by Mira Lyn Kelly
Book 7 in the Slayers Hockey Series
Yeah, she's my buddy's little sister and every kind of off limits.
She's frustrating, infuriating, chaos in motion.
And she's my new roommate.
There's no defense against this girl.
Before I begin, I would like to thank Mira Lyn Kelly and her team for sending me an arc of Dirty D-Man in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Oh man. This was so good!
Overprotective brother's best friend?
Best friend's little sister?
Forced proximity with simmering sexual tension?
Yes, yes and yesssssss!
I was a little worried, because I didn't love the last Slayers book, but Dirty D-Man was like a much needed goal in the last 10 seconds in the third period. It was entertaining. Sexy. Fun. I loved Bowie and Piper's chemistry and banter. I felt a genuine connection, and I didn't feel like the complications between them were unrealistic or forced. I genuinely liked both characters by themselves, and together - especially together.
While not explicitly said in the book, I also get some vibes that Piper is demisexual. I won't put any spoilers out there to explain why, but there are characteristics there that make me think she is. I gotta say, I love that Mira Lyn Kelly has added some diversity into this series, with Bowie being black. I feel hockey romances in general lack diversity, so when I come across a non-caucasian character in a hockey romance, I take notice, and appreciate it.
I was a little nervous going into this book, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Bowie and Piper were hot, hot, HOT, and there were just enough hints dropped for the next book in the series that has me excited for that one too! Dirty D-Man releases today!
