Overall Grade: ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Wildcat, the first book of Rebecca Jenshak’s Wildcat Hockey series, is a GREAT start to the series. Featuring Leo Lohan, one of the Wildcat’s top forwards, (her heroine, Scarlett, loves to call him by his first and last name – and so do I…cuz alliteration) this tells his story of falling in love with the coach’s daughter. Without spoiling it, you need not worry that this relationship is forbidden; instead, it creates potential discomfort. The real issue for Leo and Scarlett is the notoriety of his job, along with her past experience with an athlete celebrity, and her own lack of direction throughout their story. Yet, from the start, Leo falls deep for Scarlett. For me, he’s the best part of the book as he’s your typical hero: intelligent (both mentally and emotionally), do-gooder, hard-working, and an unassuming leader. He adores Scarlett from the outset, and he is tenacious in his pursuit of her. He (and Jack, the Wildcat’s captain) is the glue of this team. For the most part, Jenshak’s Wildcat is an easy read for a Sunday afternoon. There is some tension between Scarlett and Leo, but Jenshak minimizes it with plenty of steam and the influences of Leo’s teammates in his life, heroes in future Wildcat Hockey stories.
Overall, I enjoyed reading Rebecca Jensak’s Wildcat. If you’re a fan of hockey romances, you’ll want to jump into this series.
In love and romance,
