She closed her heart long ago. He just wants to open her mind. For fans of Toni Aleo and Sawyer Bennett, the debut of Sophia Henry’s red-hot Detroit Pilots series introduces a hockey team full of complicated men who fight for love.

Auden Berezin is used to losing people: her father, her mother, her first love. Now, just when she believes those childhood wounds are finally healing, she loses something else: the soccer scholarship that was her ticket to college. Scrambling to earn tuition money, she’s relieved to find a gig translating for a Russian minor-league hockey player—until she realizes that he’s the same dangerously sexy jerk who propositioned her at the bar the night before.

Equal parts muscle and scar tissue, Aleksandr Varenkov knows about trauma. Maybe that’s what draws him to Auden. He also lost his family too young, and he channeled the pain into his passions: first hockey, then vodka and women. But all that seems to just melt away the instant he kisses Auden and feels a jolt of desire as sudden and surprising as a hard check on the ice.

After everything she’s been through, Auden can’t bring herself to trust any man, let alone a hot-headed puck jockey with a bad reputation. Aleksandr just hopes she’ll give him a chance—long enough to prove he’s finally met the one who makes him want to change.


I didn't know this author but when I saw " For fans of Sawyer Bennett..." I said " this book is for me" :)) I'm a huge Sawyer Bennett's fan.

I liked this book, I really enjoyed reading it even if I had a hard time sometimes to understand their reactions...I think I needed something more... more feelings.. more I don't know what...just more.

Auden & Aleksandr had both difficult past...very similars so they understood each other pretty well. We felt the chemistry between them from the beginning but for Auden nothing lasts forever... so everything isn't gonna be easy for their relationship but they're gonna fight for it :)) 

This book is easy to read & well written. If you want a good YA book, go for this one :)) I'm gonna read the next one for sure 

ps: big +++++ for the cover :))




This book will be available on September 1rst :))
