Max Ashford thought he made it. He is living his dream and is playing in the National Hockey League. In an instant, his dream is over. A hit from defense man Misha Samarin ends his career playing hockey. Fast forward five years and they meet as the new coaching staff for the Spartanburg Spitfires. The worst team in the league. Can the guys work together? Can they make the team a winner? And if Max has forgiven Misha for the hit, can he get Misha to forgive himself?
Power Play is a lovely, enjoyable story about guys who should have been enemies, but went beyond coworkers and friends to lovers. The author writes a great look into the world of minor league hockey and the relationships that form within a team. As a hockey mom, I know better than most how real this book is written. The practices, the games, the nonsense in the locker room. All of it is very real. The cast of characters that make up the roster of players adds so much to this book. This book is part of a series, but each book can be read as a standalone.
