PUCK DRILLS & QUICK THRILLS
CU Hockey – Book Five
by Eden Finley & Saxon James
I loved this book, the final in the series. I read this series out of order, with book 3 Goal Lines & First Times being the first book I read and also where we first meet Westly the main character in this book. Westly had a promising future in the NHL until his parents died and he had to give up his dream to look after his younger siblings and became a coach at CU. His brother Asher is now the one working towards a promising NHL career and he is struggling with maths, Westly steps in to talk to his professor, Jasper, and they get off to a very rocky start. Jasper is known as a grumpy hardass professor and doesn’t like jocks at all, so having a hockey coach come in to ask for what he considers special treatment for a hotshot hockey player causes them to both bump heads.
After their initial meeting, they find they have some serious chemistry and when Westly becomes Jasper’s fake boyfriend for a school reunion, one thing leads to another, but with Westly’s crazy home life and Jasper’s dislike of jocks and love, there doesn’t seem to be a way to have more than some quick thrills.
These two came together so easily, they were just great together and I really enjoyed their friendship and developing relationship, something that happened without either of them realising it was happening. I loved the support they gave each other and I loved that this was a low angst read.
I recommend you read them in order for maximum storyline cohesion, but they do work well out of order if that’s how you roll.

The fall from NHL superstar to domestic disaster was swift and painful. When I became the legal guardian of my five younger siblings, I had no idea what I was doing.
One year later, I’m still lost.
Coaching CU’s hockey team might be the only thing I’m excelling at. But when our star forward is failing math, I have to do what it takes to keep him on the team. Even if it’s going head-to-head with Jasper Eckstein.
One minute I’m confronting the notorious hockey-hating professor, and the next I’m agreeing to be his date to his twenty-year high school reunion.
I don’t know how that happened.
My rules are simple. I don’t give extra credit. Ever. No matter how entitled jocks think they are, I refuse to give them special treatment.
It’s not because I hate them. It’s not because a hockey player broke my nose in high school.
But when Westly Dalton bursts into my office like a hurricane, all my principles fly out the window.
Suddenly I’m giving extra credit.
And I have a date to my reunion.
After one explosive night together, I want more, but his home life is a mess, and I don’t want to get in the way. If all we can have is quick thrills, I’m okay with that.
It’s not like I could ever fall for a jock.
