Hockey star Brett Sillinger’s never been afraid of a little trouble. But when his personal life ends up in the tabloids, he knows his career is on thin ice. Luckily, a new team decides to take a chance on him. All he has to do is keep his head in the game. But when temptation walks up wearing black knee-high boots, searching for a night of nameless, no-strings passion, well, what's a guy to do?

Chelsea London is looking to misbehave. What’s being good ever gotten her, besides getting dumped and passed over for a big promotion at work? But her delicious night of rebellion has unexpected consequences—her hot one-night stand is the latest addition to her father’s hockey team. And suddenly, a single night of bad-girldom isn’t nearly enough.

But one false move and Brett might spend this season in the penalty box...

I kid you not my iPad was at risk over overheating here as Taryn Leigh Taylor combines light and easy romance with hot and steamy sexy-times between a couple whose chemistry blazes bright from the moment they set eyes on one another.

4 - "Sometimes you have to follow your heart..." Stars!

Taking a Shot is the first book I have read by Taryn Leigh Taylor, I love a good romance based around sports men and/or women, and the Montana Wolfpack ice hockey team offers up plenty of potential for future books (here’s hoping).

Taking a Shot is the first book I’ve read by this author but apparently, reading more information about the series, I’ve found Brett was one of the most requested characters fans asked to get his own book.

I have to say that this book really surprised me. I chose it because of the cover and because it was a hockey romance and that is my favorite kind of romance to read. The author did a really great job writing this book and getting the message out that it is not okay to cyber bully people in anyway. ...more

Absolutely adorable!

I loved Chelsea's character. Her tendency toward overcompensation ("'I made breakfast.' So. Much. Breakfast." LOL, yes she did...) and babbling when nervous paired with her desire to be a "bad girl" when she's really anything but wa ...more

By Stacy August 29, 2018

I LOVED this book. The chemistry these two had was amazing.

I could relate to Chelsea in so many ways. She is the dependable, hardworking, overlooked “yes” woman who has always been a good girl. After a devastating announcement, she decides that for one night, she isn’t going to be the good girl. Thi ...more

I ended up loving Taking a Shot and I need more books in this series NOW! There were a couple of chapters very early on that meandered a bit, and I came very close to DNFing but I am so glad I persevered. This ended up being fun, sexy, romantic, and just all around an enjoyable read. Brett ...more

About the author

Taryn Leigh Taylor

Taryn Leigh Taylor likes dinosaurs, bridges, and space, both personal and of the final frontier variety. She shamelessly indulges in clichés, most notably her Starbucks addiction (grande-six-pump-whole-milk-no-water chai tea latte, aka: the usual), her shoe hoard (I can stop anytime I...ooh! These are pretty!), and hockey (keepin’ it Canadian, eh?) Eventually, her penchant for falling in reading lust with fictional men set her on the course to writing them, too. She’s a firm believer that you can never have enough happily ever afters. Taryn’s first book, Kiss and Makeup, was short-listed for the Kobo Emerging Writer prize.
