Mile High by Liz Tomforde


Zanders: Chicago hockey isn’t complete without me—everyone’s favorite player to hate. I know my role, and I play it well. In fact, I thoroughly enjoy spending the majority of my game time in the penalty box before leaving the arena with a new girl on my arm each night.

What I don’t like is the new flight attendant on our team’s private plane. She works for me, not the other way around. But I’ll be sure to remind her of that, and I can guarantee, by the end of the season, she’ll be begging to quit her job.

But every road trip blurs the lines, and I can’t quite figure out if I keep pushing that flight attendant call button in order to push her buttons or if it’s more than that.

Stevie: I’ve been a flight attendant for years. I thought I’d see it all, but when my new job lands me onboard working for the most egotistical and self-righteous diva in the NHL, I start to second guess everything. Including the promise I made to myself of never hooking up with an athlete again . . . no matter how annoyingly tempting he may be.

Zanders is unfiltered, unapologetic, and too attractive for his own good. He loves his image, but I hate everything about it.

Everything but him.

Contains mature themes.

Overall Rating

5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I love Mile High so much! I originally did not like Zanders whatsoever, but grew to be absolutely obsessed with this man. I love how he was so obsessed with Stevie. And I just loved how strong Stevie was as a female main character.

This story did feel long, but I enjoyed the fact that this was a little bit on the long side because I wanted to spend as much time as possible with this couple. It was super spicy, and there was a lot of great mental health rep, and I love the fact that there’s a lot of body positivity in the story as well. There was also a lot of really great banter as Stevie and Evan really got to know each other. Their chemistry is undeniable.

The writing was just beautiful and Evan Zanders is my man. This was my first book from this author, but it definitely won’t be my last, and I’m looking forward to reading more from this series. I highly recommend!
