"This is book three in The Boys of Winter Series and I have read all of them and I have to say this one is my favorite. The writing and the sports. I love hockey. Best sport ever. That is one the things I love best about S.R. Grey, she includes the game." ~ Alpha Book Club 

"I love this series, but omg Benny stole a piece of my heart. What's not to love about a hot hockey player who loves doughnuts, is hilarious and is so much in love he is prepared to forgive almost anything." ~ Jackie, MI Bookshelf Blog 
"I had everyone staring, I was laughing so hard." ~ Books and Boys Book Blog 

Fun-loving professional hockey player Benjamin “Benny” Perry is all about scoring, both on and off the ice. With his good looks and easygoing personality, women flock to him, which is great. It keeps things the way this Las Vegas Wolves forward likes—uncomplicated.
Too bad that’s all about to change.
When Benny decides to get back at his coach by pursuing his daughter, Eliza, who’s just returned to town under mysterious circumstances, complications abound. What begins as a simple conquest becomes anything but when Benny starts to really fall for Eliza.
But something is up.
Though Eliza seems to be as into him as he is to her, Benny senses she’s hiding something.
Or maybe she’s hiding someone. 
Benny would never guess Eliza is hiding a baby—her baby. But it doesn’t end there. The father of her child just happens to be a hockey player too. And he’s Benny’s biggest nemesis.
Now he’s joining the team. Talk about complicated!
Complications on Ice is the 3rd standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

Dylan Culderway, a premier defenseman on our team, kicked things off by making a joke about how I better keep my horny self far away from Coach’s daughter.
“I heard she’s back in town,” Dylan said. 
“Oh, yeah,” I mumbled disinterestedly, “where was she before?” 
I didn’t keep fucking tabs on these kinds of things. 
“D.C., apparently,” Dylan replied. “At college, I guess.” 
“Oh, really?” I perked up. So she was young, hmm… “You say she’s back in Vegas?” I said. 
“Yep.” 
I then asked a very pertinent question, “Is she hot?”  
Dylan laughed. “Dude, Coach already has it out for you. I’m telling you, he’d annihilate your ass if you ever tapped his precious daughter.”
Ignoring the warning, I replied, “What’s her name?”  
“Eliza.” 
“Eliza, eh?” 
I liked the way it rolled off my tongue. Better yet, this could be my chance to exact revenge on Coach T for treating me like a pariah.
“What does this Eliza look like?” I asked Dylan. I didn’t want to hit on the wrong girl. 
“Not sure,” he replied. “I’ve never met her. Since her dad doesn’t want her around any hockey players, I don’t think she’s ever been here at the arena.” 
But then Jaxon Holland, a second-line center, jumped in and said, “I’ve met her.”
“And…?” I queried. 
He let out a low whistle. “She’s a hot piece of ass, just your type, Perry. A tiny, little thing…” He outlined an hourglass shape with his hands, and I was salivating by the time he got to “…curvy as fuck, too.”
“That’s it. I have to meet this Eliza,” I declared. 
“Go for it.” Holland laughed. 
He could be a real dog like me, as demonstrated when he went on to say, “There’s nothing better than drilling a chick with hips like that. You can really grab on and go to town.”
When he mimicked a fucking motion, we all cracked up. 
Except for Brent Oliver, captain of our team, who was frowning as he said, “You better stay away from Eliza, Benny. Dylan’s right. Coach T is crazy protective of her. He despises the idea of his daughter dating a hockey player.” 
“Huh, I wonder why that is?” I mused. 
Brent shrugged. “I don’t know, but weren’t you here the day he told us she was off-limits?”
I thought about it and couldn’t recall. “I must’ve been running late that day,” I concluded.
“Probably busy buying a chocolate donut,” someone yelled. 
I swung my head around to see who the smartass was. Probably one of the younger guys, as the rookies always had commentary.  
“Who said that?” I wanted to know. No one fessed up, and I mumbled, “Pussies.” 
“Anyway,” Brent resumed, “Coach T made a big point of telling us to stay the fuck away from her. He promised there’d be consequences if any of the players asked her out.”
“Ha, ask her out? Who said I wanted to date her?” I volleyed back, mimicking, slow and easy, the same fucking motion Jaxon had a few minutes ago. 
Everyone lost it then, including Brent. Though I did hear him mutter under his breath, “It’s your funeral, man.”
It’ll be worth it, I thought. 
I liked that Eliza was off-limits. What a stellar way to get back at Coach for riding me so hard and unnecessarily lately. 







