Swoon! Dream girl
This was my first listen by Rebecca Jenshak. Loved Scarlett & Leo's hot story! I spent most of the book swooning everytime Leo called Scarlett "Dream Girl". Then add in a bunch of hockey players to the mix and I'm sold. Excellent narration by Desiree Ketchum & Aaron Shedlock.
This audio does an amazing job at bringing the story to life! This is definitely a book that I enjoy listening to!
Leo is a professional hockey player (say less) and randomly meets this fun flirty bartender, Scarlett, who challenges him to a night of boy band karaoke. He’s consumed her thoughts. He’s about to head off for the preseason get together and gets a big surprise when he walks in. Scarlett is the coaches daughter!
This is a totally off limits relationship but they are so intensely drawn together. Scarlett is incredibly relatable as a FMC. She’s so down to earth and spunky and Leo is a total heartthrob. They journey these two take is just everything you want from a book and more!
This book was so swoons your heart will be fully invested in it. The whole team dynamic has you craving more from this series. But these two alone just go so hard you’ll fall hells over head. This was one of my favorite sports romance and now I want to read up Rebecca’s entire backlist.
The audio was phenomenal. I greatly enjoyed the narrators bringing the story to life. I didn’t feel like I needed to pause to read parts in the book. They brought the heat as well for these characters.
Swoony Hockey Romance
This is my first book by Rebecca and I loved it. Scarlett and Leo meet one night and hit it off only for him not to contact her after their night together. Turns out she is the coaches daughter but he can’t fight how he feels about her and he will do whatever it takes to try and make up for his mistake. These two have great chemistry and Leo is one swoony hockey player. I love how Scarlett doesn’t have to worry about how Leo feels about her like she had in her past relationships. Desiree Ketchum and Aaron Shedlock did a great job narrating this book. Aaron brought all the swoons to Leo and Desiree was the perfect voice for Scarlett. I really enjoyed this book and I’m looking forward to more from Rebecca.
Wildcat on Audio
By Rebecca Jenshak
I love a good sports romance and this book was such a cute book. This is a coach’s daughter hockey romance. The main character has gone through a bad breakup and is trying to find herself while the MC is a big time hockey star. Scarlett May be the coach’s daughter but she does not follow hockey and has no clue who Leo Lohan is. They meet and have a great night. Eventually finding out who the other is. She is not ready to date and she is his dream girl. This is a sweet safe read with cute banter and a HEA. The narrators were great and did a great job getting you into the story. Will definitely check out more books by this author:especially when I need a sweet story to cleanse that dark romance I binge.
Fantastic Story & Narration🎧 A Swoon-Worthy & Heartfelt Delight!
By Bette H
This fabulously entertaining sports romance novel swept me right in, grabbing my attention and captivating it the entire book. The characters are relatable, easy to connect with and care about. I adored the two lead characters, Scarlett Miller and Leo Lohan, the secondary characters are pretty amazing too. Scarlett is back home in the states after living in London with her now ex-boyfriend Rhyse, a professional race car driver. For the sake of publicity and his image, they kept their relationship private, but she was tired of being his secret girlfriend and gave him the chance to go public, but he chose his career instead. She opted to never get involved with another athlete again. She worked some odd jobs, including waitressing, which she is not very good at. But trivia nights at the bar were busy, and they needed the extra hands. And that is where she met him, hot Leo, the two hit it off right from the start and spent a memorable and hot night together. He said he would call her but it has been almost a week and she has not heard from him. Leo could not get Scarlett out of his mind or his dreams, she did not know who he was, which was a delight because most recognize the Wildcat hockey players. He did plan on calling her, but it was a busy week for him and he kept putting it off. The coach had invited the team over to his house, like he does every year at the start of the season, and it surprised him to see his dream girl there, even more surprised to find out who she was, the coach daughter, a big no no. I loved how these two came about and everything that followed, it is a charming and beautifully plotted story with a perfect balance of drama, heartfelt emotions and a steamy and swoon-worthy romance. Rebecca Jenshak, thank you for another wonderful story and emotional rollercoaster ride.
