Welcome to Fort Lauderdale—where the days are hot and the Knights are hotter…

I might be at the top of my game, but a fresh start feels like the right move at this stage of my career. Joining the Lauderdale Knights has been a great decision, and I’m ready to win this city over.

On opening night the crowd goes wild… and so does my slap shot. Knocking a fan unconscious wasn’t the introduction I envisioned. Especially when I lay eyes on my gorgeous victim. Problem is… she’s engaged.

Waking up with a concussion and amnesia has made me realize that when it comes to living life on my terms, it’s now or never. My big Italian family means well, but it’s time for them to stop calling the shots.

Now if I could just get rid of my fiancé, quit my job, and stop drooling over the hottie hockey player who knocked some sense into me, life would be perfect. Except nothing in my life is perfect… not even Lauderdale’s newest MVP.


I’m already hooked! Kat Mizera’s brand new Lauderdale Knights series is already destined for success just by the few familiar faces she’s bringing in from her past series’, and this first book did not disappoint one bit. In SLAP SHOT, Vaughn sets out to rediscover himself a bit and falling for a fan sets the stage quickly. I loved seeing the groundwork go into this team and can’t wait to see them develop throughout.

Juliet is such a sweetheart. She’s a huge hockey fan and even getting hit in the head and knocked unconscious doesn’t dim her fandom. I loved watching her come into herself and set herself apart from her overbearing family.

Vaughn is complex and fun. He has a side to his past coming into play as he sets out to shine in a new phase of his life, and then adding the good fortune of meeting Juliet to the mix is icing on the cake.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a hockey romance with enjoyable characters, drama going on behind the scenes and a happily ever after building throughout. I’m highly anticipating more from this series!
