Anton by Brenda Rothert

Chicago Blaze, #1

Book Blurb:

He’s known as Father Anton to his teammates—the brooding, sexy captain of the NHL’s Chicago Blaze has a reputation for…not having a reputation. Just like his diet and sleep routines, celibacy is part of Anton Petrov’s on-ice mojo. Or so they say. Anton stays mum on the subject. If the world thinks he chooses to abstain from sex, so be it. Better that than the truth getting out: there is a woman he burns for, but he can never have her. She’s his teammate’s wife, after all.

Mia Marceau is finally on her own. Now that she and her husband are living apart, she’s finding the peace she was desperate for. She spends her days in classes and late nights bartending, making her own way in the world at last. After what she’s been through, as long as her husband leaves her alone, she doesn’t plan to rock the boat. He still has the power to hurt those dearest to her, and she can’t demand a divorce with such a high cost.

A chance encounter with Mia has Anton hoping for a shot he never thought he’d get. And while she’s drawn to the intense, serious hockey center, Mia’s leery about playing with fire. That’s all Anton has ever known for Mia, though—a living, burning desire that won’t be denied—no matter the cost.

❤️ My Review

What do you get when you mix a beautiful bartender, a swoon-worthy hockey god and a big ole ass? A terrific start to a new sports series by a wonderful author. Mia is down but not out when her nasty soon-to-be-ex husband does a number on her both emotionally and financially. What a creep! And guess who his hockey team captain is? Yep, the hockey god and man to good to be true, Anton. The sexy Russian has crushed on Mia for years but he won’t go there. One, she’s married and two, the hockey bro code. That’s sucks especially since he’s on a celibacy binge that evidently only Mia can end. But he can be the friend she so desperately needs, if she will let him. These characters are fabulous. Mia is a marvel of strength and perseverance while her husband does his best to keep her down. She deserves someone good in her life just like Anton. He’s wonderful and principled and protective and hot! And he has a twin! Although Alexei is nothing like Anton I can’t wait for the slut puppy’s story. There’s so much depth and emotion to this story along with the heartbreaking and uplifting parts that will keep you turning the pages. This is a fantastic slow-burn romance with a sweet, sexy couple. Simply marvelous!
