Head Coach by Lia Riley - Book Review and Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads Bookdepository

Review by Suze

Neve is a sports journalist and she keeps butting head with Tor, the grouchy Denver Hellions hockey coach. For Tor work is everything and he’s had his heart broken because the woman he was married to didn’t understand this. Tor has an icy exterior and makes sure nobody sees his weaknesses, most of all Neve. He'd rather treat her with contempt than showing her parts of his real self. Tor doesn’t like dealing with the media, especially not with the woman who doesn’t back down from a challenging article.

It isn’t easy for Tor not to think about Neve. She rubs him the wrong way, but there’s something about her that makes him want to get closer to her as well. When they meet outside of work for the first time, sparks fly. How will they make getting to know each other work when they professionally detest one another? Tor asks Neve to be his date to a wedding he'd rather not attend. Will she agree to be his support system and do Tor and Neve have a chance to make things work between them or will their jobs make it impossible for them to connect?

Head Coach is a sexy love story. Neve is a strong and independent woman. She works in a world that’s dominated by men and has fought hard to earn respect. Tor doesn’t like dealing with the reporter with claws, but secretly he wants to get to know Neve better. He’s a complex person, troubled by insecurities and the same goes for Neve. On the outside they come across as confident and tough, but on the inside they’re sensitive and vulnerable. When they peel off each other’s layers they discover there’s a lot they like about each other. There’s much more between them than the initial hate and their chemistry is through the roof. I couldn’t turn the pages quickly enough to find out if they’d be able to get rid off all the negative feelings and go for love instead. 

Lia Riley knows how to make sparks fly. I love how well her main characters connect. She always manages to describe their feelings on many different levels and that makes it possible for the readers to really get to know her main characters. I love how each moment of passion truly means something. She combines these deep moments with adorable quirks and this results in wonderful romance. I absolutely loved Head Coach, it’s sporty, fun and entertaining.

Advice

If you love reading romance with strong athletic heroes and feisty heroines you don't want to miss the Hellions Angels series. The books can easily be read as standalones.
