Today we are thrilled to be sharing KFF’s review of CHECKED, the first sports romance stand-alone in the Boston Terrier Hockey Series
by Jacob Chance
They call him ‘Wilde Man’. Rumor has it he’s an animal on the ice and between the sheets.
Like the rest of the female population, I’ve been crushing on Clancy Wilde, the captain of Boston University’s hockey team, since the first time I saw him. Big, blond, and charming, he ticks all the boxes.
When we find ourselves at a wedding, drunk and flirting, I know I can finally check this tattooed, bad boy, hockey player off my wish list.
One night is all it was meant to be, until I see two pink lines on the pregnancy test.
How did the notch on my belt turn into a ball and chain?

Clancy Wilde is the captain of Boston University’s hockey team and there’s a rumour he’s known as “Wilde Man” as he’s an animal on the ice and between the sheets! Tenley Davenport has had a huge crush on him from the moment she saw him. They both attend a wedding where the alcohol flows and flirting takes place. She finally gets her wish; however, it has its repercussions.
It makes for interesting reading when their future life plans are thrown off course. Both live in completely different states and somehow have to deal with the unplanned surprise. Clancy is an up and coming hockey player and he loves his sport so much. Tenley is studying education so she can become a teacher. The two college students thought they were having one night of passion, not a lifetime commitment.
This is a well-written story about a swoon-worthy hero and a gutsy well-put-together heroine. I found them both intriguing and somewhat perplexing as I wanted to know how they were going to work out the set of circumstances they found themselves in. They’re crossover characters from previous workings of the author and I was excited to learn more about them. Clancy has this exterior of a cheeky up and coming sports star who just wants to play around. But deep down, he is sweet, caring, loyal and protective. The maturity they both showed towards their situation was well-executed throughout the book. There are plenty of obstacles for the protagonists and there are appearances from some of my favourite characters.
Mr Chance has delved into a subgenre that was out of his comfort zone. If you’ve read the blurb, you’ll know what I mean but I do recommend going into the book blind! The writing’s fluidity kept me invested and hanging onto every word and although I’m not into the sports genre, his impeccable penmanship captivated me. I really enjoyed the fun, angsty Boston Terriers series with its lovable characters. There’s always a bit of steam but that never overshadows the story. A very well-deserved 5-stars and I am looking forward to the next book in this hockey series.
