Summary

Secretly hooking up with the team captain's sister was a bad idea. In my defense, the first time I saw her, I didn't know who she was. Kind, gorgeous, a little naïve. Ginny brightened my world from day one. I knew I was no good for her. She was just out of a relationship, and I had a reputation for having a new girl in my bed every weekend. 

I tried to do the right thing. Honest. I'm the one who insisted we should be just friends. That lasted about as long as you'd expect. 

But Ginny? She's the best - best friend, best everything. So yeah, hooking up with the team captain's sister wasn't a great idea. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat.

2.5 stars. Underwhelming

A giggly mundane girl gets with a very typical hockey player. They do boring college stuff. The end. I didn’t feel remotely connected to the characters or invested in their relationship development. It just seemed like a relationship they would have during college before they met the person of their dreams a couple of years later. I was bored for most of the story and nearly didn’t finish it, and there were so many pointless scenes where nothing happened and it just made the book a real slog to get through.

Hockey and romance, what’s not to love!

I got sucked in right away! With compelling characters, witty conversations and a lovely romance, I loved this book.

I usually have a hard time relating to much younger characters–here they’re in college. But they’re so adorable that I didn’t mind. They don’t act like older people, nor do they act like younger kids. They’re just very young adults who discover life and love. It was nice to see them change.

I found a bit of hockey in my hockey romance, and I enjoyed that a lot.

It was a bit sexy. There’s not a lot of intimate scenes, but there’s a tension between Ginny and Heath that builds up and makes for a steamy read anyway. I also loved the flirting, it was cute and funny.

My main problem was with the onslaught of characters from other books that I didn’t care about, right at the end. They weren’t necessary, just a wink for the dedicated readers, and there were enough new characters to not need others.

It’s an interesting start of a new series. Hockey and romance, what’s not to love!

I've listened to the audiobook, and Joe Arden and Vanessa Edwin gave a new life to this story that I enjoyed. Vanessa especially--her trembling voice made me feel everything. Definitely an audiobook I recommend!

Audiobook enhanced this great story!

I read the ebook first but when I saw that this book features Joe Arden and Vanessa Edwin, I had to listen. Well, I have to say that the story itself is awesome but having these narrators totally elevated the story itself. if you've ever listened to these narrators before, you know, they are some of the best of the bunch. Joe Arden has such an effortless way of infusing his emotion into his voice. Vanessa Edwin did awesome as Ginny. Her male voice sounded a little more forced but overall, it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the story.

First, about the story. This is a new adult sports romance following hockey player, Heath (and brother to Nathan from Rebecca Jenshak's prior series, the Smart Jocks series. If you haven't listened to that series, definitely put those books on your TBL! They are amazing, especially the Fadeaway with Teddy Hamilton!)

This book- it made me swoon. Heath was a sweetheart. He was always so protective and sweet to Ginny, the sister of his team captain. They started out more as friends as both aren't sure they want to get into a relationship. But the relationship develops pretty organically and I love their banter and just their sweetness towards each other. There are some steamy parts, of course, but overall, their relationship is most defined by love and respect. The angst came from issues associated with their pasts, especially Heath's, but overall, this was a low angst romance. There were many moments when I burst out laughing and I NEED to read Maverick's book when Rebecca Jenshak writes it. Can't wait for the next one!!

Cute New Adult Sports Romance

This was a cute new adult sports romance. It's a spin off from the Smart Jocks series and the hero, Heath, is the brother of the MMC in The Fake. The narration by Joe Arden and Vanessa Edwin was great and I especially enjoyed Vanessa Edwin's performance. She really made those emotional scenes hit home!

There are lots of fun tropes in this one like teammate's little sister, friends to lovers, and forbidden-ish romance. The reformed player isn't my favorite type of hero, but I appreciated that the book was pretty low angst and that Heath's character arc and growth was an important part of the story. I also liked that there wasn't a rush for the characters to have penetrative sex. Things were plenty sexy without that and when they did decide to take that step, both were 100% ready and on board. I loved the little cameo's from the Smart Jocks characters/couples and the epilogue was a beautiful way to bring those worlds together. I'm looking forward to reading more books in this series, especially Rhett's!

Immature college hockey read

So, I guess I thought there would be more of a semi professional/ professional vibe. Genius is 18 ish and Heath is probably 20 ish. It all takes about one semester. The whole story is rushed. The narrators are ok although Joe (one of my favorites) wasn't the right fit for Heath's character. He just was too old sounding.

Done with this series.

Enjoyed

I always look forward to listening to a story narrated by Joe and Vanessa. This was a nice sweet easy going story. Like how there are a variety of side characters. Looking forward to learning about everyone. This was my first story in her collection.

Secret Puck

Life is short. Be happy and enjoy every moment.

Secret Puck is my first Rebecca Jenshak book and it will not be my last. I enjoyed the relationship growth between Heath and Ginny.

Ginny is starting college on her own and her brother Adam helps her out by introducing her to a bunch of his friends and teammates who welcome her with open arms. Heath is attracted to Ginny but her brother has warned the team to stay away. Only after trying to be friends for a while, their attraction becomes too much to ignore but just as their relationship starts to bloom things take a turn.

I enjoyed that Heath and Ginny started their relationship as friends, moved into a relationship and then eventually helped each other grow and come to realize their meaning of love. I liked a lot of the side characters and can not wait to see who gets their own stories.

Joe Arden did a great job as always bringing life to Heath. Vanessa Edwin did a great job bringing Ginny to life and making her sound like the sweet and innocent girl that she seemed to be.

New Ice Hockey Romance to fall in love with

Loved the new round of Valley U characters and intertwining of the beloved Valley U Basketball Crew. We were introduced to Heath in The Fake, Nathan's little brother. I'm a sucker for college sports romances, hockey especially so I'm super excited for the next book in this series, possibly Adam's Story??? Narration was great only thing that bugged me was Edwin's portrayl of a Minnesota accent, almost cringeworthy, thankfully its minimal. Great listen, don't hesitate on using a credit, worth it!

Such a great audiobook!

I swooned. I laughed. I loved. I couldn’t get enough of Heath and Ginny. They had amazing chemistry in and out of the bedroom. The author has once again created a phenomenal sports romance that will have you captivated from the first few pages right to the end.

Ginny and Heath find love

What a great start to a new series. This is book one of Campus Nights and it is a spin off from Smart Jocks which I absolutely loved.

This book gives us Heath who is Nathan's little brother from the Smart Jocks Series. We watched Heath as he grew up and came to Valley U to be a hockey star. Now the team captain's little sister has come to Valley and he no longer wants to just hook up with random girls, he wants to spend time with Ginny even if it's just to talk.

Ginny is tired of being Adam's little sister and known as baby Payne, she wants to spread her wings but she just got out of a relationship and she isn't looking for romance, that is until she gets to know Heath and finds there is so much more to this man than she first thought.

I loved the characters and the story and just fell right back into Valley U life. This is a book about college students but it is so much more. There is depth and emotion and real life going on with these characters. I love how this author pulls me in and wraps me up with all the characters. It was fun and sweet and I just loved it and highly recommend it.

The book is great on it's own then you add Joe Arden and Vanessa Edwin to narrate it and it's a double win. Loved their voices and they were Heath and Ginny for me.

5 stars for sure.
