Hockey is my life. And it’s a great one. There’s an endless line of women, and I get to hang with my best friend Oli. Everything is perfect until she shows up. Oli’s twin sister, Flynn…hates my guts. I don’t blame her. I’m part of one of the worst nights of her life.
Now she’s next door and seeing her every day is killing me slowly. I wonder if we can ever get back to being friends. The way she looks at me sometimes, well, let’s just say my hockey stick isn’t the only thing that’s feeling hard these days.
But if she finds out the secrets I’m keeping, forgiveness will be the last thing on her mind..
Y’all. Ok. I got a confession. *eye roll* Yes, another one. Just let me great ok?! Anywayssssss, I got s confession. I freaking love hockey. It’s legit my favorite sport. And that’s saying a lot cause I’m not a sport person. I mean really, I’m not. I don’t understand most sports things. But hockey? Hockey I fucking get. Where else do you get to see hot guys, in tight pants who get to legitimately beat up the opposing team and only get sent to a penalty box for a few moments?! You can go out there was a grudge and break people’s knee caps and your team will just say good effort!! So yeah ya girl is allll over that! So when I saw this was a hockey book and his ass plays for the Chicago Blackhawks I was like SCORE! They are my favorite team! And Jonathon Toews is my favorite player which is why I may have been using him to imagine Myles. *shrugs* What can I say? He’s cute.
*clears throat* Okay I’m done being a total fan girl. Well maybe not but I’m gonna try to at least be slightly professional here. I chose this book on netgalley mainly cause it was a hockey book. And I’m happy that I did cause if I’d gone by the rest of the Synopsis I probably would have passed. I’m not a huge fan of friends becoming lovers. Yes the idea is great: one day these people who for years finally notice that the other friend is hot and the other one does the same. But 9 times out of 10 that person really ends up in the friend zone dying a painful death. Yeah no thanks, I’ll pass. I embarrass myself enough in real life that I don’t need that in my literary world.
But I really liked this book. I loved the relationships the most if I’m honest. Flynn, Oli, and Myles had been friends for years when something bad happened to rip them apart. If wasn’t until Flynn has to move in with her twin brother, Oliver, that she realizes that the feeling she had for Myles, Oli’s best friend and neighbor, are still there. And Myles is the perfect book boyfriend. Like for real. When dude decided to up his game up he did that!
So if you’re looking for a cute, sexy book about hockey players and lost loves, this is definitely one to check out. This is my first book by Stephens but I don’t think it will be my last. BTW, can I put in an order for a Sloane\Oli book, please?!?!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ out of 5 stars
