What’s a little kissing between late night friends?
I just met the girl of my dreams. Megan Davenport is funny and smart, and she’s as much of an insomniac as I am. She’s also my team captain’s little sister, which I only found out after our passionate kiss. Megan is completely off-limits—her brother makes that very clear—and I know better than to think I can keep a relationship going during hockey season anyway. But that doesn’t mean we can’t be late-night friends, right?
I just need to remember the rules...

Smart Sexy and Hot with a side of Ice
Sweet collage romance, with intelligent people, who make well thought out decisions. Sexy, sexual tension with just the right amount of naked time. I just couldn't help but cheer these characters on, they were so well written.

Received an advance reader copy from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review
I loved this one so so much!
For me it had a lot of a nostalgic feeling, it's weird because I didn't experienced anything of it.
Still it gave me a good and fluffy feeling.
Dane and Megan their meeting was so funny and great... ...more
The story of Megan and Dane was good but also frustrating. I loved the writing, all the cast of characters and even the college setting. You've got hunky, hockey players, good friends and minimal other women drama. The frustrating thing is how Dane keeps Megan at arms length throughout the whole... ...more
3.5 ~ "Just take my hand and follow me." ~ Stars
A chance meeting between hockey player Dane and math geek Megan set off sparks faster then either one expected. They hit it off immediately, only problem? Megan is his friend and team mate's little sister and completely off limits. Not trying to c... ...more
While Crazy Pucking Love can be read as a standalone (which is how I read it) I do think it would be beneficial to read the other books in the series first as there are a lot of references within the narrative to events that have occurred during the first two books.
Megan is a completely adorable... ...more
It’s no secret that I’m in love with Dane since book two and couldn’t wait to hear his story and see him get his HEA.
So needless to say I loved this book…. For the most part.
I liked Megan, math genius, quirky, funny, just an overall nerd. I liked that she didn’t back down from him in the begi... ...more

It was sweet, funny and sexy. Once I started reading I didn't want to put it down at all. I was hooked from... ...more
College hockey is the background theme to this third story in the Taking Shot's series, combined with the forbidden romance trope of a player (in more ways than one) falling for his teammate's sister.
Beckett, who was the hero in Getting Lucky Number Seven knows that his teammate Dane is trying t... ...more

Really enjoyed this book! My first from the author, but it will not be my last! ...more
I have really enjoyed this series. A group of hockey players in college, all with struggles in their personal lives. Dane is a character I had wondered about and I really wanted to get to know him.
And get to know him, I did. He sets himself to a different standard than those around him. He blames... ...more

Original Review @ Naomi’s Reading Palace
How I love this series and seeing the nerdy girls fall for the dreamy ice hockey guys! I was not disappointed with Dane and Megan's story either. These two had some serious chemistry, and I loved seeing them fight their attraction. It was sweet to... ...more

Dane Kowalski has never met anyone like Megan Davenport. Unfortunately, he’s not looking for a relationship, and besides, there’s one big reason why they can’t be together. She’s the sister of one of his hockey teammates, and big brother has warned everyone she... ...more
Cindi Madsen is a new author for me and I really enjoyed Crazy Pucking Love.
If you like sexy sport college romance then this book is for you. Megan meets Dane and you can straightaway feel the chemistry between them. Megan wants a relationship and not be a one night stand girl " by senior year... ...more
I loved when Dane went all caveman, “trust me, there’s nothing brotherly about how I’m feeling right now.” Another inch and we were hip to hip, my erection pressing against her, my self-control completely unraveled and laid at her feet. “This is more pure, animalistic, you’re-mine-and-I-don’t-wan... ...more
There were moments that sucked me in a pieces that I skimmed. It took me longer to get through this book than I anticipated, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
Overall, this is a cute book with a nice cast of characters.
If you are looking for a cute mellow read: this is your book. ...more
