Release Blitz: THe Forward Must Cry by Xavier Neal

The Forward Must Cry, an all-new standalone Romantic Comedy in the Hockey Gods series by Bestselling author Xavier Neal is NOW LIVE!

What to expect

🏒 Fallen Hockey Gods
🏒 A snarky heroine
🏒 A complicated romance
🏒 A determined rule breaker
🏒 scorching chemistry

Once upon a time, the Vlasta Vipers hockey team was so incredible — on and off the ice — they were almost mythical.

Rightfully, labeled as legends.

Affectionately, worshiped in the sheets like rock stars.

However, when their glorious reign came crashing to an end, the idols lost much more than their treasured titles.

They became the laughingstock of locker rooms.

Oh, and of course, the punchline to every bad joke on campus.

Puck Bunnies continued hopping into their beds because, well, that's what Puck Bunnies do.
All hope seemed completely lost until last season when a new head coach emerged to help put them back on their golden thrones.


Tucker Gillette, the team's right winger, is causing so much commotion off the ice — instead of just on — that new rules have to be added to their code of conduct to help ensure another season of victory.

Don't sleep with other athletes — their coaches hate it.

Don't drool over the team's mascot once you realize it's a fine AF, flexible female instead of a freckled freshman.

And, definitely, don't try to date said mascot or fall face first in love with her simply so your brother — who is the lead singer in her favorite metal band — can't.

Will this right-wing troublemaker become a champion in the game of romance, or will this be his biggest loss yet?

The Forward Must Cry is book 3 in the Hockey Gods series by Neal and it tells the story of Gillette and Mo. 

I have to say first and foremost that I've been looking forward to reading this book and seeing where it took me, not just for the hockey angle, but to see how the romance played out as well. 

I loved Mo's character, she isn't your typical heroine, which made her all the more interesting and kept me hooked on every word. I needed to see just what would come from her next.  Gillette also wasn't the cocky hockey man I expected, don't get me wrong, he fit the bill but there were extra layers to him that as they were peeled back, I knew the heart of this man was different than the exterior gave off. 

This story delivers on the Feels from the start, sucking you in and keeping your heart on the line.  I loved how the humor blended with the more serious bits and how the chemistry and connection was palpable from the pages.   

If you love sports romance, characters who aren't perfect and the perfect amount of romance with your comic relief - look no further than this story.
