Read Hip Check (New York Blades #10) Online Free - Esa Saari is a hockey player for the New York Blades with a bad-boy rep both on and off the ice. But when he suddenly becomes the guardian of his eight-year-old niece, Nell, he knows his excessive lifestyle is about to get body checked.
So he hires a live-in nanny. Her name is Michelle Beck, and she gets along great with Nell. What surprises him, though, is that he instantly hits it off with her, too. Getting romantically involved would be a bad idea, but he’s finding it impossible to ignore the intense connection between them.

“What kind of a twit walks around with nothing but five hundred dollars in cash, house keys, and a Finnish drivers license?”
Ever read a book where the dialogue is great, the humor is popping and the secondary characters are enjoyable but the lead characters have zero chemistry?
And said secondar...

I love sports romance books more than anything else. They are my all-time favorite trope, and I am constantly on the lookout for new books within the genre. I had yet to try out Martin, so when I recieved this book in the mail...

5 stars because I love DM. I love that she went back to USA (after the Irish period). I love sport stories. I love little girls.
So this story is like a Harlequin. A nanny for an orphan girl, sent to her uncle, who doesn't know what to do. But he's a NY Blade, she's a great nanny, very sweet with...

I've liked her other books but this one was awful. To set up your main character with all these ethics about work relationships, only to have her fall into bed with her employer is strange to say the least. Also, the themes of loss, grief, contained emotion are pretty simply resolved. Yes, I know...

I liked the way Martin wrote about Esa's journey as a playboy who finds himself guardian to his eight year old niece, Nell. The interactions between the the secondary characters and the main characters were often fun and interesting.

Oh DNFs, how I hate you. I really dislike giving books DNF ratings but this was one of those where I could not stick it out for another 40%. Why you ask? Why could I not finish this book when it has all the makings of a book I'd love? We...

HIP CHECK was my second read by this author and I’m glad I gave it a try. I was drawn to the series because I was looking for another sport romance to get into and the last book in this series, which was the first I read, didn’t quite get me excited. Mayb...
