This book concentrates on Mario McGarretty and his lover, the beautiful Lila. It doesn't have a specific romance plot, Mario and Lila are an established couple, the excitement comes in the form of Lola's son Langley who suddenly gets thrust into their lives.
I was excited to read this as I loved Point Shot but...I liked this but I didn't love it. I just didn't find Mario or Lila particularly interesting as characters. The story is entirely in Mario's POV and Lila is flawless and perfect in his eyes so not much to go on there. The supporting characters were actually more fun, especially the other Cougars - Augie was adorable and I'm excited for his book.
Oh a mention though, Lila being trans was very very well handled, also the sexy parts were imaginative and actually very sensitively written. So some really good parts but not quite the superstar that the previous trilogy.
Lila is also a beautifully drawn character and I loved the interactions between them which demonstrated how perfect she was for the Scots Italian nearing the end of his career.
One thing though, when referring to Scotch, especially an Ardbeg, there's no E!
5*s of intensity & hotness
This is the first in a new series which definitely has me wanting the next book very soon. I am a huge hockey romance fan, and there are clearly a number of the team who will benefit from an HEA.
Ms Locey has created a couple of unique and hugely lovable characters in Mario (Seamus) and Lila. Not hockey royalty, or cat walk models, but two people who have found their place in the world and their own skin, and are ready to live their lives together. Langley is an unexpected addition, but we are drawn in very effectively to the development of the family dynamic.
If you are looking for a book which does an amazing job of reminding us that we come in all colours of the rainbow, and that love is a human right not wrong, then this will be a worthy addition to your collection. Thank you Ms Locey.

I love reading series in order and Snap Shot is the first book in the Cayuga Cougars series. What I didn't realize at the time is that the two MCs (main characters) were introduced in the Point Shot Trilogy series. While Snap Shot totally stands alone just fine, I really wish that I had read the Point Shot Trilogy first. (Note: at the time of this writing the Point Shot Trilogy boxed set is on sale for a fantastic price on Amazon.)
Snap Shot is about hockey player, Mario (Seamus) McGarrity and Madame Lila, a transgender woman he is in love with. I've never read a story about a transgender woman before so it was somewhat educational as well as a pleasurable reading experience. I definitely need to do a bit more reading so I can become more educated about transgender people.
Mario and Lila's relationship is strained because of the distance between where they live. It becomes further strained when Lila's teenage son comes to live with her. Mario has never wanted children and he doesn't know how to Langley at first but he soon learns.
I enjoyed reading this story because it was something new to me. I also liked all of the characters and the emotions the story made me feel. I enjoyed Mario's relationship with a young team member, August Miles, who is the MC of the next book in this series, Open Net.
I will definitely be reading more books by V. L. Locey.
