Publisher's Summary

Foster:

"Look out for Zach, and don't hit on him." My brother's request sounds easy enough. Keep an eye out for his best friend on campus and keep my hands to myself. Easy. Even if Zach is a quintessential nerd, who I've always thought was cute, I don't have the time to think with my...stick. There's only one stick I should be focused on this year, and that's my hockey stick. My goal once I graduate is to get an NHL contract. The last thing I need is a distraction. On or off the ice. Only, keeping to the rules is harder than I thought it would be.

Zach:

People confuse me. And no one more than Foster Grant. I've barely spoken two words to him in the whole time I've known him, but the second I step foot on campus, he's impossible to shake. I can never anticipate his next move. And whenever we're together, my next move is a total mystery as well. I want to give in to him, but that might mean coming clean about something I've never been bothered about before. I'm still carrying my V-card. And I think it's time to turn it in.

Contains mature themes.

Puck yes!!!

Loved the voices!! excellent narration. Love how passionate Foster sounded and tough...omg, I loved both voices!! Okay, the male voices..the female ones needed some help lol!!

Cute story, love how the need and the hockey player complement each other so much. Also, Ray is awesome. everyone needs a ray.

I had so many laughs reading this and enjoyed it so much. Definitely some sweet and spicy scenes!!

The voices....

I had a hard time listening to this book. The story is well enough, but I might read the rest instead of listening.

I'm not sure who reads for who since both narrators are new to me. But which ever voices Foster needs to learn to take a breath. It was hard figuring out which was dialog, and what wasn't because he never let there be space in between. He talked a million miles per minute.

As for Zack's voice... I didn't like it.

There was also this issue where both narrators didn't accommodate for the change of different characters' dialog. It was hard to tell who was speaking... except for the coach and the horrible, disgusting woman voices. Ugh... that was super ugly.

It really felt like this book wasn't taken seriously. Neither in plot or in casting.

As for the story... Eh, it was okay. There was nothing that got my blood pumping, wondering, waiting for what will happen. It was predictable and a little boring.

Another Great from Eden Finley

After the Fake Boyfriend series, Finley has become an auto buy for me. Adding James as co-author worked well. I love the story and These two narrators hit it out of the park.

I have listened to many audio books over time and the combination of Iggy Toma and Alexander Cendese just clicks. Their voices enhance the story like no other.

Hockey and young love is like crack to me. And these young men come to life in the book. I’ve read this book multiple times already and I’m thrilled it’s now in audio book format.

Incredibly Sweet Romance

So damn cute! I've read a couple of Eden Finley's books before and found them a little agressive (in a good way), and way heavy on the sex - this one is super sweet. Twenty-one year old guys, actually acting twenty-one. What a great idea.

The hockey scenes are short and easy to follow, if you're not into hockey you'll be fine. The story is mainly about Foster courting Zach, and adorably nerdy Zach's first foray into love. Nicely done!

Wonderfully performed by Iggy and Alexander.

Neglecting my Husband, until Bed Time!

This is such a well written story that honestly is so easy to relate to, feel the highs and lows, and love the characters! I typically am able to listen here and there, but this book has you (or shall I say me) completely wanting more and more. Thank you once again to Eden Finley and Saxon James for a terrific and suspenseful story chapter by chapter! Loved it!!! Meanwhile, when it’s time for bed… my husband benefits from all my erotic pleasures that I happily provide!!!

No unnecessary drama but not enough of it either

The performance of both voice actors was excellent but the story was a little boring maybe because it didn’t have unnecessary drama but also maybe not enough drama to keep me entertained throughout. I read quite a few of these hokey m/m books but I think this one lacked in hockey aspects. There just wasn’t enough of the sport integrated in the plot. The couple of the story was cute and I liked both characters especially the supposedly nerdy one and how he liked to understand human interactions on a deeper level and also the jock not being dumb is always a plus. Overall it’s a nice read/listen to kill some time.

Perfect low-angst MM romance

4.5

Hate the cover, loved the story. A breath of fresh air after the snooze-fest I'd just read.
Foster is a riot. Zach is the sweetest. Amazing complements to a fun MM romance 💜

And the narrators? Spot on! Especially Alexander! I hate his female voices, but other than that, he owned the character.

Great book

I really enjoyed this book. It is also nice to listen to the male aspect of a story line in a males voice, it just makes it more real for me. I liked how the addressed the gay community in the line of sports!!
