Blog Tour #review: Killian by Brenda Rothert

KILLIAN (On the Line, #1)

for .99¢ for a limited time!


Killian Bosch knows he’s his own worst enemy – he just doesn’t give a damn. The star forward of a minor league hockey team, he’s unstoppable on the ice. His reckless behavior, devil-may-care attitude and complete disregard for consequences have made him a major source of headaches for the Fenway Flyers’ brass.

But the new Flyers owner is more steel than brass. Sidney Stahl is a disciplined woman who parlayed earnings from a college job into a real estate empire. She’s determined to transform the Flyers from marketing nightmare to hockey powerhouse. Once she gets Killian in line, she knows the rest of the team will follow his lead.

The seduction of his sexy new team owner is a challenge too forbidden for Killian to resist. Sidney plays into his attraction as a means of controlling him, but soon finds that she’s the one surrendering. It’s all on the line as Killian and Sidney are forced to choose - business or pleasure?



Killian Bosh is a brilliant hockey player, his plays are sharp, and he has the respect of his new coach and teammates. Although he has the ability to play with the best of them, he keeps sabotaging himself. His attitude and his ability to get in trouble, from bar fights to bad publicity due to the company he keeps, are his worst enemies. But not even Killian's love and devotion of the game can dig out his team, The Flyers, from the hole they're in.

Sidney Stahl is a savy and intelligent business woman, who just recently bought the Flyers and who's mission is to make them a winning team. Her first order of business being getting rid of the players that are not working out and change the attitudes of the trouble makers.
When Sidney and Killian meet they can't deny the chemistry between them, it's sizzling and palpable, and even though they know nothing can happen between them because of their boss/employee relationship, they can't hide the attraction they feel for each other.

Unknowingly they both become what the other needs. Sidney is the force Killian needs to change his attitude around and strive for bigger and better when it comes to his career, while Killian is the unconditional support system Sidney so much needs.

I just love Brenda's style of writing, her ability to take the reader into the character's story. You have a pretty strong alpha male, but you also have a kick ass leading lady who doesn't let anyone put her down or push her around. These two are two forces to be reckoned with.
There is some angst throughout the book, but mostly these are two mature characters in a journey of self discovering. I also have to mention that Brenda wrote in this book one of the most sensual scenes I've ever read. It's beautiful, it's powerful, and it will take your breath away.
Go ahead and give Killian a chance, I promise he will not disappoint. I can't wait for the next books in this series!!!

Add Bennett to Goodreads:


Bennett Morse devotes his time to chasing two things: an NHL career and women. He’s the easygoing member of his three-man line on the Fenway Flyers, content to play the game he loves and soak up the female attention it brings – as long as it’s from a different woman each time. He learned the hard way that choosing only one leads to heartache.

Newly single attorney Charlotte Holloway finds just what she needs in Bennett – a sweet, sexy man to ease the burn of her recent breakup. One night is all she wants from the left winger who seems to have all the right moves. Soon circumstance draws her back to Bennett, and the sparks between them become a fiery blaze. But with the stakes high, will they risk it all and put their hearts on the line?
