But his grades need to get better asap - or else! Enter Ellie. A nerdy friend of his brother. Ellie is only 19, but has been at Moo U since she was 15. She's a genius.

Why can't we get all the drama out of the way before we get serious. But anyway. It was cute and funny and sparky and sexy and nerdy and emotional and collegy and hockey-y. I liked it! The most drama comes from not having a clear plan for their future - both of them. Ellie's mom wants her to be a doctor. But Ellie does not want that. Patrick's dad wants him to go Pro asap - but he wants to get his degree first. It'll be a while until that happy end - but the reader enjoys the journey! ☺ I really liked it in the end. I could read these kinds of books every day for the rest of eternity! I also wouldn't mind seeing this whole world on Netflix one day! Can't wait to get more Vermont soon! OVERTIME was an adorable + sexy hockey-y + college-y romance! I loved reading it! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Patrick - he'll be sold out in no time! 💜 💜

Ellie McGinn at nineteen years old has already spent few years at the college, studying and getting three degrees, but now she wants to live a bit more, to know the world outside her books, making her own choices and maybe some mistakes too, without her mother overbearing presence. They meet at a party, they feel a weird connection as soon as their eyes meet, but will they have time to start a relationship? Or do they have already too much on their plates they couldn’t afford it? I liked Patrick and Ellie, their connection and deep chemistry is instantly clear but they are so different and they have so much pressure on them that is really hard to just enjoy themselves. They are a very sweet couple and I cheered and supported them from beginning to end. I was so surprised to see a significant shift in Patrick’s behavior, he liked the parties and the girls but fortunately he also understood that is the right moment to change your path when something so much better than that arrives in your life. Overtime is a standalone book but I suggest you to also get Paxton’s story in Gametime. Copy kindly provided by the Publisher/Author.

I love that Ellie is not the shy, stuck in her dorm room type of genius girl - she gets out there, and isn't always all "why are you with me?" - though with Patrick's reputation it would have been expected. Inexperienced? Sure but not completely clueless. I love their insta-connection and they are just adorably cute. I love seeing a man-whore come to his knees when he finds the right woman, and that is the deal with Patrick. I still had some issues coming over from the first book, Gametime, and they still frustrated and made me want to DNF this book, but I kept going and am glad I finished this one. I still hate hate hate Patrick's dad with the passion of a million fiery suns, but I am glad the twins dealt with that. And what is with allll the parents being a-holes to their kids and pushing their agenda on them? Ellie's mum was the same and I wanted to throw her in with Patrick's dad - though she did eventually get better. Eventually. So while it was better, it still was not one of my favourites in the Moo U series.

    Overtime is the fifth book in the Moo U series, but it does work as a standalone. There’s no need to read any other book before this one to enjoy it. Having said that, I loved reading Ellie’s story. She initially showed up in Heartland, so it’s really cool to see her again a bit older and ready to break out of her shell. And see a bit of Dylan Shipley and Chastity too.

There’s no need to read any other book before this one to enjoy it. Having said that, I loved reading Ellie’s story. She initially showed up in Heartland, so it’s really cool to see her again a bit older and ready to break out of her shell. And see a bit of Dylan Shipley and Chastity too. I love the need-tutoring trope and it worked pretty well for this story at the beginning, but it was not developed enough in my opinion. Patrick is a party boy and the captain of the hockey team, and his grades are getting him in trouble. He’s been drafted and has to decide if he wants to go pro or finish his degree, but to continue playing he needs to improve his grades. Ellie is a “genius” and at 19, she already has two degrees and is working on her Master’s, so she becomes his statistics tutor. Their study sessions are soon forgotten though. I liked Patrick so much more than I thought I would after Gametime, but it’s not really surprising considering two different authors wrote them. He’s starting to grow up emotionally and he’s really sweet and charming, especially with Ellie. They have a special connection since they first met, and it’s really interesting to see that connection and their relationship grow. I really loved Ellie. She’s 19 years old and has spent all her life trying to please her parents by living up to their expectations and her own intellectual prowess. But she’s never been allowed to just be a kid and later a college student and have fun and friends. Her only attempted rebellion did not work out for her and now she’s struggling with what to do with her future. Patrick and Ellie are completely different but they do have a major thing in common, and that’s their relationship with their parents. Patrick’s dad is an abusive douche who treats him like a commodity and puts too much pressure on him to go pro because of money and his own interests. Ellie’s mother is not abusive but she is overbearing and controlling, and is putting too much pressure on her “to libe up to her potential” and become an MD, the dream she had to give up when she was young. So they both have toxic relationships with their parents, and that is something that allows them to understand each other on a deeper level. And that connection allows them to support each other in being true to themselves. I really loved reading Overtime. It’s a great hockey romance with a lot of emotional turmoil and feeling, where hockey plays an important role, and will give you all the feels. It’s sweet, romantic and there’s a lot of steam. I highly recommend it.

