I could read author G. K. Brady’s books forever. Once I’ve read them all I will just read them again. Actually, I’ve already done that with more than one of them. There is just something that draws you in and keeps you interested. These stories are like potato chips – you can’t stop with one. Yes, they’re “just” hockey players, living the big life with their fame and money and puck bunnies, but there is so much more to them. They feel like real people who work hard, care about others, and have pasts and fears that make things hard.

Each book has action, tension, conflict and difficult situations. Lots and lots of heat. And humor. Subtle or laugh-out-loud ridiculous, it’s always there and maybe that’s what makes these stories so unforgettable. The Winning Score, Book 4 in The Playmakers series, has an abundance of humor and you will love every snicker, giggle and guffaw it brings out of you. Quinn and Sarah are both talented, clever and capable, but some of the things they say and do will have you bursting into laughter and wiping your eyes.

Quinn Hadley is a player, and not just on the ice. In fact so much so that he has a secret phone to store the numbers of the women he visits all across the country. Gage Nelson is Quinn’s teammate – and Sarah’s brother. While Gage thought hot nights were just fine for him and Lily in Gauging the Player, he knows how smooth guys like Quinn operate and his sister is strictly off limits. Funny thing, though. The thrill for Gage is starting to dim. The women suddenly seem like they are all alike. (Well, duh.) Is he maturing? Just getting bored? Could it have anything to do with the fact that his ailing mother Liz has come to live with him and he suddenly has more responsibilities and memories to deal with? He grew up feeling he was the disappointing, never good enough son, and the adjustment to his mother in his life like this is hard for him. As for Sarah, Gage has nothing to worry about. Sarah is the opposite of his type in every way. The couple of times Quinn and Sarah were together sparks did fly – but not the good kind.

Sarah has come to Colorado to stay with Gage, Lily and Daisy, but it’s not a vacation or break from a demanding job she would like everyone to believe. No, it’s an escape. An escape from a horrible experience with someone she trusted with her career and her heart, both of which are now smashed. Sarah and Gage were raised by a bitter mother who thought Gage was perfect, and the only worthwhile man on the planet. So Sarah has Quinn’s number and is disdainful. She’s had enough of insincere men. She just wants to lick her wounds, feel safe and figure out how to get her life back on track.

Author Brady inserts an interesting twist into this story: the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Lockdowns, social distancing, sports schedules cancelled. As Liz’s caregiver who suddenly can’t go home, Sarah and her big, beautiful, brilliant, service-dog school drop-out Archer are stuck with Liz and Quinn in Quinn’s big, rented house. How’s that going to work? A lot of grating on each other’s nerves, that’s how. Until they start to discover things about each other: they’re both engineering brainiacs, they love exercise and puzzles . . . and then they discover other things, like I didn’t know he smelled like that, or he was surprisingly sweet just then, or why didn’t I notice she walked like that, or she’s so good with my mom. So the sparks that began as prelude to battle start to become prelude to something else. Turn your a/c up high and keep listening.

The Winning Score is silly and sexy and sweet and addresses serious topics like health and family and insecurity and false bravado, like lies and betrayal, and like being open to second chances and love. It’s a wonderful audiobook experience, brought to life by narrators Marcio Catalano and Samantha Brentmoor through their expert tone, pacing, emotion and ability to draw you fully into the story. Thanks to the author for providing an audio copy of The Winning Score. I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it and this entire series without hesitation. I voluntarily leave this review; all opinions are my own. ( )
