Two Man Advantage (Point Shot, #1), Game Misconduct (Point Shot, #2) and Full Strength (Point Shot, #3) by V. L. Locey Series rating: 4*
BLURB (Book 1): Victor Kalinski, all-star forward for the Boston Barracudas, is one of the biggest jerks in professional hockey. Before long his aggressive attitude gets him shipped off to play in the minor leagues.
Furious, he takes to the ice with equal amounts of skill and scathing sarcasm, which doesn’t win him any friends—except for good-natured alternate captain Daniel Arou. He won’t take any of Vic’s crap, and he won’t take no for an answer.
But Vic’s troublemaking is pulling his career one way while Dan’s talent is pushing his in the other. However much they scorch the sheets, they might soon be separated by more than Vic’s fear of being hurt.
BLURB (Book 2): Life has been treating Victor Kalinski well, which is a surprise for the ginger-haired forward with the venomous tongue. His career is somewhat stable, at least for another season. His relationship with Cougars alternate captain Dan Arou is deepening, despite the fact that Daniel has yet to come out of the closet.It’s typical Kalinski luck when a puck bunny he shared a drunken night with several months ago slaps him with a paternity suit. Despite the sizzling passion and painfully heartfelt connection between them, Dan doesn’t take the news well, and heads back to Canada alone. If he wants to make things right and win back the man he loves, Vic has no choice but to swallow his pride—and nobody’s prouder than hotheaded, ego-driven Victor Kalinski.
BLURB (Book 3): What a difference a year makes. Twelve months ago, Victor Kalinski was one of the best and most controversial ice hockey players in the pros. This year he’s playing in the minors, has a paternity case pending, and has just been vindictively outed to the world by one of his own teammates.But he seems to find life in the tiny town of Cayuga to his liking. A large part of that is Dan Arou, the Cougars’ alternate captain and the man who now holds Victor’s heart. Surely venomous, viper-tongued Victor hasn’t been mellowed by love!
Well, perhaps a little. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t intend to get sweet revenge on those who’ve hurt the man he loves and the friends he’s somehow made along the way.
My Series Review: Got the three from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. So I just finished the last book with a nice sense of happiness and contentment at a well written series. At first I wasn't sure I would get into the story as it is told from the main character's POV and he was very abrasive and seemed to be a self centred person in those first few pages. However as the story continued and he met up with Dan Arou my interest was caught and I didn't like having to put the story down. I was lucky that once I finished the first one I could move right on with the life and romance of Victor and Dan and all their problems in book two. This one was as good as the previous one and I was really upset for Dan and Victor for different reasons (read the book to understand). Then of course I went straight on to the last story, all the while hoping it wouldn't let me down. It didn't. The author managed to keep me interested and involved with Victor and Dan and all the other Characters to the point that I was actually hoping not to finish it at the same times as wanting to get to the end and find out how everything gets resolved. So bak to my first comment and that sense of happiness and contentment. If you want to feel the same way (and like romances that stretch over more than one book) you need to get the whole series and spend some time with Victor and Dan. You won't regret it.
