Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐
I went into Offside with #55 fully expecting some fireworks, and this pair doesn't disappoint. Jana and Kane butt heads over pretty much everything, and their chemistry is undeniable, whether one of them admits it or not. Basically, Kane and Jana have a secret arrangement - kind of a means of scratching an itch - until they move into their new positions and things get complicated. At this point, they're trying to navigate their new jobs and still keep the team on track, which may prove to be more than they can handle, let alone having any kind of personal relationship. Actually, some of my favorite parts of the book were during Jana and Kane's growing pains as owner and coach respectively. Then the personal stuff puts them to the test as they deal with yet one more thing (or two). Part of that is the twist that tests the limits of the relationship, so I'll just leave those details in the book where they belong.
Joe Arden and Melissa Moran give voice to these characters, and they do it wonderfully as expected. At the risk of repeating myself - I feel like I've said this a lot lately - Joe Arden's sexy voice is always a pleasure to hear. I seem to be listening to him a lot lately, and he never disappoints. I haven't listened to Melissa Moran in some time, but she's as good as I remember. Both narrators bring out all the emotion of the story. Whether Kane and Jana are going head to head or all over each other or somewhere in between, it comes through in the performance, and it makes for a listen that makes you want to just keep going, one that you won't want to hit that pause button for anything.
So, an entertaining and engaging story with terrific characters, and narration that's everything I could want from this book. It's a solid conclusion to the series, and I haven't had the pleasure of getting every couple's story yet, but so far, I'd have to say Piper Rayne saved the best for last.
