Review: Scoring His Heart (Texas Highlanders Ice Hockey) by Suzan Butler

Zoe Logan has always believed that those she loves will always leave her. It's why she fights so hard against anyone getting close, but when sexy defense Gavin Ferrara zeroes in on her, she finds herself falling hard and exploring the hidden parts of herself that he brings out in her.

Gavin’s always trusted that playing hockey is the most important thing to him. But when a strange encounter from months ago leads to more between him and the local bar owner’s daughter, he’s torn between what he wants and what’s best.

WARNING: This book contains a threesome hot enough to scorch the sheets, a dirty talking Russian, a bisexual Italian, the college virgin who brings both of them to their knees, and the best anatomy and physiology study session ever.

When I sat down to write a review on this I kept thinking how do I feel about this?  I have mixed feelings about the book.  Although it is listed as a hockey book, there is really no mention of it besides a couple of games, practice, and going on the road playing for a professional hockey team.  There is really no interaction with the guys from the team.

When Zoe first walks in on her friend, Misha making out with her crush, Gavin, she’s shocked, hurt, and sad.  Gavin has been on her radar for a long time and to find out he likes Misha, is a huge blow.  Why didn’t Misha tell her Gavin was his and she could never have him?? The passion they displayed for each other-she could only hope someone would look at her that way. She doesn’t know what to do so she bolts. Talk about uncomfortable.  The three don’t know how to address the situation so they choose to avoid each other like the plague for months.

Zoe is naïve, but very smart.  At only 19, she is in her 3rd year of college with plans to go to medical school.  Her mother left her at a young age and dad has been her only rock. She has no real friends except for Misha. Because of her mom leaving them, she has a tendency to run whenever things get too tough to handle.

Gavin is bi-sexual.  He never really looked at Zoe prior to this encounter and I was surprised by his quick feelings toward her.  I felt that was a bit too sudden given he was just with Misha.  This was confusing to me.  He never had really talked to her or even dated her prior to her seeing the guys together. Seems he just changed gears and he was off to hunt after Zoe.  He does seem like a great guy and later how he gets Zoe to believe what he was saying he really meant was nice and sweet.

The sex scenes were hot! For Zoe being so innocent and naïve, she was a lot more skilled than I would have expected.  Gavin even makes mention of it!  I really liked Misha and want to hear more about him in the future. I think he is done with his playboy ways and wants to have a family. Overall, there was a lot of love chaos here.  Zoe being the only one not bi-sexual, it jumped back and forth with the guys together, then with girls, and threesomes.   It took some time for them to figure it out yet alone me.  I did enjoy reading it because it flowed quickly. It was well-written so it drove me to continue to read and see where they all end up.

Scoring His Heart is book three in the Texas Highlanders Ice Hockey series by Suzan Butler.  Although I have not read the books in the series prior to this one, it was easily read as a standalone book.  I will, however, check out the other books in the series, and look forward to new ones!
