Unwritten Rules, Rules of the Game, Book 4 By: Brigham Vaughn Narrated by: James Edward Jones

Lesetiger has been listening to the Rules of the Game series and has reached book 4, Unwritten Rules. Here is their review.

From the blurb:

Rule number one: Don't fall in love with your family's sworn enemy.

Taylor Hollis brought home gold at the Olympics, then quit competitive skating at the height of his career.

Four years later, he lives a quiet life teaching figure skating classes and looking for the perfect guy with whom to settle down and build a family.

When the Evanston River Otters hire Taylor to take part in a feel-good media piece, he’ll have to defy his father and work with the son of the man he detests.

And his one weakness is a hot older guy who’s good with kids.

Rule number two: Choose your loyalties wisely.

Last season, Jamie Walsh left the Chicago Windstorm after a nasty divorce and falling out with his linemate.

Now he’s getting settled as a new forward for the Otters.

His biggest priority is his five-year-old daughter, Ava, but he can’t ignore how attractive he finds her skating teacher.

The only man he’s ever been interested in.

The more time they spend together, the harder it is for Jamie to ignore his feelings.

Too bad Taylor’s father has always blamed Jamie’s dad for ruining his hockey career.

Jamie and Taylor are perfect for one another but they’ll have to ignore both of their families’ unwritten rules if they let themselves fall in love with the enemy.

Trigger warning: frank discussion of eating disorders and past infidelity of secondary characters.

Lesetiger's Review:

I really like this hockey series and that's why I was looking forward to this audiobook. This time it's a story of enemies to lovers. Jamie, a hockey player, met Taylor, a figure skater, at the Olympics, but that's when they had a falling out. That's not the only family drama, though, because there's also the drama between their fathers and Jamie's very own family drama with his ex-wife.

I totally liked Taylor and Jamie. Jamie's story is really heartbreaking, but he absolutely lovingly takes care of his five-year-old daughter, Ava, who is totally adorable. Taylor is also very likable and the two meet again when Ava gets training lessons from Taylor.

The two have chemistry from the moment they meet, but they both want to keep it casual. And the two make a cute couple! But how do you act when feelings suddenly come into play?

I liked the story, it was entertaining, has some drama, but mostly without angst. And I was happy to see the characters from the previous volumes again. I enjoyed the scenes on the ice and wish there could have been more.

James Edward Jones gave a solid performance. I especially liked his voice for Ava, as well as the accent he gives to the Canadian Gabriel.
