    Blurb:
    One accident - a freaking car crash. That’s all it took to send my life into a tailspin.
    Little did I know that out of the wreckage, everything would fall into place. I would get everything I had ever worked for.

    Little did I know that I would find the woman who would cross check my life, flipping everything upside down.
    Even though she's melting the ice that surrounds my heart, I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop. Will I ever be able to find my footing or am I destined to stay pinned against the boards?
    Note: Cross Checked is the second book in the Shots On Goal Series. It can be read as a standalone, has a happily ever after, and does not have a cliffhanger. There are character crossovers from Hat Trick (book one in the series) which is also a standalone with a HEA and no cliffhanger.


    My rating: 3 of 5 stars

    After reading the Huntress series, which was more of a darker read, I was more than a little excited to try something contemporary from Kristen Hope Mazzola. Then I read her note at the beginning of the book and I was hooked. I love when authors give us some insight into who they really are!

    This author has a unique style of writing that immediately grabs my attention, with entertaining plots and interesting characters. I enjoyed getting to know Brayden and Karla but I felt that far too much of their story happened behind the scenes. It could be because I haven't read Hat Trick. So as much as I wanted to root for their happy ending, I wasn't that dedicated because I didn't feel like I knew them all that well. This story felt a bit rushed and so their characters weren't fully developed nor was their relationship 100% believable.

    Sometimes I really hate going against popular opinion but there is usually no way to avoid it. Luckily, I was asked for my honest opinion and that is exactly what I'm going to give.



    This was a difficult story to become completely immersed in. Too many times to count I felt like I was missing something. Actually, I felt like I was lost right from the start.



    But I wasn't missing anything. Huge chunks of what should have been plot didn't make it somehow into my copy of the book, leaving me with too many questions at the end of my read. All things considered, this is slated as a standalone and I'm wondering if answers will ever be provided.



    Please note that my dissatisfaction with this one story will not prevent me from picking up another book from this author. I adored her Huntress series and I'm sure many of you will enjoy CROSS CHECKED despite my opinion.

    About the Author:
    I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time “day job” and by night I am an author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.

    Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I’d like or just to shoot the, well you know.
