Two rivals meet whilst being scouted for the draft for NHL and commence a hate/love relationship that continues for years.
The two leads, Ilya and Shane are so different but are both wonderful in their own way. The whole story is a believable tale of men trying to conceal their sexuality in a macho profession and being terrified of being found out - especially as the world believes they are enemies.
I liked following their story from the time they met instead of a brief backward glance to set up the current timeline.
Very enjoyable. Thanks Rachel.
Shane and Ilya at two of the biggest young stars in ice hockey and from the moment they are drafted, the media play up a rivalry between them. In the media and the public’s eyes they are enemies but in private they are fiercely attracted to each other.
I love that while there is instant sexual attraction between the men there is no insta-love. There isn’t even really insta-like. The story takes us over the span of seven years and we get to see the men change and deal with different issues in their lives as they very slowly grow closer together, all the while trying to deny that there is anything more between them other than incredibly hot sex.
I loved watching Ilya and Shane fall in love. I fell in love with them. Every time they were apart I was hanging for their next encounter to see what would happen. Would one of them be brave enough to take their intimacy from physical to emotional and if so, who would make the first move? Would they even make it to a happily ever after?
M/M Ice Hockey romances do it for me and Heated Rivalry is now one of my favourites in the genre. This is an amazing love story without being overly emotional. It is a fantastic read.

So what was so good? It tells the story of Shane & Ilya whose relationship starts off purely as hidden lust, but which moves into so much more over a period of 10 years or so. They're great characters: Shane who is far more open and honest than Ilya, the all-American/Canadian kid, but Ilya, with his wicked sense of humour and also great honesty and kindness who hides so much. They're a fantastic & unexpected combination.
This had all the good stuff: humour and angst combined in a well-written tale. If you like hockey & this kind of book, this is a top read and I so want more from the pair of them!
I sincerely could write a review, but I am just going to copy paste some of the tabs people have this book under: filthy-dirty, m-m, hot-as-fuck-sex-and-chemistry, hot-guys, hot-sex, gorgeous-boys, , hate-sex, nhl, enemies-to-lovers
Need I say more?
OK. I actually also, found this book sweet and funny. And even tho it does touch on homophobia, it's on a world stage for people that are very famous, not *so much* in the personal, so I don't feel this book has any trigger warnings.
