Against the Boards (Indianapolis Eagles Series Book 5) by Samantha Lind


Reese Blackwood

I’m called America’s sweetheart.
They say I have the voice of an angel.
I almost gave all that up, thanks to a traumatic experience at the start of my career. Instead of letting it define me, I chose to rise above. I showed everyone what a woman on a mission could accomplish, and now I’m living my dream.

After one chance meeting, my entire world changes. Austin is every woman’s fantasy, and he wants me. While the attraction is there for me as well, I don’t need any distractions right now.

Austin Jones

I’m the man I am today because I never let the idea of settling down disrupt being the best I can during my hockey career.

But then Reese floats into my life and everything changes, and now all I want to do is pin her against the boards.

They say opposites attract. You can’t get more opposite than Country Music’s hottest female singer and a hockey player from Canada. With competing travel schedules, our instant attraction appears to be doomed from the start. Can it really be love? Or is it just a hot ice-melting fling?

My Review:

Against the Boards (Indianapolis Eagles Series Book 5)Against the Boards by Samantha Lind

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was so exciting! A country music star and a hockey player!?! Talk about a power couple! But really, this book was fun, and I think probably one of my favorite sport romances so far this year!

Reese is a country music singer, in the midst of her first world tour. Her professional star is rising, but she has pushed aside any hopes for a personal relationship. Until she meets Austin, a hockey player with the Indianapolis Eagles. There is an immediate connection, but with her tour schedule, and his game travels, they have very little time to spend together. Not letting that keep them apart, they use technology to get to know one another.

I love sports romance, hockey in particular, and I’ve adored all of the Indianapolis Eagles books. This one was just as fabulous, if not more so, as the rest of the series. While there was plenty of time spent with the team, this book was focused more so on how they managed to build a relationship despite distance, lack of time together, and the stress of two very busy careers. Reese and Austin are a sweet couple that tug at the heart strings and are sure to become a favorite of readers!
