Hockey player Jason Monroe lives a double life—star defenseman and soon-to-be Olympian on the ice and closeted gay man outside the rink. A serious relationship is out of the question, and Jason makes do with anonymous sex in barroom bathrooms, not willing to take the chance on coming out as gay in a decidedly macho sport.
Advisor to the US Olympic hockey team Patrick Parker knows a thing or two about being a professional hockey player who’s not out. He’s fifteen years older than Jason, and when he senses the sexy younger man is interested, he knows he shouldn’t give in to the attraction.
The two men can’t keep their hands off each other, though, and with each heated encounter it gets harder to hide their relationship. When their world blows up around them, forcing them into the limelight, though, will their love survive or be put on ice?
Jason P. Hilton does a steamy job narrating this bit of smexy goodness.
This was lots of super sexy fun without a lot of character development to muck up the way. This should definitely satisfy readers (or listeners) who like a healthy dose of smexy times in their romance novels.
Bottom line: I had a great time listening to the story, and was very satisfied with the heat produced off the ice, but the abrupt ending without a satisfying conclusion of what happens next left me cold.
What happened with Jason’s family? What happened with the hockey officials?
If a second edition of this is done I think it would benefit greatly from, at the very least, an epilogue to tie off the dangling plot threads.
