REVIEW | Las Vegas Sidewinders: Dominic by Kat Mizera

I received an advanced/review copy of this book. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content and honesty of my review.

Dominic by Kat Mizera
Series: Las Vegas Sidewinders #1

Dom Gianni takes a lot of punishment in the hockey rink, but when he sees Molly McCarran getting beaten up by her husband, he’s ready to throw down his gloves and fight for her. But Molly isn’t about to trust another man—and Dom is already skating on thin ice with his NHL-mandated probation. Besides, how could a hotshot player like Dom really care about a woman so much older than he? Then a kidnapping raises the stakes. If Molly can’t believe in Dom, and if he can’t dig deep to save her, it might be the final buzzer for them both.

This was my first read by Kat Mizera, but I’m certain it won’t be my last. This book touched on several issues I’m passionate about: domestic abuse, insecurities, and learning to love again. I have to admit that I was thrown off by the age difference between the two characters, but Kat writes it so well that you come to realize age really is nothing but a number for the two of them. The heroine of the story, Molly, is incredibly concerned that Dom won’t find her attractive because of her age, what she deems to be her “frumpy” appearance, and her naïveté about the world, but right from the start, Dom finds he cannot stay away from this woman with the eyes that speak to his soul. They soon start on a passionate love affair, all the while attempting to keep her away from her incredibly abusive policeman husband who thinks he is above the law.

There are several twists and turns in this story–some I didn’t see coming at all–that will keep your eyes glued to the pages. I’m very impressed with Kat’s writing. Give this lovely novel a chance, you might just find a new favorite author 🙂
