CHECKED (Boston Terriers Hockey #1)
They call him ‘Wilde Man’. Rumor has it he’s an animal on the ice and between the sheets. Like the rest of the female population, I’ve been crushing on Clancy Wilde, the captain of Boston University’s hockey team, since the first time I saw him. Big, blond, and charming, he ticks all the boxes. When we find ourselves at a wedding, drunk and flirting, I know I can finally check this tattooed, bad boy, hockey player off my wish list. One night is all it was meant to be, until I see two pink lines on the pregnancy test. How did the notch on my belt turn into a ball and chain?

I loved loved loved this book!! CHECKED is by far and away one of my favorite romantic comedies of 2019. Jacob Chance excels at writing romantic comedy, and he created something extremely special with CHECKED. What an incredible, heartfelt, sweet, dynamic, and SWOONY read this one is. I fell head over heels in love with the storyline and characters, as well as Jacob’s writing and brilliant sense of humor. I was hooked from beginning to end, and couldn’t have loved Clancy and Tenley’s story more.Get ready to meet your new swoon-worthy book boyfriend because Clancy was freaking swoon-worthy as all get out! I dare anyone not to fall madly in love with Clancy Wilde. Unapologetic in his confidence to the point of cocky but with the biggest heart imaginable when it came to the right person. Seriously, I cannot wait for everyone to fall for Clancy. He's definitely arrogant and can be quite a handful but he's also the sweetest and the most loyal hero ever. I cannot even begin to tell you how wonderful this character is. Truly a standout hero in my opinion. Tenley was a firecracker and I loved her personality. She was kind yet outspoken, and I loved that she gave Clancy a run for his money. Tenley and Clancy’s chemistry together was on fire, and I loved how their relationship progressed throughout. I loved reading all of their playful, hilarious banter and interactions with each other. Clancy and Tenley have become one of my top favorite Jacob Chance couples, and it was an absolute delight reading their love story.CHECKED is a sexy, addicting, swoon-worthy, laugh-out-loud MUST READ romantic comedy. I absolutely LOVED it! Jacob Chance outdid himself with Clancy and Tenley’s love story, and it has been one of my favorite romcoms from him to date. I loved the smiles, the emotions, the passion and just everything about this story. I went deep from the first chapter and did not come back to reality till I finished it. I didn't want it to end. Too good, too perfect and too great.

Clancy, was an amazing hero. And I couldn’t have loved him more. I found his character totally swoon worthy. There was so much more to Clancy then his physical attributes. So, so much more. And Tenley was a perfect match for him. I loved that she acted tough but inside she was vulnerable. Another aspect of the story that was enjoyable was watching Tenley and Clancy work around a long distance relationship, even if it wasn’t an actual relationship they were in. It was difficult for them, being apart. But because neither new the depth of the others feelings, their situation was a bit tense. Even though Tenley and Clancy weren’t always on the pages together, they were always connected. Another amazing read from this author. I highly recommend this book!This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it!

    5 star review of Checked (Boston Terrier’s Hockey #1) by Jacob ChanceIt’s true what they say, all it takes is one night for your life to be changed forever. That’s what happens to Clancy Wilde, captain of Boston University’s hockey team and the woman who was supposed to be a hook-up at his cousin’s wedding, Tenley Davenport.I enjoyed everything about this book.

From start to finish Jacob Chance wove such an engaging story that I couldn’t help but be drawn in.Clancy is focused on making it in the big league and has no time for a relationship despite the fact that he has been attracted to Tenley for years whilst Tenley is focused on graduation having long admired Clancy from afar.I fell hard and fast for Clancy, not only is he hot, but he is totally swoon worthy and an all around nice guy and I loved Tenley, such a sassy and fun woman. These two together were a great pairing and I really wanted them to get their happily ever after. There was humour, drama, angst and romance and suspense which had kept me thoroughly entertained,This is a little gem that I couldn’t put down.

It's also worth noting the amount of detail and research Jacob put into pregnancy for this book. I've had two children and he taught me things I had no idea about. Bravo. If I had to sum up Checked in a few words I'd say it's, Fun. Charming. Sexy. Sweet. Heartfelt. This is a book you'll struggle to put down or forget about anytime soon.

What I love most about Jacobs writing is how he takes time for characters to develop and doesn’t make everything about the “romance” he lets things happen organically and doesn’t throw in a scene just for the sake of having one but oh man watch out when he does because it will blow you away (in more ways than one hahaha)! I can’t wait to see which hockey player comes next because I know I’ll love this team as much as I loved the football team!

    Where do I start? Jacob Chance isn't new to me, I have a few of his books and have loved each and every one of them. He is best known for his sports romances, and although I am not massively into them myself, I can't help but love his. He always seems to be able to give you more than just the sports romances and this book did just that too. In CHECKED, the author gives us Tenlsey and Clancy's love story, and it was one hell of a story, and an amazing start to what promises to an epic series. Ten Where do I start?

