Product Description

Confession #1: I used to be a puck bunny, but after a hockey player broke my heart, I gave up all things hockey. Now I'm just focused on finding a way to pass my math class so I can graduate college.

Confession #2: Ryder "Ox" Maddox's deep, sexy voice sends fuzzy tingles through my entire body, and I'm powerless to stop it. Which is a big problem since the hot, surprisingly funny hockey player is my new math tutor.

Confession #3: I can't stop thinking about how ripped Ryder is from all his hockey training, and how fun it'd be to cross lines with him.

Confession #4: I kissed a hockey player and I liked it.

Confession #5: If I'm not careful, I might relapse and fall for Ryder, and then I'll be totally pucked.

Each book in the Taking Shots series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

The story, told in dual POV, follows former puck bunny Lindsay, who has curbed her puck bunny ways for the last year and has no intention of relapsing. Everything hockey is off limits. Sadly Ryder "Ox" Maddox, defensemen for the college hockey team did not get the memo, and he is relentless in his pursuit of Lindsay. It took me a while to warm up to Lindsay, but by the end of the book I was fully invested in her happy ever after. Ryder I was fully invested in from the beginning, no breaking me in gently with him, he was pretty much my ultimate book boyfriend. As well as been super hot he is so so 'nice' on the inside too, truly swoon worthy. Both Lindsay and Ryder have parental issues that leak into their would be relationship and even though we have quite a bit of family drama the story is a fun, lighthearted read. I lovely hockey romances and this did not disappoint. I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a really good book. It was very different from what I expected from the blurb. I'm now a Cindi Madsen fan and will be looking for more of her books. This story was alot of fun, the characters were believable and the writing style was engaging, it's in dual POV which I enjoy.

This is the story of former Puck Bunny, Lindsey. She is editor of the local newspaper, heading for graduation and if never going near a hockey player ever. That's until she seeks maths tutoring and her saviour is Ryder, a hockey player she has been ignoring.

Can he convince her to give one last hockey player a chance?

Lindsay Rivera has decided she'll never fall for another hockey player again, but there's something about Ryder 'Ox' Maddox that dares her to take a chance. Especially since he doesn't give up on pursuing her easily when she's told him repeatedly he'll never stand a chance of winning her over. However, when Lindsay realizes she needs help to pass her math class otherwise she won't be able to graduate, it seems the only person available to tutor her is Ryder. Will she give him a chance or is allowing him to tutor her as far as things will go?

Ms. Madsen's books are fantastic, and this series I've loved from the very first book. It's a series about hockey players falling in love and overcoming tough obstacles to win their heroine's hearts, and certainly, Ryder faces a tough challenge with Lindsay. Since the last relationship she was in with a hockey player didn't work out, and she has a lot of dislike for guys that play the sport because of it. Can Ryder overcome her hang-ups to prove to Lindsay that he's different than the last guy she was with?

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, and the obstacles these two face on their journey to happy ever after. Clearly, Ryder's parents have a huge problem with Lindsay, which had me reading quickly wanting to know what their quandary was with her? What is their deal that they're willing to have their son mad at them for interfering in his love life? However, the dialogue wasn't all intense. There were some really good light-hearted moments such as Lindsay's confessions and the teasing dialogue between Ryder and Lindsay. The hero is determined to win the heroine over and isn't afraid to get sneaky about his intentions by involving the secondary characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will put a smile on your face. 9 May 2017
By Becky Thomas - Published on Amazon.com

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

“Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny” picks up the story of Lindsey and Ryder who were introduced in “Anatomy of a Player”. Lindsey has come to hate hockey players, or at least she thinks she does because she’s been burned in the past. Ryder is a rather persistent hockey player that really doesn’t know Lindsey’s past but doesn’t give up even though she’s trying to push him away. With a dynamic like that you are going to have a story with quite a bit of angst from both sides and to complicate matters the hockey team is in the time consuming and often stressful playoff season.

“Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny” like the previous books in the series was sweet and light hearted if a bit formulaic and that is why I'm knocking off a star. The editing is pretty good and you won’t find any jarring grammatical errors! There is some sex but the pages are not consumed by it and it is not overly graphic for those of you not into that sort of thing. This is a pretty fast read and you’ll want to try to read in one go, a fun weekend or beach read that has a feel good HEA and will put a smile on your face.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want my own Ryder 9 May 2017
By Lexy H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
**4.5 stars**

This was my first read in this series and Cindi Madsen, but it also won't be my last. This book can be read as a standalone, but I promise you'll want to go back and read the read of the series. I know I one clicked them all shortly after I finished this book. You get hints that the other books in this series of standalones, which just gives you more reason to want to go back and read their stories as well.

