Episode 44: Hockey Love

For this episode, I did something a little different. I got one of my co-workers, Chris Sands to read a romance. He picked Power Play by Maria Luis. In this episode you can hear Chris be grumpy about the hockey inaccuracies, find out if he had any pants feelings and so much more. I apologize for the coughing and cackling. 

Chris is the host of the Uncapped podcast. For his next book, I have assigned Bad Boys Do by Victoria Dahl.
