A Scoring Chances Novel
After last season’s heartbreaking loss to his hockey team’s archrival, Jacksonville Sea Storm goalie Riley Hunter is ready to let go of the past and focus on a winning season. His new roommate, Ethan Kennedy, is a loud New Yorker with a passion for social justice that matches his role as the team’s enforcer. The quieter Riley is attracted to Ethan and has no idea what to do about it.
Ethan has no hesitations. As fearless as his position demands, he rushes into things without much thought for the consequences. Though they eventually warm to their passionate new bond, it doesn’t come without complications. For their relationship to work, Ethan will need to learn when to keep the gloves on and let someone help him—and Riley will have to learn it’s okay to let someone past his defenses.
Yes!!!! Another winner by Avon Gale. She is rocking this series, and this was angst free. Her writing was spot on, and such a cohesive story line. I know next to nothing about Hockey, even live in a Hockey city, but I wasn’t as confused as I was in book one. I adored this one a lot. Hockey isn’t my thing, but guys are! Riley was everything. I really liked him as a character, and Ethan Kennedy wasn’t to bad himself. Why did it have to end? I wanted to totally see Ethan in his next stage of life.
I liked that the romance was front runner in this for the guys. I enjoyed Ethan’s determination to accept his bisexuality. He had these notions in his mind, and instead of ignoring them he got down to the bottom of it. Ethan’s strong will determination was definitely appreciated by me. I’m sure when others read this book, they will definitely fall in love with his characters. I enjoyed his family, and that conversation between him and his mom was so lovely. She’s such a strong and loving woman. It’s no wonder how Ethan turned out.
Goodness, Riley. Ugh, I just want him. He was amazing, and a tad kinky. Loved that side of him. I liked his personality. He was so calmed, his thinking is what makes Riley attractive. His passion was in everything he did. His meeting of the Kennedy’s as reserved as he was, I think he yearned for a family like. But I’m kinda glad he didn’t get it, because he wouldn’t be the person he is now. Loved seeing Lane & Jared, and some new faces.
Yowza!!! Two steamy gorgeous, strong, brilliantly hot guys. Lord these guys can definitely heat up a page. I mean from zero guy interest until eff it we are going big or go home. Man, seriously the mouth on these two left me feeling tingly in all the right places. I can’t wait for more of this series. I would like to see more of these two though, even a one-off would be good enough for me. 2nd favorite book of the year! I’m on a winning streak!
