Brittanys Review

Writing Style Rating:🌟🌟🌟🌟

Storyline Rating:🌟🌟🌟🌟
Best friends sister is one of my favorite tropes and Alley does it justice.

Hero: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Heroine : 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Chemistry between h/H: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Smut Factor: 🌟🌟
There is a slow burn between these two Jake and Jordan. You are going to get some steamy scenes but not every other page.

Overall Thoughts: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
It seems like most of the time when I find a book to read the author has been on the scene for a while. Even a “new” author may still have at least a dozen books and a small following of hardcore fans. This week I had the honor to read and review two books from new authors. Power Play is the debut novel for Alley Ciz, so I will admit I was a little worried about what I would be reading, but I quickly learned there was no need. This sports romance is written with strong words as well as humor and wit. Jake is a devastatingly perfect hero with a big, kind heart. I was happy to see that even though he’s not virgin, he wasn’t the normal over the top man whore we get a lot from sports romance. Jordan is a strong and fiery heroine who is still taking her life back after a past abusive relationship. Oh, and did I mention she’s Jake’s best friends sister? You will love the slow burn you get steaming from the pages and swoon over the Jake and Jordan’s connection. Anyone who reads sports romance is going to love Power Play and what an excellent debut from Alley!

Hockey players are off limits…especially if they’re on your brothers’ team.

The last time Jordan did that, it ended in disaster. It was easy to promise her brothers she’d never date another one of their teammates again.
Until she meets Jake.
The spark she feels when she spends time with him makes her promise harder and harder to keep.
Surely her brothers would understand breaking this promise if it means following her heart.
Wouldn’t they?

Never sleep with a teammate’s sister.

This is the universal rule of athletes everywhere.
Until he meets Jordan.
As soon as Jake sets eyes on her, he wants her.
The goalie’s job is to see missed shots and failed opportunities on the ice.
This is one shot he’s not going to miss, no matter what obstacles get in his way.

POWER PLAY is a flirty, swoon worthy sexy rom-com and the first book in the BTU Alumni series. It can be read as a stand alone. If you like hockey boys, sarcastic friends, matchmaking K9’s, too-cute-to-handle kindergarteners, fierce heroines and swoony hot as puck Alpha heroes, then you want to get to know these cast of characters. One puck head and a HEA guaranteed.
