He'll do whatever it takes to win—on and off the ice.

Luc Richard is the hottest player in the NHL—and it has nothing to do with hockey. His racy relationship with his supermodel ex set the tabloids on fire but nearly put his career on ice. To avoid being traded, Luc agrees to take a break from the spotlight—and from women—and spend the off-season at home in Silver Bay, Maine. It's the perfect plan... until he reconnects with Rose.

Rose Caplan is tired of being shy, sweet, and safe. She's ready for passion, romance—and Luc. Having loved him longer than she can remember, she's finally ready to prove she's not the same innocent little girl he once knew. Off the ice Luc doesn't do games, but this new Rose makes him feel like playing a little dirty. If he's really got a shot at her heart then he's not just playing to win. He's playing for keeps.

Alexis says…

So, I am still a bit in lust over the first book in the series Make a Shot, but dear Lord, Victoria seriously stepped up her game with Making a Play.  I knew that Luc and Rosie’s story was going to be great…but I wasn’t expecting it to be this fabulous.

Luc is dubbed as the “French Disaster”. He is not related to the Garrison brothers by blood by might as well be. He lived with them for years and the Caplan girls are just as important to him, especially Rose.  After breaking up with his model girlfriend, he’s back home for the off-season to work on his game and also his image.  Rosie is still pining away for her one true-love, Luc and hopes this time back home will finally be the right time for him to realize she’s more than just a friend.

Luc knows that Rose has feelings for him but he just doesn’t realize that he also has those feelings for her.  I swear there were points where I wanted to scream at the two of them to just get their sh*t together and just get a room.

When feelings FINALLY come out…the book hits its stride and at times made me swoon, tear-up and also want to throw my Kindle. There is one scene in the book that made me literally want to almost internally combust and there wasn’t that much going on. That is a true testament as to how much sexual tension these two had going on.

“I feel you’re my compass, Fleur. You guide me to be a better man.”

I was so mad at Luc for a portion of the book and trust me you will be too. I am not so sure I would’ve done what Rose did. But you just can feel throughout the book that these are two are meant for each other. There are a lot of bumps and turns in the road for these two but the journey is totally worth it for the reader.

Now that I’ve binge-read the first two books in this series I need to wait until December for the third book. I’m not a patient person but I know the wait will be completely worth it! Rose and Luc will melt your heart and give you one hell of a passionate love story.
