After last season’s heartbreaking loss to his hockey team’s archrival, Jacksonville Sea Storm goalie Riley Hunter is ready to let go of the past and focus on a winning season. His new roommate, Ethan Kennedy, is a loud New Yorker with a passion for social justice that matches his role as the team’s enforcer. The quieter Riley is attracted to Ethan and has no idea what to do about it.
Ethan has no hesitations. As fearless as his position demands, he rushes into things without much thought for the consequences.Though they eventually warm to their passionate new bond, it doesn’t come without complications. While trying to financially help Ethan, Riley must hide his family’s wealth so as not to hurt Ethan’s immense pride. For their relationship to work, Ethan will need to learn when to keep the gloves on and let someone help him—and Riley will have to learn it’s okay to let someone past his defenses.
Take two, seriously hot, bisexual, hysterical hockey players and put them together as roomies and you get Save of the Game. Ethan and Riley are adorable, but they are also sexy and intense hockey players who love the game. Ethan is loud, boisterous, and gruff while Riley is more subdued and polished. The way these two men love and support one another made my heart so happy and gave me a lot of swoon worthy moments while reading!
Having not read the first book in this series, I found it very easy to fall into the pace and set up of the team dynamics and story. The author writes a very wonderful and likable cast of characters that I want to know more about. Even though Riley and Ethan are the main focus of this book, the other teammates and characters are just as well developed and fun! Kudos to the author for this well done, well written, fun, funny, adorable story!
