    I love how these characters are a little older and established in their careers, which brought a level of maturity to their relationship. They aren't playing games- what you see is what you get, and the honesty is refreshing. The chemistry is so great (and I'll never look at Pac-man the same way again!) and even though there are sparks early on, they both take things at a steady rather than rushed pace.

I also enjoyed the interactions and banter between the hockey teammates and their friends from other teams. A strong addition to the series that made me want to read it again... so I did ;) (I received a complimentary copy of the book; all opinions in this review are my own)

    It's an understatement when I say that I was excited that the three authors writing this series announced they were going to write about hockey after reading all of their baseball books! Yeah, huge understatement!!!!!! I was beyond excited. And now that I've read two of the Northbrook Hockey Elite books, I'm hooked! This is Jax's book. I loved it! It starts off with some action...not necessarily positive action. And news. Hard news. And Jax ends up meeting Meg! And from there the rest is history.

It starts off with some action...not necessarily positive action. And news. Hard news. And Jax ends up meeting Meg! And from there the rest is history. These two have pasts with pain in them. They're trying to trust but it's not easy. Well, that is until they meet each other. The trust comes easier and they get to know each other. I love their story! Meg is so fun! I love when she realizes it's Jax, the hockey player for the Chicago Flyers! Hahahaha! And that her and her grandma love watching him play. Bonus! Meg's grandma is so fun! I love her. She doesn't have too many scenes or speaking moments but the ones she does have are awesome! I giggled so hard after one of her speaking moments. Jax's family life is complicated and it definitely adds plenty of drama and angst to this story. But he stands up for what he believes and loves. I like The Pit group. It's all of his hockey friends from the Northbrook facility growing up. And of course it is all the main characters for each of these books. Rocco was one of my favorite background characters in the book. I'm wondering if he's going to be the main character in the next book since he had a few more scenes in this one than the others of the Northbrook boys. Go grab a copy and read it! I'm never disappointed with a book by this author. If you've read her books, you'll understand. If you haven't get a copy and you'll soon understand. Can't wait for the next books in the series! Content: Clean. Some kisses but nothing further. I received a copy from the author. All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own. Happy Reading!!!

    To say Jax Emerson and Meg Bailey will have an interesting first-meet story to tell their children and grandchildren is a bit of an understatement. It's one that will live on forever--she hit him with her car when he was crossing the street!

Thankfully Jax, a forward for the Chicago Flyers, wasn't seriously injured and he didn't blame Meghan for the accident since he upset and wasn't looking when he walked into the street. Despite the way these two meet, they seem perfect for each other. Both of them have gotten some bad news--Meg's going to have to close her upscale clothing boutique--Meg's Loft and sell strictly online, and Jax discovered some disturbing news about his contract. To say he's not happy is putting it midly , so he's planning to have a serious talk with his agent, his coach and his father about what he's found out. I loved both of the main characters. Jax and Meg are down to earth people who want to do things on their own. They don't want to be rescued by well-meaning people--specifically his dad. I was completely surprised (and worried) when Jax did a went behind Meg's back trying to help her keep the doors to her store open. What a stupid move for a smart guy, but then I loved how he tried to fix it. I also loved the cameo appearances of the McCarthy brothers--Clint and David aka Grizz. Can you tell how much I loved this story? I didn't really care for Jax's father but he seemed to have gotten the message Jax was sending and hopefully he changes for the better. I wasn't sure about his mother at first, but really liked her by the end of the book. What I like about this series is you don't have to know anything about hockey to read and enjoy the books. I loved the Belltown Six Pack series and don't know more than the basics about baseball and I know nothing about hockey. It's all about the relationships. The relationship between the main characters, the relationships between the guys on the team, etc. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. I received a complimentary copy to review.

    I really enjoyed this one. It had a everyday kind of story line, with a bit of the winter feel. It was just well written and had some nice complex characters that I really enjoyed reading about. I just really needed a book like this and this hit the spot. Chaste romance with some nice kisses!

The sports elements were well done, and I will freely admit, I don't follow hockey, but enjoyed it in the context of this novel, the friendships, the team moments, and of course the rivalry between friends, and their camaraderie as they competed, played, and worked to help support their former elite club team was a perfect back story for this romance. Meg, as an honest, hardworking, and beautiful woman, made for a perfect love interest. She stood up to Jax, but supported him in a fun way, and had some great moments with him. Loved the occasions and all that happened in this sweet, fun romantic read. The excitement of the games, action, and family dynamics made it all the more fun to enjoy and read. Perfect read for me to escape with! I received an ARC from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review, my opinions are my own.

    I'm dead. There's something so hot about a big, hulking, slightly possessive, intense, gentle giant of an athlete that just melts me into a puddle of goo and Jax is it. I don't know a lot about hockey...yet...but I felt like I was there, both on and off the ice, and was a background character in the story.

