When Aiden is traded to a new team and an accident results after a move he made to another player, he seeks a night away from his worries and try to fit in with the other players. Therefore he accepts an invite to the team get together at the local bar. Christophe, the captain, tries to ease Aidan out of his shell. As an openly gay man, he sees no problem in making a move on Aidan when he feels the attraction between them. Imagine his surprise to find that Aidan is not gay and his past relationships have always been with women. What Aidan cannot deny is that he too feels the compelling attraction to his captain and starts to question his past.
What I really liked about this was that Aidan did not put himself in a box or label himself. He came to the conclusion that he would be open to the possibility to a relationship with a man. I wouldn’t therefore say it was a gay for you type of read.
I loved the interaction between the two men and the chemistry was scorching hot. There was a little angst but it wasn’t overdone. I don’t know much about hockey but it made me want to go watch a game and check out the players!
Overall an enjoyable relatively quick read and I shall look out for other books by this author. Four stars.
Being traded to a new team and recovering from an injury, Aidan has a lot to learn. Both on the ice and off. When his feelings for his team captain were strong and not just being a teammate. He was attracted to him. But how could that be when all he dated was women. That all changed when Christophe showed Aidan what he wanted. And that was quite a revelation. With opening up his heart, Aidan finally felt complete and whole with Christophe.
I enjoyed Out of the Penalty Box. With first time reading Genevieve Chamblee. I was pleasantly surprised and a great read.
Received ARC for an honest review which I voluntarily received.
It has been nine years for Aidan and he is questioning it. He is feeling like he doesn’t know if he deserves it anymore as a young kid gets injured. He is having to prove himself all over again, because of a trade in a new conference no less.
I liked Christophe. He was a good guy and a had a knack for being what Aidan needed. He a good disposition and he was funny, but most of all he knew who he was and what he wanted from life and isn't afraid to live it. He is blunt and states it like it is and has no qualms. I actually was a bigger fan of Christophe.
Aidan is in denial. He doesn’t know what all of a sudden he is attracted to Christophe. Now form that point is when I thought it got better and more interesting while coming to terms with everything. He is just afraid of what others will think. You can feel the heat and attraction of both Aidan and Christophe. Then coming to term with media and the fact that the nineteen-year-old is still in a coma and what is being said about it.
As I said I liked the book and look forward to more. Oh and let's not forget the French in this book. Oh, I loved it I just wish I knew what they were saying as I was reading.
Christophe-fell in love with him from the beginning. He was so vivacious and sweet. He was irresistible and aiden needed him in his world. He supported Aiden and helped him see that he did not do anything wrong. He helps protect him and shows him love, kindness and patience.
So where does the confusion for Aiden come in? It begins with the check in the game and him thinking that others see him poorly. Continues with rejection that was odd to see and culminates with his attraction to Christophe.
An attraction he can’t fight but doesn’t understand. He always felt he was attracted to woman and couldn’t wrap his head around how he felt for Christophe. Christophe who was understanding and sweet. He was the perfect boyfriend to have. Only Aiden was scared of his feelings. As he is trying to figure everything out, he does mess up. It is his trying to fix things that is more entertaining well that and the bar scene.
These two were great together. Aiden was introverted and Christophe was extroverted. Aiden was one who needed someone to give him perspective and Christophe needed someone just to support and love him. they did this for each other.
The story was sweet and fast paced. It was adorable and entertaining. the characters were likeable and grabbed you from the beginning. The attraction was palpable and you could feel the love and support vibrate throughout the book and Aiden and Christophe to one another.