🎧📚🎧 And for the fabulous narration, Rebecca Jenshak could not have chosen a better cast to bring her characters and story to life. Aaron Shedlock and Desiree Ketchum are entertaining storytellers and versatile voice artists. There is a natural talent to them and I loved how they took each role, ran with it and made it their own. Shedlock played the Leo’s role with perfection, grasped every side of his personality including his swoon-worthy charm and lightheartedness, Ketchum did the same for Scarlett, playing her like the strong woman she is. You could hear how much heart these two put into their work as they capture all the character’s emotions and project them into their performance, and have you feeling every single one. Thank you for another fabulous listen, it is always a pleasure to listen to your performance.
swoony new adults sports romance
What a fun book. Leo, one of the Mavericks, a relatively new professional hockey team, meets Scarlett and they have a one night stand. It's unforgettable but Leo is just starting the season so he doesn't call or text her immediately (beside one text the day after). So, they start off as enemies, at least from Scarlett's eyes. I absolutely loved their relationship, especially as Leo tries to get back into Scarlett's good graces. His caring attitude towards Scarlett made my heart swoon (I mean, he got her coffee every morning! As a coffee addict, this is a priority and my husband does this as well and I feel so special because he always remembers).
The conflict comes in as Scarlett deals with her past (her ex, a professional race car driver, refused to acknowledge her in public) and issues with the media, a typical issue in professional sports romances.
Overall, I really enjoyed this story. I would take half a star off because I didn't like how either Scarlett or Leo acted during the conflict, which I felt was inconsistent with the way that the rest of the story went. But I spent most of the book smiling or swooning so you can't get better than that! I cannot wait to see who next from the Mavericks gets his HEA. There are so many likable characters in this series (although, maybe Ash please!!)
I had the opportunity to listen to the audiobook and it was narrated by Aaron Shedlock and Desiree Ketchum who were fantastic. I'm a huge fan of Aaron Shedlock and his beautifully smooth voice was perfect for Leo. Desiree Ketchum was also a fantastic narrator and both were paced well, were able to modulate their voices so perfectly for the multiple characters and drew me into the story.
So good! I couldn’t put it down. Looking forward to the second book in the series!
Hot Leo and his Dream Girl
This is my new favorite Rebecca Jenshak book. Leo and Scarlett are my new favorite couple Rebecca Jenshak has written. I loved their personalities, how they handled situations, the interactions between them and the other characters. I just plain old loved them. I could not get enough of this book and can’t wait to see more glimpses of Leo and Scarlett in the upcoming books
Adorable and sexy
By Romantic Rush Blog
Swoony and sexy, heartfelt and fun- Wildcat is so delightfully adorable! What a fantastic beginning to the Wildcat Hockey world- I am simply obsessed with this couple!
Our namesake character, our Wildcat heroine is hands down my favorite RJ heroine EVER. I’m seriously madly in love with her- she’s just so special, so unique, so relatable and so fun. She’s an unapologetic “mess”- and like, same girl. We’ve all been in her shoes, and I loved watching figure herself out. Working through her “mess” and learning to embrace that she beats to her own drum. Not only do we get an epic love story with her and Leo, but this is also really her love story with her life- her building her OWN path for herself after huge stepbacks, heartbreak, and detours. Her character voice is SO brilliant and perfectly captured- I feel like I know her so well. I loved all her relationships with her family, the specificity to her, her humour and sass, her vulnerability, her ridiculousness, her boldness with Leo. She’s so well rounded and dynamic as a character- and I found myself giddy every time I got to embody her mind. She’s just the best.
And Leo- well SWOOOOOOOOOON. All RJ heroes have a swoony factor, but Leo is just so easy to fall for. He’s loyal, fun, affable, and kind- a reformed casual relationship guy who has found his dream girl and GOES HARD to win her, even though she’s the coach’s daughter. He's so dreamy, and all his sweet moments where he's figuring out how to get the girl are just so endearing. But I loved most just how supportive he is of Scarlet- he cherishes her “mess,” he has her back and lifts her up. And their chemistry is heart and panty melting. They fall so easily together. They help each other shine. The connection is both authentic AND fun- I just loved watching them flirt and bond so much. AND THEY ARE ALSO FIRE IN THE SHEETS!
With every new series, RJ gets better and better, and this series starter has me SUPER excited for this Wildcat series. Not only do we get to spend some QT with my favorite RJ hero, but the Wildcats are hysterical and fascinating. I’m melting for each of them already, and I can’t wait to get all of their stories! I'm still desperate for Jack, but Ash now has my heart. he dynamic is great, each has a bit of mystery or personality dynamic that I want to break down more. I’m over the moon that I get to spend more time in this fantastic new Wildcat world- I have a feeling, it’s going to be my new favorite place to be.
