RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW ~ PUCK LOVE by Carmen Jenner
Title: Puck Love
Author: Carmen Jenner
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: October 3, 2017
Stella Hart is the hottest thing in country music. For ten years, she’s been Nashville’s darling. She’s pure, sweet, and a positive role model in an industry rife with scandals, sex, and sequins. Men want to own her, women want to be her—everyone wants a piece of her, and Stella? Well, she wants out.
As the center for the Calgary Crushers, Van Ross isn’t afraid of the spotlight, but he doesn’t much like it either. Despite his reputation as a player, the NHL’s bad boy lives for only two things: the game, and his younger brother. That’s why when he comes across a country music superstar seeking refuge at his home in the Canadian Rockies, he’s not too happy with the media shitstorm this surprise houseguest brings.
With a nationwide manhunt, paparazzi dogging their every move, producers of a reality TV show baying for blood, and a record label desperate to see their “good girl” returned safely home, Van and Stella’s lives are snowballing out of control.
While Van would like nothing more than to show the purest of them all how well he handles his er ... stick, Stella is no puck bunny. Nor is she as innocent as she’d have the world believe.
With chemistry like theirs, tension runs high on and off the ice, but the end game is the same for both players: line up the puck, take the shot, and score. If only their hearts understood the play.
Puck fame and fortune.
Puck right and wrong.

“What are you running from?” I say, echoing the me from several months ago when this strange and beautiful creature had arrived on my doorstep, lost, and seeking refuge from a world that might have destroyed a lesser woman.
She takes several steps back until there’s nowhere left to go but on top of the counter. “I’m not running from anything.”
I press against her. She’s stiff as a board. That makes two of us. “I miss you, Stella. I jack it every day thinking about you, sometimes twice a day. I want you.”
“You can’t have me, Van.”
“Bullshit,” I hiss. I slide my hand into her hair, and pull her closer. I lean in, but I don’t kiss her. “Tell me you miss me. Tell me you’re thinking about me, too.”
“I don’t . . .” She shakes her head, but her breath is hot and heavy against my face. “I’m not.”
I close my eyes and rub my cheek against hers. My stubble is likely scratching her delicate skin, but she doesn’t pull away, and I slide my hand under her shirt. She’s braless. I groan. All those long days and nights she tortured me at the cabin by wearing only my flannel shirts with no bra, and probably no panties either, for all I knew. This little cock tease needs a taste of her own medicine.

I loved this story, fun sexy and a little emotional...what wasn't to love.
When country singer Stella runs away mid show, she knows she is committing career suicide but she cant bring herself to care enough. Living a life that she isn't 100% sure she wants is to much she needs time to decide what her future holds. However she never thought she would find herself alone and stranded in the snow.
Van Ross and his brother Ethan were at the concert. Ethan loves Stella and was left disappointed and upset when she ran off stage. Travelling home they come across Stella crashed into the side of their mountain. So they become her night in shining Armour and take her home with them.
Staying with strangers, should worry Stella but she feels safe with them and the chemistry between her and Van is through the roof.
Van isn't looking for a relationship but Stella intrigues him and makes him feel and want thing he hasn't done before.
How long can she stay hidden away from her management team and her fans?
And what will happen if or when they find out who she has been staying with?
This couple were great together and their connection was very raw. I loved Vans passion for caring for his brother and their relationship was fun to read.
Stella fit into their world perfectly. I was rooting for them from the very beginning...but when Stella's past and present collide my heart was beating out my chest!
