Second Chance at Love were just OK for me. I liked the MCs in Head in the Game, but the sexytimes were light and mostly off page and, despite the "seven weeks later" chapter, I wasn't sure how the long distance thing would work. The HFN felt pretty iffy to me. Second Chance at Love was my least favorite. The writing was mediocre and I felt like it was both really rushed and had pieces missing. Tony hints about legal cases that affected him, but we never get any info about them or why they are mentioned in the first place. Maybe it was a longer story shortened for this anthology? Whatever it was, I didn't feel any connection between the MCs, and Zach's big "ah-ha" moment takes place off page so it feels unrealistic. After being apart 12 years, the MCs spend 3 days together and decide it's true love. There was a lot of telling to back up that claim, but not much showing. It didn't ring true. The whole Mayor thing was weird. Plot points come up out of the blue (Zach hints about his career-ending injury but it's not revealed until well into the story. Same with Zach's former lover - just "PLOP, there it is.") The story just didn't work for me.
In contrast, I really liked Rookie Moves and Secrets. Rookie Moves is the second half of a story that I think was in the 2016 Changing on the Fly anthology. Rookie Moves will make MUCH more sense if you read the first installment (plus, it's good and hot). There's an Instafreebie link right there, so if you haven't read (or like me, didn't remember much about) the first part, do yourself a favor and read it. It's not long and then you can jump right in to Rookie Moves and feel like you're getting the complete story. I liked both shorts so much that I bought a couple of VL Locey's full length books. The writing in Rookie Moves is good, the sexytimes are very hot and the story is believable. Plus, I always love hooker stories. The first story is told from Riley's POV and the second is from Keiffer's, which I liked.
Secrets was also good. Benjy spends half the story being kind of a jerk, but I felt like I could understand why. The story is told from his POV, so we don't get anything about the Big Event that changes everything for Avery and then for Benjy. I wish we could read something from Avery's POV. His story may actually be more interesting than Benjy's. But, I liked the tale overall. I liked how the MCs began to get more caring with each other. The writing was good and all the plot pieces seemed to fit together.
The first anthology had 6 stories. I don't know how the number of pages compares, but 4 stories felt a little short. Still, I felt like this was a good buy and the money goes to a great cause. However, if the book had just been the first two stories, I wouldn't have been impressed. I'm sure other readers will have different favorites. That's the joy of reading.
There were a couple of typos and missing words, but far fewer than many ebooks.
Head in the Game by Jeff Adams
Second Chance at Love by Heather lire
Rookie Moves by VL Locey
Secrets by Rj Scott
They all have hockey in common obviously but they also start you off with one of the main characters needing something in his life. Some kind of connection, understanding, love and acceptance. They all get what they need with the one who is truly meant for them. In return they give what the other needs as well. Another huge plus is, that all of the couples in this anthology, all have a support system that they thought they might never have. People who had their back, stood up for their love. Whether it be a team mate, team, coach or parent. In the end they all found what they needed, whether they knew they needed it to begin with or not. Let's not forget the amazing sex these main characters in these stories had but it all stemmed from a growing love, whether it was obvious at the beginning or not.
Please buy this anthology. The money goes to a great cause and you will thoroughly enjoy each and every story.
Head in the Game by Jeff Adams gives us a lovely age difference romance.
Second Chance at Love by Heather Lire is a romance between two former best friends. This is the one I liked least because too much happen off page.
Rookie Moves by V.L. Locey lets us spend time with Riley and Kieffer and is a really pleasurable romance about an established couple.
Secrets by Rj Scott tells the tale of Avery and Benji which is my favorite of the collection because of the emotionial connection.