There is also some explosive chemistry that rocked my socks and left me swooning until the next interaction. I also loved the rest of the Northbrook Hockey Elite group and enjoyed their banter, as well as Meg's grandma, and I can't wait to read the rest of the group's stories.

    I am loving this series so far. I knew I would after reading the Belltown Six Pack baseball series because it was so good. Fortunately for me, the characters from the previous series pop up so it's like one big family. This series is set around a group of guys who play hockey. I know absolutely nothing about hockey but it really doesn't matter because the authors do an excellent job of making me think I do! I really need to attend a live professional hockey game someday.

I love the main characters in this book- Jax and Meg. They are both good people who are easy to like. Even when they are both faced with difficult and frustrating circumstances, they are likable. I'm just glad they both survived their first encounter! There is some excellent swoon in this book- yummy kissing and lots of sparking attraction. Who knew Pac-Man could be so hot?! haha This was an excellent book to end the year on. It had all my favorite elements in it. Heather B. Moore is one of my favorite authors and I loved this book.

    Jax Emerson plays hockey for the Chicago Flyers. He's proud of his achievements and his place on the team until he learns that his dad might have bought his way on to the team. While he's fuming about that possibility, he steps into the street and is hit by a car. Meghan Bailey can't believe that she's hit someone and she can't rest until she knows he's okay.

This was a great story for growth, communication, and trust. It also had some pretty amazing kisses. I'm still fanning myself over Meg and Jax's kiss in the arcade. So good!

    I really enjoyed this story - following on from the first book in the series, there are mentions of characters from the previous book, as well as from the series that preceded this one: Bell Town Six Pack. Which also worth reading. The characters are well developed & I couldn’t help but half fall in love with Jax. In fact all of the characters from the other books are loveable. I always enjoy the banter between the characters. It sets such a great tone of team, friendship & family; as well as to I really enjoyed this story - following on from the first book in the series, there are mentions of characters from the previous book, as well as from the series that preceded this one: Bell Town Six Pack.

    What a fun book! I really enjoyed the characters and how they interacted with each other and other characters. Jax was really a cool guy someone who has it all and more. In today's world he could be a very self-centered person. He is popular with the fans, excels in what he does and money to spare. But he was not only kind and down to earth but someone who sees the world outside of his own sphere. Meghan was a great character who has struggles but still reaches out to family and friends.

A good clean read, part of a series but a stand alone as well. Fully recommend it!

From the moment we met Meg and Jax, I knew they were going to become favorites of mine. They were both independent and strong but were also vulnerable and easy to relate to. As for their witty banter and their chemistry? WOWZERS! Talk about sizzling and swoony! One can't help but have a silly permagrin on their face while letting out little dreamy sighs. It's hard not to root for these two and feel all the feels! One of my favorite parts of the book is seeing old friends and meeting new ones. No book is complete without amazing side characters. My only complaint is that the book just ended. Y'all, I hate that! I know I'm going to see them again in the other books but man! You can't leave me hanging like that. It's just mean! Haha. I will definitely be continuing on with these series. It's fun and giving me that much needed break from reality. It's been a few years since I've read a book by Ms. Moore, and I can't figure out why. I always love her books. I guess I better start catching up on them, eh? And I'm not going to lie. This casting was hard. Okay.. okay.. he was the hard one. Haha. But I love them! What do you think?

There were also funny texts between The Pit group members. I had some great laughs. • Jax and Meghan were interesting characters that were easy to relate to. They were so interesting, you wanted to continue reading to discover more details about their personalities. • This was a clean read. But that doesn't take away from the romance or attraction between Jax and Meghan. • This book can be read as a stand-alone, but the minor characters' personalities were presented in more detail in book one. I am glad I had read that book first. I was given an advance copy of this book. My review was voluntary and my opinions were my own. I highly recommend this book to sport romance fans looking for something unique.

Jax struggles throughout the book with feeling successful in his hockey career, feeling good enough for his family (specifically his father) and finding the right woman in his life that just doesn't want his money. Meg is a pretty business woman who is kind and knows what she wants from life. She takes care of her Gramma and spends time with her friends and suddenly finds herself friends with the famous Jax. I liked how their relationship and friendship grew during the story, and how they both were quick to help others-not thinking of themselves. Interesting plot, great characters, steady pace and funny. Clean romance but does include some steamy kiss scenes and a couple swear words throughout the book. I can't wait to read more from this series!

This was a great written story about Jax who is dealing with some unpleasant things going on in his life. And Meg who is struggling to keep her store open.

    Loved this one! Jax is not my type of guy but he made a great hero. Also, Meg isn't someone I could relate to at all, but I still loved her because the book was so we'll written. Once again I learned a little more hockey lingo, fell in love with another couple, and enjoyed a couple surprises in the story.

