Crosscheck (Northbrook Hockey Elite Book 4) by Rebecca Connolly, Book Review
He’s a hard hitter, she’s a straight shooter. Can they stop the sparks from flying? Do they want to?
Zane Winchester is a beast on the ice, known for racking up penalties and delivering hard blows. No one would suspect the complicated nature of his personal life, or just what it entailed. And no one, not even him, would have suspected what one unexpected encounter with a remarkable woman would do to his life.
Mara Matthews is a regular woman with a regular job and a regular life. Then she meets the father of one of her little students, and regular becomes the last word to describe her life. Zane is intense, funny, charming, and drop dead gorgeous; he shouldn’t pay any attention to someone like her. But Zane isn’t giving up, and Mara doesn’t want him to.
Welcome to Northbrook Hockey Elite!
Six professional hockey players used to play on an elite club team together, but have all separated and now play in the pro-hockey leagues. Not all of them were friends, yet circumstances bring them together, and for the greater good, maybe they can put aside their differences.
I have been waiting for Zane's story, I have been wanting to know his background from what made him tick to his little girl Hope. There was a mystery there that I wanted to figure out. Crosscheck answered all of those questions and took us inside Zane's heart and mind. It was effortless and easy to read, just the pick me up I was looking for! From the hockey, romance, The Pit, and Hope this book had it all. Excitement on the ice, Zane's hard-hitting penalties, romance with Mara, and the bakery Mara's parents own. And that cinnamon roll baking scene, the heat was palpable (I may have swooned)! I love the Northbrook Elite Series and Crosscheck is another fantastic installment! I received a copy of this book for free, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
You can pick up your own copy via Amazon.
