Face Off by Lisa B. Kamps


FACE OFF – The Baltimore Banners Book 10


Will one night of passion tear their friendship apart…or bring them closer together?

Ethan Kincaid is relaxed and laid back, a gentleman winger for the Baltimore Banners. His play on the ice–and off–is fast, furious, and unstoppable. He’s never met a challenge he couldn’t overcome–except when it comes to the one woman he really wants. Is he willing to risk the treasured friendship for one week of passion? Is it possible for that passion to lead to something else?

Cindy Miller’s life is spinning out of control, dragging her into a darkness she doesn’t understand. The only constant is her unexpected friendship with Ethan, a friendship she doesn’t want to lose–a friendship that turned into something more for one unforgettable week. But how can she let the passion continue when she knows her life is about to change forever–and when she knows Ethan deserves so much more?

One week changed the course of both their lives, putting them on a path neither expected. Is their friendship strong enough to withstand the changes–and the challenges? And will another night pull them closer together–or pull them apart for good?

Review by Christine:
Face Off by Lisa B. Kamps is a deeply emotional tale that plucks a reader’s heartstrings. This is the 10th installment in Lisa’s Baltimore Banners series but a completely fresh story. Warning: there isn’t a whole lot of hockey in this story so if that’s a hang up for you ~ you are now advised ~ but this story is so much more than a traditional hockey romance. Cindy Miller found a small taste of happiness on a white sand beach with the deepest blue eyes of a handsome hockey player. Ethan Kincaid, a defenceman for the Banners, makes the riskiest play of them all, for Cindy’s heart. Risking their friendship could hurt both of them but not taking the chance could destroy them.

Wow, I have learned never to underestimate Lisa’s writing. 10 stories later in this series and we’ve got a completely original story with the perfect amount of angst and emotional attachment to these characters. The chemistry between Cindy & Ethan is off the charts and you can’t help but long for these two to have their happily ever after. I can’t wait for the next installment of the Banner men. I’m hoping Corbin story is next ~ fingers crossed! 5 Stars for Face Off by Lisa B. Kamps

Lisa B. Kamps is the author of the best-selling series The Baltimore Banners, featuring “hard-hitting, heart-melting hockey players” [USA Today], on and off the ice. Her Firehouse Fourteen series features hot and heroic firefighters who put more than their lives on the line. She’s introduced a whole new team of hot hockey players who play hard and love even harder in her newest series, The York Bombers.

In a previous life, she worked as a firefighter with the Baltimore County Fire Department then did a very brief (and not very successful) stint at bartending in east Baltimore, and finally served as the Director of Retail Operations for a busy Civil War non-profit.

Lisa currently lives in Maryland with her husband and two sons (who are mostly sorta-kinda out of the house), one very spoiled Border Collie, two cats with major attitude, several head of cattle, and entirely too many chickens to count. When she’s not busy writing or chasing animals, she’s cheering loudly for her favorite hockey team, the Washington Capitals–or going through withdrawal and waiting for October to roll back around!
