Blurb: Hockey player Jason Monroe lives a double life—star defenseman and soon-to-be Olympian on the ice and closeted gay man outside the rink. A serious relationship is out of the question, and Jason makes do with anonymous sex in barroom bathrooms, not willing to take the chance on coming out as gay in a decidedly macho sport.
Advisor to the US Olympic hockey team Patrick Parker knows a thing or two about being a professional hockey player who’s not out. He’s fifteen years older than Jason, and when he senses the sexy younger man is interested, he knows he shouldn’t give in to the attraction.
The two men can’t keep their hands off each other, though, and with each heated encounter it gets harder to hide their relationship. When their world blows up around them, forcing them into the limelight, though, will their love survive or be put on ice?

Review: Oh, God. Damn, this book was good! I LOVE Hockey, and hot men, especially when said hot men are all over each other. This book is all about what happens when you mix all the aforementioned attributes into one story.
Jason Monroe is living his dream as a star player on the US Olympic Hockey team. Patrick Parker is an Advisor to the team and a former professional hockey player. The two fight their mutual attraction initially, but a passionately fierce kiss leaves them aching to explore a relationship that could have disastrous consequences for them both. Not only is Patrick drastically older than Jason, but there is the teacher/student aspect of a forbidden relationship as well. If the coaches and players can get past that, how will they respond to their teammate being gay?
The character development in this book was fantastic. Patrick knows he’s gay and is open and out with his family and close friends. Jason hides his sexuality from everyone including himself to an extent, but Patrick gets under his skin. Patrick knows who he is and what he wants, or who he wants that is, he wants Jason. Both men have to overcome personal and professional obstacles to be together. Stolen moments hidden away in motel rooms are wrapped around not only some extremely passionate sex, but room service and long conversations that ultimately lead to love.
My only complaint is that the story was too short; a few expletives flew from my mouth when my kindle displayed “the end”! I was quite pleased to visit the authors Amazon page and see that she already has a sequel in the works. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of M/M erotic romance stories.
