The Playing Game by Aisnley Booth: A Hockey Romance You Cannot Miss!
Just like you, I've been devouring hockey romance books. For one, I simply couldn't put them down but also because I was in search for that book that was both steamy and swoony. Ainsley Booth's The Playing Game, fits the bill and then some!
The Playing Game, featured in Romance Book and Chill's December box. is a steamy hockey romance with all the swoon. This unforgettable story serves low angst, sizzling heat, and a generous dose of he-falls-first goodness. Kieran, the hero, is all in from the start, making it clear that Harper is the one for him, and he's not about to let her slip away again. Love, love a hero who knows what he wants.
"You are, at every turn, the woman for me. And I hope I can keep showing you that I am the right man for you.”
As Kieran steps into the next chapter of his life, he's a pro hockey player embarking on a new season with a new team. Having enjoyed all the perks of hockey stardom, he's now older and wiser and willing to take a chance on love. When he spots Harper, the girl who got away after a scorching one-night stand two years ago at one of his games, Kieran is determined to make sure history doesn't repeat itself. For Harper, he’s willing to open himself to the possibility of something more.
Our heroine, Harper, doesn't trust hockey players and she doesn’t believe they’re capable of changing. She can’t deny how deeply they connected that night two years before, but she knows better than to trust a hockey player. And yet, no matter how hard she tries, she can’t stay away, their chemistry is undeniable. Kieran gives her the patience and space she needs to build trust, and when that trust is finally established, the story unfolds into a cascade of steamy passion.
While there’s tension in the book, there’s no drama nor a third-act breakup - this story is gentle and steamy, the perfect read for a cozy night!
If you’re a fan of hockey romance with low angst, intense passion, and a hero who knows exactly what he wants, "The Playing Game" is a must-read.
The Playing Game: A Hockey Romance (Off The Ice Book 1)
Two years ago, I had the hottest night of my life with a woman who didn’t want to tell me her name—and in a tequila-fueled fever dream, I agreed. She was funny, sexy, and after I got past her brittle shell, secretly very sweet.
In the morning, she was gone.I’ve looked for her in every city I’ve played in since. That night ruined me for anyone else, but the woman I only know as “Jersey Girl” never showed up at another game.
Not until I skate onto brand new ice as part of the NHL’s latest team. And there she is, in the stands at our season opening game. Very carefully not looking at me.
Turns out, she has good reasons why she can’t date a pro hockey player. But I have even better reasons why she can—like, we’re meant for each other, and I’ll do whatever it takes to be the man she needs.
