Overview

“Sophia Henry tackles real issues that tug at your heartstrings,” raves bestselling author Rachel Harris. Now, in this sweet, sensual Pilots Hockey novel, a young single mom falls for a damaged coach pulling double duty as a cop.
 
Linden Meadows doesn’t back down from anyone, especially if her family’s involved. So when her little brother’s new hockey coach benches him in the middle of a game, Linden lets him have it. She also notices that the coach is way hotter than she expects, but Linden won’t let herself get burned by another athlete. Been there, done that—and had a kid at seventeen to show for it.
 
When Jason Taylor isn’t taking abuse from hockey moms, he’s patrolling the streets as a member of the Bridgeland PD. After Jason pulls Linden over for speeding, he begins to see that there’s more to her than a big mouth . . . or a lead foot. Their chemistry leads to good company, intense conversation, and an intimacy that pushes beyond the boundaries of friendship. And yet Linden’s decision to keep her now three-year-old son, Holden, is a painful reminder to Jason that his own mother gave him up for adoption.
 
Linden’s sure she’s found the man to round out their family. But when Holden’s deadbeat dad forces his way back into the picture, Jason starts to back off. He needs time—to heal, to grow, and to love with all his heart.

This book is the third installment in the Pilot's Hockey series. I have read the other two and it was fun to revisit characters from the past books and see the progression in their relationships. We met Jason in the first two books in this series. When he is not working as a police officer he coaches hockey. Jason first meets Linden when he benches her younger brother. The story evolves from there and they begin cautiously dating. Linden is cautious due to her young child and Jason due to his past (which we briefly learned about in previous books). Both characters have issues to overcome (potential living apart, a dead beat father, abandonment issues etc.) before they can have their happily ever after. They do so with some great banter, steamy scenes, and compromise.

Jason Taylor is rookie cop in the small town of Bridgeland and is also a coach for a youth hockey league. He is the older brother of Professional NHL player Landon (book 2) and while this book is sports related it doesn't feature a lot of actual playtime. Linden (Indy) Meadows is a single mother that lives with her mom and little brother. She works two jobs and spends most of free time focusing on her family. They meet when she picks up her brother from practice and boy do the sparks fly! They hit it off and start to date. All things are good until Jason listens to Indy's ex and he decides to break it off so they can be a family.... Will Jason and Indy be able to work things out or will their differences separate them forever? I have loved all the books in the Pilots series and I really enjoyed Interference as well. I liked both characters, the setting, and plot. Overall, it was a really good book that I would recommend to fans of small town and new adult romances. I was given a free copy for an honest review.

Interference is the sweet story of the romance between police officer and hockey coach, Jason, and single mom, Indie who works two jobs and is working on her college degree. I liked Jason and Indie and also the supporting characters. The book doesn't really have anything to do with the Pilots hockey team so that is a little misleading. The story is pretty tame with no explicit sex but it is an enjoyable read. 3.5 stars. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher, in return for an honest review.

This is the 3rd book in the Pilots Hockey series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, please read in the order intended. Linden AKA "Indie" has a lot on her plate. When she meets Jason at her brothers hockey game, she is not impressed. Later, they meet again, and again, since this small town seems to be throwing them together. Jason has noticed how hot Indie is. He just has to make her see how sincere he is in pursuing her. There are still secrets that both are holding back. The sparks between them seem to be fanning the flame and its only a matter of time.... I loved this story! I laughed. I cried and I FELT. I love when a book or series makes me feel. This is one of the best I have read in a while. I cannot wait to read the next installment in the series. ***This ARC copy was given by Netgalley and its publishers in exchange for an honest review.

Such a beautiful book! I have to say this series is becoming one of my all time favorites, each book has something unique to it and each one has given me a little punch to the heart/feels. In this book we are introduced to Linden and Jason, they meet when Linden screams at Jason because he just screamed at her little brother. Jason is the cop/hockey coach who is immediately attracted to Linden, but Linden has her reservations about Jason and possibly start something together. The book is full of swoony moments; there were a lot of laugh and also a lot of serious but also heartwarming moments between these two and their families. It was so great to have the book not only focused on the two main characters but in their families as well because that always makes us see them in different lights. Sophia Henry is a fabulous writer and I can’t wait for more! I wonder who is next.

Interference was an enjoyable sports romance that I won’t soon forget. I absolutely loved the chemistry between the players. Interference brings us a combination humor, heartbreak, shock, and love. There is something magical about being able to connect to the characters as if you really know them, or when the reader feels like they are part of the story. I had that feeling all the way through Interference. This is the third book in the Pilots Hockey series, although I haven’t read the others I was still able to fully enjoy this one. I can’t wait to read the others now though.

