That’s all it took to send my brother’s and my life into a tailspin with no end in sight. I was going to be something. I was going to be the best. I had the Olympics in my sights. And it all went to shit in one flash. Brayden wasn’t ready to raise a younger sister when I was thrown into his lap. He had his life and everything going for him. Thankfully, he was still drafted to his dream hockey team. The same one dad played for when we were growing up.
It took time, but I started to get better, started to open up, started skating and even dating again. I even thought I found the perfect guy for me.
Isn’t it funny how guys hit on you when they know you’re not available, but when you’re single they won’t give you the freaking time of day? I guess the game is more fun that way. And for the captain of my brother’s team, that’s exactly what I was. A hat trick is three goals in hockey. Some say three is a crowd and they might be right.
I was Gavin Hayes’ unobtainable goal.

I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time “day job” and by night I am an author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.
Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I’d like or just to shoot the, well you know.

When I first read the blurb for Hat Trick, I was so anxious to read it. I am a sucker for the forbidden love in a brother's friend or teammate story. The fact that it's an insta-love kind of sucked me in more. Sometimes that is just what we need as readers, a little instant attraction to make us feel good.
Overall the story was enjoyable and I can't say I'm disappointed that I read it. On the other hand though, the story fell a little flat for me. I didn't really feel a connection to the characters. I also felt like it was a bit rushed, yes it's insta-love so I should expect fast, but it was more than that. I would still recommend this to anyone that is looking for a fast-paced story that they can enjoy.
