    I am a huge hockey fan Those sexy men, with their big sticks, get to me every single time So it shouldn t be a suprise, that I am also a huge fan of Avon Gale s Scoring Chances series When I saw the blub for this one, I knew I had to read it I am so glad I did, because I absolutely loved this one This book has so many of the things I love.We get two awesome men getting down and dirty, sports hockey , age difference, student teacher, dirty talk and some very nicely done kink What could a girl wi [...]

    2.5 Stars I don t know people The rates are so high Was I expecting too much I feel so disappointed.It wasn t bad but it was nothing special either Therefore I will go for 2 stars which is an OK read here on GR.Tristan was lovely and I sympathized with his character LOADS I think the authors did great revealing his emotions and fears when facing his conflicted situation of coming out I actually felt anxious for him every single time he had to come up front and talk about this with his parents, c [...]

    Warning Gushy review ahead, because this book rocked my socks off.When I read that Avon Gale and Piper Vaughn were starting a new hockey series, I was ecstatic And I don t even think I could follow a game of hockey without someone talking me through it But I do love me some sports romance, even if I don t really like sports Something about seeing alpha males laid low by love just gets me going Who could blame me, right And add in a super toppy academic and I m in lurve Sebastian Cruz is a profes [...]

    3.5 stars I liked this, at times very much, but when I reflected back on the story about a week after I read it, nothing stood out to me, which isn t a great thing I was one of the few who didn t love Avon Gale s collaboration with Piper Vaughn, and though I ADORE Avon Gale s solo works, I think I ll steer clear of her work with Piper in the future It just doesn t give me that squee feeling I was drawn to this book because it has SO many themes that I enjoy I love kink, age gaps, and hockey play [...]

    4.5 stars Well, it s official From now on, every Puerto Rican teacher is going to be Juan Forgia in my mind It s all Santino Hassell s fault.Avon Gale and Piper Vaughn are my new favorite author duo Their writing might mesh together incredibly well, but the characters voices are very powerful and distinct I m perfectly sure that Off the Ice will tick a lot of people s boxes Opposites attract Age gap Teacher student trope because of my line of work this can feel a little icky, but fear not Here, [...]

    Oh, boy did Off the Ice by Avon Gale and Piper Vaughn cater to all my loves Age gap opposites attract teacher student kink romance humorIt s the story of an out and proud but unbending college professor, Sebastian Cruz, and a closeted professional Ice Hockey player, Tristan Holt, who s recently gone back to school At first glance, Sebastian comes across as uptight and by the rules, but even he can t resist the blonde hot guy in the gray sweatpants shot out to gethasselled megsmob Y all and sweat [...]

    Solid 4 Star read I quite like this duo I wasn t a super big fan of the humiliation kink going on, but it was on the light side Super hot otherwise No crazy drama.Likable characters Great start to the series, I am definitely looking forward to the next bookC kindly provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    4.5 StarsPractically perfect in every way.During his summer off, professional NHL player Tristan Holt has decided to go back to school part time in order to finish his business degree.He ends up in a Sociology course being taught by Sebastian Cruz, one of the professors still trying to get tenure with the university.The two have a rocky start, but once the class ends, the heat begins and the two begin a relationship Unfortunately, Tristan isn t out to anyone and Sebastian is out and proud.There [...]

    I was a bit hesitant going into this because while I love Avon Gale s solo books I was not a fan of this writing duo s previous book Permanent Ink I did like this one better but not by much Tristan is a NHL hockey player who wants to finish off his college degree And on a side note, real life professional hockey player Colton Parayko is the inspiration for Tristan You should take a minute to google him because sweet baby jesus he s something fine to look at Tristan takes a Sociology class which [...]

    Expected The book was alright Nothing to write home about, nor something I d want to read again It was predictable, but still cute It centers around defenseman for the Atlanta Venom, Tristan Tris Holtzy Holt 23 and sociology professor, Sebastian Seb Cruz 34 who just can t help the attraction between them However, one is out and proud while the other is still in the closet Overall, it was still a nice read, but I wished it had been better More action or something Damn, he said, his voice muffled [...]

    It s a pleasure to read a minimally angsty story with MCs who mainly have their lives together, have support networks, jobs, futures, etc There s no looming catastrophe For me, this was a safe, happy, read.

    Christelle
    What I loved Tristan he s kind, he s strong and dedicated, he s combative but fair, he s honest, he s easy going, he s funny The banter it always works for me Opposites attract Age gap Hockey player The development of the relationship between Tristan and Sebastian it takes place over a few month, it s believable, no drama, but issues that are to be addressed and are to my liking Oh, and quite steamy, of course I can t really explain something was missing for me to make it a whoah read, so it s [...]

    Dia
    3,5 stars I m again in the minority here, as almost all my GR friends loved it I m not a big fan of hockey er even sports stories, but I loved Him and Illegal Contact I also loved Permanent Ink by this writing duo, so I wanted to give this book a try For the most part I enjoyed this story It contains a lot of the things I usually love in books age gap, mild BDSM, opposite attract, teacher student trope, BUT somehow this couple wasn t credible Tristan is a 23 y.o hockey player in the NHL Sebastia [...]

