Once again I was drawn into the story the moment I started reading. It is well written and steady paced. At one point I started to think this book wasn’t for me as Paul comes from a religious background and I don’t care much for “those books”. I was glad I kept on reading, though. A.E. Wasp did a wonderful job opening the discussion about believers and nonbelievers. Paul is struggling with his sexuality versus all he learned in his upbringing in a religious environment. It is hard to bend your mind after more than twenty years. And it is not one decisive moment. No, it is a slow but thorough process that makes it the more realistic. Robbie is with him all the way although he can’t understand Paul’s beliefs. I loved how they kept on talking about it with respect towards the other.
Besides these more serious situations, there is a lot of fun and laughter, sexy scenes in and outside the bedroom, great supporting characters (with an appearance from Bryce and Dakota of City Boy).
In contrast to the first book, there is more time on the ice and actual play situations which is a big plus.
This is the second installment in the series but can be read as a standalone. However, as there are recurring characters you might enjoy it better if you read the first book as well.
I was honored with an advanced reader copy and am voluntarily leaving a review of this book.
In book one, Robbie is dealing with his boyfriend leaving him because while Robbie doesn’t hide his sexuality, he doesn’t advertise it either. And being in the NHL, he doesn’t want to deal with all the repercussion of being an ‘out’ player.
Enter the new guy on the team, one that Robbie is all too familiar with, a nemesis from their college day. A very closeted Paul. A Paul who has been listening to his father and church about the sins of being gay. Paul is still feeling guilt about their first encounter back in college. The one that was the best night of his life, that quickly turned into the worst morning of his life. There was something about Robbie that wouldn’t leave him.
As you read, you feel the emotional conflict Paul is going through. Trying to find out who he is and balancing that against what he’s been taught all his life. You feel his panic and fear. You also understand Robbie’s point of view. How could a God that is supposed to be about love, hate him because of who he loves? Watching the two of them work their way to their HEA is a satisfying read.
I loved this story. Other than minor editing errors, it was well written. The plot and pacing carry you along to the end. You don’t want to put the book down till you’re done. I can’t wait to read the next story in this series.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
