The Brick Wallby Stephanie Julian
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Redtails Hockey goaltender Shane Conrad had been having a great year...until recently. His slump couldn't happen at a worse time. He needs to get his head in the game, not find a woman to screw with it. Until he meets Bliss Vescovi. She's the perfect distraction--hot as hell in bed and smart enough out of it to realize their affair will end with the season.
Bliss isn't looking for a commitment, especially not from an intense, driven man used to control. Her ex's need for control had nearly made her his emotional slave and she's sworn she'll never give another man that kind of hold over her again. But a one-night stand with a hot hockey player who won't be around forever? Totally doable.
Until Shane's off-beat humor and killer smile get around the guard on her heart. And Bliss's open warmth makes him believe the game might not be everything there is in life.
When Shane gets called up to the NHL, Bliss believes she's found the perfect way to break up. But Shane's nickname isn't Brick Wall for nothing. He won't go down without a fight because he knows, no matter where he is, Bliss belongs at his side.

What a great start to a new series by Stephanie Julian!!! The Brick Wall is Book 1 in the new Redtails hockey series. In this book we are introduced to Shane Conrad, the Redtails' goalie. He is currently in a slump and his friend Cary the team captain wants to help him work on it. In addition to helping Shane with extra practice, Cary invites Shane to a holiday party to unwind since he thinks Shane is overthinking things. Shane doesn't want to go to the party but does anyway. At the party, Shane meets Bliss Vescovi. She is a very strong woman who works at her aunt's bridal salon. There is instant chemistry between Shane and Bliss. Neither one of them are looking for a relationship but are drawn to each other and decide to see how things progress. I really enjoyed reading Shane and Bliss's story. I also liked meeting the other characters in the series. They all interact like a big family and look out for each other. I am looking forward to reading more of this series!!!
It was a good book, but 90 pages is kind of a rip off for $2.99.
Good love story
