Now that he’s captain of the Montreal Voyageurs, he won’t let anything jeopardize that, especially the sexy Russian whose hard body keeps him awake at night. These two MCs are so well written, so well developed and the chemistry they have is out of this world. But when their need for each other rivals their ambition on the ice, secrecy is no longer an option…”, I really thought there would be that forbidden love part where the two find ways to be together. They were all the same, with the few changes being some positions, angles, and hotels (cause they only hooked up at hotels besides that (1) time). not the best and off putting but I’ve listened to him before and he’s brilliant and he BRINGS it full force in this one.

We follow the story of Shane and Ilya, two rival hockey players that have an enemies to lovers Romance that flourishes in the span of seven years. It makes it extremely difficult for me to care about the act when I don’t even know the characters; I feel like I start the book being already behind. Reid's depiction of their immediate physical combustion contrasted with a satisfying emotional slow-burn is masterful. Ahora leeré los demás de la serie para llegar al sexto que es la continuación de está maravillosa historia. There was a chemistry there from the start, but the rivalry and competitiveness kept these two from anything but angry sex for a long time.I know many of us care more about characters than plot, and usually, a plot is irrelevant to me in a romance book. The attraction develops first, with the romance taking quite a bit (cough-seven years-cough) longer.

And the author mostly told their love story and their character growth through sex – I thought it was not a small feat to accomplish, especially to convince a reader like myself. Shane e soprattutto Ilya sono due personaggi meravigliosi, così veri, con i loro dubbi e i loro battibecchi. Thank you again to everyone who has taken the time to read my books (I know there are endless amazing m/m romance novels to choose from out there; I’m working on a mountain of a TBR list myself), and especially to those who have left reviews and reached out to me to let me know they enjoyed my writing.I have no idea how the two started seeing each other differently when they know almost nothing about each other, haven’t had a conversation without it becoming about sex or their rivalry, or weren’t even friends. Reid draws the reader in from the very beginning, changing things up and taking us along for the ride as we are given "glass seats" to Shane and Ilya's years long evolution from enemies/rivals with benefits, to secret friends/rivals with benefits, to eventually rivals as committed lovers/partners with a HFN ending. They had a deep respect for each other as players and people and it really showed throughout the story. In between these time jumps, I can count on one hand how many cute scenes there were: Ilya and the kids; the support of Shane’s parents because there is nothing better than parents accepting their children as who they are; when Shane told Ilya to talk to him in Russian because it’s easier for him; the time Ilya was worried when Shane got hurt; the time Ilya made Shane a tuna melt, and they laid down together. Their relationship starts in 2008 and the book ends sixteen months after July 2017 (you do the math).

I also seldom want to start a book over immediately upon finishing it and I'm still tempted to jump back in this bublé.Oh, this sounds like something I have to add to my TBR pile - I struggled with how to feel about Notes on an Execution,. I liked seeing how it began and how the relationship developed throughout their teens into their late 20's. They take years to admit their “feelings” because all they did in those years was hook up and leave before someone saw them together. Their banter had me doing that weird half bark, half laugh thing that's guaranteed to make strangers look at you like you've lost your damn mind.

But they slowly opened up to each other about their pasts and what was hurting them, and I loved how they ran to be there for each other whenever they needed help. Sometimes, in this trope, the couple goes from hating each other to loving each other in such a short time that it's not even believable.Why enemies to lovers relationships seem more realistic to me than a pro hockey player meeting a love interest at a smoothie joint, I have no idea. So obviously these guys come from very different backgrounds yet they are the perfect match for one another.
