I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.
Benoit is the final book in the Owatonna U Hockey series and it is my favourite of the three books. The last few weeks I’ve been struggling with reading more than half an hour at a time but when I picked up Benoit and started reading, I read for several hours straight and got half way through the book before I even realised it.
Benoit and Ethan are a wonderful couple. I’m not always a fan of big age gaps in my romance novels but the 10 years between Ethan and Benoit didn’t seem to matter. Actually, having Ethan at the end of his hockey career and Benoit looking to start I actually think helped their relationship because they were really in sync. I loved the way Ethan supported Benoit as he struggled with managing his busy final year at college, hockey, friends, family and romance and the appearance of a stalker.
I loved that this story includes characters from the previous books as well as the Railers hockey team. I was thrilled to get to see more of the men of previous book I’ve already fallen in love with. Other things I loved about this story include Benoit’s routine with the ice which was so cute and the way the authors describe the hockey games which was really exciting.
I didn’t want to book to finish because I just wanted to stay with the characters from this series. I was over the moon to see that there will be a spin off series – Raptors - which has the first book due out in September. I can’t wait.
