I’ve just finished one of the most scrumptious, delicious series ever.
Should you read these books in order?
God. Yes. It will pack more punch..
Denver Rebels Order of Books:
#1 Wicked Games
#2 The Swede
#3 Sin Bin
I know Summer is soon on our heels, but these hockey players are hitting the ice and blazing the pages with romance in Maureen Smith’s Denver Rebels series. I read the first two already and you can view my review of them on my Amazon Page.
Right now, I want to review Sin Bin..
In Sin Bin(Book 3 in Denver Rebels), we meet Logan “The Bruiser” Brassard the tough, sexy sinfully hot hockey player for the Denver Rebels- and certified “manwhore”. With a past that left emotional scars that runs deep as his soul, Brassard constantly finds himself in the “Sin Bin”, constantly called out for fights on the ice. But then, he was always a fighter, especially back when he was a kid protecting Jupiter, the nickname for the little girl who was constantly bullied.
Fast forward about fifteen years later, and the “little girl” Meadow Ryan is all curvy and beautiful; she finds herself leaving Sin City to find work in Denver. When she runs into her foster friend Logan, she can’t deny her attraction to him. He still calls her Jupiter because of her love of astronomy(so sweet!). Even though Meadow is attracted to him and it is obvious he wants her bad, she does not want to get hurt again and Logan’s reputation does precede him…
First, this was 800+ pages of slow burn deliciousness and I am here for it. I tried to read it slower as advised by the author herself but darn it how can I? Each one broken inside because of their past: Logan was abused and so was Meadow and now they’ve found each other. The book was well paced, even with their sex scenes. It was more than sex whatever Logan was doing to her, letting me as the reader know Meadow was definitely treasured higher than any “puck bunny” he’d lain with.
Secondly, I like how the author introduces social commentary while keeping the juice of the story flavorful. The mentioning of “pro black women”, sexual abuse, black men who don’t date black women comes up in a few conversations and it did not distract but added to the book.
I definitely can’t wait for Hunter and Cynara’s story. I know that one will be beyond explosive. It would be nuclear.
