  • Outstanding

    5 star Review Hard Fall (St Louis Mavericks 31) by Brenda Rothert & Kat Mizera   Where do I start? What a fantastic start to St Louise Mavericks, in what I fully expect to be a winning series. Brenda Rothert and Kat Mizera are authors I have read and loved individually Together these two wrote a phenomenal story that drew me in and held me captive from the first word to the last. The story and characters were engaging and I found myself drawn to the story that they wove about Weston (Wes) Kirby and Hadley Ellis. Wes and Ben Whitmer were best friends as were Hadley and Lauren, until tragedy struck. Suddenly, Wes finds himself joint guardian with Hadley to their children with no time to grieve. This was an emotional story that tugged at my heart strings and pulled out so man emotions whilst I was reading. Hadley and Wes have always tolerated one another because their best friends were married to one another but now they will have to pull together to offer support and comfort and a stable life to Annalise and Benny. You could feel their pain as both Wes and Hadley struggled with their grief whilst trying to do what was best for the children as well as having to contend with the attraction that develops between them. There were moments where I was brought to tears and moments were I smiled like a lunatic. The camaraderie and support that his fellow players offered to them also added an additional layer to my enjoyment of the story. The writing was strong and I have no idea who wrote what or where one author stopped and the other took over, such was the seamlessness of their writing. From start to finish Ms. Rothert and Ms. Mizera wove together a story that I simply could not put down.

  • I loved Wes and Hadley!

    Oh, I had a good time with this one! If you have followed my reviews for any amount of time, you probably already know that I am a sucker for a good hockey romance. What can I say? So when this book made its way to me and I saw that it was a hockey romance set in my hometown, I knew that I would have to give it a try. This story grabbed my heart early on and I couldn’t wait to see how everything would work out. Wes and Hadley have known each other since their best friends, Ben and Lauren, fell in love and married. As much as their friends had hoped that they would hit it off as well, Wes and Hadley barely tolerate each other. When Ben and Lauren are killed in an accident, Wes and Hadley are both devastated and shocked to learn that they have been named guardians of the two small children. I really liked Wes and Hadley. It was obvious how much they both cared for Ben and Lauren’s children and I loved how they quickly learned to work together to make the household work. They have a long history of disliking each other but they learn a lot about each other once they start living together and becoming part of a family unit. They had fantastic chemistry together and I liked how they grew to trust each other’s opinions. The kids in this story were great and played a huge role in the story. I also loved the men on Wes’s hockey team and how they were willing to lend a hand whenever they could. I would recommend this book to others. This was a very well-done hockey romance with fantastic characters. I would have loved to see a little more of St. Louis in the story but that didn’t have an impact on my enjoyment. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series! I received a digital review copy of this book from the publicist/authors.

  • Finding new love and new family

    I recently won this book in a GR giveaway, and I'm so glad I did. Having never read either of the authors before, I wasn't sure what to expect. First, I was very impressed with how seamlessly their writing meshed together. Usually, I can tell when there is an author change in co-written books but in this one I honestly had no idea who wrote what as there were no stylistic breaks or any other identifying characteristics. Beyond that, the story was both hopeful and heartbreaking. It opens with the death of Ben and Lauren in a car accident. Their will names their respective best friends as the joint guardians of their 3 YO and 6 mo old kids. The problem is that Wes and Hadley have always had a argumentative and difficult relationship. Not only are they struggling with their grief, they must also deal with their antagonism while learning to parent the kids and share the same house. This sounds like a lot, and it is, but at the same time, the book is not bogged down in heaviness or pain. There are plenty of light, fun moments to counter the bittersweetness of the main plot. I've been avoiding books with heavier themes for over a year now, but this one never felt too weighed down. I loved both Hadley and Wes, felt their pain, but also felt their triumph as they made a new family with the kids and navigated a new romance. Looks like I've found not one but two new authors and I'm looking forward to checking out their backlists.

  • All the feels

    Wes and Hadley have all the ingredients for full-scale … warfare! And the shift from that to chemistry that isn’t focused on killing each other is well worth reading. This is a fairly quick read, and it’s one you won’t regret starting. This story is heavy on the feels – warning: you will need tissues – and it has steam, it has heat, it has action, and you can’t help falling in love with all the characters. In these days of multiple losses, the heartbreak of Ben and Lauren’s deaths is almost too much to read, and the determination of their friends, Wes and Hadley in particular, to step up for their children is wonderful.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Fantastic!!

    This book is for those of us that not only love a great sports romance but a book that tear your heart out only to put it back together with everything in between. For two people who despised each other in the beginning they were thrown together by tragedy. It’s always great when an author(s) work can bring you to your knees while making you laugh at times. These two authors sure work well together and I can’t wait for more to come in the St. Louis Mavericks series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
