  • I loved it!

    Audio review: Story – 5 Performance – 5 Overall - 5 I loved it! Trade Deadline is a great story about childhood friends who rediscover each other so it fits two of my most favorite romance tropes: friends-to-lovers and second chance stories. Daniel and his wife had a very amicable divorce and they remain good friends. When he accepts a trade to the Miami NHL team, she and their two kids move as well. So, everything should be good for him but something stills feels like it's missing. Micah and Daniel were friends before Daniel's family moved to give him a better chance to succeed at hockey. Micah has achieved his dream of working with dolphins and he is the head animal care specialist at a Miami aquarium. When is finds out that Daniel is moving to Miami he wonders if they will be able to reconnect. I loved everything about this book. The audio performance by Kirt Graves was fantastic. His voice is easy to listen to and the different characters were easy to distinguish. Daniel and Micah's connection really came through in the writing and narration. They resumed their friendship almost like no time had passed. Things aren't all smooth sailing, however. The trade to a new NHL team didn't go quite the way that Daniel had hoped and he has decisions to make that will affect his budding romance with Micah. This has been such a great series and I'm sorry to see it come to an end. An ebook review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book. An audio review copy was provided by Harlequin Audio. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***

  • Lovely story, thoroughly developed

    Daniel won all that’s to win in the NHL and when the opportunity is there to return to Miami to help out the Miami Thunder club, he’s in. Miami is home! Micah is a marine biologist and works at the Biscayne Bay Aquarium. His Instagram tells him Daniel will return to Miami. Micah and Daniel were best friends and share their first kiss. But hockey was Daniel’s biggest love. Daniel was out of his league now with all the big NHL money, there’s a big chance Daniel wouldn’t recognize Micah at all after two decades. Ha! After reconnecting they start more than only friendship. “Every time he laughs, your face lights up. It’s like this automatic response, and it’s adorable.” Micah's heart belongs to Daniel, he loves so many things about him. But he wants to keep distance. Because at the end Daniel will leave, for hockey, again. He will never be the one to follow Daniel, he has his life and dream-job in Miami. A friendly warm read, with mature characters, where ex’s are friends for life and involved. Where friends and beautiful family are of importance. What I missed was some kind of struggle, it did go all a bit too smoothly, some tension, struggle or fight would give it a bit more juice. The last part on the other hand was special. For the rest no complaints, it was a lovely story, thoroughly developed, with the most lovely main characters.

  • Hockey Romance

    Daniel Bellamy appears to be at a crossroads. This 33 year old NHL player has achieved the goal of a lifetime, the Stanley Cup. He feels his career is winding down due to his age and is getting restless. He devoted his entire career to the Venoms but now there is an offer from the Miami Thunder. Divorced, but on friendly terms with his ex they successfully co-parent and he feels this change can be done without much upset. Daniel feels he can offer the struggling Thunders real help which would be a nice way of exiting out of the game he loves. Moving to Florida would be wonderful. His ex wife Tabby is willing to move there so he can be near his kids and there is the added bonus of seeing his parents. After the move he reconnects with his childhood friend Micah who is an animal care specialist at an aquarium. Micah feels very very privileged being able to work at this job as there are very few careers like this. Micah and Daniel enjoy each other's company and the more they are together they realize they can't deny their chemistry. Soon they're falling for each other and everything is perfect until life throw xthem a curveball. Being a hockey player for the Thunders is sucking Daniel's soul dry. The players attitudes are abysmal at best and there is zero teamwork. Daniel loves Florida for so many reasons but soon he is at a crossroads to his career. Micah, his kids and parents mean the world to him but his time with the Thunder is coming to an end. Micah can't leave his career as there really are no options for him in another state but Daniel is miserable. Can these two figure a way to keep what they have and be true to their selves? I highly recommend this riveting story. Special thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me a copy for my reading pleasure.

  • Very sweet second (first?) chance romance

    Daniel Bellamy was one of my favorite characters from the first two books, so I was excited to see him get his own story. It did not disappoint. Even though Daniel struggles with his career throughout the book, the sheer amount of sweetness keeps the angst light. I especially loved Daniel's relationship with his ex-wife. Often the ex is portrayed as evil incarnate, but this story shows that sometimes two people can love each other and not want to be together. As much as I loved Daniel, Micah stole my heart with his sense of humor, his compassion, and his general good nature. It was also nice to see the couples from the first two books again. Can't wait for the next book!

  • Sweet & Sexy

    Avon Gale and Piper Vaughn team up together again to bring us the third book in their Hat Trick series, Trade Deadline. Daniel Bellamy gets his happily ever after in this sweet and steamy romance, and you can definitely read any of the books in this series as stand-alones. I always enjoyed the scenes with Daniel in the earlier novels, his relationship with his wife intrigued me and I love that he was into rescue dogs. He seemed like such an easy going, likable guy I’m glad we got his story. Always out as a bisexual man, Daniel’s relationship with his childhood bestie Micah isn’t a huge shock to the other characters in the book. I appreciate how casually everyone takes it and “coming out” is not the focus of the novel. It’s all about how these two men come together as adults and renew their friendship. We get both of their stories, and watch them fall in love. It really is very sweet and filled with the steamy hot romantic scenes we fans of Avon Gale and Piper Vaughn hope to get in every book they write. Trade Deadline is a little short on the hockey scenes, which is a shame because I think Avon Gale writes some great ones, but I was so caught up in the romance I didn’t even notice the lack of actual sports scenes till the very end. It’s just a wonderful, feel good story.
