Publisher's Summary

Cohen: It turns out making out with my best friend in high school could be considered gay. Who knew? Apparently, everyone but me.

Now that it's been pointed out, I can't help reliving it in my head. Repeatedly. Good-bye Denial Town, hello Confusionville.

When my path leads me down the gay dating app route, I don't expect to meet anyone I like, but then I meet him. He can't be more opposite than me. He's smart, he hates hockey, and he identifies as demi - something I've never heard of. Yet I can't deny something's there.

Seth: All my life, I've felt broken. Sick of being asked if I could be gay by ex-girlfriends, friends, and even my parents, I join a gay dating app to prove a point.

I don't expect to find what's always been missing. A real connection. The problem is, I'm too scared to meet him in person. He's a hockey player, and I fear when he finds out my twin plays for the NHL, I'll be overshadowed by my overachieving brother. Again. Worse yet, what happens if we meet and that connection isn't the same?

When I tell him I'm not ready, he's disappointed but supportive. Fate, on the other hand, isn't as accepting.

Contains mature themes.

Makes me want to get interested in hockey

I love Eden's books that almost always have an element of hockey in them. She makes me want to go watch a game. I'm not familiar with Saxon James but I can see the slight difference in Eden's storyline pattern.

What put the icing on the cake was the awesome duo of Alexander Candese and Iggy Toma. I love Iggy's voice so much. These two work so well together. It seems kind of organic.

This was all in all a great story and an awesome listen.

Best of the series

I love the CU Hockey Series. This one is my absolute favorite of the bunch. I love the characters Seth and Cohen. Both discovering who they are and falling for one another without meeting each other first. I can't wait for more.

Such a Great Series!

Revisited on audio and it elevated the story so much! This narrator duo is just so perfect for this series!

I am really enjoying this series! I am so happy we got Seth and Cohen's story. I just knew there was this lovable, caring person under all the fun and games Cohen has been a part of on the team up to this point. Both he and Seth are questioning their sexuality and the way they begin their relationship was so well done. They got to know each other without any pretenses of hockey or family or friends...it was so sweet to watch their exchanges back and forth...they built such a level of trust and comfort with each other before they ever met face to face, I loved that! And then once they did get together face to face their relationship just elevated to the next level...it was steamy, tender,touching, and had me laughing out loud at times.
We also get so much page time with Foster, Zach, Beck, Jacobs...they are such a part of both these men, and it was glorious to revisit with them. It made me want to go back and start all over again with book 1!

Adorable Coupling

Psychologically astute and just the right way to get acquainted and develop a solid foundation for sexual exploration. The boys voices were superbly spoken by the narrators. Loved the story and hope one like it will develop in my own life. Truly the ice hockey games were realistic and easy to imagine being either a player or someone in the audience.

So good!

I always love these straight to queer stories. You think they are going to be super cliché but it is so emotionally heartfelt and the writers have such a good description of how it is to come out not only as a Demi sexual every day individual but also as a bisexual athlete. I definitely plan on listening through this book again when I need my heart to get all warm and fuzzy! Not to mention any book that Alexander Cendese and Iggy Toma read together is just perfection. I have very few authors that I thoroughly enjoy listening to and solely pick books just because they are narrating it but these two take the cake! If you’re thinking about downloading this book trust me it’s worth the credit !!!

Had potential

The story had so much potential but it was ultimately disappointing. It was too preachy and towards the end employed the tired trope of a big misunderstanding to create tension. Also one of the main characters does something to interfere in the others’s life in an unacceptable way, which is ultimately glassed over. And the narration of the parents and coach was absurd. It was a caricature of old people.

So sweet

While not my favorite of the series, I still loved the couple and that fact that things happen at the same time through out these first few books. The narration was awesome.
