Dirty Rebound

Book 3 in the Slayers Hockey Series

I care too much about Cammy Wesley to marry her…

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. But hear me out.

Cammy’s my best friend. The one person I can’t live without. The girl with the sunshine smile, the loaded fridge, and the most awesome kid I’ve ever met. She’s also the hot AF single mom I’ve made it my mission to protect from guys like me. I won’t risk ruining our friendship by pushing for something more.

I can’t be her forever.

I’m not that guy. I’m the good time. The class clown. The hockey stud. I’m the happy for now, not the happily ever after.

I stay in my lane, but when Cammy’s ex needs a lesson, the rash overprotective part of me jumps the boards and I go from best friend to fake boyfriend in the span of a kiss. And that’s just the beginning. Because when it comes to Cammy, there’s nothing I won’t do for her.

Even if it’s guaranteed to wreck me.


Steamy Romance Fun

Dirty Rebound by Mira Lyn Kelly is the third book in her Slayers Hockey Series, and features Rux, assistant captain on the fictional NHL Slayers team, and his best friend (and also his other best friends sister-in-law), Cammy, a devoted single mom to her seven year old son. When a guy dumps her and gives her a blow to her confidence, a surprise kiss to show up her ex between the two best friends take them both down a road neither of them expected.

So, taking a small break from the fantasy/romance genre for a hot minute, I decided to get caught up with Mira Lyn Kelly's Slayers series, and it didn't disappoint. If there is one thing I can count on from this series, is it will make me smile. Whether its the hilarious banter between teammates, and one liners, or the happily ever after romance, this series will lift me out of a funk, and Dirty Rebound did just that. It's fun! While the plot itself is as old as time (best friends turn friends with benefits turn lovers, throw in a misunderstanding or two, and self-doubt), but Mira Lyn Kelly does a good job injecting the plot with a level of sweetness and humor that makes you forget about that. And the steam level? Yup, Mira Lyn Kelly can write sex, and write it good.

Unoriginal plot aside, Mira Lyn Kelly's strength is her skills at writing characters you will like. You can't help but admire Cammy, a young, single mom to a seven year old boy, who makes sure he comes first and a stable childhood, unlike herself. She puts her feelings aside when his father moves back and wants to be in his life, she pays attention to him, and even has a job where she can work from home so she can be with him as much as she can, while still supporting them. She is a total sweetheart, and I really enjoyed her. Then Rux. What a teddy bear. Well, all the Slayers guys are just big, muscled teddy bears, who know how to treat a woman right. I loved his devotion to Cammy and her son, to making them happy. Honestly, the only thing that drove me nuts about his character is that (spoiler)-----------> he didn't actually realize his feelings till the end. The enti