I am really enjoying this series! You do have to overlook the fact that this installment has even less hockey in it than usual (Jason's a coach for high school age kids, though his brother's Landon from the second book, Power Play ). The characters go to a few hockey games, and watch at least one on TV, but the focus in this book is far more on the characters' non-hockey existence than Pilots hockey. Fortunately, I liked Jason and Linden so much that it didn't really bother me. But consider yourself warned--if you're suffering from withdrawal symptoms because your team once again didn't even make it into the postseason, let alone into the Cup finals, this book isn't going to fill the void. But if you're looking for a story about a strong female single mother protagonist and the really great guy she's dating? (Though he definitely tarnishes his halo toward the end...not only during their relationship black moment, but holy crap in the bar. I was not crazy about his behavior in the bar, no matter how much it was provoked. Fortunately, though, he's pretty awesome for about 95% of the book, including a great ending, so that makes it mostly better.) Then this could be the book for you. I really liked Indie, and am totally in love with her little boy, Holden. I loved how she completely changed the focus of her life when she got pregnant with him at seventeen, and how her mother and younger brother rallied around to help her raise her son right. She's working two jobs and finishing up her college degree and is managing to raise a three-year-old who's not only adorable but has darn good manners and is just an all-around good kid. Can I say how much I loved that she made him add a "please" onto each of his requests? And that he remembered to do so after only one prompting? Ah, fictional children... I also loved how she got Jason to see his birth mother, who also got pregnant as a teenager, in a new light. He'd long resented the fact that he'd been "given up" at birth, even more so when he learned that his mother had kept Auden, his younger sister (and heroine of book one in the series, Delayed Penalty ), born four years later. Obviously, the topic of teen pregnancy was a hot button one for both of them, and I was so glad that Indie was able to help Jason to get over his hangup with him mom--essentially by taking him down a couple of pegs. Indie is darn good at doing that to Jason, which was something the guy definitely needed every now and then. You know, just to keep him humble ;) I so absolutely love Jason's adopted family, though. Especially his relationship with his mother--So. Awesome. They ways in which they all interact with each other, actually, makes for some really fun reading. We did get to see the main characters from the first two books a bit--mostly because Jason's related to two of them--which was a lot of fun. If you haven't read the others, though, this one should work okay as a standalone. (Though things will "click" slightly better for you if you have read them, and one of Indie and Jason's lunch dates in particular will be even more awesome if you've at least read book 1. It's not necessary, but it will give the scene more meaning.) I'm really hoping Ms. Henry has more from this series to come. I really enjoy her writing, though if she'd put a bit more hockey in her books, you wouldn't see me complaining. Rating: 4 stars / A- I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you to Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept via NetGalley for a copy of this book! Jason is not only a police officer, but he's an abused hockey coach by moms. Especially one Linden Meadows who has a brother on Jason's team. Jason benches him in the middle of the game and Linden goes off on him! Although she's attracted to him, after what she went through with a certain baby daddy (she got pregnant at 17), she's a little gun shy when it comes to men. To add to the mixture, what happens when said baby daddy comes back into the picture? Where does that leave Jason? LOVED this story! Jason is hot! Linden is such a strong person! I'm not really a sports person, but this was a great book!

Young mom, Indie, living her life for her son. Trying to gain experience in his job, Jason coaches a hockey team and works as a cop. Their first introduction is not a pleasant one, but soon sparks fly. A three-year-old boy is the focus of their reasons for loving and hurting each other. The story is sweet with some anxious moments until common sense and love win out.
MJSanders1021 More than 1 year ago
This was a sweet light read. Indie and Hason were too cute for words and their banter and how they tried to help each other by surprises was pretty. I enjoyed how she set him straight about letting go of his anger. It is a hard choice and one that his mother made for his own good. The messed up part was the grandparents not being open and reaching out. He was still a part of what they loss. Indie spitfire self was whitty and had enough self doubt it almost reminded me of myself. Shoot she did her thing as a mother as well as daughter and sister. She never gave up and took no mess from DB Tim or scared Jason. Hats off girly.

5 Star Review This is book 3 in the Pilots Hockey series and in this one we meet single mum Linden Meadows who falls for her younger brothers hockey coach who is also the local cop Jason Taylor. Linden stands up for what she believes in and she tells it as it is so when her brother is benched during a game she gets right in the coaches face then she finds that same coach pulling her over for speeding, when will she get a break ... Jason finds himself not only pulling her over for speeding but asking her out on a date. Just when things get good and moving in the right direction the past rears its ugly head in the form of a deadbeat father wanting to get to know his son, will they get through it? I love this series and I loved that this book was connected to hockey without it being just about a player. This book had twists and turns some that made want to scream some that made me cry. It also had a three year old called Holden who I feel in love with. Great read

