This book was cute, hockey-y, collegey and a bit emotional. I loved reading it. It was a bit too much back and forth and a good therapist wouldn't have hurt. But still. It was okay. And I loved that we got a nice epilogue for a change. ☺ Can't wait to get more Vermont soon! HALFTIME was a cute and sparky second-chance college hockey romance!

I liked this second chance at love story, even if I was skeptic the hero could redeem himself after cheating on his girlfriend but in the end I was glad I have given him a chance. Faith and Seb share this deep connection that allows them to understand each other really well, they go way back, they feel at ease talking about their families’ problems, that’s why I can’t believe it took so long to find out what doesn’t work in their relationship. At times the lack of communication between them is unnerving but I forget they are still so young. I was invested in their journey since the shocking beginning, I hoped they could overcome their issues and find some happiness together. I liked to see them growing up as a couple and as individual because only knowing ourself better we can build up a stable and healthy relationship. Halftime was a good story and a quick read I recommend it. Copy kindly provided by the Publisher/Author.

These two were so freaking adorable and I loved that both of them were hockey players. I don't know what it is, but there is just something I love about to incredible athletes who fall in love. The author did a phenomenal job showcasing both the male and female MOO U hockey teams equally throughout the storyline so that we had the chance to experience both characters in their element. This second chance romance is full of angsty moments about learning to trust and working through unresolved issues that led to the initial end to their relationship. Seb Hunter destroyed his long distance relationship his freshman year with a drunken late night call that led to the biggest misunderstanding and ultimately the end to his relationship. A year later, he has finally moved on and is in a new relationship, but when his ex shows up on campus as a goalie on the girl's MOO U hockey team, he is soon back to wishing things had turned out differently. When his romantic feelings for Faith resurface, he knows he needs to convince her what she thinks happened, never actually happened. Faith Devereaux had her heart shattered a year ago when her boyfriend calls her in a drunken state, making little to no sense as a misunderstanding leads to the end of their relationship and a broken heart. Even though her ex attends MOO U, she chooses to accept a spot on the girl's hockey team. When they run into each other, sparks begin to fly again and those feelings start to come back. Faith needs to learn to trust Seb again if they are ever going to get their happily ever after. This story was a great addition to the MOO U series and I once again get to add another new-to-me author to my list. It's amazing how many author's I have discovered through this world and I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in the series.

This second chance new adult romance can be read as a standalone. Faith has always dreamed of going pro in hockey and maybe even one day playing on the same ice as the men. Now that she’s at Moo U, she can see all of her dreams coming true. Well, all of her dreams aside from he who shall not be named. The very man who shattered her heart with one phone call, the man who also happens to be going to the same college and playing on the men’s hockey team. It shouldn’t be that hard to avoid Sebastian… right?! He knew who she was by first glance, as his friends fawned over her goalie skills, Seb was trying not to pass the hell out. The woman who owned his heart was at HIS college, playing for the women’s hockey team is the very same woman who broke his heart when she ghosted him. So many wrongs need to be righted, but will Faith give him the time of day to finally explain himself… only time will tell. My Thoughts: One thing I love about the Moo U series is it’s ability to introduce new authors to readers. Kim Findlay is one of my newest new-to-me authors. After reading Halftime, I have to admit, there were some moments I loved and some moments that had me scratching my head and wondering why the hell that happened. Believe me when I say, I wanted to love this one so damn much, but I needed more chemistry. I went into Halftime with high hopes. I loved the premise of a woman hockey player wanting to be the best and the only way to gain that title was to prove to everyone around her that she could block any shot, even shots made by the Moo U men’s hockey team. I loved seeing Faith grow to be comfortable in her own skin, and I loved the slight vulnerability she showed throughout this novel…. What I didn’t like was the relationship between Faith and Sebastian…. I was rooting for these two at the start, but somewhere towards the middle of their story, I had an irrational thought, that thought being these two were better off as friends. My theory goes as follows, In order to have a successful relationship there is one key factor that needs to be initiated from the start. Trust. You have to trust the one you're with before you can start to love them. Love without trust is lust. That’s what I felt from Faith and Seb’s relationship. I felt more of a best friend’s with slight benefits coming from them than I did a happily ever after relationship. What this whole review and the novel itself comes down to is reader preference. I love good banter and the angst that comes along with an on and off relationship, but for me to really enjoy those angsty moments, they usually come towards the seventy percent mark, I have to feel an intense connection towards the couple. I need to feel that these two are in it for the long haul before the rug is ripped out from under my feet. Sadly, I didn’t feel that overwhelmingly intense chemistry I needed to feel. Overall, I liked Faith and her goals, I liked her vulnerability. I didn’t like her insecurities and the fact that she didn’t wait for a simple conversation with Seb before jumping straight to the ‘he’s a cheater mentality’. What saved this from being a two star rating was Seb’s moment of clarity. The moment he realized he wouldn’t always have the proof to show Faith he wasn’t cheating. I may have gotten a little teary eyed during this moment. The man stood up for himself and his character, that deserves kudos and a standing ovation. After this moment, I saw him in a different light. I was able to feel a connection with his character. If you’re a fan of second chance romances with a hockey twist, try this one out. Even if it was just a like for me, it may be a love for you. It had definite potential but missed the love mark for me. ________________ Find me here: The Staircase Reader Instagram Facebook Twitterv

