I’m SO EXCITED that it’s time to review another book in Lasairiona McMaster Snow Pirates series!!! Two For Boarding!
Disarming. Dirty. Dominant.
Easygoing defenseman Austin Morgan doesn’t want for much. Trust fund kid, skilled fighter, and talented hockey player in the peak of his physical prime, life is pretty much going his way…
All except for the sudden breakup of a long-term relationship which has shaken his very identity as a Dom. Until he can trust himself again, relationships are off the cards. But when the team trainer Mackenzie Abbott draws him into her orbit, he can’t get her out of his mind. Not only is she all-the-way vanilla, but they work together, she’s off limits… and she has her own secrets.
Can he learn to trust her enough to accept her into his world? Or will the hidden past she can’t escape ruin it all?
If you’re pucking obsessed with Helena Hunting, Pippa Grant, and Elle Kennedy, you’ll love this steamy, secret marriage romance. Two for Boarding is a full length standalone with no cheating, cliffhangers, and a guaranteed happily ever after.
Welcome to the Minnesota Snow Pirates, where skilled and sexy mother puckers’ lives get turned upside down by strong and badass heroines. Curl up with your next book boyfriend today.
Author note: Austin is a pleasure dom.

Okay. See… here’s the problem. Every time Lasairiona McMaster’s book gives me a new book boyfriend AND book girlfriend, I think, “there’s no way she’s going to write characters I’m more I’m love with…”
…AND THEN SHE DOES 🥵
Two For Boarding is quite a bit different from the first three books in the Snow Pirates series. It showcases a BDSM dynamic, which makes everything a bit more spicy! But my favorite part is that Lasairiona McMaster approached this correctly. I’ve read books with BDSM aspects before that felt very…wrong. Lasairiona McMaster highlights consent. Which is incredibly important in any relationship, but I was just so happy to feel comfortable knowing both characters consented.
I used to avoid contemporary romance because it was just not my thing, but this author deep dives into characters and I’m obsessed with well written characters. Austin and Kenzie are incredible characters. They have their past. I loved watching both of them heal thanks to each other. It’s honestly a beautiful relationship and I was on quite an emotional rollercoaster.
I think I keep saying each new book is my favorite if the series, but that’s just because Lasairiona McMaster just gets better every book. If you haven’t been reading this series, you’re missing out. Each stands alone, but I’ve enjoyed each one so much, I hope you read them all!
Thank you to Lasairiona McMaster for the ARC copy. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Lasairiona McMaster writes sassy, classy and badassy women and strong, yet vulnerable men. She challenges reader’s expectations by openly dealing with mental health issues, often exploring tough-to-handle topics and ‘taboos’ and books with a whole lotta heart.
She can either be found enjoying a gin and lemonade by the Irish sea, or baking sweet treats in her kitchen while singing at the top of her lungs. When she’s ‘home’ in Texas, and isn’t eating fresh-popped popcorn while buying things she has absolutely no need for in Target, she can be found at Chuys eating her body weight in chips and queso and washing it down with a margarita swirl.
