BLOG TOUR, REVIEW, & #GIVEAWAY - Parker (Face-Off Series #1) by Jillian Quinn

Book & Author Details:

by Jillian Quinn
(Face-Off Series #1)
Publication date: February 15th 2017
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


Former collegiate athlete and successful sports agent, Charlotte “Coach” Coachman, is a straight shooter who has a very strict policy—no dating clients. The loves of her life are coaching little league basketball and managing the careers of her players, leaving no room for men.

Coach hasn’t met an athlete she couldn’t handle and a deal she couldn’t close—until she meets Alex Parker—the NHL’s most notorious bad boy both on and off the ice.

Alex is the best defenseman in the league, breaking records along with hearts. He’s made a name for himself as a womanizer, and after a scandal involving the owner’s granddaughter, Alex is traded to Philadelphia. Still reeling from the loss of his father, Alex is on a downward spiral, drowning himself in booze and women, until Coach takes him under her wing.

She might be attracted to the sexy hockey star, and certainly not immune to his charms, but Coach can see that Alex needs her help, and coaching players is what she does best. Now that the lines are blurred and the passion between them is too strong to deny, Coach has to decide if Alex is worth making an exception to her rules.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

What an incredibly sexy and sweet read! Parker and Charlotte are two of the funnest characters to read about. Parker is definitely all alpha, cocky, and super sexy.  Charlotte is feisty, bossy, and takes no shit. They were a match made in heaven, Charlotte just didn’t want to accept it.

This book is full of laughter and love.  It’s serious in all the right parts and charming in others. It’s one of those stories that will leaving you feeling sappy when you finish the last word. They both have a heart of gold and their generosity towards others is heart melting.

As you read the story the author does a great job making sure you know exactly what’s going on. You can easily visualize the characters and scenery. You could close your eyes and visualize basketball practice or a hockey game. The bedroom scenes are less detailed but they are still pretty sexy.

I would love to read another book involving all of these characters, not just Parker or Charlotte.  Their chemistry is amazing and their personalities really jump off the pages.  It was such a fun read, I would read it again and would definitely recommend it to you!
