Lia Riley returns to the blog today with the second in her Hellion’s Angels contemporary sports romance series. Read on for my review of
I love Lia Riley books for the escape factor – it’s easy to jump in and read just to hide away from the chaos of the world around you. In Head Coach, we are reintroduced to Tor, the head coach of the Hellion’s Angels hockey team, friend of Jed (Mr. Hockey) and not a fan of the dance coaches are expected to do with the media. In fact, if he could burn all the press passes in the arena – he would do that just to avoid talking with them. In particular, he’s frustrated and flummoxed by one particular sports writer who just happens to be the sister of his friend’s girl: Neve.
Neve has worked her entire life (and works hard) to prove herself as a sports journalist. She researches exhaustively, and as a lifetime fan of the Hellions, she seems always to ask the questions that no one else does, much to Tor’s disgust and discomfiture. The two have poked and prodded at one another for years, and a lost bet leads Tor to invite her as his plus one to an out of town wedding.
With the two away from their jobs and the necessary back and forth – things heat up spectacularly – even though neither is looking for anything more than that weekend. It’s back to normal as they both try to deny the undeniable: resulting in several memories that heat up even the most cold-hearted. Full of the things that makes a Riley book fun: Tor’s change into smutty talking, all alpha male and Neve’s enjoyment of being ‘that woman’ for only a weekend has to be enough. Or is it? If you like the fun of a Lia Riley book with the lack of drama and angst as everyone rethinks everything rather than going down the path destined for them to follow – you’ll enjoy this book with a side of ice water!

Neve Angel’s life is all work and no play, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. One of Denver’s top sports reporters, she's fought hard to make it in a male-dominated world, and she won’t back down from a fight with anyone–not even the Hellions’ gruff head coach, Tor Gunnar. Her hostile relationship with the icy Scandinavian is the stuff of local legend.
Tor Gunnar hates dealing with the media; at best, they are a nuisance and at worst, a distraction. And no one distracts him more than the scrappy, sexy reporter who gets him hot under the collar. When he wins a not-so-friendly bet with Neve, he decides it’s high time they either kiss or kill each other, and invites her as a date to an out-of-town wedding.
But what happens when enemies become lovers? Will they be able to smother their sizzling attraction, or is it time to start playing for keeps?
