    Fantastic story

    5 star Review Alexei (Chicago Blaze #5) by Brenda Rothert    Although this is the fifth book in the series, it is a stand alone and it is not necessary to have read the previous books. However, do yourselves a favour if you haven’t read them and one click.   Alexei is so swoon worthy, perhaps because there is so much more to him than just being a bad boy hockey player. His strength and determination in overcoming his self inflicted injuries as well as his addiction was inspiring. I freely admit to numerous snort worthy, laugh out moments whilst reading and I was riveted from the first to the last page.   Brenda Rothert has written a story that you cannot help but become invested in. There were times I laughed and times I cried and on a few occasions I wanted to scream in frustration. However through our it all there was a feeling of hope, strength, and determination in facing down situations that might well knock others out. This is at times an emotional roller coaster of a read as Alexei and his group at the Rehab centre for substance abuse, are forced to face the harsh realities of their addiction.   Dr. Graysen Wells was the perfect heroine for Alexei, her kind, compassionate and beautiful heart was exactly what he needed and deserved; not to mention her tough love.   Initially Alexei expects to sail through his rehab, just planning to tell his therapist what she wants to hear, but Graysen really challenges him to look deep inside and what he finds certainly opens his eyes to a lot of emotions. It also surprisingly opens his heart to a possible relationship. Graysen knows the smart thing to do would be to keep things professional and yet she has a hard time ignoring the feelings that Alexei beings to the surface. Ms. Rothert has written a story that is thought provoking and challenges us as readers. It was extremely well written and she certainly tackled the issues of addiction and rehab with dignity. I cannot wait for the next book in the Chicago Blaze series.

    Perfect addition to a great series

    Alexei is book 5 in the Chicago Blaze Series but it can certainly be read as a stand-alone and its a must read for all lovers of hockey romance as well as romance lovers. Brenda Rothert has given us an emotional roller coaster that will make you smile, have you shearing a tear and at times have you screaming at your e-reader. Alexei is a beautifully written love story that touched me on so many levels, I was captivated by Alexei and his group at the rehab centre and I found myself hoping and praying for the right outcome as this group becomes friends while fighting their own demons and addictions, my heart broke for every single one of them. Alexei is a bad boy hockey player who has been told get yourself straightened out or walk away from the game and it’s Dr Graysen Wells who comes to his rescue by her straight talking and telling him as it is not what he wants to hear, she is beautiful, caring and compassionate and just what he needs but lines will have to be crossed for this couple to get their HEA and will she be prepared to risk her career for feelings she can’t hide for much longer..... This book may take us to some dark places with rehab and addictions but it’s also a wonderful love story and as I got to know Alexei I really connected with him and the reasons for his struggles. This is a great addition to a great series and I highly recommend you read not only this book but the rest of the series as well. Can’t wait to see where this very talented author takes us next .

    Honestly lost for words!

    Im honestly rather lost for words at how wonderful this book was! Yes it talks about addiction but also rehab and recovery and I felt I got to know who Alexei really is as a person! I was absolutely riveted from start to finish that I read it in one sitting! It was just that good! It was a story that you cant help but feel so many emotions as you read and I laughed, shed a few tears as well! This was an incredible addition to the Chicago Blaze series! It was well written, heartfelt and beautiful! Don’t even get me started on how Graysen and Alexei are! Alexei is such a force of a man and you can definitely see how much better he becomes as you read and its all thanks to a certain Dr! Brilliant work Ms Rothert!!

    Alexi

    This was a really beautiful story. I loved the sincerity between Alexi and Greyson and the way their characters developed. The way it covered addictions was also very well handled, and I love hockey stories, it’s such a fast and exciting game and the training and relationships between the players is great. Look forward to reading the next in the series.

    Alexei has an epic comeback.

    Brenda Rothert’s Alexei (Chicago Blaze #5) has an epic comeback. Alexei Petrov is the brother of Chicago Blaze captain Anton (Chicago Blaze #1). Anton didn’t paint a pretty picture of Alexei. After DUI car crash, Alexei is released from the Comets. Blaze team owner, Oliver Durand, offers Alexei the opportunity to play for the Blaze contingent on cleaning up his act, entering rehab, and healing his injuries. Alexei didn’t plan on his feeling for his rehab group leader Dr. Graysen Wells. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult readers. Brenda Rothert does an amazing job with this story. There are a lot of deep topics in this novel: mental health issues, alcoholism, and ethics. Not only do we hear about Alexei’s issues, but we learn stories of the people who are in his rehab group. It is interesting and emotional to see how the various individuals responded and changed throughout the story. It was thought-provoking discovering Alexei’s perspective. I love that Alexei was given a second chance and could heal mentally, physically, and his relationship with his family. The attraction Alexei and Greyson feel for each other was a noteworthy situation. They handled themselves well and became stronger for it. The story does a great job demonstrating how the right people supporting you is important, but ultimately it is up to the individual. Alexei has become my favorite book in the Chicago Blaze series. It was skillfully written. It tied in well with the rest of the series. It was powerful, heartfelt, and it had the perfect ending. I am looking forward to Erik’s (Easy) story next. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
