Icy winters, hot tubs, sibling rivalry, family and small town dynamics are wrapped around some great descriptive relationship writing. These triplets aren't perfect, they don't share everything with each other and there are some neat twists along the way. For me, it's a great mix - Plus the men are hard to resist!
I have read all Juliana Stone's books since and never been disappointed.
Billie, a professional hockey player is feisty, stubborn, determined and one third of triplets. Her relationship with her sisters Bobbi and Betty can only be described as tumultuous; each sister is so different, they are each coping with a difficult and saddening family circumstance in their own way and their arguments are explosive! Returning home after the premature end to her successful career, Billie ruffles feathers by joining the men's hockey team and in doing so reacquaints herself with Logan, who she has secretly loved from afar for years. Logan was easy to love, he's sexy, witty, detemined and has the sense to fight for what he wants. He and Billie compliment each other and whilst we all know many a literary romance is uncomplicated, theirs isn't totally unrealistic.
If you like a romance that will make you smile, laugh and tug on the heartstrings a little, I can happily recommend. It narrowly missed out on 5 stars as I felt it ended a little abruptly but I'm hopeful their journey will continue in the next book which focusses on Bobbi.
This is a story of sexism to the nth degree. When Billie Jo returns home from the big leagues recovering from a concussion, she inadvertently draws the ire and disapproval of most of the town when she registers for the Friday Night inter-city hockey league. Not only is she the only female but she is better than every other player in the league. She will become the target of ridicule; sexist misogynistic males; and physical and emotional abuse both on and off the ice.
The writing style is simple. The reader is pulled into a storyline of one family's dysfunctional attitude toward each other. While the `adults' struggle to keep peace, the triplets are at each other's throats constantly. We learn there is some history between the sisters as it pertains to the men or lack of men in their lives but also that this history fuels much of the town's aggression towards Billie Jo.
The characters, for a lack of a better word, are not likeable. The townsfolk belittle, humiliate, assault and insult Billie Jo at every opportunity but when the local hero makes it his mission to offer Billie Jo his support, he learns exactly who his friends are.
The plot revolves around one woman's need to fit in where others believe she doesn't belong. There is some tension between the Billie and Logan, especially as it pertains to their connected pasts-a past that is mired in secrets and betrayal.Read more ›
