Rushing Into Love by A.W. Scott (Bellport Book 1)

Rushing Into Love
continues our peek into the Bellport world, this time letting Jake Bellport, hockey team owner and philanthropist, find the love he needs...  

From the blurb:

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Jake loves hockey. Like really, really loves hockey. Since he has more money than he knows what to do with, he decides the best course of action is to build his very own team. The plan goes smoothly up until he needs to replace a couple of players and he decides the best way to do so is with his two favorites in the league. Only problem - they are lifelong rivals who hate each other.

Maddox has played for the Winnipeg Maple Leafs since draft day. He’s built a comfortable, albeit lonely, life playing the game he loves. Things change drastically when he’s told he’s been traded out of the blue. He has to start over and find a new sort of normal while building camaraderie with his teammates. Shouldn’t be too hard for a nice guy like him.

Leon is a hotheaded hockey superstar. He lives and breathes the game. When he finds out he’s been traded, his temper nearly gets the best of him. He reins it in long enough to get his essentials packed for the trip from Dallas to Bellport, per the new team’s instructions.

When Maddox and Leon discover they’ve not only been traded to the same team, but that the owner is an adorably naughty boy needing a Daddy (or two) things get decidedly more complicated. Can these two rivals learn to work together in the name of love? Will Jake’s mischievous plans pay off by giving him the men he’s obsessed over for far too long?

Rushing Into Love is an MMM romance featuring a bratty boy who loves to stir-the-pot and the two Daddies who work to keep up with him. It will feature characters from A Little Christmas: Finn and Hear Me. This is a standalone, though you might find the experience more enjoyable if you read those books first.

Heather's Review:

Rushing Into Love promised us a bratty boy and two Daddies and that's exactly what Jake created for himself by using his position as team owner of the hockey team to trade for the men he wanted to be his daddies... and luckily he also saw what no one else had seen before - the chemistry between the two daddies...

This book is a true insta-love instant daddy/boy situation.  Once Jake gets all the pieces into place it's low angst with good steam and a quick build to committed relationship.  The book also builds the foundation for Royce's book, with foreshadowing of what is to come when Finn, a side character with his own previous story decides he needs to own a baseball team...

It's rare that I crave angst, but in this case I think a little bit of angst or tension would have helped me get deeper into the story, but as it is this was a quick and lovely way to spend my afternoon.
