Back in Play (Power Play #2) by Lynda Aicher



Reviewed by Tabatha


I had high hopes for this book, because Scott is the captain of the Glaciers and he was a great character in the previous book. Unfortunately, Back in Play is going to be hard for me to review because while I loved Scott, I really did not like Rachel.

These two start off in such a cute way meeting at a wedding. Rachel is in town visiting her brother, and I liked that she was upfront with Scott about how long she was going to be there. While Scott has every reason not to communicate with Rachel given his issues, it is actually Rachel who isn't honest and upfront with him and I'm not going to lie when I say that it bothered me. She was very supportive of him at first, but when push came to shove she took the cowards way out and instead said something so hurtful to Scott that I almost didn't finish the book. I seriously was shocked, and not in a good way at all. I know that we all make mistakes in what we say in the heat of the moment, but it absolutely gutted me on Scott's behalf. Bad form Rachel. And Scott, you were far too quick to forgive her in my honest opinion.

Anyway, so that stuff aside I liked the way the story progressed and how Scott handled himself. He had a huge struggle with something he never realized was a problem, and I think he was admirable in the way he stepped up. I think this is a little ventured topic with sports romance books, so I love that Aicher gave someone as strong as Scott this struggle. I'm eager to continue on reading about the other Glaciers team members, so I'm going to dive right into the next book as soon as I can.

*I received a review copy from the publisher/author via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.*
