New Release: Hockey Heartthrob by Kat Obie

Hockey Heartthrob (Loving the Puckers Book 5)

Second chances don’t happen every day. I was too focused on trying to break through with my hockey career to really make a move on Nastia Schmetinova when we were at the U together. Imagine my surprise when I learned that she was going to ref our Saint Patrick’s Day game.

I couldn’t make the same mistake twice. I had to give it a shot.

Hopefully I didn’t wait too long to make a move and I won’t sacrifice team unity by following my heart. But I can’t ignore my feelings for her.

Hockey Heartthrob is a second chance romance filled with sexy hockey players who give it their all when it comes to romance. Grab the fifth novella in the Loving the Puckers Series which makes you go “Awww.”


Jaxson wears his heart on his sleeve and goes all out, whether on the ice, wooing the girl, or defending her honor, but what happens when she doesn’t need him to defend her. This new installment of the Loving The Puckers series is a quick sweet read in the ever-expanding world of the Cleaveland Sound hockey team. The next generation plays hard and loves harder. These confident hockey boys and feisty ladies who give as good as they get, leave it all on the ice.

I have a soft spot for the Dads/Uncles in this series,  it is always fun to catch up with The Sound OG. It is also enjoyable to watch this new group of players find their own stories. Jaxson wrestles with his instinctive need to protect the woman he loves while trying to balance it with her need to stand on her own. Nastia, has something to prove having grown up around hyper-competitive hockey players, but she hasn’t quite learned that love trumps all. 

Once again, I appreciated the dynamic of putting a capable woman into the men’s world and the ripples that creates. This is something that is written very well in this world. Typically, I am not a fan of hockey referees (though I do respect the skill it takes to do their jobs), I did like this ref and I am looking forward to more from The Puckers.

Rating: 5 out of 5.
