About this ebook

I met my dream girl. 

That’s right. She’s stunning and the worst bartender I’ve ever seen. 

I should have gone home and gone to sleep—dream girl or not. I had an early morning and the season was starting soon. But when she threatened me with boy band karaoke I couldn't help myself. I went. The stars aligned.

I have never felt more alive or wanted anyone more than I want her.

When it’s time for me to head on my annual pre-season boys trip, I barely let her go.

It’s been a week and I can’t stop thinking about her. 

Except there she is. Right here at the Wildcat’s kickoff party.

And as luck would have it, my dream girl is the coach’s youngest daughter. 

But everyone knows the coach’s daughter is off limits. Right?

Wildcat is a full-length sports romance with a hot-as-puck hero, the coach’s daughter, and an unfortunate case of mistaken identity.

The Wildcats are the youngest team in the NHL. On the ice, they’re cocky, determined, and ready to take the league by storm. Off the ice? They’re always up for a wild time.

*Audiobook -I really enjoyed this book. Forbidden stories are my jam and I liked the coach's daughter aspect. The way they meet really grabbed me from the beginning. Leo and Scarlett are really great characters. It's an interesting glimpse into living your life under the microscope of celebrity and paparazzi and how things aren't always as they seem. I like that Scarlett really grew to know what she will and won't accept in relationships. And Leo was so determined and patient. Just a great mix.

Swoony and sexy, heartfelt and fun- Wildcat is so delightfully adorable! What a fantastic beginning to the Wildcat Hockey world- I am simply obsessed with this couple! Our namesake character, our Wildcat heroine is hands down my favorite RJ heroine EVER. I’m seriously madly in love with her- she’s just so special, so unique, so relatable and so fun. She’s an unapologetic “mess”- and like, same girl. We’ve all been in her shoes, and I loved watching figure herself out. Working through her “mess” and learning to embrace that she beats to her own drum. Not only do we get an epic love story with her and Leo, but this is also really her love story with her life- her building her OWN path for herself after huge stepbacks, heartbreak, and detours. Her character voice is SO brilliant and perfectly captured- I feel like I know her so well. I loved all her relationships with her family, the specificity to her, her humour and sass, her vulnerability, her ridiculousness, her boldness with Leo. She’s so well rounded and dynamic as a character- and I found myself giddy every time I got to embody her mind. She’s just the best. And Leo- well SWOOOOOOOOOON. All RJ heroes have a swoony factor, but Leo is just so easy to fall for. He’s loyal, fun, affable, and kind- a reformed casual relationship guy who has found his dream girl and GOES HARD to win her, even though she’s the coach’s daughter. He's so dreamy, and all his sweet moments where he's figuring out how to get the girl are just so endearing. But I loved most just how supportive he is of Scarlet- he cherishes her “mess,” he has her back and lifts her up. And their chemistry is heart and panty melting. They fall so easily together. They help each other shine. The connection is both authentic AND fun- I just loved watching them flirt and bond so much. AND THEY ARE ALSO FIRE IN THE SHEETS! With every new series, RJ gets better and better, and this series starter has me SUPER excited for this Wildcat series. Not only do we get to spend some QT with my favorite RJ hero, but the Wildcats are hysterical and fascinating. I’m melting for each of them already, and I can’t wait to get all of their stories! I'm still desperate for Jack, but Ash now has my heart. he dynamic is great, each has a bit of mystery or personality dynamic that I want to break down more. I’m over the moon that I get to spend more time in this fantastic new Wildcat world- I have a feeling, it’s going to be my new favorite place to be.

4.5 Sweet & Swoony Stars! I loved this first book in the new Wildcat Hockey series! This is a swoony forbidden romance that will melt your heart. Leo, is a professional hockey player, who finds his 'dream girl' one night at a bar. They are finally able to meet, and have a night of fun and passion that neither can forget. Leo loved that she didn't know who he was, and that she liked him for who he truly was and not as a famous athlete. Leo wanted more of Scarlett, but with him starting a new season, he was afraid to promise something he couldn't deliver. Scarlett is home after traveling abroad with her ex boyfriend, who broke her heart. She is staying with her parents while she tries to find her way in the world. When her hockey coach father had a party for his team, Scarlett is blindsided that Leo isn't who she thought he was. Leo is also surprised his 'Dream Girl' is his coaches daughter, and is now off limits. As Scarlett figures out what she wants to do with her life, she starts working for the team. As she and Leo spend time at events together, they can't deny the fiery attraction between them. But can they be together without compromising the team? I loved these two so much. They are so perfect together, having fun together, supporting each other, and their chemistry leaped right off the page. I loved Scarlett's strength, and watching her find her passion. Leo is everything I love in my heroes. He was so kind, loving, protective and swoony. I loved getting to know all their quirky, supportive and protective family and friends as well. Aaron Shedlock and Desiree Ketchum did a great job bringing these characters and story to life. They delivered all the emotion, wit, heart, and steam, and I was totally lost in their performance. There are so many fun and awkward moments but lots of heartwarming and steamy moments that make this new series totally addicting. I can't wait for more of these swoony Wildcat hockey players!
