Book Review: Offside by Juliana Stone

When hockey phenom Billie-Jo Barker returns home and decides to play in the local Friday night hockey league, all hell breaks loose. Not because Billie's talent is in question, but because Billie is a woman. And though these are modern times, some of the local guys still have a problem letting a girl into their 'men's club.'

Soon, Billie is at the center of a small town battle of the sexes, with everyone choosing sides. Her sisters. The townsfolk. Her friends. And yet, the only person whose opinion she cares about doesn't seem to care much at all. Logan Forest, the man who broke her heart when she was eighteen and the man she now shares the bench with every Friday night.

She's got a lot to prove and though Billie Jo Barker scores on the ice, will this girl ever score with the man of her dreams?

My Review:

First of all, I love when a Romance series focuses on family members and as you are reading about the current lead character you can not wait for the stories of the supporting cast. That happens in this one from the get go. Talk about small town to the core, everything about this from the "twins" names to the gossip. 

Billie-Jo is a kick butt heroine in so many ways. She isn't afraid to play with the men and is confident in her abilities as well she should be. But having grown up such a tom-boy, she seriously missed out on the "romance and relationship" aspect of life. She's harbored a huge crush that in the past bordered on obsession on Logan Forest. So what happens when he finally starts showing interest back? Super Chemistery, Secrets and Betrayals, and a whole lot of sibling drama.

I love this series and can not wait to read more!
