Dad never told me I couldn’t fall for one of his hockey players.
But he never said I could, either…

I’ve followed the Aspenridge College hockey team for years, even when I wasn’t a student. Now that I’ve transferred here, I have up close and personal access to the team, including their parties.

Intending to shed my wallflower status, it’s only natural to attend the first party of the season. Reputed playboy Cody McGuire takes me under his wing, and when he finds out I genuinely love his favorite sport, his interest is piqued.

I don’t mean to keep running into him on campus, but it happens. And when he tells me to prove I’m not like the usual women he has in his bed, what comes out of my mouth is asking him to teach me things. Sexual things. He thinks I’m kidding at first, but I’m not. What better way to learn more skills in the bedroom than from the king of the player’s club?

So long as he doesn’t find out my dad is his new coach….

First I'd like to thanks Taylor Delong for sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I really did enjoy this book, but there were a couple things that I felt like it should've happened earlier on so a majority of the book lagged for me. That being said, this was still a really good read and I am so interested in reading more from the series!

So just for me, I felt like the fact that Liliana could have communicated more about the fact that her father is the coach. Like that didn't happen until almost the very end of the book, and really had it been brought up more, there could have been some more fun forbidden, sneaking around romance between the two, rather than her just hiding who she is. I understand part of it, but for the progression of the story, I felt like it should have been earlier on.

I also feel like her "Research" could have also happened a bit sooner than it did. There was talk about it early in the book, but then the actual teaching moment didn't happen until about halfway through the book. I will say that once it did happen, things did steam up. And they got HOT.

Something apart from the relationship between Liliana and Cody was her relationship with one of the previous hockey player's family and little girl. I think it was super sweet, and there was one particular moment that was swoon worthy between all of the characters before things took a turn.

I will say I was really drawn to Liliana and Cody, wanting to know what was going to happen, and what would happen once the shoe inevitably fell and everyone found out that she was the coach's daughter. It was sweet, swoony, hilarious and all the things.

Overall, this was a really good read, but I felt like there could have been certain parts that came out earlier and still made the story move along well. I loved the relationship and the banter between the two of them. I was flipping pages wanting to find out what would happen when the secrets came out!

That's all for my review, I hope you enjoyed it and be sure to grab your copy and check it out! If you're a fan of sports romance, you'll love this!

So until the next time, keep reading!
Your Graduated Bookworm! :)
