The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of Power Play (Pilots Hockey, #2) . . .
I am not real sure where to begin. I found a few of the scenes to be a bit too much for me. There are things that made my skin crawl and my brain need a scrub. There are other things that gave me the oh that is sweet. Regardless of these facts I was feeling something. 

I did find the pacing a bit slow and some interaction between Gabriella and Landon to be flat. Landon was a man. Just to put it in simple terms. He knew what he wanted and who he wanted and went for it. Gabriella seem to have the wishy-washy way of life. I  could not connect with her and wanted better for Landon. 

I found there was possibility within and hopes to be a bit too high, but that has not deterred me from wanting another look at future work from Sophia Henry.

Blurb
In Sophia Henry's blistering follow-up to Delayed Penalty, hailed as “sexy, fun, and full of angst” by L. P. Dover, a good girl and a hockey hunk face off against expectations—and this match is guaranteed to see plenty of action.

Beneath her innocent facade, Gabriella Bertucci has her reasons to be standoffish with guys. Especially guys like Landon Taylor, a star defenseman on the minor-league Detroit Pilots and the object of a serious crush since he first walked into her family's market. But when Landon comes through for her in a moment of crisis, Gaby starts to wonder if there might be more to Landon than hard muscles and fast skates.

Landon isn't afraid of telling Gaby that he's got it for her bad. The problem is, she seems unwilling to believe it. And though Landon enjoys his reputation as a cool-headed athlete, he hates losing—both on the rink and off. It's his competitiveness that makes him so damn good at what he does . . . but it also makes him just a little bit complicated.

One minute Gaby's tempted to give in; the next, she's getting cold feet. How can she trust a guy who's destined for bigger and better things to stick around? Then again, when Landon pulls her close with those powerful arms, the only thing that matters is right now.
