Reviews of On the Fly and Full Strength by Katie Kenyhercz

On the Fly

On the Fly 


Jacey Vaughn has a newly minted MBA when her father dies unexpectedly and leaves her his NHL team. Well-versed in business but not so much in hockey, Jacey navigates this new world with a few stumbles. She definitely doesn’t plan on falling for the team captain. At the first hint of scandal, a local Las Vegas reporter latches on, and Jacey finds herself in the newspaper with headlines that hurt instead of help. Jacey’s determined to keep her father’s legacy alive and make the team successful, but while she has no problem denying her feelings to the media, she can’t lie to herself.

Carter Phlynn has known nothing but hockey his entire life. Drafted into the NHL at age eighteen, winning the Stanley Cup is all he’s ever wanted. Nothing has ever disrupted his focus. Not until he meets his new boss. Jacey gets under his skin like no one else, and while dating the team owner would be a disaster for his career and reputation, he can’t get her out of his head. Carter has never had a relationship last more than a month, but the more he’s around Jacey, the more he can’t picture his future without her.

Review by Tabitha:

Hunky hockey players coupled with a strong and independent female lead....ummmmmm.....yes please!!! Carter aka Phlynn and Jacey are really, really great characters. Both characters are great and the story is very well written along with a good flow. This is definitely a sweet and light read. I admire that the author took on writing about a sport that isn't out there as much as others. I think that definitely worked in her advantage. As I said, the book is very well written and the dialogue is written great. I am looking forward to reading about more of these very yummy hockey players. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because I personally wish there was a little more to the ending. Maybe like an epilogue or something. It just felt like boom here we are and then it was over. I know that may not make a ton of sense, but I don't want to give anything away. I would definitely recommend this book to others, because there was only a small thing that I didn't like. Otherwise, it was a goal!! This is a 4.5 AMAZEBALLS stars for me!

Full Strength

Full Strength

After a bum knee ended her soccer days, Alexandra—Allie—Kallen has dedicated her life to helping injured athletes cope and get back in the game. As the new team sports psychologist of the Las Vegas Sinners, she starts out with just one player, but he’s a handful. Goalies are stubborn, and she would know. She’s determined to figure him out and return him to the net good as new, especially after she sent her last patient back to the ice too soon. The problem is, she sees so much of herself in Shane, and their chemistry is off the charts. Falling for him isn’t in the plan. Is love worth losing her career?

Shane Reese’s entire identity has been wrapped up in being a goalie since he was five years old. When he gets a high ankle sprain right before playoffs, he doesn’t exactly take it well. After putting his fist through the physical therapy room wall and hitting a few joking teammates, he’s ordered to see the new shrink. All he has to do is convince her he’s seen the light, and he can get back to defending his team as soon as his ankle heals. The problem is, she sees through him like no one he’s ever met, and the more time he spends with her, the less hot he is to get back to the ice. Could something mean more than hockey?

Review by Tabitha:
This is book two of the Las Vegas Sinners Hockey team series and I must say it was pretty good. I have to admit that Phlynn and Jacey's book is still my favorite, however I really like Shane aka Reese and Allie as well. They have another "forbidden" love because she works for the team and he is on the team. I really like the flow of the book and it is masterfully written. My only complaint is that I felt it was a little slow in places and I just wanted it to pick up the pace just a tad. I did enjoy that Phlynn and Jacey were in this book as well along with all the other previous hockey team guys. That one negative was more than made up for by the rest of the book and one I would still recommend to people to read especially if you love hockey. This one is a 4.25 AMAZEBALLS stars.

About the Author:
I've been writing since I was twelve! It started with X-Files fan fiction, branched into contemporary romance, and finally blossomed into hockey romance. A weird progression, I know. Everyone always said, "Write what you love." I'm a hopeless romantic who loves hockey, so there you go.

I have a BA in Professional Writing and Editing, a MA in English, and I'm one semester away from an MFA in the Writing of Popular Fiction. On the Fly is my thesis novel, and it's being published through Crimson Romance. It's the first book in the Las Vegas Sinners Series.

While hockey is my true love and the focus of my writing life at present, I'm also into urban fantasy and may experiment with that in the future.
