Publisher's Summary

This is her shot. 

Brit has the chance to make history by being the first female goalie to play for an NHL team, the San Francisco Gold. So, when she is introduced to Stefan, the Gold's captain, she is determinedly not interested. 

Stefan is sexy, charming, and has a publicly documented list of conquests a mile long. But Brit is unwilling to risk mixing business with pleasure, even when that business is wrapped up in a six-foot-plus, gorgeously muscled package. When management pushes Brit and Stefan together in an effort to gain good press for the beleaguered team, Brit finds that her carefully calculated disinterest doesn’t mask her body's desires. The more she falls for Stefan, the more she risks her career. 

Will she be able to have it all - a starting position and the heart of the captain? Or will she lose everything?

Blocked deserves a perfect 10.

Blocked deserves a perfect 10. Faber breaks down barriers with a great story. Brit is more than window dressing. She's all heart. Behind her tough exterior, beats the heart of a battered soul. Her demons run deep, but so does her determination. Despite life's hard knocks she finds the courage to follow her dreams and maybe, just maybe open her heart to more than the game she's dedicated her life to. Through Blocked isn't the average romance read, it definitely leaves it's mark on the heart. Faber, Salinas, Laurel and Co. make it easy to cheer for the underdog.

5/5

Blocked is the first book in the Gold Hockey series. I read book two a while ago and, while I didn't need to have read Blocked first it's nice to read Brit and Stefan's book. The more I read of Elise Faber the more I like her work. I also really like hockey romance. I loved both Brit and Stefan and look forward to seeing more of their HEA when I read the more of this series. Sweet, funny, smart and emotional, Brit deals with being the first female in the NHL, corrupted management and press. Falling for Stefan, her team captain, isn't something she set out to do but management has other plans for them. I liked how Elise Faber dealt with trauma and hard emotions. Stefan and Brit are both strong and soft and are so great with each other.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Cute but Surprising Twist

Cute love story between a all out Hockey Girl and Team Captain! They meet, fall, she protects him and other teammates, while he fixes her broken head! Has a very cute and surprising twist! Narration was spot on with each parts and kept it feeling right!

Great hockey romance story

This was my first book by Elise Faber and my first sports romance.

I loved the chemistry between Brit and Stefan. Hockey is one of my favorite sports and this storyline with Brit being the first NHL goalie and her struggles is great. There were twist and turns and hot sex which always makes for an awesome read.

I look forward to reading/listening to the rest of the series.

Lacy and Gregory's performance was great. I love when there are both male and female narrators.

Minor League Hockey Romance

I love stories like this one, where we have a strong female character overcoming the struggles of being in a male dominated industry or sport. Brit is an up and coming female hockey player that has been given a chance to play on a minor league hockey team. Of course, there is a great blend of romance in this story, and I loved how our main characters come together even though it was seemingly in a semi coerced manner. Both Stefan and Brit are strong characters and are a well matched pair.

Both of our narrators play their respective character points of view well. They were both able to capture the strong nature of both Stefan and Brit and I thoroughly enjoyed their performance!

Blocked

Britt is the first female goalie for the NHL. Stefan is the team captain. The chemistry they fight is off the charts. When they give in it is explosive.

Hockey Romance

I'm glad I found Elise Faber. I've really enjoyed her audiobooks. Her stories are well written with great storylines. This was a different hockey storyline for me since the heroine, Brit, is a female hockey player. You don't see that often in romance books. Stefan was a man to fall for even when it's the last thing one wants. They both pulled at my heart. I really enjoyed the characters and look forward to more in this series.

Gregory Salinas and Lacy Laurel are both excellent narrators. Their performances were well done. The book ran smoothly through my head.
