Kerry’s 3.5 Blush Review
Who’s ready for some hockey? Big Stick by R.C. Stephens is a sports romance, enemies to lovers story with a heroine who is not a puck bunnie. The story was fast paced, and then it hit a bump, stalled for a bit then picked back up again. I always enjoy R.C. Stephens’s books, but this is a bit different from what she normally writes.
Dawn’s 3 Blush Review
Big Stick by RC Stephens is an enemies to lovers, sort of second chance, hockey romance. It dabbles in a bit of everything. However, there wasn’t much of the hockey aspect involved throughout which was fine by me. It’s a cute read that is centered around three childhood friends. Oli and Flynn who are twins and their best friend, Myles.
They all grew up together. More like siblings. Their story takes place during present day where Oli and Myles are professional hockey players and have remained extremely close. Flynn is now a lawyer working her way up the ladder. She just went through a bad break up with her jerk boyfriend…. With no where to go, she moves into Oli’s apartment which is across the hall from Myles. Just her luck, now she will be forced to see her ex-best friend, Myles, on daily basis.
For most of the book, it’s a mystery as to why Flynn and Myles are not friends anymore, although they have both been crushing on each other since childhood and almost ended up together in the past. There is a lot of back and forth between them that I found frustrating. They would say one thing and do another. Their reasoning for their estranged relationship was a little hard to believe. I also found their dialogue and actions very immature at times for 25 year old adults. However, I did like them. They were so sweet and obviously loved each other. I just wanted them
to get their shit together.
I especially loved the brother/sister bond between Oli and Flynn. They were each other’s ride or die!! I wish there would have been flashbacks to their past. I think that would have totally enhanced their story and made me feel more connected to them. I wanted to see their bond and feel it!
In summary, Big Stick is not the usual read you get from RC Stephens. This one is more carefree. Less intense. It’s a quick, good read with likeable characters.

About R.C. Stephens
As far back as R.C. Stephens can remember she was a sucker for a good romance. Of course there had to be a prince charming even if he ultimately was a dark knight and there had to be a happy ending.
She watched the movie Dirty Dancing way too many times growing up and Jean Claude Van Damme movies too. Go figure!
After years of saying she would write a book one day, she finally put pen to paper and carved out the plot line for what would eventually become the best selling Twisted Series. Now R.C. is just finishing up her tenth book and can’t seem to stop the stories running through her mind.
