Victoria Denault’s new hockey series gets off to an amazing start with SCORE. Fans of her previous books will NOT be disappointed. Perfect blend of hockey, heartbreak, and romance. Definitely recommend!
He’s used to winning, but now he’s playing with his heart.
Jude Braddock. Hockey god. That’s how everyone sees him now. But when they were teenagers, Zoey knew him as the kid who didn’t have enough nerve to make a move on their one and only disastrous date. Seems he doesn’t have that problem anymore, though. According to the rumors, he’s with a different woman every night. After a rough divorce, the last thing Zoey needs is more heartbreak. But Jude’s cocky, playful attitude is mighty hard to resist.
Jude knows he isn’t built for long-term relationships. But he’s getting sick of women pounding on his door in the middle of the night looking for a rematch. When Zoey comes back into his life, it’s like fate has given him a second chance. He’ll do anything to make her happy again. Is this what love looks like? He has no idea. All he knows for sure is that this time, he’s playing for keeps.
Victoria Denault does it again with her fifth book in the “Hometown Players” series! Readers will be eager to sink their teeth into Avery and Stephanie’s story. Full of laughter, steamy sex, heartbreak, and hockey action. Definitely recommend!
He had total control of his game–until she changed all the rules . . . As one of the best players in the NHL and the “golden boy” of the league, Avery Westwood knows he has to keep his cool–on and off the ice. His whole life is a carefully constructed image of perfection for the media and his brand sponsors. Of course, that means he can never let his true feelings show. But when it comes to the sexy sister of his former teammate, Avery might be willing to make an exception . . . even if it means breaking all his own rules.
As far as Stephanie Deveau is concerned, having a thing for Avery is the equivalent of psychological napalm. Très bad idea. Then he moves in next door, all sexy smiles and a deliciously hot body that she can’t resist. Something’s happening between them–it’s intense, a little (a lot) out of control, and real. Only Avery doesn’t know everything about Stephanie’s past. And the one exception to his rule might just be the one girl who could destroy his career.
Victoria Denault gives us another great hockey player to fall in love with, Sebastian Deveau. Readers won’t be able to stop themselves from being ensnared by his charms. His character really wins the book and makes up for some of the bumpy character traits that the heroine, Shayne Beckford, has. Shayne has had some bad experiences in her life with men who have played hockey and has sworn off having anyone in her life that has ANYTHING to do with hockey. She takes her aversion to the game and players to a new level. Readers might get frustrated with Shayne’s attitude but luckily Sebastian is there to save the day. His character such a great blend of sexy, snarky, heartfelt, and fun. Everyone will be wanting a boyfriend like him. Great mix of laughter, tears, wit, steamy sex, and hockey action will draw readers in and leave them wanting more. Definitely recommend!
All’s fair in love and hockey. . .
As his team’s enforcer on the ice, Sebastian Deveau is America’s favorite fighting Frenchman. But he’s just as likely to get into trouble off the ice–especially when it comes to women.
Shayne Beckford is so over hockey. It ruined her parents’ marriage. It spoiled her brother’s dreams. And let’s not even talk about her college boyfriend . . . So when Sebastian Deveau walks into her brother’s gym, she has no idea who he is. All she knows is that he’s one gorgeous man with the sexiest accent she’s ever heard. And since she never has to see him again, she lets him give her the best orgasm of her life right on top of the gym’s dryer.
But Sebastian isn’t going to let this one-night stand get away so easily. He fights for what he wants, even if it takes fighting a little dirty . . .

Love, love, LOVE this conclusion to the “Hometown Players” series by Victoria Denault!!! Absolutely perfect. Callie has been a personal favorite of mine throughout the series and it was great to finally read her story. A must read. DEFINITELY recommend it!!!
*ARC received for an honest review
Hockey legend Devin Garrison thought he blew his shot. But his relationship with Callie Caplan just went into overtime.
Sexy, rich, and one of the biggest stars in the NHL, Devin Garrison has always been the one who had it all. That is until his marriage falls apart and he realizes he has to start over. If he’s honest, there has only been one woman who ever really excited him-Callie Caplan. They shared a night that was hotter than the late-summer sun, but in an instant-Callie was gone, pretending it never happened.
Callie Caplan isn’t the wild child people think she is. It’s true she’s avoided relationships, but only because she’s seen how crazy love can be. And her messy, imperfect life is crazy enough without opening her heart to a man-even one as picture perfect as Devin. But when fate brings them back together-just as they need each other most-Devin is determined to convince Callie that what she’s feeling is real. And this final play may be their chance at forever . . .
Luc Richard is the hottest player in the NHL—and it has nothing to do with hockey. His racy relationship with his supermodel ex set the tabloids on fire but nearly put his career on ice. To avoid being traded, Luc agrees to take a break from the spotlight—and from women—and spend the off-season at home in Silver Bay, Maine. It’s the perfect plan . . . until he reconnects with Rose.
Rose Caplan is tired of being shy, sweet, and safe. She’s ready for passion, romance—and Luc. Having loved him longer than she can remember, she’s finally ready to prove she’s not the same innocent little girl he once knew. Off the ice Luc doesn’t do games, but this new Rose makes him feel like playing a little dirty. If he’s really got a shot at her heart then he’s not just playing to win. He’s playing for keeps…
I love this series by Victoria Denault! I really enjoyed the first book, ONE MORE SHOT, and I was pleasantly surprised that this book was even better. It was easy to get right back into the story with very little trouble.
Even though this book is part of a series, it can easily be read as a standalone novel. The writer does an excellent job of bringing the reader up to speed without taking them away from the story for the recap. The backstory is seamlessly introduced.
I love the characters, Rose and Luc, and you can’t help rooting for them to find true love. They both have a lot of growing up to do and it was great watching them find their way. The story was well written, fast moving, and engaging. The reader is caught from the very first page. Definitely recommend this book! Five stars
