Author: Gina Azzi
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance
Release Date: September 8, 2022
Lioness. That’s the first word that comes to mind when I see the brilliant redhead selling cupcakes at the hockey arena.
With the soul of an artist and the spirit of a nomad, Bea Turner is gorgeous, quirky, and refreshing.
She’s also my teammate’s little sister.
As the Tennessee Thunderbolts’ Rookie, I should steer clear. I’m here to play hockey and provide much-needed financial security for my family. To do that, I need to avoid distractions.
Bea doesn’t just distract me; she flips my world upside down. One bad joke has me pursuing her. One date and I crave more. Calling her mine? Well, now I’m dreaming of a future.
The life of a hockey player — trades, travel, uncertainty — isn’t for the heart of a creative. Bea desires adventure and possibility, not early morning skates and strict exercise regimens.
When I’m thrust into a situation at odds with Bea’s dream career, I know I can’t hold her back. If we’re meant to be, we’ll make it work. But what if we’re not?
What if my greatest regret is letting my lioness go?
Review by Nancy
From cupcakes, to hockey, to art, this was one sweet story! I just loved how Cole was with Bea. Right from the beginning he was the perfect gentleman. Cole was so taken with Bea. It was breathtaking to watch. You will get many swoony moments with him in this book. It was a fantastic story about both of them overcoming fears, growing in character, and reaching goals. A lot more than a simple love story! If you’re looking for something steamy and sweet with a great story line, look no further than Rookie’s Regret. 4 stars!
