Yes, Vic is a jerk. A big one. But it's SO OBVIOUS that he's a jerk for some reason. The reader just has to wait until all is revealed. I did like that even after we know why Vic is a jerk, and after he starts to be a better human, he's STILL a jerk - just a nicer one. It rings very true to his character and it's nice to see something other than a complete 180 that other authors would write ("bad boy renounces all and becomes sweetest guy ever" is easy to read, but not realistic. Vic was VERY realistic). I mean, you're going to hate him sometimes. He's terrible. But you can also feel some sympathy for him because it's so clear that he's lived his whole life pushing people away to protect himself. I liked his humor, even though it was another defense mechanism. He's very blunt, even about himself as he starts letting the reader see beneath his prickly exterior.
All three stories are told from Vic's POV. I did miss seeing things from Dan's perspective. I can understand why Dan sticks around. He sees through Vic's tough guy exterior. But I wasn't very clear on why Dan initially was attracted to Vic. God knows Vic was pretty horrible when they first met. And later on. And even later than that. What did Dan see in Vic (other than a guy trying to bury his pain)? What made Dan try to reach out to Vic through so much anger/negativity. I would have liked to hear what was going on in Dan's head.
Once Vic let himself be loved, I really liked how much he loved Dan and told him frequently.
The MCs are men. Men men. Dudes. Loud. Vulgar. Aggressive. Crude. Insensitive. Smelly. Rude. Angry. And the sexytimes are pretty much the same as the men. The sexytimes are super hot and very frequent, which was more than fine with me. If you like your gay MCs (or sexytimes) on the softer side, these are not the books for you.
Most of the female characters are treated like idiotic annoyances or worse. But I felt like both Vic and Dan were learning to be better toward women by end of the third book. (I feel like I'm giving them a pass after some pretty reprehensible behavior (especially from Vic) and I shouldn't. There's another review that goes into detail about the portrayal of women. It's very well written and all true. I probably should have been more irritated about the portrayal of women. I've called other authors out on it before. I guess I was just so caught up in Dan and Vic that it didn't bother me as much as it should have).
Vic is definitely one of the strongest characters I've read in a long time. He just leaps off the page. You're either going to give him the benefit of the doubt while he gets his act together or you're not. But it's worth it if you can stick with him through his bad behavior.
I liked the story. It has to be read in order as each new book picks up where the previous one ended. The sex is hot and plentiful but there is more than sex in the series. A good hard look is given to puck bunnies and the affect they can have on players' lives. Jealousy rears it's head in the last two books as Dan has to deal with it in regards to Victor and a puck bunny. Victor has to look as his childhood, his recent past that caused him to be sent down to the minors, and where he is headed in the future. I liked that the team gave Victor a chance to straighten himself out.
I liked how the team came together. I especially like Mario McGarrity and his kilt. He is the sidekick that is needed at times when the main characters are emotionally overloaded. I plan on getting more of this teams' books.
I’ve only read V.L. Locey as part of a duo with R.J. Scott so it was fabulous to find her writing chops were so great. First person POV is not always done well but it was perfect for Victor. Dan and the rest of the team were fully developed and balanced. I know next to nothing about hockey that’s isn’t in fiction anyway, but I had a blast reading about it here. I would recommend this in the strongest of terms; a fantastic hurt/comfort, bad-boy redemption, hockey player delight.