It’s finally time for the playboy of Moo U to find the love of his life!! Between you and me, I was not expecting to love this novel as much as I did! Kat Mizera stole a piece of my heart somewhere in the middle of reading Overtime. The chemistry between Patrick and Ellie was FIRE!! I loved every exquisite moment! Patrick is the playboy of the series. He’s never had problems getting the ladies right where he wants them. But lately, things haven’t been exciting as they once were and he chalks it up to wanting what his twin brother, Paxton, has. He wants someone to love him for him and not for his hockey status. And at a party is where he locked eyes with a woman who gave him everything he wanted. With one single glance he found himself intrigued for the first time in a long time. I loved watching Patrick change his partying ways and settle down. Ellie isn’t your typical run of the mill college girl. I loved her vibes throughout this novel. She’s a legit genius and started college in her early teens. Now she’s nineteen years old and she’s looking back at her young years with sadness. She never had the chance to experience all the things a normal teenager would experience. She let her education, her drive to be the best, and her mother run her life. Now she wants to live her life as a young woman should be able to live it. She wants to make mistakes, fall in love, and harbor physical and emotional connections. She wants to experience life at it’s fullest and when she sets her sights on Patrick at a college party, she sees the man she’s going to experience everything within Patrick….. They just don’t know it yet. In the Moo U series, Ellie is one of my favorite characters! I loved her personality. She’s funny and playful but also serious when need be. She’s young and she’s on her way to being carefree. I loved how she stuck to her dreams and the life direction she wanted to go in. Seeing her stand up for herself, especially to her parents, was what kept me coming back for more… and let’s not forget the scorching sexy lessons Mr. Patrick Graham gives Ellie…. Holy hell, there were times I had to set my kindle down and walk away.. The igniting chemistry was something that couldn’t be missed, between and out of the sheets. I loved these two… And then something happened, and what was once a five star rating dropped to a four star. And this is based solely on reader preference, but once again, we had a rockstar relationship with epic communication skills, I was in love over this romance, and then the story reached it’s climatic peak and in came the sudden lack of communication moment…. WHY!? These two had the potential to be on my top three list.. Lesson of the day, communication is the key to every healthy relationship. And the second reason for why I dropped a star in my rating is simple, my heart broke for Ellie and her situation. I wish that heartbreaking moment would have been discussed more between Ellie and Patrick. I wanted that emotional connection over a heartbreaking situation, but I felt the moment was here and gone in the blink of an eye. Overall, I really did love this novel, aside from the few moments listed above. I loved the chemistry, the bond, and the relationship. I usually find myself feeling cringy when it comes to insta-love type novels, and I’m thrilled to report, the cringe did not enter my mind!! If you love opposites attract type novels, I highly recommend you check out Overtime by Kat Mizera!!! ________________ Find me here: The Staircase Reader Instagram Facebook Twitterv

