I CHOSE THIS QUOTE FOR THE SERIES BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT IN EVERY ONE OF THESE BOOKS THIS LESSON IS FOUND IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER! HERE ARE MY REVIEWS: 

BOOK 1: EVEN STRENGTH by: CHERYLANNE CORNEILLE: 

I really enjoyed this book, it is about Hockey Player Nate Ward and his boyfriend Tristan. Nate and Tristan hardly ever see each other due to their work, and when Nate has issues with people not liking him being Gay in the league, both with rival teams and fans, will he tell Tristan or not? If he doesn't then the fall out may not be repairable, then again Nate may get a surprise, and support he never saw coming! 
                                     the 4 Rainbow Hockey Skate Lace Rating
I HAD TO DO THAT RATING, HERE IS AN EXCERPT! 
He took a few laps around their end of the rink to loosen his legs. On his fourth pass around the net, he picked up a stray puck and carried it on his stick before shooting it into the net. Boone bumped his shoulder and nodded toward the glass as they rounded their end of the rink again.
What the hell? He glanced in the direction his teammate indicated. Two men around his age wearing New York’s jerseys held up a brightly colored sign that said simply, “Thank you, Nate.” He puzzled on the meaning until he made another lap. One of them also held a small rainbow flag.
:)!! NOW FOR AN AUTHOR BIO!
Cherylanne Corneille

Cherylanne Corneille has been writing almost as long as she has loved the game of hockey, so it was inevitable that she would eventually combine two of her favorite pastimes into one hobby. She will watch almost any game but prefers to cheer on the Carolina Hurricanes, Anaheim Ducks, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Tyler Seguin.
When not writing or watching hockey, she enjoys running and has completed 18 half marathons.  She also loves Stars Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Captain America.
Cherylanne lives in Central Florida with her cat, who was almost called Puck or Hanifin but sometimes answers to the name Phasma.

BOOK 2: NEXT SEASON by: AVON GALE: 
I really loved this book about two hockey players traded from the same team to the same team, one a rookie, Nick, and his teammate Everett Sparrow. 
Nick and Sparrow find more than they bargained for when they are traded to a team that is less than stellar. Can these two get it together on and off the ice? Will the team improve? Or will bad attitudes prevail? You will love the answer to these questions! 
                                                 the 5 microphone rating :)

YOU WILL SEE WHY I DID THIS RATING :) HERE IS AN EXCERPT: 

Nick stopped as Sparrow went to get into his Escalade, which he’d somehow remote started the second they got out of the building. Nick drove a 2002 Ford Focus and was lucky if it started when the key was in the ignition.
“So, uh,” Nick said, not wanting to just walk off but still as uncertain as he’d been in the locker room about what to say. “See you in Philly, I guess.”
“Yeah,” Sparrow muttered, yanking the door to his luxury SUV open with too much force. “See you in Philly, kid.”
Nick managed to get his own car door open, grabbed his ice scraper, and turned the car on so he could blast the heat. He watched Sparrow drive away, leaving tire tracks in the snow.

AUTHOR BIO:

She likes road trips, rock concerts, drinking Kentucky bourbon and yelling at hockey. She’s a displaced southerner living in a liberal midwestern college town, and she never gets tired of people and their stories -- either real or the ones she makes up in her head.

BOOK 3: GOING HOME by: HEATHER LIRE: 

This book is about Blake, who goes home to Las Vegas as a coach on their new expansion team, he knows he will eventually see Micah, the best friend he left behind after a confusing night years ago. 
When Micah sees Blake he can't help but want things he thinks are impossible, but are they? Does Blake feel the same as Micah does? If so will he open up and admit his feelings? This is a great addition to this anthology! 

                                                  the 5 Rolling Rock rating :)

THIS RATING IS PERFECT FOR THIS STORY! NOW FOR AN EXCERPT: 

“What the fuck, man?” Blake growled at Dex.
“What?” he asked, innocently. Too innocently. “I was just making conversation with an old friend from high school. One who helped both of us graduate.”
If he’d known when he started this trip down memory lane that he’d be running into the person who’d had a staring roll in the epic disaster that had been his last night in town, he’d never have started it. Micah had also held a staring roll in every single one of his sexual fantasies back then as well.
“Fuck you, Dex.”
“Think about it like this…this is a new start for both of us. A chance to fix the things in our lives that we fucked up. Me with my career and you with Micah.”

