Would definitely recommend to a friend.
Tennant Rowe at 23 is the youngest of three hockey brothers, his older siblings each more famous than the other and Ten is feeling unsettled in their shadow. He feels the need to make a name for himself, prove that he's more than his name. So he chooses a trade to a smaller, up-and-coming team - the Harrisburg Railers.
Jared 'Mads' Madsen is 32 and a coach for the Railers. His own player career was cut short but he seems to thrive as a coach. But with an ex-wife, a teenage son and a meddling father-in-law, he has more than enough on his plate to deal with a stupid crush from his friend's little brother. Cause that's all it is, right? A crush, a form of hero worship - no way would Ten want anything else and not like Mads is looking for love or anything...right?
But despite the odds, the two start a relationship. Ten is young and very eager to expand his experiences but Mads insists on taking it slow - if they are gonna do this then they will do it right.
Tennant and Mads are so very well matched, despite the outward obstacles (coach/player, 9 years age difference, the whole best-friends-little-brother thing). The relationship was so wonderfully different from the usual fare - they took things slowly and spent actual time getting to know one another outside the bedroom too. Also Mads' son Ryker, who at seventeen is close to Ten's age, such a delightful addition to the story. I loved how easily acceptance of Tennant's relationship with his dad came to Ryker - as really did everyone else's.
The hockey part of the story was well done, but I would not have expected anything else from these two authors anyway, they are both mistresses of this particular genre on their own too. This collaboration just highlighted the best of both of their writing, cannot praise it enough.
This is just the first instalment in the series, am very much looking forward to the future books!
Age gap stories are not something I look for, but if a favorite author writes one I will certainly read it. Actually, Tennant (Ten) and Jared (Mads) are only 9 years apart; to me this isn't really much of an age gap given that both MCs are over 21. One of the tropes I do love though, is falling for a sibling's best friend; so, even if I didn't already love RJ Scott's work, this is a story I would totally go for. Jared is the best friend of Tennant's oldest brother.
Tennant is the youngest of three brothers – all of them professional hockey players. He loves his brothers but he also has felt a bit stifled because of always being compared to them. He accepts a trade to an expansion team and his oldest brother thinks it's a mistake.
Jared's a coach on Tennant's new team and he hasn't seen Ten in years. The two of them quickly realize their attraction for each other but Ten isn't out and their relationship could jeopardize his career.
This story is told from alternating points of view by Jared and Tennant; it was full of feels for me. Jared has a 17-year-old son and seeing him do all he can to protect him touched my heart. Ten has to deal with coming out to his team and his family and how all of that went down moved me to tears. I won't tell you if they were happy or sad tears, you'll have to read the story to find out for yourself.
Changing Lines is also full of hockey jargon and it was kind of a weird thing for me…. I'm not a fan of any sports but hockey would definitely be a one that I know next to nothing about. But, none of that meant a thing to me when I read this story. To me the jargon was secondary to the story and the fact that I didn't totally understand all of it didn't make a bit of difference. I'm sure I'll learn and understand a lot more about hockey before this series ends.
I loved the epilogue for Jared and Ten's story and the teaser for book 2 that followed. I just know that Railers Hockey is going to be a great series.
An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.
***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions***
This is the first book in the Harrisburg Railers series and honestly, I can't wait for more. Ten and Mads are lush, they had me swooning and I really enjoyed watching them fall in love <3 There's some fantastic supporting characters and some I'm desperate for RJ and VL to write a story for (Ryker & Stan). There's just enough hockey in there for the hockey enthusiasts but not too much to confuse those who know nothing *raises hand* (I might love reading about the players but know little to nothing about the actual game).
All in all a fabulous read and the great start to a new series :)