    I feel like I've mentioned this in previous hockey romance reviews but it is freaking hilarious to me that I have become to entangled in these books and I know NOTHING about hockey. Seriously. Like the fact that Faith also played hockey in this one made it 10x better to me for whatever reason and again, it's not because I am a rea life hockey fan lolol. Really though, this book, along with Sarina Bowen's, Bombshells has me so excited for future books featuring players from the women's league. I I feel like I've mentioned this in previous hockey romance reviews but it is freaking hilarious to me that I have become to entangled in these books and I know NOTHING about hockey. Seriously. Like the fact that Faith also played hockey in this one made it 10x better to me for whatever reason and again, it's not because I am a rea life hockey fan lolol. Really though, this book, along with Sarina Bowen's, Bombshells has me so excited for future books featuring players from the women's league. I really love that dynamic and learning more about how much of an unfair advantage those ladies are at compared to their male counterparts. To get more into this story though, we start out the book about a year before the main events actually happen. Faith (who has grown up with seeing her dad cheat on her mom for YEARS) gets a drunken call from her boyfriend, Seb. He's so drunk and distraught that he's not making any kind of sense but from what she can decipher, he's cheated on her. Not wanting to deal with that shit in her own relationship and life, she completely cuts ties and blocks him on every platform imaginable. Fast-forward to a year later and the beginning of the semester at Moo U. Seb is at the rink with a few of his teammates when he catches sight of a goalie. A female goalie. One whose very movements on the ice were as familiar to him as his own. He did NOT know she'd be attending and high tails it out of there. The two ~of course~ end up bumping into each other and eventually wind up back in each other's lives. Let me first start out by saying, THANK YOU Cooper. He's Seb's best friend, teammate, and roommate and helps play matchmaker throughout the entire damn book LOLLL. At one point he says, "The two of you are worse than Romeo and Juliet. If there was any poison around here, you'd both be dead." Wiser words were never spoken. Even though these two have always had explosive chemistry, obviously the cheating thing is problematic. Just as I had expected/hoped. Seb didn't cheat on Faith. He was drunk and missing her, a girl crawled into his bed, and when he realized it wasn't her, he FLIPPED out. Of course, the fact that Faith THOUGHT he had for an entire freaking year isn't just going to go away. I am glad that they did talk about that and that she came to terms with how that could affect their relationship down the road. Seb really was an all around great guy, possibly even one of my top favorites of this series so far. He was kind, loving, honest, and I just wanted to wrap him up in a tight squeeze considering how he felt forgotten within his own family. I really thought these two were great together and the quote that I added below that is from the epilogue 10000% solidified how much I loved this book. It seriously gives me goosebumps every time I read it. The puck dropped. My wife deflected the first shot on goal. My daughter and I cheered. It was perfect.

