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. While trying to financially help Ethan, Riley must hide his family’s wealth so as not to hurt Ethan’s immense pride. 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.
I’ve made no bones that Riley Hunter is one of my favorite characters in the Scoring Chances series, and that he and Ethan Kennedy are one of my favorite couples, so I had high expectations of Scott R. Smith’s narration and I feel like every expectation was met.
Smith performs really well, with great character voices, good pacing, timing and delivery.
I expected him to really bring to life the humor, romance, and passion, and I feel like he delivered on all counts. I’ll definitely be slipping this audio into my auto re-listen rotation!
If you’re looking for a great romance with a fantastic friendship, low angst and hot sex, and great narration you should definitely pick this up!
