Practice Makes Perfect

Patrick “Patch” Donnelly has what it takes to be the best goalie in the NHL…if only he could learn to control his temper. When Coach orders him to get his head in the game with private yoga classes, Patch isn’t having it. There’s no way this tough Boston guy would be caught dead downward dog-ing his way to inner peace. But if he refuses, he risks his starting position and the dream he sacrificed everything for, including joining the priesthood.

Yoga instructor Margot Kowalski is over men. After yet another toxic relationship, she’s eager to forget love and focus on growing her business. Doing the Hellions head coach a favor by helping out a troubled player can't hurt, and it might give her career a high-profile boost. But free-spirited Margot is soon charming the pants off Patch. Literally. Her sassy combination of sweet and sexy proves irresistible to the goalie. Before Patch can give into temptation though, he’ll have to confess his biggest secret:

He’s a virgin.

But Patch is hiding more than sexual inexperience, and his dark past soon threatens to destroy his shot at true love.


A humorous return to Lia Riley’s hockey world will snag your heart! Patch is not your typical pro sports guy, and it was a breath of fresh air to see him work towards releasing some of the toxins he’s held in for so long and just learn to live a little. He and Margot were adorable together. There were some plot holes that could have been built up a little more, but the characters were a lot of fun and the overall feel of the book was satisfying!

Patrick “Patch” Donnelly has the talent to be the best goalie in NHL if only he could control his temper. Coach is at his wits ends after his latest fiasco and threatens his starting positions if he doesn’t do this last ditch effort to try to learn another release for his anger. He has to go have private yoga lessons!

Yoga instructor Margot Kowalski is fed up with men because it seems like all she ever seems to wind up with are losers. She’s going to put her love life on the back burner for awhile and concentrate on growing her yoga business, so doing a favor for her friend at the same time she gives her studio a little visibility seems like a win-win. She didn’t factor in how tempting a sexy hockey player was going to be though. She was assuming a conceited jerk that she’d be happy to see the backside of as he left each lesson, but instead she gets a kind, sweet, misunderstood kind of soul that touches her more than she should admit. And when he spills his big secret … that he once considered priesthood and is still a virgin … no way can she let this guy slip through her fingers!
