Book Review : Heated Rivalry (Game Changers #2) by Rachel Reid


Nothing interferes with Shane Hollander’s game—definitely not the sexy rival he loves to hate.

Pro hockey star Shane Hollander isn’t just crazy talented, he’s got a spotless reputation. Hockey is his life. Now that he’s captain of the Montreal Voyageurs, he won’t let anything jeopardize that, especially the sexy Russian whose hard body keeps him awake at night.

Boston Bears captain Ilya Rozanov is everything Shane’s not. The self-proclaimed king of the ice, he’s as cocky as he is talented. No one can beat him—except Shane. They’ve made a career on their legendary rivalry, but when the skates come off, the heat between them is undeniable. When Ilya realizes he wants more than a few secret hookups, he knows he must walk away. The risk is too great.

As their attraction intensifies, they struggle to keep their relationship out of the public eye. If the truth comes out, it could ruin them both. But when their need for each other rivals their ambition on the ice, secrecy is no longer an option…

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

Christelle's rating:

That was damned hot and good. So different for me from the first book from this series, which didn’t do me anything and so glad I gave it a shot, hehehe !!!

It’s no secret I enjoy sports romance and this one worked very well for me : two sexy NHL Hockey players playing in different teams, one with an image of a badass and one with the image of the Golden boy but both very talented, kind of enemies-to-lovers development (competing on the ice against each other, portrayed as archenemies by the public, but with a very different dynamics when Shane and Ilya are behind closed doors), over a span of several years, with a sweet epilogue.

I kind of worried at one point as I felt it was stalling a tiny bit, but that was just a blip and then, it went to "tons-of-feels" zone, to my great pleasure and entertainment.

And thanks for the author not to try to make the characters more Russian or more French by attempting to write in a foreign language. That's very wise !!

And did I mention how HOT it was ? Scratch-an-itch sex, first-experience sex, angry sex, frantic sex, making-love sex,…yes, I think it was all there.

Now, I cross my fingers that there will be more in this series, with maybe some cameos of Shane and Ilya : I would love that !!

Btw, it's a standalone : you can either start with the first one of this series or go straight to this one.
