The hockey part of the story is very well done, authentic without being boring and the romance was refreshing. Kat is no vapid love interest to a hunky guy and Ryan is no alpha male making his claim, rather they are sweet and genuine and very lovable.
Yes! This is what I hoped for when one of my favourite m/m writers started writing m/f romance. We still have a wonderfully intense leading man, but this time he is perfectly matched with a fiercely independent woman.
You don’t get more Alpha male than an NHL enforcer. I love the contrast between Ryan’s rage on the ice and his introverted caution on his own time. Loyal and selfless to his friends, Ryan is a professional athlete who enjoys quiet charity work and low key friendships. I absolutely loved the complexity of his character.
The sister of Ryan’s best friend, Kat has been overprotected by both her brother and Ryan since losing her parents as a teenager. As a paramedic she is strong and resilient. She has a lifelong crush on Ryan but has never found the courage she needs to confess her feelings.
The relationship between Loki and Ryan is almost as sweet as the central romance and the hockey backdrop allows RJ Scott to shine when writing the intense, complex relationships between teammates. I might have enjoyed just a little more hockey in the story, but I loved the camaraderie between the players both on and off the ice.
This is a sweet, slow romance with electric tension as things heat up between Kat and Ryan. Sexy and intense without being angsty, I loved the friends to lovers storyline. I usually read m/m because I struggle with the unequal relationships and insipid female characters in m/f fiction. Here, Ryan and Kat forge a wonderful partnership and Kat is a strong, independent leading lady. I really loved this story! (less)
I am a big sports romance fan, and this is a great start to a new series. There is something about a hockey team and the fact that it can be changed so quickly, due to trades etc., that makes it really important that the characters work straight away - and Ms Scott has definitely given us a team of players worthy of our attention. Whilst the story concentrates mainly on two, there are plenty more waiting in the wings for future installments.
This is a story which works well, because tying the successes of the game to the emotional feelings of Ryan, gives us a quick barometer as to how things are progressing. Watching him avoid situations which will cause him to want to breach the code, remind us of what an honourable man he is, even if we wish otherwise. By getting Kat's viewpoint, we see that she is just as hungry, but certain that she is not enough for Ryan - rather than understanding that she is possibly too much. As the story develops, and we are drawn into the maelstrom of feelings that need an outlet, it is very satisfying when they finally open up to each other.
A really good story, with some lovely funny moments along with the tension, and I am looking forward to the next book with great interest.
