The core group of friends who found their happy endings are back, still loving hockey almost as much as their women. Now, four years later, the Eagles find themselves in the finals, with home ice advantage and on the cusp of winning the Stanley Cup once again.

It all started with a second chance, for Becca to just say yes to forever.

And is Kinley still living the dream after scoring the player?

What does life have in store for Madison and Richard, now that they decided playing for keeps is much more satisfying than friends with benefits.

When Mark vowed to Laura he would protect her heart, he meant it from the very beginning. He was all-in, forever, no matter what.

Reese and Austin's chance meeting turned their worlds upside down in a single instant. Hot and heavy against the boards had their chemistry melting the ice.

Along with retirements, new positions, and additions to not only the team, but each of the families, come meet some new players who will lead us out of the First Intermission and into the second period.

The First Intermission is book six in the Indianapolis Eagles series and while the series books can be read as a standalone (if this is what you chose to do), this book cannot and should be read after you read the series. It’s like we won the Stanley Cup this time! Haha. In this book we get to see all our favorite characters with a “Where are they now?” and “Where are they heading from a team aspect?” I loved how the author made it into one story with all characters. You will fall in love with them all over again and are excited with the many leads that are occurring in each family or should I say “BIG” growing families. It makes your heart happy and I hope that the First Intermission characters continue to live on in the second period. Let’s see if the Fall season will lead up a home ice advantage and score us another shot at the Cup!

Oh how I loved this idea! A book solely dedicated to the past characters in the Indianapolis Eagles series! I have loved every one of these characters and to see what the future holds for them is fantastic! Ms. Lind has a talent to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary! When you read this you will see what I mean! From kids and marriage, to love and friendship, you get it all in this! Oh and let me not forget to tell you, you get heat, you get smexy times and come on, hot hockey players with their kiddos? Talk about ovaries exploding! Ms. Lind has a talent of writing realism that makes the reader really become part of the story, I felt like I was right there with the whole crew. I want to be a part of this world for real! As Ms. Lind has said repeatedly, you have to read the other books in this series to read this and trust me you will want to! Well done Ms. Lind! I cannot wait to read more from this series!!

The Indianapolis Eagles Series is one of my favorites and I always wondered what the future held for the fun couples. Samantha Lind has answered my question with her latest book “The First Intermission”, which takes place four years after the last installment. Time has passed, their lives are different but the love between the couples has grown stronger and their friendships are everlasting. Becca and Scott are still very much in love and she needs to support him as he makes an important decision that will change their lives forever. Their son Michael is five, and is about to enter kindergarten. Of course he already plays hockey, loves to swim with his Dad and helps Becca around the house. Kinley and Brian have a four year old daughter Hadley, who is the apple of her father’s eye. He is content with his girls but Kinley is still determined to do whatever she can to get pregnant. She feels discouraged but Brian is always there for her with a big hug and unconditional love. It took a long time for Madison and Richard to get together and sometimes he regrets not telling her sooner how he felt. He is also making a big decision about his future and so is Madison, and they need to work as a team to prepare for a busy time in their lives. Laura and Mark are such a romantic couple and he will always remember when she finally agreed to go on a date with him, because it was a dream come true. Her zest for life and beautiful smile make him always want to hold her close and keep her safe. Hockey brought them together but being a family is the best part of his life. Reese and Austin definitely make beautiful music together and he knew when he met her that she was the one for him. Having two busy careers isn’t easy but they always make time to be together. Reese may need to rearrange her tour schedule and find room on her tour bus for a new addition. We also meet the Goalie coach for the Eagles, Matt and his wife, Bridget. Their daughter Julia is a Physical Therapist who treats Beckett, the new goalie for the team. Sparks fly between the young couple and I can’t wait to see if dating the coach’s daughter is really a good idea. Their story “The Hardest Shot”, will be coming out this Fall.

This book was so much fun, and totally different from most of the other books I've read recently. This book, book 6 in the Indianapolis Eagles Hockey Series, is not a complete romance story, and should not be read with that expectation. The author has written this book to be more of a transition. This story takes place several years after the other books, and lots of changes are happening. Life has moved on for the Eagles players, and their families. Older players are retiring, and finding that there is life after hockey. Younger players are moving up to begin their lives with the Eagles. Kids are growing up, and babies are being born. But underneath it all, they are all still one big, happy family! I loved the follow up that this book provides for the much loved characters from previous stories. It's something we don't always get. I loved meeting all of the new babies, seeing how much the characters are still in love. I also loved meeting new characters, and seeing the possibilities that the author has in store for us in the upcoming books! In short, this book was a great story, and I can't wait to see what is coming next!

"I turn toward the voice that has haunted my dreams since I first heard it all those weeks ago. The one I've dreamed of many nights. The one girl I can never touch because of who she is." Wow! This book is packed with love, new changes, choices, new additions, heartbreak and struggle, and of course some steamy sheet time!! In this book, we get updates on all of our beloved couples, even some from other books that have ties to our couples, and we get a glimpse of a new hockey hottie that you'll be eager to know more about - let me tell you, that's going to be one epic story! Each of the books in this series focuses on one couple. They can be read a stand-alone books, but this one is different. You have to read the others before reading The First Intermission. If you haven't read books 1-5, you really should dive in right now!! You won't be sorry!! Then grab this one and find out where our loving couples are now, where they're heading, and what's on the horizons!! Great addition to the series!! Now, bring me Beckett!!
