    The Flipped Page (Susan K)

    Series, but stand alone read; Romance, clean This was a fun read! Cute, light romance, told from alternating points of view. Erik's story is the second in this series, and was interesting to see how he and Madeline came together. Loved the backstory and hockey setting. Madeline's fiance that was not attentive, and was really not loyal or devoted to her made for a sad conflict within the story, but perfect for Erik to finally step up and be the kind of boyfriend that Madeline deserved.

Lovely fall between the two of them, and Erik becoming the man Madeline deserved, needed, and he needed to finally become. Loved the hockey family becoming a real couple. There was a couple living together, and the H was definitely a 'player' before the novel starts for those of you seeking a truly clean read, this might offend you.

    Needs more hockey there are just so many contradictions going on in this book and characters who flip-flop, even their own thoughts. Like stay true to your character, OK? So the coaches daughter moves into town to become a physical therapist, with a serious boyfriend. But don’t worry, you know he’s terrible because he always wears a suit and doesn’t like hockey.

So the coaches daughter moves into town to become a physical therapist, with a serious boyfriend. But don’t worry, you know he’s terrible because he always wears a suit and doesn’t like hockey. Coach, of course, warns the team away from his daughter because clearly, she shouldn’t have any sexual agency. Also, she’s in a committed relationship but the guys have to be told not to hit on her? Are they that morally corrupt? Terrible boyfriend is terrible. And she realizes it. But goes back. And charges her mind. And realizes it again. And thinks they break up but they didn’t. Until, oh no! Turns out he was cheating. Boyfriend done even though he wants to stay in the relationship? Blah blah his affair partner help him get a job and understands him and his field but he still wants her? So Eric has been the resident horn dog and team “player”. Doesn’t want a relationship never. Ok, maybe after hockey. Until Madeline. Then he’s all in. Oh and coincidentally hasn’t hooked up since the season started? Even though he’s the player. Ok. Back and forth a lot. Madeline’s in a relationship. Then she’s not but turns him down. Then people who have known her for 2 months stage an “intervention” and say “oh Eric’s not that bad and you are using your week-ago breakup of a 4-year relationship to hide.” MmmmKay. So they are together and “in love” after a week. Sure. It happens. And warning off, frowny face coach is all for it! And was trying to get them together before she broke up with bad man. Really??? And then Eric says something in a press conference, which he justifies one way to his sister and then says “I was told what to say” to Madeline. Red flag Madi. Also, she’s mad he doesn’t reach out for 2 days. Is your phone broken girl? You know where he lives! Go read him the riot act! Yell, scream, be mad. But no, he comes by, they get engaged after a big non-fight and 2 weeks of dating. And no sex. No sex in a book about the “player”? Mmmmkay. Also using the last names of Malkin and Letang in a hockey book? When they aren’t THE Malkin and Letang? That’s just weird.

    (audiobook) My clean romance of the year–probably! And I haven’t read that clean before. Not even fade to black intimacy. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. And still I kind of liked it. I enjoyed the hockey stuff in the story, either on the ice or in the locker room or the coach’s office. There’s also a lot about the dynamics inside the team and I loved that. It was definitely a hockey romance. Though I’m a bit more dubious about the romance part.

There’s also a lot about the dynamics inside the team and I loved that. It was definitely a hockey romance. Though I’m a bit more dubious about the romance part. Sure, we see a lot of the relationship between Madeline and Erik, I just didn’t feel the romance. It’s not instalove–they talk about their feelings developing for some time–but they bloom in like one week and it’s the love of their life. I didn’t buy it. They could have had so many interactions during the time Madeline was healing Erik’s knee, yet we don’t see them. The actual romance developped off screen. There are some continuity problems too, and inconsistencies–Madeline’s father forbids his team to hit on his daughter, while she’s already with someone, and still sets her up with Erik? Unbelievable. And the (ex-)boyfriend was a cartoon villain without a heart. I don’t understand how long it took for her to realize they should break up. Though Erik was an interesting character–through his relationship with his sister, his insecurities about his future, the persona he must assume vs his real self–I didn’t particularly like Madeline. She was weak, and most of the time the people around her decided for her?. Not a character I could relate to. Narration was half okay. While I loved the male narrator–who’s one of my favorite–it was my first time listening to the female narrator and I didn’t like her voice. Maybe I should try another book by this author, but not the audiobook version. Quickie - Series: Utah Fury Hockey #2 (can be read as a standalone) - Hashtags: #hockey romance #clean romance #opposites attract #playboy - Triggers: serious cheating from ex-boyfriend - Main couple: Madeline Romney & Erik Shultz - Hotness: 0/5 - Romance: 4/5 - + loved the scene of Erik’s injury on ice, it was gripping - – really not a fan of the female narrator

