A talented rookie who's about to lose it all. A reluctant sports therapist who might be able to help.

He has everything a man could want. A lucrative hockey contract. Adoring fans. A family who loves him.

But he’s about to throw it all away. Logan Tate’s name is dominating the headlines for all the wrong reasons. Instead of goals and assists, the talented young defenseman has been racking up fights and suspensions.

I work with athletes who are struggling, but Logan’s different. He’s not just going to blow his season, but his entire career. And now he can’t return to the ice until he deals with his issues, but the stubborn man won’t let anyone get close enough to help.

Which is why I packed up and followed him to his family’s property in the remote mountains of Colorado. He can’t avoid me here.

The only problem?
I can’t avoid him either. He’s chopping wood and building fires, rescuing my car from snowy ditches, and inviting me to Sunday dinners with his loud extended family. He’s a whole lot of man, but beneath all those hard edges is an unexpected tenderness.

Tempted or not, I have to stay out of his bed and get him back to the ice . . . no matter how difficult that might be.


An emotional addition to the Looking to Score series from Kendall Ryan! THE ROOKIE is a bit unorthodox in that there is not a lot of hockey or much in the way of team camaraderie in it but Logan’s  family steals the show and makes the reader fall in love with each and every member of them by the end of the book. I wanted more of Logan and Summer together after they finally admit they’re all in, but I enjoyed their journey!

Logan is an interesting character who has a lot going on in his life at the moment that manages to take us on a journey to his family home in Colorado.

Summer is trying her best to get Logan back on the ice and back in a good head space.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys a hockey romance with a lot of heart.
