    Loved it

    LOVED it!! It's a fun, sexy, feel good story that had me amused and entertained throughout. Whitney and her inner dialogue were hilarious. She's tired of getting mixed up with players that end up cheating on her. Being the determined journalist she is, she's determined to write an expose' to help other women who are also missing the "playdar"gene. Her test subject is none other than the biggest player on the hockey team Hudson Decker. Spending time with him without getting sucked in by his charm might be a little more than she can handle though! This is a fantastic NA story and one I highly recommend.

    Make me crazy

    This is book # 2 in the Taking Shots series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. It is more enjoyable and easier to understand, however, if you read it in the order the author intended. Whitney and Hudson meet at a party. When they meet again, she is a sports reporter covering his game and looking dowdy and different. She wants to be taken seriously. Hudson finds himself attracted to more than her looks. He likes her laugh, her brain, her personality. He wants to be around her all the time. Is this what love is? He has never wanted a relationship. Maybe he could try? They both have pasts that have hurt them. They both have trust issues and so much to gain. They are also both keeping secrets. What happens when the truth is told? Such an incredible story! I loved the first book in the series so I was not real surprised to love this one also. Crazy funny and with such incredible sweetness. ***This ARC copy was given by Netgalley.com and its publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Love this series

    I loved the first book. Now I love this one even more. This story is a great example of how parents can mess with their child's self-esteem which pretty much messes with all their future relationships. But Hudson and Whitney prove that if you realize the mess you're in, half the battle is won, and overcoming the rest is easier if you have that one person in your corner who gets you. As long as you stick with honesty and don't let your baggage get in the way. ARC provided in exchange for honest review

    funny and sexy new adult sports romance!

    This sweet and sexy new adult love story is the story of Whitney, a young woman determined to get serious about her life and her future and Hudson, a hockey bad boy. Whitney's been fooled by one too many players, and she's done with them all - to the tune of deciding to write an expose for the college paper on the entitlement of college sports students. To that end she's found herself a job as the current sports reporter and infiltrated the hockey locker room, being sure to dress down from her normal party girl attire in an effort to be taken seriously. While Hudson initially comes across as the type of man she should avoid they still manage to strike up an honest friendship, one that goes beyond the outward appearance of serious Reporter Girl and Hockey Boy. They are both hiding secrets that will do more to hurt their burgeoning relationship than help it. Will their new relationship be over before it has a chance to become something more? I really enjoyed the first book in this series which was a friends to lovers romance with Whitney's friend Lyla who falls in love with her best friend Beck, a hockey player, in Lucky Number Seven. So I'd seen a bit of Whitney as a secondary character and was looking forward to reading her story. It starts off with her having been dumped by a man she was seeing with whom she thought she'd been exclusive (a fact he didn't seem to know) and it's definitely put her off of men. So off in fact, that she's really tired of the entitlement issues that she's seen with her last few 'boyfriends' who were all involved in sports. They were players, in more ways than one. Her revenge? To work her way into the locker room of the college hockey team and get the inside scoop on just how privileged they are. I liked Whitney, her party self and her more down to earth self too. She's lost some of her confidence due to her dating track record, and the comments from a professor that she'd make a good anchorwoman as opposed to a serious journalist just fuel her ire. If she has to dress down and be all business like all the time, that's what she'll do. Of course, it's not her natural way of doing things, so she does find herself longingly looking at her spiked heels periodically, and letting some of her true character shine through. What Hudson sees therefore is a contradiction - a buttoned up and serious sports reporter, who, when not on the clock, has a more playful and flirtatious side. He's intrigued by all aspects of Whitney, including her willingness to listen to him, and he finds himself sharing more things with her than he ever expected. Hudson definitely comes across as a player (and it's no surprise that when Whitney starts making up an article for herself called 'anatomy of a player', she uses him as the role model). But he's had a bit of a rough past, he struggles with keeping up his grade point average, and for all his outward bravado, there is in fact a generous and warm man inside. As it turns out both of them are adept at keeping parts of their personality hidden. Hudson's real friendship with Whitney makes a bet that he made with his friend Dane, a bet to get the Reporter girl in bed before the end of the season, sit heavily on him when he discovers that she's so much more than she appears to be. But every time he wants to come clean he gets thwarted. Similarly, Whitney finds that looking into student's opinions about those on campus with sports scholarships opens up a lot more vitriolic debate than she bargained for. As a result, there is a lot of tension throughout the story, with the secrets these two are keeping from each other just waiting to come out into the open. I found myself unable to put the book down as a result. The more involved they got with each other, including on an intimate level, the more stressful it got! Because of the push and pull between them, the sexual tension that exists from the start gives way to some steamy love scenes. And doesn't that just bugger everything up too, because now they actually like each other! And they want to keep sleeping together! But their guilty consciences weigh on them until something gives. I was mentally braced for when things would blow up but the way everything was handled turned out to be a lot less stressful than I expected (whew!) so that everything turns out to give them the happy ending they both need and deserve. It was a thoroughly delightful story, with lots of laughs, sexy times, tension and a steady paced plot. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series, which will feature Hudson's best friend Dane! 4.5 stars.
