    One thought on “Power Play”

    1. You don t have to be a hockey fan to enjoy this series But you must be a fan of hot men playing hard ON and OFF the ice Power Play, which CAN be read as a standalone, is my favorite book of the series thus far, and it will be hard to top.Misha and Max have a history Misha is the man who delivered the hit that ended Max s brief hockey career Misha was given a fifteen game suspension, even though the hit was legal and Max s injury an accident, but he s still punishing himself years later Misha is [...]

    2. HAPPY RELEASE DAY How much did I like this book Enough for CORGI GIFS This is the third book in Avon Gale s Scoring Chances series and while I loved the first two books, I believe this is now my favorite.Power Play is a bit different from the first two books because the two heroes are former hockey players and now coaches for the same team, the Spartanburg Spitfires Don t worry, there is still lots of hockey action But the relationship between Max, a former player who retired from the game becau [...]

    3. Another awesome audiobook in what is shaping up to be a KILLER series Hockey is my new crack, baby, and Avon Gale is my main dealer Power Play was surprisingly low angst, like the other books in the series, despite having the potential to be a total downer This book was fun and sexy, with a smattering of seriousness and a big scoop of feelz Max is new to bisexuality, having discovered that he likes men as well as women after a particularly revealing trip to Mexico He, like many other characters [...]

    4. The third book in the Scoring Chances series, Power Play, will be out May 9th This book takes us from the Sea Storm in Jacksonville to the Spitfires in Spartanburg, South Carolina The Spitfires have two coaches with a history, a sleazy owner GM who likes making commercials set to 80 s power ballads and an intense, blue haired goalie with anger management issues and a past And there s some Bruins Habs shout outs Because it s me D

    5. 3.5 Stars UNPOPULAR OPINION ALERTI found myself feeling pretty meh about this one I mean I couldn t even hardly find any shelves to put the book ond I have a lot of shelves Nothing stood outgood or bad I will say 2 things 1 I actually finished this one though there was some skimming involved Which is a positive considering I DNF d the first book in the series and didn t even bother with the second 2 This was definitely the best book of the series Other than that I can t come up with much else to [...]

    6. I really liked both MC s, but the story didn t really punch me squarely in the feels, like I d hoped it would It felt a bit muted, especially compared to book 1, with Lane s irreverent, irrepressible antics.Definitely like, just not quite love this time out.I can t wait to read Isaac s book, and pairing him with the spitting asshole from the Ravens Oh Lord, I have really high expectations of where that plot s going to go in the next story.I d have to rate this one at around 3.75 stars See All My [...]

    7. I was the minority that didn t like Let the Wrong Light In, but I did like the author s short Christmas story So I went into this without any expectations Let me tell you that Avon Gale NAILED THIS ONE She nailed it This had the humor I expect from K.A.Merikan or Santino Hassell The characters were real and multi dimensional, the steam was just right, and the dialogue tight and meaningful I even liked the sports stuff, and I rarely like sports booksAD THIS BOOK It goes straight to my 2016 favori [...]

    8. Well.I can honestly say that this book is definitely my favorite of this series so far This time, we get hockey coaches instead of playersMisha and Max have both been hired to coach the Spitfires Misha as a headcoach and Max as an assistent coach What they don t know however is that they ve been hired as part of a publicity stunt by the general manager, because of a freak accident that has happend 5 years ago Max was injured during a game, to the point were he was not able to play hockey any Mis [...]

    9. 4.25 starsThis was DELIGHTFUL Seriously, I was having so much fun reading this one At first I was worried with the level of angst considering that Misha and Max s relationship started not in a very good way I thought Max would be having trouble with Misha as part of coaching team, and Misha would be ridden with guilt Boy, was I glad that those DID NOT happen Oh, Misha still had guilt even if the incident was not exactly his fault But Max, oh Max, sigh he was just like a steamroller machine I lov [...]

    10. review removed from GR An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review.

    11. 4.5 StarsPower Play is my favorite of this series, so far They just seem to be getting better and better We also get some delicious angst here, that wasn t in the first two books, so I am very happy right now.Misha and Max have a history on the ice and it s a bit of a painful one that cost them both their careers Max s because the accident was in the form of a head injury that killed his peripheral vision and Misha s because he never forgave himself, even though it wasn t his fault and was total [...]

    12. How do you recognize an amazing book Umm, noooo Not by choosing the most beautiful cover although I love the cover of this book, too No, you know that you are reading a great book when you simply devour it When you are so into the story that you can t stop reading When you send prayers heavenwards that nobody will disturb you and snarl at everyone who dares to do so When you are falling in love with the charactersPower Play was exactly this kind of book for me.I really enjoyed the first two book [...]

    13. Going to be honest, I m already rereading this book, and it s only been three days.I m just dipping my toe into Ms Gale, but she shows all the signs of being right up there with K.A Mitchell for comfort read and auto buy Which is saying something, because this book and all the others I ve read so far are about sports and I do not do sports Watch, play, or comprehend.But I love them in this book, and in all Gale s books so far Power Play isn t exactly enemies to lovers, and it s not an angst fest [...]

    14. I ve enjoyed every book in this series this one would easily stand alone, should you choose to start here The only links to the others are minor character references This book is perhaps the most emotional of the three so far, but still has a light, fun and warm overall tone Max s NHL career ended after a hard check that knocked him down, causing his head to hit the blade of a stick The freak accident damaged his peripheral vision, but he s not otherwise disabled by it He was bitter, and sad, ab [...]

