This is the last book of the CU combined series of Saxon James and Eden Finley. the events of this book are happening at the same time as the events of Line Mates and Study Dates, here we get to see Ashers older brother Wesleys life and what hes going through. As with Asher, Wesley doesn't know how to balance his work and home life, he just feels overwhelmed all the time. Jasper does not like the jocks of CU, he doesn't give extra credit, he does not interfere with his students lives, he just grades based on the facts, until he actually sees some times looks are deceiving. With some interference from jaspers best friend, Wesley agrees to goto Jaspers high school reunion to prove he no longer is the kid they bullied, things don't go as planned, they work out better! Enjoy watching these men growing together and helping each other balance out each others lives.
Ugh I’m so sad that the CU Hockey series is over, but this was such a great ending to it all!
Westly Dalton was an NHL player who played hard on and off the ice and had a bit of a reputation. When he became the guardian for his five younger siblings, he gave it all up to move back home to care for them and took a coaching job with the CU hockey team. Since quitting hockey, his whole life is about his siblings - making sure they have what they need, caring for them and giving every free minute he has to them. But that also leaves him burnt out and at the end of his rope too frequently, wishing for a reprieve from the stress.
Jasper Eckstein is a math professor at CU who has a reputation for hating jocks and not giving extra credit. After being bullied in high school, he’s changed so much about himself to make sure he’s never in that position again but also wants to go back to his reunion to show everyone that he flourished anyways. He has a huge heart but has to keep it hidden at work, only showing it with his friends and people he’s close to.
After West storms into Jasper’s office to get extra credit for his brother to keep him on the team, he agrees to go with Jasper to his reunion since he owes him one. Things heat up between them while they’re away from everything and Jasper has the ability to take West’s mind off of all his stress. When they go back to their regular lives, they have to sneak in quick dates and hookups when West is free but both of them crave more. I really liked how easily Jasper fit in with West’s family and how they accepted him, even Asher after a while. Jasper and West are definitely opposites in a lot of ways, but they fit so well together and understand what each other needs more than anyone else ever has.
I’m really going to miss this CU Hockey crew - these books were full of fun, laughter, steam and sweet love stories. I loved the epilogue, how it wrapped things up for all of the characters and brought them together one last time. So great!
Completed Puck Drills and Cheap Thrills....( last book of the series... 😭😭) and yes I love this book tooo...❤❤❤ Man, I loved the connection between West and Jasper and they seem to balance each other out and even though their relationship starts of rocky due to Jasper’s hate of Jocks and West being angry at Jasper for not giving Asher a chance at extra credit so he ends up on West’s sh*t list. West feels so much guilt where his siblings are concerned and he’s drowning on the inside so Jasper offers him a way to escape out of his head and forget his worries for awhile as well as helping him find a way to connect with his siblings like asking them about their feelings on certain things instead of just assuming what they’re feeling. The banter between West and Jasper was pretty funny and made me happy. I found it funny that Jasper had moved in with West and his siblings and they both never realised it. And the epilogue is so good ( and kind of emotional..as it feels like I am seeing all the characters for the last time....😭😭😭) They got Married...why I'm not invited where's that bonus scene I want to read that... ( And the shock on my face when I read ZAC GRANT... LIKE WHAT... 👀👀👀 i screamed so loud my mom was like what is he doing... 🤣🤣🤣) I want that epilogue too.... I’m looking forward to seeing more books co-written by Eden and Saxon in the future. I’d definitely recommend this book, series and both authors to everyone.
Is it too pathetic to be this upset over this series ending? Because I’m pretty freaking sad. Every book was a banger. The communication, the relationships, the growth and development of the characters, and the love.. oh, the LOVE. I cannot tell you how happy I was that the last book was about West. I wanted his story just as badly as I wanted Asher’s. It was perfection in printed form, too! I don’t do spoilers of any sort in my reviews, but let’s just say that if you miss out on the CU world, it’s definitely your loss. Thank you for yet another amazing series that has taken a piece of my heart and is keeping it hostage forever.
This is a sports romance that takes place at a college, it’s the fifth book in a series that has to be read in order. In book 4 we meet Asher’s older brother Westly who is literally falling apart just as much as Asher was as they both put their Professional Hockey to the side to take care of their younger 4 siblings after their parents both die in an accident. I’m so glad the authors closed off this series with Westly and Jasper who end up perfectly matched in the end! If you haven’t already, read all of this series before hitting the Puckboys series next!
I loved this series! West and Jasper are so different and what begins with animosity, evolves into lust then love. Jasper is a cool head for West as he navigates his new normal and feels inadequate raising his siblings. I fell in love with the kids too, they’re all amazing little people. I read the NHL series first so seeing Ezra and West mend their relationship was satisfying. Jasper comes around and realizes that not all hockey players are meatheads and he found one that sees more than math geek what’s on the outside.
West is such an awesome parental figure. He tries so hard, but raising 5 siblings is not easy. When his brother, Asher, has trouble with one of his professors, West goes to talk with him. Jasper is a professor who has a bad history with hockey players and doesn’t take kindly to West’s brash attitude. These two don’t seem at first like they would fit, but they find an amazing amount of safety and comfort in each other. I loved reading their story and revisiting with all of the other couples in this series.
I enjoyed this series and this book finally has an epilogue that continues, or serves as the epilogues for the last several. Book 1 was the only one with a decent epilogue before this one.
The romance here wasn't that great. The chemistry wasn't as hot as any of the others. I'm not a fan of single parent books and this book is a good example of things I don't like about the trope. I hate the strain on the plot for the couple to find time alone. I do like the family. I never fell in love with Jasper. Or his friends. The only two books where I felt interested in both characters were the ones for Asher/Kole and Jacobs/Beck. Even the authors didn't seem that enthusiastic about Jasper. We see very little about his life outside his relationship with West. And what we do see is just to set up the date to the reunion and him talking about West to his friends.
Even with Asher and Kole, Asher was more interesting, but it was at least close. I don't think I've ever read a series where I've enjoyed one side more than the other as much as I have this series, and that's a bad indicator for the series as a whole.
I had read the Frat Wars series by Saxon before this. I've since read the first two books in the Fake Boyfriends series by Eden. I really think they're better apart than together. I like Frat Wars best because of the humor, but Eden does the deep relationship romance thing better. There's more depth to her stories.
I would still recommend this series but I wouldn't put it at the top of your TBR list. Save it for sometime when you can't find much else that interests you. I do suggest the other two series I mentioned.
Westley and Jasper. Timing does overlap some with Asher’s story. Age gap: Westley is 28 and Jasper is 38. Jasper hates jocks (for a decent reason though and he grows a lot). A little bit of fake dating. I loved their story too and getting to see West calm down a bit and share some of his burdens was nice.
