RELEASE BLITZ WITH REVIEW: Playing His Part by Lisa B. Kamps

  This marriage of convenience is about to teach him a big life lesson... Ben Leach, a defenseman for the York Bombers, has everything in life he could want—except happiness. Terminally miserable, he's settled into his rut with the acceptance of someone who knows he doesn't deserve any better—until he runs into an old acquaintance during a quick trip to Las Vegas...a trip that changes everything. Natalie Kenney is on the run thanks to a stalker ex who thinks she belongs to him. Running into her old friend's brother couldn't have come at a better time and, in an impulsive move that surprises her, she accepts his half-hearted attempt to rescue her.
But the rescue comes with consequences. The new couple suddenly finds themselves in positions neither one expected, faced with challenges—and threats—that push them both out of their comfort zones. Will their new relationship lead to something more, or is it merely a marriage in name only? Ben expects it to crash-and-burn like the happiness that always seems to be just out of his reach and when the final buzzer sounds, he needs to decide if he's simply playing a part or if life—and love—is a lot more than a spectator sport. ADD TO YOUR TBR --

This book throws you into the middle of things right off the bat. At first I really didn’t like Ben. I thought he was arrogant and an ahole, other than offering to help out Natalie. But as I read on, my need to know why he was the way he was. It wasn’t until most of the way through that I actually started to like him. They may have done things a bit backwards, but these two spark a flame in one another that burns strong, though they don’t know what that entails as they navigate through their relationship. They are both keeping secrets, and that’s fine, but I felt that not knowing at least one of the secrets was like luring me into a false sense of the book. This is didn’t feel like a romance to me, but the plot kept it moving, and there are feeling involved. I wish I had known a little more background on Ben and Natalie, like showing the reason Natalie needs saving, or even why Ben offers to help. I liked this book in the end, and wish I could give it more stars, but I just couldn’t get a deep enough connection with the characters to fully enjoy this HEA.