    15. Might contain spoilers This book circles around assistant coach Max Ashford 29 and head coach Mikhail Misha Samarin 40 , who has a past with one another A past that ended their career as hockey players Now they are both coaching the worst team in the entire league Working together might seem hard, but they hadn t expected a fierce attraction towards each other And for Misha to face his past, which he has tried to forget But with Max s optimism and light humor, Misha might actually have a chance [...]

    16. Review originally posted atSinfully.4.5 starsI can always tell when I m reading an Avon Gale story To me, she has such a distinct voice and whether it s hockey talk, snarky internal musings or the interplay between the characters, her books always put a smile on my face I know I ve said it before, but her joy in writing these stories really does come through on the page.Initially hired as a publicity grab by the sleazy owner of the last place Spitfires, the two new coaches are smarter than they [...]

    17. I Loved this so much I couldn t put it down until i was through.Silly me I skipped this and went on straight to read Empty Net Not knowing what I was missing.Max and Misha were amazing as a couple They fit perfectly the chemistry was there from the start The banter was on point.Max well i adored him he was this happy, optimistic character who saw the good in everyone and funny too I loved how he embraced his bisexuality I m Russian, Misha said with the faintest hint of a smile We angst, Max I se [...]

    18. 4.5 StarsThe third story in the Scoring Chances hockey series delivers another fun, funny, low angst, sexy as hell and thoroughly enjoyable tale as I ve come to expect from Avon Gale.Misha Samarin and Max Ashford are hired to coach the Spartanburg Spitfires, the worst team in the ECHL, not just because team owner and General Manager Jack Belsey hopes they can turn the team around, but because of their mutual history The one where during the Stanley Cup Playoffs years ago Misha threw the hit that [...]

    19. 4.25 starsThe set up of Misha and Max s relationship is pretty ominous They have a history that s less than pretty But this isn t an enemies to lovers tale, because Max acts like an adult and doesn t let an accident consume him Any author that writes a mature and rational character deserves praise.However, this is an opposites attract romance, and I loved that Max is upbeat and always diving in headfirst, while Misha is a lot stern and cautious They made for a very entertaining pair from the be [...]

    20. 3.5 starsI liked it It was cute It had its funny moments I honestly enjoyed it But I m not fan girling over it And I really wanted to be Cuz everyone else is So I m underwhelmed Fuck.

    21. Avon Gale just nailed it I m so happy that I listened to you, Simone I thought it was going to be full of drama and angst because of the blurb that says Max couldn t continue with his professional career as a hockey player thanks to an accident that involved Misha on the ice Imagine my surprise when I see this is a feel good story the only one who s got a bit angsty was Misha but as he says, is a Russian thing Why did you do that Why didn t you take it I m Russian, Misha said with the faintest h [...]

    22. 2 stars sadly, it didn t work for me.Sadly because it got all I like mature MCs, hockey coaches challenged to make a good season from a team at the bottom, opposites attracted to each others, But the whole time, I couldn t connect with the characters With the story either it felt contrived The only moment I felt something was each time the author referred to one of the MCs as dumb that annoyed me.A popular book with great reviews, but this series is not for me.

    23. 4.5 StarsI freaking love this series, I wish I hadn t read the excerpt at the end of the booke I really, really want to continue on and read that book, badly

    24. Can I get a round of applause for my lord and saviour Avon Gale I sometimes can t believe that the first two books in this series are actually a part of this series Not only is the story of Power Play complex and generally better, but the writing of Avon Gale, in my opinion, also got better I was pushing myself to write a review for both Power Play and Empty Net last summer, which are, in my humble opinion, Avon Gale s best two books to this date, so I decided to reread both of them this month [...]

    25. El primer libro de esta serie lo DNF, no me gustaron los personajes, no me gust c mo estaba escrito, y en general lo encontr todo atropellado, sin emoci n, y con un desarrollo de los personajes muy superficial El segundo, tras leer cr ticas de amigos, ni lo intent Pero, a mi no me gusta cerrar puertas y tras las buenas cr ticas decid intentarlo con el tercero este y el cuarto Y bueno, el resumen ser a I liked it.Y es que es as , me gust , est bien, ven a de un libro duro y muy intenso y necesita [...]

    26. I m really not into books about sports But I m so glad I read this one, because it was great This is about two hockey coaches, Max and Misha, who are trying to get the worst team ever to win some games.I loved these guys together There s not a lot of relationship angst almost none , even though the guys get involved rather quickly at the beginning of the book I was wondering what would go wrong to keep the story interesting , but I was glad the author didn t pull that shit on us.I also really lo [...]

    27. 4.5 starsMy favourite Avon Gale This was fun and not too angsty I enjoyed the hockey talk although I think this would be classified as hockey light for those that are scared away from hockey romance The best part of this, though, was the characters and their romance Max was so sweet and good for Misha and Misha was awesome and so needing and deserving to be loved I also liked that there was no unnecessary drama or angst in their relationship But, but was that it I wanted Maybe an epilogue or lo [...]

    28. 3.5 starsI enjoyed this but unfortunately it didn t have the magic of the first two books for me On the positive I think this author does hockey stories better than any other author I ve read in the hockey romance genre She knows her game and her love for it comes through If you re not a fan the details aren t overwhelming but if you are a fan there are all kinds of comments about teams players etc that will make you smile You know you re reading something by a true fan I loved the part of the s [...]

    29. Although I still love this series, I didn t connect quite as much with these characters as I did with the previous ones Maybe it was because these guys are older or maybe it was because they were coaching instead of playing I m not completely sure While I felt bad for their pasts, it didn t really pull on my heartstrings Both men had moved on and mostly overcome their past hardships at the point where they get together There wasn t a lot of drama in their relationship and even their sex scenes f [...]