Bar none. Take the hero who “gets around” and turn him into a puppy dog for love, and you’ve found the romance catnip for many a romance reader (this one included). In her contribution to the Moo U world, Kat Mizera has done that well. Her story, Overtime, tells the story of the second half of the Graham twins, Patrick “Trick.” If you’ve read any of the Moo U stories, then you know Sir Graham, Patrick to you, is $exually promiscuous. In Jami Davenport’s Gametime which follows Patrick’s twin brother, Paxton, one would say that Patrick is $exually prolific given his penchant for multiple partners in the bedroom. To take that type of character and turn him into a dreamy, swoony hero for a virgin, no less, is difficult, and yet, Mizera has written Patrick so well that, by the book’s end, you don’t even recognize him. It is that which lends its power to the genius of Overtime. This story follows Patrick in his third year. Already drafted to the Sidewinders in Vegas, Patrick is pressured by his father to “turn pro” after his current year. However, Patrick wants his college degree, and he’s unsure if he should stay another year or become a pro. Add to that a condition for playing hockey from his coach: get your grades above a B or you’ll be benched. Knowing that Patrick struggles with the focus of school, his twin, Paxton, finds him a tutor. Ellie is a nineteen-year old graduate student, having already completed two undergraduate programs. Her mother is pressuring this genius to go to medical school, but Ellie knows that isn’t a good fit for her. However, her existing graduate program is unappealing the longer she’s enrolled in it. One night, trying to “act her age,” she’s enticed to a party at the hockey house where she catches the eye of Patrick. She doesn’t know who he is, but these two are instantly drawn to each other. When the cops raid the hockey house, given that Ellie is underage, Patrick helps her escape, and they are separated. When Paxton introduces the tutor to Patrick the next day, it turns out to be Ellie. From their meeting, these two are kindred, with parents whose expectations are too high for their children. The initial issue with Patrick and Ellie is her innocence. Yet, as they grow to know each other, Ellie realizes she wants Patrick to teach her everything he knows. Even more, Ellie becomes the grounding force in Patrick’s life. The problem, though, is Patrick may be leaving in four months. Is a relationship between these two even possible? Will Patrick ask Ellie to go with him to Vegas, or is she set to have her heart broken? While I struggled with Jami Davenport’s Gametime, Paxton’s story, I found myself “all in” to Patrick’s journey. Mizera finds a way to make this man-ho loveable. She writes traits into him that readers haven’t seen in earlier stories. Ellie, Mizera’s heroine, is insightful, mature, and straightforward. She is perfectly suited to Patrick who needs a heroine who isn’t with him for his fame, prestige, and future. She sees to the heart of Patrick, and she’s intelligent in her response to him. As their story progresses, complications arise, and Ellie makes choices that belie her age. Yet, Mizera is careful in allowing Ellie to sit in that while she and Patrick figure out their happy ending. If I had any criticism, it would be that the story can sometimes feel repetitive as Patrick and Ellie vacillate in their feelings over the future. There were moments when I thought we didn’t need to be reminded so much of their plight. With that said, though, Mizera does deliver them out of their issues, and the solution is appropriate for their situation. After reading Kat Mizera’s Overtime, you will end the book wanting even more of Patrick and Ellie. Again, there is nothing better than the journey of a hero who realizes he can actually be more than he thought, especially when he finds the love of his life.

