Nathan Barres has always loved hockey more than anything else, and as captain of his team the pressure is on to perform well. When a hook up with Felix Moore stirs feelings he’s not comfortable with, he flees the scene. He’s not expecting to see Felix ever again. So when an injury knocks him out at the start of a new season, he’s less than pleased to see the Winnipeg Wolves newest physical therapist is none other than his one night fling.
Time hasn’t dulled their chemistry, and Nathan’s feelings are back like they’d never left. When Felix proposes a way to burn through the energy between them, how is Nathan supposed to say no. It might be all fun and games to Felix, but Nathan needs to get whatever this is out of his system. Unrequited love? No, thank you.
Meagan Harding is one of those authors that quietly slips under the radar. I had been on the lookout for her, and I was so excited when I saw she was releasing a sports romance novel. Not only am I sucker for Sports Romance- BUT it’s about a HOCKEY player! Under Review ended up (for the most part) meeting my expectations. I was in the mood for a smooth, low angst story to get lost in to.
-Loved the main characters, both were men you’d like to be friends with.
-Friends with benefits. What started as a one night stand slowly progressed to more. I appreciate that the relationship wasn’t rushed; it had a natural progression.
-Great set of secondary characters.
And for most of the way it was a solid 4-4.5 read, as I said this book was exactly what I was the mood for, but then- the dreaded miscommunication took place. I could’ve looked past the misunderstanding IF it’d been resolved quickly but then more miscommunication compiled on top miscommunication. Lack of communication drives me batty, I’m sorry. I just wanted to scream: TALK TO EACH OTHER!!
Overall, I enjoyed Under Review.
-Loved all the characters
I hope this turns into a series, and I’ll continue to be on the watch for more Meagan Harding books.
