Book Review | Full Strength by Katie Kenyhercz


After a bum knee ended her soccer days, Alexandra—Allie—Kallen has dedicated her life to helping injured athletes cope and get back in the game. As the new team sports psychologist of the Las Vegas Sinners, she starts out with just one player, but he’s a handful. Goalies are stubborn, and she would know. She’s determined to figure him out and return him to the net good as new, especially after she sent her last patient back to the ice too soon. The problem is, she sees so much of herself in Shane, and their chemistry is off the charts. Falling for him isn’t in the plan. Is love worth losing her career?

Shane Reese’s entire identity has been wrapped up in being a goalie since he was five years old. When he gets a high ankle sprain right before playoffs, he doesn’t exactly take it well. After putting his fist through the physical therapy room wall and hitting a few joking teammates, he’s ordered to see the new shrink. All he has to do is convince her he’s seen the light, and he can get back to defending his team as soon as his ankle heals. The problem is, she sees through him like no one he’s ever met, and the more time he spends with her, the less hot he is to get back to the ice. Could something mean more than hockey?

I love the fact that this one is a part of a series, but can be read as a stand-alone. 

Her injury had stopped her from playing soccer. Since then, Alexandra Kallen had put all her passion into helping athletes cope with their injury and get back into the game. Being a sports psychologist in the team proved to be a bit of a challenged, especially when she was handed a stubborn player. But she was up for a challenge, and this time there was no room for mistake. She had done it once, and she wasn't going to do it again. But then, there's this chemistry that is brewing between them. Is he worth the risk of losing her career?

More than just the ankle injury, Shane Reese's has a lot more issues on his plate. It just put more gas on the flames. Playoffs is coming, and he wasn't yet allowed to get on the ice. After causing some havoc in physical therapy and some teammates, he was forced to see the new shrink. All he has to do was to convince her he was fine. Problem is, this woman sees right through him. The more he spends time with her, the dangerous it got for his heart.

I like the chemistry between two characters, and the individual issues Katie had given them. For Shane, it was his ankle injury, and the changes in his life, and for Kally, it was more of the acceptance of the team. Being a shrink is not an easy job, especially when a stigma is attached to every person who knocks in their doors. At first, they tried to fight it, ethics and all - but with chemistry of this magnitude, a whole rink of ice would sizzle. They were meant for each other! I'm glad they have worked it out with each other's help.

I had so much fun reading. This is my first Katie Kenyhercz book, and this wouldn't be my last.
