Publisher's Summary

New York Admirals captain Scott Hunter takes his pregame rituals very seriously. In this case, it's not just a lucky smoothie he's craving - it's the man who made it.  

Pro hockey star Scott Hunter knows a good thing when he sees it. So, when a smoothie made by juice bar barista Kip Grady precedes Scott breaking his on-ice slump, he's desperate to recreate the magic...and to get to know the sexy, funny guy behind the counter.  

Kip knew there was more to Scott's frequent visits than blended fruit, but he never let himself imagine being invited back to Scott's penthouse. Or kissed with reckless abandon, never mind touched everywhere all at once. When it happens, it's red-hot, incredible, and frequent, but also only on Scott's terms and always behind his closed apartment doors.  

Scott needs Kip in his life, but with playoff season approaching, the spotlight on him is suddenly brighter than ever. He can't afford to do anything that might derail his career...like introducing the world to his boyfriend. Kip is ready to go all-in with Scott - but how much longer will he have to remain a secret?

Surprisingly Touching / Disappointing Narration

This isn’t my usual fare, but I enjoyed it despite the OTT sex scenes. Even had tears in my eyes a couple times - it’s a sweet story. Unfortunately, the narration of Kip is distracting and makes him sound like a dolt rather than the bright young guy the author describes. I never could get over it, right to the end, it grated on me. Is it still worth it? Might be better as a read, if you switch it up; otherwise, hopefully the voicing of Kip doesn’t bother you as much as it did me.

Horrible Narration - Ruined the Book

When I finished reading this book, I was SO EXCITED to add the audiobook to my library. I wasted my money. I tried to listen to it several times. Tor Thom makes Kip sound like a 40-year-old idiot. I couldn't even get past the first chapter. Please, please have this re-recorded by Cooper North since he took over the series. I won't even bother trying Heated Rivalry because Thom narrates that one too. Such a disappointment.

Nice start to a hockey series!

I enjoyed this one and look forward to diving into the rest of the series. It's a nice easy listen without emotional hand-grenades. The only real angst is centered on the two MC's relationship given that one of them is the Captain of a pro hockey franchise based in NYC and coming out is a risky option. Break-up leads to make-up during the Stanley Cup finals!

I agree with other reviewers that Kip's fake Brooklyn accent from the narrator is an irritation. But by the time I was 10% in I had adjusted to it and it wasn't driving me to stop listening.

It was on sale for $5 so I picked it up and glad I did. Solid 4****.

Tor for the Score

Aural pleasure!

Rachel Reid offers a hea hockey romance. She is a new-to-me author. Wonderful story and ... hot, hot steamy scenes. Nicely done, Rachel.

Tor is fabulous. We all love his velvety baritone. The accent and character changes are so nicely done. Bravo!

MM Aural Sandwich

The story is hot enough to melt the ice in Toronto or Georgia. ;)

Tor Thom's narration is amazing. Subtle but clear voice changes. That voice... wow! I would be the puck between these two players.

Wow! Hot Read! Stunning performance

I love sports romance and I loved this book. Bravo to Rachel for a hawt(!) story. Tor... wow. Speechless. That voice should come with a warning: NSFW. Thank you for a pleasant read, sir! ;)

Sexy Story. Delicious narration.

Fun romance story. The outcome was predictable, but the journey there was wonderful. The narrator... Wow. That voice is amazing. Bravo, Tor Thom. You can read to me anytime. ;)

Really bad narrator choice

I've loved the book and have reread it several times, but the narrator was not the best choice for this book. I only got about 10min in before I gave up because that voice did not fit the character at all. It's a shame, 'cause I was really looking forward to listening to this book but I guess I'll just stay with the ebook.

Phenomenal Audiobook!

Rachel Reid! I love the story. Few writers can write hockey well. Rachel is phenomenal.

The narration is on point. Tor's voice will make a man or woman blush. Listen and enjoy.

couldn't even get to chapter 2

the narration was horrible. The main character was spoken in a voice that sounded like an idiot. not great. might be better if read and not listened to.

Worst accent

I enjoyed the story but I almost didn’t finish the book because of the narrator’s horrible attempt at a Brooklyn accent.