I totally forgot that this was an Ellie I already knew, so bonus fun for anyone who is a fan of the True North series. (but you don’t miss out on anything if you haven’t read about her already) I did not expect to love Patrick as much as I did! He was the twin I was less excited about, and after reading Gametime, I was even less excited. Honestly? This Patrick and that Patrick didn’t match up quite as well, but that can happen with different authors. Basically if you chose to read Paxton’s book first, he’s better than you’ll expect. And if you didn’t, don’t worry you didn’t miss anything significant as far as Patrick is concerned. Patrick was surprisingly sweet, devoted, and loving. I loved the way he embraced these new feelings for Ellie, and really connected with her. He was always trying to do what he thought was best (even to his detriment). I expected a bit more struggle from his grades, but that was shoved to the background pretty early…bit bummed about that, but that was kind of because his sensitivity about his grades was built up in Paxton’s book. It was fun to see Ellie a couple years older, getting more comfortable in her skin, and struggling with growing up in a “genius” environment. She was a perfect balance of smart and achieving mixed with “she’s still only 19 years old, and forced to grow up too early.” She had some really interesting battles to fight with her Mother, and I kind of wanted her Mom to get a clue earlier than she did. In a way it made her Mom’s turnaround a bit less believable, b/c she fought so hard and unreasonably before then. But it was an interesting thing for Ellie to be dealing with. I loved how forthright and adventurous Ellie could be — she may not have had the experience, but she was all in when presented with the opportunity. And they were super cute together! I loved that there was a balance between the lust/steam factor, and the funny/sweet/hanging out moments. I really felt their connection, even if it was fast. I wanted them to figure things out. I will admit that the hemming and hawing over how they were going to make it work went on a bit longer than I’d like…it’s the difference between 4 and 4.5 for me. I think I needed incremental steps instead of constant denial that there was a compromise/solution. It was interesting to see what is likely cameos from Ms. Mizera’s other series in this book. I have a feeling fans are going to love it. It was *almost* too much, but I really loved the advice they gave, *especially* Renee. So yeah, this was a super pleasant surprise! I love it when books take all my expectations and throw them out the window and give me exactly what I didn’t know I needed.

    She reminded me of old-fashioned ice cream sundaes and drive-in movies, which made no fucking sense, but that's what came to mind when I looked at her. This specific trope is one that, if done poorly, I find so incredibly unrealistic. Kat Mizera though--she hit it out of the park. Sometimes authors just capture that one specific moment where the two main love interests have a single interaction and you can FEEL their spark. The energy. The connection. That's how I felt with Patrick and Ellie. I h She reminded me of old-fashioned ice cream sundaes and drive-in movies, which made no fucking sense, but that's what came to mind when I looked at her.

That's how I felt with Patrick and Ellie. I honestly don't even know how to explain it other than I knew it was going to be a good book even just based on this one interaction. I was especially nervous because Paxton's book wasn't my favorite and Patrick was kind of a dick in that one and that one just wasn't my favorite in general. Unsurprisingly we saw a totally different Patrick in this story. I loved how straight up smitten he was with Ellie--so cute. I also loved watching her being able to experience life. I can't even image what it would have been like to go to college at that young of an age all the while have that much of an overbearing mother. It was clear that she loved Ellie and wanted the best for her but...sometimes parents want very different things for their children than what they actually need. The fact that Ellie eventually just took charge and made some big decisions for herself was great. (Also loved the support she got from the WAGs from the Vegas team). I was also so relieved that the twins finally cut their asshole dad off at the end. My heart hurt for them SO BADLY. Good riddance. Overall, great addition to the Moo U series!

After having a pretty rough fall semester, Patrick knows he has to step up his game academically to remain on the team. No more partying and hooking up all the time. He needs to focus. And his brother, Pax, has the name of a tutor who he thinks could help him out. Ellie is a nineteen-year-old genius. She has been in college for five years already and has two undergraduate degrees and is on her way to a masters. But, she has never really done normal before. Never time for relationships, her focus has always been on studying and trying to figure out how to tell her mother she doesn't want to be a doctor. When Ellie and Patrick first meet there is an unexpected connection between them but before they have a chance to explore it, circumstances separate them. But! A few days later it turns out that her student to tutor is Patrick. The chemistry between them is instant and intense. For Ellie she has never had a boyfriend or any form of a relationship, everything is no new. And for Patrick who is used to just hooking up isn't ready when he finds a real meaningful connection with someone. They understand one another in a way that is so different and rare and powerful. Their romance is a whirlwind with crazy highs and lows. Because how can either be comfortable planning a future with someone they are just getting to know? But how can they not when it feels different from anything they have had before? I loved their story. I couldn't put it down. Clearly, since I read it right after the previous book. There were so many twists and turns to their story. I loved both of their characters and how they were with one another. And how they faced the challenges of finding the one despite only knowing one another for a short time. Great story! Definitely another favorite of mine from this series so far! I can't wait to read more and I can't wait to find more books by this author! From a lot of details in this story, I ended up looking up her other works and saw that she crosses off characters with another hockey series that she wrote. So looks like I will have to get my hands on those! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

