    I don't know if I ever loved a fictional romance as much as I did this one! To all my GR friends, PLEASE pick this one up PRONTO ladies!!! This is a story about Holly & Jackson who were in love & married for 11 years, but with Jackson putting his Hockey career & team fi...

    Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review: Body Check is an incredible, heart-melting, sizzling effing HOT second chance romance with heat, sparks, and ALL the glorious feels! Maria Luis brought me to my knees with her newest hockey romance. Out of all her books, this one made me sigh th...

    Update 29/9/18 One thing that REALLY bugged me up until the 18 chapters, which I didn?t identify until I slept on it which I feel like I should add here. It may not bug other readers and others actually might like the fact. Heroine pretty much sacrificed her whole life for hero an...

    Even if I don?t agree of reason for the divorce (11 years of marriage) and for feeling like heroine resented her husband?s successful career (that?s how I felt from her a couple of times in the book) and I think the problem was miscommunication (something I really disliked in boo...

    I am a huge Maria Luis fan, and her books never cease to amaze me. This one had all the feels, a story about true soulmates finding their way back to each other. Jackson is the captain of the Blades Hockey team and Holly is his ex-wife photographer. These two met in college and married...

    Maria Luis appreciation post!!! I feel like she is a bit of a hidden gem and people need to know how fantastic her books are. ALL her books. This installment of Blades Hockey is a second chance romance between divorced couple Holly and Jackson. How they found their way back to each oth...

    I loved it. ...

    Jackson wasn't a bad husband. He was good down to his core; always wanting to help others, to help me, but in living withing his shadow for so many years, I became a returning secondary character on the Jackson Carter Show, simply known as "the wife." --Holly 4.5 stars! I've been ...

    Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author...Maria has done it again! She brings us a love affair and two people who truly belong together and you are rooting from your chair the whole time. Jackson is the Captain of the Blades Hockey team and he is known as the badass of hockey, this man plays ...

    ?He kisses me like he plays hockey: with every last corner of his soul.? Wow. For such an amazing rom-com queen, this latest work from Luis is surprisingly profound and deep, dealing with some pretty spectacular devastation. With their first chance laying in tattered ruins, it appe...

    3.5 Stars What I liked - The chemistry and sexiness was strong because of their true real love for one another. It wasn't just a lust thing, which would have made it empty and gross to me. The love made the sexual spark. It wasn't sex that evolved into a relationship. I rarely like ...

    I?ve been waiting for this book since the very first sneak peak was released and I have to say, my expectations were blown out of the water! This is not your typical sports romance novel where our heroine falls in love with a big shot hockey star. This novel is a story about secon...

    This book was absolutely fantastic! SO. MANY. FEELS. This book tells the story of Jackson and Holly and their marriage, divorce and reconciliation. It's full of laugh out loud moments, steamy scenes, and some heartwrenching emotions. I love the way Maria Luis weaves all of these things...

    There is everything to love about this book. The humor, the sexiness, the emotion that seeped through every single one of its pages. I love a good sports romance, and there's something about hockey boys that just does me in. Stick a fork in me. Maria's characters are off the charts ama...

    I dare you - DARE YOU- not to fall in love with both Jackson and Holly Carter. It will be more difficult than eating only one potato chip from an open bag, or not staring at a shirtless Channing Tatum. Because this couple? Damn. This is love at its finest. This book shows you that ther...

    Jackson and Holly Carter's story was a great way to close out the Blades series. I have read every single one of Maria's books and every single time she surprises me with how she gets me right in the feels. The whole first chapter gutted me. Starting like that, I knew it was going ...

    I loved Jackson and Holly! It?s not often that a couple that?s been together for a long time and then gets divorced is one that a reader wants back together and roots for them. It?s refreshing that the reason they divorced wasn?t because of bad behavior on either partner?s pa...

    Puck it up This is a story about a couple who divorced a year or two ago but should never have done it. I never really understood why either but they are still in love with each other and have not moved on. I loved that. Both had been celibate. Very unusual since the hero is a hocke...

    OMG!!! Maria writes these characters like a true life biography of two people who are so much more than black ink on a page. Holly and Jackson 2nd chance has a unique twist because these two were already married but such as life got in between. I knew I wasn't putting this book down...

    What can I say about Body Check by Maria Luis? This book wrecked me over and over. It pulled me in from the very first line and kept it's claws in me until the very end. Holly and Jackson's story is a poignant tale of two people who are meant to be, but because of life, they part ways ...

