Mile High By Liz Tomforde Book Review

Mile High By Liz Tomforde Book Review. Hockey romance

Mile High is the first book in Liz Tomforde’s Windy City series. This book is like crack, you know it’s kind of bad for you, but you can’t stop chasing the high.

This is a long book, it’s also a book full of drama and huge penises. It was almost too long for me, but the drama of everything just kept me racing through it. There were some things that annoyed me, but it was overall still a fun read.

Mile High Plot

ZANDERS: Chicago hockey isn’t complete without me – everyone’s favourite 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 seen 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. Evan Zanders is unfiltered, unapologetic, and too attractive for his own good. He loves his image, but I hate everything about it. Everything but him.

Mile High Review

There’s a few things I loved, and a few things that annoyed me, so let’s get into it.

I enjoyed the characters. The audacity, confidence and issues of Zanders were great. He was a funny, sexy character with an enjoyable arc. Stevie was also great. I liked the body image positivity that she had to build and her saucy banter with Zanders.

The Hockey aspect and the cast of characters that went with it was fun and sexy, and Zanders and Stevies clandestine hookups were a huge part of the appeal.

Something, that was most noticeable at the beginning was that Tomforde liked to monologue. Instead of showing us, or leaving something to be revealed she just info dumped backstories or feelings on us.

The actual drama that came between the main characters was one of those romance book ones where they’re just kind of making each other sad while still showing how much they love each other, so you’re just left feeling a bit annoyed. Like, they so obviously still liked each other so why were they continuing the pain.


Mile high was sexy and funny and a read that gripped me from start to finish. Sure there were some things wrong with it, and at one point I looked at how many pages I had to go and thought, what else am I going to read about. But it’s like crack, once you start you can’t stop.
