Review by Christine:
Las Vegas Sidewinders: Toli & Tessa by Kat Mizera is the latest installment in her hockey series and brings us the wedding of Tessa & Toli and all that ensues after it. This series should be read in order to really enjoy the complexity of the characters and the ongoing story but at the least “Anatoli” Book 4 should be read before this one.
Toli couldn’t be happier to marry Tessa, he planned the entire day down to the smallest detail so when his plans turn upside down he needs to know why which means returning to his homeland. Tessa loves her husband and wants to meet his family but everything is moving so fast her head is spinning. Once on Russian soil it seems to Tessa that Toli is acting completely different and cold towards her which makes her question why the change and what is going on?
One thing I love about this series is the crazy things that happen to the characters. When you least expect it, bam you’ll get a twist and turn you didn’t see coming. Tessa & Toli burn up the page again and it’s hard not to need a cold shower reading these two together. My only fault with this novel was Tessa’s over reaction to an event and the rehashing of said event. Did this ruin the book for me? No way. Kat’s series is by far one of the most original hockey romances you will ever read. 4 Stars for Las Vegas Sidewinders: Toli & Tessa by Kat Mizera
