I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.
Jacob and Ryker come from very different backgrounds. We have a chance to get to know each of them before they meet and I liked both men. Jacob comes from a farming background that struggles with money and has had to work for everything in life and Ryker comes from a hockey family with money and seems to have it all.
Jacob does not react well to Ryker’s wealth and comparative easy life when they first meet at a training camp and end up roommates. I didn’t like Jacob’s jealous judgment of Ryker but because we’d already been introduced to Jacob I understood where he was coming from, even though I didn’t agree with his position. I enjoyed the way Ryker was so interested in Jacob and persistent in getting to know him.
Both men face making decisions about their lives that will affect their futures and I think the authors did an excellent job of portraying two college guys trying to juggle school, romance, hockey and work responsibilities.
The ups and downs of this romance had my emotions going in all different directions. I wanted these guys to get it together. As is often the case the harder our heroes struggle to reach the happy ending the sweeter it is and that is definitely true in this case. When the story came to an end I felt like it was just the beginning and there would be more to their story. I love Ryker and I very much hope that the authors write further stories about Ryker and Jacob so we can see where their lives go from here.
