It wasn’t for me, but it wasn’t bad either. This series has been so easy to jump into whenever the tropes work for me, and some installments are simply better than others. I liked the uniqueness of this one; having a shy, toothless hero certainly felt fresh, and adding in the cam girl/voyeurism aspect was pretty interesting. Fitz is a total sweetheart, and I liked that he was so gone for his girl. It just felt like it moved really quickly. These two are already crushing on each other when the book begins, so it’s just a matter of crossing the line into the physical. It definitely felt sex-focused and surface level, and I never emotionally connected to the story. I also didn’t find Fitz to be a compelling hero for me personally; not just the voyeurism, but personality-wise too. So this installment wasn’t the right fit for me in the end, but I’m sure plenty of readers will enjoy it.
The story follows Fitz, a pro hockey player with a secret. He’s never fit in with the outgoing guys on his team, and admits to being a bit of a loner. Fitz has been crushing on a girl from afar, and he’s taken that crush to another level – after discovering that the cute girl from the local donut truck is also a cam girl who records herself doing mundane tasks in sexy lingerie, Fitz has become her biggest fan. Rosie brings out a side of Fitz that he’d love to explore further, and her videos have confirmed that he enjoys watching in a way that goes beyond the norm. As the two grow closer both in person and online, it’s only a matter of time before Fitz’s secret comes to light.
I’ve read several romance books that have involved cam girls, and this one felt a little different – fresh and distinct, in its own way. That’ll either be a pro or a con for you, and that’s okay. I liked how the book explored Fitz’s k!nk, and that it didn’t go in the expected direction either. There were just certain aspects to his personality that I didn’t connect to, and the lightning fast pace of the romance didn’t help either. Maybe it’s because so many romances are longer these days, it felt like we barely scratched the surface here and things went from zero to one hundred. I also think the book was bogged down by SO MANY characters from past books. The best part about this series for me has been that I can read them as standalones and know that I’m in for an easy, sexy romance. But there were appearances from pretty much every character from the series, and it was a lot to keep track of. So this might read better for fans of the series who have no trouble keeping track of everyone, and who enjoy a more mild, lust-focused romance with some k!nkier components.
To my fans, I’m known as Ivan Fitzgerald.
To my teammates, I’m just Fitz.
And to the girl I’ve been talking to online, I’m ShootsAndScores.
There’s no doubt in my mind that the woman on the other side of the screen is completely out of my league. Why wouldn’t she be? Sure, I’m a professional hockey player, but that doesn’t mean anything when I’m shy and awkward in the most basic social situations and she’s a fiery vixen who oozes sex appeal.
No matter how badly I want her, I can’t have her. Because the woman I love watching so much? The one I might be slowly falling for?
She’s not just some stranger on the internet. It’s Rosie, the woman who serves me coffee and donuts every morning.
And she has no clue it’s me.
NEUTRAL ZONE is a standalone sports romance novel. It features a hot, toothless hockey player, a curvy woman who is confident in her body, lots of fun banter, and STEAM!
My favorite from the series!
What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay there.
I would know. I’m coming home with a brand-new ring on my finger.
My wife? Ryan Bell.
We’re polar opposites.
She’s sunshine and happiness.
I’m grumpy and scarred—literally.
We could get it annulled and no one would be the wiser.
Only problem? We posted about it online, and it’s already making headlines.
I can’t afford to get that kind of attention and tank my career, and Ryan needs my help too.
We make a plan: stay married for one year, play our roles, and divorce amicably at the end. No harm, no foul.
Besides, there’s no way the beauty is going to fall for the beast…

Start the series today!
I’m having the definition of a bad year.
Game Six loss costing my team the Cup? Check.
Getting arrested and ruining my image? Check.
Almost getting run over after my car breaks down? Oh, look—a hat trick.
My contract is up with the Carolina Comets this year, and I need to get it together if I want to stay with the team.
I need relaxation, not a relationship.
But when I’m scrolling on a dating app and stumble across the pretty girl who almost ran me over, I know I can’t let her walk away this time.
Harper is funny, smart, and doesn’t care about hockey.
I’m not supposed to be focusing on anything other than my career, yet I can’t get Harper off my mind.
I know I shouldn’t fall for her…but I think I already have.
PUCK SHY is a standalone hockey romantic comedy. It’s good, low angst fun with some hot hockey players.
