This is actually the third installment in the Stick Side series. And no, I haven’t read the two previous ones. Shots on Goal works as a stand-alone. Though I must admit, in the beginning it was a bit of a challenge to keep some of the names and characters straight – even though they weren’t (Sorry, couldn’t help myself there).
This is a true slow-burn romance. So, if you’re looking for fast and furious, look elsewhere. The tentative development of Roman’s and Cody’s relationship is slow going. They become friends, long before they become anything more. But the portrayal of Roman’s struggle to trust again, Cody’s insecurities and their gradual, growing affection is totally engaging.
After a very heartbreaking prologue, I had a bit of trouble getting into the story though. The slow pace took some getting used to. But I’m so glad I stuck it out. Because I really liked this read. I hadn’t meant to pick up such a romance-y romance, but I’m so glad I did. It’s beautiful and so well written. And there’s a hopeful undertone throughout the story implying that no, humanity might not be a totally f****d up race after all. Also, my very heterosexual, ignorant self got a bit educated which is also a bonus. I hadn’t heard the term demisexual before and I most certainly didn’t know what it meant. I do now though.
Shots on Goal is the third book in Amy Aislin's Stick Side series.
This one telling the sweet story of Cody and Roman.
These two characters made their separate appearences in the first two books. Cody as Mitch's best friend and Roman as Alex and Ash's rude teammate.
Roman gets traded to a new NHL team in Vermont where he is roped into volunteering at the Glen Hill Library to read tales to kids.
The library where Cody happens to be a part time worker.
They meet and Cody sees something in Roman that he let noone see before. That he is lost and his grumpy exterior is just a defense against getting hurt.
It was a lovely, easy stroy about two guys with thier separate issues findig something extraordinary with the other. Roman trying to fit in with his new team and Cody trying his best to save his local library.
Nothing extra really happens, pretty low in angst but it was refreshing and made me smile which is a really good thing in a book.
Cody has daddy issues as his father is career military and he rarely saw him growing up. Because of that he has a fear of getting left behind by the ones he loves. This causes a littly dilemma for him when he applies to grad school in a different state.
Roman had a pretty rough experience in high school when he was outed and needed to survive the consequences. He mistrusts everyone and fears to open up. That costs him 8 years and almost an opportunity whith the kind, lively student.
I was kind of heartbroken because his story is just so tragic.
But they, of course, manage to make the other realise that something or rather someone is worth putting yourself out there.
Solid four stars becuase it was a lovely story.
I was intrigued by the brief discussion about romantic attraction and sexual attraction.
I did think that the author had Cody expecting the impossible from his father, given his father was career military, which therefore didn’t seem realistic for a military child, even if he didn’t move around.
Another great entry in the series! I was given an ARC but bought my own copy anyway.