I received a free copy through Heart Eyes Press in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion. 4.5 stars — This one surprised me! While I could tell from the blurb that there wasn’t any cheating, I still wasn’t sure exactly what that meant and how it would reflect on our characters. It was definitely complicated, but I was okay with it, so phew! I seriously fell in love with Sebastien. I mean, he was complicated for sure, but he was sweet and endearing. I truly felt for how much his childhood of neglect had affected him, and how he strove to fit wherever he was — to not make waves. And it truly explained how desperate he was to explain things to Faith, and thus why he made the boneheaded mistake of calling while drunk. I think the thing is that I really appreciate heroes who are outside the norms. I kind of loved that he wasn’t interested in playing the field, that he was pretty down to earth about his hockey playing and future (though there was a lot more to that as well). I just…I don’t know, I loved him. He is 100% the extra half star bump all on his own. Faith, on the other hand, was hella complicated! But what’s weird is that I liked her despite all the things I *didn’t* have in common with her. I think part of that is that I 100% connected with her about how she saw herself in comparison to other girls b/c she was taller and bigger — I think it’s not something that everyone can understand…it’s sort of in the background but always there. And then for all the things that I don’t have in common, Ms. Findlay did a hell of a job of helping me to see who Faith was, and how she came to be that way, and why she held those beliefs. She was fiercely competitive and hardworking and ambitious (none of those qualities describe me). But it made sense for Faith. And then there were the effects of her own fucked up childhood and how it coloured her views on relationships. I expected to get a lot more frustrated with her than I actually did. Which is not to say I didn’t get frustrated with her, more just that I could see what was going on, even if I wanted her to wake up. I loved them together, even as I ached watching them go through all the ups and downs. You could tell how close they were, how strong their bond was. I loved seeing them get their friendship back and seeing them supporting one another. And their steamy chemistry was pretty fantastic — it had both comfort and excitement. And the conflict was okay for me…in fact it was necessary. I was so proud of Sebastien for his realization, and I appreciated that it took Faith a while to figure things out. I think it wouldn’t have been believable if she’d figured it out right away. I will admit that I agree with a fellow blogger that I wish they’d mentioned counselling — because it’s unrealistic for Faith to make those changes on her own, it’s just too huge. I was surprised at the conflict that Faith ended up having with her coach. While I could understand it to a degree, I was infinitely upset on behalf of Faith that her coach was so unprofessional and dickish. I get that it sort of resolved, and I get the underlying reasons, but it never should have dragged on that long, and her coach should have apologized. On the good surprise front was Cooper! He was like a little fairy godfather in the background. I kind of loved what he brought to both Seb and Faith in their growth. He was very astute, and it made me wonder what was in his past to explain him. I kind of want his book, and I’m not sure I’m going to get it. I also really appreciated the friendship that Faith developed with Penny. It was different, but she needed that. So yeah. I enjoyed this way more than I was expecting. Gotta love it when that happens, you know?

      Faith and Seb's story was cute, but so, so, sooo incredibly frustrating. Firstly, I liked that we had both male and female hockey players in this one - yay for the women finally getting a look in. I could understand Faith blocking Seb out of her life for the most part, but sheesh, she was so harsh. And not letting him tell her what really happened. And then finding out what really happened and then treating him like she does - yeah, she got herself on my sh*t list for that.

I love a good second chance story, but to me, Seb was way to good for her for the most part, and she didn't deserve her 3rd chances. This pair needs to talk it out I tell ya! Also, what is with with crappy parents in every. single. book. Especially the past few in this series. It is like they all got together and pulled every a-hole parent story they could get -but this is probably just my issues, so ignore it! I did like where the epilogue showed us in this one though.

