I like Liz Crowe s writing style I like her use of different points of view in relation to the same event I find it very effective.I do not mind the time gaps, as generally they are justified the author just cuts to the chase by focusing on the relevant events in her story.Having said that, I felt this was the weakest story in the series, with regard to the plot and to the main characters, in so far as their choices simply did not make any sense and were not consistent with the events being presented I nearly stopped reading at 77% when things were simply too illogical and unrealistic Quite frankly, if someone is that stupid, they deserve everything they get and I simply cannot find any points of interest in their situation, let alone empathising and sympathising with them I did carry on and finished the book but I thought that it continued in the same vein, and I could not comprehend the turn in the groupie s behaviour either.The whole story felt disjointed and forced into a set path formula.Therefore, I am really, really sorry, but for me this novel was just about OK. This review contains some minor spoilers This story starts off following the lives of Emily, a media consultant for the Black Jacks soccer team and Declan, a star player than came over to play after leaving Scotland.I didn t find this to be your typical romance book There was very little angst, and the main characters didn t get together until the very end for a HEA For goodness sake, most of the book you didn t even know that these characters might want to be together There was the occasional though here and there about how one of the characters had a brief though about the other, but that was it.Emily starts off marries, finds out her husband has been cheating on her, so she cheats on him as well Okay Nothing like a little revenge sex They get a divorce view spoiler not actually hide spoiler I ve readthan 2 dozen of Ms Crowe s books and always look forward to her new work.Some readers look for certain topics such as sexy hot males, sexy hot males in sports, soccer, relationship angst, etc Hat Trick has all of that andThis is book four of the Black Jack Gentlemen series and is an excellent addition to the previous books The author writes about everyday experiences but gives the story a special twist that keeps the reader intrigued The players on this soccer expansion team in Detroit seem to have an overabundance of testosterone, leading to hot tempers and even hotter competition.Declan MacGuire how can you not love that name , has moved to the states to be the new forward, after the loss of his fianc It is unusual for someone to be so aware of their shortcomings and make such an effort to overcome them Declan knows he has to focus on practice, games, workouts, etc to keep his temper in check He has some MAJOR anger management issues and there are times when he loses control, and yet that buildup is essential in his game.Emily Keller, who works for the BJG PR office, enjoys the view of the players practicing and is attracted to Declan, but she is married You find out fairly quickly that her marriage is not working but she has a daughter to consider There was very little to like about her wealthy husband Marcus but he does love his daughter He seemed to enjoy pushing and pulling Emily one way and then another throughout the book and I wanted to whack him upside the head I believed that they did love one another but some relationships just can t be saved.Declan saw Cassandra Dean at a party and fell in love I couldn t stand her and the various things she did and Declan just couldn t see her for what she was His team members tried to talk to him about her, but it just made him angry I recall fussing out loud as I read anything to do with her There are so many wonderfully compelling scenes in this book and some that are so heartbreaking I don t want to give away too much but Ms Crowe writes so beautifully and keeps you entertained where you can t help but turn the pages faster and faster She pulls you into the story and you feel the deep emotions of the characters I love her Stewart Realty series and there are some very slight references to some of the characters but not anything where you would be lost I like reading a series as there are usually some references to, and interactions with, previous characters, and it is always great to see how their lives are progressing The BJG team began with Jack Gordon, the main character in many of the Stewart Realty books, and that brings back many happy and bittersweet memories for me You can t go wrong with any of Liz Crowe s books and Hat Trick is another great addition to her work She always includes plenty of sexy, sensual scenes which I like, and they move the story forward and aren t gratuitous She has her own captivating type of writing and just cannot write a regular HEA She makes you care about the characters and then sometimes there is a big BAM, and something major happens, your breath catches and your heart breaks Then she manages to pull you back in again and, even though the story may not go the way you expect, you can t help but like the new road, with new surprises and twists The ending to this story is just perfection She likes to provide a story that isreal life and I love it I can get a fairytale anytime I want, but I enjoy reading stories that aretrue to life, with all of the issues we all live through. I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked ReadsThis is the fourth in the series and you could read it as a standalone, but would enjoy it evenif you had some of teh other characters backgrounds This was the toughest read for me and it took so many turns that I really didn t know how it would work out It follows two characters who are attracted to each other, but just not at that place in their lives, and seemingly never will be It deals with some very difficult issues, in a forthright and direct manner, which I found refreshing Ms Crowe is a talented author who is not afraid to push boundaries, and make the reader think This series has definitely achieved that so far for me I hope there areto come. 3 StarsI m actually torn about this book I liked itthan the last two in this series, but I still had a lot of issues with it The books have a LOT in common unprotected sex with just about every woman they meet, unexpected pregnancy, someone injured, men making stupid choices they know they shouldn t, HUGE time jumps, missing important events in main characters lives , however, they also have overall differences that happen I would say the author has a lot of promise because although there is a lot of similar things between books, I still found myself reading I almost hated both main characters because they were just stupid They made choices they both knew weren t smart and then kept with them for years even if they knew they were bad ones and made them miserable Simply, I d like to see some surprises get away from the same things. Sure they come in different orders and from different angles, but still, they are all essentially the same and I saw all of them coming from a looooong way away I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads. Hat Trick was another great Liz Crowe book I was lucky enough to beta read it and I can t say enough good things about Liz books I think I have read nearly every one she has written.But be warned readers, Liz books aren t for the faint of heart If you are looking for perfectly glowing over the top fantasy romance you are in the wrong place Her realism is what I love most about her books Sometimes her scenes are so real that you actually feel the gut wrenching pain or intense joy right along with the character and I am a total junkie for books like that.Hat Trick does not disappoint Hat Trick, like other books in this series deals with some real life issues sports celebrities face I laughed, I cried, I wanted to throat punch a particular WAG and I was ecstatic by the end of the book. This was my first book that I have read of author Liz Crowe and her writing style is unique from other books I have read I enjoy reading the point of views of the two main characters It was like reading two stories at once that overlapped each other Each of the main characters have their ups and downs that they are dealing with on their own and through the story they haveandover lap of interaction between them I found myself hurting when the characters were hurting and hoped when they here hopeful I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading the previous books in this series and the upcoming ones as well. As Liz Crowe books always draw me in, this is no exception Declan Emily will take you for a ride and bring you into their relationship I could not put it down and always wantof what Liz writes It was amazing as is the entire Black Jack Gentlemen series which you will enjoy just as much, SO ENJOY AND READ Hat Trick is the fourth book in The Black Jack Gentlemen Series by Liz Crowe Liz did it again with another wonderfully written book with great characters and drama and angst I stayed up late into the night reading because I didn t want to put the book down I certainly hope she writes another book in this series because I am not ready to leave these characters yet.
