Lauren Blakely scores with another MFM hockey romance winner in Puck Yes, the second book in her My Hockey Romance series. Blakely’s writing is addictive, amusing and amorous in these kinds of stories. As a long-time reader, I believe that these kinds of character-driven romances are made for Lauren’s special style of storytelling. Set against the high-adrenaline backdrop of professional hockey, Blakely takes her readers on an unputdownable journey of passion on and office the ice as these characters skate off into a complex relationship.

I listened to the audiobook, and the chemistry between Teddy Hamilton, Jacob Morgan and Samantha Brentmoor was effortlessly natural and wildly entertaining. They delivered phenomenal independent and collective performances, breathing life into the characters through my Air Pods.

The chemistry between Ivy, Stefan and Hayes was so smoking hot, it’s a miracle the ice they made their living on didn’t melt. This throuple was as in-sync with each other as the first line of championship team, but what really did it for me was how obsessed the heroes were with the heroine—I loved that for her. Their chemistry wasn’t just sexual, though. Their witty and sharp dialogue was the perfect foundation for to the snappy banter between these characters, and a genuine connection between all of them was evident in all aspects of their relationship.

Puck Yes by Lauren Blakely was a scorching-hot and heartwarming tale that had me cheering for the throuple from start to finish. The evolution of this trio’s unconventional relationship from friends with benefits to something more meaningful is expertly paced, making the emotional payoff incredibly satisfying. The workplace hockey backdrop adds an exciting and unique twist to the story, and the undeniable chemistry between the characters is absolutely scorching. Blakely’s addictive storytelling shines through as she wove this loving, lustful tale about the importance of taking chances. A passionate, clever and heartfelt sports romance with a twist, Blakely’s second MFM romance is as satisfying as the game-winning goal in the last game of the Stanley Cup finals. Five smooches from me for Puck Yes by Lauren Blakely!
