“Stacey Lynn always knows how to perfectly balance sexy and sweet.”—New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne
Hooked on Her, an all-new fun and flirty forbidden romance from Stacey Lynn is out now!
4 Perfect Timing Crowns
This is book 3 in Stacey’s Ice King Series, I am going to preface this by saying I have not read the other 2 this is my first book by her. Stacey has created magic with this, Tessa and Jason were amazing together and the storyline was seamless. You are pulled immediately into it from the first page and you get lost to the characters along the way.
Silly girl. If I can chase a puck flying a hundred miles across the ice she has to know I can chase—and catch—her too.
Tessa has gone through a lot over the last few years. Her ex-fiancé ended up not being anything like how she thought he was and he destroyed her and her trust in more ways than I think even she realized. After all this she goes to see her brother Sawyer who plays with the Ice Kings and he just so happens to be best friends with Jason her long time crush! Tessa even after everything she’s been through she’s trying to figure out her life and what she actually want’s now that she’s no longer with her fiancé.
The only thing that bothered me about her is that she talks about how she’s been in love with Jason since she was 17 and she dreams about him all the time but never actually thought he could like her or want to be with her. I absolutely get this, especially if you fought epically all the time with your crush, I wouldn’t think he’d like me either. However, after Jason makes it clear that he wants to be with her; she pushes him away and is super standoffish and doesn’t believe him and doesn’t know if she wants to be with him. I would think that after the way she talked about being in love with him, when he finally confesses to wanting to be with her, she would be with him. I understand being scared because her fiancé broke her heart, but she was over that relationship long before it actually ended. So this felt like trying to make drama where it wasn’t necessary.
“Jesus,” she whispers and I laugh. And I think she means God, so I tell her I’d prefer if she called me that which earns a soft laugh from her.
Jason is amazing he has the biggest heart and he is so understanding when it comes to Tessa. But he also is super impatient because he’s been waiting forever for her and so he’s all gung ho with trying to get her to see him as more. He had me laughing and swooning during legit the whole book. Jason is the guy that knows what he wants and goes for it 100% and he wants Tessa. He doesn’t play fair and while Tessa tries to keep some distance between them, Jason is there every step of the way blocking those plans.
“You should really warn a girl you’re prancing around almost naked in your own apartment. It’s a hazard.”
Overall, I enjoyed this story. This is definitely a fun light read with not a lot of angst involved. Jason and Tessa were amazing together. I do wish there was more closure with her ex-fiancé but this story will keep you entertained throughout.

Tessa Chauncy is the best kind of trouble. Beautiful, sweet and completely off limits. I’ve sat by and watched other men drool after her and forced myself to stay in check. Hey, I’m in the NHL… I have self-control in spades.
Except when it comes to her.
With the bat of her lashes and quick whip of that sharply pointed tongue Tessa can knock grown men to their knees. I’ve seen them wither and crumble under her confident stare— something I’m pretty sure she learned from sparring with me, thankyouverymuch.
But I’m not just falling for her. I’m down for the count.
She’s the girl I wanted, when wanting her was wrong.
She’s also my new roommate–
And oh yeah, my best friend’s little sister.
Heaven help me, I’m probably going to get his fist to my face or his hockey stick shoved in very dangerous places for what I’m about to do, but I don’t think I care anymore.
I’m in love with my best friend’s little sister….and I’m done waiting.

I scoop more chicken onto a folded chunk of naan and moan as I savor the taste. There are some decent restaurants where I live, all within walking distance, which is a bonus, but none are as good as Tandor’s. I can’t even piece together what makes it so delicious but it’s mouth-watering amazing.
“Jesus, Tessa. Can you not sound like you’re having an orgasm when you eat?”
I choke on my chicken and wash it down with my water. “Don’t like it, you can leave.”
“But then I won’t be able to share with you why I’m here.”
The chicken I’ve devoured rolls in my stomach. Obviously it’s not because he’s a nice guy. I lean back in my chair. “What is it?”
He huffs a laugh and I hate he looks so damn good, smirking at me, shaking his head like I’m some amusing little thing.
“You’re cute, Tessa. I ever tell you that?”
“I think the day you took me to get stitches in my head, yeah. You bopped me on the nose with a finger and said ‘cute and tough, nice’ before ignoring me the rest of the weekend.”
I’m mortified with myself. He’s not supposed to know these things, know how much I remember every.single.encounter with him ever.
His mouth opens a bit and he stares at me. Yeah. That dose of word vomit probably surprises the hell out of him too. But hell, in for a penny. He says he doesn’t give a shit about what Sawyer thinks? He should know what I think.
“I’m pretty sure that’s the day I started having a crush on you.”
He doesn’t take his eyes off me as he chews on what I think is chicken tikki masala. Slowly, he swallows and sets his own fork down. Leaning forward, elbows on the table, I’m tempted to drop my gaze to his mouth and watch his full lips move so sexily as he opens his mouth and asks, “Want to know when it started for me? When I started facing the reality that it was my best friend’s little sister that made my dick hard in my dreams at night and when I was on the road?”