The fact they were so different but also so alike was gold! I wasn’t a fan of the way they met and their instant connection but I enjoyed how their relationship progressed. I absolutely loved how Patrick embraced the his feelings for Ellie and how they supported each other. Their chemistry was amazing and there were a lot of funny, sweet and steamy moments. This was a very emotional story. Patrick and Ellie went through a lot. Their relationships with their parents, their expectations and dreams, Ellie’s struggle with her PHD program choice, Patrick’s indecision about going pro or finishing his degree, the uncertainty of their professional futures, the fact they could be forced to go on separate ways after college, their deep feelings for each other and a very sad and dramatic event… my heart broke for them. Overall, Overtime was a beautiful, sweet, steamy, entertaining, emotional read with great characters and remarkable character growth. A great addition to the Moo U series.

    Krystal Amora Book Reviews

    I have almost nothing but pure giddy love for this story. The only reason it is almost is not even because of this story LOL but because I still don’t really like Patrick’s twin and I think I might have a mild case of trauma lingering … but everything about Ellie and Patrick made me all kinds of happy. Although I’m not so sure about an insta plot point when it comes to this age group, Kat made me less skeptic with her wizardry.

Without giving away the plot, I’m going to try and tell you a few of my favorite things about all this happiness! For one, Ellie was the best of the best! The choices Kat made for a chic of her age were wondrously wonderful!!! Honestly, I love Ellie and want to be her friend. Two, even tho this is really and insta attraction, there’s a friendship that is built with every page you read and it is just *happy sigh* Three, who doesn’t looooooooooove reading the guy who gets all the girls all the time get spanked in the heart by the chic most unlike any other chic he’s ever been with? Just me? LIES! Four, everything else LOL (I tell no lies) :) The book looses a half star (but clearly that’s just in my head because half stars aren’t a real thing) because no one thought it was a good idea to burn down all parental units involved. *shrug* what can I say? I’m not always the nice girl bwaahahahahaha *cackles* Now go do the thing. DO IT NOW! Purchase here: https://geni.us/AmazonOvertime Audiobook: https://geni.us/AudibleOvertime

Patrick's whole life has been hockey and he wants nothing more than to join the NHL but he is three classes away from getting his degree and to him that seems like a priority - but his dad doesn't keep quiet about how dumb staying in college is. Just like with Gametime, I wasn't expecting this book to be as deep and as emotional as it was for me. The journey that Patrick and Ellie went on broke me. I felt so much for them and my heart was so heavy for what they went through and endured. Their parents sucked hairy donkey . . . and deserved no forgiveness. As I said this was a bit more emotional than I suspected but I loved every second of it and truly respected how the author recognized Ellie's age and said maybe I am too young for all this. I already felt that she was so strong and mature for her age but for her to say that . . . my heart hurt for her but it resonated as such a truth - felt so real in that moment. I also adored Patrick's growth and development. I loved watching him grow and realize what he wanted/needed in his life and to rid the toxicity from his life. I think this is my first book by this author but it won't be my last.

    3.75 stars. This was a good book! Overtime is book five in the Moo U Hockey series and is Ellie and Patrick's book. We met Patrick in previous books in the series, especially in Gametime, which was his brother's book. Patrick is a senior and is a hockey star on his way to the NHL. He is looking to buckle down, stop partying as much and focus on his grades. Ellie is a 19 year old Masters degree student and a former child genius who is looking to stop focusing on her grades quite so much and have 3.75 stars. This was a good book!

