Delayed Penalty by Shey Stahl

I am Evan Masen, a hockey player for the NHL. I spend my nights roughing up two hundred pound defensemen and spend more time in the penalty box than I do on the ice.
That's my job.
One night changes everything I thought I once knew about my life on the ice.
A girl.
A brutally beaten girl left to die in an alley.
I don't know why or how but something made me stay that night after taking her to the hospital. I didn't know her, nor did I have an obligation to stay but something inside of me rooted me there telling me I should.
And I wouldn't have been me if I just simply left her there.
Any man who could put his heart and soul into a game of hockey couldn't just walk away when someone needed them. She had no one else.
The same guy who saw determination where there was desire, now saw hope where there was once despair.
I couldn't just leave as that wasn't a man that put all he had into something some called just a game. I couldn't walk away from someone holding onto life, weak and powerless to something she had no control over.
So I stayed. In a room full of family members praying for their loved ones to come through, I prayed for a girl I didn't know, never met before, to have a beating heart. While others sorrows turned to grieving pain, I sat waiting on the words of the unknown.

Wow what a great book. I had not read anything by this author, and just happened by this book in sports romance, but will be reading more! What a beautiful love story that became out of something so tragic. I learned loads about hockey, which I found truly enjoyable. If there ever was a perfect book boyfriend, EVAN IS IT! OMG, what a great hero! Alpha guy with a heart of gold. This is one one those books you cannot put down. Well worth reading, and you won't be dissapointed.

Really does need an editor. I just couldn't get over how sporadic and in need of editing this book was. Characters were unbelievable,young, and nothing seemed very clear in relation to the main romantic theme. Don't buy this in hopes that maybe it'll be decent and you can overlook editing. You won't .

I've never been a big hockey fan, but damn, now I can't wait to watch some! I felt like I was right there with them each time! Loved Evan and Ami's story. Can't wait for Leo's and hopefully Remy's!

I read alot of books..prob to many. This book touched me on so many levels. It is not your typical romance and I appreciated that!!

Good story but needs an editor. This book has the potential to be 5 star if it had been more believable. First off, the characters are way too young. Secondly, inconsistencies and inaccuracies plague the writing. Evan breaks his hand but can still play hockey? Hopefully the author will find an editor to tighten up her prose.

WOW!!!! this may not be your average told story., but it is beautifully told., &they way in which Evan & Ami meet and find each other, which is not you typical boy meets girl story... & yet it is one of the most touching stories by far.. their is no reason or rhyme too it ..their are not candy's or flowers..their is no shape or form to it.. and it normal doesn't happen when you want or would like it to happen., it just happens and most of the time you are not aware it is happening., which is what happens to Evan & Ami., this is their story to tell ., so I let you read it which I recommend you do ... a must read for sure  <3 :)

WoW....this book was amazing, very emotional, but I also laughed & the love story was incredible. I'm not a big Hockey fan, but born & raised in a Suburb outside of was exciting to read that this book focused on 1 of the main characters a Chicago Blackhawks Player named "Evan aka Mase". After reading I can't wait to watch my 1st Blackhawks game today & it's the Stanley Cup Finals :)

Delayed Penalty a story like no other. A story that will stay with you way after you are done reading. Author Shey Stahl is one that has not disappointed her fans. Her writing style is one that is appreciated. She writes about a difficult topic with characters that make you fall in love with them as they deal with consequences of a horrific event. Evan Mason a bad boy turned sweet after he encounters being in the right place and saving Ami. The bond between these characters was something that every reader should experience. It was sweet, pure, and passionate. I absolutely loved it! DIANNA A.
