THE SCORE KEEPER
Release Date: March 3
Boston Hawks owner Scott Reland is my father’s biggest rival and the last man who should catch my eye. But when he does, I don’t look away.
We’ve circled each other for years, two outliers in a small club of NHL owners. We know the rules, manage similar pressures, and understand that this lifestyle — hockey over everything — isn’t for everyone.
Which is why I want out.
To prove to my father that I have a future beyond the New York Sharks, I score one for me and open a bakery in Boston, the city that reveres Scott.
It isn’t long until the dynamic and perceptive Hawk pursues me. And I’m entirely unprepared to be swept off my feet, cared for and supported after so many years on my own. Scott easily draws me back into the hockey life I thought I didn’t want.
But can our relationship survive the demands of this industry? Or will I always be keeping score, second to the game that dictates everything?

The Score Keeper is the ninth book in the Boston Hawks Series, but it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.
The Score Keeper follows the story of Scott and Noelle. For years, life kept throwing Scott and Noelle together. But, Scott being Noelle’s dad’s number one competitor could only mean trouble. Despite the trouble a relationship between the two could cause, a passion like theirs is too hot to ignite….
Overall, I found this book to be a quick and enjoyable read. I enjoyed the ease of Scott and Noelle’s relationship. Neither one of them was really looking for a relationship, but when you have chemistry like these two do, you can’t help but explore it.
Despite being Noelle’s father’s rival, Scott is a real standup guy. He’s older, more mature, and isn’t afraid of going after what he wants. When he’s into something, he gives it 110% of his support. And then we have Noelle. Noelle is desperately trying to make it on her own. She loves her father but doesn’t want to be a part of his world. She wants to pursue her own passions.
The road to happily ever wasn’t an easy one for Scott and Noelle. They had not only their careers to figure out, but also the obstacle of Noelle’s father. Seeing these two try to work together and overcome their issues had me rooting for them to find their way towards a happily ever after.
The Score Keeper is a fun and sexy sports romance. The characters are easy to relate to and root for. I was invested from the first page and was excited to see how everything would come together in the end. All in all, this was a great book to spend my day getting swept up in.
