Trey always thought he would be in the big leagues for the NHL. What he didn’t expect is reality slapping him hard in the face and having him on a losing farm team, broken dreams and nothing else. When he is forced to coach kids at a local rink, Trey knows his crappy life is now on the way to hell….until he meets Officer Wade. Then Trey finds out that love will find a way no matter what you can do to stop it.

Wade is proud of his little town and sure the local farm team is last in the league but that new goalie is sure to bring big things. He never expects the sparks to fly between them or the hunch that Trey is hiding something. Can Wade get Trey to believe in their burgeoning relationship to share what secrets he holds?

I loved the first book, OFFSIDE PASS, and found the second book, BETWEEN THE PIPES to be just as enjoyable. I have to stress that even though this is a standalone story in the series, it is best to read them in order to get the full back story of the brothers and what brought them to the minor leagues. Ms. Hecht is a talented author who knows how to deliver a delightfully sinfully sexy story that will steam your nights up and keep you on the edge of your seat till the very end. The writing was tight, the story flowed smoothly and the characters were well rounded.

Trey thought he would reap the bounty of being on a major NHL team, the endorsements and the fame. What he gets instead is a losing farm team and a broken down life. Forced to coach a kid’s hockey team, Trey feels like his life just went to hell in a hand basket. Meeting Wade was something Trey never anticipated and finding the man sexy as hell leaves Trey reeling. These two are pure combustion. The sparks fly between Trey and Wade and I loved how they connected together. Ms. Hecht delivers a set of characters that fairly brim with testosterone and sex appeal. I love how this author creates complex characters that leave the reader aching for more. The secondary characters kept the story moving smoothly and I am eager to see which brother is next to fall in love.

BETWEEN THE PIPES is a sexy tale about two people finding they need to trust their hearts in order to let go of a past that may mar their chance for a future. If you are looking to read a series about hot hockey players, this is the one to grab. I am eager to see who falls next in the Blue Line Hockey Series. Ms. Hecht is a wonderfully talented author who can keep her readers spellbound till the very end.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
