  • Opposites when not quite opposites

    This isn't the first book by this author that I've read. However I think it has become my favorite. Not only do we get a hot single dad hockey player. But we also get a shy, thinks she's awkward, nerdy engineer who loves everything Star Wars. I just adored Angie! She may have felt out of her element most of the time, but that's okay. When she finally stepped out of her safe box she was willing and ready to fight for the people she loved; fight for the family she loved. She became a hero in my eyes. She fought adversity and won. I also loved Max. He was pushed past his limits and overcame them. For the longest time he believed he needed to stay single and put Brayden first. That was until he met Angie and really got to know her. He fell hard and deep. Yeah, he slipped up but he's only human and Angie recognized that to forgive him. I love that these two found each other. Then there's Brayden. Who wouldn't love this kid!! Seriously! I knew I didn't want to give up on this author and I'm glad I didn't. Great book, great family! *I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.*

  • Benched is a heart stealer.

    Right from the start Faber taps into the emotions behind the relationships of her characters. There is always an element of yearning to round out the overpowering attraction. Benched is no exception. Max and Angie have both been lonely too long and too stubborn to admit it. Lucky for them fate doesn't give in easily. When it comes to matters of the heart, they've finally met their match and it comes in the form a 7 year old matchmaker. Max is every bit as cute as he is determined and he plays to win. Benched is a heart stealer that hit all the right moves to score a goal.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Elise Faber is victorious with BENCHED

    Elise Faber is victorious with BENCHED (Gold Hockey #4). In this story, single dad/NHL star Max Montgomery gets his son, Brayden, a dog when he says he wants a new mom. He has no intention of going there again. However, he can’t seem to get Angelica Shallows, the half-sister of the Gold’s Physical Therapist, Mandy, out of his head. This story is suitable for adult readers. It takes place in San Francisco, California. Elise Faber does an admiral job with her character development. She does a fantastic job of getting you in her characters' heads and understanding the reason for their reactions. Angie has been through a lot. Due to multiple circumstances, she is introverted and suffers from anxiety. She is understandably cautious about getting to know her half-sister Mandy. She was hurt by not having her father in her life. I like how Angie is introduced to Brayden. I like Max. He is observant and has good priorities. He gets Angie. He is better off without his ex-wife, Suzanne. I love that Max, Angie, and Brayden are Star Wars fans. The plot was believable and skillfully executed. There were unexpected twists. The book was entertaining throughout. I recommend this book and series to people that enjoy sports romances. The epilogue made me interested in wanting to read the next book, BREAKAWAY. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
