Sweet ending to there series...

This is the final book in the Hot Jocks Series and rookie hockey player Jordan "Jordie" Prescott and his coach's daughter, Harper's story entailing a charity auction and a bet. As the coaches daughter and living in the sport life she always set a rule for herself not to date players. Jordie wins a date with Harper (at the time of the bet he did not know who she was) and is determined to change her mind on going out with him. His persistent and the great lengths he goes through to get Harper to go out with him will have you feeling awww.

Narrators Teddy Hamilton and Savannah Peachwood was a good listen portraying Jordie and Harper. They brought some personality to the characters on their growing connection. Two people with personal histories that makes wanting more with anyone can be challenging. When all is said and revealed the question is whether they can take the risk for more.

This was a sweet ending to the series. Snippets of the characters from the other book was an added bonus. You cannot help but fall for all the Hockey players in this series and their stories.

Sweet story

This is a sweet story not terribly original but worth the read. The narration bothered me when the voices were faked by the opposite person. Like if he was thinking a narrative, he faked a the girl voice and vice versa. I can’t understand why they did that when there was both a female and male narrator available to speak the part.

Happy Sad

If it could be possible to be happy sad. That is what I am. I am happy to finally get Jordie’s story but sad this is the last book in this awesome hockey series. The Seattle Hawks are more than just a team, they are family. This is what I loved most about this series.

Jordie is a rookie on the team. Cocky and self-assured in his talents on and off the ice. His one challenge to get Harper to go on a date with him. How do you get a woman who has vowed not to date a hockey player to date one? This is the journey that kept me reading and once he got her. How does he keep her? The story was more than sigh worthy. It was swoon worthy with a bit of cringe worthy moments. I was her for all of it.
Although I’m sad to see this series end I am glad I was in for the whole thing.

These narrators are fabulous!!

I just can’t believe the Hot Jock series is over. It’s been so amazing to meet all these guys and their amazing ladies! Jordie is the “baby” of the group and after watching all his friends find happiness, he’s ready for a bit of his own. Of course he chooses Harper, the coach’s daughter. Harper does not go down without a fight and Jordie plans to come out on top! I adored these two and the fun and flirty banter they tossed around. Now’s the time to binge this series!

The narration by Teddy Hamilton and Savannah Peachwood were simply amazing together, just like always! I swear, I could feel the smiles on both their faces when they were flirting back and forth… as if it was a real situation. They not only sound fantastic bringing that story to life but they made it come alive right in my mind!

Loved this Fun and Steamy Romance!

I loved this fun & flirty, heartwarming, steamy romance! Harper is the coaches daughter and her life has been transient as she follows her dad from one city to the next for his job. She only wants to have roots, good friends, and a stable home and family. She does not want to fall back into the hockey lifstyle so she refuses to date a hockey player. Jordie is living his dream playing professional hockey and enjoying the lifestyle that goes with it. But he likes what his friend and team captain, Grant, has with the love of his life, and thinks it's about time to settle down. The first meet cute between Harper and Jordie is hilarious as she puts him in his place. But Jordie is a professional competitor and loves the challenge. As they get to know each other, both their opinions about each other change. Harper sees how kind and thoughtful and charming Jordie is and Harper becomes more than a challenge to Jordie, she is the one! But when secrets come to light it could tear them apart for good. Teddy Hamilton, and Savannah Peachwood did a great job bringing this story to life. They have great chemistry as Hamilton made me swoon over Jordie and Peachwood made Harper so relatable. They really made this heartwarming, sweet and sexy romance even better!

Good

3.5 stars

Some books we love and some books just don’t hit the spot. This is one of those books for me. I love the author and narrators but this book wasn’t for me. I enjoyed others in the series though, so don’t let this put you off. It’s just a personal taste thing.

Jordy was a nice guy, I really liked him in the previous book, and I loved his interactions with Harper and his want to do whatever it took. Harper was great, even if her ‘no hockey player’ rule wasn’t really explained or at least didn’t come across as important enough for the way she treated Jordy to begin with. She came across as the Ice Princess she was pretending to be at the auction. Once she finally gave in, they were great together. I liked the updates on the couples from the previous books. It ended well, and I was happy that the conflict didn’t last long, that with a little communication they were able to get themselves back on track and in love.

Teddy Hamilton and Savannah Peachwood were great as Jordy and Harper. They bring the characters to life and deliver such fantastic performances.


I have to be honest, I’m not a huge fan of bets. It shows such a disregard for the person. Now, I’ve read and listened to some that made it work, but for me, this book doesn’t fall into that category. Jordy never tried to put an end to it and allowed his teammates-his friends to speak about it in such a jerky way. The fact that the subject was also their coach’s daughter, just didn’t make sense or sit well with me. Had this been the first instead of the last book, I don’t think I would have listened to any more in the series.

Jordan wow!

4 stars! loved every book in this series and the audios have all been amazing.

I loved Jordan he was just amazing, at beginning typical jock with his bet but he was just a sweetheart who wanted to be loved.

Harper I did like she grow more on me once give Jordan a chance. I understood why she didn’t date hockey players but I felt like it wasn’t resolved. I thought she of spoken to her dad about it and get closure or what really happened with her parents as her sister made it sound like more.

I will recommend this whole series to anyone wanting to read a hockey romance book!
