Series: Sin City Saints #1
Author: Brenda Rothert
Genre: Hockey Romance
Release Date: September 21, 2021
The Vegas heat just kicked up a notch with the arrival of ice hockey’s newest expansion team – the Sin City Saints.
Maverick Hagen’s fall from grace was more like a crash landing. His record-breaking career ended after a fight with an opponent over a woman left him with a broken leg, or so the pundits thought. Returning to the sport he loves as the captain of the league’s new expansion team, the Sin City Saints, his lucrative contract comes with just one rule—no romantic distractions.
Gia Ford also makes her living playing a game—poker. The rounder has hit her stride in Vegas, quietly building her bank account one casino at a time. She’s got a score to settle, and nothing will get in her way—not even the sexy hockey player who’s willing to lose money just to see her in action. Maverick attracts attention, upsetting Gia’s under-the-radar game. Maverick and Gia can’t afford to give in to their magnetic attraction, with his career rebounding and her winnings growing. But the hotter their chemistry burns, the harder it is to deny. So will they or won’t they? In Vegas, there’s only one way to settle it—a bet, of course.

Every time I read a Brenda Rothert story, I tell myself I should really get on reading all her stories! Her stories are always full of life and I enjoy that because I enjoy reading realistic fiction or rather every day fiction. I enjoy storylines that mirror the possibility of real life and are relatable. I enjoy reading flawed characters going thru not just the good in life but also the hardship that comes along with it.
The story of Maverick and Gia was equal parts fun, flirty, humorous, sexy, entertaining, and not without its share of #feels! It was full of everything I love and captivated me from the beginning. Maverick and Gia worked well together and for each other. Their journey wasn’t always easy but yet their story was always hopeful. I can’t wait to dive into Pike’s story next!
