Love of the Game us a book not to be missed. It's a story of how damaging love can be when done wrong and how healing it can be when done right. The main characters, Charlie and Hannes are the perfect foil for each other. Their strengths and weaknesses are portrayed in such a way the reader will be sucked in from page one. The secondary characters are so well woven into the story that they have you falling in love with them as well.
I hope this is book one in a series. I definitely want more of the secondary characters, they deserve their own stories. Also would love to learn the back story of Marc and Luc.
Please please make this a series.
Charles Morin is an ex-submissive reporter with a major chip on his shoulder. To the world he's a deviant and an a$$hole. Charlie is smart, funny, sarcastic, scared, embarrassed and yes, an a$$hole. He's been badly hurt and hides his pain with anger and sarcasm. It will take a special man to see through his outward behavior to find the good below the surface. Charlie never believes that man could be a hockey playing jock!
Johannes Alm is 23 and has just moved to Canada from Switzerland to play in the NHL. He's big, strong, dominate, kind, sweet and very sexy. Hannes is not in the closet at home, but not out in Canada. A chance encounter with Charlie at the airport on his way to Canada will change the course of Hannes life. For a guy that doesn't make too many waves, he causes quite a splash in Canada.
This book deals with the tough subject of past abuse with sensitivity and very realistically. The struggles Charlie goes through while healing, is difficult to watch at times, but the unconditional support Johannes shows him is inspiring.They have a lot to overcome to be together, but they each see something in the other that makes it impossible to walk away. I enjoyed this book and loved the secondary characters so much, I'm hoping for an Andrew book. I definitely recommend!
After indulging in Ms. Novak’s paranormal world, I gladly delved into this contemporary tale. I’m no hockey fan, but can’t seem to keep myself from devouring any and all stories that revolve around sports and the men that play them. Games, you say? Oh yes. Play on...
Young, buff Hannes has an unlikely encounter with the green-eyed Charlie in Paris. A one-off, spur of the moment heated thing that burns in both of their memories. Johannes Alm then travels to take up his position in Montreal, playing for the NHL. Charlie Morin just so happens to live there too, as a reporter. Circumstances occur that bring them once again face-to-face, unfortunately bigotry and slander also showed their dirty hands. Charlie’s been charred by his past, but his make-up’d, green eyes haunt Johannes, and he’s determined to pursue Charlie, no matter what.
While the actual world building is minimal, the secondary characters were exceedingly well-rounded. I fell for Marc and Luc, Andrew and Sergei, just as much as Charlie and Johannes. I enjoyed the nuisances of various discussions of love, trust, sexual play and BDSM. While I wouldn’t have minded a bit more “play”, that wasn’t the point of the story. This is about reaching forward and overcoming obstacles (physical and mental) in order to gain the higher ground of true love and trust.
My only tweak - I felt the men sounded the same, and I wanted them to sound different. The cultural differences from Canada and Sweden never came through. We got the Russian speech from Sergei, but there wasn’t a single twist of language of French-Canadian or some fun Swedish words. Give me some dialect slang and make me a happy girl.
