Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Trailblazer, by Gina Azzi

 Release Date: November 11

I always knew I’d marry my first everything, Declan Yaeger, the Southern boy with Irish roots. That was before he became my first heartbreak, a NHL superstar with a playboy reputation I no longer recognize.
The summer he left our small, Tennessee town, to pursue his hockey dream is the summer my life changed. That was seven years ago, before he became a defenseman for the Boston Hawks. Before I became fixated on my career, losing pieces of myself along the way.
To protect my grandfather’s legacy, I agree to marry my oldest childhood friend, Henry. But when I enter the Church on my wedding day, the grey eyes piercing mine aren’t my fiancé’s.
They’re Declan’s, the last person I expect to show up with an offer of his own. One I can’t refuse even though my heart should know better than to accept.
Will my marriage to Declan heal the broken between us? Or are we destined to repeat the mistakes of our past?

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

This is a fantastic second chance romance! Vivi and Declan’s stories ticked off all the right boxes for me when it comes to swoon, heat and heart. On top of that, Vivi and Declan’s second chance at love really takes some effort on both their parts to work through the issues that led to their split in the first place.

There are a lot of raw emotions and a lot of hurt between them, but Vivi and Declan’s relationship really grows stronger after it all gets hashed out, and I loved seeing these two fall in love with one another all over again!

Trailblazer is part of Gina Azzi’s hockey series, but it stands alone as an entertaining, page-turning romance.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
