Ransom Summary

Money, power, prestige…reject

Love me, then leave me. It’s been the story of my life, from the grandfather who refused to acknowledge my mom, to my own father... even my wife, who wrote a tell-all on her way out. 

Hockey’s all I have to call my own, since the Coulter name was denied to me.

I’ve looked forward all season to being alone in my cabin, free from the tabloid chatter. I didn’t expect my high-school crush to be home… or to need my rescue after an accident in a storm.

Lexa is the woman of my dreams, the one I was always too scared to try for--or even talk to. Stranded together, we make our own heat, in more ways than one. I know I’m no good for her; I know she’ll leave me like everyone does. And she’ll destroy me on her way out.

We had then. We have now. Convincing her to be mine always would be the perfect hat trick.

Ransoms5 star

I loved this story55


Needs better editing3 star

I enjoyed the story fine, however the number of errors not caught by the editor (if there was one) made it confusing and difficult to read at times. Let me put it this way; the storytelling is enough that I would be willing to read more by this author, however the poor editing means that I would be unwilling to pay to do so.35


Needs a real editor1 star

This book is a mess with the grammar. Sometimes it’s in first person and sometimes in third person in the same sentence. The story line stars slow than bang it is a rush to the finish. And it is so short for the storyline. Really disappointing.15


Ransom5 star

Love Ransom! Love this series!!!5 star

There is really nothing better than sports and romance in my book! I love this series!!! Ransom and Lexa are hot. Their relationship has some ups and downs but their chemistry is perfect! Once I started I couldn't put it down! One of my favorites in the series!!! I highly recommend!!!55


Great read5 star

This is a Great book. I love this series by Nana Malone. Ransom Cox goes home after winning the cup to spend his day with the cup with his mom. Lexa Carlisle is back home trying to get over a bad break up and bad work experience. The two of them both liked each other in high school but they never admitted it to the other. Can they make it work. Will some secrets hurt their chances though. This is a great read.55


Love this series!4 star

Cox meets his match & she doesn't play hockey! These two go way back but neither had enough confidence to pursue their attraction to one another. Now they are older, wiser and a tad bolder but relationship shy, lol. Enjoyed this addition to the series and I am looking forward to go this saga will process. I love the hook at the ending....shocking!45


When you finally get the one that got away4 star

Watching Ransom overcome his abandonment issues while watching Lexa accept that Ransom is finally the right guy was a treat. These characters are so funny. And Ransom and his mom are adorable. Fun read!45


Love Ransom!5 star

ansom is every girl dream guy, he is handsome, a great hockey player, and according to a tell all book he is very well endowed in more ways than one. But those things are not what are important to him, in fact they seem to be his curse and he thinks that the only thing he is good for is to be left behind. Having a long list of people that has abandoned or left him make him believes he does not deserve love, but that crush from High School & first crush will prove him wrong. Lexa returns home to sort her life and try to figure out why everything in her life imploded, not realizing that her dream guy, her Handsome Cox will give her the story of her life and will turn her life upside down. This is not your ordinary Coulter story. Ransom & Lexa have a ride full of surprises, bumps & bruises, heartache, lots of love, and very hot sexy passion. They will find love when they least expect it and both will find out that not all that is written, necessary is the truth.55


Say What??5 star

Props to Nana for giving us a hint that the famous Coulters might have some more family. I just never expected it to come this fast or be so good. Ransom brings the Coulters back down to earth and makes me wonder even more about Gramps and his back story. I liked that unlike the other Coulters, Ransom did not grow up in wealth. I also loved the love story. I would like to know how both of the main characters got their names. They are getting pretty weird in a cute sort of way. Both characters are going through some serious life changes and nursing a hell of a crush on the other that neither knows about.55
