Neve Angel’s life is all work and no play, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. One of Denver’s top sports reporters, she's fought hard to make it in a male-dominated world, and she won’t back down from a fight with anyone–not even the Hellions’ gruff head coach, Tor Gunnar. Her hostile relationship with the icy Scandinavian is the stuff of local legend.

Tor Gunnar hates dealing with the media; at best, they are a nuisance and at worst, a distraction. And no one distracts him more than the scrappy, sexy reporter who gets him hot under the collar. When he wins a not-so-friendly bet with Neve, he decides it’s high time they either kiss or kill each other, and invites her as a date to an out-of-town wedding.

But what happens when enemies become lovers? Will they be able to smother their sizzling attraction, or is it time to start playing for keeps?

I received a complimentary copy of this book for review consideration.

in review my thoughts

I can always count on Lia Riley to give me good romance with plenty of swoons and just enough sexy times. Head Coach was no different. I am kinda kicking myself for waiting so long to read it though. Once I finally decided to start, I breezed through it in more or less one sitting, totally devouring Tor and Neve’s story.

Head Coach was a flat-out fun book. It was virtually angst-free, light and sweet. I’m a sucker for a good hate-to-love story and Tor and Neve’s fit that bill. I enjoyed their banter and the way everything progressed for them. They were great characters and it was fun to watch them find something real with each other. Plus, they had great chemistry and that gave way to some seriously sexy scenes, which you know I’m always a fan of.

If you’re looking for a quick read as a palate cleanser or just because you’re in the mood for something sweet and sexy that won’t take you too long to get through, check out Head Coach. I’m not even a hockey fan, but I’ve really enjoyed Lia’s Hellions Angels series. I’m definitely going to be sad when it’s over.


“I am to live my life so that my tombstone can say Nevertheless, she persisted.”

She was a thunderclap on a sunny day, a four-leaf clover in a sidewalk crack, hitting every green light the whole drive home.

“Puppies are nice So is chocolate milk. Sex with you would be the reverse of nice. Bad in the best of ways.”

About Lia Riley

Lia Riley writes offbeat New Adult and Contemporary Adult romance. After studying at the University of Montana-Missoula, she scoured the world armed only with a backpack, overconfidence and a terrible sense of direction. She counts shooting vodka with a Ukranian mechanic in Antarctica, sipping yerba mate with gauchos in Chile and swilling XXXX with stationhands in Outback Australia among her accomplishments.

A British literature fanatic at heart, Lia considers Mr. Darcy and Edward Rochester as her fictional boyfriends. Her very patient husband doesn't mind. Much. When not torturing heroes (because c'mon, who doesn't love a good tortured hero?), Lia herds unruly chickens, camps, beach combs, daydreams about future books, wades through a mile-high TBR pile and schemes yet another trip. Right now, Icelandic hot springs and Scottish castles sound mighty fine.