    Well, I certainly didn’t see that meet-cute coming (and can it be called a meet-cute if someone is hospitalized in the process?). Book number two in the Northbrook Hockey Elite series takes readers to Chicago and into the lives of hockey sensation Jax Emerson and Meghan Baily, a struggling boutique owner.

The chemistry between these two melts the ice. I do have one small complaint, though. As a die-hard hockey fan, it bothered me that in one of the games Jax scores three goals and the hat trick celebration isn’t mentioned at all. In fact, those two words (hat trick) don’t even appear in print. If you’re not a fan of hockey (or maybe just new to the sport), this little quirk probably isn’t going to bother you much. Even so, this hockey romance is heavy on the romance, which managed to sooth my objection. While Powerplay is a standalone book, you are doing yourself a disservice if you don’t start with Faceoff because that’s where you get an idea of the relationships and personalities of the former members of the Northbrook Hockey Elite club. When is book three coming again? For those keeping track, the answer is January 14, 2020.

    I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to think about these hockey themed romances. But I LOVE them! This one was a lot of fun, because the reader was already introduced to Jax, the main character in book 1, Faceoff. And the reader all ready knows a bit about Northbrook Hockey if they’ve read that one as well. You don’t have to read these in order if you don’t want to, but I would recommend it, it’ll just make more sense. Anyway. I liked Jax. He’s a good guy. I thought the way he met Meg was clever.

He walked out in front of her car. And she, feeling terrible that she hit him, bailed him out of the hospital early. Jax is the kind of guy that comes from money, but he doesn’t care at all about it. He lives in a modest home, drives a normal truck and is just a nice guy. Meg is a young woman who is trying to make her small shop work in busy Chicago. She watches hockey, so she knows who Jax is. I loved the way she and her grandma would watch hockey together. And the way she didn’t want anyone to bail her out of trouble that she had caused herself. I really liked the plot of this one. It kept me interested. I would say that this one has a few mild swear words. So just be aware of that. I’m excited for more of these hockey books! I can’t wait to see who else will get their happily ever after. I was sent an e-copy of Powerplay as a gift from the author. All opinions are my own.

    I didn’t want it to end! I love their story. I wondered at the book cover and why we get to see Jax’s face but no one else’s. I’m guessing it’s because of the beard. We had to know how big it was. It makes his character of a formidable hockey player easier to visualize and explains why it’s a topic of conversation. I love Meg. She is a smart and talented businesswoman who is living her dream. She is compassionate and intelligent and real. She doesn’t wear any masks. Those traits are very attract I didn’t want it to end!

I love how she comes into his life when he needs someone the most, and I think Meg needed to be needed. They make a great couple. What would their epilogue look like I wonder? Another great read. Thanks to Rebecca Connolly for my copy of the book.

    I’ve enjoyed this series and the previous Belltown Six Pack series. Hockey isn’t a big sport in Texas but I have lived in two Texas towns with ice hockey teams. I love that this series shows them as big hearted big men. Heather B. Moore brings us Jax and Meg, both of whom want to be independent and do things themselves. As is often the case both need to learn to communicate and also to listen. I enjoyed this book.

    Yay for Athletes! Book 2 of the Northbrook Hockey Elite series, from the Swoony Sports ladies was every as entertaining as I expected from Heather B. Moore, Sophia Summers, and Rebecca Connolly. Jax is a good man who was raised in an affluent family. Meg is a woman who runs into him... literally. I enjoyed their story so much that I’m sad to have to wait another month for my next swoony installment! May have to reread the ones I have...

    Amazing! Yep, this is another amazing, toe-curling sport romance by these talented three ladies! The plot moved along with fun twists and I kept wanting to read just one more chapter. I loved how Jax and Meghan met! And how they realized how perfect they were for each other! This story was way better than any Christmas treat! Skip the calories and read this instead over the holidays.

    This is the second book in the Northbrook Hockey Elite Series and I loved it! I don’t read a lot of contemporary or sport romance novels but I am loving the books in this series! They are very well written and you can’t help but love the characters! I love how the main characters came together after a very unusual beginning. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, even those who know nothing about hockey!

    This was a fun story, although not quite as well-written as the first book in the series. I enjoyed Jax and Meghan's story and thought how they met was really cute. I'm looking forward to reading more books in the series. 3.5 stars. I read an ARC provided by the author/publisher. All opinions are my own.

    I really enjoyed this one. Jax is going through a rough patch when he "runs" into Meg. Their chemistry is off the charts and the kisses are swoon-worthy. There is also some humor (the scene of Jax and Meg at the hospital was cute!) and there are some realistic life hurdles for both of them to go through. I think this one is my favorite of the series so far!

    I'm loving this series! I don't know much about hockey but I love the characters in this book! I love the relationship of the men in The Pit! I love the strong women they find! I can't wait for the next in the series! DELIGHTFUL!
