Description

Nothing interferes with Shane Hollander's game - definitely not the sexy rival he loves to hate.

Pro hockey star Shane Hollander isn't just crazy talented, he's got a spotless reputation. Hockey is his life. Now that he's captain of the Montreal Voyageurs, he won't let anything jeopardize that, especially the sexy Russian whose hard body keeps him awake at night.

Boston Bears captain Ilya Rozanov is everything Shane's not. The self-proclaimed king of the ice, he's as cocky as he is talented. No one can beat him - except Shane. They've made a career on their legendary rivalry, but when the skates come off, the heat between them is undeniable. When Ilya realizes he wants more than a few secret hookups, he knows he must walk away. The risk is too great.

As their attraction intensifies, they struggle to keep their relationship out of the public eye. If the truth comes out, it could ruin them both. But when their need for each other rivals their ambition on the ice, secrecy is no longer an option...

Book good, narrator dreadful

I enjoyed this story quite a bit. It follows Two hockey players through many years starting just before they get drafted to rival nhl teams. The boys are very different but share a deep competitiveness and confusing sexual attraction.

For much of the book it is just little snapshots of brief encounters with each other and with assorted minor characters. Until they are men who finally fall in love. I thought it was quite well done.

The narration made me want to smack someone. I read a friend’s review who said how happy they were the narration improved from book one. I can hardly imagine it being worse. All the accents varied in style and thickness throughout the book. The women’s accents were painful to listen to. The tone often did not match text. For example one line was said at top volume with the next bit of dialogue something like “he said softly”. And then there was the inability to say Canadian place names. Ok Saskatchewan can be hard for some but Regina is not hard. They even have a slogan about their name rhyming with Vagina.

I enjoyed reading Heated Rivalry but listening to it , was even better!

Few months ago, during an Ice Hockey reading mood , I "discovered" Rachel Reid and her Ebook, Heated Rivalry .

Simply explained... It is one of the hottest and sweetest, Enemies to Lovers , MM Sports Romance I have ever read . And now, I am adding listened, to the statement above.

Tor Thom narration was phenomenal.
He embodied über confident , Bad Boy of Hockey ,and Russian Sex God, Ilya Rozanov perfectly. He nailed Ilya's Russian accent . It was even better than the one in my head.

The same goes for his portrayal of Canadian , all around good guy, sweet , friendly and charismatic , Good Boy of Hockey Shane Hollander.

And the hot AF, descriptive dirty-sexy and utterly delicious sexy times were AMAZING.

Full disclosure, I was a bit hesitant about buying this audio. Tor Thom is a , new to me, narrator and the reviews of Game Changer, book 1 were polarizing; some loved it passionately , others didn't. However, I followed my gut and liked the audio sample of this book Heated Rivalry . I am incredibly happy I took the chance as I clearly enjoyed listening to this audiobook. I am still on the fence about book 1 , Game Changer and it's more than likely , I will be skipping it.

Rachel Reid book and Tor Thom performance deserve my treasured audio credits. And that folks, is one high compliment coming from a certified audio credit hoarder, as me.😁😊😁😉 It's funny because is true!!!

5 stars for book 1 & 2

These books are brilliant. The writing is great, and so are the characters. I wasn’t sure about the narrator at first, but I fell in love with him also.

I love hockey books.

Alright. I don’t have any idea why. I don’t like hockey but I love hockey books. I have read any hockey book I can get my hands on; the good, the bad, the brilliant. I think I have listened to every M/M hockey book on audible and this my friends.... is the best.

It starts with a simple rivals to lovers story but it quickly gives each character so much depth and background as they struggle to come to terms with who they are from age 18 on. Ilya who is comfortable in his skin and identity but comes from a tough background and an unforgiving country and Shane who is struggling with who he is.

These two wouldn’t have worked if they had truly dated when they were 19 but as they aged they kinda became perfect for one another. No one can understand them like the other and so many times in romance novels you get the story but you don’t feel the connection. This book you totally get the connection, the feelings, the history and I just want to keep relistening over and over.

Buy it. Now. Do it. Worth all the credits.

And yes Tor’s accent for Kip in the previous book is well.... not the best and off putting but I’ve listened to him before and he’s brilliant and he BRINGS it full force in this one.

It is harder to write praise than criticism but my gawd this book is just amazing.

Hot and actually kinda funny

The main characters have such great chemistry together and their snarky remarks to each other are actually really funny! Hot of course.
