Clean Sweep: The Venom Series One - V. L. Locey

Jane Bratkowski just signed on to be the new head coach for the Philadelphia Venom professional women’s hockey team.  The last thing she expected was to have to work with her ex-husband, Tore Ahberg, head of European Scouting for the Wildcats.


V.L Locey scores with Clean Sweep!  This book is a fabulous start to the Venom Series, and a wonderful compliment as a spin-off of the To Love a Wildcat Series.


Clean Sweep is told from Jane’s point of view.  She is extremely amusing and had me smiling/laughing a lot throughout the novel.  I like Jane.  She is down to earth and real.  Her character is very believable.   V.L. Locey does a great job with Tore’s character.  He definitely comes off as being European.  He is a good guy.  Tore and Jane divorced due to a tragedy that they could not overcome at the time.  It was clear that the two never stopped loving each other.  I love that faith intervenes and gives them a second chance.


The plot was heartfelt and emotional.  The story is convincing and well resolved.  As always, Locey’s hockey scenes are well-written and believable.  I could totally picture what is happening on the ice. This series is very timely with the National Women's Hockey League being established this year.  The support characters are great.  The assistant coaches seem the perfect fit to work with Jane.  I am looking forward to reading more about them in the future.
