Overview

USA Today bestselling author Catherine Gayle presents the first novel in the sexy Tulsa Thunderbirds hockey romance series, a spin-off from her popular Portland Storm series.

They both need to make amends...
But they might be making more than that.

Tulsa Thunderbirds goaltender Hunter Fielding has a lot of kissing up to do following a few brash and uncalled-for statements. Now he needs to prove to the watchful eyes that he's changed for the better. But cozying up to Little-Miss-Perfect-Gone-Bad isn't his idea of making amends.

Agreeing to marry a hockey star to clear her "bad girl" reputation is the worst idea Oklahoma's former sweetheart, Tallulah Belle Roth, has ever heard. With cameras constantly in their faces, Hunter and Tallie need to prove their sickeningly-sweet, do-good lives are the real deal-just to Bury the Hatchet once and for all.

But when the cameras are off, desire burns hot. Can fake and just for show turn into something real and forever?

I love the beginning of a new series and I love hockey so this book was it for me! I'm not sure I've read a book about the goaltender before so that part of the book was very interesting to me. These two characters.. so different but so much alike, Goaltender and Beauty Queen both needing something the don't realize until they find it in each other. Another great read, can't wait for the next one!

I enjoyed how the romance unfolded. Excited to see Razor back on a team. Loved Tallied and her sassyness. Looking forward to the next book in this series

Not the best start to a spin off series. I found it to be more about what is going on around the couple then about the couple.

I loved this first book in the author's Tulsa Thunderbirds hockey series, which is a spin off from her fabulous Portland Storm series! Hunter and Tallie were great together and I also enjoyed seeing some of the characters from the Portland Storm series. You don't have to read the previous series though. This book makes perfect sense on it's own. I cannot wait for the next book to come out!

Tallie and Hunter have an unusual relationship, and you're soon flicking your ereader's pages as fast as you can read to find out where they are going to end up. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!

I loved this book. I had pre-ordered it and received it yesterday on its release day. I have already finished it. Hunter and Tallie's story is a great read. If you like the Portland Storm series you will love the start of Tulsa Thunderbirds also. Some of your favorites from Portland Storm are here - Zee, Dana, Razor to name a few. I cannot wait for Smoke Signals to come out in October (Razor's story). I also loved the swear jar and how scene and how all of the team members handed money over to cover any swearing they might do in the first month.

This book started slow for me. As much as I wanted to like it starting out, I just wasn't. The premise seems contrived - two people who have damaged their public reputation will redeem themselves by getting married? You would expect to redeem your reputation by marrying someone with a spotless record, not someone whose public persona is as screwed up as yours. And, woo hoo, for a long time, I really disliked Tallie. She fits the definition of a "sheep" to a "T", not able to make decisions for herself or express her own opinion. But, that is what her mother and her creepy image consultant Lance have created and she has perfected it. We really got to know Hunter in this book. I like how they portray his relationships with Carrie and his brother, and showed that beneath all of his anger and disappointment around his brother, there is still a seed of love left. He is an alpha hero who immediately sees the need to protect Tallie, and also to release her from the figurative chains that have bound her her entire life. He does that in spades and throughout the book, you see Tallie emerge as the truly sensitive woman that she is beneath the plucking and the makeup and the airbrushing forced upon her. I enjoyed the character development of Tallie the most and by the end of the book, I found myself reading faster and faster to see how Tallie and Hunger work out. The author has indicated that this series may be a bit more sensual / erotic than the Portland Storm series from which this was spun off. Unfortunately, to me, that only translated into an almost excessive use of the "f" word, even when Tallie and Hunter were expressing their feelings for each other. I believe a book can be sensual and even erotic and not have to devolve into crassness, which I felt this did at times. I also struggled early on with some "pop culture" references the author includes - such as Game of Thrones - which will make this book lose some relevance quickly. I haven't watched Game of Thrones so I have no frame of reference for this mention and as time passes, readers will have little to no context with which to understand this statement. So, after what I consider a weak start to the book, with characters I struggled to like and relate to as the book begins, as the book progressed it became enthralling to me and an enjoyable read by the end. All of what I would expect from Catherine Gayle and her hockey-based romances!

An ARC was provided for an honest review Bury the Hatchet is an awesome start to Catherine Gayle’s new Tulsa Thunderbirds series! We all have fallen in love with the Portland Storm guys, but now we have a whole new group of guys to get to know and there are even a few familiar faces in the mix too. Hunter Fielding was happy with the Portland Storm and while he is one of the best goalies in the league, it didn’t stop them from allowing him to be claimed in the expansion draft by the new Tulsa Thunderbirds team. To say Hunter wasn’t thrilled is an understatement and a few unsavory comments about Oklahomans have landed him in really, really hot water. When Hunter shows up to meet with the teams top brass for the first time, they have what they think is the perfect solution to get their star goalie back in the good graces of the locals. Tallulah Belle Roth has known nothing but pageants her entire life and one night of just being a normal twenty-one year old has blown apart her opportunity to ascend to the top of the pageant ladder when her title of Miss Oklahoma USA is stripped from her. For a girl who has always been the “it” girl she has now found herself falling from grace. In order to get her back in high esteem with her fellow Oklahomans, it’s been decided that she and Hunter will be married, within days, and will put on the show of their lives for the next year to rehabilitate both of their images. What you get when you throw two people into a marriage that a) don’t know one another and b) are insanely attracted to each other, is one crazy relationship. Both Tallie and Hunter are willing to do what they have to do in public to make everyone believe they are head over heels in love, but it’s when they are behind closed doors that it is becoming harder and harder for them to deny that the things they are feeling toward one another are real feelings and not just the product of this fake marriage. Will Tallie learn that her life is now her own and that means she can do anything she wants, including have her husband? Will Hunter’s brother cause more problems for them than they could have every imagined? And, is there a bigger threat out there that neither of them recognized at first? I fell in love with Hunter and Tallie. This was a couple that I wanted to see make it from the first second they met. It was obvious that both of them had something to offer the other that they had not been able to find anywhere or with anyone else. Catherine Gayle wove another fantastic story and I like that Hunter had the edge that he did. I’m looking forward to the next installment of this series in the fall. I’d highly recommend this one for sure!
