They don’t play for the same team. Or do they?
Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.
Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever.
Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot summer at camp, Jamie has a few things to discover about his old friend...and a big one to learn about himself.
Warning: contains sexual situations, skinnydipping, shenanigans in an SUV and proof that coming out to your family on social media is a dicey proposition.

Need 200 books about these two!

Thoughts on Him

Going into Him, I only knew a few things about it. 1) It’s an M/M romance. 2) They are both hockey players. 3) They used to be best friends.

I haven’t read a lot of M/M, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. This book blew me out of the water. It was sexy, it was sad, it was funny, but it was so, so happy. I couldn’t stop reading this book. Jamie and Ryan are two beautiful characters and are so perfect together.

I am a huge sports fan, I love hockey and this book gets everything spot on when it comes to the sport. I was so worried that the authors didn’t take the time to learn about the sport before writing this book, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the authors were giant hockey fans. I think that aspect of the book was a huge bonus.

And the sex, oh wowza. That’s all I’m gonna say.

Him is a great story of one guy trying to figure out who he is in this world, with his best friend by his side. It’s a great story and I want to share it with everyone. Oh, and did I mention that the sequel, Us, came out yesterday?

    This book is so amazing! It was everything that I expected and more from these authors. I really like both Sarina and Elle’s NA hockey series and highly recommend them. I can’t wait to read Us and see more of Ryan and Jamie.