He always seems to be able to give you more than just the sports romances and this book did just that too. In CHECKED, the author gives us Tenlsey and Clancy's love story, and it was one hell of a story, and an amazing start to what promises to an epic series. Tensley has been longing for Clancy for years so when the chance to be with him comes up, even if it was just one night, she can't pass it up, but what she thinks is just one night, will ultimately change her life forever, and his when she finds out she is now pregnant with his child. Clancy, in my opinion, is every girl's dream guy. He's hot as hell, he's sweet, he ambitious and bleeds hockey. Everything about him is hockey. He loves it and that isn't about to change anytime soon. He isn't the type to settle down, and if and when he wants someone he can normally get exactly what wants when he wants it. He's every woman's fantasy. But after a night hot, passionate sex with someone, he's only known as a friend for so long. His whole life will start to change and could very change the path he is on in his life. These two were hot as hell... Seriously, and the sexual tension and overall push and pull between them was enough to drive me bat shit crazy and I loved every second of it. These two were meant to be, although they start out as friends, you can clearly see both of them want more.But is Clancy ready to be a father? Will it ruin what friendship they have left after that one night stand, or will it blossom into more? or fall apart altogether? Both of them were not ready for this but they are left to deal with and work themselves out and it is one hell of a story that Mr. Chance has deliveredThe author doesn't shy away from much. He brings heat and passion so intensely into this book, it will leave you squirming in your seat, but putting the heat factor side he also bring much more to the story. There are angst and drama, laughs and even a few moments of sadness. This book truly has it all and I can't wait to read the next in the series.5 Stars!

Everyone needs to read this unforgettable romance, it's original and feisty with lovable leads and an addicting supporting cast. Thanks to Jacob Chance’s deceptively simple writing style, I FELT this story. I felt their journey from s3xmates to soulmates. And Clancy is written so well--as such a dude but also such a freaking romantic. Honestly, the internal churn of this story twists you up because it’s so believable. So real.Checked is an emotional romance that resonates. I highlighted way more passages than I care to admit, and I found myself tearing up, reading the connections and confessions between these two. The story itself is sweet and sexy, a ridiculously addicting page-turning romp. AND it’s moving. The pairing is pretty original. A chill, happy go lucky coed finally gets the man of her dreams, who happens to be a star athlete at the top of his game seven states away. Straight up, read Checked immediately. It deserves space on your Best of 2019 Shelf. Like all of Chance’s men, Clancy is funny, and has a straight up guy vibe that makes you fall for him. He’s just a great lead. He has a strong moral code, and he says what he means. He starts out as your typical college hockey bro with career tunnel vision, or so you think. There's a lot below the surface. Just one bite of Tenley’s forbidden fruit, and he’s pining away. Working a hidden agenda that includes a healthy dose of denial, yet Clancy never swerves into jerk territory. Of course he doesn’t, it’s Jacob Chance. He writes hot hot hot lovable men that feel real. Tenley is the same. I loved how laid back she was. And all the cute details that made her Tenley. She was so relatable, I wanted to hug her. Once Clancy entered the picture, she was a goner. The two of them literary squeezed my heart, and I had to clear the tears to write this review. I love this romance, and I didn’t want it to end. I found myself, “dizzy with longing, but content at the same time.” Tenley said that, but it sums up Checked perfectly.

    I couldn’t get enough of Clancy and Tenley. We’re given a friends to lovers, sports romance and so much more. This is such a down to earth story that has me tearing up at times and smiling non stop. Clancy is such a gentleman and passionate with those he holds near and dear. I admire Tenley and the decisions she makes there are times I want to scream at her to speak up but in the end I would of probably done the same thing myself. A must read that needs to be bumped to the top of your TBR list.

    Checked was another great read by Jacob Chance. Surprise pregnancy isn't really my forte but I enjoyed Checked. In fact, it actually worked out for the best. Clancy was a hotshot hockey player with an incredible work ethic and dedication. Tenley was a quick-witted university student whom had been crushing on her best friend's cousin, Clancy for a while now.These two tried to stay away from each other, but the spark between them was strong and the pull of attraction was inevitable.

Their love started out unconventionally but the pregnancy was the kick they needed to get the ball rolling. They were meant to be but being seven states apart was a wedge that had stopped them. And baby Wilde was the universe's way of ensuring their HEA.

    Clancy is all about that compromise, “you’re right. Beggars can’t be choosers. I’ll take you naked wherever I can.” At least the mam's honest, “eff yes, you’re mine. You’re not one of those women who’s going to say they don’t belong to anyone but yourself are you? Because it’s way too late for that, babe. I’m a possessive a**hole. It’s who am and I don’t see it changing.” I liked this book, I loved Clancy.

