Book Review: Firebird

by Jennifer Loring

Stephanie Hartwell is a journalist chasing the story of her career…

When superstar hockey player and notorious bad boy Aleksandr Volynsky is traded to the Seattle Earthquakes in a blockbuster deal, Stephanie demands the opportunity to prove herself by scoring an exclusive interview with a man with no love for the media…the same man she once thought, as a naïve teenager, she’d someday marry.

An Olympian and Stanley Cup Champion, Aleksandr has achieved every goal he’s ever set…

Now expected to carry a failing team on his shoulders, Aleksandr’s troubles deepen when he encounters Stephanie after a season-opening loss. His lifestyle of drinking and random hookups has been a futile attempt to forget the beautiful tomboy who stole his heart nine years ago. And worse, fame and fortune have made it impossible for him to trust anyone—especially Stephanie, who is engaged to another man.

Romance rekindles, but tragedy reveals Aleksandr’s dark side…

Being with Aleksandr in the first place jeopardizes Stephanie’s journalistic integrity and threatens her career, and when he spirals out of control, it reawakens fears from her own history, making her unable to commit to a future with him.

When Aleksandr discovers the truth behind his self-destructive behavior, will his newfound self-awareness be enough to convince Stephanie to give him one last chance…

Or will his revelation drive her away for good?

Toni's thoughts: **ARC provided in exchange for an honest review** I absolutely loved the beginning of this book which is why it pains me to say the last half just fell flat for me. I fell in love with both the characters and my heart hurt for the things that they had to go through and smile at other times. A bit past the middle of the book it turned into the back and forth feelings for the both of them. Then it seemed like a lot of filler information that really didn't need to be in the book was added and it made the book a bit choppy for me and drawn out. The characters were great and the story line was great as well just a little to much added material that could have been left out.
