GoodReads ★ Amazon ★ B&N ★ TBD
Everyone loves hockey superstar Pierce Miller. Everyone except Lia Bailey.
When the two are forced to teach a skating class to save the rink, Lia’s not sure she’ll survive the pressure of Nationals and Pierce’s ego. Not only can’t he remember her name, he signed her bottle of water like she was one of his groupies. Ugh.
But if there’s one thing Lia knows better than figure skating, it’s hockey. Hoping to take his ego down a notch—or seven—she logs into his team website under an anonymous name to give him pointers on his less-than-stellar playing.
Turns out, Pierce isn’t arrogant at all. And they have a lot in common. Too bad he’s falling for the anonymous girl online. No matter how much fun they’re starting to have in real life, she’s afraid he’s going to choose fake-Lia over the real one...
Disclaimer: This book contains a swoony hockey player (and his equally swoony friends!), one-too-many social media accounts, kisses that’ll melt ice, and a secret identity that might not be so secret after all...
I've mentioned that I'm working on a young adult romance novel that has to do with hockey, so I've been looking for comps. Entangled Teen's Crush imprint has definitely come in handy, so I've been reading a lot teen romance that has hockey in it somehow. So um...get used to it! I immediately bought Erin Fletcher's All Laced Up because it sounded so cute and it definitely did not disappoint!
I loved the plot of this novel, because I love the idea of using online forums to have a connection with someone, but then in real life things are a little different between the two characters. Pierce is kind of a tool to Lia, so I get why she is so angry at him. I also think he's just an oblivious boy, so I do give him the benefit of the doubt. I did really enjoy seeing their relationship develop.

I love the hockey aspect of the novel, but also the ice skating on Lia's part too! I'm a kid that was around during the hey day of Michelle Kwan and Tara Lipinski so I'm kind of interested in both sports. I loved all the awesome hockey knowledge in this one. It was also interesting to read about Lia's struggle with her Dad's death and how watching hockey without him has been really hard for her.

I went back and forth on what I wanted to rate this book, but I decided to give it five stars because I was so consumed with reading this one I read it within a couple days. I loved reading about Pierce and Lia's romance. I've already read the second book in this series too, which is more of a companion novel than a direct sequel. I definitely would love for there to be more books in this series. Give me all the hockey romances!
