Becoming a goaltender in the NHL is the only thing I ever wanted for myself.
Two years ago, I was the best goalie in the league, for the third time. With our Stanley Cup win, the Austin Arrows were on top of the world. Nothing could possibly bring us down.
Turns out, even when you’re at the top, you can find yourself back at rock bottom.
But it gets worse.
Not only did the team fall from grace, then I did too. I was accused of something I didn’t do. And now I’m being forced to repair my tarnished reputation.
Only I don’t know how to do that.
When the suggestion is made for me to pull off this ruse for the media, I know what I’m getting into. I also know there’s only one right answer.
But it’s complicated, and I’m not the only one who could get hurt.
There’s only one major problem.
I can’t say no.
ARC received for an honest review
It has been a long while since I have read a m/f romance from Nicole Edwards (for no other reason that I LOVE her m/m books and have been focusing on them).
But I am back in the game with her new series, The Season.
Besides, a Nicole Edwards book and hockey - I am in like Flynn with that! #InstaClick #HockeyHotties
The Season: Rush was everything I have come to expect from a Nicole Edwards book.
Cover lust. Lovable, complex characters. Laugh out loud moments. Hot as Hades sexy times. Killer Asses
"He has a killer ass. Like, top ten best asses ever. Right up there with... I don't know, but still. Top ten. Maybe top 5. Yes, definitely top five. And I want to bite it."
Ellie and Kingston's relationship is not the norm. Could you go into a pretend relationship with someone you have true feeling for?
I adored their shared history, the way their worlds have always been intertwined even when they weren't in the position they are in now. And besides, who doesn't love a story where the woman is in lust with her brother's best friend.
I couldn't help but want Ellie & Kingston to be more. To want more. To have more.
I loved that we got both POV's (and a 3rd POV thrown in at times for good measure, but I don't want to spoil what that's all about for you), and especially loved getting into Kingston's head as he fights the distractions that he faces on and off the ice. Focus. Puck, patience. React.
Ms Edwards writing drew me right in, I felt like I was in the arena, could feel the chill of the ice, hear the roar of the crowd. I was completely immersed into the world of hockey.
From the first word until the last, I couldn't put this book down, even forgoing food so I could read what happened next.
There are plenty of great secondary characters, some of whom I hope become a bigger part of The Season series.
Now while I am waiting for the next book in the seriess #IwanttoscaleMountRushmore
