Penalty Play (Power Play, #3) by Lynda Aicher



Reviewed by Tabatha


So the third book in the Power Play series finally hit the mark for me. Admittedly, I was really disappointed in the heroines in the first two books, but this one was much better. Jacqui still had her hangups and liked to run away when things got serious, but I could understand her rational which made it that much easier for me to like her. She was a remarkable character with such strength despite her very real fears that made her react out of preservation for others far too quickly. I loved her family, and that she gave Henrik a family he so deserved with them.  Her brothers were an absolute riot, and I kind of wish we could get their stories, too. :)

Henrik, on the other hand, was quite a surprise to me on every level. I should have known better given how he acted in the previous book that he had hidden depths to him, but yet I was still surprised. He was a passionate man with an unbelievable capacity to love. He was also underestimated from everyone around him that thought they knew the real him.  I think the only thing that hung me up was when he was in Boston, because I just didn't feel like that reveal was a driving force for him to do what he did at the end. I would have understood him doing it for himself and not having this push from an outside force in the story.

This story was emotional, and I really enjoyed it through some tears both happy and sad.  Now I'm curious to see if Aicher plans to do anymore books for this series, because I think I'd enjoy getting books for some of the other guys on the team. Definitely check out this book guys, because I think you are going to really enjoy it.
