RELEASE BLITZ AND REVIEW – Puck Love by Carmen Jenner

 

Puck Love by Carmen Jenner

Genre: Sports Romance

Release Date: October 3, 2017

Blurb
Stella Hart is the hottest thing in country music. For ten
years, she’s been Nashville’s darling. She’s pure, sweet, and a positive role
model in an industry rife with scandals, sex, and sequins. Men want to own her,
women want to be her—everyone wants a piece of her, and Stella? Well, she wants
out.
As the center for the Calgary Crushers, Van Ross isn’t afraid
of the spotlight, but he doesn’t much like it either. Despite his reputation as
a player, the NHL’s bad boy lives for only two things: the game, and his
younger brother. That’s why when he comes across a country music superstar
seeking refuge at his home in the Canadian Rockies, he’s not too happy with the
media shitstorm this surprise houseguest brings.
With a nationwide manhunt, paparazzi dogging their every
move, producers of a reality TV show baying for blood, and a record label
desperate to see their “good girl” returned safely home, Van and Stella’s lives
are snowballing out of control.
While Van would like nothing more than to show the purest of
them all how well he handles his er … stick, Stella is no puck bunny. Nor is
she as innocent as she’d have the world believe.With chemistry like theirs, tension runs high on and off the
ice, but the end game is the same for both players: line up the puck, take the
shot, and score. If only their hearts understood the play.
Puck fame and fortune.
Puck right and wrong.
Puck love.

Excerpt

“What are you running from?” I say, echoing the me from several months ago when this strange and beautiful creature had arrived on my doorstep, lost, and seeking refuge from a world that might have destroyed a lesser woman. She takes several steps back until there’s nowhere left to go but on top of the counter.

“I’m not running from anything.”
I press against her. She’s stiff as a board. That makes two of us. “I miss you, Stella. I jack it every day thinking about you, sometimes twice a day. I want you.”
“Youcan’t have me, Van.”
“Bullshit,” I hiss. I slide my hand into her hair, and pull her closer. I lean in, but I don’t kiss her. “Tell me you miss me. Tell me you’re thinking about me, too.”
“I don’t . . .” She shakes her head, but her breath is hot and heavy against my face. “I’m not.” 
I close my eyes and rub my cheek against hers. My stubble is likely scratching her delicate skin, but she doesn’t pull away, and I slide my hand under her shirt. She’s braless. I groan. All those long days and nights she tortured me at the cabin by wearing only my flannel shirts with no bra, and probably no panties either, for all I knew. This little cock tease needs a taste of her own medicine.

Whitney’s Four Star Review

I’m always up for a hockey sports romance and I’ve enjoyed Carmen’s books in the past so I was curious to see how I’d like this book. I’m happy to report it was sexy, sweet and entertaining if not a little to dramatic.

A country music star, Stella, ends up seeking shelter with Van, hockey player extraordinaire in his Canadian mountain home. These two argue more than anything initially but eventually Van grows on Stella and his sexiness gets to her. Van is a flirt. Perhaps the biggest flirt on the planet. One thing that was a little overdone for me was his contact ‘sex on the brain’ and innuendo. I get that it’s part of his personality and while it was endearing initially, just a little less would have made him more likeable. That being said, I really did enjoy his character.

Stella is maybe a little hard to sympathize with but once you get to know her, it’s easy to like her. Being in the spotlight for ten years has left her needing to learn to live her life the was SHE wants to and not listen to everyone else around her.

The sexy times in this book are pretty hot and there are several but it didn’t seem like too much. Side characters are equal parts awesome and frustrating. I believe some of Van’s teammates will get books which is great with me! If you enjoy sexy, light reads and/or sports romance, I encourage you to give this a whirl.