Patrick is a senior and is a hockey star on his way to the NHL. He is looking to buckle down, stop partying as much and focus on his grades. Ellie is a 19 year old Masters degree student and a former child genius who is looking to stop focusing on her grades quite so much and have a little fun. Ellie and Patrick meet at a party and have instant chemistry, but are accidentally seperated. When Patrick needs a tutor for one of his classes, Ellie is recommended to him. When they meet again their attraction blooms and they both take a chance on romance together. I enjoyed Patrick so much better in this book than in book four, his twin brother's book, where he came off like a huge jerk. In this book he was practically a different person. He didn't come off like a huge manwhore and was so much sweeter and nicer. There was no OW drama, just a low angst, sweet read with no big betrayal. I really liked both Patrick and Ellie. They were great together. Ellie was a virgin and there were lots of sweet firsts. The characters were very mature for their ages. The book had a good story and good writing. Overall, this was just an easy, sweet, fun read. This is definitely my favorite that I have read in the series so far. Kit Mizera is a new-to-me author and I look forward to checking out her backlist. Overtime was a good read and I look forward to more from this series! *arc provided in exchange for an honest review*

A week later, Patrick and Ellie officially meet and she starts tutoring him. I liked Patrick and Ellie's connection, it was intense but they truly liked each other and understood one another. After the breakthrough between Patrick and Paxton in Gametime, I was glad to see the twins get along and them going in different directions with their lives. I liked Ellie, she was only 19 years old with 2 undergrad degrees and she was working on getting her PhD and worked as teacher. Ellie and Patrick were the total opposite of each other and yet their relationship worked. At the beginning of the book, Patrick was already tired of partying all the time and meeting Ellie changed his lifestyle. Patrick and Ellie were so comfortable with talking to one another about their hopes and dreams and what the future might hold. Ellie's mother was overbearing but she loved her daughter more than anything but Patrick's father was just an asshole and nothing could redeem him in my eyes. Ellie and Patrick did go through a rough patch but they realized how much they loved one another and needed each other and made things work. I loved the epilogue and especially the bonus that showed how much they've grown as a couple and as individuals.

Right from the start these two have incredible chemistry and we get to see two people falling in love for the first time in their lives in such a heartfelt way you can’t help but smile as you read their story. However, no romance is perfect and Patrick and Ellie are also both trying to figure out what they want for their futures. They are both at turning points in their lives and need to see if they both will take the same fork in the road or vere off in different directions. Throw in a little heartbreak and you have a story you do not want to miss! So much growth in these two characters in this book. Kat Mizera is one of the Reigning Writers of Hockey Romance and she does not disappoint in Overtime. Fans of her Sidewinders series will enjoy seeing some of their favorite players pop up! I hope we get to see these two mentioned in her future tales. Also, I highly recommend reading Gametime by Jami Davenport, another Moo U Read. This is Patrick's Twin Brother Paxton’s story by Jami Davenport, another Queen of Hockey Romance and another highly recommended read. I’m really loving these True North World books and can’t wait for more!

His life is changing and the future holds even more upheavals, his brother on a rival pro team, his degree in question, and his friends moved on. Until he sees Ellie at a party. (Fans of the True North series might remember Ellie from Heartland by Sarina Bowen). He doesn't know who she is, but he knows immediately she's someone special. Turns out they will end up spending time together when Pax asks Ellie to tutor Patrick. What follows is just a super sweet falling in love story. Patrick and Ellie find common ground in what they are going through, and they both fall quick and hard for each other in that forever-love sort of way. I love a well crafted story about a player finding his one-and-only, and this one is at the top of my list. Not only are Patrick and Ellie sweet together, Patrick's experience opens up a whole new world of pleasure for Ellie. He's so considerate of Ellie and it ends up getting him in trouble when they are both faced with some tough times. Overtime has a fabulous break-up\make-up ending that captures such a romantic feeling -- it's exactly why I read romance. I just loved it. I think I've re-read this ending quite a few times already! Kat Mizera is a first time author for me, and I'm sure I'll be looking for more from this author. I loved this college hockey romance. It had all the romantic feels and some truly great hockey moments. Definitely recommended for fans of romance and hockey!