I know some readers love it as a mechanism in their romance to build steamy heat between a couple, but it often fills me with a little bit of dread. Enter the prologue to Kim Findlay’s Halftime. Talk about a hook. After reading it along with the first chapter, you can’t help but feel your heart pounding. Halftime exists in the Moo U series published through Sarina Bowen’s Heart Eyes Press, and it follows Seb, a hockey player on the Burlington U men’s hockey team, and Hailey, an incoming freshman goalie for the women’s hockey team. Seb and Hailey dated in high school, as they circled each other through hockey. Seb, a year older than Hailey, is off at college, and it seems as though he accidentally cheated on Hailey. As the story progresses, we find out there is more to the story. Even more, Seb and Hailey must work through seeing each other on campus and the reappearance of old feelings. There is much to love about Halftime. For one, Findlay takes the space of her story to illustrate the disparity between women’s and men’s hockey, something that Sarina Bowen herself has focused on in her recent story, Bombshells. Taking the space of the story and actually focusing a portion of Hailey’s characterization on this topic adds gravity to this book which feels necessary. Hailey’s dream is to play on a professional men’s hockey team; her father has raised her with that mission in mind. However, that dream becomes complicated in the realm of women’s hockey. This particular focus shows the complexity of Hailey’s journey. Additionally, this is a story of second chances, and Seb, while seemingly the “bad guy” at the beginning of the book, is actually a stalwart hero. He’s not a typical hockey “player” as we read Connor, one of his teammates, working hard to corrupt him. He’s a monogamist, and he is also deeply in love with Hailey even though their story is complicated. A hero drawn like Seb makes reading an emotional story easier because he instills trust in the reader. Even more, Hailey’s story, besides focusing on the disparities of gender, takes a particular turn towards the psychology of families. We also find this in Seb’s story as well. Both Hailey and Seb are products of their upbringings, and this causes issues for their future. Kim Findlay is careful to illustrate the work that must be done to make better choices than one’s parents. For me, however, Halftime wasn’t perfect. There were times when Seb and Hailey’s choices seemed inconsistent with the progression of their journeys. Seb’s choice to walk away from Hailey felt contrived to bring tension to their story. I think there might have been better ways to work through their troubles. Overall, though, I thought Seb and Hailey as a couple is a perfect addition to the Moo U universe. There is a sensitivity and compassion to their characterizations that connects you to them emotionally. I am excited to see if we will get Connor’s story as he was one of the most compelling characters of this book. If you’ve loved Sarina Bowen’s World of True North, Halftime is a must-read.

    Books, Coffee & Passion I was so hyped for this book because it was an all hockey romance! Faith, just as Seb, was a hockey player and I really wanted to read about her perspective, her struggles and experiences in hockey and of course their romance. Their story had a tricky premise and I was a little worried about that. Seb was a great guy. Sweet, caring and still hung up on his ex: Faith.

Their story had a tricky premise and I was a little worried about that. Seb was a great guy. Sweet, caring and still hung up on his ex: Faith. They had a major blow up soon after Seb started college but, even though Seb thought he had moved on, it was pretty clear that he still had feelings for her. I went into this thinking I would struggle with Seb, but the author did an amazing job with the circumstances surrounding their break up and with his character.  I loved him so much! I need to stop loving characters this much from the beginning, because that usually means it's harder to meet my high expectations regarding their love interest. Spoiler alert: It happened with this book. Cooper, Seb's hockey teammate and friend, was a great character too. I'm very curious about him, I want to understand why he was so invested in Seb and Faith's relationship. I hope we get his story!  Faith was a complex character. I loved Faith, the goalie - hockey player aspects, in the story. I loved the way the author showed the double standards for male and female athletes, this is such an important topic and I enjoyed it being exposed. I adored Faith's passion for hockey and how hard she fought for her dream. She was also a great team player and her story was very empowering. Unfortunately, she did annoy me, at times, mostly because of the way she handled Seb. I understood that she had major trust issues and she had her reasons for it. Her parents relationship was very dysfunctional, her mom and her dad were awful together, and Seb drunk dialing her, leading to their breakup (before the book started), didn't really help her with trusting. Honestly, I wasn't convinced Faith would trust Seb completely, no matter what he did. And I hated that for him. In spite of that, I really wanted them to be together and I rooted for them. I just doubted that Faith was ready to completely trust him (or any other love interest) at this point. Then... the epilogue... I LOVED it. I cried when I read it. I can't put into words how much I truly loved it. It was PERFECT! Frankly, I was thinking about rating it 3 or 3.5 stars until the epilogue, but I ended up boosting it up to 4 stars. That epilogue... 😍😍😍 Overall, Halftime was a sweet, entertaining, empowering, interesting, well written story. I hope we get more books featuring Faith's teammates! I would love that!

