Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Trouble With #9 by Piper Rayne

Release Date: August 10

One word that comes to mind when someone talks about me. I like to think of it as protection, watching out for the ones I love. But now I’m spending more time in the penalty box than on the ice and the team owner isn’t happy.


Finding myself across the room from the hot therapist I kissed on New Year’s Eve only makes me push my problems down further. I want couch time with her but not the kind she’s used to.


I decide to lie to her just to finish off my therapy so I can do what I really want—date her—even if she says she doesn’t date hockey players. Just when my therapy sessions are up and I’ve made some headway with Paisley, it’s my parents who throw another wrench in my plans. 


If I abide by my parent’s wishes to marry the one they’ve chosen, I’ll lose Paisley forever. But if I go against my parents, I’m failing my deceased best friend all over again.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Moving right along with Piper Rayne’s Hockey Hotties series! This time around we have strong, stoic Maksim, and his forbidden romance with team psychologist Paisley.

As the story continues from My Lucky #13, all of the players on the Florida Fury have to meet with Paisley per the team owner’s insistence, to get their minds into mental shape. But Maksim is insisting that he’s just fine, and is more interested in dating Paisley than sitting down on her couch.

So I admittedly wasn’t sure how this story was going to go with the doctor/patient aspect to it and the ethics involved with Paisley dating Maksim. That component of the story is dealt with easily enough, however, and the real obstacles for these two to overcome are Paisley’s insecurities of just being the plain girl who is not enough for the hockey god, his constant “tests” that he puts her through as a result of his own insecurities, and his overwhelming need to be the protector of all those around him.

I really liked how Paisley and Mak’s story unfolded. It had a natural flow to it, he was super charming and sweet when trying to woo her with his 9 original date ideas, and the issues that came up between them happened organically. Plus, there are lots of steamy moments between these two!

Again, Piper Rayne takes us on an entertaining ride as these characters fall in love — and sets the stage for a great story coming up next with Ford!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
