Pilots Hockey #1
Sophia Henry
Releasing Sept 1st, 2015

She closed her heart long ago. He just wants to open her mind. For fans of Toni Aleo and Sawyer Bennett, the debut of Sophia Henry’s red-hot Detroit Pilots series introduces a hockey team full of complicated men who fight for love.

Auden Berezin is used to losing people: her father, her mother, her first love. Now, just when she believes those childhood wounds are finally healing, she loses something else: the soccer scholarship that was her ticket to college. Scrambling to earn tuition money, she’s relieved to find a gig translating for a Russian minor-league hockey player—until she realizes that he’s the same dangerously sexy jerk who propositioned her at the bar the night before.

Equal parts muscle and scar tissue, Aleksandr Varenkov knows about trauma. Maybe that’s what draws him to Auden. He also lost his family too young, and he channeled the pain into his passions: first hockey, then vodka and women. But all that seems to just melt away the instant he kisses Auden and feels a jolt of desire as sudden and surprising as a hard check on the ice.

After everything she’s been through, Auden can’t bring herself to trust any man, let alone a hot-headed puck jockey with a bad reputation. Aleksandr just hopes she’ll give him a chance—long enough to prove he’s finally met the one who makes him want to change.

4 star review
I was given this book through NetGalley for a honest review
Delayed Penalty is a debut novel from Sophia Henry and is the first book in the Pilots Hockey Series.
I love sports romance stories especially ones that have hot ice hockey players.....
Aleksandr is a Russian playing in the minor US Ice Hockey League who is living in the fast lane but with that comes problems like dealing with the media.
Auden is on her holidays from college and her Russian grandfather hires her as a translator and tutor for Aleksandr. She is only meant to help him not fall in love with him.......
Aleksandr finds himself falling for Auden but can they both get over the constant reminder of losing people and dreams .......
Auden has lost her father, her mother and now her soccer scholarship.
Aleksandr lost both his parents a couple of years ago.
Can  these two get past believing nothing is forever. Just when you think they do it all changes.
Auden and Aleksandr have chemistry, they have rapport and even their arguments are funny at times.
Sophia Henry has done a great job with this book and you really get a insight into why Aleksandr and Auden believe love is not for them, It also has some great secondary characters that I hope we get to read about in future books. 
Well Done Sophia

Sophia Henry, a proud Detroit native, fell in love with reading, writing, and hockey all before she became a teenager. She did not, however, fall in love with snow. So after graduating with an English degree from Central Michigan University, she moved to North Carolina, where she spends her time writing books featuring hockey-playing heroes, chasing her two high-energy sons, watching her beloved Detroit Red Wings, and rocking out at concerts with her husband.