Now these two have to see a lot more of each other after a mistake that lead Faith to think Seb had cheated on her while they tried long distance the year before. I love anything that has included a women’s team so I was super excited to see that Faith also played hockey. I love a second chance romance story so I was excited to read this. Faith and Seb share a deep connection that has allowed them to always understand each other really well and their history together really helps that. They can talk to each other in a way they can’t talk to anyone else and are so at ease with talking about their family problems. One thing that frustrated me was how Seb and Faith took so long to figure out what wasn’t working in their relationship, their communication game needed upping! But I appreciate that they’re still young and working on their communication. I was really interested in their story and was super curious about how Seb could redeem himself after Faith believed he had cheated on her but as I read the book I found myself really wanting them to find happiness together. I loved watching them grow as a couple and work out their differences. This is a good and quick read and you get double the hockey so who can complain! *ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review, all opinions are my own*

I liked many things about this book especially that both leads are hockey players. The premise of Halftime was a little daunting at first. Any time a book starts with a dramatic, painful scene like that, I feel like the author can get stuck rebuilding my trust in the character. While there was a little of that in Halftime, I didn’t feel like I was set against either character from the start either, and I was happy to see them work through their issues together and on their own. On top of the classic miscommunication conflict right out of the gates, New Adult/ Young Adult romances can be tricky for me. Although I enjoy them, sometimes the immaturity that makes the characters realistic frustrates me, especially when it feels overly dramatized. Overall, I thought the characters and storyline were done well and fit with the collegiate demographic. The conflicts based on the lack of communication or misunderstandings and assumptions did cause a little of my interest to wane at a few points, but it was also completely believable given the circumstances for both characters and I was able to get back on track after the scene or two. Overall, while Halftime had a few of my personal traps for new adult romances, for the most part, the author smoothly navigated them and kept me invested in Faith and Seb. I think fans of collegiate or young adult romances will enjoy this book. *eARC received via Heart Eyes Press. The author, PA, and publisher had no influence over this review*

A year later, Seb faces Faith when she enrolls in Moo U. Faith knows her ex goes to Moo U and plays hockey but that isn't going to stop her from doing the same. Faith has grown up in a house where her dad constantly cheats on her mother yet her mother never leaves. Faith's one rule is never be with a cheater and she spends the last year reminding herself of that as she gets over Seb. But there is something she doesn't know. Seb actually never cheated. A drunken night, a huge misunderstanding, and a drunk phone call leads Faith to block Seb before he can sober up enough and explain what happened. Lucky for Seb, he has a great friend on the hockey team who doesn't want to see two people stay apart because of a miscommunication. The air gets cleared and Seb and Faith reestablish a friendship between one another. And eventually something more. Their chemistry has always been there and their connection deep, but it doesn't mean their insecurities are gone. Faith especially has to learn to trust. Can she find her trust in Seb to keep the best relationship she has ever had? Or will her fears drive him away? Their story was so good and another great one to this series. You want to cheer for them both, especially knowing that their history is complicated and their fears are deep. You want to root for them to work past it all because they are great together. Great story! Can't wait for the next one! I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    I was excited for this book because it has a women’s hockey team in it along with the guys. Faith is a freshman at Moo U and is one of the goalies on the women’s hockey team. Although she is very good she still has to prove herself to her teammates and her coach. One thing that irks me about Faith is she says she is the best goalie on the team and fees that she should suit up for every game and at least be a starter. Sebastian is on the men’s hockey team at Moo U and is Faith’s ex boyfriend. He I was excited for this book because it has a women’s hockey team in it along with the guys.

Sebastian is on the men’s hockey team at Moo U and is Faith’s ex boyfriend. He and Faith try to avoid each other until they can’t. Before you know it they are hashing out the past and hooking up. They start dating again until Faith thinks he is cheating. Sebastian does not want to always pay for her dads indiscretions so he decides it’s best to break up. You learn about how Sebastian and Faith grew up. You lean why Faith is how she is about cheating and why Sebastian is the way he is about having a “family” that cares and having his own space. With his family he felt like a burden and un wanted. I was really hoping we would get to see him hash is feelings out with his parents but we never get to see that. Faith talks to her mom about being unhappy in her marriage but all we get is her mom saying you don’t know what your talking about. There is no further explanation which would have been good to hear. All in all it was a good book. I would recommend the series.

That’s all I’m going to say on any and all actions and reactions happening in this book. Now, what I really liked. I enjoyed the heck out of the growth in this story. I enjoyed the writing of said growth. I enjoyed the camaraderie amongst the secondary characters and their added layer to the story. And even tho me and Faith will probably never be *friends* (lol) I like where her life is going with Seb and wish her well ;) The puck dropped. My wife deflected the first shot on goal. My daughter and I cheered.

