    Myles and Flynn's story

    I thought this was a good read. The writing flowed well for the most part, but I did feel like it lagged a little sometimes. Myles and Flynn were good together, and they had good chemistry. Myles was way too hard on himself, but I can understand given the circumstances of his childhood. I felt like Flynn overreacted to pretty much everything, even though she's touted as being the "strong one". Everything is resolved fairly easily though, and Myles and Flynn get their HEA. I think Oli and Sloane's story will be a good one! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book.

    Sweet and Funny

    BIG STICK is a friends to lovers, second chance romance. It is sweet, funny and filled with sexual tension. Flynn, an attorney just broke up with her cheating boyfriend and now she needs to find a place to live. She quickly realizes she has no other choice but to move in with her twin brother, a professional hockey player with the Chicago Blackhawks. Myles, their childhood friend and also a professional hockey player with the Blackhawks, lives across the hall from Flynn’s brother. When Flynn sees Myles again, she is surprised she still has strong feeling for him. She tries her best to ignore her feelings but it is hard now that she and Myles are seeing each other so often. Myles has a lot of baggage and even though he is successful, he doesn’t have a lot of confidence. He doesn’t think he is good enough for Flynn and keeps giving her mixed messages. Flynn and Myles have ghosts from the past and they have a difficult time getting past them. They care about each other but they are afraid to share their feelings. Flynn needs to open her heart and let herself trust Myles. I have to admit, at times Flynn annoyed me because she is so hard on Myles. He is a good guy and he loves her but she keeps pushing him away.

    R.C. Stephens scores with BIG STICK.

    R.C. Stephens scores with BIG STICK. As kids, Myles Sanders and twin brother and sister Oliver and Flynn Russell were inseparable. After moving to different cites, Myles and Flynn had a falling out. Seven years later, Myles and Oli are still best friends living their dream of playing professional hockey together in Chicago. Flynn relocates to Chicago to be near her brother; consequently, needing to resolve the issues she has with Myles. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult audiences. I loved R.C. Stephens’ BIG STICK. Being a Chicagoan, I appreciate that the story takes place there. I also respected that Myles and Oli played for my favorite team the Blackhawks. I like Myles, Oli, and Flynn. They are realistic and convincing characters. A tragedy caused some unresolved issues for them. Myles had a tough childhood and relied on the Russell family for support. Flynn believed in Myles and is a big part of the reason he is as successful as he is. Myles and Flynn have amazing chemistry. You truly want to see them work things out. BIG STICK is a heartfelt and enjoyable read. The story was believable and skillfully-executed. The hockey scenes were easy to visualize and credible. I like the Peter Pan nick names. The Epilogue felt well concluded. This is the first book that I have read by R.C. Stephens. I enjoyed her writing style and plan on continue following the Big Stick series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    4.25⭐

    Big Stick was a really enjoyable read. That not only mixed best friends to lovers and second chance romance really well. But was very entertaining, engaging and easy to read. Plus, it had the perfect amount of heat, humour, angst and sweetness to really hold my interest. As well as lots of likable secondary characters, including the main two Myles and Flynn. Not to mention Flynn's twin brother Oli and best friend Sloane. And as a new author to me, I would definitely read more from R.C Stephens in the future. Especially if the story was to feature Oli and or Sloane. **I was kindly provided with an ARC by Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review**

    Keeps you wanting more.

    4 Stars Review by Morgen Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Big Stick by R.C. Stephens is a standalone about finding a way to let go of your past. Flynn is strong, independent, intelligent, and kind. Tragedy struck her family when she was younger. Now she keeps herself busy and focuses all her energy on work. Myles is loyal, protective, sweet, and a charmer. He’s enjoying a career in the NHL with his best friend Oliver, Flynn’s brother. They’ve been playing hockey together for as long as he can remember. After Flynn catches her boyfriend cheating on her in their home she decides to move in with her brother. Flynn, Oliver, and Myles were the best of friends when they were younger. She quickly realizes his next door neighbor is Myles, someone she’d rather forget. Years ago something happened that changed all their lives, they refuse to talk about it. Old feelings resurface, but when secrets come out can she finally let go of the past or will she hold on to her anger? I love that it was told from both Flynn and Myles’ POV. We see the story better and get a more in depth look at their motivations. Each faces their own inner struggles when trying to ignore their mutual attraction. Seeing it gives you a stronger connection to the characters. The story unravels piece by piece keeping you wanting more. The suspense of what could happen next hooked me. The chemistry between Flynn and Myles is off the charts. With each touch their passion burns brighter, and each kiss makes a silent plea for more. Once they finally give in the need for each other just grows. Watching them grow closer warmed my heart. Their connection from when they were younger is stronger than ever. I really enjoyed Oliver’s character as well. He loves them both and finds himself stuck in the middle. He just wants them to be happy. I would recommend this if you enjoy second chances, sexy hockey players, protective alphas, or sassy women.
