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 everything2. Hockey is a close second3. 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?

This is my first Victoria Denault book but I’m very sure it won’t be my last! This was a great start to the Moo U series and a fantastic introduction to a new author for me. I loved the feuding neighbors, the secrets and the forbidden romance. This was a fun, sexy and sweet story that I couldn’t put down.
Tate and Maggie’s animosity towards each other came from generations of family disagreements and hatred. The only problem…no one really had the full story, no one knew why they were supposed to dislike each other…they only knew they did. However, as Tate and Maggie realized that the fine line between love and hate was teasing them and playing with their emotions, they began to give in. These two had an uphill battle, a road filled with many obstacles, but they proved, once again, that the heart wants what it wants and that love can and will find a way. I enjoyed their clandestine encounters, their super-hot chemistry, and watching them begrudgingly admit that they felt more than just lust for each other. I loved their great banter and their inner monologues. These two were meant to be and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.
The author brought Moo U and these two families to life with some great secondary characters who helped move the story forward and kept me entertained. Their interactions were sometimes funny, sometimes sad…but without a doubt captivating. This story put the characters through their paces and, through it all, I was rooting for Tate and Maggie’s epic romance. Two things are for sure…one, this book sets the bar high for those to come in this series and, two…I have a new book boyfriend! #TateIsMine
