Can your favorite hockey players finish their first season together undefeated?

Five months in, NHL forward Ryan Wesley is having a record-breaking rookie season. He’s living his dream of playing pro hockey and coming home every night to the man he loves–Jamie Canning, his longtime best friend turned boyfriend. There’s just one problem: the most important relationship of his life is one he needs to keep hidden, or else face a media storm that will eclipse his success on the ice.

Jamie loves Wes. He really, truly does. But hiding sucks. It’s not the life Jamie envisioned for himself, and the strain of keeping their secret is taking its toll. It doesn’t help that his new job isn’t going as smoothly as he’d hoped, but he knows he can power through it as long as he has Wes. At least apartment 10B is their retreat, where they can always be themselves.

Or can they? When Wes’s nosiest teammate moves in upstairs, the threads of their carefully woven lie begin to unravel. With the outside world determined to take its best shot at them, can Wes and Jamie develop major-league relationship skills on the fly?

Warning: contains sexual situations, a vibrating chair, long-distance sexytimes, and proof that hockey players look hot in any shade of green.

Hot! Hot! Hot!!! Wes and Jamie are HOT!!!!

In this second installment, this hot couple are navigating the everyday challenges of domestic life. Wes’s career as a professional Hockey player is starting strong, but this means his personal life has to be kept hidden, at least until his first season is over. Jamie is getting home sick and his job as a coach is not going as well as he had hoped, and to add to all that, Wes is gone a lot and their time together as a couple is very limited.

Miscommunication is the main problem these two are having, and before they know it the little problems become big and not easy to manage.

While Wes and Jamie struggle with their relationship, as a reader and fan of the story, you feel like shaking them silly boys for not talking. They love each other so much, so you pray and hope that they’ll be able to talk it out and move on.

I love the combination of writing styles of these two authors. They are a power couple when it comes to creating sexy and entertaining stories. Even though I loved the first book more I enjoyed this one and would definitely recommend it to my friends and followers.
