Shut Out (Bayard Hockey #1) by Kelly Jamieson

My Rating: 4 Stars

Series: Bayard Hockey #1

Sex Scenes: Yes.

Subject: College experience and how your life can change in a second. 

The Bayard College hockey team isn’t where Jacob Flass thought he’d be a season ago. He was a rising star in the Canadian major junior league, cruising toward a spot on an NHL roster—until a single disastrous night on the town brought it all crashing down. Now he’s out of options, except for playing well, studying hard, and staying away from girls. He’s not supposed to be flirting with the hottest, sweetest chick he’s ever met. But how could he possibly stay away?

Skylar Lynwood knows that Jacob is out of her league. She’s just trying to go with the flow, which isn’t easy when six feet and four inches of total hockey hunkiness is making a play for her one moment, then giving her the cold shoulder the next. Skylar’s head tells her that this rugged athlete isn’t worth her time, but her body says something altogether different. Risking her heart for Jacob may be the craziest thing she’s ever done . . . but she won’t let him shut her out.

My Review
I got this book for an honest review on netgalley and it was lovely.

Jacob the super-hot hockey player starts over on Bayard College and his mind is set on getting back to the top so he can redeem himself.
He was an amazing character, sweet and funny, I loved him from the start.

Skylar is perfect too, and when they met they just made sense. 

Reading about their “arrangement” was hard, it was obvious they were going to fail, they were perfect for each other, and the chemistry was just crazy good.

The intimate scenes they share are steamy hot! Their connection was really intense and you can’t help but feel drawn to them.

But they both had demons that they kept hidden from each other and everyone else, and we know how that works, they eventually come out and ruin everything.

Trusting each other might be harder than they thought it would be, but in the end it will save them or ruin them.

Overall the book had a great storyline and lots of deep traumatic subjects that affect a lot of college woman and men, and I think that the message of the book was really good and inspiring. 

Jacob learned a lot and grew as a person with Skylar’s help and she was strong enough to face her fears and in securities, having his support changed everything for her.
