Secrets. Sometimes keeping them in confidence is a good thing. Other times secrets can slowly allow a woman’s soul to rot.

Whitney Beaupré has been hiding a big secret for years, one that’s beginning to wear her down both on and off the ice. Pretending to be something she’s not is exhausting. Wanting to be free but afraid to break out of her prison is terrifying. Seeking love but then hiding from it is crushing to the spirit, yet Whitney feels compelled to keep living the lie. Until the night Hannah Kym appears in her life. Whitney’s attraction to Hannah is deep, fierce, and instantaneous. The Temple art major is everything Whitney has dreamed of and more. But those old fears keep clawing at the Venom center, keeping her locked in the closet despite the passion and affection she feels for Hannah.

Can love finally break the shackles holding Whitney’s heart and soul captive?

Two things about V.L. Locey, if you've followed her on social media is you know she loves hockey and writing. Playmaker is an F/F hockey novella. It's a short read which I favor in times when I want to read some amazing and fast. There's a grittiness only a hockey story can give, but there's heart and sweetness as well.

 The two MC's in this book are Hannah and Whitney. Whitney is an in the closet hockey player. Fear pretty much has kept her there. Fear is a powerful thing that controls a lot of us. Until she meets Hannah. Because of her, she is given the strength and courage to open that door and tell the world.

V.L Locey's writing is amazing, she grasps the emotion very well in this book. How the characters felt was never in question. I would have loved more background but when writing a novella you accept there is some "need for more" somewhere.

This is a lovely read with a lot to enjoy.

  1. Favourite place to read is snuggled in bed under the duvet. But sitting in the garden enjoying the sunshine is a close second.

  2. Under the covers in bed or curled up on the sofa.
