Sterling: A Carolina Reapers Novel by Samantha Whiskey

I decided to try to read more of my Kindle Unlimited books. Sterling: A Carolina Reapers Novel was up next. The ads on my Kindle got me on this one. I wouldn’t have started with the last book of the series otherwise.

Quote from Sterling by Samantha Whiskey

Jansen Sterling is a professional hockey player, but with a secret. His biological father is an NHL legend. No one knows that Sterling’s half-brother is Maxim Zolotov until both are signed with the Carolina Reapers. Sterling demands to be let out of his contract when he finds out about Maxim.

Quote from Sterling by Samantha Whiskey

One of two game day coordinators that has been hired for the Carolina Reapers hockey team is London Foster. She battles to win a permanent position. As the little sister to one of the team members, London tries to get out of his shadow.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In Sterling, Jansen Sterling and London Foster meet on his first day back at the arena. During a power outage, they are stuck in an elevator together. Unfortunately, London is claustrophobic (and boy if I wouldn’t have been the same). Sterling helps keep her calm while feeling some major sparkage.

Yet, when they get rescued, one of the first people London turns to is not Sterling, but his half-brother, Maxim. Of course, Sterling is not a happy camper about that one. Their relationship is full of ups and downs .


While not quite as quick a read as the last book, Sterling was a good read. I loved the back story of Sterling and his mom. I wish they could have communicated better, but then that wouldn’t have caused so much conflict, right? While there are more in this series, I’m not sure if I’m going to read more. This book was good, but not compelling enough to make me run to read more. If you’re a fan of sports romances, I would recommend this one.

And in case you hadn’t figured it out, my plan for 2021 is to write a blog post for each book I read. Last year, I read 150 books. We’ll see how I do this year.
