Now, you can have the books that introduced Victor Kalinski to the world in one reasonably priced boxed set! With over 350 Goodreads reviews and ratings combined, the romance of Vic Kalinski and Dan Arou is one that once read, will never be forgotten. In this three-book set, you’ll get to experience all the passion, sarcasm, hockey action, and romance that reviewers have called “Beautifully Written”, “Surprisingly Heartfelt”, and “Hot! Hot! Hot!”
“The writing in this is snappy and awesome, the story moves at a great pace and oh it’s HOT AS EVER-LOVING HELL. There’s romance that never veers into a too-sappy place, it’s FUNNY and full of great lines right and left, and so engaging that I couldn’t stop reading it. The ending is satisfying, with our characters not becoming perfect people but becoming better together than they are apart, and that’s just about as romantic as it gets.” Avon Gale – Author of the Scoring Chances series
“You’re making my feels all warmy.”
I absolutely LOVED this trilogy! Laugh out loud funny from the word go. I know a few have rated this book down due to the brash nature of one of the MCs Victor, but I just loved him. His one liners were absolutely hilarious and his ability to have me laughing out loud one minute and gasping ‘awww’ the next is commendable. To show a bit more of Victor’s loving side I’ve added some loving quotes to this review.
‘I had come here with nothing but a bad rep and a short fuse, which I still had, but now I had someone who cared whether I stayed or left.’
So this is the three book trilogy and is the story of Victor and Dan. Victor is a professional hockey player and his smart mouth has got him in trouble for a final time. He’s sent down to the minors and the Cayuga Cougars as punishment and to sort his attitude out. Victor has long defined himself as bisexual but isn’t openly out to the league. Whilst in Cayuga he is inexplicably drawn to his teammate Dan. Right from the word go he sees something in Dan he can’t get away from. But with his horrendous childhood and abusive past lingering in the background he struggles to accept his growing feelings for him.
I tugged Dan out onto the floor. People parted like the Red Sea. I took Dan’s right hand in my left and slid my hand around his side until it rested on his lower back. “Who leads?” he asked. “I do for now—you do for the rest of our lives.”
I really don’t want to spoil this story. So I won’t. I adored these two. Dan is one of my favourite MCs of all time. He’s sweet but strong. He knows just how to handle prickly Victor but certainly DOES NOT let him walk all over him either. He’s feisty, loving and awesome, I just loved him. The two of them together are brilliant, they just fit. Their love is real. It’s hard work, they make mistakes but they work through them together.
‘I claimed his mouth. He took my heart.’
Secondary characters in this book are AWESOOMMEEEEE. They’re so well developed and really make this series for me. I loved pretty much all of the hockey players, Dan’s family, Heather and all the other wonderful people involved in this trilogy.
“Dan, just looking at you across a crowded room eases me.”
If you really can’t stomach foul mouthed hockey players this really might not be the book for you but I implore you to give it a chance because it’s so so so much more than that!
