    .however, I ve been a Stan fan from the first moment I met him in Changing Lines, where every subsequent book revealed his extraordinary generosity toward strays, orphans, kids, babies, and literally anyone needing a helping hand Russian NHL goalie Stanilov Stan Lyamin is a character as huge as his physical presence, a gentle, kind hearted Teddy Bear to babies, kittens, puppies and kids in general In fact, his natural proclivity toward always being gentle, goofy, and patient, perhaps exceeded only by his larger than life, massively generous heart That generosity helps mend things between Stan and Eric, who gets to finally explain how he ended up a single divorced father to nine month Noah, whom he loves to pieces, and Stan can t resist himself.Stan is so loving, gentle and wickedly generous, but also comes with a massive ego and bossy side that soon has Eric with Noah and his nanny safely moved into Stan s mansion, to the Russian s utmost satisfaction Their chemistry is off the charts sizzling hot, so much so that it s very difficult to believe Eric actually thought he d get over Stan Fortunately, Stan has about as much resistance to and control where Eric is concerned.Five stars seems inadequate even the usual strangely devoid of an acceptable conclusion didn t throw me off my liking of this book Shrug eye roll sigh It s Stan Totally worth it

    Stan I ve been hoping for Stan s story from the start This was probably my favorite in the series so far One of my favorite tropes is the second chance at love Stan and Erik have a brief but passionate past Erik is trying to live through the mess he admittedly created of his life Can two men who love each other get past all the hurt and move forward I loved Erik with his son, Noah I loved Stan s fierce love and loyalty to his mother and sister Stan s sister Galina is a hoot and the whole trip to Vegas was hysterical If you ve been reading the series, you won t want to miss this If you haven t read the series, you can read this as a standalone, but you ll be missing on all the other guy s backstories and that would be a shame.If you re an RJ Scott fan like me you won t be disappointed This collaboration between RJ and VL Locey is something special I don t know how they do it, but I m so happy that these two authors put their heads together and give us such wonderful stories.I m over the moon with this series and can t wait for the next book to come out RECOMMENDED

    I was given an ARC in exchange for a review but I loved it enough to buy the published version This is my favorite of the series so far I ve re read it a couple of times since I received the ARC.Presumably because of Stan s limited but growing fluency in English, it feels like there is internal thoughts and dialogue in this book than previous books in the series, for both Erik and Stan However, that provides a lot of opportunity to know what Stan and Erik love about each other, which can be a challenge in a second chance romance that doesn t flash back to the initial romance.I also enjoyed the ongoing friendships between the teammates and learning about secondary characters, as well as friendships developed prior to being teammates The hotel breakfast scene between Erik and Conner is especially funny it makes me wonder if Conner knew what he was getting into when he became Captain of the Railers.I think my favorite aspect is getting to know Stan much better because of having his POV and the importance of family to him and seeing him achieve his dreams of home and family.

    I think I ve liked this one the best out of the series so far I liked that there wasn t a ton of dithering and that they just went for what they wanted and made it work despite the language barrier That said, I did find the language barrier a bit frustrating but surprisingly it didn t lead to the feeling of a lack of connection between Stan and Erik which is why I think I ve liked this one the best so far Stan and Erik connected on a heart level completely.I think there was a glaring issue with never addressing Stan s citizenship that should have been discussed and dealt with that did leave the book with a feeling of unresolved, serious issues.

    Another amazing story in their Harrisburg Railers series StanStanStan Sigh.I have been fascinated with him since Changing Lanes saga with Ten and Jared I wanted to see of him and get his backstory How this loveable, slightly strange and totally adorable giant of a man can be so open, caring and friendly without having someone in his life Then we find out about Erik the beautiful Swedish hockey player who sadly broke Stan s heart In his attempt to do the right thing for his child AND his and Stan s careers, Erik made a mess Nothing was right, both of them alone and hurting, until Erik told the truth to Stan The adage of The Truth Will Set You Free helps both Stan AND Erik in their coming together again Stan, this larger than life man, just wants to be happy To have his family, husband and children happy and with him To have the American Dream.

    Erik Gunnar Gunnarsson comes to the Harrisburg Railers with a new baby and the hope that man he loves can forgive him for baby Noah.Stanislav Stan Lyamin is the goalie for the Railers Good at his job, which is to keep the other team from scoring Seeing Erik on his ice brings back the heartache he had when Erik left him and married the mother of his child.Their summer together went deep into each mans heart Erik hopes Stan will let him explain what happened Stan doesn t want to know the how s or why s, he just knows Erik betrayed him.Two determined, stubborn men, just wanting to be together, but having trouble making it happen Vodka, a lot of vodka helps them break through barriers and begin the journey back to each other.Seriously, this series is excellent The men are believable and the sense of family throughout the stories is consistent and heartfelt.

    3.5 Stars I really liked Stan and Eric I was super excited about this book and I enjoyed it.I like everything that is here but to be a really great read, detail, and couple time, and exploration was needed.The writers are in a tricky spot because Stan s English is not great, he doesn t speak Swedish, and Eric s Russian is basically nil.However, when we are in Stan s head things work well and this is a lovely alternating point of view book.I just needed complexity to really feel the love between these two great heroes

  13. AnnElm AnnElm says:

    Stans story is finally here And who doesn t love that big, Russian goalie.I love Stan, I love Erik with Stan and Eriks son Noah is just to adorable for words.With Stan and Erik having ended things with broken hearts as a result and Erik having married and had a son with a woman, the tension between them are high when Erik is traded to Stans team.But things are not always how they seem and when there s still a major attraction and deep feelings left it s only a matter of time before something gives.These books are awesome and they get an extra point because of the first sentence in the book and because of Erik and Arvy I m Swedish too Can t wait to read about the Harrisburg Railers and the men on the team.

    Happy Valentine s Day I bought this for myself as a V Day gift Well, this was pretty low on angst Mostly sweet though I think Stan is the one character that always makes me laugh Even in the first three books.I m honestly a little torn While it was sweet and Stan made me smile, the storyline didn t really have much happening It bumbled along nicely and that was it.From the blurb, I kind of expected some amount of drama And while there was some tension, it kinda fizzled out pretty quickly.I do love both the MCs though Stan is sweet and super adorable And Erik, well, he s understandably strained and it showed Whoever wrote Erik did an amazing job I just wish the storyline had a bit oomph to it.

    I love hockey and I love romance so one clicking this one was a no brainer even if this author duo was unknown to me I was not disappointed This book made me smile, laugh and turn page after page till I was finished The plot worked well, and the writing was smooth sailing from start to finish The characters was excellent developed and the reader meets a strong cast of supporting characters.This series is now added to my list of favourites.
