Virgin Territory by Lia Riley

Practice Makes Perfect

Patrick “Patch” Donnelly has what it takes to be the best goalie in the NHL…if only he could learn to control his temper. When Coach orders him to get his head in the game with private yoga classes, Patch isn’t having it. There’s no way this tough Boston guy would be caught dead downward dog-ing his way to inner peace. But if he refuses, he risks his starting position and the dream he sacrificed everything for, including joining the priesthood.

Yoga instructor Margot Kowalski is over men. After yet another toxic relationship, she’s eager to forget love and focus on growing her business. Doing the Hellions head coach a favor by helping out a troubled player can't hurt, and it might give her career a high-profile boost. But free-spirited Margot is soon charming the pants off Patch. Literally. Her sassy combination of sweet and sexy proves irresistible to the goalie. Before Patch can give into temptation though, he’ll have to confess his biggest secret:

He’s a virgin.

But Patch is hiding more than sexual inexperience, and his dark past soon threatens to destroy his shot at true love.

Review: 4/5

Patch is one heck of a goalie in the NHL with a not-so-nice temper. Being served early in the series doesn’t help as well. Now Coach gives him an ultimatum to go into a Yoga Class and get his head in the game or risking his spot to be the starting goalie. After every sacrifices that he have done to be where he is, he was willing to do anything, including yoga.

He’s an interesting character, not just because the status of his sex life, but including the fact that he almost joined priesthood. It’s such a rare read for a man not to “make use” of his looks, generous muscles and power to magnet willing women (yes, judgmental girl here). He was an amazing man, a bit of alpha with a shy streak - such a refreshing kind of character to read.

Margot, on the other hand, is a magnet of toxic relationship and not-so-nice men. But now, all she wanted to do was to open her new business. It would help saying yes to private lessons with a troubled hockey player. Only that, Margot wasn’t prepared for Patch. He was something else, and a big surprise for her. 

It was fast, sweet with a whole lot of bumps. I was glad on how they work on both of their individual issues and issues as a couple before they finally get into that “relationship state.”

Lia Riley gives her readers a sizzling read filled with unexpected things and complex characters you’d fall in love with.