    Ami
    I am going to say that it s TWO for TWO for me, when it comes to Avon Gale Piper Vaughn s writing partnership, after Permanent Ink Because I loved this one as well Off the Ice is the first book of the new trilogy, Hat Trick, featuring Tristan Holt, a defenseman for Atlanta Venom, and Sebastian Cruz, sociology professor at Georgia State It has a number of tropes that may attract readers of this genre Let s see student teacher, age gap, d s kink and well, hockey players The two men meet when Trist [...]

    Dani
    Age gap, student professor dynamics, complex characters and funny dialogues What else would I want Sebastian Cruz is the hot and scowly professor that had my heart at full speed Tristan Holt is a professional hockey player that decided to go back to school to have a backup plan in case things go south with hockey From the first pages, I was hooked I don t know if it was because this was partly Avon s work or what, but I loved every second of it The dialogues were witty and the plot was fast pace [...]

    Ky
    Off the Ice is so much than a sports romance It s a coming out story It s a story about making choices About friendships About family It s basically the story of a relationship.So, we have a teacher, we have a pro athlete and we have a summer class Although they met in said class, that was taught by Sebastian and that Tristan was attending, this is not a student teacher romance They were attracted to each other from the beginning but nothing happened between them while the class was in effect T [...]

    Eugenia
    Avon Gale I love her This book, however, I did not love Maybe I had high expectations from her incredible Scoring Chances series I expected humor, hockey, hot sex, and characters I liked.Piper Vaughn I know little as a writer, having only read one of her books before this collaboration I didn t much care for that one.Here I got a little hockey, some hot sex, two parts that made me laugh I counted , and only one MC I cared about Sorry, Sebastian, I just didn t much like you You were pompous and f [...]

    Annie ~ From Top to Bottom Reviews
    I was a first reader for this To say that I loved this would be the understatement of the year And that s not only because inspiration for one of the characters was Colton Parayko one of my favourite hockey players though that might play into it But also because Sebastian Cruz is one amazingly grumpy, hot professor and the chemistry between both of them is palpable and just off the charts Add hockey to the mix and I m in book heaven The Avon Gale Piper Vaughn writing team just works They effortl [...]

    Natalie
    I ve actually felt some overkill lately with hockey stories, but I was confident of quality writing from this author collaboration and I was right They freshened up the closeted pro athlete trope and gave it a level of realism that s not always present Tristan is a smarter kind of athlete, working to finish his degree despite the sudden wealth and notoriety of playing in the NFL Sebastian is a sociology professor, looking for tenure and he makes note of the big blond jock in his class, in the to [...]

    4.5 stars You could think another sportsman in the closet and we know how it will end.No was wrapped in a different paper Kind, lovely and spanky dominating.Sebastian a professor at the uni where Tristan follows a study besides his prof ice hockey career.Grumpy professor and the ideal student Sebastian in his thirties and Tristan a lot younger.They started in a bad way with wrong assumptions Still the attraction coming from both sides After the sky cleared and they are communicating much better [...]

    Catherine
    Between the trope y goodness of Keira Andrews Kidnapped by the Pirate and now Avon Gale and Piper Vaughn s Off the Ice, I have been absolutely spoiled by the m m romance genre this week Seriously, I am riding quite the book high right now This book was full of sexy times No, I don t mean the humiliation kink or the student teacher dynamic or the spanking or the alluded to public sex over the hood of a vintage GTO although all of those things got my motor running in a big way I m talking about th [...]

    River
    While I m writing this review, I still don t know the rating I m going to give to this story and explaining why it s going to be tricky because I don t wanna give anything away in the end I m going with 3.5 stars This is sebastian and Tristan s story, I would call this like may september romance because I didn t felt the age gap was that big Tristan is a hockey player that decides to go back to college to get a a degree because he s aware that you never know what might happen in the future, he [...]

    Hollis
    I m not here to be your friend or mentor This isn t Dead Poets Society This might have been an even better line if Tristan had been the captain of the fictional Venom team but I still loved the reference.Professor Cruz absolutely came alive as he spoke True, he suffered from a bad case of Resting Asshole Face, and Tristan wouldn t go so far as to call him handsome, not exactly Still, there was something compelling about him.I ll admit to doing a happy little jig when I got an early copy of OFF T [...]

    I had the privilege of reading Off The Ice before it was released, and I LOVED IT So much with the awesome, m kay Tris and Sebastian were all with the delicious, and the sweetness and the lust sighs Just one of those reads where you reach the end and you close your tablet with a dreamy smile on your face, and a slight thirst Okay, not so slight, but you get me Right Right

    Sierra Guru
    I m going to start by saying there may be spoilers ahead Although in many ways the writing spoiled it for me so details shouldn t spoil it for you I ll avoid details as much as possible while still making my points I don t typically rate a book with 1 star and don t consider myself to be captious I also won t write a review unless I finish the book and, under different circumstances, I would have stopped reading this one somewhere after chapter 12.First, let me discuss why I bought it Less than [...]

    Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
    4.5 starsI was immediately hooked when I started reading Off the Ice I liked the initial dynamic between the student and the professor, Tristian and Sebastian It certainly isn t a new concept in romance novels but the authors kept their story fresh and new throughout the book.Despite his profession and work and life experience, Sebastian judged Tristan on his looks and overall demeanor Sensation had to eat crow to get on Tristan s good graces again but these men couldn t stay away from each othe [...]
