Playmaker cover sml

Playmaker is an interesting romance, it’s almost more like a mystery than a love story.  Kaden and Delaney are already firmly in love at the beginning of the story, but Delaney has unexpectedly left – taken off without a word to Kaden, and he’s heartbroken.  What he doesn’t know if that Delaney on the run from some very powerful people, and she is concerned for his safety if she lets him in on her secret.  Fate brings them back together again, in the most beautiful setting, the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington State.    It takes nearly half the book before we learn what and who Delaney is running from.   Then the story changes into Delaney trying to decide whether to stay or run again, and Kaden trying to figure out how to get her to stay. While she’s terribly afraid,  Delaney ultimately makes her decision with the help of most of the Sockeyes team, knowing they will have her back. 

Playmaker is interesting and suspenseful, and there’s a slight twist I wasn’t expecting toward the end, right before the happily ever after, which added a little oomph to the story. 

Playmaker is an awesome distraction from real life, and a great addition to the Seattle Sockeyes Scoring series – but I have to admit, I’m going to be eagerly awaiting for Steele and Cin’s story coming up next!  So much mystery and tension with those two!