Review:
Eliza finds herself in a tough position. Returning home isn't exactly where she wanted to be going in life but she needs the help. She is trying to figure out life. She is trying to figure the whole adult thing, but growing up sometimes is hard to do.

Benny is moving up the ranks on his team. He is trying to earn the respect of the coach. He decides if Coach wont like him, maybe his daughter will.

These two have to work out a lot of kinks but they do see eye to eye at one point. Eliza leads Benny on and with his past he cant take a player. After they figure out where they stand, they are a couple to be reckoned with. He wants nothing but to take care of Eliza and her child and Eliza wants nothing but Benny.

Release with Review:: Play on the Field (Game Time Series, #3) by S.M. Donaldson

19 September
Title: Play on the Field
Series: Game Time Series #3
Author: SM Donaldson
Genre:  YA Sports Romance
Release Date: September 19, 2017 
Welcome to the time where memories are made and hearts get broken.

Brock Atwood is stuck. At school, he’s in his brother’s shadow; at home, he is second to the new baby. Moving from JV as a starter, he finds himself either being second string or learning a new position on Varsity.
Always second isn’t a feeling he’s used to.
No one thinks twice when Tatum Bland’s name pops up on the roster as the new place kicker. 
Everyone is shocked when Tatum shows up at the first practice and she’s a girl.
He’s lost in his own world when she comes in and turns it upside down. She’s been burned badly and simply wants to do what she has to in order to get by. She has enough distractions at home without adding to her life.
What happens when the play on the field becomes a play for her heart?



Review:
We are pulled into the young lives again. I have loved this series. SM doesn't disappoint with giving us real teens. Brock has been with us through the last few books, but as a secondary character, Colin's little brother. He is also a football player trying to make his way up the rankings to get noticed. The hard thing about that is his brother is in the bright lights and he doesn't know if there is enough room for him too. I loved the raw and pure emotion shared by Brock. He says what he means and does what he says he is going to.
Tatum moves, bullies swarmed her at her last school, her family starts new. She has a good head on her shoulders, her parents are a great support system. She knows what she needs to do to make life better. She needs to focus on school and football. I loved that she played. I loved that she has a great relationship with her parents.

Her connection with Brock is electric from the start. They begin as teammates and begin spending time together. Brock is immediately protective of her and doesn't want the guys getting a peek of anything. He pushes and pushes until he becomes a part of her daily life. I loved that the story kept the fact that these are teenagers trying to figure out life. They don't know what will be of them in years to come but they know right now they like each other possibly love.

The only thing that is not liked about this is because they are teenagers, the epilogues aren't happily ever afters with babies and families, they are a few weeks down the road. I would so love to see if Brock and Tatum make it through college and if children come later down the road.

S.M. Donaldson is a born and raised Southern girl. She grew up in a small rural town on Florida’s Gulf Coast, the kind of place where everyone knows your business before you do, especially when your Daddy is a cop and your Mom works for the school system. She married one of her best friends at the age of 20 and has two sons. She is a proud military wife, has always had a soft spot for a good story, and is known to have a potty mouth. At the age of 31, she decided there was no time like the present to attempt her first book. Sam’s Choice was born and she hasn’t stopped since. If you are looking for a good, steamy, Southern set romance with true Southern dialect, she’s your girl.
