Cayuga Cougars Series
The happy times are about to turn rough, though. The Cougars have picked up a new player, Sander March, a brash young center whose sass, skill, and attitude can rival Victor's. When it's revealed that this new player and Dan have history, tensions begin to rise between the newlyweds. As Victor and Dan work on those issues, the one person Victor never thought he would meet arrives in the small New York hamlet and proceeds to flip everything in Vic's life upside down.
Can Victor and Dan's marriage withstand what life is about to drop on it, or will the challenges be too much for them to handle?
It was really great to go back and revisit Vic and Dan here in Coach’s Challenge. It’s told from Vic’s point of view, so you get a lot of his rough personality on every page—including his combative attitude towards his therapist, insecurities thanks to his crappy childhood, and just his overall alpha male-ness shining through from start to finish.
There’s an overload of angst in this one, and the majority of it can be traced back to Vic’s turbulent past. But what that means is this story gets to show the growth of Vic’s character, and how he learns to work through his issues. As a reader, you know that Dan and Vic love each other without reservation, and even though they’re presented with some crazy bumps in the road to deal with, it’s that unconditional love and the bond they share that Vic falls back on to pull him through all the craziness.
With the introduction of Sander’s character (one of those bumps in the road), there’s the promise of another interesting story in the series. Sander is just as headstrong and cocky as Vic, so you not only get that tension boiling over here in this story, but you know you’ve got some more of that cocky attitude to look forward to in another book. I’m also looking forward to more of Lancaster as well—even more so than Sander.
To get the most enjoyment out of this story, I would recommend reading the Point Shot Trilogy and the first two books of the Cayuga Cougars series so you get all the background on the other players and characters you’ll see in this story. But even if you read this without the others, you’ll still be able to follow along since enough additional information is given to do so. Fans of either or both series will enjoy Coach’s Challenge; it was a 3.5-star read for me. This book is for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.
V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, a flock of assorted domestic fowl, and two Jersey steers.
When not writing spicy romances, she enjoys spending her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in hand. She can also be found online on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and GoodReads.
