To the world Alex Larue is the charismatic hockey star who scores more off the ice then on the ice. Brie Bennett, brought up in privilege and devoted to helping the underprivileged with the charity she runs has no time for playboys. When Alex’s misconduct in a Starbucks with Brie puts him in the no date zone with only his coffee to warm him their next chance encounter puts them both on the defensive with their preconceived notions of who they are dealing with. As circumstances bring them together again and again they find that maybe their initial impressions were way off and the love they both long for might just be possible.
Game On, book six in the Hometown Players series, was so much more than a romance. It was about facing fears, helping others, being an inspiration and fighting for success when the odds are stacked against you. The story of Alex and Brie takes off from the start with Victoria Denault’s strong storytelling and characters hard not to get attached too. This author has a knack for exposing her portrayals, giving her readers a view of their inner selves versus the side they share with the world, making for telling and sensitive works. The dynamic between the leads of this book while rocky at first and being thrown some challenging and gut-wrenching disclosures, little by little built on found common footing. Ironically Alex’s trying to escape his past brought it right to him for a reckoning that freed him to ultimately live his life to the fullest. Brie in many ways was Alex if he had been given the opportunities that she had received. As these two pieced together their connections the love that developed carried this story to a happy teary finish that really was a new beginning for these two wonderful characters. Victoria Denault will leave her audience cheering as she delivers another successful Home Town Players story in Game On!
