What if Romeo wore hockey skates, and Juliet was raised on a farm next door?

As a life-long Vermonter, there are three beliefs I’ve always held true:
1. Our family farm is everything
2. Hockey is a close second
3. The Todds next door are our sworn enemies

But this season will test everything I stand for.

I have an illicit side job that could cost me my hockey scholarship. And now Maggie Todd knows my secret. She’s waiting for the right moment to use it against me. But every time I face off against her, I learn things I shouldn’t want to know. Like how deeply her competitive streak runs, and how sexy that is. And how easy it is to make her blush… everywhere.

An Adler and a Todd cannot be lovers. Breaking that rule is like pulling a pin on a grenade--everything in my life could blow up. Can we surrender to these feelings… or will our families’ feud make us its next casualty?

Blindsided by Victoria Denault is the first interconnected standalone in the MOO U series (connected to Sarina Bowen's World of True North universe) and the perfect introduction into this amazing new world full of sexy college hockey players that will pull on your heartstrings. This hilariously funny enemies-to-lovers romance packed in all the laughs along with some steamy and swoon-worthy moments that left me captivated the entire time.

Magnolia "Maggie" Todd and Tate Adler's families are sworn enemies, which means they should have NEVER found themselves tangled up in any sort of romantic relationship with each other, but with chemistry so off the charts between them, it's no surprise that they did. There's a thin line between hate and love that these two shouldn't have crossed, but once that line is broken there is NO going back!

The feuding family drama between the Todd and Adler families added to the storyline and I really loved the surprise as to how it all began. Basically be prepared for that OMFG moment towards the end because it will definitely blow your mind. Overall, a great start to a new interconnect series of standalones and I cannot wait to read all of the books in the Moo U universe, especially if I keep discovering new authors like this amazing gem right here. Victoria Denault did a phenomenal job setting things up and she will surely gain some new readers with this story!