    Overtime (Moo U #5) by Kat Mizera Oh my goodness. I was so apprehensive about this book. I realize all the books in the series are written by different authors but after reading Paxton’s story, I had very low expectations for Patrick. I didn’t really like Patrick and felt he had a long way to go before he’d become a character I’d feel invested in. Well the way Patrick was portrayed by Kat Mizera really redeemed him in my eyes.

Patrick is killing it on the ice but it’s coming at a cost. His grades are suffering and unless he gets those up, his coach has no hesitation in benching him for as long as it takes. Patrick’s twin organizes a tutor to help with school and the tutor comes in the form of Ellie. Patrick has been warned not to make his usual moves on Ellie as she’s not his usual sort of girl but if anyone is going to bring out the best of Patrick, it’s going to be her. I thought this book was great - possibly my favorite in the series thus far. I liked how the relationship between Ellie and Patrick developed throughout the book and I also liked the fact that they *didn’t* have their whole entire future mapped out at that age. They had a lot to work through both individually and as a couple. I would have liked a little more on the relationship between Patrick and Paxton but that’s because I’m greedy. A great book and addition to the Moo U series. *I voluntarily read an early copy of this book. **Reviewed by Melinda for Joandisalovebooks Blog.

There is nothing I enjoy more when hero and heroine meet for the first time and the red light glows from the goal. (Grins) Patrick and Ellie both have family issues from overbearing parents, to decisions toward their future what is never in question is the sparks between them. Are they both willing to give their future a shot? The supporting characters draw me in just as much as the main characters do. I enjoyed catching up with everyone and it was nice to be introduced to new characters as well. I enjoyed that even through in tough times they all had each other’s back. Overtime by Kay Mizera is a brilliant addition to the Moo U series and the True North World. Author Kay Mizera is a new author too me and I plan to check out her other works.

    I finished Paxton and Naomi's book and I had to jump straight into Patrick's. Because I seriously love watching a college sports hero who's incredibly promiscuous fall. And man did he fall hard. I really didn't know how this book was going to play out. Especially since at the end of the last book Patrick was sleeping with anything that was breathing. And there wasn't even a hint of a romantic relationship anywhere in his future.

Especially since at the end of the last book Patrick was sleeping with anything that was breathing. And there wasn't even a hint of a romantic relationship anywhere in his future. When Ellie was first mentioned I thought I knew how the story was going to play out and I was so glad to be proven wrong. The first meeting between Patrick and Ellie was great. And again, I thought I knew what was going to happen next and was wrong and I just got even more invested. I love that the things I automatically expect in a college romance were teased and not delivered. The sparks between these two were flying off the page and I loved that despite their differences they didn't go with the obvious relationship dramas. Everything that happened between them felt natural and realistic and I couldn't put it down. I was dying to see how they were going to merge their very different directions into a life together. This series is just awesome, and I love seeing the earlier couples together and seeing their relationships from outside perspectives. Along with seeing the secondary characters from different points of view. And I am thrilled I have the next two locked and loaded.

Patrick and Ellie are a great couple who love and support each other but struggle with decisions about their futures whether it is together or apart.

But what will happen when this couple realise they both have feelings for each other, what will happen when choices need to be made for their careers, will they survive or will they be torn apart.... I loved watching Ellie and Patrick’s friendship grow, it was fun watching Patrick come to terms with feelings he had never had before and it was heartwarming and entertaining to see the playboy brought to his knees by the adorable Ellie. I fell in love with Ellie as she opened up and explained why she was determined to find her own way in life and not live her parents dream. This is a love story about finding your soulmate, it’s about changing your ways for love and it’s about living your own life and fulfilling your own dreams. Kat Mizera did a wonderful job turning Patrick into a swoon worthy lover and Overtime is a great addition to the Moo U Series.

