Power Play by Alley Ciz


Title: Power Play
Series: BTU Alumni #1
Author: Alley Ciz
Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance

Release Date: June 4, 2019

Hockey players are off limits…especially if they’re on your brothers’ team.
The last time Jordan did that, it ended in disaster. It was easy to promise her brothers
she’d never date another one of their teammates again.

Until she meets Jake.

The spark she feels when she spends time with him makes her promise harder and
harder to keep.

Surely her brothers would understand breaking this promise if it means following her heart.

Wouldn’t they?

Never sleep with a teammate’s sister.
This is the universal rule of athletes everywhere.

Until he meets Jordan.

As soon as Jake sets eyes on her, he wants her.

The goalie’s job is to see missed shots and failed opportunities on the ice.

This is one shot he’s not going to miss, no matter what obstacles get in his way.

POWER PLAY is a flirty, swoon worthy sexy rom-com and the first book in the BTU Alumni series. It can be read as a stand alone. If you like hockey boys, sarcastic friends, matchmaking canines, too-cute-to-handle kindergartners, fierce heroines and swoony hot as puck Alpha heroes, then you want to get to know these cast of characters. One puck head and a HEA guaranteed.

My review:

Jake is a college hockey player, friends with Jordan’s brothers. Jordan is the only sister in a family of brothers and they are all overprotective. She was in NYC for her first two years of college and is now transferring home to Brighton. Jake spots her the first night she’s back at their aunt’s sports bar and is smitten. The attraction is mutual but she’s promised her brothers to never date a teammate of theirs after the disastrous experience two years prior, and Jake is afraid of risking his teammates and his chance at a future in the pros. Of  course they fall in love anyway. They decide to keep their relationship a secret from her brothers but their best friends know.  But when Jordan’s past catches up to her, all bets are off.

I liked this book, but didn’t love it. Jordan and Jake are fine, but I may be a little too old for them and the writing style. The story itself was great and I liked all the characters. The two five year olds, though, really steal the book and in a good way. They are adorable! And Jake and Jordan’s interactions with their siblings was a nice addition to the story.
