Snap Shot by V.L. Locey


This is book one in the Cayuga Cougars Hockey series

Summary: Mario McGarrity has been around the block – and rink – more than a few times.

He’s creeping up on retirement age, has some dings and dents, and says what’s on his mind. Not exactly what most would consider a luxury ride, but his beautiful Lila – the transgender woman who stole his heart – loves him like no other woman ever has despite a little rust here and there.

Everything is good – no, great – aside from the distance issue, until a surprise from Lila’s past crops up and moves in with her. Can Mario be the family man that Lila needs, or is this one game the old vet is unable to skate in?


The Review

Snap Shot by V.L. Locey is the first in the Cayuga Cougars series. Lila and Mario (aka Seamus) have a relationship that I think everyone aspires to have. No matter the difficulties they face, they face those issues together and work to find a solution.
I’ll be one hundred percent honest, I was hesitant at first towards how Lila was going to be written. It’s my first foray into this particular genre so I was a bit nervous about how their love scenes would be written. Locey blew it out of the water (in the greatest way possible). Lila and Seamus’ relationship was honest, full of steamy goodness and not at all raunchy (which was what I was afraid I’d find here).

I enjoyed seeing how Seamus dealt with the surprise Lila gave him, Langley, her son. Langley acted exactly how a kid in his shoes would act. He was a rebellious, smart ass that all teenagers are. Some of the things he did had me rolling my eyes but Seamus and Lila made an excellent team when it came to Langley.

I found myself falling in love with the secondary characters as well. Augie, the goalie and the rest of the team as they drifted through the novel had me laughing. When you fall in love with the secondary characters along with the main characters you know you’ve found an excellent book.

I was super excited to see that Augie was going to be featured in book two!

Would I recommend this book to others? Yes, so many times yes.