Communication is key, Right ? I enjoyed these two, but I could tell through their inexperience with relationship, how young they were and how far they had to grow on their own and together. I just enjoy seeing how supportive the other characters are in this series, sure there are fun moments. I swear Coop needs to get put up to the wall by a woman.*grins*. Sab and Faith could use all the help they can get, but in the long run will it help? Halftime by Kim Findlay is a story about knowing your truths, growing up and self growth. I would love to read how both of these characters do in a few years. I can see Faith playing in Sarina Bowen’s Women’s hockey series. *LOL* There was a shock in the plot that i did not expect, but I will leave you guessing on that one. Rated 5 Stilettos by Deb!

    When Sebastien Hunter left his girlfriend behind to attend Moo U, he knew there was one thing his girlfriend Faith Deveraux would not tolerate and that was cheating. There's a brutal breakup and Seb is forced to move on, even though there's unfinished business between him and Faith. Imagine his surprise to find her practicing with the Moo U womens hockey team.

With the help of his friend Cooper, Seb and Faith find their way to a second chance amid dealing with issues related to trust and cheating and past history. I did like that part of what they were going through very much in this second chance romance. I did feel that Seb and Faith were often times poor communicators with each other and while I liked them, I also thought they often acted impulsively to their own relationship detriment. But most of all, I thought Cooper was borderline creepy with his insistence on butting into their relationship. I was waiting for him to make a play for Faith, tbh. Something just didn't ring true to me with Cooper's heavy involvement in being the go-between. So this was just okay for me. I liked the examination of trust in a second-chance relationship, and the disparity between support for women's sports versus men's sports, but there were some other elements of the story that weren't for me.

    This was a good book. But not great.  I loved seeing that the athlete in this sports romance was not just the male character but also the female character.  Their chemistry was undeniable. And I really liked that they tried establishing a friendship first as they mended their past relationship. However I didn't like that the main character, Faith, was so hung up on trying to be girly. Or how she changed the way she dressed to fit in. I would have preferred for her to take pride in her body.  Jus This was a good book.

Also I didn't like that the friend Cooper was the only reason they ended up giving each other another chance. It felt a little like high school with them talking thru their friends instead of talking to each other. The lack of support from both sets of parents and the coach was incredibly frustrating. They should have been guiding their kids/players. Instead it felt like they were holding them back. The book has some sweet moments that I loved. Specifically the storyline with the grandmother. And Penny was a fun side character. But I just felt that the lack of maturity with most of the characters took away from the overall narrative.

    This second chance romance gave us both a male and a female hockey player which I really appreciated. And I also liked that we got to see some of the challenges faced by the women's team in this story as well.

When they meet up again, the chemistry is still there and it's obvious that neither is over the other. I enjoyed seeing them try to navigate a friendship but, of course, both wanted more. And so began the back and forth as they tried to come to terms with their second chance. My issue with the romance here is that I feel Faith, even at the very end, was not completely ready to trust Seb and, even though the epilgue showed me I may be wrong, I am still skeptical. I would be remiss if I didn't mention Cooper here. He was a great secondary character who played a pretty big role in this story. I enjoyed both the fun-loving Cooper and the serious guy who supported a friend to better understand what he wanted and helped him get it. I'm not sure where Faith and Seb would be without Coop. Overall, this was a quick read and an enjoyable story.

She definitely grew on me and I was cheering for her happy ending. I believed in these two. I just wish they had talked a smidgen sooner-BUT this portrayal?? Absolutely how a college relationship would look, in my opinion. So I could believe in them and cheer for them. I love how they resolved things and moved forward. This story took me places I wasn't expecting to go. But I appreciated the journey and once I understood Faith a bit more, I got it. It worked very well. I would recommend this book. **This and other reviews featured on our blog, Booked All Night, http://www.BookedAllNightblog.com**

    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.

Once upon a time, he messed up and a great girl named Faith walked out of his life, but now she’s back and she’s playing college hockey on the women’s Moo U team. Will it be just halftime for them or is it game over? Kim’s story was a great look into college hockey: women’s versus men’s teams. Kim’s hero and heroine were both great hockey players and you’ll have to read to find out if love can overcome the obstacles. I highly recommend Kim’s Moo U book, Halftime!

