Great story. Marc and Lovey meet when Lovey comes storming into Marc and her brother's life in Chicago. Both Army, Lovey's brother, and Marc play for the Chicago team and Lovey decided she wanted to move to Chicago so, without any warning, she moves in with them. To say Lovey was impulsive is an understatement. She is 24 years old child and does not have a lick of maturity. She wants to start her own businesses but doesn't want to tell her brother or parents because she thinks they will give her a hard time. Lovey also moves to Chicago without a set plan on where she is going to live and what clients she wants to go after. Lovey is definitely out-going and likes to be the centre of attention. Despite warnings from Army, Marc gets caught in Lovey's spell and finds himself having a secret relationship with her.
I just couldn't like the main character "Lovey". She came across as a teenager in her actions and a pretty childish one at that. It was almost like merging two books in one, one book dealing with the angst teenager and another book dealing with a young adult, team captain for a Hockey Team and its the latter book that gets the stars - at least Marc had character and decent storyline. I've enjoyed other books by this author, however this book in no way does justice to her other books.
A smokin' hot hockey player, fierce loyalty and speaks french... perfect recipe for a perfect book boyfriend.
Marc Dupuis; where have you been all my life?
I absolutely adored Major Misconduct, as I usually do with any book written by Kelly. Lovey was a wonderful heroine that was loveable and relatable. I cheered so hard for her tenacity and her belief in herself. Thank you, Kelly, for another outstanding hockey romance. I cannot wait for the next one :) x
Ice hockey … best friend’s sister romance … this has the premise of being a keeper. The story was enjoyable but there’s just something that didn’t seem to gel right for me. The characters separately – they were likable. The characters together – entertaining and sexy but only on the surface. I wished the author had delved a bit more into their personalities and gave me more insight into their choices. I think it was the way the story was told. I wanted to see how the characters felt around each other, not be told.
Lovey is a secretive woman. She’s landed on her brother Duncan’s doorstep without a job and keeps her cards very close to her chest. Duncan is rightfully concerned about his sister’s seemingly lack of direction and even more at unease when his roommate and team captain Marc interest in his sister.
The story is enjoyable, don’t get me wrong. I just don’t like being told that ‘we drank drinks’. There are plenty of opportunities to engage the reader that are missed unfortunately. In saying that, I’m definitely keen for the next in the series.
I was given a copy of this book for my honest opinion.
