Meet Royce: a brand new contemporary sports romance standalone in the Sidewinders series from USA Today Bestselling Author Kat Mizera

Love gets messy when Royce finally meets his match...

Professional hockey player Royce Lenahan grew up surrounded by chaos, so as an adult he likes things nice and orderly: His apartment, his hockey schedule, even his dates. When his best friend and teammate asks him to take his visiting sister to a rock concert, he isn't expecting the sultry, leather-clad vixen who has his jaw dropping.

Force of nature Kristina Papadakis feels like two separate people sometimes: The demure, proper Greek girl she was raised to be, and the badass rock musician she could be. She's never had a problem keeping her worlds apart until her brother's straight-laced but oh-so-hot teammate stumbles into both of them, creating a collision she wasn't expecting.

As Royce and Tina explore an unexpected but undeniable passion, they soon discover that love isn't always enough. Opposites might attract, but they'll have to learn to compromise if they want to last.

About the Author

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she's called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She's never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she'd probably choose the west coast.

Kat's a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she's not writing, she's either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) - traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world.

As a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years, she sold her first article--a review of a rock concert--for $10 in 1985 and since then has been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer.

You can probably guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There's something enticing about hockey players and romance...

This was a great hockey story which I was totally engrossed in from start to finish. Why this is my first book by Kat Mizera, I have absolutely no idea, but it will not be my last. I loved Royce Lenahan, a professional hockey player and Kristina Papadakis (Tina), a not so traditional Greek woman whom I really gravitated too. As Royce and Tina explore their unexpected passion and love of music, it is obvious that although there is a great deal of chemistry, there are also issues which will make their relationship more like a roller coaster ride. Opposites can and do attract but is that enough to sustain a relationship? Royce has so many obvious issues that he needs to come to terms with from his past, before they can attempt a life together or are they destined to explode? I swiftly became invested in Royce and Tina’s story. This was a well written story of love, forgiveness and acceptance. It will tug at your emotions and was at times an emotional read as Royce and Tina struggled to compromise, without losing themselves. I really felt for both Royce and Tina, however, at times Royce really was a jerk and I wanted to smack him across the back of his head and tell him to wake up. I loved all the secondary characters and as and when time permits I will be reading the previous books in the series. I cannot wait until the next book in the Las Vegas Sidewinders series.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I have never read anything by this author, so I didn't know what to expect. She rocked my world with all of the emotions in this book. Royce is a control freak. There is no nice way to put it. He has to have everything a certain way and that is it. Tina is a free spirit and is not ruled by tradition or convention. This is a great story of opposites attract. The love is there, but tolerance is running thin. I love when Tina tells Royce that she loves him too much to change him. This book runs the gamut of emotions so be prepared. Love, lust, fear, tolerance, anger, depression and desperation. You may need hankies, you may not, but you WILL laugh.

This is another great book in the Las Vegas Sidewinders series. Royce and Tina are complete opposites. Royce loves everything organized and complete control of his life. Tina has an artistic heart and loves to let go and enjoy life. You would've think these two would work, but they do. I fell in love with these two instantly. They helped balanced each other out. I did feel for both of them. Royce had a hard time letting go though he really needed to (I loved the conversation his dad had with him) and Tina had a hard time always sticking to Royce's orderly needs. It broke my heart when they couldn't keep their relationship going, though I think the time helped. As usual the secondary characters were wonderful and really added dimension to the story. I love that this team tries to help each other out when they can. I loved meeting Casey. She was a great friend and so down to earth. Great story! Looking forward to more (especially Zaan's story cause he sounds interesting).

Sexy, heartfelt romance! Royce is doing his best friend a favor by taking Tina to a concert, which sets off a chain reaction of events that make it impossible for Royce to ignore his undeniable attraction to her. As these two maneuver the usual obstacles of their separate careers and family, a deeper problem surfaces that might not be so easy to overcome. This romance is more about how they learn to make things work than it is about how they come together. The devil is in the details, they say, and that's true for Royce and Tina. I loved how Tina stood up for herself, even at such a great cost, and it was so heartwarming to see Royce awaken to the realization of what he needed to do next. Theirs is a love of a lifetime, and the HEA was as beautiful as could be. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Welcome back to the world of the Las Vegas Sidewinders. This is the story of Royce (whom I absolutely adored) and Tina. I loved them so much. Tina, the free spirit working to make her dreams come true and Royce the teammate of her brother. What could possibly go wrong there? Their romance is a quick one and hearts are shattered and lives are changed. Do they have what it takes to piece the broken hearts and make their happily ever after? This was a wonderful story and it was great to see some of my favorite Sidewinders pop up in Royce and Tina's story.

This is book #10, in the Las Vegas Sidewinders series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to enjoy and understand the series, I recommend reading this series in order. Royce is a professional hockey player who likes things to be just so. What he never sees coming is the little sister of his best friend. She is all woman and he has no problem taking notice. Kristina is a proper Greek girl, at least some of the time. Other times, she is a real rock guru and future star. She notices Royce after an incident that they both barely make it through. She also notes how much more of a gentleman, and what a caring individual he can be. This was such an amazing book. I loved getting to know these characters. No one expects either of them to come out of their comfort zones - so it was awesome to read about! There are some familiar characters you will see in this story as well. Never disappointed with this great series. ***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review.

A mismatch made in heaven has to first make it's way through hell. Mizera keeps it naughty with an enchanting tale of opposites and the people who love them. Royce and Tina look at the world differently. Royce needs order to help him unwind and Tina needs chaos to help her feel alive. When their two worlds meet it's a personality clash with explosive results. Can the planner and the free spirit survive the drama of falling in love? Mizera never ceases to tempt with humor and heart. A wickedly sexy read.
