One accident – a freaking car crash. That’s all it took to send my life into a tailspin.
Little did I know that out of the wreckage, everything would fall into place. I would get everything I had ever worked for.

Little did I know that I would find the woman who would cross check my life, flipping everything upside down.

Even though she’s melting the ice that surrounds my heart, I’m still waiting for the other shoe to drop. Will I ever be able to find my footing or am I destined to stay pinned against the boards?

Note: Cross Checked is the second book in the Shots On Goal Series. It can be read as a standalone, has a happily ever after, and does not have a cliffhanger. There are character crossovers from Hat Trick (book one in the series) which is also a standalone with a HEA and no cliffhanger.

My Review:

4 Stars!

This second novel in the Shots on Goal series is a great follow up. This time we get Brayden and Karla’s story. Their story is kind of unique and super sweet.

Brayden and Kayla met under less than ideal circumstances when Bradyen’s sister was in the hospital. At the time, Kayla was the night shift nurse caring for Brayden’s sister and she was dating a guy she thought was the one. Brayden only cared about playing hockey and taking care of his sister. Turns out, neither one of them had the dream they wanted. Years later, they run into each other again and this time, sparks fly.

I enjoyed this book. Frankly, Brayden was kind of a jerk in the first book. He was controlling of his sister, out of love of course, and just not exactly a nice guy. I’m glad we got to see the other side of Brayden. Karla was perfect for him and I liked seeing them get to know each other and fall in love. The both deserved their happy endings.

Mazzola gives us another sweet, contemporary, sports romance with characters you can’t help but love and a story that endears you.

I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time “day job” and by night I am an author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.

Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I’d like or just to shoot the, well you know.
