RELEASE BLITZ : Boldly by Elise Faber
Oliver James was at the peak of his career, captain of the Baltimore Breakers, minutes away from winning another Cup. Then one hit had derailed all that.
All he’d ever known was hockey, and he didn’t know where he fit in a world where playing was no longer a possibility. But then he was offered a chance to bring hockey back into his life. A shot at starting over.
The only condition of that second chance was required meetings with the team psychologist, Hazel.
She was exactly the kind of woman he might have once lusted after—beautiful, kind, a body that screamed sex. She made him feel whole, like a man again.
Except, she wasn’t interested in him outside of being a patient.
Well then, Oliver would just have to convince her otherwise.
About the Author:
USA Today bestselling author, Elise Faber, loves chocolate, Star Wars, Harry Potter, 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 changes her hair color more often than some people change their socks, loves sparkly things, and is the mom to two exuberant boys.
This book is nothing like any I’ve read by this author before. Oliver is raw and gritty; I absolutely love him. Hazel has so many relatable qualities that I fell for her too. Together their chemistry is off the charts. And the scene with him holding someone else’s baby is so ovary explodous that I needed to take a breather— and I have a 6 month old, lol.
I do have to say I wasn’t a fan of Hazel’s rambling both aloud and internally. It seemed as though she was having to be interrupted a lot to stop some of her tangents. It seemed Oliver had a few internal left-field ramblings too, but not as often.
I loved how Oliver and Hazel were open and honest, working through their issues instead of just giving up on their building relationship. Oliver has a strong mental health that I admire.
Hockey, prosthetics, prosthesis, therapist, co-workers, ARC for honest review
