Description

He (was) the hottest player on the ice.

She's a (struggling) sports journalist looking for her big break.

Charlie Denton has been handed the most impossible assignment from her stick-in-the-mud boss: get an exclusive interview with the NHL's golden boy, Duke Harrison.

The catch? She's got eight days or she'll be demoted. Fired. Kicked to the curb - no way is she letting her future rest on the broad shoulders of a goalie who is at least three seasons past his prime.

She has eight days to convince Duke that the loyal fans of the Cambridge Tribune (annual circulation: 1,000) are dying to know about his life, on and off the ice. Eight days to stand toe-to-toe with a man who is pure sex on a stick. Eight days to remember that every mind-blowing kiss is nothing but a power play.

What could go wrong?

Contains mature themes.

goalies dont goto the penalty box... enough said.

okay, author... i hope you read this because i went from being alright with some small inaccuracies for the benefit of the storyline to hoping you are never published again. You cant write that the goalie is placed in the box ever, because a goalie CANT goto the damn box! think about that even... its illogical to say a team plays without their goalie as a powerplay! do atleast a bit of research or watch a hockey game if you plan to write about it, your lack of any simple knowledge of hockey is sickening.... and i hope you realize how ridiculous and humiliated you should feel as the 'author' of such a lack of any commitment to your job... let alone what is supposed to be YOUR art... figure it out! good enough storyline plots thin-ish, if you want a brainless resonance with done reference to sports and don't care about impossibility in your romance, its not bad, but the authors lack of intellect or research makes the mc's worse the furtger you get into it.
story- goodish, narrator- great, author- needs to be black-balled or never given the ability to write again.

Short and sweet

This is a first for me by this author and I liked it. It’s short and sweet no harsh angst or anything.

Sweet, funny, short

First things first: I listened to the audiobook of Power Play and don't have any complaints. Elizabeth Hart is doing a decent job narrating Charlie. We get an epilogue read by Joe Hempel, which I wouldn't have minded hearing more of during the book.

Charlie is a former hockey player who turned to sports journalism because she never was an exceptional talent. She is ambitious as they come and that is one of her strengths but also her weakness. Charlie was cute, a bit sassy and definitely likable.
When she meets Blades goalie Duke Harrison she insults him. Although Duke is actually more of a brooder he is a good sport sport about it and they hit it off pretty fast.

Since this is a novella you can't expect much in terms of character development. The chemistry between Duke and Charlie needs to be pretty much instantaneous for that reason. Admittedly, the story is predictable and you can see the conflict coming from miles away but that didn't negatively influence my enjoyment.

Power Play is a bite-sized sexy little number that is perfect after finishing a heavy, angst-filled book. It does lack the depth of a full length novel but Maria Luis's funny writing style in this sweet rom-com will put a smile on your face.

Knowledge of a sport is recommended if you plan on including said sport in the story

I would recommend better beta readers who know the sport of hockey, goalies do not serve their own penalties. This story is full of plot holes and timeline confusion. Overall it was ok when you get past these issues
