I’ve been reading Sawyer Bennett’s hockey romances for a long time now, so I was excited to read a new series by her. The setup in this one sounded fun. The hero is obviously the hockey player and the heroine is the coach’s daughter. But we have a bit of a twist with a fake relationship that is born due to her father finding them together in a compromising position the day after their one night stand.
Some of this book is classic Ms. Bennett’s style. At the same time, some of it was a little too unbelievable for me. Bishop and Brooke seem to fall into a real relationship quick fast. Maybe some of that was the initial attraction and sexual chemistry that they have in spades, but the other part was being thrown into such close proximity by having to pretend they’re together. But I just expected both of them to be a little more freaked out about the situation and there was none of that. That also made this book very low on conflict. Which, depending on your mood and what you’re looking to read at the time may be just the perfect thing.
I still enjoyed my time reading BISHOP and once again I’m sold on a hockey team created by Ms. Bennett. There was enough hockey to keep the story feeling real in that aspect. I guess maybe it boils down to expectations as to why I didn’t rate this one more. If you are looking for a fake relationship story with a dash of insta love, sexy chemistry and low on angst then this is the read for you. I’ll definitely be on the lookout for the next book.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
