Denault launches a new series, featuring the bad boys of the San Francisco Thunder, with gusto, passion and heaps of tension and sensual detail. Several genre-defying complications makes the story feel unexpectedly fresh. Moreover, the consistent reinforcement of the female characters’ strength and individuality turns this book into something unique, and provides plenty of incentive for fans of sport romances to seek out this new series without delay.” –RT Book Reviews

Sexy, sassy, and a perfect new adult read for fans who love hockey and romance, not necessarily in that order. An excellent new sports series launch.” –Library Journal


He’s used to winning, but now he’s playing with his heart.

Jude Braddock. Hockey god. That’s how everyone sees him now. But when they were teenagers, Zoey knew him as the kid who didn’t have enough nerve to make a move on their one and only disastrous date. Seems he doesn’t have that problem anymore, though. According to the rumors, he’s with a different woman every night. After a rough divorce, the last thing Zoey needs is more heartbreak. But Jude’s cocky, playful attitude is mighty hard to resist.

Jude knows he isn’t built for long-term relationships. But he’s getting sick of women pounding on his door in the middle of the night looking for a rematch. When Zoey comes back into his life, it’s like fate has given him a second chance. He’ll do anything to make her happy again. Is this what love looks like? He has no idea. All he knows for sure is that this time, he’s playing for keeps.



I received a copy via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

I am absolutely infatuated with Victoria’s gorgeous hockey players and am always ready and willing to jump back in bed with another one of her muscled, hard playing heroes and the feisty, independent women that they fall in love with. There is never anything better than starting a new fresh series with lots of characters to get to know and Victoria not only has us falling head over heels for her couple but also gives us a trio of women, Jude’s sisters, that had me rolling on the floor laughing at their sibling antics. It wasn’t long before I was wrapped up in all these character’s angst and desire and begging for more!

Jude Braddock is a delicious player in more ways than one. He not only has sexual innuendos that could cause any women’s libido to go up in flames, he has a heart that shows through in everything he does for Zoey… even if he can’t get his head out of his ass long enough to realize that he is in love and not just lust. I absolutely adored Jude and his risqué selfies, naughty text, and killer bod. I couldn’t help but love every minute with this smooth talking hero, especially when he called Zoey “sunset”… sigh! He has the perfect combination of “rough around the edges” and is all heart when it comes to his family and Zoey. He charmed me in every way! 

Zoey Quinlin is an independent woman that finds herself in an estranged, crumbling marriage that is leading to a very messy divorce and has turned her whole life upside down. Just when she thinks life can’t get any more chaotic, in walks the sexiest man from her past that puts her heart and desire sent into a tail spin. If only it wasn’t the worst timing… or is it? Zoey captured my heart and admiration with her struggles, character, and fortitude to pick up the pieces of her life and start anew. We could all learn something from a character who redefines herself and keeps going when the world comes crashing down around her. 

Victoria Denault delivers a funny, heartfelt, steam up your glasses start to a new series that is sure to have all of her readers coming back for more! I highly recommend Score for a book that will introduce a whole new team of hockey players to drool over and fall for. Victoria always gives her fans what they are looking for whether it is on the ice or in the bedroom. So pull up a chair ladies and get ready to get down and dirty with the San Francisco Thunder hockey players that are sure to rock your world!
