(Prescott Family Book 1)
by Mignon Mykel
There's only one thing he wants to do
Having grown up in a hockey family, Caleb Prescott knows better than most the ins and outs of a season.
If there's one thing he has vowed to stick by, it's that he's there to play the game, not be the face gracing media.
Sydney Meadows is finishing up her degree and decides to intern with a casting company. Fun, right?
Until she's given an impossible task--get a well known hockey player, who has very little media presence, to agree to star on a dating show.
What starts as a challenge, quickly turns difficult in other ways...
But sometimes plans change...
**Book provided for an honest review**
This is not your typical sports start romance.
I was expecting your typical attention-seeking, cocky-ass star who gets side-swiped by love and has to work to go against his reputation. Instead, Caleb is a low-key hockey sweetheart who didn't expect to fall in love but knew it was possible. There is low sports-ing in the book too so if you aren't a big fan of on-the-ice action, don't worry--there is none.
Now I wasn't completely sold on the dating show end of the novel at first. I have read some others before that involved some sketchy behavior on the end of the hero that I couldn't get on board with. I was afraid this would be like the others but I was happy when Caleb remained true to Sydney through out the whole dating show process.
Just in case you were wanting to know, the sex scenes are nice and long. Caleb and Sydney both have dirty minds and dirty mouths. Both also know how to have fun in the bedroom which is great because it keeps the sex scenes from becoming repetitive. It's hot and creative and bound to give you a few ideas of your own.
My only criticism is the characters spend a good deal of time in their own heads. There is interaction between the two but most of the heavy-duty stuff doesn't play out between Caleb and Sydney, but in their own heads. I would have liked more communication between the two in the real world. It would have lead an even deeper connection between the characters and my connection to the two of them as a couple.
Overall, the book was a fun read. It is the start of a series involving the whole Prescott family which you get introduced to during the course of the book. Sometimes this is a little distracting from the main story, but I get why it had to be done.
If you are looking to find your next series to love, this would be a good place to start.
Plus, with this edition, it includes a bonus novella! Score!