    If you love hockey and are looking for a sweet, quick and entertaining listen, look no further. Match Penalty is what you are looking for. This is book two in the Utah Fury Hockey series and Brittney Mulliner gives us a story to enjoy! Eric is a player, you know the one who is full of himself, and can have his pick of women.

This is book two in the Utah Fury Hockey series and Brittney Mulliner gives us a story to enjoy! Eric is a player, you know the one who is full of himself, and can have his pick of women. When a serious injury occurs on the ice though, life takes a change. His physical therapist is none other than the coach's daughter, Madeline. Beautiful, smart and totally off limits, this girl is the one. But she is involved with another man...and did I say she is the coach's daughter. Mulliner gives us a little of everything. There is love and conflict, a little angst and a slow burning love that makes your heart melt. I love Maddy and her confusion of life. She is easy to relate to. Eric is just the one we all want to find. Easy to talk to, good looking, protective, it's hard for Maddy to resist. The story is an easy listen and will leave you with a smile. Tim Paige and Anneliese Rennie are the narrators and they give us their all. Paige has the attitude down to a tee and can turn the charm on in an instant. His voice fits perfectly to Eric, rugged yet loving, the athlete we all want whispering in our ear. Rennie has a sweetness to her voice and it molds right into the personality of Maddy. She is a little naive, and Rennie nails it with her inflections, and can turn it right to the authoritative therapist. I really enjoyed these two together.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I like the series so far, but I find the drama is somewhat melodramatic. In the first one, the girl kept reading way too much into everything. In this one, the same thing. He said something in a PR conference, which I actually thought was a pretty brilliant way to answer the question without giving up any information and she thinks he doesn't want her anymore? It just seemed like a lot of the drama is forced from situations like that, when really there was enough drama with her ex-boyfriend bein I like the series so far, but I find the drama is somewhat melodramatic.

It just seemed like a lot of the drama is forced from situations like that, when really there was enough drama with her ex-boyfriend being there. I think what really bugs me is that then the guy apologizes. I don't understand why. Having said that, I do like the series. It's a nice cute read.

    Cute These stories are really cute. But so picture perfect that it is not very realistic. Don’t get me wrong the story is sweet and I loved Madi and Erik, but it was so predictable. Madi is a amazing girl that was neglected in her last relationship. She is loving and caring and lost her self worth for a little bit. Erik was a sort of playboy who fell hard and fast. He knew lost and left him a little closed off.

    It was a good book but I didn't Madeline that much. She made the same mistake that Erik in the end but he was the one that took the step to resolve things between them. She also judged him hard even when she knew him enough to know the wasn't the person people said he was. Erik was a sweet pie and didn't give up on her, I liked him. I also feel that their love happened way too fast It was a good book but I didn't Madeline that much.

    Couldn't finish This story is a mess. Spelling is atrocious, the storyline changes from skating to never skated before. I kept thinking it would get better but I quit reading at 60%. The author has a good start but it's like she never proof read any of it. Why would you put something out like this? Couldn't finish This story is a mess.

    Fun hockey read This was a cute and fun read. It read interesting to see characters from the first book in this one! I loved the camaraderie and closeness of the families and the Fury. Although one-night stands are mentioned, no details are given. This was sweet and clean, I'd rate it PG. Fun hockey read This was a cute and fun read.

    Erik’s story I like this series, but I’m struggling with it. We’re following the players in their stories, but there are bad grammar issues and other errors.... she called him Erin instead of Erik. A good editor goes a long way.

    How can you not love a great hockey romance? This story is full of wit and charm, with a wee bit of angst thrown in for fun. Yes, I highly recommend. The narration team knocked it out of the park! I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
