💬 My first thought is : light and easy . This book was definitely that .
First of all , the dynamic between Ezra and Anton is very well written, their relationship gradually increases. It doesn’t fall on us out of nowhere. A well-handled enemies-to-lovers.
I laughed, a lot.. the sarky comments and inner monologues made my day. Their are irresistible together. two men afraid of relationships who will find love... always effective.
The steam is good , not scorching though. It’s detailed but the scenes are described and would have been hotter with more expression of how they felt and verbal exchanges between our two lovers
The plot is down to our two lovebirds and the discovery of their feelings for each other, with Anton who hesitated to come out and Ezra who didn’t want a relationship. No drama unnecessary (maybe not enough angst) Simple but nice
This book is a sweet MM romance with endearing characters.
I was so excited for this book, I really love Eden Finley and Saxon James duo and I was clearly not disappointed. This story was just incredible, there is everything that you would want to find - laugh, jokes, love, and Hockey !!! 🤩
We already had the first glance of Ezra the one and only “Entitled, eccentric and egotistical” in the last book of the Cu Hockey series (Puck Drills & Quick Trills), his apparition lead to ask for so much more, at this moment we know that he had a one-night stand which completely disturbs him.
This story truly shows us how he’s way more than he wants others to see. Behind his superstitious manners, his egotistical mannerism, we found a little boy craving affection, but he also has a kind heart and doesn’t hesitate to support all queers who come to him for reassurance, advice, and backing. Meanwhile, Anton looks more reserved but fights daily with his own insecurities, and shows strong possessiveness which gave us more spicy 🔥. At many levels, they complement each over, and it’s impossible to not want their happiness.
Seeing Grant from the CU Hockey series (Power Plays) & Ollie and even Soren😍 from the Fake Boyfriend series (Deke & Hat Trick) was so amazing. I love the fact that they create a group “The Collective” which gave a glance for what is next to come, like always, can’t wait for it !! And of course, we can discover new characters such as Tripp, Oskar and maybe little Ayri.
Time for Ezra best moment “ I don’t think this has ever happened before … but I’m completely speechless”
What an amazing start to the series! I fell in love with Ezra almost from the first page, but Anton wasn't far behind. I loved the dual POV, giving us so much insight into both our MCs. My heart broke for Ezra quite a few times, seeing what was beneath the facade he showed the rest of the world. That layer of armour he had built up to protect himself. Anton was the first one to really take the time to dig deeper and truly see Ezra for who he was. They both brought out the best in the other. The storyline flowed well, and I enjoyed the banter between our MCs, and also with the other players. And let's not forget the scorching chemistry between Ezra and Anton! Talk about hot! Definitely a book I'd recommend, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
I was fascinated by Ezra since meeting him briefly in the CU Hockey series, so I was really happy he was getting a book. And what a book! This was funny and steamy in all the best ways. Anton and Ezra's relationship went from enemies to enemies with benefits to friends with benefits to lovers, and I loved every single second about it. Anton is not really closeted but he doesn't want the world to only see him as the gay hockey player: his teammates, friends and family know, so it should be enough. Ezra on the other hand is out and proud and doesn't care about being photographed in very naughty occasions with hookups. But they're not enemies because of that, Ezra doesn't even know Anton was gay until he told him; they are enemies on the ice until the find themselves in the same team, and being enemies isn't going to be good to get results, to win the cup. I love the kind of books that start strong with the sexual attraction of the characters and they say "no complications, we're casual", but then little by little they find themselves being jealous, thinking only about the other person, being exclusive, and then GASP, realization hits and, huh, maybe they were already dating without them knowing. But we know straight away there's no way there aren't feelings involved. Not after opening up and being sweet and caring. Not after knowing the other man helped them being their best selves without them realizing. I love it and I loved this! I loved seeing Ezra and Anton pretend they weren't boyfriend material, only for them being totally boyfriend-y at every turn. Their banter was hilarious and their chemistry amazing. I loved Anton and his big heart, and I loved Ezra and his superstitions. The black cat scene!! These men own my heart! I know we're not getting them as MCs in the next book, but I hope we can get a short story or a lot of cameos, because I can't get enough of them.
As usual, Saxon and Eden's writing style gets to you from the first page. Funny, relatable, and steamy. The perfect mix for the perfect story. No, I still don't know anything about hockey, but I cheered for them all the same!
The writing and plot is good. Better then a lot of other books out there. These two characters are so unique and unlikely together but yet work perfectly. It’s hilarious watching the two stubborn and prideful men find love from their original hate…all that said I found the book to be pretty typical. It wasn’t a standout for me. Good writing. Sports theme. Gay romance. And that’s it. I’m surprised by the amount of support for this book because it really wasn’t bad, but I feel like I’ve read the same idea before. Still worth a read of course if you like the sports & mm romance…definitely fun!
I’m conflicted about this book. It was written well and I liked the characters but it didn’t really pull me in. And because I wasn’t fully invested in the story, I felt like the book was too long and drawn out. I really liked the Fake Dating series and this book takes place in the same universe - but focuses on the players in the NHL. It was nice to revisit some of the past characters but this story on its own didn’t stand out. A perfectly fine read.
