REVIEW - His Game, Her Rules by Charlene Groome
Release Date: 1 September 2014
Charlene Groome begins a spirited new series with this riveting introduction to the Warriors, a hockey team whose star player has game both on and off the ice—until their new skating coach changes everything…
Ty Caldwell is one of the Warriors’ most valuable players—and one of Vancouver’s most eligible bachelors. His moves are part of his charm, so he’s surprised by how strongly he’s drawn to the team’s new skating coach—and even more surprised when she cross-checks his advances. But Ty loves a challenge, and the same persistence he flaunts in the rink may help him off the ice…
Eileen Francis is a world-class skater with a gold medal to prove it. But professional hockey is still a man’s world—so when she lands the job as the interim coach for The Warriors, her curves are way bigger news than her turns. To take control of this bunch of alpha males, Eileen is going to have to play cold as ice and twice as hard. But she’ll have to break her own rules to get the team’s MVP to play up to his fullest potential…
My Opinion 1 STAR
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Kensington Books for an honest review**
Ok so I liked the cover, the synopsis and that the story focused on Ice Hockey players, however I can quite certainly say that those are the only things that I liked about this book.
It is told in the third person, but I never felt any of the emotion of the characters. the book felt wrong and to be quite honest I nearly put the book down a good few times not even wanting to pick it up again. It was so close to being a DNF for me.
The book just feels wrong. Nothing I read made me want to read the next page, I had to push myself. Conversations felt stilted and stiff, nothing flowed and the character just whined too much about her past boyfriend Mario. A pointless part in the story was where he flew over to apologies to her.. this I just felt was wasted space in the story and was not needed.
This unfortunately is not a book that I will be recommending to anyone. Its a disappointing read.