BOOK 4: ON BROADWAY by: V.L. LOCEY: 

Ok, everyone knows this author is one of my faves, and I was thrilled she had a book in this anthology, and boy did this book make me happy! 

Riley is a very popular Hockey Player, but would he be as popular if the world knew the secret only his best friend and family knew? 

When Riley sees a beautiful man at the outdoor Hockey Rink he can't help but admire his skills and beauty, but then the guy is chased off. Will Riley see him again? 

Turns out the answer is yes, but is he ready for the ride this 'Rocket" will take him on? How far will Riley go to keep Rocket? 

                                                        the 5 Fabio rating :P

BAHAHAH, YES I HAD A REASON FOR THIS RATING! HERE IS AN EXCERPT:



"You're about as far from being just a guy as I am from being able to play “Rocket Man” on harmonica.”
"Is that the song your mom named you after?" I fell back to the bed, feet dangling to the floor and hands clasped behind my head.
"Good guess." He appeared behind me after a moment. I tipped my head back to look at him. His green eyes were darker now, smoky jade and hot with desire. "You're really sexy in a Toby McGuire Spider-Man kind of way."
"I don't have any superpowers," I replied as he leaned over and placed his hands on either side of my head.
"Not true," Rocket whispered before covering my mouth with his. My eyes drifted shut as my fingers knotted up the bedding. His mouth was hot and wet, his tongue skilled, his taste a subtle blend of Korean buffet. "You're Riley Zeally," he murmured between nibbling kisses that made my heart pump faster, "the face of professional hockey."
I reached up from the duvet to push my fingers into his hair. "I want you," I panted between his short, maddening sweeps of my mouth.

BOOK 5: THE BROTHER AND THE RETIRED HOCKEY PLAYER by: MARY SMITH: 

Kian has taken care of his superstar hockey brother for years, something his ex didn't understand his need to do. When Kian runs into retired hockey player Tim, has he finally found someone who understands his need to look out for his brother, even though Kyson doesn't need him around as much anymore? 
Can Tim and Kian make a go of it? Do they even want to? This is a really good short story that leaves me wanting more of her work!

                                              the 4 Locked Office Door rating :P

BELIEVE ME GUYS, THIS RATING IS PERFECT FOR THIS STORY! HERE IS A SHORT EXCERPT: 

Our lips touch, and the spark is struck. He pulls me closer and grips my hips. I can feel his hardness already, and my dick twitches at the contact. Our kiss intensifies as our tongues touch. I hold him closer, and the light scruff of his pale beard tickles me. I never want to leave this spot, but finally, I pull back.

BOOK 6: TAKE A SHOT by: SAMANTHA WAYLAND: 

It isn't until his best friend and team mate Chris gets hurt on the ice that Tim starts to question his feelings for him, he fusses like a mother hen, and neglects his girlfriend to what may be the ruin of his relationship, and even that he isn't sad about. 
Can these two deal with their feelings? Does Chris even feel the same? Tim might be surprised! You will love this one, and both these guys for sure! 

                                                          the 5 Pinkie Pie rating :D!

HAHAH, YOU WILL LOVE THE REASON FOR THAT RATING PIC! HERE IS AN EXCERPT: 

“There already is someone who loves to spend time with you, who loves hockey and your friends and their ridiculous pranks. Who gets that you have to travel and that you’re tired!”
Tim blinked, appearing utterly bewildered. “Who?”
“Me, you asshole! Me.”
Tim threw his hands in the air. “What about you?”
“I appreciate you exactly as you are. I love our life. Our friends. You. Even the super fucking irritating things, because apparently there is something wrong with me. I love that you can’t hide what you’re feeling, almost ever. And that you say what you’re thinking, even when I can’t do the same. I like living with you, a fucking neat-freak nudist, and working with you, and there’s never been a time, not once, that I was tired of being around you. You’re gorgeous and you’re kind and you’re the best person I know. So shut up about there not being someone who can appreciate everything about you. There already is. And unfortunately for you, it’s me.”
:) HERE IS A BIO ON SAMANTHA:

Samantha Wayland

Samantha Wayland has three great loves in life; her family, writing books, and hockey. She is often found apologizing to the first for how much time and attention is taken up by the latter two, but they forgive her because they are awesome and she clearly doesn’t deserve them.
Sam lives with her family—of both the two and four-legged variety—outside of Boston. When she’s not locked away in her home office, she can generally be found tucked in the corner of the local Thai place with other socially-starved authors and an adult beverage.
