[Review + Release Day] OFFSIDE WITH #55 (Hockey Hotties, #6) by Piper Rayne

Release Date: May 31, 2022


The last thing any professional hockey player wants is to be the old man in the game. The guy who doesn’t know when it’s time to retire. Still, I can’t bear the thought of leaving the game.

This past year I’ve reflected on all my regrets, and I told myself that once I retire it’ll be the time to find the right woman. But this is where it gets tricky.

I think I’ve found her—although she’ll deny our connection to anyone who asks. We’ve been sleeping together casually and since I’m still playing hockey, I’ve let her get what she wants—me—whenever she wants.

After being told my career as a player is over, the owner of Florida Fury grants me a shot to stay in the game. A coaching position I didn’t know I wanted until it was offered. The catch? He’s also passing the family business down to his daughter.

Who’s his daughter?

The woman who’s been in and out of my bed for the past year. Which means the woman I intend to make mine is now my new boss.

I’m a bit sad to see Piper and Rayne’s Hockey Hotties series wrapping up with OFFSIDE WITH #55. It’s been lovely getting to know all of the players and their significant others, and I’ve absolutely loved all of the team dynamics and friendships that have grown throughout the series! As a whole, the series was wonderful and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it!

Kane and Jana have been teased for a while now, and we’ve seen some snippets of them in the previous books, so I was looking forward to seeing their story in OFFSIDE WITH #55. I did love them, but while I found the previous book a bit too dramatic for me, I did find that this one felt a bit too flat because we’d seen so much of Kane and Jana’s drama in the previous books. I did love their chemistry and their banter was fantastic, but I was left wanting more after finishing this one. I still enjoyed it, but wish we’d gotten some of their earlier moments saved for their actual story.

Overall, I thought that OFFSIDE WITH #55 was a great addition to the series and a wonderful way to tie everything together. It was fantastic to get to know both Kane and Jana deeper and to see them open up to love. It was sweet, steamy, and fits right in with the other books in the series! I definitely have to say that I’d love to get more of the Florida Fury because I’m not ready for their stories to be finished, but I did think that it left in a lovely place. I will recommend to anyone finishing this book to get yourself Piper and Rayne’s bonus scene for it though because that was what I really needed to feel content with the series coming to an end. I’d recommend OFFSIDE WITH #55 to readers who love sweet, yet steamy romances that feature lovely friend groups. Now, I’m just going to sit here and hope we get a Tweetie and Tedi novella or book someday. ;)
