The First Intermission (Indianapolis Eagles, #6) by Samantha Lind
The core group of friends who found their happy endings are back, still loving hockey almost as much as their women. Now, four years later, the Eagles find themselves in the finals, with home ice advantage and on the cusp of winning the Stanley Cup once again.
It all started with a second chance, for Becca to just say yes to forever.
And is Kinley still living the dream after scoring the player?
What does life have in store for Madison and Richard, now that they decided playing for keeps is much more satisfying than friends with benefits.
When Mark vowed to Laura he would protect her heart, he meant it from the very beginning. He was all-in, forever, no matter what.
Reese and Austin’s chance meeting turned their worlds upside down in a single instant. Hot and heavy against the boards had their chemistry melting the ice.
Along with retirements, new positions, and additions to not only the team, but each of the families, come meet some new players who will lead us out of the First Intermission and into the second period.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book was so much fun, and totally different from most of the other books I’ve read recently. This book, book 6 in the Indianapolis Eagles Hockey Series, is not a complete romance story, and should not be read with that expectation. The author has written this book to be more of a transition.
This story takes place several years after the other books, and lots of changes are happening. Life has moved on for the Eagles players, and their families. Older players are retiring, and finding that there is life after hockey. Younger players are moving up to begin their lives with the Eagles. Kids are growing up, and babies are being born. But underneath it all, they are all still one big, happy family!
I loved the follow up that this book provides for the much loved characters from previous stories. It’s something we don’t always get. I loved meeting all of the new babies, seeing how much the characters are still in love. I also loved meeting new characters, and seeing the possibilities that the author has in store for us in the upcoming books! In short, this book was a great story, and I can’t wait to see what is coming next!
