R E V I E W ➠ Hold Me Forever by Layla Hagen


As the hockey league’s star goalie, I live by three simple principles:
1. Keep a pristine image.
2. Work hard on the ice.
3. Don’t piss off the bosses…too much.

I was killing it until a mishap tarnished my image. Now, management has me cleaning up my reputation and coaching a bunch of kids. And damn, those little punks are growing on me, and so is the program coordinator, Kendra.
I’m hellbent on proving myself, but my attraction to Kendra takes me by complete surprise. Her defenses are up, but I like a good challenge.
Management’s directives are clear: “Kendra is off-limits.”
But there’s a reason I’m the best. I won’t let anyone stand in the way of what I want.

RELEASE DATE: Jan 18, 2022

Not new to me author but one where I have given it many tries and I just could not get into the writing style. I really love sports romances and wanted to give this a try as well. I am still the same on not being able to connect with the writing style but that’s just my personal preference. I did enjoy the cute story and their connection.

The hero is a hockey player nursing an injury. A passionate one at that, he loves to help and one of his things is volunteering with children. That is where he meets the heroine, she is a volunteer coordinator and they pretty much hit it off from the beginning. Their chemistry was there and at times it was fun and at times it was very hot and heavy. Both of them complimented each other and I also enjoyed the side characters and family dynamic.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
