Hi, Everyone! Today’s post is both happy and sad. I am glad to get finally the third installment of Shot Point, by V>L. Locey. She is one of my favorite Authors of multi-genre stories. Please don’t quit reading because you aren’t a sports fan or don’t like Hockey. This book is about the lives of the characters and yes there is some hockey, but it is fun and relevant to the story. I am no sports fan, and I love this series. If you lie gay romance, I think you may like it. Warning: You will either love or hate Victor…Check out my review below. You do need to read all three books since this picks up where the story left off.
In Full-Strength Victor and his baby momma (yes, you heard correctly…curious yet?) have a very diversified taste in music. She likes the old disco type stuff. I asked V.L. if she would share with us Victors playlist.
Victor Kalinski’s Playlist
Victor is Kalinski is many things, many hard to take for some people. His musical tastes run to metal, the angrier the better. Here are five of Victor’s top bands/songs in no particular order because he couldn`t choose which he adored more.
1- Lamb of God – Walk With Me In Hell – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWkhCxCcWSE
2-Slipknot – Psychosocial – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5abamRO41fE
3-Trivium – Until The World Goes Cold – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pm-xlwkQ_qc
4-Five Finger Death Punch – House of the Rising Sun- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXYIxJScSik
5-Pantera – Walk – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkFqg5wAuFk
What a difference a year makes. Twelve months ago, Victor Kalinski was one of the best and most controversial ice hockey players in the pros. This year he’s playing in the minors, has a paternity case pending, and has just been vindictively outed to the world by one of his own teammates.
But he seems to find life in the tiny town of Cayuga to his liking. A large part of that is Dan Arou, the Cougars’ alternate captain and the man who now holds Victor’s heart. Surely venomous, viper-tongued Victor hasn’t been mellowed by love!
Well, perhaps a little. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t intend to get sweet revenge on those who’ve hurt the man he loves and the friends he’s somehow made along the way.
An adult gay romance from Ellora’s Cave
“Is there something about pregnant bladders?” I asked as Dan and I meandered through the convenience store while Heather used the bathroom.
“You’re asking me?” He picked up a package of nacho cheese flavored chips and tossed them into the basket riding in the crook of his arm. “Want some blue cheese corn chips?”
“Sure.” I followed the Munchkin with the killer ass. “So what the hell would have made her cry like that? I mean, is Manfred Mann that fucking sob-worthy?”
Dan shrugged a meaty shoulder. “I’d never even heard of Manfred Mann before this car trip. Think we should try to find something nutritious?” His lapis eyes, those eyes that fill my dreams, scanned the inside of the gas station-stroke-convenience store.
“You’ll be lucky to find doughnuts that haven’t been here since Nixon was in office,” I said as I lifted a box of uncooked macaroni and peered into the small cellophane window. “So is that normal? Crying over a fucking Manfred Mann song?”
“I think so,” he replied, then threw a box of powdered doughnuts into his basket. I yanked open a cooler on my right and extracted three bottles of milk, two chocolate and one white for Miss Weepy Britches in the powder room. “I’ve seen some shows about how women’s hormones are all over the place when they’re pregnant.”
“Hmm.” I glanced up when the bells over the door jingled. Heather bounced in looking cheerleader pretty. “You okay with all this?” Dan looked up from the rows of snack cakes to me, then to Heather chatting up the kid behind the counter. She was all white-toothed smiles and flowing golden hair. I’d bet that teenager staring at her like a besotted beaver had a boner so big it was probably tapping the alarm button under the countertop.
“With her, you mean?” Dan whispered. I nodded. He nudged me back a few steps, so Heather couldn’t hear us. “She’s okay,” Dan said glancing over his shoulder to make sure she wasn’t coming toward us then looking back at me. New whiskers covered his cheeks and neck. I had an urge to slam him against the wall and grind my face against his body, starting at his neck then making my way downward until his balls were pink and tender from the abrasion of my whiskers against them. “Stop thinking about sexing me up.”
A sly smile tugged at my lips. Fuck, but he knew me well.
5 meows and 4 purrs ( explicit sexual content and language)
Full Strength is the third and final book in the point shot trilogy. I suggest if you haven’t read the other two you skip this review since this book pick up where the other two left off.
While we await the paternity test results to see if the child Heather is carrying is Victors, we also have Dan and Victor dealing with the media after being outed and Victor being Victor seeking revenge on the scumbag that outed them.
Victor is not the typical male romance heart-throb. Actually, he isn’t a heart-throb ( that’s more Dan’s job). Victor is outspoken, loud, rude, crude and a real jerk to put it mildly. I absolutely love him! That is one thing I love about V. L. Locey’s books. Her Characters are not the typical and always very interesting.
Don’t let this being a hockey romance throw you off. I am no fan of sports but I love this story. It is easy to read and follow the hockey action, the rest of the story is so intriguing and fun and the story centers around the life of the characters more than the sport itself.
If you like a good romance, Hockey, different characters don’t mind a leading man that is a jerk, like baby’s, a bit of satire and humor and, of course, some hot man-sex you have to read this series!
