Book Blurb:

He’s known as Father Anton to his teammates—the brooding, sexy captain of the NHL’s Chicago Blaze has a reputation for…not having a reputation. Just like his diet and sleep routines, celibacy is part of Anton Petrov’s on-ice mojo. Or so they say. Anton stays mum on the subject. If the world thinks he chooses to abstain from sex, so be it. Better that than the truth getting out: there is a woman he burns for, but he can never have her. She’s his teammate’s wife, after all.

Mia Marceau is finally on her own. Now that she and her husband are living apart, she’s finding the peace she was desperate for. She spends her days in classes and late nights bartending, making her own way in the world at last. After what she’s been through, as long as her husband leaves her alone, she doesn’t plan to rock the boat. He still has the power to hurt those dearest to her, and she can’t demand a divorce with such a high cost.

A chance encounter with Mia has Anton hoping for a shot he never thought he’d get. And while she’s drawn to the intense, serious hockey center, Mia’s leery about playing with fire. That’s all Anton has ever known for Mia, though—a living, burning desire that won’t be denied—no matter the cost.

4.5 stars

When I read the blurb for Anton by Brenda Rothert, I was very intrigued, and I am glad I read it! It was a forbidden love story that was emotional and sweet with great characters! I had never read this author before and though this is a part of a series, I did not feel lost, though I am now excited to go back and read more of this series!

I fell for Anton right from the start. He was sweet, caring, strong and determined. He was in love with a woman he could not have. His morals were strong, but when he found he could help her, he did everything he could. Even if it meant only friendship, because he was that kind of man. Mia broke my heart. She was sweet, caring and so vulnerable. She was dealing with some very difficult circumstances in her life. When she finally got away, she was just trying to keep her head down and move forward any way she could.

Anton by Brenda Rothert was so much more than a sports romance. It was touching, sad at times and full of hope and second chances. I devoured the book. It was not an easy journey for Anton and Mia, but it was one that was captivating and have you cheering for the main characters. I loved it and cannot wait to read more both from this series and this author.