Ellie is a prodigy who excels in science, so her focus has always been on her studies. When she went to the tutoring session, she had no idea that her new student was the same man she had met at a party until their evening was cut short. Despite their differences there is no denying the chemistry or connection between them or how they become what the other has been missing in their lives. Once Patrick met Ellie he knew that she was the only woman he would need in his life while there is so much more to Ellie than the studious nerd she appears to be. They are both facing very difficult decisions when it comes to their futures as they try to balance their dreams with the dreams that other have for them and seeing the way they support each other only makes their relationship stronger.

    Moo U Hockey is a college hockey romance series in the World of True North, created by Sarina Bowen. Each novel can be read as a standalone, however the series will feature some of the same characters that you will come to know and love. If you loved reading this book, I would also recommend reading Sarina Bowen’s True North books and the other True North series (Vino & Veritas; Busy Bean Cafe; Speakeasy Taproom; and the rest of the Moo U books). In Overtime, we finally get Patrick’s story. Patri Moo U Hockey is a college hockey romance series in the World of True North, created by Sarina Bowen.

While he’s happy that his twin is happily coupled, he can’t help but feel a bit lost and envious. When his poor grades puts him in danger of playing hockey, he needs a tutor. Ellie is everything Patrick never knew he needed. Kat’s writing of these two lovebirds is fast and intense, making it obvious that these two are just meant to be. But meant to be isn’t perfect or without obstacles, so this story paints a memorable picture of this couple’s journey at the start of their relationship. I highly recommend Kat’s Moo U book, Overtime! Ellie and Patrick have an intriguing journey to happily ever after and it was a fun read. *I have received an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) from the author in exchange for an honest review.*

Only nineteen, she’s got two bachelor’s degrees and is in graduate school. She’s naive about many things and falls incredibly hard for Patrick. But it’s okay because Patrick has fallen just as hard which is a first for him. When their lives take an unexpected turn, they both find themselves introspective about their relationship and future while navigating meddlesome parents and make big life choices. Patrick is very different from his twin Paxton. As I read, I felt that the author epitomized Patrick’s personality perfectly and gave him a love so well-matched. Ellie was his perfect mate as they balanced each other out. Beautiful story! I received an advance copy of this book at my request and voluntarily left this review.

The way everything develops between Patrick and Ellie is sweet. Their meet cute is unique and definitely left me feeling a bond between the two. I appreciate the uniqueness of Ellie, with her being a genius. And of course her mother's behavior, although horrible, is understandable. I enjoy seeing a character like this, who's world is so pressured, come into their own. Their story is full of intense attraction, very little actual tutoring, and lots of hot sex. Their journey is full of ups and downs, some major life decisions, and I love it all. And the sex is definitely sizzling. Gametime is everything I enjoy about college romances. I love seeing people fall in love during this phase of their lives. I love the new freedom their independence brings and contemplation of future goals. This book grabbed my attention at the start and I couldn't put it down. I am absolutely obsessed with the Moo U world.

    *Thank you Heart Eyes Press for my advanced copy in exchange for an honest review* Upfront, I would like to mention there is a particular plotline that may be difficult for some readers, so if you'd like to know more please message me. I admit, I wasn't sure about Patrick heading into this one since I wasn't enamored with him after reading Gametime, but Kat Mizera sold me on him. I even added a couple of her other series to my list to pick up because I like the team Patrick was drafted by.

I admit, I wasn't sure about Patrick heading into this one since I wasn't enamored with him after reading Gametime, but Kat Mizera sold me on him. I even added a couple of her other series to my list to pick up because I like the team Patrick was drafted by. This one felt reminiscent of my first and favorite hockey romance The Deal by Elle Kennedy which also sold me. The hockey hunk needs a tutor and she's also got her own educational dreams staring her in the face. I loved their honesty with each other and their easy demeanor. Like so many romances, there was a classic miscommunication issue that was incredibly difficult to overcome and some extenuating circumstances. I admit I haven't read this storyline before and I would like to see more relationship elements like this talked about more openly. It's hard enough to navigate a relationship and different aspects of being an adult and there are so many things no one talks about. I blazed through this because I just loved them together.
