What a difference a year makes. Twelve months ago, Victor Kalinski was one of the best and most controversial ice hockey players in the pros. This year he’s playing in the minors, has a paternity case pending, and has just been vindictively outed to the world by one of his own teammates.
But he seems to find life in the tiny town of Cayuga to his liking. A large part of that is Dan Arou, the Cougars’ alternate captain and the man who now holds Victor’s heart. Surely venomous, viper-tongued Victor hasn’t been mellowed by love!
Well, perhaps a little. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t intend to get sweet revenge on those who’ve hurt the man he loves and the friends he’s somehow made along the way.

Review: Full Strength is the third and final book in VL Locey’s brilliant series about sarcastic and abrasive hockey player Victor Kalinski and his lover Dan Arou. If you haven’t read the first 2 books, you need to – I’m pretty sure this could work as a standalone but to be honest all the emotion and getting used to/falling in love with Victor’s acerbic tongue right along with Dan is a real pleasure.
In book 2 we left off with the devastating news to Dan that Victor, who is really bad when it comes to handling his own emotions, struck out at Dan and ended up having a rather drunk one night stand. The result of which was the question, is Victor going to be a daddy? But one year later ,Victor is beginning to settle down it seems, Dan forgave him back in book 2, and the couple are more than happy in their relationship. Hell, even the baby-mamma claims Dan as the baby’s second father. Of course, their careers on the ice are still complicated (mostly because of their sexuality) and when Victor sees a threat to Dan’s career he jumps to make it better.
Victor and Dan are both wonderful characters. When I first read book 1, I was left confused as to why I loved Victor so much despite the man being a bit of a dick, and not in a good way. These two guys have evolved so much over the course the series – book 1 was more Vic’s story, book 2 was more Dan’s story, and finally in book 3 the guys seem to be sharing the limelight properly.
This is a great and satisfying ending to Vic and Dan’s story. If you’ve been invested from the start you will not be disappointed. I have to say that I’m sorry to that their story has finished, so I expect that I may be rereading their story sometime soon.