I definitely enjoy that not everything is as it appears. I was hesitant to forgive Seb, but the author does a great job helping me to love him. Switching things up a little, both Seb and Faith play hockey. This makes for a fun element. Written in alternating first person pov, I love the way both characters fully come to life. The writing is smooth and easy to read. It kept me intrigued throughout. Halftime is everything I love about sports romances. Kim Findlay left me happy with this adorable story and I am thrilled to get a chance to read it.

I was a little nervous at the start of the book because I wasn't quite sure about the premise of the story and about Seb, but I was pleasantly surprised as the book went on. If anything, I struggled a bit more with Faith's character as the book went on with how she was with Seb, though it was clear why she was the way she was, it was still frustrating at times and I felt for Seb. This was my first book by the author and overall I enjoyed the story line and felt like it was well written. I would definitely be interested in reading more of her work and I absolutely cannot wait for more of the Moo U series!!!

Seb and Faith have a history, they were together for 2 years until a drunken phone call led to a massive misunderstanding which then led to the biggest mistake of his life. Seb can’t believe a year later he has come face to face with Faith when she enrols in Moo U. Faith knows she is likely to bump into her ex but she won’t let that stop her moving forward with her hockey career but how will she really feel when she faces the man she believes cheated on her, the man who haunts her dreams... This is a great addition to the Moo U Series, it has a interesting and captivating story, it has characters you will fall in love with and it’s entertaining, witty and throughly enjoyable.

Avoiding the relationship, I did find the story interesting. I loved getting the insight into women’s sports and how it compares to men’s. How they share the arena but the women’s team doesn’t even get their own locker room. It made me think more of what sports I choose to watch and support and what that says about me. Side note: are every hockey parents this unsupportive? This feels like a theme to this series. Halftime was good but not great but I still enjoyed continuing the series.

Because both Faith and Sebastien were completely awesome, and I enjoyed their story. Yes, they made stupid mistakes, but I got where they were coming from. And neither of them acted like idiots or aceholes. They just dealt and learnt and matured and that is what I want from my NA characters. And omg I have to mention that I loved that epilogue, it was the perfect cherry on top. So I've added a new author to the stalk list and I can't wait to have the time to read her backlist. But for now I'm jumping straight into Darkroom. Kisses.

Both Seb and Faith come from dysfunctional families so their wariness and mistrust of each other is unavoidable. They both need to come to terms with their pasts and how it affects their present so that they can begin to heal and move forward. I think it was important to both of them to stress their friendship as part of their boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. They both needed to learn to trust in themselves and each other because they were the only ones who would put each other first. Wow!

    This was more of a 3.5, but I usually round-up with half stars. It fits well in the rest of the series, but we’re in a new hockey season now. I do like having the romance follow two hockey players. I really liked Seb. He was easy to connect with and seems like a really nice guy. I always like reading about romance heroes who aren’t pathologically allergic to relationships. FAith is a little more of a prickly person. She has a lot of hang-ups around cheating because of her parents’ relationship. This was more of a 3.5, but I usually round-up with half stars.

I thought she was kind of unfair to seb. The romance was good. It’s a second-chance romance which is one of my favorite tropes. I was afraid the reunion would be unnecessarily drawn out and dramatic. Thankfully, it wasn’t. Their romantic conflicts were pretty predictable, too. That seems standard for the Moo U books. I did really like that Ms. Findlay acknowledged the difficulties of two athletes being in a relationship. The epilogue was perfect. I’m a sucker for an epilogue-especially if it’s set more than a few months in the future. Oh, and Cooper. I’m really hoping he gets his own books someday. He’s such a good friend and I’m very interested in his story.

If there were any poison around here, you’d both be dead.” This book really has all the angst, anger, sadness and happiness that I want from a College Romance! I really enjoyed reading Faith and Seb’s story. The twist on what happened and how her past plays into her perception is so well written. Especially how the thought of him cheating changed how she felt about herself and how she struggles to change her mindset. I really appreciated the fact of how even when he had the option to change- he still stayed true to himself and who he was, not giving in to the peer pressure from the team. Their happily ever after was so well deserved! I absolutely adore Coop too and can’t wait to read his story! He was such a great friend to both of them. And that epilogue..... 😍 This book is another great addition to the Moo U series! I highly recommend it!
