Title: 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.

Hockey and romance score in On the Fly a character-driven romance by Katie Kenyhercz.
After her father’s passing, Jacey Vaughn inherits the Las Vegas Sinners, a NHL hockey team. Jacey has her work cut out for when she takes over the team because the Sinners are a new team in the league, they just lost their head coach, and the team captain, Carter Phylnn, is thinking of taking an offer with another team. Jacey makes a dramatic change to the Sinners’ leadership by hiring Nealy Windham, the NHL’s first woman head coach. While trying to get the team on financially solid ground, Jacey finds her feelings for Carter are a distraction she can’t afford. Jacey loves him but is afraid to trust him because she was burned in a previous relationship, and she knows an owner and a player should not be involved romantically with each other. I found it easy to empathize with Jacey’s struggles with work and the potential of a relationship with a player. Carter has it bad for Jacey, and he also understands the risks their relationship brings, but he won’t be denied. Carter wants to be worthy of Jacey’s love, which he demonstrates with his downright charming romantic gestures, making you cheer for him to help Jacey overcome her trust issues. The chemistry between Jacey and Carter is hot enough to melt ice, and their bedroom scenes are sensual and romantic.
Kenyhercz beautifully blends in hockey scenes that are a pleasure to read. Even if you aren’t a hockey fan, you will be able to follow along with ease. With an engaging couple and action-packed hockey scenes, On the Fly delivers an enthralling story right up to the edge-of-your-seat climax and stunning romantic conclusion that leave you smiling.
