“I loved some of their witty dialogue and back-and-forth banter. I was just disappointed with the quick resolution.”
~ Under the Covers
Neve Angel and Tor Gunnar are frenemies and neither the two shall mix. 🙂 While there is mutual respect between Neve and Tor, they both seem to rub each other the wrong way. With every run-in, glares are cast, words are thrown like knives, and beneath it all lies a growing and unfulfilled sexual hunger. But a relationship between them would be doomed from the start.
Neve is a top-notch sports journalist who writes about Denver’s Hellions, two-time U.S. champions and Pro hockey team. She pokes and nettles Tor Gunnar whenever she gets the chance. But the tight-lipped coach drives her insane with his lack of information.
Tor is the Hellions head coach who refuses to give Neve the time of day or-what she’d much rather have-a great quote for the paper. However, she is also the star of his darker sexual fantasies. But after a failed marriage, Tor is a little gun shy and feels out of his element.
Then a bet happens.
Neve must now be Tor’s plus one to his ex-wife’s wedding.
The story fast forwards from here and what follows is a sexual culinary delight with little conflict. We find out that Tor is an expert dirty talker and Neve gives in to her more primal urges. And this all happens a little too easy for my taste. Their pent up frustration erupts too quickly and besides the awesome sex—there seems to be a lack of emotional growth.
I loved some of their witty dialogue and back-and-forth banter. I was just disappointed with the quick resolution. I wanted to feel the slow burn-something that really never happened.
Also there were a couple of times I felt taken out of the story-the build-up for book three fell flat for me. And one scene (a ghost story couple who makes noises in the hotel room) left me a scratching my head, questioning the reasoning for it.
Besides that—Head Coach does deliver the goods with above par writing. Something that A LOT of books are missing lately.
A solid read for those who like a fast-paced story with lots of sexy times. Oh—and loves a sexy-as-hell hockey coach 🙂