Confessions of Former Puck Bunny was a hockey romance filled with laughter and characters who were so easy to love! Lindsay is former puck bunny who has recently changed her ways. Because of this change she wants nothing to do with hockey or its players. She has found other things to occupy her time, such as being the editor of the school paper, which allows her to draw little attention to herself. She is able to avoid all things hockey, giving others on the staff the chance to write the stories, and focus on editing the paper. The only problem with this is, her English skills are amazing, but her math skills? Not so much.

Enter Ryder. The hot hockey player who also loves math. Ryder has had a thing for Lindsay and doesn't want to stop until he can pursue her. Ryder has no idea about Lindsay's former puck bunny ways and when he finds out, he doesn't care. He just wants Lindsay and he won't stop until he gets her.

Lindsay and Ryder have to figure out how to get out of their comfort zones, trust each other and learn how to be in a real relationship. Their journey was fun to read and had you laughing out loud. I loved reading their story and I can't wait for more from Cindi Madsen in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book by Cindi! 9 May 2017
By Gaby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I seriously can't believe this is the last book in the series, when did this happen? I have mixed feelings about this, on one hand I'm so happy to have gotten this book because I have enjoyed Cindi's hockey series so much!, but on the other hand it's sad to say goodbye to these couples.

In this fourth installment, which can totally be read as a standalone, out main characters are Ryder and Lindsay. I must say I was surprised that Lindsay was going to be the heroine; she has a past as a puck bunny and she's done the best she cans to get rid of that image and change her ways. When we first met her I kida saw her as just this woman scorned so I really couldn't imagine what reading from her point of view was going to be like. I don't particularly like the idea of a girl being from guy to guy or flirting with a lot of them, I can't really connect with that so I had worried I might not empathize with Lindsay or have trouble connecting with her; but Cindi did a great job in writing her character, you get to know about her past, her insecurities and you just see how her characters evolves.

As for Ryder, well he may be a couple of years younger that Lindsay, but man he is totally swoon-worthy! Lindsay definitely didn't have a chance. Yes, he is super hot but more than that you really fall for his personality, for his actions. He's caring, protective, determined and also a math nerd but trust me that doesn't diminishes his attractive at all. Ever since he saw Lindsay, he's wanted to get to know her better, break through her walls and hopefully start something with her; but with him being a hockey player, Lindsay is very reticent so he'll have to fight hard for what he wants, and the more he persist the harder it gets for Lindsay to keep denying that attraction, specially since they start spending more time together. Their path isn't easy, so they'll have to face some challenges if they decide what they have is worth fighting for.

Confessions of a Former Puck Bunny was a great read, Cindi's writing and the pace of the story is very fluid and that along with great characters seals the deal for me. Btw I also loved that we can see the couples from the previous stories in this book! Congrats, Cindi!!!

10 CONFESSION STARS!!!! Oh my goodness, I could not put this book down, I was attached from the first page until the last word. Wow, Ryder is the perfect book boyfriend hot, sexy, hockey players, sweet and fun. Lindsay was a puck bunny that swore off hockey players, but when she need a math tutor and Ryder walks in, well all bets are off. I loved Ryder and Lindsay they were a fun couple with all their bantering and Ryder trying so hard to win Lindsay over. I love Cindi Madsen storytelling what an amazing job she has done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ryder is a total sweetheart! 22 May 2017
By Nikki ~ Saint and Sinners Books~ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
So I did not read the first books in the series, but it wasn’t hard for me to keep up at all. This book was pretty good and kept me interested and actually makes me want to go back and read the other three books in the series.

Lindsay made a lot of mistakes during her first few years of college. She was a puck bunny, but after getting her heart broken she realizes her goals are more important than hockey players. Now Lindsey is focused on school and graduating there is only one problem well two actually. The first problem is math. Lindsey is struggling to keep her grades up. The second reason is… Ryder “Ox” Maddox and boy is he a weakness she is having a problem staying away from.

Ryder has a huge crush on Lindsey so when she needs help studying he sees a way in. Now Ryder has to convince Lindsey that they can be more than study partners. Lindsey is determined to keep Ryder at arms length, but he isn’t giving up so easily. But what happens when Lindsey’s past collides with Ryder’s future?

I adored Ryder … God he is such a total sweetheart!! I swooned quite a few times. Lindsey is a very likable character as well and I felt so bad for her. There were a few parts that were kind of slow, but overall I enjoyed this book.
