Book Summary

He had total control of his game–until she changed all the rules . . .

As one of the best players in the NHL and the “golden boy” of the league, Avery Westwood knows he has to keep his cool–on and off the ice. His whole life is a carefully constructed image of perfection for the media and his brand sponsors. Of course, that means he can never let his true feelings show. But when it comes to the sexy sister of his former teammate, Avery might be willing to make an exception . . . even if it means breaking all his own rules.

As far as Stephanie Deveau is concerned, having a thing for Avery is the equivalent of psychological napalm. Très bad idea. Then he moves in next door, all sexy smiles and a deliciously hot body that she can’t resist. Something’s happening between them–it’s intense, a little (a lot) out of control, and real. Only Avery doesn’t know everything about Stephanie’s past. And the one exception to his rule might just be the one girl who could destroy his career.

My Thoughts

*ARC provided by Publisher*

On the Line is the fifth book in Victoria Denault’s Hometown Players series but even if you haven’t read the other books in this series, you can still read this because it’s written to stand alone. And it’s written really, really well.

I loved both Avery and Stephanie in this, and I loved the way their relationship built from a curious friendship to something more. Because it wasn’t that instantaneous love but something deeper, something that derived after a good foundation was laid down. Not a perfect foundation, because neither Stephanie nor Avery are perfect by any means, but they were really great for each other and they were better people because of each other, too.

If you’re looking for a great sports romance with an imperfect hero and heroine who struggle to stand on their own while also learning how to lean on each other, On the Line is a fantastic book to pick up. It’s sweet, sexy, heartwarming, and completely compelling to read. I highly recommend checking it out.