I was so immersed in the story but was constantly at war with myself .. “Slow down I never want this story to end” ... “Hurry up, read faster .. I want to see where this goes!!!” To say I loved every second would be a gross understatement. Clancy has just become my new book boyfriend. Once you read all about him you will understand and be trying to fight me for him haha. He is everything you could possibly want in a man. He is sexy, confident, sweet, smart, possessive, funny, talented... ok , the list of his qualities is endless . He’s just that SPECIAL. I adored him . Now Tenley.... she is the kind of heroine I love reading about. She’s stunning ( but doesn’t know it) she’s sweet, kind, caring, smart, and she SASSY with a capital S . I loved her independence, that whole “I don’t need a man to make me whole” is attractive, she definitely was no wall flower, the perfect match for Clancy in my eyes. I could gush about this book ALL DAY. It gave my heart beautiful flutters, I swooned so hard for the both of them, it was perfect . I highly recommend this book.. QUICK go now and grab a copy, you will LOVE IT ( I promise) Congratulations to Jacob on a stellar read. It deserves the ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    Sports Romance perfection done right!!!I never get tired of saying Jacob Chance knows his way around the genre of Sports Romance.

This is the first book in the Boston Terriers Hockey series and I could not wait to read my first Hockey romance. Checked is t Sports Romance perfection done right!!!I never get tired of saying Jacob Chance knows his way around the genre of Sports Romance. He has the ability to connect you to his characters, his level of detail throughout his books is something that elevates him as one of my auto must click authors and his latest book Checked (Boston Terriers Hockey #) is pure sports perfection. This is the first book in the Boston Terriers Hockey series and I could not wait to read my first Hockey romance. Checked is the Story of Clancy Wilde and Tenley Davonport. He is star of the BTHT and is the object of many girls affections. He’s built, deliciously handsome with his long blonde hair and has been Tenley’s crush for as long as she can remember. She is his cousins best friend, she’s stunning and any guy in his right mind could fall hard for her. Any guy that’s not Clancy that is, he has a plan for his hockey career and said plan does not involve having a girlfriend who could distract him from that. When Tenley’s teenage crush gives her the one thing she never thought possible her world is flipped on its axis. Throw in a surprise pregnancy and some downright swoon moments and you can’t help but want to loose yourself through the pages. These two leads are loveable, entertaining and will make your heart burst a little. If you’re a lover of all things Sports Romance and surprise pregnancies then this is a definite must click. I thoroughly enjoyed the first instalment in this new series.

    What can I say about Checked by Jacob Chance that hasn't already been said? I couldn't put it down, Tenley and Clancy's story captivated me. From their witty, playful banter to their sweet moments you can't help but like these two. Tenley met Clancy years earlier. But since he's her best friend's cousin, she's been warned off of him. Warning off someone doesn't always mean they'll deny their attractions, especially if reciprocated.

Tenley is an interesting character IMO, but you'd have to read to figure out why I mean this because I'm not dropping spoilers.Clancy, Clancy, Clancy. Captain of the Boston Terriers hockey team. President of his Frat. Shoulder length golden locks. Loyal. Protective. A beast on and off the ice. Smart. Driven. Swoon worthy. Opps, was I making a check list for why he's a perfect boyfriend to have?Note to self: do not read this author when at work. Every time I had to put the book down to do something it was met with a scowl and growl. From page one to the end I was pulled into Tenley and Clancy's story. Curious as to what would happen next during the buildup to the climax. Curious as to how Mr. Chance would bring hockey into the mix (did I mention that I'm a hockey girl?). The story was evenly paced and well thought out. Bravo Mr. Chance, if I could give you more than 5 stars I would!

They have interesting obstacles to overcome including her living in Washington D.C. and him living in Boston. I really enjoyed this story. It is the first book that I read by Jacob Chance. I appreciate his writing style and will read more books by him in the future. I recommend this book to people who enjoy sports romances. I look forward to reading additional books in this series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Now if only she can figure out how to tell Clancy the news.This was an amazing story, and had me hooked right from the start. I was not ready for this story to end, but can't wait to see what comes next. Drama, a hot naughty bit or two, and some hockey. I gave this 4.5 stars.

    Checked is the latest romantic sports book from Jacob Chance and it's hockey-licious. We have waited for eva for Clancey's book and it's finally arrived so let me say , when a Jacob Chance book is released I drop anything and everything to sit down and devour his words ... usually in one sitting. He doesn't just write sports books or romance novels. He writes with emotion to give his characters emotions not just scenes.

He doesn't just write sports books or romance novels. He writes with emotion to give his characters emotions not just scenes. We met and fell in love with these characters in previous books and not much has changed. He is still the cocky, hockey stud with a big heart. I don't want to give too much away but there are some surprises.So if you love to read about sports, emotionally charged characters with interesting lives then Jacob Chance is your author.

His storylines have me wanting to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next. The chemistry between Clancy and Tenley is sizzling. Checked also had me feeling very emotional in parts to laughing hysterically in others. I can’t praise this book enough and it leads the Boston Terrier hockey series off to a flying start. Highly recommended. 5 Stars.
