    Sweet love story

    This is the second in the Pilot series, featuring the players of the Detroit Pilots AHL team. Gabriella and Landon have had crush on each other since before they were teenagers, but neither know. Landon is there when Gabriella needs a friend and seeing their relationship develop was lovely. Gabriella is a strong woman but being the only female child in her Italian family makes it tough for her to prove herself worthy of her father's exacting demands, especially as she is not allowed to forget an incident when she was 16 that hangs over the family. It was nice to see the introductions of some of Landon's team-mates, some of whom will hopefully get their own stories. Looking forward to book number three in the series. Copy provided by Netgalley.

    Sweet Young First Love

    Power Play is the second book in Sophia Henry's Pilot's Hockey series. Once again it highlights one of the young hockey players in the minor leagues waiting and hoping to be called up to join the NHL. Gabriela (Gaby) Bertucci is a young adult working in her family store in Detroit. While growing up she worked in the family produce market, then store, and is now working in their recently opened art store. She has had a crush on Landon Taylor for years but is sure he has never noticed her. She has followed him on social media and in the press to keep up-to-date on what he is doing. Landon Taylor has been coming to the Bertucci family produce store for years with his parents. Landon recently returned to Detroit to play for the Detroit Pilots minor league hockey team. Landon has also noticed Gaby from afar for years and pays attention to things she has said. He would like to get to know Gaby better if only he could make her believe that. "I pay attention when it comes to you Gaby". Power Play is a sweet love story about first love. We get to see the struggles of Gaby fighting to find a place in her family business when it appears that her father is giving the art store for her oldest brother to run (when he has had nothing to do with the family stores for years). We see the struggle of Landon and the other minor league players fighting to get noticed and called up to an NHL team. Also highlighted is the urban setting of Detroit and how not everyone has abandoned the city in spite of the economic downturn there. Can Gaby and Landon overcome the differences and find happiness and love with each other? While Power Play is part of the Pilot's Hockey series, it can be read as a standalone book. I am looking forward to reading more about other Pilot players in future books. I received an ARC for this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Excellent

    Excellent book. I loved the incredibly sweet romance that developed slowly throughout the story between Gaby and Landon. I also loved seeing how Gaby morphed from the shy reserved girl to the strong confident woman who isn't afraid to stand up for herself. There are plenty of issues and angst for Gaby and Landon to overcome but none of it overwhelms the story, it simply adds to the understanding of the characters which I thought was fantastic. The Bertucci family could be a bit overwhelming but Gaby came through as a shining star! This is a book I highly recommend for everyone's must read list!

    Great read, from new To me author

    Great read. Gaby is a strong woman who is trying to get noticed by her family, that she can run the family business which she has been doing for years. Plus she just happens to find out the Landon who she has known for years and she has had a crush on me have also noticed her. Will it be love or is he just having some fun. Will Things that happened in Gaby's past come between them, will their family come between them or their family issues. This is a new to me author but was a great read and I am looking forward to reading some other books from this author.
