One accident – a freaking car crash. That’s all it took to send my life into a tailspin.
Little did I know that out of the wreckage, everything would fall into place. I would get everything I had ever worked for.

Little did I know that I would find the woman who would cross check my life, flipping everything upside down.

Even though she’s melting the ice that surrounds my heart, I’m still waiting for the other shoe to drop. Will I ever be able to find my footing or am I destined to stay pinned against the boards?

Note: Cross Checked is the second book in the Shots On Goal Series. It can be read as a standalone, has a happily ever after, and does not have a cliffhanger. There are character crossovers from Hat Trick (book one in the series) which is also a standalone with a HEA and no cliffhanger.


My Review – 3 Stars

READ HAT TRICK FIRST! I can’t imagine making it through this book without having read it. Overall, I enjoyed Brayden and Karla’s story. It was nice reading about their journey after seeing pieces of it in Hat Trick. However, it all felt a little disconnected. I think it was easier for me to read knowing what happened in book 1. But it still left me wanting more. I felt like the author glanced over things and rushed through Brayden and Karla’s journey to get to the end. I just really wanted more. I would have liked to see them dive more into their backgrounds. We get a small glimpse of Karla’s past when she has her nightmare, but that’s it. And if it weren’t for Hat Trick and the nurse’s summarization at the beginning, we wouldn’t know anything about Brayden’s history. I also wanted more of a resolution of Karla’s trouble with James. I was a bit stunned by how their breakup went down. It didn’t seem very realistic after she and James had been together for so long. And James was super sweet for the little we were showed of him at the start. I was also hoping for more interaction with the team and their friends and family.

About the Author

I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time “day job” and by night I am an author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.

Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I’d like or just to shoot the, well you know.

A portion of all my royalties are donated to The Marcie Mazzola Foundation.
