Hot, hot, hot.....but heavy and complicated
on 28 December 2013
Oriana is the daughter of the owner of the Dartmouth Cobra's Ice Hockey team. She is living with the team Coach. Has a poor relationship with her father, learns that her bf is hooking up with another woman, and that he is only with her at her father's insistence and to get investors into the club. Oriana learns that if she dumps the loser, two-timer BF, her relationship with her father (as bad as it is) will be definitely over. On the sidelines, Max, one of the team players has caught her interest. But Max has a bit of baggage of his own..........
The sex scenes (particularly the group scenes) were steaming hot.
I agree with other reviewers about the use of christian names and surmames and I had to flick back to work out who was who - Perron is Max, by the way, to save you looking that one up!!
Oriana goes from naive innocent (believing herself to be overweight and ugly) to a desired sub with 5 men - sounds slutty, but there is a reason for wishing to appear with all the team players, as she is trying to blackmail her father, and her boyfriend, the team coach. Sort of backfires, but works out for Oriana in the end.
The background storyline should have been simpler, it got confusing, I couldn't follow much of the reasoning and that coupled with the mixing up of the names of the players, frustrated me. The ice hockey sections were good, shame that there was just too much going on to make me want to read more in the series, but the author does do a good sex scene.
The BDSM element of the story was interesting, as it took Oriana (and the reader) on the journey of learning about sex with pain.
Got it as a freebie and would have been a higher score, if only for the confusing background story.
