish these hockey boys were real (and that I was 15 years younger, lol).
There’s some minor drama and some complications of course. Lindsay is older than Ox. Also, if you’ve read Anatomy you kinda know some of Lindsay’s um past history with Ox’s teammate. And some other underlying family drama that overall will keep you interested till the end.
Like I said, this is one series I absolutely adore and this one absolutely didn’t disappoint. If you’re looking for a cute, light fun summer read, I absolutely recommend!