    This one looks love that failed... failed for many reasons on both sides of the relationship. So much dedication put in on both sides, but sometimes when struggles happen one assumes the other knows and the other just fails to see what is right in front of their face. Real true honest ...

    This is the book that actually drew me to this series as I am a lover of the second chance romance. Holly and Jackson were married for 11 years...and now they're not. What happened? How did they get here? When an opportunity arises to bring them closer again Jackson grabs it, but he...

    I am a huge Maria Luis fan, and her books never cease to amaze me. This one had all the feels, a story about true soulmates finding their way back to each other. Jackson is the captain of the Blades Hockey team and Holly is his ex-wife photographer. These two met in college and married...

    Jackson wasn't a bad husband. He was good down to his core; always wanting to help others, to help me, but in living withing his shadow for so many years, I became a returning secondary character on the Jackson Carter Show, simply known as "the wife." --Holly 4.5 stars! I've been ...

    ?He kisses me like he plays hockey: with every last corner of his soul.? Wow. For such an amazing rom-com queen, this latest work from Luis is surprisingly profound and deep, dealing with some pretty spectacular devastation. With their first chance laying in tattered ruins, it appe...

    3.5 Stars What I liked - The chemistry and sexiness was strong because of their true real love for one another. It wasn't just a lust thing, which would have made it empty and gross to me. The love made the sexual spark. It wasn't sex that evolved into a relationship. I rarely like ...

    I?ve been waiting for this book since the very first sneak peak was released and I have to say, my expectations were blown out of the water! This is not your typical sports romance novel where our heroine falls in love with a big shot hockey star. This novel is a story about secon...

    This book was absolutely fantastic! SO. MANY. FEELS. This book tells the story of Jackson and Holly and their marriage, divorce and reconciliation. It's full of laugh out loud moments, steamy scenes, and some heartwrenching emotions. I love the way Maria Luis weaves all of these things...

    There is everything to love about this book. The humor, the sexiness, the emotion that seeped through every single one of its pages. I love a good sports romance, and there's something about hockey boys that just does me in. Stick a fork in me. Maria's characters are off the charts ama...

    I dare you - DARE YOU- not to fall in love with both Jackson and Holly Carter. It will be more difficult than eating only one potato chip from an open bag, or not staring at a shirtless Channing Tatum. Because this couple? Damn. This is love at its finest. This book shows you that ther...

    Jackson and Holly Carter's story was a great way to close out the Blades series. I have read every single one of Maria's books and every single time she surprises me with how she gets me right in the feels. The whole first chapter gutted me. Starting like that, I knew it was going ...

    What happens when two people stop talking, they fall apart. What happens when they decide to be honest with themselves and each other- Perfection and that?s Body Check!! I love Holly & Jackson so much!!! This book gave me all the feels!! These characters have history! But Mari...

    I loved Jackson and Holly! It?s not often that a couple that?s been together for a long time and then gets divorced is one that a reader wants back together and roots for them. It?s refreshing that the reason they divorced wasn?t because of bad behavior on either partner?s pa...

    Puck it up This is a story about a couple who divorced a year or two ago but should never have done it. I never really understood why either but they are still in love with each other and have not moved on. I loved that. Both had been celibate. Very unusual since the hero is a hocke...

    Short Review: Rom-Com. Second chance romance. Really attractive and foul-mouthed hockey players, testosterone in industrial quantities. Jackson is a bad boy, but deep down he is a romantic. Holly is strong, successful, determined. Scenes of graphic sex. HEA, not cliffhanger. Although ...

    I have been waiting for this book since Hat Trick. Holly and Jackson made appearances in there and dropped hints about their story. I knew it would be interesting and emotional, but I wasn't expecting it to be so very funny, too! We come into the story when Jackson is facing some majo...

    OMG!!! Maria writes these characters like a true life biography of two people who are so much more than black ink on a page. Holly and Jackson 2nd chance has a unique twist because these two were already married but such as life got in between. I knew I wasn't putting this book down...

    What can I say about Body Check by Maria Luis? This book wrecked me over and over. It pulled me in from the very first line and kept it's claws in me until the very end. Holly and Jackson's story is a poignant tale of two people who are meant to be, but because of life, they part ways ...

    This one looks love that failed... failed for many reasons on both sides of the relationship. So much dedication put in on both sides, but sometimes when struggles happen one assumes the other knows and the other just fails to see what is right in front of their face. Real true honest ...

