    quick and fun read

    Lindy is just your ordinary, average, every day girl who by chance meets her famous crush and it turns into an unlikely friendship.  And later into something more.  Victor had a terrible childhood but thanks to hard work he's made it to the top of his field.  While he's managed to make a family of sorts out of his teammates, he doesn't have anyone that he can really call his.  Then he meets sweet, awkward, real Lindy. This was a very fast read for me and I really enjoyed it.  The characters are appealing and it's fun watching them meet, fall in love, and handle some of life's less happy moments.  But once I had time to digest I realized that Rothert put a lot into her book that I felt really could have been delved into more - like Victor's relationship with his mom, his childhood cancer, Victor changing his mind on Lindy, how they handled the outing of their relationship with the press.  These things are hit on lightly but had potential for so much.  That doesn't even get into the past that is giving Victor so much trouble.  Rothert opens the door to make him a hero for so many and ... she lets it go.  I appreciate that she does have him come to terms with it for himself and maybe she can come back around to it in a future story but she put the possibility out there and left it.  I just wish there'd been a chance to add a little more depth to the story. Overall, though, Victor is a quick and satisfying Cinderella story that's a perfect poolside read - just don't tell Lindy I called her that! I'm looking forward to seeing more in the series and from this author. (This is the first in this series that I've read but I felt like it could stand on its own.) **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of a reader copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not influenced in any way.**

    Loved it!

    I think Victor is my favorite of the Chicago Blaze hockey stories. Victor is off his game and needs to get it together before he loses his position on the team. Lindy is a young girl working concessions who has crushed on Victor for years. A chance meeting has her giving him some advice on his game play. They quickly form a wonderful friendship before realizing their feelings for each other run deeper than friendship. I really enjoyed reading their story. Both characters were very likable and their relationship felt real to me. I highly recommend this story to everyone who enjoys a well written, realistic, hockey romance.

    All the feels

    I want to start by saying this book was everything I expected and so much more, it’s an amazing addition to the series of stand-alone books set in the world of the Chicago Blaze Hockey Team. Lindy works in concessions at the Hockey stadium where Victor plays, she see herself as just an ordinary girl that no sports star would be interested in. Victor is struggling to stay on top of his game, his past has come back to haunt him and he is at risk of losing his place in n the team so he decides to put some extra hours on Ice and that’s where he meets Lindy....... Lindy is the complete opposite to girls Victor normally dates but her openness and knowledge of hockey is just what he needs to get his head back in the game and an unlikely friendship soon forms. Friendship turns into so much more as this couple open their hearts to each other and once again this author proves she is not afraid to talk about issues so many shy away from. This book touched me on so many levels, at times I was left smiling like a Cheshire Cat and at times I was heartbroken but this book is a must read for all Hockey fans. Looking forward to more from the Chicago Blaze.

    Brenda Rothert is on a winning streak with VICTOR

    Brenda Rothert is on a winning streak with VICTOR (Chicago Blaze Hockey #3). In this story, hockey star Victor Lane finds himself intrigued by shy concession employee, Belinda (Lindy) Boring. She’s not his usual type, but she might be what he needs. He just has to convince her and hope that his past secret doesn’t scare her away. This contemporary sports romance is suitable for adult readers. VICTOR is a heartfelt read. I enjoyed the plot and characters. I thought it was clever how Lindy and Victor met, and the advice Lindy gives Victor. I love that Victor takes her suggestion. Victor is a good guy. He grew up poor and had a difficult childhood. He has some stressful stuff going on. He has never felt worthy or loved by anyone. His family is the team. He is humble. Lindy is a sweet character. She feels invisible and unremarkable. She is down to earth and funny. I love her dad and his friends. I like that Lindy and Victor appreciates each other for who they are. I love that they were friends first. They are a cute couple. Brenda Rothert did a great job writing this story. It is skillfully executed and exciting. There are interesting occurrences. The story had a sweet ending that made the book feel complete. I recommend VICTOR to people who enjoy sports romances. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    An Emotional Read

    If you're a fan of not only hot hockey players, but Cinderella stories with healing and redemption, you have found your book. VICTOR, the third installment in author Brenda Rothert's Chicago Blaze series, will absolutely hit you in the feels, and leave your cheering. There is a lot packed into this book, and definitely some things that must absolutely be uncovered whist reading, so I can't really go into a lot of detail. Plus, who wants a lengthy plot rehash, when the fun and magic of reading a book are so personal to each individual person? Suffice to say that there is all of the on-ice magic that Brenda's hockey players are famous for, unexpected love, plenty of passion, and an emotional twist that shows what people are truly made of. In a nutshell, VICTOR is a melding of the steamy sports reads that we've come to know and love, with some of the angst and uncomfortable spots that Brenda has brought into her non-sports romances. All in all, a perfect pairing, and one that serves us up a couple that I was cheering from from start to finish.
