This is her shot.
Brit has the chance to make history by being the first female goalie to play for an NHL team, the San Francisco Gold. So, when she is introduced to Stefan, the Gold’s captain, she is determinedly not interested.
Stefan is sexy, charming, and has a publicly documented list of conquests a mile long. Brit is unwilling to risk mixing business with pleasure, even when that business is wrapped up in a six-foot-plus, gorgeously muscled package.
When management pushes Brit and Stefan together in an effort to gain good press for the beleaguered team, Brit finds that her carefully calculated disinterest doesn’t mask her body’s desires. The more she falls for Stefan, the more she risks her career.
Will she be able to have it all—a starting position and the heart of the captain? Or will she lose everything?
“I don’t really do the matching lingerie thing,” she said.
With a sigh and an eye roll, she walked over to him. “I’m not super girlie.”
“Like f*** you’re not.” He was practically sitting on his hands, so he didn’t grab her.
Her lips curved up, and she stopped less than six inches from him. Close enough that her delicate feminine scent coated the air between them.
“You know, I’ve never felt so powerfully sexy before,” she said, stroking a single finger down his shirt, pressing the column of buttons lightly into his skin and setting him on fire, “but hearing your voice go all growly… Damn, I kind of like the way you make me feel, Barie.”
Sweet baby Jesus, she was a menace.
“Me too,” he agreed, even though Brit was making his balls turn permanently blue.
And apparently, she had no plans to stop because she plunked herself down in his lap, leaned close, and pressed her mouth to his.
There wasn’t any preamble. This was hunger, plain and simple.
I am not kidding when I say I enjoyed this book so thoroughly that I neglected to get enough sleep in order to read the first half, then didn’t do much of anything the next day while I finished reading. OK, that’s not entirely true because I did organize a bookshelf, but thanks to narration I was technically still reading at the same time. Blocked reminded me why I enjoyed watching hockey with my Dad so much when I was younger (yeah we were in Dallas so we had the Starz but they had a time when they were pretty good about 16-18years ago! lol) It’s an intensely competitive sport and fights often break out. I’ve never really gotten a behind the scenes look until I read this book. Elise Faber has poured a lot of herself into this one, being a hockey player and fan too, and I greatly enjoyed the wealth of information that was provided to enhance the reader’s experience. Plus, Brit is the kind of girl I want to be best friends with. Stefan was…*fans self*… a book boyfriend like no other, he had the typical male thoughts but a totally unusual, and most admirable, reaction and way of handling certain situations. There were some dark parts to the story that added depth without being triggering, though for some people they still might be uncomfortable, so be warned about the fact that you might experience some feels. I definitely did. Blocked not only made hockey sexy, it made me feel like I was in the thick of it all- action, romance, drama and life lessons included. Grab your copy and hold on tight! ***heat alert level 4– get a cold towel fer ya neck***
Aside from writing bestselling romances, Elise’s passions are chocolate, Star Wars, and hockey (the order depending on the day and how well her team — the Sharks! — are playing). She and her husband also play as much hockey as they can squeeze into their schedules, so much so that their typical date night is spent on the ice. Elise is the mom to two exuberant boys and is thoroughly addicted to Dancing With the Stars.