Jason Taylor is using his time serving as a Bridgeland police officer as a stepping stone to a bigger and better plan, one that involves him eventually moving home to Detroit and landing a job with Detroit PD. When he's not patrolling the streets in Bridgeland, he's on the ice at the local ice rink coaching high school hockey, which gives him a chance to still live out a small slice of of his hockey playing dreams. He loves the game, but was never quite good enough to make it to the big leagues, so he deciding coaching was the next best thing to it, not to mention it still gives him an opportunity to be on the ice. Between work and hockey he is left with very little time for a social life, which isn't a big deal to him because love isn't a part of his five year plan anyway... but the minute he meets Linden Meadows he starts to think it might be time to reconfigure his plan! Linden Meadows never expected to become a mother at the age of 17, but with her families support and her determination to succeed she has found a way to make the best of her situation. The minute word spread that she was expecting everyone in town was certain she had done it to trap the hometown football hero into marriage, but that wasn't the case at all, after graduation he left town and never looked back, and broke her heart in the process. So, from that point on she became a single parent, and has been doing just fine without his help. Between going to college, working, and taking care of her child she has little free time for much of anything else, and honestly she wouldn't want it any other way, the last time she tried love she got burned, and she has no intention of repeating past mistakes. But the minute she comes face to face with one of Bridgeland's finest police officers she begins to question her no love plan... The mere mention of a hockey player and I was intrigued, and after I dived into it I was really glad I decided to take a chance on it, it turned out to be a very engaging and heartwarming read. This was my first time reading something from this author, and I have to say that her writing totally took me by surprise, and instantly made me regret not reading something by her before now! She completely won me over with her beautifully written story line, and made it almost impossible for me not to completely fall for head over heels for her tight knit group of charming characters, they had my heart barely a chapter into it!! Definitely one of the most impressive first reads I have had the pleasure of reading in some time, I highly recommend you meet these characters, their story will warm your heart and leave you with a unshakable smile on your face!

This is an awesome story but for you hockey romance lovers this isn't really a "hockey romance". Linden Meadows is a woman who loves her family fiercely and when she sees her brother's hockey coach chewing him out and benching him she steps in and gives the coach a piece of her mind! The last thing Jason Taylor needs is some irate hockey mom yelling at him for doing what needs to be done. This particular woman doesn't seem old enough to have a kid on the team so what's up with her? These two meet again when Jason is on patrol at his real job of working for the Bridgeland PD. It would seem that not only does she have a quick temper but Linden also has a lead foot! As these two really get to know each other, the attraction between grows intense and strong. There can never be a future for Jason and Linden though. He's only in Bridgeland for a short time as a career stepping stone and she has deep roots in this little town. Not to mention a mother, brother, and small son who all count on her! This is a very good read and a book I definitely recommend.

4 1/2 of 5 Stars Sophia Henry scores a hat trick with the third book in the Pilots Hockey Series, Interference. Linden (Indie) Meadows, finds her little brother’s new hockey coach, Jason Taylor, not only irritating but attractive. The two have some heated confrontations. Then Jason gains respect for Linden for raising her three-year-old son on her own, unlike his mother who gave him up for adoption. This contemporary sports romance takes place in Bridgeland, Michigan and Detroit. It is suitable for new adult/adult audiences. Sophia Henry does a great job with both her plot and character development. The characters’ deal with many emotional issues and grow throughout the novel. I love how the story shows two different viewpoints of a similar situation: Linden keeping and raising her son as a single mom, and Jason, who was given up for adoption, it made some interesting dynamics and situations. I like how the characters are interrelated. Jason is the biological brother of Auden Berezin from book one, Delayed Penalty. He is also the adopted brother of Landon Taylor from book two, Power Play. Plus, there are a whole bunch of other character connections that make the story interesting. I love the banter of the Tayler family. They are a wonderful family that I would want to be friends with in real life. I appreciated that Auden and Landon were in this story. I love Indie’s son Holden. He is a cutie. His dad, Tim, is a jerk. There were a number of interesting twists in the story. The plot was heartfelt and believable. I enjoy Sophia Henry’s writing style and look forward to her next book. Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review.

Hatrick This is the third book in the pilot hockey series, Indie is a single young mother and Jason is a police office from Detroit. This a good story about a young mother trying to learn to trust again after being hurt by the guy who got her pregnant and the town who left her. With the help of her family and her will to move on an give a good life to her son. Jason is trying to get experience in a small town so he can move back to Detroit and also coaches the kcal hockey team. Watching him get false to indie and her son and there relation grow and the obstacles are true. Sophia Henry wrote another admirable read.

My introduction to Sophia Henry and her Pilots series was through Power Play. Gaby and Landon had a meaty story but there was a disconnect for me. So I decided to try again with Interference. Ms. Henry is consistent in her willingness to tackle subjects that are painful. From the beginning she delivers that one, two punch. Complex people facing their demons and working to overcome them. Jason has baggage that has followed him into adulthood. From abandonment and trust issues, to an attraction that pulls the scab off a partially healed wound. Linden has worked to become a responsible young woman. An act of rebellion in her teens left her with more responsibility than she expected and the shame of disappointment. Interference redeemed Sophia Henry in my eyes. Sympathy, empathy and hope are the stepping stones to an amazing and inspirational story.
