Book Blurb:

He’s a hockey star with a headboard full of notches. She’s a shy NHL concession worker at who’s never been kissed.
They don’t call me Belinda Boring for nothing. It’s my name, after all. And for a 23-year-old with plain brown hair who still lives at home and gets tongue tied over nothing, it’s a fitting one. I’m not even one of those quiet girls with a hidden talent, unless making a mean order of nachos at the NHL arena I work at counts. My life consists of working, reading and harboring a secret crush on a hockey player who doesn’t know I exist. At least, until we accidentally meet and become unlikely friends.
I’m living the dream. A poor kid who worked his way into the NHL, I’ll never forget where I came from, though I try to. My past follows me, a nagging reminder that I’ll never be what everyone thinks I am. As the threat of my secret being exposed looms closer, my game slips, leaving me in danger of being cut from my team--the only family I have. I’m losing my hold on everything when a new friend helps me find hope. She’s nothing like the women I’m used to, but by the time I figure out that’s exactly why she’s right for me, I’ve lost my chance with her. Somehow, I have to convince a woman who thinks she’s invisible that she’s the only one I see.

Review by Jen Skewes

Victor is the third book in the Chicago Blaze series.  I could not wait for his book.  Unfortunately for me it was missing something.  I enjoyed it but I just didn’t love it.  

Lindy works at the arena that the Blaze play at.  She is a concession girl who is a big hockey fan and even bigger fan of Victor Lane. She even had a big poster of him in her room, up until about 3 years ago.  She knows that her crush on him will never go anywhere.  In her eyes he can have any woman he wants and there is no way that he would go for her.   When she is on a break one night at work, she sneaks into the arena for a few minutes.  She never expected to see Victor practicing by himself on the ice.  She hopes that he won’t see her, but no such luck. What came net she never in a million years expected.  Their little conversation turned into a friendship. Yes, a friendship with Victor Lane. What could be better than that? Dating him of course.  

Victor has been having his own issues, both on and off the ice.  Meeting Lindy that night was like a breath of fresh air.  He needs a friend like her in his life, and it doesn’t hurt that she’s beautiful. But right now, all he can offer her is a friendship.  When he realizes that he wants more, will it be too late?

I enjoyed this book but at the same time it was missing something.  I felt like it all just seemed so easy. There was not much drama or angst, and part of the book just didn’t make sense to me as to why it happened. /I loved the characters, Lindy and Victor was very cute together and I love her gather and his friends and how protective they were of her.  But it still fell a little flat for me.
