Review: Crosscheck by Rebecca Connolly, Heather B. Moore, Sophia Summers

My rating: 5 stars / It was amazing



He’s a hard hitter, she’s a straight shooter. Can they stop the sparks from flying? Do they want to?

Zane Winchester is a beast on the ice, known for racking up penalties and delivering hard blows. No one would suspect the complicated nature of his personal life, or just what it entailed. And no one, not even him, would have suspected what one unexpected encounter with a remarkable woman would do to his life.

Mara Matthews is a regular woman with a regular job and a regular life. Then she meets the father of one of her little students, and regular becomes the last word to describe her life. Zane is intense, funny, charming, and drop dead gorgeous; he shouldn’t pay any attention to someone like her. But Zane isn’t giving up, and Mara doesn’t want him to.

My Review

Another favorite in the Northbrook Hockey Elite series! The chemistry between Zane and Mara is off the charts, and the author skillfully keeps the focus on their feelings and I appreciated the maturity of the characters in controlling their physical attraction in order to strengthen their relationship. Zane is larger than life on and off the ice- known for his aggression in the games, he is a devoted father and friend in life. I loved the natural and realistic development of their friendship and interest in one another, and Zane's adorable daughter Hope allowed the reader to see deeper layers of both the characters. A great balance between romance, hockey, and banter with the other members of the Pit kept the pace steady and swift where it was needed. I'm already looking forward to reading this one again!

Welcome to Northbrook Hockey Elite

Six professional hockey players used to play on an elite club team together, but have all separated and now play in the pro-hockey leagues. Not all of them were friends, yet circumstances bring them together, and for the greater good, maybe they can put aside their differences.
