4.8 Stars
From 69 Reviews

When hockey fans hear the name Alex Parker, they should think of the best defenseman in the NHL and my penalty kill record. Instead, they think of women and scandals. I have no shortage of puck bunnies throwing themselves at me. Too bad I chose the wrong one—the team owner’s granddaughter. So, they sent me packing to Philadelphia to play for the Flyers, one of the worst teams in the league. I wasn’t ready to start over, not after I was so close to the Stanley Cup.

My agent wants me to clean up my act. She says I drink too much. I sleep around too much. I never expected her to be my biggest weakness. I never thought she’d be the one who would make me a better man. But she has rules about dating clients. Good thing I like breaking them.

Parker is a standalone novel with a HEA and the first book in the international bestselling Face-Off Series.

Fun, Sexy, Steamy read!

by Stephanie Ditmore

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I absolutely loved this book and can’t wait to see what’s to come. I loved Alex and Charlotte together. It starts off on a rocky road, but with perseverance, trust and hope for a future you can conquer anything. Charlotte has been assigned to Alex Parker the hockey player who finds trouble around every corner, trying to deal with the death of his father and using alcohol and women the cope. Charlotte is in charge of changing his image if that is even possible. This book takes you on a journey of discovery of two people who are broken and looking for that special person to fill the void. I couldn’t put this book down, I was captivated right from the start. Jillian you are amazing and can’t wait to see what you give us next. I highly recommend this book, give it a read to find out what happens with this couple, you won’t be disappointed.

Must add to your TBR list!

by Pat W

Second book that I have read by Jillian Quinn and she has another hit with Parker! Jillian writes great storylines effortlessly and her characters are so well defined that you get hooked the minute you turn the first page and stay that way until the very last page. I hated to see this book end! I look forward to Jillian's next book.

I loved this book! It was very entertaining with great characters and storyline. Alex Parker is a NHL hockey player that was transferred to another team for his bad boy ways. Charlotte coach is his new sports agent whose now in charge of him. These two were so good together. The perfect amount of romance and sexiness with a bit of drama thrown in. This is the beginning of an amazing series.

Great start to the Series!

I’m so glad I finally got to meet Parker and Coach. I had read a few of the other books in the series first and felt like I was missing something. There is a refreshing style to this book. There are some funny moments, but a deep story at the same time. Coach is actually Parker’s agent and when she realizes that he has some demons to deal with off the ice, she takes control. Something about her is surprisingly ok for Parker. Ever since his father passed 6 months ago his life hasn’t been the same, but he’s been unable to confide in anyone.

So, I totally loved them although at times there were a few holes in the story. Characters showed up with no introduction, for example. A few times I found myself re-reading to try to make sure I didn’t miss something. Overall a very good story and start to the series.

Game On!

by Anonymous

Alex is a professional hockey player and has been dealing with his father’s death by finding solace in alcohol and women which is leading to negative publicity. His team decides to trade him and he moves from a playoff team to the cellar dwellers. Charlotte is a highly respected sports agent and she is tasked with transitioning Alex to the new team and ensure that he tows the line. Neither is happy to be stuck with the other and Charlotte will not put up any crap from Alex. The more time they spend together the closer they become and Charlotte sees the real Alex that he hides underneath his arrogant persona. Will they be able to overcome the heartbreak of their pasts and heal each other so that they may have a bright future? The chemistry between the two was hot and the humor was the icing on the cake.

Parker is a fantastic Read!

by Countygirl

I received a free copy of this book via BooksproutJillian Quinn this book is great. I really enjoy hockey. So I was very intrigued to see how this story would go. I was not disappointed. I was drawn in and did not want to put it down. There was the right balance of story, emotions and heat. Parker is a cocky hockey player. The passing of his dad put him in a tailspin that cost him dearly personally and professionally. He was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers which was not where he should be, he should be playing for a team in the running for the Stanley cup. Charlotte (Coach) is a sports agent. She will now be in charge of Parker. She has to get him back on track. It should just be a job but they have a connection. They both lost someone dear. Through the process of getting Parker back on the right path they develop feelings for each other. Does their connection heal them both ? Does Parker score the winning goal in the game and in life? Read the book to find out. Well worth it. I am voluntarily leaving this review after receiving an advance reader copy of this book.

Loved Parker

by Karin B

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I loved Parker!!! It had great dialogue, great writing, it was amusing & light and I loved Alex and Charolette. This is my second book by Jillian Quinn and I adored it and have become a huge fan of her style. She draws you in from the beginning with her characters.

I loved Alex from the beginning and his wtf moment, I was smiling at his the fact he was such a wreck in a amusing way. Alex wakes up not knowing where he is, who he's with or how he got there when he gets a call from his agent telling him his off the ice tactics have got him traded to one of the worst teams in the NHL. Even though Alex is one of the best he's been on a downward spiral ever since his dads death.

Charolette is a kick butt sports agent who is strong, smart, independent and not interested in Alex in the slightest. Even though she's attracted to Alex she wants nothing to do with him cause of his reputation and liaisons found on YouTube lol. Alex can't fathom the fact that he's being rejected and realizes Charolette is not the typical groupie type he's use to.

When Charolette and Alex really get to know each other they find the similarities they have and Charolette starts to see the real Alex and what's behind the facade.

I loved seeing the change that Charolette brought in Alex, he wanted to make her proud and it was sweet to read.

This was such a good hot read!!

This was a fantastic story by Jillian. This is the 1st book in her Face Off Series and "Wow" this book just pulled me in right from the start and I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to read what happened next and mercy talk about some hot and heavy sex scenes phew when these 2 characters Alex & Charlotte were around each other it was like watching a keg of dynamite just waiting to be lit. If you like bad boy hockey player's and the spunky girl's who tame them then you need to start with this book and grab the other's in the series you'll fall in love with them. I'd definitely would recommend this as a must read.

Hot Hockey Romance

by Aunt G

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Parker by Jillian Quinn is a good book. I kind of found Coach's quick change in attitude off putting. I much preferred when she had her ball-busting, large and in charge attitude over her man dazzled attitude. Other than that I enjoyed the book. The writing and story was good, the characters were entertaining and there was a lot of sizzle and heat.

Parker for the win!!!

by Angeloris

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I love Parker!!! I loved how tender he was with Coach, especially since she wasn't expecting it. I didn't get most of the sports references, but that did not take away from the romance story at all. It was full of love, heat & humour. I enjoyed the sports-themed sex, too!

Ms. Quinn did a great job helping us understand how both main characters got to where they were. For Coach, it was a desire to be better than her past, while for Parker, it was his dad that mattered the most in his life.

I can't wait to read the rest of this series!!
