Publisher's Summary

You can build a team, but you have to find your home. 

Rupert Smythe is fond of many things. Callum Morrison isn’t one of them. 

Rupert is a quiet, thoughtful business man and, sadly, a total wimp. Maybe not the ideal candidate to run a professional hockey team, but he signed on to do it anyway. As his life has reminded him on an almost daily basis since, this isn’t the most brilliant idea he’s ever had. And that was before Callum showed up. 

Being in the spotlight is just part of being a professional athlete, but Callum needs a break. He arrives in Moncton unannounced, determined to help grow the team he just bought, and under the assumption he’d be welcome. Possibly he should have tried to make a better first impression. 

Callum figures he can push through the rest of the summer, never expecting two kids, a host of friends, and his growing feelings for Rupert to derail everything he has ever believed about what he wanted, and what he could have.

Amazing! More, more, more please!

This is the first book in this genre that I have been compelled to review. I’m not new to this genre but this author is new to me and it looks like I have a lot of catching up to do.

This is the falling in love story of two men and the life they create along the way to their HEA. The characters are fully fleshed out, the emotions and motivations feel possible. There are plenty of minor characters that I hope to read/learn more about in other books. I am so happy this book was made available on Audible. I’m looking forward to so much more, what a pleasure!

Nearly perfect!

I really enjoyed this. The concept of found family is always a favorite of mine. This was a fun and sweet enemies-to-lovers story and I loved seeing Rupert and Callum come together. I also liked the children and their roles in this story.

This book was longer than I expected but I didn’t want it to end! I really wish there was an epilogue, if only to give me more Rupert/Callum time.

Fyi, this isn’t technically part of a series but it has characters from the author’s other books which makes for a slightly frustrating read at times. I feel like I was missing important insight into the side characters since I haven’t read the author’s other works. I got the gist of their characters but they weren’t as fleshed out as the MCs, as if the reader should already know their backstory and basic info.

I love love LOVE this narrator!! He does such an amazing job of bringing these characters to life and reads it with so much emotion. 5 Star narration for sure!!

The MCs, kids, and romance make this book an easy 5 Star read! I’d love to see how this little family is doing in the future.

Michael did an awesome job with the narration

This is one of my favorite books and I am so happy that is finally on audio well maybe not. cuz now I realize I've been pronouncing everything wrong. however I still love the book and I still love my pronunciations better because you know I got more flair.

Good story/good narration!

I’m a ardent reader of Ms Wayland’s work, so I was very excited when one of them was available as an audiobook. It is a great story, and the narrator did justice to the story. I recommend it.

So glad these are finally coming to audio.

I’ve ready the MM books in this series a couple of times now, and they are so good. The recording was awesome. Hope the same narrator will do the rest. Would totally buy them.

Low Relationship Angst

I really appreciated that there was almost no relationship angst between the two main characters. There was plenty of excitement outside of their relationship though. Sometimes the story dragged a little, especially during the long and chatty/introspective sex scenes, and the ending felt abrupt. I liked the side characters and how understanding Rupert was.

Perfect, Just Perfect

I have been waiting for an audiobook of this novel since I first read it, and it was well worth the wait. The characters’ voices are spot-on, and the intense emotional depth comes through in every chapter. One of my favorite books in print, and now in audio.