    This is the book that actually drew me to this series as I am a lover of the second chance romance. Holly and Jackson were married for 11 years...and now they're not. What happened? How did they get here? When an opportunity arises to bring them closer again Jackson grabs it, but he...

    Body Check A Boston Blades Novel Maria Luis Holly is the ex-Mrs Jackson Carter. The two dance around trying to be friends and work together on occasion. Chemistry was never their problem, they simply grew apart and focussed on their own things. This doesn?t mean that both don?t ...

    OMG!!! Maria writes these characters like a true life biography of two people who are so much more than black ink on a page. Holly and Jackson 2nd chance has a unique twist because these two were already married but such as life got in between. I knew I wasn't putting this book down...

    What can I say about Body Check by Maria Luis? This book wrecked me over and over. It pulled me in from the very first line and kept it's claws in me until the very end. Holly and Jackson's story is a poignant tale of two people who are meant to be, but because of life, they part ways ...

    This one looks love that failed... failed for many reasons on both sides of the relationship. So much dedication put in on both sides, but sometimes when struggles happen one assumes the other knows and the other just fails to see what is right in front of their face. Real true honest ...

    I don't know if I ever loved a fictional romance as much as I did this one! To all my GR friends, PLEASE pick this one up PRONTO ladies!!! This is a story about Holly & Jackson who were in love & married for 11 years, but with Jackson putting his Hockey career & team fi...

    Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review: Body Check is an incredible, heart-melting, sizzling effing HOT second chance romance with heat, sparks, and ALL the glorious feels! Maria Luis brought me to my knees with her newest hockey romance. Out of all her books, this one made me sigh th...

    Update 29/9/18 One thing that REALLY bugged me up until the 18 chapters, which I didn?t identify until I slept on it which I feel like I should add here. It may not bug other readers and others actually might like the fact. Heroine pretty much sacrificed her whole life for hero an...

    Even if I don?t agree of reason for the divorce (11 years of marriage) and for feeling like heroine resented her husband?s successful career (that?s how I felt from her a couple of times in the book) and I think the problem was miscommunication (something I really disliked in boo...

    I am a huge Maria Luis fan, and her books never cease to amaze me. This one had all the feels, a story about true soulmates finding their way back to each other. Jackson is the captain of the Blades Hockey team and Holly is his ex-wife photographer. These two met in college and married...

    Jackson wasn't a bad husband. He was good down to his core; always wanting to help others, to help me, but in living withing his shadow for so many years, I became a returning secondary character on the Jackson Carter Show, simply known as "the wife." --Holly 4.5 stars! I've been ...

    This book was absolutely fantastic! SO. MANY. FEELS. This book tells the story of Jackson and Holly and their marriage, divorce and reconciliation. It's full of laugh out loud moments, steamy scenes, and some heartwrenching emotions. I love the way Maria Luis weaves all of these things...

    There is everything to love about this book. The humor, the sexiness, the emotion that seeped through every single one of its pages. I love a good sports romance, and there's something about hockey boys that just does me in. Stick a fork in me. Maria's characters are off the charts ama...

    Jackson and Holly Carter's story was a great way to close out the Blades series. I have read every single one of Maria's books and every single time she surprises me with how she gets me right in the feels. The whole first chapter gutted me. Starting like that, I knew it was going ...

    I loved Jackson and Holly! It?s not often that a couple that?s been together for a long time and then gets divorced is one that a reader wants back together and roots for them. It?s refreshing that the reason they divorced wasn?t because of bad behavior on either partner?s pa...

    There is everything to love about this book. The humor, the sexiness, the emotion that seeped through every single one of its pages. I love a good sports romance, and there's something about hockey boys that just does me in. Stick a fork in me. Maria's characters are off the charts ama...

    I loved Jackson and Holly! It?s not often that a couple that?s been together for a long time and then gets divorced is one that a reader wants back together and roots for them. It?s refreshing that the reason they divorced wasn?t because of bad behavior on either partner?s pa...

    OMG!!! Maria writes these characters like a true life biography of two people who are so much more than black ink on a page. Holly and Jackson 2nd chance has a unique twist because these two were already married but such as life got in between. I knew I wasn't putting this book down...

    What can I say about Body Check by Maria Luis? This book wrecked me over and over. It pulled me in from the very first line and kept it's claws in me until the very end. Holly and Jackson's story is a poignant tale of two people who are meant to be, but because of life, they part ways ...
